While comparing single digit numbers with two digit numbers, we see that two digit number is always greater than the single digit number.

__Comparing numbers__

__Recall __

**More or less**

Sesame balls are less than gooseberries.

Gooseberries
are more than sesame balls.

__Learn__

Compare
the number of flowers.

Yellow
pot has 9 flowers and blue pot has 5 flowers.

Yellow
pot has more flowers than blue pot.

9
is greater than 5.

Blue
pot has fewer flowers than yellow pot.

5 is less than 9.

Blue
pot has 5 flowers and green pot also has 5 flowers.

Both
pots have equal flowers. 5 is equal to 5.

__Practice__

objects on left and right side and circle the correct statement among the given
three.

**Comparing numbers**

Let
us compare the single digit number with two digit number for example., 9 and 15

15
is greater than 9

**While
comparing single digit numbers with two digit numbers, we see that two digit
number is always greater than the single digit number.**

1.
Let us compare the two digit numbers with different tens 25 and 35

It
is enough to compare tens place of the two given numbers. There are 2 tens in
25. 3 tens in 35.

2
tens is less than 3 tens.

So,
25 is less than 35.

35
is greater than 25.

2.
Let us compare the two digit numbers with different ones 27 and 24

Here
the tens places are equal. Then we have to compare the ones.

There
are 7 ones in 27.

4
ones in 24.

7
ones is greater than 4 ones.

So,
27 is greater than 24.

24
is less than 27.

**Teacher Note:** Teacher should insist that while comparing two digit numbers with different tens place children can compare only tens place
. If the tens place are the same, they need to compare the ones place.

__Practice__

**Choose the correct answer.**

i) 75 is greater than

** 71** 85
98 75

ii) 40 is less than

25
** 49** 39
40

iii) 56 is equal to

60
65 ** 56** 57

__Try this__

Put a tick (✔) for the correct answer and (X) for the wrong answer.

i) 3 tens 4 ones is greater than 2 tens 3 ones (**✔**)

ii) 6 tens 5 ones is less than 2 tens 3 ones (**X**)

iii) 5 tens 3 ones is
equal to 53 (**✔**)

iv) 55 is equal to 56 (**X**)

v) 65 is greater than 64 (**✔**)

vi) 74 is less than 47 (**X**)
