### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you have to arrange numbers in order, smallest first.

Example

Put theses numbers in order, smallest first.

9.3    1.6    5.0    1.2    5.7

First, we look for numbers with the smallest units digits.

Here we have two, 1.6 and 1.2 so we must compare the tenths digits to see that 1.2 is less than 1.6.

The next numbers to look at are 5.0 and 5.7.  We see that 5.0 is less than 5.7.

Finally, 9.3 is largest.

So the final order is 1.2 , 1.6 , 5.0 , 5.7 , 9.3

Put these numbers in order, smallest first.
