Is six hundred eighteen thousand eight hundred fifty less than, equal to, or greater than 61805?
00:00:15.460 --> 00:00:24.560
The first thing we wanna do is take the words six hundred eighteen thousand eight hundred and fifty and write them in digits.
00:00:26.190 --> 00:00:29.130
I can use a place value chart, like this one.
00:00:30.680 --> 00:00:36.320
Our problem told us that we have six hundred and eighteen thousands.
00:00:37.710 --> 00:00:47.910
So we need to add 618 into our thousands places, 618 thousands.
00:00:47.910 --> 00:00:55.410
We also have in the same value eight hundred fifty.
00:00:57.310 --> 00:01:03.000
We can add eight hundred as an eight in the hundreds place.
00:01:04.550 --> 00:01:06.390
And now we need to add fifty.
00:01:07.990 --> 00:01:13.300
50 would be equal to five tens and zero units.
00:01:13.640 --> 00:01:16.510
So we write 50 as five zero.
00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:27.870
We’re not finished yet because this question is asking us to compare the value we just found to 61805.
00:01:29.790 --> 00:01:33.600
Let’s take this number and line it up with our other number.
00:01:35.120 --> 00:01:55.530
The five goes in the units place, a zero in the tens place, an eight in the hundreds place, a one in the thousands place, and finally, a six in the ten thousands place.
00:01:57.820 --> 00:02:02.940
Now that both of our values are in the same format, it’s very easy to compare.
00:02:05.120 --> 00:02:14.940
618850 is greater 61805.
00:02:16.810 --> 00:02:20.500
We use the greater than symbol to represent this.
00:02:20.860 --> 00:02:30.140
And we say 618850 is greater than 61805.
