3 is smaller.

2, 3, 5, 7.

The probability that the die tossed will land on a number that is smaller than 5 is 4/6 or 2/3. Smaller than 5 is 1 - 4 and 6 is the sample space.

ya i will solve this question by taking assumptions if we observe the question easily identified the larger number is greater than smaller number by 6 and one thing is the sum of two numbers is 3 times their difference from this information we clearly says sum is divided by 3 so if we take smaller number 1 larger number 7(add 6) (1+6)=3(5) and now smaller number 2 larger number 8 (2+8)=3(6) : : : take smaller number 6 larger number 12 this is the correct answer 6+12=3(6)

Take the 'reciprocal' of the given scale factor to go the other way. The 'reciprocal' of a number is 1/(the number). 3 ==> 1/3 5 ==> 1/5 1/7 ==> 7 2/3 ==> 3/2 etc.

Depends. If you are subtracting a bigger number from a smaller number, such as 3 - 5, you will get a negative result, -2. If you are subtracting a smaller number from a bigger number, such as 12 - 3 you will get a positive result, 9.

3 and 5 hundredths is bigger than 3 and 5 Thousandths. 3.050 > 3.005 .050 = 10 x .005 3.005 is the smaller number.

The probability that the die tossed will land on a number that is smaller than 5 is 4/6 or 2/3. Smaller than 5 is 1 - 4 and 6 is the sample space.

3 and 5 are prime numbers. This means they can't be separated into smaller factors. For comparison, 9 is not a prime number, since it CAN be separated into smaller factors (9 = 3 x 3).

No, subtraction is not a short cut for additon. In addition, you add numbers to another number to make it bigger. For example, adding 2 to 3 gives you 5. You can see that 5 is bigger than 2 and 3. However, for subtraction, you take away numbers to make a number smaller. If you take away 2 from 5, you get 3. As you can see, 3 is smaller than 5, which proves that subtraction makes a number smaller.
