37 over 10 is more.

37 over 10 = 3,7

37 over 100 = 0.37

Let's investigate; 0.37. The last digit is in the hundredth place, making it 37 over 100 (37/100) and since 37/10 is an improper fraction, we must turn it into a mixed number. That gives you

3 and 7/10. And thinking like American money, decimals would be like change. Whole numbers being dollars. of course \$3.70 is more than 37 cent, so the answer is:

0.37< 37/10 (37/10 is more)

37 over 10 is 3.7.

0.37 is 37 over 100.

so... 37 over 10 is more than 0.37. They are not equal to each other.

Let's convert both of them to fractions.

0.37 is equal to 37/100.

So now we're comparing 37/100 with 37/10

Give them a common denominator, which would be the LCD of 100 and 10. In this case, the LCD is 100, and 37/10 = 370/100.

Comparing 37/100 and 370/100 clearly shows the greater number to be 370/100. Therefore, 37/10 is the greater number, and they are NOT equal to each other.

Think about what 37 over 10 means. This is an improper fraction because 37 is obviously bigger than 10. Any improper fraction is greater than 1 and 0.37 is smaller than 1. Thus, 0.37 is much smaller than 37/10.

0.37 is equal to 37 over 100, not 37 over 10

37 over 10 = 3.7

10x more than 0.37

37 over 100 is equal to 0.37

37 over 10 is:

37/10=3.7

Therefore, 3.7>0.37

0.37 = 37/100 < 1

37/10 = 3.7 >1

so 37/10 is larger, in fact 10 times larger.
