When solving problems which involve comparing lengths and heights, it is important in the first instance to be able to recognize which one is longest or tallest and which is shortest. This ability can then be extended to solving problems to do with recognizing longer, taller and shorter lengths within a set and being able to order them correctly in order of length or height.
