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.
- 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.
