EDDIE SAYS
Compare the numbers in the tenths and hundredths places to put the numbers in the correct order. 11.058 is the smallest because there is a 0 in the tenths place. The next number is 11.375 because there is a 3 in the tenths place and a 7 in the hundredths place. 11.39 follows because there is a 9 in the hundredths place. 11.472 and 11.847 are the largest numbers.
