If both numbers have n digits (n>=3) then you might have to compare n pairs of digits, if the first (n-1) digits of each are the same.

I think the implication here is that the numbers are between 100 and 999, so if the first two digits of each are the same, all 3 digits will have to be compared.

This just shows that problems must be carefully stated, even for 3rd-graders!
