This is the exact question that is in my son's math book. Please help, I'm completely confused on the question.

REASONING Write in order from least to greatest the six numbers whose digits are 2,8, and 9.

The question must be referring to a set of numbers that were previously given. Please check.

NO, this is the 13th question. The previous questions were related to writing numbers from least to greatest (all different set of numbers), so if it was referring to them, it did NOT specify which ones. Wish I could scan the page in lol.

Was it referring to all of the numbers in 1-12 with digits of 2, 8, and 9?

They are eithe rcounted by 2's or counted by a straight 1.

I honestly wish I knew. If I can't figure this out within the next 15 mins, I will send a note to his teacher. I'm sure I won't be the only person not understanding this question. Thank you for your help.

Putting 2 and 8 and 9 in various combinations?

289 298 829 892 982 928

Then put them in order, least to greatest?

(I just did something like this with my granddaughter!!)
