Order the lines from longest to shortest. The question tells us we need to order the lines from the longest to the shortest. We need to find the longest line. To do this, we need to compare the lengths of the lines. Now that we’ve compared the lengths using these dotted lines, we can see that line 𝑏 is the longest. Now we need to compare the lengths of lines 𝑎, 𝑐, 𝑑, and 𝑒 to find the longest. Line 𝑎 is the longest of these lines. Now we can compare the lengths of lines 𝑐, 𝑑, and 𝑒. 𝑐 is the longest of these lines. Finally, we just need to compare the lengths of lines 𝑑 and 𝑒. 𝑑 is the longest of these two lines. That leaves us with line 𝑒, which means that line 𝑒 is the shortest. The order of the lines from longest to shortest is 𝑏, 𝑎, 𝑐, 𝑑, 𝑒.
