In this worksheet, we must put integers in order, smallest first. This is called **ascending** order.

**Example**

Arrange the following integers in ascending order, putting the smallest first.

48 | 56 | 14 | -35 | -2 |

**Answer**

Look at the negative numbers first.

The smallest negative number is **-35**, then **-2**.

Then look at the positive numbers.

The smallest positive number is **14**. Then comes **48** and finally the largest number is **56**.

The numbers in ascending order are:

-35 | -2 | 14 | 48 | 56 |
