Welcome to the presentation on ordering numbers.

Lets get started with some problems that I think,

as you go through the examples hopefully,

you'll understand how to do these problems.

So let's see.

The first set of numbers that we have to order

is 35.7%,108.1%, 0.5, 13/93, and 1 and 7/68

So let's do this problem.

The important thing to remember whenever you're

doing this type of ordering of numbers is to realize

that these are all just different ways to represent

these are all a precent or a decimal or a fraction or

a mixed numberare all just different ways of representing numbers.

It's very hared to compare when you just look at it like this,

so what I like to do is I like to convert them all to decimals.

But, you know,there could be someone who likes to convert them all to percentages

or convert them all to fractions and then compare.

But I always find decimals to be the easiest way to compare.

So let's start with this 35.7%.

Let's turn this into a decimal.

Well, the easiest thing to remember is if you have a percent

you just get rid of the precent sign and put it over 100.

So 35.7% is the same thing as 35.7/100.

Не синхронизирани
Like 5%, that's the same thing as 5/100

Не синхронизирани
or 50% is just the same thing as 50/100.

Не синхронизирани
So 35.7/100, well, that just equals 0.357.

Не синхронизирани
If this got you a little confused

Не синхронизирани
another way to think about percentage points is if I write 35.7%,

Не синхронизирани
all you have to do is get rid of the percent sign

Не синхронизирани
and move the decimal to the left two spaces

Не синхронизирани
and it becomes 0.357

Не синхронизирани
Let me give you a couple of more examples down here.

Не синхронизирани
Let's say I had 5%.

Не синхронизирани
That is the same thing as 5/100.

Не синхронизирани
Or if you do the decimal technique, 5%,

Не синхронизирани
you could just move the decimal and you get rid of the percent.

Не синхронизирани
And you move the decimal over 1 and 2, and you put a 0 here.

Не синхронизирани
It's 0.05.

Не синхронизирани
And that's the same thing as 0.05.

Не синхронизирани
You also know that 0.05 and 5/100 are the same thing.

Не синхронизирани
So let's get back to the problem.

Не синхронизирани
I hope that distraction didn't distract you too much.

Не синхронизирани
Scratch out all this.

Не синхронизирани
So 35.7% is equal to 0.357.

Не синхронизирани
Similarly, 108.1%.

Не синхронизирани
Let's to the technique where we just get rid of the percent

Не синхронизирани
and move the decimal space over 1,2 spaces to the left.

Не синхронизирани
So then that equals 1.081.

Не синхронизирани
See we already know that this is samller than this.

Не синхронизирани
Well the next one is easy, it's already in decimal form.

Не синхронизирани
0.5 is just going to be equal to 0.5.

Не синхронизирани
Now 13/93.

Не синхронизирани
To convert a fraction into a decimal

Не синхронизирани
we just take the denominator and divide it into the numerator.

Не синхронизирани
So let's do that.

Не синхронизирани
93 goes into 13?

Не синхронизирани
Well, we know it goes into 13 zero times. Right?

Не синхронизирани
So let's add a decimal point here.

Не синхронизирани
So how many times does 93 go into 130?

Не синхронизирани
Well, it goes into it one time.

Не синхронизирани
1 times 93 is 93.

Не синхронизирани
Becomes a 10.

Не синхронизирани
That becomes a 2.

Не синхронизирани
Then we're going to borrow, we get 37.

Не синхронизирани
Bring down a 0.

Не синхронизирани
So 93 goes into 370?

Не синхронизирани
Let's see

Не синхронизирани
4 times 93 would be 372, so it actually goes into

Не синхронизирани
it only three times.

Не синхронизирани
3 times 3 is 9.

Не синхронизирани
3 times 9 is 27.

Не синхронизирани
So this equals?

Не синхронизирани
Let's see, this equalsif we say that this 0 becomes a 10.

Не синхронизирани
This become a 16.

Не синхронизирани
This becomes a 2.

Не синхронизирани
81.

Не синхронизирани
And then we say, how many times does 93 go into 810?

Не синхронизирани
It goes roughly 8 times.

Не синхронизирани
And we could actually keep going,

Не синхронизирани
but for the sake of comparing these numbers,

Не синхронизирани
we've already gotten to a pretty good level of accuracy.

Не синхронизирани
So let's just stop this problem here

Не синхронизирани
because the decimal numbers could keep going on,

Не синхронизирани
but for the sake of comparison

Не синхронизирани
I think we've already got a good sense of what this decimal looks like.

Не синхронизирани
It's 0.138 and then it'll just keep going.

