Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suggest writing all the numbers out in standard notation. It then becomes much clearer. For example, \(9 \times 10^{8} = 0.00000009\), which is less than \(5 \times 10^{6} = 0.000005\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not quite. Here's another way to look at it. Numbers with higher powers of 10 are larger than number with lower powers of 10. Therefore, any number with a power of 10 of 6 is larger than any number with a power of 10 of 7, or 8, or 9, etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And for number with the same power of 10, just look at the base number.
