Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try multiplying all numbers by 1000  that is  move the decimal point 3 spaces to the right. Then sort out the whole numbers into order...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then it would go 0.079, 0.79, 0.709,0.710, because if I'm reading the number line correctly 0.079 is the same as 79, but the rest are positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Not quite, lets ignore the left side of the line the negative numbers don't have anything to do with this, so let me just make a new one I guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dw:1440159668625:dw the line is obviously not to scale, and I'm using random numbers, notice how close you are to the 0, the more 0's there will be because essentially it will become 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So what's smaller here, 0.079 or 0.79

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I just figured it out! 1st. 0.079=79, 2nd. 0.709=709, 3rd. 0.710=710, 4th. 0.79=790. I think the more 0's there are the smaller the number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here is a fun problem for you Darion which number is smallest : \(0.80000\ldots\) or \(0.79999\ldots\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.79999; Anyway thank you all, so much for your help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope, forget it. coming back to the original problem, are you saying the increasing order of given numbers is \[\large 0.079,~~0.709,~~0.710,~~0.79\] ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm saying that I think that is the correct order of the numbers from smallest to largest.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.30.079<0.709<0.710<0.79 is this what you're saying

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No he asked me which of those two numbers was the smaller, and I put 0.79999, but that seemed to be incorrect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it turns out that they both are equal : \[0.79999\ldots ~~=~~ 0.80000\ldots\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The ... implies repeating 0's and 9... means repeating 9's
