My little brother needs help on his homework.
I'm kind of confused, today I'm not that bright. lol
I think the answer is number 1
Am i right?
Which shows the given values in ascending order?
a= 3.6 b= -5.5 c=3 4/5 d= -5 2/3
btw c and d are mixed fractions
1)b, d, a, c
2)d, b, a, c
3)d, b, c, a
4)b, d, c, a
Thanks so much!

Put them all in the same format and it becomes much easier. 3.6 is 3 9/30, 5.5 is 5 15/30, 3 4/5 is 3 24/30 and 5 2/3 is 5 20/30 B and D are both negatives, so they will be at the head of the line but you'll have to help him figure out which comes first. Show your brother how you arrived at the fractions and then have him line them up, cognizant of the fact that two are positive numbers and two are negative numbers.

Did you like the answer? it looks like that the class wants him to know that x if inverted to form the column in 1/x... so what he needs to do is to see what's in the x column and then invert it to fill the 1/x column. and if you have a fraction, you just invert the fraction... ie. 1/2 invereted became 1 / (1/2) which is equal to 2... good luck

It's 2 because -5 2/3 is -5.67 repeating and 3 4/5 is 3.8 So the order would be -5 2/3, -5.5, 3.6, and 3 4/5

remember that "left is less" so the number that is the farthest to the left on the number line (regardless of if it's positive or negative" will be the smallest. first, convert the fractions to decimals. a = 3.6 b = -5.5 c = 3.8 (because that is 4 divided by 5 or also 8 tenths) d = -5.6666666666666666666666666666666666 so, if "left is less,"and we are putting them in ascending order (which means smallest, getting larger), then d is the smallest b is the next largest a is the next largest, and c is the largest so choice 2) is correct

2/3 is 4/6 , .5 is 1/2 is 3/6 3 4/5 is 3 8/10 is 3.8 -5 2/3 , -5.5 , 3.6 , 3 4/5 d,b,a,c, so answer is 2

It's number 3, 3)d, b, c, a This is because -5 3/4 is -5.6 and b, -5.5, is lower of course. and then c, 3 4/5 is 3.8 and a is 3.6 so 3 4/5 is bigger so the answer is d, b, c, a

Ans: 2 Solution: (change the mixed fraction to a whole no.) c=3x5+4 = 19/5 = 3.8 d=-5x3+2 = -17/3 = -5.67 Clearly show that smallest is d, follow by b, a and c.

Ques 1: crossword puzzle on adjectives and adverbs >>> http://www.edhelper.com/language/language_samples18.html Ques 2: There are many ways to help victims of natural disasters. People or organizations interested in providing assistance may choose to provide material support, information or technical support, physical support, monetary support, and/or spiritual support. Material support can include things such as building materials, clothing, medicine, equipment, and technology. For example, an American construction company may donate heavy equipment to move debris caused by an earthquake in another country. Information or technical support may be provided by individuals or countries that have experienced a similar disaster. These helpers may use their expertise and experience to share strategies and plans for rebuilding, providing medical care, and temporary shelter, insuring safety, and transporting people and materials in a an area affected by a natural disaster. Individuals such as firefighters, construction workers, and nurses may volunteer their services to provide physical support to victims and their countries. For example, some Swedish companies sent medical doctors and engineers to Thailand to help the Thai rebuild after the Tsunami that struck a few years ago. Individuals may donate money directly to victims and/or to charitable organizations (such as the Red Cross) that provide direct assistance. Finally, counselors, psychologists, social workers, and the clergy may provide moral and spiritual support and guidance to people who have been devastated by natural disasters. Even young school children and college students can assist in alleviating problems and needs caused by natural disasters by collecting and distributing blankets, toiletries, and medicine and by preparing meals and writing cards and notes of encouragement to the victims. We all can help in some way. Even sharing information with others on the internet can be a way of indirectly helping victims of natural disasters. Ques 3: If I were earth I would weep for my children who have become extinct for whatever reason: my dinosaurs, my dodo bird, my tasmanian wolf, my Tahini ochrosia, my Hawaii Ruta Tree. Where have you gone, my sweet ones? If I were earth I would rejoice for the pleasure that my beauty, magesty and mystery provides to all living things. My mountains and valleys and oceans, and rivers, and caverns and islands offer shelter, sustinance, and enjoyment to all. If I were earth I would strut my stuff in the summer, let fly my leaves in autumn with a single head-shake, conceal death and muffle all sound with my soft, white snow-blanket in winter, and pop up my multicoloured, fragrent flowered head suddenly, everywhere to make kids giggle, young lovers embrace, and the elderly sign. If I were earth, I'd never die.
