### Ascending and Descending Order

Numbers can be arranged in ascending or descending order. In other words you can say that numbers can be arranged from smallest to greatest or greatest to smallest.

Ascending Order

In ascending order numbers are arranged in the order from smallest to greatest. For example: are in ascending order.

Arrange the following numbers in ascending order:

To solve this first we write smallest number that is. Then again write the smallest number from the remaining numbers that is and thus continue in the same way. The numbers are arranged in the ascending order.

Arrange the following numbers in ascending order:

To solve this first we write smallest number that is. Then again write the smallest number from the remaining numbers that is and thus continue in the same way. The numbers are arranged in the ascending order.

Arrange the following numbers in ascending order: 65, 98, 58, 49, 36, 62.

(a) 36,49,58,62,65,98

(b) 36,49,58,98,65,62

(c) 49,36,58,62,65,98

(d) 36,49,62,58,65,98

Arrange the following numbers in ascending order:

89, 91, 87, 86, 95, 79

(a) 79,86,87,89,95,91

(b) 79,86,87,91,89,95

(c) 89,86,87,79,91,95

(d) 79,86,87,89,91,95

Descending Order

In descending order numbers are written from greatest to smallest.

For example:are in descending order.

Arrange the following numbers in descending order:

To solve this first we write greatest number that is. Then again write the greatest number from the remaining numbers that is and thus continue in the same way. The numbers are arranged in the descending order.

Arrange the following numbers in descending order:

To solve this first we write greatest number that is. Then again write the greatest number from the remaining numbers that is and thus continue in the same way. The numbers are arranged in the descending order.

Arrange the following numbers in descending order:

65, 98, 58, 49, 36, 62

(a) 36,49,58,62,65,98

(b) 98,65,62,58,49,36

(c) 98,65,62,58,36,49

(d) 98,62,65,58,49,36

Arrange the following numbers in descending order:

89, 91, 87, 86, 95, 79

(a) 95,91,89,8786,79

(b) 95,89,91,8786,79

(c) 89, 95, 91, 89, 87 86, 79

(d) 79, 86, 87, 89, 91, 95

• We can compare the things on the basis of colour, size, shape, appearance,etc.

• Comparison means which one is greater or more and smaller than other.
• Sign of greater or bigger or more is '>'.
• Sign of smaller or less is '<'.
• Equal numbers are neither greater than nor smaller or less than each other.
• If one or more zeroes are put before any number, then number remains unchanged. For example 06 and 6 are equal.
• Comparison of images is the pictorial comparison.
• Ascending order means smallest to greatest.
• Descending order means greatest to smallest.
