.600

.675

Which one is greater? - Aug 16th 2007, 05:44 AMtopsquark
Try this:

When you subtract a smaller number from a larger you get a positive number. If you subtract a larger number from a smaller number, you get a negative number.

So as ThePerfectHacker suggested:

0.675 - 0.600 = 0.075

which is positive.

Thus

0.675 > 0.600
