#### Comparing and Ordering Decimals Song Lyrics:

I have two gold coins that are shiny and round.
One’s four hundred five thousandths of a pound;
the other weighs four hundred ten thousandths.
Which is the greater of my investments?

To order them, I looked left to right
and found the first place that was not alike.
One’s greater than zero, the greater piece I hold
is four hundred ten thousandths of a pound of gold.

Line up the decimal points vertically;
look left to right horizontally;
compare the greatest place that’s different;
the greater number will become apparent.

I found two pieces of silver digging in the ground.
One was one hundred two thousandths of a pound.
The other piece was ninety-nine thousandths.
Which one contained the greater contents?

To order them, I looked left to right
and found the first place that was not alike.
One’s bigger than zero, so of the two,
one hundred two thousandths was the greater value.

A number line can help make visible
the place value of any decimal.
Between zero and one, divide it into tenths.
In each tenth fits ten hundredths;
in each hundredth fits ten thousandths;
each place value to the right is ten times less.
