There are 2 apples and 1 soccer ball, so there are less ?
When comparing the number of objects in two groups, start by counting the number of objects in the first group. To do that, pair each object with the numbers in the standard order. The last number you say is the number of objects counted. Once that is done, count the number of objects in the second group. The group with the larger number of objects has more objects, and the group with the smaller number objects has less objects.For example, if there are 3 apples and 5 butterflies, there are more butterflies than there are apples.
