Worksheet Overview

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 

 

 

Answer

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
