Quandaries and Queries


Dear, could you please tell me what is the greatest decimal fraction
formed of the digits 0, 1 , 8?

Is it 0.810 or 0.801, please give me the reason of the answer
in details and the references if it possible.

Thank you very much for your help.



Hi Ahmed,

0.810 is larger than 0.801 since

0.810 = 8/101/100


0.801 = 8/101/1000
