Numbers**

__Able
to sequence an arbitrary array of numbers in ascending and descending order.__

__Ascending
order__

Ascending order is arranging
numbers from smallest to biggest.

**EXAMPLE**

4278 4875 4923 4717

Since the digits at the thousandth
place are same in all the numbers, we compare the digits at the hundredth
place.

Thus, the numbers in **ascending
order** is,

4278 < 4717 < 4875 <
4923.

4278, 4717, 4875, 4923.

__Descending
order__

Descending order means arranging
numbers from biggest to smallest.

**EXAMPLE**

5234, 6271, 4234, 5172, 4871

Thus, the number in descending
order is,

6271 > 5234 > 5172 >
4871 > 4234

6271, 5234, 5172, 4871, 4234.

**Do You Know? **The reverse of
ascending order is descending order.
