Which Set of Rational Numbers Is Arranged From Least to Greatest?


Question: Which set of rational numbers is arranged from least to greatest?

1. (-3/2, 0, 1/2, 8/2)

2. (4/2, 3/4, 0, -1/2)

Numbers that are represented in the form of p/q, where p is an integer and q is a non-zero integer are called rational numbers.

Answer: (-3/2, 0, 1/2, 8/2) is the set of rational numbers that are arranged from least to greatest.

We will see which set of rational numbers is arranged from the smallest number to the greatest number.

Explanation

  • Negative numbers are smaller than positive numbers. So, -3/2 is the smallest number. Therefore, -3/2 < 0.
  • Zero is greater than negative and smaller than a positive number. 
  • An improper fraction is greater than a proper fraction. Therefore, 1/2 < 8/2.

Hence, (-3/2, 0, 1/2, 8/2) is the set of rational numbers that is arranged from least to greatest.
