Oh shoot! I read the problem wrong, what Ms.Sue said!

math 
kim,
yes, I don't understand how to solve the problem

math 
kim,
wow thank you now I understand

math 
Ms. Sue,
Look the first digits. The smallest is 2.
289 and 298.
Then look at the second digits. 8 is smaller than 9, so 289 is smaller than 298.
The first two numbers are:
289
298
Take it from there.
