Question:

Which of the following is listed in order from greatest to least?

A $7562_w18_h37.png$, $6118_w20_h38.png$, $8640_w9_h37.png$, -2. -5
Explaination

The rational numbers for this choice can be compared by either converting all of them to decimals or finding common denominators and comparing the newly written fractions. Using the first approach, the rational numbers shown for Choice B in order from left to right can be written as 6.4, 2.25, and 0.80. These numbers are indeed written in order from greatest to least. Also, the integer −2 is greater than −5. Thus, the numbers, $7562_w18_h37.png$, $6118_w20_h38.png$, $8640_w9_h37.png$, -2. -5, are listed in order from greatest to least.
