Good Morning!

Children, I have been pondering the following question;

**How do I place the following numbers in descending order? **

**1.9 0.96 1.253 0.328**

Step 1: Place the numbers in descending order.

Step 2: Explain how I would do this.

**Remember to use mathematical language e.g. tenths, hundredths, thousandths. **

Maths Reasoning

1.9,1.253,0.96 and 0.328. you would put them in this order because :

1.9 is the biggest out of 1.9 and 1.253 as the 9 tenths is bigger than 2 tenths. 1.253 is bigger than 0.96 because it has more ones. 0.96 is bigger than 0.328 because the 9 tenths is bigger than 3 vtenths.

1.253 1.9 328 0 .96 You need to look for the biggest number then the next and so on.

Decimal numbers in descending order:

the order it would go in would be:

1) 1.9

2) 1.253

3) 0.96

4) 0.328

I think this because i looked at the first column (the ones) and i saw that 1 one is bigger than no ones. so, I looked at the two decimals, 1.253 and 1.9. straight away, i saw that 9 tenths are bigger than 2 tenths so I gathered that it was the largest number. I looked at the ones, tenths, hundredths and thousandths until i worked it out eventually.

1.9, 1.253, 0.96, 1.253.

I looked at all the numbers and looked at the first number before the decimal and I knew that 1 is bigger than 0 so l put all the ones in order.After I did that I worked out the order of the decimals starting with 0.

Thank you Mr Mallison for teaching us this in class

The list would go like this ,

1.9,

1.253,

0.96,

0.328.

The list would go like this because if you look at the ones column you can see 1 is bigger than 0 then you look at the hundreds column, 0.1000, 0.100000, .

Hi Mr Mallison this is maths challenge.

It would be :

1.9,

1.253,

0.96,

0.328.

This is done:)

Sorry I forgot about explaining.

I think it would be in the ones column,tenths column, hundredths column and thousandths column. I did this like we did it at school.In maths for a starter for the lesson .I remembered all the ways through it and I think I succeeded:)

Well first find the smallest one and the smallest one is 1.9,then find the next smallest one and that is 1.253 ,the next one is 0.96,the last one is0.328.

Hi Mr Mallison,

Descending Order: 1.9, 1.253, 0.96, 0.328.

I think all these numbers would be probably in the ones column, the tenths column, the hundredths column and the thousandths column. I think this because 1.9 is bigger than 1.253 because 9 tenths is bigger than 2 tenths, also 1.253 is bigger than 0.96 because it has more ones. Finally 0.96 is bigger than 0.328 because 9 tenths is bigger than 3 tenths.

Hi Mr Mallison!

I thin these are the answers to the question:

A)1.9

B)1.235

C)0.96

D)0.328

You look at tenths hundredths and thousenths so it would be like this:

1.9 1.253 0.96 0.328

All you have to do is look at the ones so 1one is bigger than 0 so they would come first.Then you can see that 9 is bigger than 3 so 0.96 would be next and 0.328 would come last.😄

Thank you to all of the children that have had a go at this task; the answers are:

A)1.9

B)1.235

C)0.96

D)0.328

The reason for this is that both 1.9 and 1.235 share 1s but 9 tenths is larger than 2 tenths. 0.96 is smaller than both of these numbers because it doesn’t have a 1 but it is larger than 0.328 because 9 tenths is bigger than 3 tenths.
