Order the following numbers from
least to greatest.

In this question, we’re comparing
three four-digit numbers. We have to order these three
numbers from the least to the greatest. Let’s compare our numbers using the
place value chart. Our first four-digit number has one
1,000, no 100s, nine 10s, and no ones. The number is 1,090. Our second four-digit number also
has one 1,000. It has one 100, nine 10s, and no
ones. And our third four-digit number
also has one 1,000. It has no 100s, no 10s, and nine
ones.

Which of our three four-digit
numbers is worth the least? Let’s start by comparing the
thousands digits. Each of our numbers has the same
amount of thousands. They all have a one digit in the
thousands column, so we need to compare the hundreds digits. The number 1,090 has no 100s, and
the number 1,009 also has no 100s. But 1,190 has one 100, so we know
this is the greatest number. Let’s cross that number out. Now we can compare our two
remaining numbers. We need to compare the tens
digit. 1,090 has nine 10s, and 1,009 has
no tens, so we know 1,090 is worth more than 1,009.

We compared the value of the
thousands, hundreds, and tens digits and ordered the numbers from least to
greatest. The correct order is 1,009, 1,090,
and 1,190.
