Comparing and ordering decimals is sort of like comparing regular numbers.

Lets say you and your friend want to compare the time it takes to run ten meters.
If this was both of your times,6.4 and 6.5, you would have to compare them a special way.

One way to compare them is to line up the decimals.Then,from left to right, find the first place that the digits are different.
Then compare the digits. Once you've done that you can order them greatest to least or vice-versa.

6.5
6.4
Witch one is greater?
