Three numbers are given: 0.3,19/50,22%. We have to arrange the given numbers in increasing order.

We can convert all the given numbers either as fractions or decimal numbers or as a percent.

The given first number is 0.3. To convert the decimal number in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add percent sign, “%”.

⇒0.3×100

=3/10×100

=3×10

=30%

So, 0.3 is 30%.

The second given number is 19/50.

To convert the fraction in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add percent sign, “%”.

⇒19/50×100

=19×2

=38%.

So, 19/50 is 38%.

The given third number is 22% which is already a percent. Now, on comparing all the three percents, we get

∴38%>30%>22%.

⇒19/50>0.3>22%.

The final order of the numbers from the least to greatest is 22%<0.3<19/50.

**Page 51 Problem 18 Answer**

Three numbers are given: 11%,1/8,2/25. We have to arrange the given numbers in increasing order.

We can convert all the given numbers either as fractions or decimal numbers or as a percent.

The given first number 11% is already a percent. So, we have to convert the remaining two fractions, 1/8&2/25 to percent now.

∴To convert the fraction in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add percent sign, “%”.

⇒1/8×100

=25/2%

=12.5%

and 2/25×100

=2×4

=8%.

Now, on comparing all the three percents, we get

∴8%<11%<12.5%,

⇒2/25<11%<1/8.

**Page 51 Problem 19 Answer**

Three numbers are given: 5/8,0.675,5%.

We have to arrange the given numbers in increasing order.We can convert all the given numbers either as fractions or decimal numbers or as a percent.

The first given number is 5/8. To convert the fraction in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add the percent sign, “%”.

⇒5/8×100

=5×12.5

=62.5%.

So, 5/8 is 62.5%.

The given second number is 0.675. To convert the decimal number in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add the percent sign, “%”.

⇒0.675×100

=675/1000×100

=675/10%

=67.5%.

So, 0.675 is 67.5%.

The given third number is 5% which is already a percent. Now, on comparing all the three percents, we get

∴5%<62.5%<67.5%,

⇒5%<5/8<0.675.

The final order of the numbers from the least to greatest is 5%<5/8<0.675.

**Page 51 Problem 20 Answer**

Three numbers are given: 1.25,0.51,250% . We have to arrange the given numbers in increasing order.

We can convert all the given numbers either as fractions or decimal numbers or as a percent.

The first two given numbers are 1.25&0.51 which are decimal numbers.

To convert the decimal number into percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add the percent sign, “%”.

⇒1.25×100

=125/100×100

=125%

and

⇒0.51×100

=51/100×100

=51%.

The given third number is 250% which is already a percent. Now, on comparing all the three percents, we get

∴51%<125%<250%,

⇒0.51<1.25<250%.

The final order of the numbers from the least to greatest is 0.51<1.25<250%.

**Page 51 Problem 21 Answer**

Three numbers are given: 350/100,0.351,27%. We have to arrange the given numbers in increasing order.

We can convert all the given numbers either as fractions or decimal numbers or as percent.

The first given number is 350/100.

To convert the fraction in percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add the percent sign, “%”.

⇒350/100×100=350%

So, 350/100 is 350%.

The given second number is 0.351.

To convert the decimal number into percent, we have to multiply it by 100 and then add the percent sign, “%”.

⇒0.351×100

=351/1000×100

=351/10%

=35.1%.

So, 0.351/ is 35.1%.

The given third number is 27% which is already a percent. Now, on comparing all the three percents, we get

∴27%<35.1%<350%,

⇒27%<0.351<350/100.

The final order of the numbers from the least to greatest is 27%<0.351<350/100.

**Page 51 Problem 22 Answer**

Given: – There are three given numbers 4/8,0.05,51%. We have to order these number from the least to greatest.

We can order the numbers by simplifying the fractions and percentages until it becomes a number with a decimal point which makes comparison easier.

Simplifying the first fraction 4/8

=2⋅2/2⋅2⋅2

=1/2

=0.5

The second number is already in its decimal representation. There is no further simplification possible.

The third number is in its percentage form. Using the definition of percentage, we can express the number as 51%=51/100

=0.51

Now, comparing the three numbers, we have 0.51>0.5>0.05

This implies 51%>4/8>0.05

The final order of the numbers from the least to greatest is 0.05<4/8<51%.

**Page 51 Problem 23 Answer**
