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.

How many perfect numbers are there?

There is no way to determine the amount of perfect numbers there are. The number could be infinite, but this has yet to be proven. It has also yet to be proven if there are any odd perfect numbers.

How many two-digit counting numbers are greater than 70 or a multiple of ten?

- There are an infinite number of "counting numbers" that are greater than 70. - There are also an infinite number of "counting number" that are multiples of 10. So.... since you used an "OR" statement, this mean how many number are true for both statements above. That would be: AN INFINITE NUMBER of counting numbers. In fact, if you had said "AND", it still would be an infinite number: 80, 90, 100, ... and so on FOREVER. * * * * * The above answer has interpreted the questions as "two-digit counting numbers greater than 70" OR "a multiple of ten". Apart from the fact that there are not an infinite number of two-digit counting numbers greater than 70, the answer would be correct. But the answer could be interpreted as "two digit counting numbers" that are "greater than 70" OR "a multiple of ten". In that case, the first set is {71, 72, ... 99} and the second is {10, 20, 30, ... 90} with an intersection set consisting of {80 and 90} So there are 29 + 9 - 2 = 36 such number.


Which number is greater 4.04 or 4.040?

This question has no clear answer: Based on the rules of rounding, the actual value of a number rounded to 4.04 could be any value from 4.04500000000... to 4.035000......., while a number rounded to 4.040 could have an actual value between 4.040500000000... to 4.0395000000.... These ranges overlap, so that either of the given numbers can be greater than the other.
