    0.05 is larger than 0.01 because 0.05 + 0.05 = 0.1 while 0.01 + 0.05 = 0.06. Concluding that 0.05 is greater than 0.01

    I am not trying to embarrass anyone here, but I have always found it funny that people have difficulty learning the decimal system when most of them have been using it for as long as they have been old enough to carry money. Here is an analogy using dollar and cent currency.

    This is one cent: $0.01

    This is five cents: $0.05

    Now, which is greater?

    0.01/0.05 = 1/5 < 1. Therefore 0.01 is less than 0.05.;

    Multiply both numbers by 100 (move the decimal point two places to the right).

    0.01 --> 1

    0.05 --> 5

    So is 1 larger than 5?
