    well, to compare decimals, first look at the part before the decimal we know that 22.8 is the smallest because 22 is smaller than 23 so, we're left with 23.72 and 23.697 to compare these two, let's look at the part after the decimal point 23.72 is bigger than 23.697 because 72 is bigger than 697 does this make sense?

    22.8 is smaller than 23.697 because 22 is smaller than 23 you look at the part before the decimal point FIRST, then after you've sorted those in order, then you can look at the part AFTER the decimal point does that make a little more sense?
