To do:

We have to find the greater among the two in each case.

Solution:

(a) $0.4=\frac{4}{10}$ and $0.3=\frac{3}{10}$

4 is greater than 3.

This implies,

$\frac{4}{10}$ is greater than $\frac{3}{10}$.  

Therefore, 0.4 is greater than 0.3.

(b) $0.07=\frac{7}{100}$ and $0.02=\frac{2}{100}$

7 is greater than 2.

This implies,

$\frac{7}{100}$ is greater than $\frac{2}{100}$.  

Therefore, 0.07 is greater than 0.02.

(c) $3=\frac{30}{10}$ and $0.8=\frac{8}{10}$

30 is greater than 8.

This implies,

$\frac{30}{10}$ is greater than $\frac{8}{10}$.  

Therefore, 3 is greater than 0.8.

(d) $0.5=\frac{50}{100}$ and $0.05=\frac{5}{100}$

50 is greater than 5.

This implies,

$\frac{50}{100}$ is greater than $\frac{5}{100}$.  

Therefore, 0.5 is greater than 0.05.

(e) $1.23=\frac{123}{100}$ and $1.2=\frac{120}{100}$

123 is greater than 120.

This implies,

$\frac{123}{100}$ is greater than $\frac{120}{100}$.  

Therefore, 1.23 is greater than 1.2.

(f) 0.099 or 0.19

$0.099=\frac{99}{1000}$ and $0.19=\frac{190}{1000}$

190 is greater than 99.

This implies,

$\frac{190}{1000}$ is greater than $\frac{99}{1000}$.  

Therefore, 0.19 is greater than 0.099

(g) $1.5=\frac{150}{100}$ and $1.50=\frac{150}{100}$  

Therefore, 1.5 is equal to 1.50.

(h) $1.431=\frac{1431}{1000}$ and $1.490=\frac{1490}{1000}$

1490 is greater than 1431.

This implies,

$\frac{1490}{1000}$ is greater than $\frac{1431}{1000}$.  

Therefore, 1.490 is greater than 1.431.

(i) $3.3=\frac{3300}{1000}$ and $3.300=\frac{3300}{1000}$

Therefore, 3.3 is equal to 3.300.

(j) $5.64=\frac{5640}{1000}$ and $5.603=\frac{5603}{1000}$

5640 is greater than 5603.

This implies,

$\frac{5640}{1000}$ is greater than $\frac{5603}{1000}$.  

Therefore, 5.64 is greater than 5.603.
