Today we are practicing comparing numbers to 1,000 with Razzi! This video contains examples to help you further practice and grow confident in this topic.
Transcript Comparing Numbers to 1,000 — Let's Practice!
Razzi says get these items ready, because today we're going to practice comparing numbers to one thousand! It's time to begin! Let's compare two hundred eightyfour and two hundred eightyfour. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Compare the hundreds place first. Two and two are equal. Compare the tens place next. Eight and eight are equal. Compare the ones place last. Four and four are equal. Use the equal to symbol. Did you also get two hundred eightyfour is equal to two hundred eightyfour? Let's tackle the next problem! Compare four hundred fiftysix and seven hundred thirtyeight. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Compare the hundreds place. Four is smaller than seven. Stop comparing here since we found different numbers. Use the less than symbol. Did you also get four hundred fiftysix is less than seven hundred thirtyeight? Let's do one more! Compare three hundred fortysix and three hundred twentynine. Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! Compare the hundreds place. Three and three are equal. Compare the tens place. Four is greater than two. Stop comparing here. Use the greater than symbol. Did you also get three hundred fortysix is greater than three hundred twentynine? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

Can you compare the numbers?
HintsStart comparing in the hundreds place then move to the tens if the digits are the same. If the tens digits are the same, move to the ones. If the ones digits are also the same, use the = symbol.
Remember, the opening of the greater than and less than symbols always faces the larger number.
For example, 432 is greater than 379 so we would write 432 > 379.
Solution 217 < 342
 568 = 568
 874 > 863

Choose the correct number or symbol.
HintsStart comparing in the hundreds place, if the hundreds are the same, move onto comparing the tens place and then the ones place.
For example, if we were comparing 319 to 312 we can see that the hundreds are the same so we move to the tens. The tens are also the same so we move to the ones. 9 is greater than 2 so 319 > 312.
If we are looking for a number that is greater than 720 we would start by seeing if there is a number that has a hundred greater than 7. If not, we would see if there is a number that has a 7 in the hundreds but a number greater than 2 in the tens.
Solution 981 > 891
 723 = 723
 417 = 417
 525 > 471
 101 < 110

Compare the numbers.
HintsRemember, the opening of the greater than and less than symbols always faces the larger number.
Look at the hundreds place first to compare the numbers.
If the numbers in the hundreds place are the same, move to compare the digits in the tens place.
If the numbers in the tens place are the same, move to compare the digits in the ones place.
For example, 456 > 453 as even though the hundreds and tens places are the same, 6 > 3 therefore 456 > 453.
Solution 979 < 981
 654 > 652
 345 < 645
 867 = 867
 321 > 231

Choose the correct number or symbol.
HintsRemember, we compare the greatest place value first. If these are the same then we can look at the other digits.
If you are looking for a missing number, check the symbol. Are you looking for a number that is greater than, less than or equal to the number given?
Solution 988 > 898
 967 < 968
 563 = 563
 218 = 218
 352 > 350
 291 > 219

Which number goes in the box?
HintsWhich way is the symbol facing? Are you finding a number that is greater than 345 or less than 345?
The opening of the symbol is facing 345 meaning you are looking for a number that is less than 345.
Try each number and see if it works. Start comparing in the hundreds place, then move to the tens and then the ones if you need to.
Solution345 > 321
321 is the correct answer.
354 and 445 are both greater than 345 so wouldn't fit.

Can you solve the problems?
HintsFor questions 1 and 2, look at the direction of the symbol. Which side does the greater number need to go on.
Find the greater number by comparing the hundreds place, then the tens place, then the ones place.
For question 3, you need to find the number that when added to 420 makes 1,000. You could do this by subtracting. 1,000  420 = ?
Solution Tim was baking a cake. The recipe said he needed 425 g of flour but he put 437 g of flour in. Can you fill in the gaps with these numbers to show Tim if he needs more or less flour? 425 < 437.
 Rupi was building a model. She needed 318 wooden sticks. She has 303. Can you fill in the gaps with these numbers to show Rupi whether she has too many or not enough? 318 > 303
 Cal wanted to walk 1,000 steps. So far he has walked 420. Can you fill in the gap to show Cal how many more steps he needs to walk? 420 + 580 = 1,000
