00:00:02.670 --> 00:00:11.550
Write the following numbers in descending order: one, four, 10, seven, and five.
00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:15.820
Descending means going down.
00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:18.730
So we start with the greatest number.
00:00:19.200 --> 00:00:21.750
And we end with the smallest number.
00:00:23.520 --> 00:00:34.390
We could use a number line to help us compare the numbers, one, four, 10, seven, and five.
00:00:35.890 --> 00:00:41.920
Remember, we have to start with the greatest number, which is 10.
00:00:43.260 --> 00:00:46.260
Remember, we’re writing numbers in descending order.
00:00:46.530 --> 00:00:50.280
So the numbers are going down or getting smaller each time.
00:00:50.550 --> 00:01:03.330
So we need to count back on the number line, 10, then seven, five, four, one.
00:01:04.970 --> 00:01:12.180
The numbers in descending order are 10, seven, five, four, one.
