Answer:

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#

#9/16=0.5625#

#6.1=6.0000# and

#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}#
