Definition of Ascending Order
Ascending order is the Arrangement of numbers(alphabets or others items) in a shorting order, that is from smallest to largest.
Examples of Ascending Order
Arrangement of numbers in ascending order
- Observe the number of digits and count it in each number. We know the smallest number is with the least number of digits . Place it first. Continue this process till all the numbers left for comparison have the same number of digits.
- If some numbers are of same number of digits, then compare the numbers from the leftmost digit. Place the number with the smallest digit.
- For numbers having leftmost digits are same, start the comparison from the right . Place the number with smaller digit.
- Continue this process till we arrange all the numbers.
Example1 : Arrange numbers in ascending order.
Follow the above steps to arrange in ascending order.
step 1 – count the number of digits. Least number of digit is 6.Write it first. 6,17,27,33,12,202.
step2 – For same number of digit start comparison from left most digit and write the smallest digit . 6,17,12,27,33,202.
step 3 – If the left most digits are same. start comparison from the right. write the smaller digit number. 6,12,17,27,33,202.
Example 2 – Arrange the numbers in ascending order.
Ans – 5,65,129,3244,28.
step1-least number of digit(single digit) come first. write 5 first.
Follow the above steps to arrange the numbers.
answer is – 5,28,65,129,3244.
Ascending Order in fractions
Fraction is telling about the ratio of numerator and denominator.
Example 1- Arrange the fractions in ascending order.
Ans- To solve this we have to take the LCM of the denominators.
Which is 30.
we can write these numbers as
Now ascending the fractions according to their numerators.
it is 1/2 < 3/5 < 2/3 < 5/6.
