Integers of 6 digits are normally greater than integers of 5 digits

Any 5-digit number is greater than a 4-digit one.

The significant digits in a number can be arbitrarily small or large in number, according to the method of creating them.Numbers that can have an infinite number of possible significant digits are called transcendental numbers.

Because the next greater even number is 100. That, and any subsequent even number, consists of three or more digits.

If x - y > 0, then x is greater than y.The greater positive number is the one further from zero.Which number is greater can be worked out on a digit by digit basis:To compare numbers starting with the highest place value column compare the digits, moving right a place value column until either all digits have been considered or one digit is higher than the other - the number with the higher digit is the greater number. (If a place value column is empty, its digit value is 0).

Because in our system of numbers 100,000 is greater than 99,999.

§ In comparing two whole numbers, the one with the most digits is always the greater number. § In decimals the number with the greatest number of digits is not always the greatest.

which is greater, whole number with 5 digits or the whole number with 6 digits?

The greatest whole number with 5 digits is 99,999. The next greater whole number is 100,000, which is the least whole number having 6 digits.

All numbers are made with digits and there is no limit on how big they can be. So there is no greatest number.

The least whole number with 6 digits is greater because it has more digits than 5 digits.

Integers of 6 digits are normally greater than integers of 5 digits

99999 and 100000

Any 5-digit number is greater than a 4-digit one.

The significant digits in a number can be arbitrarily small or large in number, according to the method of creating them.Numbers that can have an infinite number of possible significant digits are called transcendental numbers.

Assuming that 000001 isn't considered as the smallest number with 6 digits on the basis that it would just be written as 1 instead: greatest whole number with 5 digits: 99,999 smallest whole number with 6 digits: 100,000 So hence the 6 digit number is the greatest. If negative numbers were involved though, then the 5 digit number would be the largest by definition. As it would still be 99,999 whereas the smallest 6 digit number would be -999,999

The greatest possible number is 888... (repeating).
