Order the numbers starting with the largest. Match each number with its order.

So we have to find the largest numbers and order the numbers from largest to smallest. Let’s read each of the numbers: 1009909, 1023065, 1009099, 1230650. You may have noticed that each of these numbers begins with one million. So we need to move to the next digit to compare the numbers. This digit represents the hundred thousands.

The last number has two hundred thousandth. All the others have none. So 1230650 is the largest number. Let’s compare the ten thousand digit in each number. The second number has two ten thousands. The other two have none. So 1023065 is the second largest number.

Now, we just need to compare the remaining two numbers: 1009909, 1009099. Both of these numbers have nine thousands. So we need to move to the next column which is the hundreds column and compare those digits. The first number has nine hundreds. And our other remaining number has no hundreds. So out of our two remaining numbers, 1009909 is the largest, which makes this number the third largest. And this is the only number which we haven’t matched, which means this number is fourth. 1009099 is the smallest number.

We’ve ordered the numbers from largest to smallest. The largest number is 1230650. The second number is 1023065. The third number is 1009909. And the fourth number is 1009099.
