Which is true? A 0.0093 > 0.01 B 0.2673 < 0.2562 C 0.5330 > 0.533 D 0.6409 < 0.641

Well let's take a look. We all know when finding which is greater than/lesser than. We have to start in the front and make our way back

Let's have a look at D shall we?

D 0.6409 < 0.641 So looking at the front of the decimal they are both zeros, so we move onto the next digit. In the tenths place they are both 6 so we move on. Looking at the next digit they are both fours so we move on. Now here we have a 0 and a 1. 1 is greater than 0 so yes D is true. Now that may not be the answer so let's see the others

0.5330 > 0.533 Now using the same process they're both 5 and 5 moving on. 3&3 moving on 3&3 moving on. Now see 0 is nothing. So they are equal, this is not true

B 0.2673 < 0.2562 Now 2&2 moving on, 6&5 six is greater than 5 this is false.

0.0093 > 0.01 0&0, moving on. 0&1 1 is greater so there

Now since D & A are the same I think we do the 5 or more raise the scoor thinf

All in all I think A is the answer

A cannot be correct. A 0.0093 > 0.01 Line up the decimal places to compare 0.0093 0.01 Notice how 0.01 has a 1 in the second decimal place and 0.0093 has a 0 in the second decimal place. Therefore, 0.01 is greater than 0.0093 so the original statement is false. Your reasoning for choice D being true is correct.

OH oh I'm sorry I must have looked at it backwards
