Place the following set of numbers in ascending order.-2/9,5/9,1/8,-1/9,3/7?
Give it a try yourself -- then a math teacher will help you.
First, group the negative numbers: -2/9 and -1/9. Which is smaller?
Then the positive numbers: 5/9, 1/8, 3/7. Can you see the smallest and the largest ones in this group? If you're having trouble, find the common denominators and then sort them.
We'll be happy to check your work.
