Video transcript

let's once again see if we can order now a different set of decimals from least to greatest and once again I encourage you to pause this video and try to do this on your own so let's go to the most significant place the ones place here then none of these have any ones so then we could go to the next significant place which is a tenths place this has five tenths this has six tenths this has one tenth this has five tenths this has one tenth 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 so I've ordered it by what's going on in the tenths place now both of these have the same number of tenths let's move to the hundreds place to figure out which of these is larger this one has six hundredths this has five hundredths so this one is larger it has more hundredths same number of tenths more hundreds and hundreds are obviously more significant than thousands so it doesn't matter which one has the more thousands it matters that this one has more tents and actually this one has more thousands as well but now let's go look at these two these have the same number of tenths they both have five tenths but this one has six hundredths while this one only has two hundredths so this one is larger and then finally this one of course had six tenths so this one had the most tents so we don't even have to look at the other places here and we're done
