To compare two numbers, like 43 and 37, model each number on a place value chart. To find which number is greater, start by comparing the greatest place value (the tens place). The number 43 has more tens than the number 37, so 43 is greater than 37. The comparison can be written with an inequality symbol as 43 > 37. When numbers have the same digit in the greatest place value, compare the next greatest place value.
