Order this list from smallest to largest.
Problem 1 :
0.3, 15%, 2, 1/2
Solution :
15% = 15/100 = 0.15
1/2 = 0.5
0.3, 0.15, 2, 0.5
So, the number smallest to largest is 0.15 < 0.3 < 0.5 < 2.
Order this list from smallest to largest.
Problem 2 :
3/4, 3, 0.4, 5%
Solution :
3/4 = 0.75
5% = 0.05
0.75, 3, 0.4, 0.05
So, the number smallest to largest is 0.05 < 0.4 < 0.75 < 3.
Order this list from smallest to largest.
Problem 3 :
0.14, 4%, 0.48, 1/5
Solution :
4% = 0.04
1/5 = 0.2
0.14, 0.04, 0.48, 0.2

Order this list from smallest to largest.
Problem 4 :
0.46, 3%, 1/4, 0.14
Solution :
3% = 0.03
1/4 = 0.25
0.46, 0.03, 0.25, 0.14
So, the number smallest to largest is 0.03 < 0.14 < 0.25 < 0.46.
Order this list from smallest to largest.
Problem 5 :
6/5, 58.9%, 1.77, 0.169
Solution :
