Which of the following are the numbers NOT in correct order from SMALLEST to LARGEST?

A.)-3.1, -3.5, 0, 0.7, 1.5
B.)-2.3, -1.5, 0.1, 0.33, 0.35
C.)-6.1, -5.33, -4, -0.25, 0
D.)-2.3, -1.5, -0.9, 0, 0.09


Draw a number line, something like this.

-4...-3...-2...-1...0...1...2...3. etc
Then compare the numbers you have in each answer with the number line and you can tell which is out of order. You may need to extend the number line both ways for some of the answers. If this doesn't help, please repost and tell us what you don't understand.

The greater the negative is the smaller the number actually is

the answer is A.)-3.1, -3.5, 0, 0.7, 1.5 because -3.5 is smaller than -3.1. the others are fine
