### Which decimal is greater?

• A.

2.36

• B.

2.63

B. 2.63
Explanation
The decimal 2.63 is greater than 2.36 because the digit in the tenths place is larger in 2.63 (6) compared to 2.36 (3). When comparing decimals, you start from the left and compare each digit until you find a difference. In this case, the tenths place is the first place where the digits are different, and since 6 is greater than 3, 2.63 is the greater decimal.
