Problem 3
Here is a true statement: \(\text8.7 < \text8.4\). Select all of the statements that are equivalent to \(\text8.7 < \text8.4\).
8.7 is further to the right on the number line than 8.4.
8.7 is further to the left on the number line than 8.4.
8.7 is less than 8.4.
8.7 is greater than 8.4.
8.4 is less than 8.7.
8.4 is greater than 8.7.
