00:00:01.320 --> 00:00:12.190
Order the following from least to greatest: negative one, negative 12, negative 18, the absolute value of negative five, four, and negative 19.
00:00:12.700 --> 00:00:13.960
Here we have our numbers.
00:00:14.090 --> 00:00:24.600
The only one that looks a little bit different is this one because it’s the absolute value of negative five, and absolute value signs make any number positive, so this is actually a positive five.
00:00:24.980 --> 00:00:31.240
So let’s go ahead and place these numbers on a number line to help us decide the order from least to greatest.
00:00:31.720 --> 00:00:33.040
So here we have a number line.
00:00:33.470 --> 00:00:38.330
Going to right, in the positive direction, would be in the greatest direction.
00:00:38.690 --> 00:00:44.660
Going towards the left, in the negative direction, would be in the least direction.
00:00:45.160 --> 00:00:46.420
So now let’s plot these.
00:00:46.720 --> 00:00:49.240
Negative one would be located around here.
00:00:49.570 --> 00:00:51.680
Negative 12 would be around here.
00:00:51.940 --> 00:00:53.930
Negative 18 would be here.
00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:58.470
The absolute value of negative five, which is truly a positive five, would be here.
00:00:58.900 --> 00:01:01.240
Four would be just below five.
00:01:01.670 --> 00:01:04.920
And negative 19 would be very close to negative 20.
00:01:05.490 --> 00:01:11.650
So to go from least to greatest, it will be actually the order on this number line, left to right.
00:01:12.300 --> 00:01:20.870
Therefore, we get negative 19, negative 18, negative 12, negative one, four, and the absolute value of negative five.
