    • A.

      0.05, 0.005, 0.105

      0.005, 0.05, 0.105

    Correct Answer
    C. 0.005, 0.05, 0.105
    Explanation
    The decimals in the given set are 0.05, 0.105, and 0.005. To order them from least to greatest, we start with the smallest decimal, which is 0.005. Next, we have 0.05, which is greater than 0.005 but smaller than 0.105. Finally, we have 0.105, which is the largest decimal in the set. Therefore, the correct order from least to greatest is 0.005, 0.05, 0.105.

      5.003, 5.03, 5

    • C.

      5.03, 5.003, 5

    Correct Answer
    A. 5, 5.003, 5.03
    Explanation
    The given decimals are 5, 5.003, and 5.03. When ordering decimals from least to greatest, we start by comparing the whole numbers. In this case, all the decimals have the same whole number part, which is 5. Therefore, we move on to the decimal part. The decimal 5.003 is the smallest because it has the least number of decimal places. Next is 5.03, which has a larger decimal part. Finally, the decimal 5 has no decimal part, so it is the largest. Therefore, the correct order is 5, 5.003, 5.03.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which decimal is greater 0.433 or 0.43?

    • A.

      0.433

    • B.

      0.43

    Correct Answer
    A. 0.433
    Explanation
    The decimal 0.433 is greater than 0.43 because the digit in the hundredths place is larger in 0.433 (3) compared to 0.43 (0).

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which is the least 0.0333 or 0.003?

      0.0333

    • B.

      0.003

    Correct Answer
    B. 0.003
    Explanation
    The given question asks for the least value between 0.0333 and 0.003. Comparing the two values, we can see that 0.003 is smaller than 0.0333. Therefore, 0.003 is the least value among the two options provided.

    Which is the greatest 1.288 or 1.228?

    • A.

      1.288

    • B.

      1.228

    Correct Answer
    A. 1.288
    Explanation
    The number 1.288 is greater than 1.228 because the digit 8 in 1.288 is greater than the digit 2 in 1.228. When comparing numbers, the digit in the leftmost place value is the most significant, and in this case, 8 is greater than 2. Therefore, 1.288 is the greater number.
