in circles we're going to go through choices just one

00:27

by one Well let's see Number line time Negative Five

00:30

elevenses close to a half But negative six sevenths is

00:35

closer to negative one So this means that negative five

00:38

eleven is larger or less negative than negative six seven

00:43

so well in cross out a and then similarly negative

00:47

point Oh oh three three three It's closer to zero

00:50

then his negative point Oh three three five So negative

00:54

point o three degrees larger than that So be it

00:58

Can't be the right answer either so it was over

01:01

quickly So get rid of b next up See One

01:04

point one two oh three Four is larger than both

01:07

one point one o two three four and one point

01:10

one two three four So oh all right b c

01:13

While this easier to see if we round off the

01:15

last three decimals and one point one two is greater

01:18

than both one point one in one point oh oneself

01:22

that goes into the discard pile are we've gotten rid

01:24

of a b and c here really quickly All right

01:26

how about d We've got two twenty thirds than three

01:29

eighteenth than for thirteenth While these look kind of correct

01:34

the value of a fraction becomes greater as the numerator

01:37

increases in the denominator decreases so well let's see Let's

01:42

think about this He's probably the right answer but let's

01:44

check e So let's see what we have here One

01:47

fifth is point two and let's see while they both

01:51

equal to tense So the first two numbers are greater

01:54

than the last one So it can't be e just

01:57

got to be de here and well you really didn't

01:59

have do a huge amount of denominator Getting all these

02:03

equal the same number would be well into the thousands

02:05

and take you a long time on an exam like

02:07

this Easier to just eliminate the wrong ones and then

02:10

close your eyes and checked deep because that's it That's 00:02:13.56 --> [endTime] the right answer Well done
