Question from Esmeralda:

How May i order this 30%,3/100,7/20 and 0.33 from least to greatest

Hi Esmeralda,

You have four fractions, two expressed as common fractions, one as a percentage and one as a decimal fraction. I would first express all four as common fractions, for example 30% is 30/100.

Once you have four common factions express them all with a common denominator and then list them on order from smallest to largest.
