Welcome to the presentation on ordering numbers.
0:00:04.143,0:00:05.930
Lets get started with some problems that I think,
0:00:05.945,0:00:08.240
as you go through the examples hopefully,
0:00:08.286,0:00:10.171
you'll understand how to do these problems.
0:00:10.217,0:00:11.656
So let's see.
0:00:11.686,0:00:14.174
The first set of numbers that we have to order [br]
0:00:14.205,0:00:44.141
is 35.7%,108.1%, 0.5, 13/93, and 1 and 7/68
0:00:44.187,0:00:45.723
So let's do this problem.
0:00:45.739,0:00:48.272
The important thing to remember whenever you're [br]
0:00:48.272,0:00:52.033
doing this type of ordering of numbers is to realize
0:00:52.033,0:00:54.990
that these are all just different ways to represent
0:00:55.051,0:00:58.736
these are all a precent or a decimal or a fraction or
0:00:58.751,0:01:02.076
a mixed number--are all just different [br]ways of representing numbers.
0:01:02.122,0:01:04.872
It's very hard to compare when [br]you just look at it like this,
0:01:04.902,0:01:07.472
so what I like to do is I like to [br]convert them all to decimals.[br]
0:01:07.489,0:01:11.668
But, you know,there could be someone who [br]likes to convert them all to percentages
0:01:11.672,0:01:13.945
or convert them all to fractions and then compare.
0:01:14.014,0:01:16.597
But I always find decimals to be [br]the easiest way to compare.
0:01:16.597,0:01:19.297
So let's start with this 35.7%.[br]
0:01:19.297,0:01:21.527
Let's turn this into a decimal.
0:01:21.588,0:01:25.436
Well, the easiest thing to remember is[br]if you have a percent
0:01:25.436,0:01:28.648
you just get rid of the precent sign [br]and put it over 100.[br]
0:01:28.660,0:01:37.556
So 35.7% is the same thing as 35.7/100.
0:01:37.587,0:01:41.466
Like 5%, that's the same thing as 5/100 [br]
0:01:41.501,0:01:44.684
or 50% is just the same thing as 50/100.
0:01:44.731,0:01:53.509
So 35.7/100, well, that just equals 0.357.
0:01:53.571,0:01:54.891
If this got you a little confused
0:01:54.968,0:01:59.155
another way to think about percentage points is [br]if I write 35.7%,
0:01:59.186,0:02:03.024
all you have to do is get rid of the percent sign
0:02:03.076,0:02:07.269
and move the decimal to the left two spaces [br]
0:02:07.315,0:02:09.616
and it becomes 0.357
0:02:09.709,0:02:11.839
Let me give you a couple of [br]more examples down here.
0:02:11.877,0:02:14.344
Let's say I had 5%.
0:02:14.405,0:02:19.619
That is the same thing as 5/100.
0:02:19.665,0:02:22.406
Or if you do the decimal technique, 5%,
0:02:22.429,0:02:24.506
you could just move the decimal [br]and you get rid of the percent.
0:02:24.629,0:02:28.598
And you move the decimal over 1 and 2, [br]and you put a 0 here.[br]
0:02:28.652,0:02:29.921
It's 0.05.
0:02:29.968,0:02:32.370
And that's the same thing as 0.05.[br]
0:02:32.420,0:02:36.153
You also know that 0.05 and[br]5/100 are the same thing.
0:02:36.171,0:02:37.717
So let's get back to the problem.
0:02:37.763,0:02:40.587
I hope that distraction didn't distract you too much.
0:02:40.614,0:02:42.514
Scratch out all this.[br]
0:02:42.545,0:02:47.674
So 35.7% is equal to 0.357.[br]
0:02:47.690,0:02:51.766
Similarly, 108.1%.[br]
0:02:51.794,0:02:53.741
Let's to the technique where [br]we just get rid of the percent
0:02:53.767,0:02:59.139
and move the decimal space over [br]1,2 spaces to the left.
0:02:59.139,0:03:05.975
So then that equals 1.081.
0:03:05.975,0:03:10.999
See we already know that this is samller than this.
0:03:11.034,0:03:13.963
Well the next one is easy,[br]it's already in decimal form.
0:03:14.025,0:03:16.372
0.5 is just going to be equal to 0.5.
0:03:16.402,0:03:20.942
Now 13/93.
