00:00:01.120 --> 00:00:12.050
Order 4.944, 5.224, 5.74, and 5.455 from greatest to least.
00:00:12.670 --> 00:00:19.270
Greatest essentially means the largest number or the biggest number and the least number will be the smallest number.
00:00:19.680 --> 00:00:23.260
When ordering numbers, we need to begin all the way to the left.
00:00:24.280 --> 00:00:26.340
So we want to compare these numbers first.
00:00:26.470 --> 00:00:29.580
So, we have a four, a five, a five, and a five.
00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:37.370
So right away, we know that 4.944 is the smallest number that we have it will be the least.
00:00:37.810 --> 00:00:42.750
So for going from greatest to least, this should be the last number that we write down.
00:00:43.460 --> 00:00:49.440
So now with the last three, we need to compare the number next — the number to the right.
00:00:49.900 --> 00:00:53.370
So we are comparing a two, a seven, and a four.
00:00:54.100 --> 00:01:02.730
Out of two, seven, and four, two will be the smallest number, four will be between the two and the seven, and seven will be the largest.
00:01:03.430 --> 00:01:08.640
So out of all of the numbers, 5.74 is the largest number.
00:01:08.640 --> 00:01:09.880
So it must be the greatest.
00:01:09.910 --> 00:01:11.860
So we want to list this number first.
00:01:12.380 --> 00:01:14.310
So 5.74 is the greatest.
00:01:14.310 --> 00:01:15.590
So it would be written first.
00:01:15.840 --> 00:01:21.210
And now, we write the next largest number, which will be the 5.455.
00:01:21.620 --> 00:01:30.300
And we know this because the 4.944 — the number with the pink written with least — is the smallest number.
00:01:30.300 --> 00:01:38.590
So out of the three numbers that we wrote with yellow, the next largest was the 5.455.
00:01:39.510 --> 00:01:45.330
And then, the next largest as we’re getting smaller will be 5.224.
00:01:45.960 --> 00:01:52.120
And then, lastly the smallest of all four numbers will be 4.944.
00:01:52.650 --> 00:02:04.620
So ordering these numbers from greatest to least, we have 5.74, 5.455, 5.224, and 4.944.
00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:09.630
So as we can see, it doesn’t necessarily matter how many numbers are written down.
00:02:09.930 --> 00:02:11.680
It doesn’t make it the largest.
00:02:11.990 --> 00:02:20.720
It’s comparing the numbers in order that helps us decide the smallest and the largest and every number in between.
00:02:21.380 --> 00:02:23.880
So once again, this will be our final answer.
