Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet you have to put numbers in order, starting with the largest first and ending with the smallest at the end.

This is called descending order.



Put the numbers in descending order.

469 541 931 518



Look at the hundreds place first.

931 is the biggest because it has the largest hundreds digit.


Next we compare 541 and 518.  

They both have a 5 in the hundreds place, so we look at the tens place and see that 541 is larger than 518.


469 is the smallest because 469 has the smallest hundreds digit.


In descending order the numbers go:

1. 2. 3. 4.
931 541 518 469