0:03:20.996,0:03:23.713
To convert a fraction into a decimal
0:03:23.744,0:03:27.155
we just take the denominator [br]and divide it into the numerator.
0:03:27.169,0:03:28.335
So let's do that.
0:03:28.350,0:03:33.523
93 goes into 13?[br]
0:03:33.530,0:03:39.390
Well, we know it goes into 13 zero times. Right?
0:03:39.416,0:03:42.084
So let's add a decimal point here.
0:03:42.104,0:03:47.181
So how many times does 93 go into 130?
0:03:47.230,0:03:48.838
Well, it goes into it one time.
0:03:48.853,0:03:52.069
1 times 93 is 93.
0:03:52.108,0:03:56.044
Becomes a 10.
0:03:56.100,0:03:58.449
That becomes a 2.
0:03:58.478,0:04:02.060
Then we're going to borrow, we get 37.
0:04:02.090,0:04:05.074
Bring down a 0.
0:04:05.088,0:04:09.509
So 93 goes into 370?
0:04:09.518,0:04:10.649
Let's see
0:04:10.664,0:04:14.722
4 times 93 would be 372, so it actually goes into
0:04:14.738,0:04:15.882
it only three times.
0:04:15.882,0:04:21.779
3 times 3 is 9.
0:04:21.810,0:04:25.677
3 times 9 is 27.
0:04:25.698,0:04:30.818
So this equals?
0:04:30.870,0:04:37.427
Let's see, this equals--if we say[br]that this 0 becomes a 10.
0:04:37.446,0:04:39.438
This become a 16.
0:04:39.469,0:04:41.246
This becomes a 2.
0:04:41.292,0:04:44.093
81.
0:04:44.100,0:04:47.803
And then we say, how many times[br]does 93 go into 810?
0:04:47.803,0:04:49.749
It goes roughly 8 times.
0:04:49.749,0:04:51.897
And we could actually keep going, [br]
0:04:51.942,0:04:53.966
but for the sake of comparing these numbers,
0:04:53.966,0:04:57.512
we've already gotten to a [br]pretty good level of accuracy.[br]
0:04:57.558,0:04:59.998
So let's just stop this problem here [br]
0:04:59.998,0:05:01.490
because the decimal numbers could keep going on,
0:05:01.536,0:05:02.790
but for the sake of comparison[br]
0:05:02.821,0:05:04.998
I think we've already got a good [br]sense of what this decimal looks like.
0:05:04.999,0:05:09.599
It's 0.138 and then it'll just keep going.
0:05:09.599,0:05:11.592
So let's write that down.
0:05:11.592,0:05:15.351
And then finally, we have this mixed number here.
0:05:15.389,0:05:16.550
And let me erase some of my work
0:05:16.566,0:05:18.652
because I don't want to confuse you.
0:05:18.667,0:05:21.034
Actually, let me keep it the way it is right now.
0:05:21.088,0:05:21.739
So these two ways[br]
0:05:21.770,0:05:25.444
the easiest way to convert a [br]mixed number into a decimal is
0:05:25.444,0:05:29.532
to just say, OK, this is 1 and then some fraction
0:05:29.578,0:05:32.598
that's less than 1.
0:05:32.621,0:05:36.407
Or we could convert it to a fraction, [br]an improper fraction[br]
0:05:36.430,0:05:38.793
like--oh, actually there are [br]no improper fractions here.[br]
0:05:38.870,0:05:39.626
Actually, let's do it that way.
0:05:39.657,0:05:41.036
Let's convert to an improper fraction
0:05:41.036,0:05:42.414
and then convert that into a decimal.
0:05:42.491,0:05:45.791
Actually, I think I'm going to need more space,
0:05:45.806,0:05:48.901
so let me clean up this a little bit.
0:05:48.956,0:06:00.531
There we have a little more space to work with now.
0:06:00.550,0:06:08.289
So 1 and 7/68.
0:06:08.366,0:06:12.460
So to go from a mixed number to[br]an improper fraction,
0:06:12.483,0:06:16.840
what you do is you take the 68 times 1
0:06:16.863,0:06:19.628
and add it to the numerator here.[br]
0:06:19.677,0:06:20.813
And why does this make sense?
0:06:20.874,0:06:26.236
Because this is the same thing as 1 plus 7/68. Right?
