## Spectrum Math Grade 5 Chapter 2 Lesson 2.8 Ordering Decimals Answers Key

To order a group of decimals, line up the decimal points.

2.14, 2.08, 2.1, and 2.01

All the ones are the same. 2.14 and 2.1 have the same tenths digit, but 14 is greater than zero. In the other two numbers, 8 is greater than 1.

List from least to greatest:

2.01, 2.08, 2.1, 2.14

**Order the decimals from least to greatest.**

Question 1.

7.52, 7.498, 7.521, 7.6

Answer:

7.498, 7.52, 7.521, 7.6

Explanation:

Given,

7.52, 7.498, 7.521, 7.6

To order a group of decimals, line up the decimal points.

7.52,

7.498,

7.521,

7.6.

All the ones are the same.

7.52 and 7.521 have the same tenths and hundredth digit, but in 7.521 there is 1 in thousandth place.

So, 7.521 is greater than 7.52.

In the other two numbers when we compare the tenth place 7.6 is greater than 7.498.

Know list from least to greatest:

7.498, 7.52, 7.521, 7.6

Question 2.

0.028, 0.080, 0.082, 0.008

Answer:

0.008, 0.028, 0.080, 0.082

Explanation:

Given,

0.028, 0.080, 0.082, 0.008

To order a group of decimals, line up the decimal points.

0.028,

0.080,

0.082,

0.008.

All the ones are the same with zeros.

So, compare the numbers after decimals.

0.080 and 0.082 have the same tenths and hundredth digit, but 2 in thousandth place is greater than zero.

So, 0.082 is greater than 0.080.

In the other two numbers when we compare the tenth place 0.028 is greater than 0.008.

Know list all the numbers from least to greatest:

0.008, 0.028, 0.080, 0.082

Question 3.

12.193, 12.201, 12.191, 12.200

Answer:

12.191, 12.193, 12.200, 12.201

Explanation:

Given,

12.193, 12.201, 12.191, 12.200

To order a group of decimals, line up the decimal points.

12.193,

12.201,

12.191,

12.200.

All the ones and tens are the same.

So, compare the numbers after decimals.

12.200 and 12.201 have the same tenths and hundredth digit, but 1 in thousandth place is greater than zero.

So, 12.201 is greater than 12.200

In the other two numbers when we compare the tenth and hundredth place are same,

but the number 3 in thousandth place is greater than 1.

So, 12.193 is greater than 12.191.

Know list all the numbers from least to greatest:

12.191, 12.193, 12.200, 12.201

Question 4.

0.116, 0. 108, 0. 113, 0.117

Answer:

0.108, 0.113, 0.116, 0.117

Explanation:

Given,

0.116, 0. 108, 0. 113, 0.117

To order a group of decimals, line up the decimal points.

0.116,

0. 108,

0. 113,

0.117.

All the ones are same with zeros.

So, compare the numbers after decimals.

0.117 and 0.116 have the same tenths and hundredth digit, but 7 in thousandth place is greater than 6.

So, 0.117 is greater than 0.116.

In the other two numbers when we compare the tenth place are same,

but the number 1 in hundredth place is greater than zero.

So, 0.113 is greater than 0.108.
