## INFORMATION

When comparing two positive decimals, we first consider the number of digits in the whole parts. The number with more digits in the whole part is greater. If the number of digits is the same, we compare the digits from the leftmost side. When encountering the same digit, we move to the rightmost digit. We stop at the first position where different digits are encountered. The decimal with the larger digit at that position is considered greater.
