Place the following set of numbers in ascending order. -2/11, 5/8, 1/8, -1/9, 4/9


Well start by putting the most negative number first.
5/8 is bigger than 4/9. And 4/9 is certainly bigger tnan 1/9.

Give it a try and I'll tell you if you get it right

-1/9, -2/11, 1/8, 4/9, 5/8

Not quite. -2/11 (-18/99) is more negative than -1/9 (-11/99)




-2/11,-1/9 ,4/9, 1/8, 5/8
