Write the numbers in order of increasing size. "can anyone please help me I think the answer is A am I correct?
14) 2.09, 2.9, 2.099, 2.999
A)2.999, 2.9, 2.099, 2.09
B)2.09, 2.9, 2.099, 2.999
C)2.09, 2.099, 2.9, 2.999
D)2.099, 2.09, 2.999, 2.9

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. 
So then if 2.999 is the largest set of numbers then what is it asking for by increasing size? hint please

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.

So the answer is B?

Is 2.9 less than 2.099?

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