Q:
# Order the expressions from least value to greatest value.

Accepted Solution

A:

you have to answer all of the equations first

-4.8 β’ 3.2 = -15.36 (negative times a positive is negative)

2 1/4 + (-1 2/5) first find a common denominator, which would be 20

9/4= 45/20

-7/5 = -28/20

since adding a negative is the same as subtracting a positive, you would subtract 45 and 28 which is 17.

17/20 = 1 3/20 (the answer)

turn the fraction into a decimal by dividing the top number by the bottom number, so 17/20 = 0.85

4.92 divided by -3 equals -1.64 (the answer)

-2 3/5 - (-1 2/5)

make them into improper fractions which is -13/5 and -7/5

it stays negative, so the answer is -6/5 or -1.2

so the answer is

-4.8 β’ 3.2 < 4.2 divided by -3 < -2 3/5 - (-1 2/5) < 2 1/4 + (-1 2/5)

-4.8 β’ 3.2 = -15.36 (negative times a positive is negative)

2 1/4 + (-1 2/5) first find a common denominator, which would be 20

9/4= 45/20

so the answer is

-4.8 β’ 3.2 < 4.2 divided by -3 < -2 3/5 - (-1 2/5) < 2 1/4 + (-1 2/5)
