Given numbers are 1.3 and 1.3%.

These numbers written as 13/10 and 13/1000.

Convert the fractions both have equal denominator.

Least common multiple of 10,1000 is 1000.

First fraction 13/10

Multiple 100 to the numarator and denominator.

 it would be 1300/1000.

1300/1000 is greater than 13/1000.

So 1.3% is greater.
