We just looked at the number of digits and found the answer. The greatest number has the most thousands and the smallest is only in hundreds or in tens. Make five more problems of this kind and give them to your friends to solve. Now, how do we compare 4875 and 3542? This is also not very difficult. These two numbers have the same number of digits. They are both in thousands. But the digital the thousands place in 4875 is greater than that in 3542. Therefore, 4875 is greater than 3542. Next tell which is greater, 4875 or4542? Here too the numbers have the same number of digits. Further, the digits at the thousands place are the same in both. What do we do then? We move to the next digit, that is to the digit at the hundreds place. The digit at the hundreds place is greater in 4875 than in 4542. Therefore, 4875 is greater than 4542.
