### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet we will put the temperatures in order.

Example

Put these temperatures in order (coldest number first).

-5°  -3°  2°  -4°  -1°

When we think of the number line -5 is the coldest temperature on the number line.

-5          -4          -3          -2          -1          0          1          2          3

-5 °C is the coldest temperature and 2 °C is the hottest temperature.

The correct order is:

-5°  -4°  -3°  -1°  2°
