00:00:01.110 --> 00:00:05.980
Which is greater — 974 or 115?
00:00:08.160 --> 00:00:17.450
First, let’s line up our two numbers in a place value chart: 974, 115.
00:00:18.660 --> 00:00:24.610
To compare numbers, we always start by comparing their largest place value digit.
00:00:25.870 --> 00:00:31.330
In this case, the largest place value for both of our numbers is the hundreds place.
00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:35.750
So which is larger, nine or one?
00:00:37.420 --> 00:00:39.350
Nine is greater than one.
00:00:39.630 --> 00:00:45.520
And that means 974 is greater than 115.
