To compare a decimal and a mixed number,

first convert, or change, one of the numbers so that we have either two decimals or two mixed numbers (or two fractions). Then, compare as usual.

For example: Let’s compare 4
1 5
and 4.13.

First, let's write the mixed number as a decimal.

In order to do so, we first write the fractional part of the mixed number,
1 5
, as a decimal.

Write
1 5
as an equivalent fraction with 10 as the denominator.

 1 5
=
 1 × 2 5 × 2
=
 2 10

Now, write
2 10
as a decimal.

 2 10
0.2

So, 4
 1 5
4.2 .

Now, compare 4.2 and 4.13.

As the tenth digit of 4.2 is greater than the tenth digit of 4.13,

4.2 > 4.13

So, 4
 1 5
>  4.13 .
