# How to Compare Amounts of Money?

You can compare the amounts of money. In this guide, you will learn more about how to compare amounts of money.

**A step-by-step guide to comparing the amount of money**

Don’t forget that when you compare the money it is the same as when you compare numbers. And you utilize relation symbols such as \(<\) (less than), \(>\) (greater than), or \(=\) (equal).

It’s vital to remember what each of these bills and coins is worth so it’s possible to add up the entire amount of money inside each set.

To complete a money problem, you must figure out the whole amount of money for each of the sets and also do a comparison of the \(2\) totals.

**Comparing the amount of money-Example 1:**

Which picture shows more?

** Solution:** First, count the \($1\) bills, \(a=$1\) and \(b=$1\). Next, count the quarters by counting up by twenty-fives, \(a=25\) quarters, and \(b=50\) quarters. Next, count the dimes by counting up by tens, a \(= 40\) dimes, and \(b = 10\) dimes. Next, count the nickels by counting up by five, \(a=5\) nickels and \(b= 0\) nickels. Finally, count the pennies by counting up by ones, \(a=1\) penny and \(b=1\) penny. Picture a is \($1.71\). Picture \(b\) is \($1.61\). So, picture \(a\) shows more.
