What number is between eight tenths and nine tenths?
The period of a 5 digit number comes between the ones place and the tenths place. If there is no period, it is assumed to come to the right of the right-most digit. That would make it a whole number. For example, 1256.9 is one thousand, two hundred fifty six and nine tenths. 3.4582 is three and four thousand, five hundred, eighty two ten thousandths.
To get the nearest whole number you first write the number of units you have. In this case, that number is 67. The next step is to look at the fraction and ask if it's greater than or equal to a half, in which case you round down. Otherwise, you round up. In this case, we have nine tenths, which is greater than a half, so you round 67 up to 68. Thus, the nearest…
Yes, nine tenths is larger than six sevenths. The easiest way to figure it out is to convert the fractions into decimals and compare. To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number). Example: 9/10 is 9 divided by 10 which is .9; 6/7 is 6 divided by 7 which is .857; .9 is more than .857, so nine tenths is the larger number.
