To compare numbers compare the largest place value column first, and then the next largest and so on until one number has a greater place value column digit than the other or all place value columns have be compared

Both 2.85 and 2.8 have a 2 in the ones column, so test the next column:

Both 2.85 and 2.8 have a 8 in the tenths column, so test the next column:

2.85 has a 5 in the hundredths column, but 2.8 has nothing, which can be read as zero, in the hundredths column; 5 is greater than 0 so 2.85 is greater than 2.8

2.85 is greater than 2.8
