It is clear that 50% is greater that 0.05% because 50 is greater that 0.05

==> You can also convert to ratios to check.

==> 50% = 50/100 = 1/2

==> 0.05% = 0.05/100 = 5/10^4

Then it is clear that 50% > 0.05%

use >,<,= to compare.

0.05% < 50%

because .05% is smaller than 50%

You would use > out of >,<,= to compare 50% and 0.05%. 

50% > 0.05% 

It is obvious that 50% is the biggest because if you take out the % sign, 50 is bigger than .05 which is less than 1.