Не синхронизирани
So let's write that down.

Не синхронизирани
And then finally, we have this mixed number here.

Не синхронизирани
And let me erase some of my work

Не синхронизирани
because I don't want to confuse you.

Не синхронизирани
Actually, let me keep it the way it is right now.

Не синхронизирани
So these two ways

Не синхронизирани
the easiest way to convert a mixed number into a decimal is

Не синхронизирани
to just say, OK, this is 1 and then some fraction

Не синхронизирани
that's less than 1.

Не синхронизирани
Or we could convert it to a fraction, an improper fraction

Не синхронизирани
likeoh, actually there are no improper fractions here.

Не синхронизирани
Actually, let's do it that way.

Не синхронизирани
Let's convert to an improper fraction

Не синхронизирани
and then convert that into a decimal.

Не синхронизирани
Actually, I think I'm going to need more space,

Не синхронизирани
so let me clean up this a little bit.

Не синхронизирани
There we have a little more space to work with now.

Не синхронизирани
So 1 and 7/68.

Не синхронизирани
So to go from a mixed number to an improper fraction,

Не синхронизирани
what you do is you take the 68 times 1

Не синхронизирани
and add it to the numerator here.

Не синхронизирани
And why does this make sense?

Не синхронизирани
Because this is the same thing as 1 plus 7/68. Right?

Не синхронизирани
1 and 7/68 is the same thing as 1 plus 7/68.

Не синхронизирани
And that's the same thing as you know

Не синхронизирани
from the fractions module, as 68/68 plus 7/68.

Не синхронизирани
And that's the same thing as 68 plus 775/68.

Не синхронизирани
So 1 and 7/68 is equal to 75/68.

Не синхронизирани
And now we convert this to a decimal

Не синхронизирани
using the technique we did for 13/93.

Не синхронизирани
So we saylet me get some space.

Не синхронизирани
We say 68 goes into 75

Не синхронизирани
suspicion I'm going to run out of space.

Не синхронизирани
68 goes into 75 one time.

Не синхронизирани
1 times 68 is 68.

Не синхронизирани
75 minus 68 is 7.

Не синхронизирани
Bring down the 0.

Не синхронизирани
Actually, you don't have to write the decimal there.

Не синхронизирани
Ignore that decimal.

Не синхронизирани
68 goes into 70 one time.

Не синхронизирани
1 times 68 is 68.

Не синхронизирани
70 minus 68 is 2, bring down another 0.

Не синхронизирани
68 goes into 20 zero times.

Не синхронизирани
And the problem's going to keep going on,

Не синхронизирани
but I think we've already once again,

Не синхронизирани
gotten to enough accuracy that we can compare.

Не синхронизирани
So 1 and 7/68 we've now figured out is equal to 1.10

Не синхронизирани
and if we kept dividing we'll keep getting more decimals of accuracy,

Не синхронизирани
but I think we're now ready to compare.

Не синхронизирани
So all of these numbers I just rewrote them as decimals.

Не синхронизирани
So 35.7% is 0.357.

Не синхронизирани
108.1%ignore this for now

Не синхронизирани
because we just used that to do the work.

Не синхронизирани
It's 108.1% is equal to 1.081.

Не синхронизирани
0.5 is 0.5.

Не синхронизирани
13/93 is 0.138.

Не синхронизирани
And 1 and 7/68 is 1.10 and it'll keep going on.

Не синхронизирани
So what's the samllest?

Не синхронизирани
So the samllest is 0.

Не синхронизирани
Actually, the smallest is right here.

Не синхронизирани
So I'm going to rank them from samllest to largest.

Не синхронизирани
So the samllest is 0.138.

Не синхронизирани
Then the next largest is going to be 0.357. Right?

Не синхронизирани
Then the next largest is going to be 0.5.

Не синхронизирани
Then you're going to have 1.08.

Не синхронизирани
And then you're going to have 1 and 7/68.

Не синхронизирани
So hopefully, actually, I'm going to do more examples of this,

Не синхронизирани
but for this video I think this is the only one I have time for.

Не синхронизирани
But hopefully this gives you a sense of doing these problems.

Не синхронизирани
I always find it easier to go into the decimal mode to compare.

Не синхронизирани
And actually, the hints on the module will be the same for you.

Не синхронизирани
But I think you're ready at least now to try the problems.

Не синхронизирани
If you're not, if you want to see other examples,

Не синхронизирани
you might just want to eithere rewatch this video

Не синхронизирани
and/or I might record some more videos with more examples right now.

Не синхронизирани
Anyway, have fun.
