Don't confuse .1 and .2 with -1 and -2. .1 and.2 are just like 1 and 2 but when you go into -1 and -2, that's when 2 is smaller. Or when you say 1/1 or 1/2. In that case, 1/2 is smaller.

But .2 is bigger than .1

1/10 x 10 = 1, 2/10 x 10 = 2; 2 is larger than 1, therefore, 2/10 is larger than 1/10

Multiply both by 10 or put a $ sign in front of each, which one would you pick as the bigger?
