# Read write and order decimals least

## Ordering decimals and fractions

None of these have any ones. So if we just look at the tenths place, the ones that have the fewest tenths-- this has only one tenth, this one only has one tenth, this one has five tenths, this one has five tenths, and then this one has six tenths. And we're done. Now let's go look at-- we have to pick between these two. This one has 0 tenths. But this one has six hundredths, while this one only has two hundredths, so this one is larger. Compare them on that. So we don't even have to look at the other places here. Order these numbers from least to greatest. Comparing decimals Video transcript We're asked to order the following numbers from least to greatest, and I encourage you to pause this video and try to think of it on your own. This has 7 hundredths. This one has 9 thousandths. So out of these three, this one is the largest, because this one actually had some thousandths out of these three.

This one has no tenths, no hundredths. So I've ordered it by what's going on in the tenths place. Now let's move to the hundredths place. Compare them on that.

This has 0 hundredths, so this one has neither tenths nor hundredths. So now let's look at the thousandths place. This one has six hundredths. And the key here is go to the place value that's most significant-- I guess you could say-- that has the most value. And this one has 0 thousandths as well. So if we just look at the tenths place, the ones that have the fewest tenths-- this has only one tenth, this one only has one tenth, this one has five tenths, this one has five tenths, and then this one has six tenths. This one has 0 thousandths.

So if we just look at the tenths place, the ones that have the fewest tenths-- this has only one tenth, this one only has one tenth, this one has five tenths, this one has five tenths, and then this one has six tenths.

Well, let's work through it together now. They have no ones here. Same number of tenths, more hundredths. And hundredths are obviously more significant than thousandths, so it doesn't matter which one has the more thousandths.

So let me then go to the next decimal place to the right. This one has 7 hundredths.
