    the more zeros right after the decimal point, the smaller the number is. so 0.000001 is smaller than 0.001 for instance

    if you have two numbers that are identical except for the last digit, then the one with the biggest last digit is bigger, so 0.221 is smaller than 0.223

    now can you do the problem?
