Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

> means greater than (the number on the left of this sign must be more than the number on the right).

< means less than (the number on the left of this sign must be less than the number on the right).

= means equals (the number on the left of this sign must have the same value as the number on the right).

Less bigger

It is easier to compare two (fractions with quite different denominators) by converting them both to decimals. Do this by dividing the top (numerator) by the bottom (denominator).

1 kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m)

1 metre (m) = 100 centimetres (cm)

1 centimetre (cm) = 10 millimetres (mm)

1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (g)

1 litre (l) = 1000 millilitres (ml)

1 hour = 60 minutes
