Ms. Sue,
No. A. is not correct.
2.999 is the largest of this set of numbers. You're supposed to put them in order of INCREASING size. 
MATH 156 
NENAS,
So then if 2.999 is the largest set of numbers then what is it asking for by increasing size? hint please

MATH 156 
Marth,
Start with the smallest number and end with the largest number. If 2.99 is the largest number, then it should be at the end.

MATH 156 
NENAS,
So the answer is B?

MATH 156 
Marth,
Is 2.9 less than 2.099?

MATH 156 
NENAS,
No, oh ok I know the answer my bad Marth. thanks
