Answer:

#-2.4, -1.77, -1.35#

Explanation:

#-12/5 = -2 2/5 or -2.4#
#-1 7/9 = -1.77...#
#-1.35#
The smaller a negative number the greater it actually is.
Positive 1.35 is the smallest out of the three, if they were all positive. Therefore, it would be the largest as a negative. Because it is closest to #0.#
So #-1.35# would be last since it is the greatest.
Then it would #-1.77# as the second greatest because it is smaller than #-1.35# but larger than #-2.4.# Therefore, #-2.4# would be the smallest so that would be first, if you were ordering it from least to greatest.

#= -2.4, -1.77, -1.35#