0:06:26.282,0:06:28.977
1 and 7/68 is the same thing as 1 plus 7/68.[br]
0:06:29.007,0:06:31.542
And that's the same thing as you know
0:06:31.544,0:06:39.271
from the fractions module, as 68/68 plus 7/68.
0:06:39.317,0:06:47.259
And that's the same thing as 68 plus 7--75/68.[br]
0:06:47.290,0:06:51.638
So 1 and 7/68 is equal to 75/68.[br]
0:06:51.669,0:06:54.099
And now we convert this to a decimal [br]
0:06:54.099,0:06:56.293
using the technique we did for 13/93.[br]
0:06:56.370,0:06:58.604
So we say--let me get some space.
0:06:58.612,0:07:04.258
We say 68 goes into 75
0:07:04.310,0:07:06.102
suspicion I'm going to run out of space.[br]
0:07:06.117,0:07:09.217
68 goes into 75 one time.[br]
0:07:09.224,0:07:13.078
1 times 68 is 68.
0:07:13.107,0:07:15.683
75 minus 68 is 7.
0:07:15.714,0:07:17.273
Bring down the 0.
0:07:17.303,0:07:19.540
Actually, you don't have to write the decimal there.
0:07:19.581,0:07:20.920
Ignore that decimal.
0:07:20.944,0:07:23.584
68 goes into 70 one time.
0:07:23.599,0:07:26.113
1 times 68 is 68.
0:07:26.128,0:07:30.419
70 minus 68 is 2, bring down another 0. [br]
0:07:30.451,0:07:32.941
68 goes into 20 zero times.[br]
0:07:32.968,0:07:35.053
And the problem's going to keep going on,
0:07:35.053,0:07:37.347
but I think we've already once again,
0:07:37.363,0:07:39.772
gotten to enough accuracy that we can compare.[br]
0:07:39.833,0:07:47.363
So 1 and 7/68 we've now figured out is equal to 1.10
0:07:47.365,0:07:51.555
and if we kept dividing we'll keep [br]getting more decimals of accuracy, [br]
0:07:51.601,0:07:53.122
but I think we're now ready to compare.[br]
0:07:53.184,0:07:56.119
So all of these numbers I just [br]rewrote them as decimals.
0:07:56.151,0:08:00.066
So 35.7% is 0.357.
0:08:00.084,0:08:04.370
108.1%--ignore this for now [br]
0:08:04.408,0:08:05.585
because we just used that to do the work.[br]
0:08:05.616,0:08:09.277
It's 108.1% is equal to 1.081.[br]
0:08:09.309,0:08:10.759
0.5 is 0.5.
0:08:10.805,0:08:15.126
13/93 is 0.138.
0:08:15.173,0:08:19.915
And 1 and 7/68 is 1.10 and it'll keep going on.[br]
0:08:19.943,0:08:22.565
So what's the samllest?
0:08:22.611,0:08:25.288
So the samllest is 0.
0:08:25.313,0:08:27.351
Actually, the smallest is right here.[br]
0:08:27.382,0:08:31.376
So I'm going to rank them from samllest to largest.
0:08:31.414,0:08:35.537
So the samllest is 0.138.[br]
0:08:35.565,0:08:39.956
Then the next largest is going to be 0.357. Right?
0:08:40.013,0:08:42.854
Then the next largest is going to be 0.5.[br]
0:08:42.861,0:08:46.223
Then you're going to have 1.08.[br]
0:08:46.269,0:08:51.349
And then you're going to have 1 and 7/68.
0:08:51.358,0:08:56.500
So hopefully, actually, I'm going to [br]do more examples of this,
0:08:56.523,0:09:00.014
but for this video I think this[br]is the only one I have time for. [br]
0:09:00.022,0:09:01.830
But hopefully this gives you a [br]sense of doing these problems.
0:09:01.860,0:09:05.106
I always find it easier to go into [br]the decimal mode to compare.
0:09:05.136,0:09:07.515
And actually, the hints on the module [br]will be the same for you.
0:09:07.546,0:09:10.789
But I think you're ready at least [br]now to try the problems.
0:09:10.827,0:09:12.409
If you're not, if you want to see other examples,
0:09:12.440,0:09:15.026
you might just want to either re-watch this video
0:09:15.049,0:09:19.848
and/or I might record some more videos [br]with more examples right now.
0:09:19.862,9:59:59.000
Anyway, have fun.
