# Ordering Decimals

Given two decimal numbers, order as follows:

1. By the number that has a smaller whole number.

2. If they have the same whole part, order by the number that has the smaller decimal part.

### Representation of Decimal Numbers

Each decimal number has a place in the numerical straight line. To represent the** tenths, divide the unit into 10 parts. **

To represent the** hundredths, divide each tenth into 10 parts. **

To represent the** thousandths, divide every hundredth into 10 parts,** and this process continues for ten-thousandths, hundred-thousandths, ...

There are no two consecutive decimal numbers, because between two decimal numbers it is always possible to find other decimals.
