3 of 16
Ordering Decimals
0.01, 0.11, 1.10, 1.101 (ascending order)
4 of 16
Ordering Large Numbers
5634, 5364, 3465, 3456 (ascending order)
5 of 16
Ordering Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
1/5, 21%, 0.205, 1/4 ---> Convert all of these numbers to the same format (i.e. decimals)
6 of 16
> > >
1/5 = 0.2 & 1/4 = 0.25 , 21%÷100=0.21
7 of 16
> > >
0.2, 0.21, 0.205, 0.25
8 of 16
> > >
1/5, 0.205, 21%, 1/4 (ascending order)
9 of 16
Ordering Negative Numbers
The bigger the number after the - sign, the smaller the value of the negative number.
10 of 16
> > >
3.2, 2.3, −2.3, −3.2 (descending number)
11 of 16
Ordering Algebraic Terms
given that x is a positive integer greater than 1 ---> x^2, 1/x, x, x+1
12 of 16
> > >
Substitute a value in for x that is greater than 1 (i.e. x=2)
13 of 16
> > >
x^2 = 2^2 = 4, 1/x = 1/2, x = 2, x+1 = 2+1 = 3
14 of 16
> > >
4, 1/2, 2, 3
15 of 16
> > >
1/x, x, x+1, x^2 (ascending order)
