    Just start with the left-most digit of each number, and compare corresponding digits. The first time one is greater than the other, that number is the greater.

    You know that, say, 6 > 2

    So, if your two numbers are something like

    7836219
    7832...

    you can immediately see that the first is greater, no matter what follows from there on to the right.
