Ordering decimals
posted by Marlo .
What is the easiest way to order a ten decimal numbers from greatest to least or visa versa.
This is from a 4th grader... Thanks...

not "a ten" sorry... delete a

I'd put them in an Excel spreadsheet, using cells in only one column. Then sort the data.

First, put the numbers to the left of the decimal point in order.
Example from greatest to least:
10.32; 8.1, 5.61
Then, put the numbers to the left of the decimal point in order.
Example from greatest to least:
0.9; 0.83; 0.67; 0.34; 0.33; 0.32 
What you have to do is look for the highest tenth number. if some of them are the same look in the hundreths. If those are the same look in the thousandths. Then you keep on going.

what number comes between the two given numbers? 10 11
