7) 5.2 > -8.3

9) -4.9 > -4.3

10) 1.09 < -1.90

12) -10.2 < -10.23

are these correct?

• algebra compare rational numbers -

#2 is 3/4 > 3/8

• algebra compare rational numbers -

so all but #2 is wrong i see what i did now on # 2 and agree should be <
as:
-3/4 becomes -0.75
-3/8 becomes -0.375

so -0.75 < -0.375

right?

im really confused because i posted this question earlier and someone else just replied and said all my answers are wrong. so now im confused if im right or wrong?

• algebra compare rational numbers -

opps sorry i did it again
it should be - 3/4 > -3/8

• algebra compare rational numbers -

so i do have them all wrong?

• algebra compare rational numbers -

opps sorry i did it again
it should be - 3/4 > -3/8

NO!

-3/4 = -.75
-3/8 = -.375

Now which is farthest to the right, that is the larger, so
-.375 > -.75 or -3/8 > -3/4

My way, the way I showed you in the other post

3/4 ....... 3/8
3/4 > 3/8
-3/4 < - 3/8

I havent looked at all of them yet, give me a minute and I will, but you definitely don't have them all wrong.

• algebra compare rational numbers -

- 3/4 < - 3/8 you said wrong

but reiny corrected me said
it is: - 3/4 < - 3/8
