Find the smaller number:
To calculate: The smaller number among the numbers .
The numbers are:
Steps to compare the decimal numbers:
Step 1: Convert the decimal number into scientific notation.
Step 2: Compare the exponent of the base (power of 10), smaller the exponent smaller will be the number.
Step 3: In case, if the exponents are same, compare the part of the number between to . Smaller the number smaller will be number being compared.
Consider the numbers:
First non-zero digit is at place from the decimal. Therefore, the exponent of 10 will be .
First non-zero digit is at place from the decimal
