How do you order the rational numbers from least to greatest: 0.11, -1/9, -0.5, 1/10?
Numbers from least to greatest are
The easiest way to order rational numbers is to write them so that they are up to same places of decimal.
It is apparent that least number is one with negative sign but highest absolute (or numerical) value and among these it is
Hence, numbers from least to greatest are
Same thing as Shwetank but different approach using fractions
Note that the word 'least' is like saying 'less than'
There is a big difference between less than and smaller.
Now think of the position on the number line
So we have in order from left to right on the number line:
