**Step It Out**

Question 1.

Jacob is going to the market. He wants to walk the route that is the shorter distance. Which of the two routes should Jacob take, red or orange?

A. Shade the hundredths model for each decimal distance.

Answer: 0.74

B. Compare the distances. Write <, >, or =.

0.74 0.8

Answer: <

C. Which route should Jacob take?

Answer:

Red color route

D. Use a number line to check your answer. Find 0.74 and 0.8 on the number line.

Answer:

red line is shorter then orange line

E. How does the number line support your answer? Explain.

Answer:

Orange line is longer then the red line,

which tells the red line is shorter route

Explanation:

Jacob is going to the market.

He wants to walk the route that is the shorter distance.

The given routes are orange route 0.8km and red route 0.74km,

when we compare the red route is shorter than the orange route.

**Turn and Talk** How else could you compare the decimals?

Answer:

Compare the whole number part first, if they are same then go to the next step.

Compare the tenths place, if they are different then move to the next digit.

Compare the hundredths place, f they are different then move to the next digit and so on.

Explanation:

For example;

In the above problem the given routes are 0.74km and 0.80km

compare the tenths place of decimal to know the greater than or less than.

Question 2.

compare the tenths place of both the pieces of water melon,

2.44 is greater than 2.41

**Turn and Talk** When would it not be necessary to compare the hundredths place of a pair of decimals?

Answer:

Comparing decimals means finding out the larger and the smaller decimal number,

when numbers in tenths is same then move to the hundredths place.

**Check Understanding**

Question 1.

Shade the hundredths models and use the number line to compare 0.3 and 0.18. Write <, >, or =.

0.3 0.18

Answer:

0.3 > 0.18

Explanation:

To compare greater than or less than for the given decimals 0.3 and 0.18,

compare the tenths place of the numbers and represent on number line.

0.3 > 0.18

Question 2.

Use the place-value chart to compare the decimals. Write <, >, or =.

1.55 1.52

Answer: >

Explanation:

To compare greater than or less than for the given decimals 1.55 and 1.52,

compare the whole numbers first, if they are same then move to the tenths place.

Numbers in tenth place is same then move to the hundredths place to compare.

So, 1.55 > 1.52

**On Your Own**

Question 3.

Use Tools Chris has two kittens, Oscar and Tigre. Which kitten is heavier?

Shade the hundredths models for each weight.

Locate and label the weights on the number line.

Answer:

Complete the comparison. Write <, >, or =.

1.35 1.7

________ is heavier.

Answer:

1.7 is heavier.

Explanation:

To compare greater than or less than for the given decimals 1.35 and 1.7,

So,

**Use Structure** Use the place-value chart to compare the decimals. Write <, >, or =.

Question 4.

2.66 2.92

Answer:

Explanation:

A decimal place value chart helps to find the place value of the digits in a decimal number.

The digit 2 is in the ones place. Therefore, its place value is 2 ones or 2.

The digits 6 and 9 are in the tenths place. Therefore, its place value is 6 tenths or 0.6 and 9 tenths or 0.9.

The digits 6 and 2 are in the hundredths place.

Therefore, its place value is 6 hundredths or 0.06 and 2 hundredths or 0.09.

Question 5.

0.9 0.11

Answer:

Explanation:

A decimal place value chart helps to find the place value of the digits in a decimal number.

The digits 9 and 1 are in the tenths place. Therefore, its place value is 9 tenths or 0.9 and 1 tenths or 0.1

The digit 1 is in the hundredths place. Therefore, its place value is 1 hundredths or 0.01

Question 6.

**Open Ended** Shia is comparing 0.5 to a decimal with an unknown digit in the tenths place. Explain what the tenths digit can be for the decimal to be less than 0.5. Give an example.
