$0.89 > 0.884$

#### Explanation:

Write them with the same number of decimal places to make the comparison easier.

$0.89 \text{ } = 0.8 \textcolor{b l u e}{9} 0$
$0.884 \text{ } = 0.8 \textcolor{b l u e}{8} 4$

Now compare each decimal places:

First d.p.: tenths: they are equal
Second d.p.: hundredths $9 > 8$

Therefore the top number is bigger.

You can also compare the number of thousandths:

$\frac{890}{1000} > \frac{884}{1000}$ because $890 > 884$
