The order from least to greatest is {9/16,31/50,65%,0.7,6.1}

#### Explanation:

Easiest way is to convert all numbers in decimal say up to $4$ or $5$ places of decimal.

Hence $0.7 = 0.7000$

65%=0.65=0.6500

$\frac{9}{16} = 0.5625$

$6.1 = 6.0000$ and

$\frac{31}{50} = 0.6200$

and it becomes easy to compare them now and the order from least to greatest is {9/16,31/50,65%,0.7,6.1}
