4th Grade Math - Compare Whole Numbers Lesson

To compare two whole numbers, compare the digits in each place from left to right.

Example:

Compare the digits in each place from left to right. Start with the hundred thousands place.

6 = 6

The digits in the hundred thousands place are equal, so compare the digits in the ten thousands place.

1 = 1

The digits in the ten thousands place are equal, so compare the digits in the thousands place.

2 = 2

The digits in the thousands place are equal, so compare the digits in the hundreds place.

2 = 2

The digits in the hundreds place are equal, so compare the digits in the tens place.

4 = 4

The digits in the tens place are equal, so compare the digits in the ones place.
