Hi,

C is the least (0.015); Second part : 0.501 is bigger of the two.

hi Zeeshan 01

A. 0.105

B. 0.501

C. 0.015

D. 0.15

Check the largest digit first.

units: all have a zero so go on to the tenths digit 0.x

C has a zero. The others all have a bigger tenths digit so C is smallest.

Another example:

A 0.035

B 0.041

C 0.0356

D 0.0305

Check units:

All have a zero.

Check tenths (0.x):

All have a zero again.

Check hundredths (0,0x)

A has a 3, B has a 4, C has a 3, D has a 3. So reject B but keep looking at the thousandth digits (0.00x) for A, C and D.

A has a 5, C has a 5, D has a zero. So D is the smallest.
