When we compare numbers, we are looking at the relationship between two or more numbers. We use comparison symbols to show how the numbers are related to each other. The comparison symbols are:

- Greater than: >
- Less than: <
- Greater than or equal to: ≥
- Less than or equal to: ≤
- Equal to: =

When comparing whole numbers, we use these symbols to indicate the relationship between the numbers. For example, if we have the numbers 5 and 8, we can say that 8 is greater than 5, or 5 is less than 8.

When comparing decimal numbers, we follow the same rules as for whole numbers. The only difference is that we also consider the place value of the digits after the decimal point. For example, 3.5 is less than 3.7 because the digit in the tenths place is smaller in 3.5 than in 3.7.

When comparing fractions, we can use a variety of methods. One way is to find a common denominator and then compare the numerators. Another way is to convert the fractions to decimals and then compare them as decimal numbers.
