Use less than, equal to, or greater than to complete the following: seven meters is blank to 461 millimeters.

It is true that one meter is equal to 1000 millimeters. So to compare these numbers, let’s go ahead and change the seven meters to be in millimeters. So if there are 1000 millimeters in one meter, how many would be in seven? Well, we simply multiply by seven to the 1000. So we found that seven meters is equal to 7000 millimeters.

So let’s go ahead and replace seven meters with 7000 millimeters. So 7000 millimeters is blank to 461 millimeters. Since they’re both in millimeters, we just need to compare the numbers. And 7000 is larger than 461. So we need to use the greater than symbol.

So the greater than sign will be our final answer.
