# Is .625 percent of a percent more than .005 percent?

Answer: Yes, .625% of a % is greater than .005 %

Solution:

.625% of a percent = .625% * 1% = .625 / 100 * (1 / 100) = 0.00625 * .01 = 0.0000625

.005% = .005/100 = .00005

0.0000625 > 0.00005

The easy way to determine which converted number is larger is to align them as follows & look to see which number is greater:

0.0000625

0.00005

As you can see above, 6 is greater than 5, which means the upper number is greater than the lower number.
