Comparing 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.
