### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you have to put numbers in decreasing/descending order.

Example

Put the numbers in order, largest first.

Firstly, 91222 is the biggest because it has the largest digit in the ten thousands place.

Next we have 56299.

14726 is the smallest because it has the smallest digit in the ten thousands place.

Remember that, for example, 52345 is larger than 52167 (look at the hundreds place because that is the first number that is different).
