Ordering decimals

To complete this quiz you need to be able to order decimals. Here is an example to help you.

Which is bigger, 0.3 or 0.25?

Ever so many people make the mistake of saying 0.25 is bigger because 25 is bigger than 3. This is very wrong!

Remember the place value of decimals.

0.3 means three tenths.

0.25 means 2 tenths and 5 hundredths.

Three tenths is bigger than 2 tenths, so 0.3 is bigger.
