The easiest way is to convert the mixed numbers and fractions to decimals by dividing the numerators (top) numbers by the denominator (bottom) numbers of each fraction - for a mixed number, the whole number needs to be added on.

  1. Then, comparing the whole numbers order as much as possible the numbers.
    1. Start with the tenths digit (the digit immediately to the right of the decimal point)
    2. Sort those groups of numbers with the same digits so far based on the current decimal digit
    3. If there are still groups of numbers, use the next decimal digit (hundredth, thousandth, etc) until a distinction can be made.
  2. Where there are a group of numbers with the same whole number, start looking at the decimal digits:

Write the list out of numbers out in their original form (decimal, fraction or mixed number).

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Fractions and decimals are different ways of notating the same thing: a number that falls between two whole numbers.
