# How does 1.89 compared to 16/9 ?

There is no single answer to this question. It depends on what is meant by 'compare'.

The question is somewhat ambiguous as it does not tell us what is meant by 'compare'. However, I will provide a few examples.

- 1.89 and 16/9 are both rational numbers (1.89 may be written as 189/100) However, while 1.89 is defined in 2 decimals, 16/9 is what is called a recurring decimal (1.77777777.......). Here the 7 recurs to infinity. For practical purposes, it is truncated and rounded at the appropriate number of decimals.

- 1.89 is larger than 16/9 by approx 0.11222

[I hope this was the sort of thing you had in mind in the question. If not, send me a message defining what you meant by "compared to".]
