Inner and outer planets have some things that are in common but there mostly way different. For instants they both orbit the sun. On the other hand the outer planets are made mostly by gas, that's why they are called the gas giants. The inner planets are mostly made by rock and dust. The inner planets are called Terrestrial planets and the outer planets are called Jovian planets. The inner planets are closer to the sun, have more density, they have less moons, there about the size of Earth, and they rotate slowly. The outer planets (Jovian Planets) are farther from the sun, they have less density, they have more moons, they are large, about the size of Jupiter, they rotate rapidly, and they have more mass.

These planets are alike because they both orbit the sun.
