**Comparison of Numbers**

Comparison enables us to identify what is greater or smaller between two objects and what is greatest and smallest among more than two objects.

**Greater Number**

In greater number, we identify which number is the bigger in comparison to then numbers.

Let us see the examples given below:

**Example:**

**\[>\]**

It means that \[\] is greater than \[\]**,**

‘>’ is the sign of 'greater than' or "bigger than' or ‘more than'.

\[>\] is read as

\[\] is greater than \[\]

**Smaller Numbers**

In smaller number, we have to identify which number is smaller or less than in comparison to the given numbers.

See the following examples:

**Example:**

It means is less than 3

'<" is the sign of "less than' or "smaller than".

Hence, is read as 2 is smaller than 3.

**Equal Numbers**

Equal means neither greater than nor less than.

** **

**Example:**

**Let's consider**

and

These numbers are equal because if one or more zeroes is put before any number the number remains unchanged. Thus and can be written as:

= or =

Where '=.' is the sign of equal.

And = is read as is equal to

**Comparison of Images**

The comparison of images means comparing the sizes or numbers of the pictures given. In other words, if a particular picture is bigger or smaller or equal in comparison to the other pictures given. It also means comparing the numbers of pictures between groups.

**Size Comparison**

Let's understand it through an example:

**Example:**

A B

In the above mentioned pictures (A) is smaller and (B) is bigger. Therefore, (A) is 3-aiiler in comparison to (B).

**Number Comparison**

Just see the two groups of pictures given below:

**Example:**

Group A Group B

Here group A has four keys and group B has two keys. Therefore, group A is greater than group B.

**Ascending and Descending Order**

Numbers can be arranged in ascending or descending order. In other words you can say that numbers can be arranged from smaller to bigger or bigger to smaller.

**Ascending Order**

In ascending order, numbers are arranged in the order of smallest to biggest.

For example: are in ascending order.

in ascending order.

** **

**Example:**

Arrange the following numbers in ascending order:

The correct answer is

Note: We can also write these numbers in ascending order as

**Descending Order**

In descending order, numbers are arranged from bigger to smaller.

** **

**For example **

are in descending order.

**Example:**

Arrange the following numbers in descending order:

The correct answer is

Note: We can also write these numbers in descending order as
