00:00:00.670 --> 00:00:10.830
Use less than, equal to, or greater than to complete the following: seven meters is blank to 461 millimeters.
00:00:11.690 --> 00:00:16.140
It is true that one meter is equal to 1000 millimeters.
00:00:16.800 --> 00:00:22.800
So to compare these numbers, let’s go ahead and change the seven meters to be in millimeters.
00:00:23.600 --> 00:00:28.810
So if there are 1000 millimeters in one meter, how many would be in seven?
00:00:29.480 --> 00:00:32.770
Well, we simply multiply by seven to the 1000.
00:00:33.370 --> 00:00:37.330
So we found that seven meters is equal to 7000 millimeters.
00:00:37.790 --> 00:00:41.960
So let’s go ahead and replace seven meters with 7000 millimeters.
00:00:42.670 --> 00:00:47.860
So 7000 millimeters is blank to 461 millimeters.
00:00:48.710 --> 00:00:52.940
Since they’re both in millimeters, we just need to compare the numbers.
00:00:53.470 --> 00:00:57.290
And 7000 is larger than 461.
00:00:57.840 --> 00:01:00.060
So we need to use the greater than symbol.
00:01:00.700 --> 00:01:03.870
So the greater than sign will be our final answer.
