Compare the following numbers:

(i) 2.7 × 10^{12}; 1.5 × 10^{8}

(ii) 4 × 10^{14}; 3 × 10^{17}

(i) We have,

2.7 × 10^{12} and 1.5 × 10^{8}

So, in order to find the greater quantity among the two we will follow following steps:

Since,

2.7 is greater than 1.5 and 10^{12} is also greater than 10^{8}

Hence,

2.7 × 10^{12} > 1.5 × 10^{8}

(ii) We have,

4 × 10^{14} and 3 × 10^{17}

So, in order to find the greater quantity among the two we will follow following steps:

Since,

4 is greater than 3 but 10^{17} is greater than 10^{14}

Hence,

3 × 10^{17} > 4 × 10^{14}
