## Numbers: Arranging Numbers

### 1. Arranging from smallest to largest

It is arranging numbers from the one with the least value to one with the highest value.

#### Practice Question 1

Arrange the following numbers from smallest to largest; 598, 601, 399, 248, 733.

The digits in the hundreds (place value) are 5, 6, 3, 2, and 7.
When arranged from smallest to largest, the numbers are 2, 3, 5, 6, 7.
Then, the correct order is 248, 399, 598, 601, 733.

#### Practice Question 2

Arrange the following numbers from smallest to largest; 528, 557, 501, 590, 538.

The digits in the hundreds (place value) are the same, so we consider the tens column.
When arranged from smallest to largest, the numbers are 0, 2, 3, 5, 9.
Then, the correct order is 501, 528, 538, 557, 590.

### 2. Arranging from largest to smallest

It is arranging numbers from the one with the highest value to one with the least value.

#### Practice Question 3

Arrange the following numbers from the largest to the smallest; 847, 748, 487, 874,784.

First, we consider the hundreds column, the numbers are grouped as 8, 8, 7, 7, 4.
Since number 8 and 7 occur more than once, we consider the tens column.
We can arrange them as: 87, 84, 78, 74, 48
Therefore, the answer is 874, 847, 784, 748, 487
