(iv) 1.37 or 1.49 (v) 2.03 or 2.30 (vi) 0.8 or 0.88

(i) 0.5 or 0.05

Converting these decimal numbers into equivalent fractions,

It can be observed that both fractions have the same denominator.

As 50 > 5,

Therefore, 0.5 > 0.05

(ii) 0.7 or 0.5

Converting these decimal numbers into equivalent fractions,

It can be observed that both fractions have the same denominator.

As 7 > 5,

Therefore, 0.7 >0.5

(iii) 7 or 0.7
