DECIMAL INEQUALITIES #2

Directions:  Use the correct inequality symbol (> , <, or =) to solve the inequalities below.  Remember, the “ > “ symbol means that the number on the left is “greater than” the number on the right.  The “ < “ symbol means that the number on the left is “less than” the number on the right.  When comparing decimals, you should make sure that each number has the same amount of decimal places.  This can be done  by using zero as a placeholder.  Just add zeroes to the end of a number to balance out the decimal places.
