**Math in My World**

Example 1

The Tyee family is planning a road trip to the Grand Canyon. One route is 840 miles. A second route is 835 miles.

Which route is shorter?

Compare 835 and 840.

**One Way** Use a place-value chart.

**Another Way** Use a number line.

Since _____ is less than _____, the ______ route is shorter.

Answer:

The Tyee family is planning a road trip to the Grand Canyon.

One route is 840 miles. A second route is 835 miles.

840 is greater than 835 miles.
