**Q.2. Make five more examples and find the greater number from them.**

**Ans:**

**(a) ****32.55 or 32.5**

In this case, whole parts for both the numbers are same. The tenth part are also equal, but the hundredth part of 32.55 is greater than that of 32.5

Therefore, 32.55 > 32.5

**(b) 1.82 or 1.84**

In this case, whole parts for both the numbers are same. The tenth part are also equal, but the hundredth part of 1.84 is greater than that of 1.82

Therefore, 1.84 > 1.82

**(c) 6.05 or 6.50**

In this case, the two numbers have same parts but the tenth part of 6.50 is greater than that of 6.05

Therefore, 6.50 > 6.05

**(d) 2.0 or 0.9**

The whole part of 2.0 is greater than that of 0.9

Therefore, 2.0 > 0.9

**(e) 1.08 or 1.089**

In this case, the two numbers have same parts upto hundredth. But the thousandths part of 1.089 is greater than that of 1.08.

Therefore,1.089 > 1.08
