# Answer to A Practical Example

Lunga has taken longer, because his first decimal place (2) is bigger than the 1 that applies to Johannes.

Lunga has taken 37$$\frac{2}{10}$$ minutes and Johannes has taken 37$$\frac{1}{10}$$ $$\frac{5}{100}$$ + $$\frac{9}{1000}$$, and Johannes’ time is less than Lunga’s.

The 5 and 9 count for less because they are smaller fractions (2nd and 3rd decimal).
