Write these numbers in order of size, starting with the smallest. 1.9, 0.96, 1.253, 0.328.

Both of these numbers have a one before the decimal. The nine in this number represents nine-tenths. And the two digit represents two-tenths. Since nine is greater than two, 1.9 is the largest of these two numbers. So we can write 1.9 as the largest number and 1.253 as the next largest.

Now, we just need to compare 0.96 and 0.328 to see which is the smallest of these two numbers. They both have a zero before the decimal place. 0.96 has nine-tenths and 0.328 has three-tenths. So 0.328 is the smallest of these two numbers. Now all we need to do is write 0.96 in the empty box.

The numbers in order of size, starting with the smallest, are 0.328, 0.96, 1.253, and 1.9.
