Details for problem "Insert relational operator"

Quickname: 7760

Suitable for grades: Grade 6, Grade 7


Insert the correct relational symbol between two decimals.



A series of pairs of decimal fractions is presented. The task is to determine whether these numbers are equal or not, if not, which one is greater, and insert the correct relational operator "less than", "greater than", or "equal" in the blank space between the numbers.

The way the pairs of numbers, a and b, are chosen can be selected from different algorithms:

- n and m are natural numbers from 1 to 9, a is n+m/10, b is n+m/100, i.e. m will occur in the tenth position of the first number a and in the hundredth position of the second number b. Example: 4.5 and 4.05.

- a is a natural number in the range from 11 to 99, b is a/10, e.g. 45 and 4.5.

- a and b are numbers with three decimals, a is by 0.001 larger than b.

- a is a number with one decimal place, b is b+0.001,..,0.09, e.g. 4.1 and 4.103.

- a and b have the same digits, but the order is different, e.g. 4.21 and 40.12.

- a and b are equal, but b is shown with a trailing zero, e.g. 4.2 and 4.20.

For each type of problem, the number of occurrences can be chosen. The problems of different types may occur grouped or shuffled, this is selectable.

Numbers may be positive or negative, this is configurable.
