What is the order of the number eight when eight, seven, two, one, four, and nine are arranged in descending order?
00:00:13.680 --> 00:00:21.640
The numbers we are given are eight, seven, two, one, four, and nine.
00:00:22.640 --> 00:00:24.760
We have to arrange them in descending order.
00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:30.360
Descending order means from greatest to smallest.
00:00:31.000 --> 00:00:39.520
Which of the numbers eight, seven, two, four, one, and nine is the greatest number?
00:00:40.560 --> 00:00:42.600
Itâ€™s nine.
00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:54.320
From the remaining numbers, eight is the next greatest number, then seven, four, two, and one.
00:00:55.360 --> 00:01:00.600
Now we have to find the order of the number eight in this sequence of numbers.
00:01:01.360 --> 00:01:06.480
Nine is the first number, and eight is the second.
00:01:07.520 --> 00:01:14.640
When we ordered the numbers in descending order, the order of number eight is the second number.
