What is the order of the number
eight when eight, seven, two, one, four, and nine are arranged in descending
The numbers we are given are eight,
seven, two, one, four, and nine. We have to arrange them in
descending order. Descending order means from
greatest to smallest. Which of the numbers eight, seven,
two, four, one, and nine is the greatest number? It’s nine. From the remaining numbers, eight
is the next greatest number, then seven, four, two, and one.
Now we have to find the order of
the number eight in this sequence of numbers. Nine is the first number, and eight
is the second. When we ordered the numbers in
descending order, the order of number eight is the second number.
