## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

Determine whether the statement is true or false. $\frac{9}{10}$ $\leq$ $\frac{8}{9}$ Is $\frac{9}{10}$ less than ($\lt$) or equal to (=) $\frac{8}{9}$? We know that $\frac{9}{10}$ is to the right of $\frac{8}{9}$ on the numberline, therefore $\frac{9}{10}$ is greater than ($\gt$) or equal to (=) $\frac{8}{9}$: $\frac{9}{10}$$\geq$$\frac{8}{9}$ Result: False
