This online comparing decimals calculator allows you to compare a couple of decimal values and tells which decimal value is greater than the other.

Below are the steps to compare two decimal numbers:

- Enter the first number.
- Enter the second number.
- Hit the “
**Calculate**” button to compare the two decimal numbers.

Particular numerals containing both whole numbers and decimal parts are known as the decimal numbers.

**For example;**

- In the decimal numeral
**23.568, 23**is the whole number part and**.568**is the decimal numeral part.

Remember that the decimal number portion that is followed by the decimal point is always less than one. Apart from this, you can also turn decimals to fractions and then compare them accordingly.

**Example # 01:**

Let us suppose we have a couple of decimal numerals as below:

**23.548 & 41.848**

Which decimal is bigger among the two? Let us tell you! Now here, we will compare both of these decimals to analyse which one is greater or smaller from one another!

- As the first numbers of both numerals are
**23**and**41**. The number**41**is already greater than**23**. This is why we can say that the decimal number with**41**is greater than the one with**23**.

**Example # 02:**

Which decimal greater than less than here?

**56.187 & 56.157**

As digits before decimal notation are alike, we will compare digits after decimal point (one-by-one)

- The first digits after decimal for both the numbers are
**1**, so we will move to the next ones - The next digits are
**8**and**5**, respectively. As we see that**8>5**, so the number**56.187**is greater than the number**56.157**
