00:00:01.270 --> 00:00:07.140
The table below shows the finishing times for four runners in a 100-meter race.
00:00:07.580 --> 00:00:10.390
In what order did the runners cross the finish line?
00:00:12.250 --> 00:00:17.290
The finishing order is the fastest to the slowest.
00:00:18.320 --> 00:00:23.330
And that means we’ll be ordering these values from least to greatest.
00:00:25.120 --> 00:00:30.880
Three of the runners finished in 13 seconds, and one runner finished in 14 seconds.
00:00:32.330 --> 00:00:37.170
We need to look at the tens place to find out which runner was the fastest.
00:00:38.640 --> 00:00:47.660
Charlotte has an eight in the tenths place, Isabella has a nine in the tenths place, and Jennifer has a seven in the tenths place.
00:00:48.610 --> 00:00:51.660
The seven in the tenths place is the smallest value.
00:00:52.070 --> 00:00:56.670
13.79 is the smallest time.
00:00:58.300 --> 00:01:04.880
Jennifer crossed the finish line first after 13.79 seconds.
00:01:06.510 --> 00:01:09.670
After that, we can compare Charlotte and Isabella.
00:01:10.300 --> 00:01:15.400
Charlotte finished in 13.84 of a second.
00:01:15.840 --> 00:01:19.390
Isabella finished in 13.97.
00:01:20.650 --> 00:01:29.180
Eight in the tenths place is smaller than nine in the tenths place, making Charlotte the second-place finisher.
00:01:30.560 --> 00:01:38.450
Isabella comes next and finally Elizabeth, who finished in 14.31 of a second.
00:01:40.890 --> 00:01:51.070
By comparing their racing times, we found that the order the runners crossed the finish line is this: Jennifer, Charlotte, Isabella, Elizabeth.
