Curriculum topic:   Number: Number and Place Value

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Negative Numbers

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we must put integers in order, smallest first. This is called ascending order.

Example

Arrange the following integers in ascending order, putting the smallest first.

 48 56 14 -35 -2

Look at the negative numbers first.

The smallest negative number is -35, then -2.

Then look at the positive numbers.

The smallest positive number is 14. Then comes 48 and finally the largest number is 56.

The numbers in ascending order are:

 -35 -2 14 48 56

Arrange the following integers in ascending order, so that the 1st one is the smallest integer and the 5th is the largest.

 -45 -9 27 9 -27
