Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will learn how to put integers in decreasing order of size.

The further to the right we move from zero, the larger the numbers get, e.g. 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 etc.

The further to the left we move from zero, the smaller the numbers get, e.g. 0, -5, -10, -15, -20 etc.
but the digits get larger, as the number gets smaller.

 

For example:

Arrange the following integers in decreasing order, starting with the largest.

48,  56, 14, -35, 2, -15

 

Answer: 56, 48, 14, 2, -15, -35
