Not always, if the smaller number is 0 or a negative number. Then their sum will be equal or less than the greater number.

How can you use a number line to determine which of two numbers is greater?

The numbers to the right are always greater.


How do you decide which of two numbers is greater when one number is positive and one number is negative?

The positive number is always greater.


Is 23.67 cm greater than 237 cm?

Since the units are the same, look at the numbers. The larger numbers is the larger measurement. If you have trouble with that, the number with more digits (before the decimal point) is the larger number.


Is the GCF of a pair of numbers even greater than both numbers?

No, it cannot be larger than the smallest number.


Is the product of tow numbers is greater than either number?

Not always.


What are two mathods of comparing numbers?

One option for comparing two numbers is to subtract the first number from the second number. If the result is less than zero, the first number is larger. If the result is greater than zero, the second number is larger. If the result is zero, the numbers are equal. Another option (for positive numbers) would be to divide the first number by the second number. If the result is greater than one, the first number is larger. If the result is less than one, the second number is larger. If the result is one, the numbers are equal. This rule flips if you are comparing negative numbers.


How you could use a number line to determine which of two numbers is greater?

On a number line, the numbers start with zero and get larger as they move to the right, They are negative and get smaller as they move to the left from the zero. To find which number is greater, you can find the places of two numbers on the line and the one on the right is greater.


Why is the GCD of two or more positive integers never greater than the least of the numbers?

If the divisor was larger than one of the numbers, it couldn't be a divisor. There is no factor of a number that is larger than the number.


Is the product of two mixed number always greater than 1?

The product of two mixed numbers is always greater than one (assuming that both of the mixed numbers themselves are greater than one.)


Is 6 10th larger that 5 10th?

As the denominators (bottom numbers) are the same, the numerators (top numbers) can be compared and the larger number is the larger fraction. 6 is greater than 5 thus 6/10 is greater than 5/10.


The sum of two numbers is greater than either number?

The sum of two numbers will almost always be greater than either number. The only exception would be when dealing with two negative numbers.


What number is not greater than 64?

I don't know how to "grate" a number ... numbers are not cheese. An infinite number of numbers are "greater" (larger) than 64. Likewise, an infinite number of numbers are not "greater" (in other words, less than) 64, starting with 63, 62, 61, ... Actually, there are an infinite numbers that are less than 64, but greater than 63, unless you specify "whole numbers".


What is an example of a gcf pair of numbers ever greater than both numbers?

There is none. The GCF is never larger than both numbers. The GCF is never larger than the smaller number.


Which number is greater 0.24 or 0.18?

The number 0.24 is larger than the number 0.18. The difference between the two numbers is 0.06.


Which is greater -0.5 or -0.33?

Why is the Least common multiple of 2 numbers always greater than the greatest common factor?

Well, not always. The GCF and LCM of 10 and 10 is 10. But apart from that special circumstance, the statement is true. Apart from a number itself, all of its factors are smaller than it. Apart from a number itself, all of its multiples are larger than it. You can't have a GCF that is greater than the smaller number, and you can't have an LCM that is less than the larger one which means that the LCM of two numbers will never be less than the GCF. Factors go into numbers, numbers go into multiples.

When two numbers are added together the answer is always a larger number?

Only true if both of the numbers are of the same polarity.


Is 0.009 greater than 0.04?

No, 0.04 is the larger number because it has less numbers after the decimal place.


What is the end of number?

If you mean "the last number", there is no such thing; you can always add one more. Even infinite numbers - numbers that describe the magnitude of infinite sets - don't have a "last number"; you can always find a larger infinite number. Specifically, if you have a certain infinite number, 2 to the power of that infinite number will give you a larger infinity.


Does division always mean smaller Why?

No. For example, 5 divided by 0.5 is equal to 10. In general, assuming you work with positive numbers only, if you divide by a number GREATER than one, the result will be less than the original number; if you divide by a number LESS than one, the result will be larger than the original number.


What is greater .75 or .375?

0.75 is larger. To determine which decimals are larger, always look at the first number after the decimal point. Whichever digit is larger is the larger number. If they're the same, look to the second digit to see which is bigger, and so on. In this case, because 7 is greater than 3, 0.75 is larger than 0.375.


What is greater 4.1 or 4.19?

To figure out which number is larger first you should make both numbers have the exact same amount of decimal places. You can always add 0's because they will not add any value to your number. For these two numbers you should first add a 0 onto 4.1. Your new numbers would be 4.10 and 4.19. Now you can look at the number to the right of the decimal place. 19 is greater than 10, so 4.19 is greater than 4.1.


Which is more -5 or -1?

-4


How do you compare whole numbers through the millions?

A positive number is greater than a negative number. If both numbers are positive, the longer number - the one with more digits - is larger. If both have the same number of digits, compare the digits from the left, one at a time until you find one that is different. The one with the larger digit in this last comparison is the larger number.
