675 / 9 = 75 6.75 / 9 = 0.75 It is the same calculation, but it is 100 times smaller.

Line them up so that the decimal points are in the same column. Then check each set of digits from left to right: If the digits are different, then the number with the smaller digit is smaller. Otherwise look at the next digit.

Because multiplying or dividing them by the same NON-ZERO number does not alter their ratio.

Because both ends have had the same thing done to them.

The place value of each digit is one tenth of the place value of the digit to its right. So moving the decimal point to the left is the same as changing the place value of each digit to a tenth - which is what division by 10 entails. For integral powers of 10 it is simply a repetition of this process.

0.0930.903 = nine hundred and three thousandths0.093 = ninety three thousandthsIf the denominators are the same , compare the numerators: ninety three is smaller than nine hundred and three.Alternatively:Follow the recipe:Start with the digit after the decimal point.The smaller number has the smaller digit (if one number has no digit, the digit is zero);Otherwise they are the same, so move right one digit;If all digits have not been considered, repeat from step 2;Otherwise the numbers are the same.0.903 and 0.0930 is smaller than 9, so 0.093 is smaller than 0.903.

No. Since the first digit (the "2" after the decimal point) is the same, you need to compare the second digit. You can fill out zeros after "0.2", writing it as "0.200". If the second digit is also the same, you can compare the third digit.

No, taking ½ of a number is the same as dividing it by 2. Dividing a number by ½ is the same as multiplying it by 2.

5 x 0.2 = 25 Or to put it a different way 25 / 0.2 = 5 Dividing something by a number greater than 1 gives you a smaller number Dividing something by 1 gives the same number Dividing something a number smaller than 1 gives you a larger number

Look at the whole parts. Since in this case they are the same, you continue looking at the FIRST digit after the decimal point. In this case, the number with the largest digit in this position is also the larger number.(And if the first digit is the same, you continue comparing the second digit after the decimal point; if that one is the same, you continue comparing the third digit, etc.)

It is not possible to say without knowing what the numbers are. The digits could become smaller, larger or remain the same. 52 - (-11) = 63 (both larger) 52 - (-10) = 62 (tens larger, units same) 52 - (-9) = 61 (tens larger, units smaller) 52 - (-1) = 53 (tens same, units larger) 52 - 0 = 52 (both same) 52 - 1 = 51 (tens same, units smaller) 52 - 9 = 43 (tens smaller, units larger) 52 - 10 = 42 (tens smaller, units same) 52 - 11 = 41 (both smaller).
