        1.5 Arranging Numbers in Ascending and Descending Order

       Activity

      Use cards below.

      942,704               942,407          1,496,066        1,496,606

      •  Order pairs of cards in ascending order.
      •  Write the order on slips of paper.
      •  Change to ordering cards in descending order.
      •  Write down the order.
      What did you consider when ordering the numbers in the cards? Explain your
      procedure to the class.

      Example

      Arrange the following numbers in ascending and descending order.

      1,707,055 1,770,550 3,025,446 3,205,446

      Solution

      Use a place value table to compare the digits.

      x

      •  Start comparing from the highest place value to the lowest place value.
      •  In ones of millions, 1 = 1, 3 = 3, but 1 < 3 and 3 > 1.
      •  In hundred thousands, 7 = 7, 0 < 2, so, 3,205,446 > 3,025,446; 3,025,446> 1,770,550; 1,770,550 > 1,707,055.
      •  Also, 1,707,055 < 1,770,550; 1,770,550 < 3,025,446 and 3,025,446 < 3,205,444.
      • Ascending order is the arrangement from the smallest to the biggest. So,the ascending order is 1,707,055; 1,770,550; 3,025,446; 3,205,446.
      •  Descending order is the arrangement from the biggest to the smallest. So,the descending order is 3,205,446; 3,025,446; 1,770,550; 1,707,055.

      Study tip

      • A number is greater than another if its corresponding digit of another number in the same place value is smaller if they have the same number of digits.
      • A number is smaller than another if its corresponding digit of another number in the same place value is bigger.
      •  A number with more digits is bigger than the other.
      •  A number with fewer digits is smaller than the other.
      Application 1.5

      x

       Units

      •  Subtract ones: 0 - 0 = 0, write 0 under ones.
      • Subtract tens: 2 - 5 = (not possible), borrow 1 from hundreds, then regroup with tens to get 12 - 5 = 7. Now write 7 under tens.
      • Subtract hundreds: 5 - 5 = 0, write 0 under hundreds.

      Thousands

      • Subtract thousands: 5 - 9 (not possible), borrow 1 from ten thousand, then regroup with thousands to get 15 - 9 = 6. Now write 6 under thousands.
      • Subtract ten thousands: 7 - 9 (not possible), borrow 1 from hundred thousand, then regroup with ten thousands to get 17 - 9 = 8. Write 8 under ten thousands.
      •  Subtract hundred thousands: 8 - 8 = 0, write 0 under hundred thousands.
      Millions

       Subtract Millions: 2 - 1 = 1, write 1 under millions.  

      Therefore, 2,985,620 litres - 1,899,550 litres = 1,086,070 litres. 

        Study tip

      •   When subtracting large numbers, arrange the numbers in vertical order, placing each digit in its correct place value.
       When subtracting a bigger digit from a smaller one in the same place value, borrow 1 ten (10) from the digit in the next place value to the left. Add it to the smaller digit on your right being subtracted from. This is called regrouping. Then subtract.

        Application 1.8

        Subtract the following:

      1. 6,000,101 – 4,999,011 =

       Study tip 

      • First read and interpret the question correctly.
      • When subtracting whole numbers, arrange the digits in the table according to place values. Make sure the larger number is on top of the smaller number.
      • If numbers do not have the same number of digits, use zeros to act as place holders to ensure proper alignment of each digit according to place values.
      • Start subtracting from the right (ones) as you go to the left side. Make sure you borrow and re-group where you find that the top digit is smaller than the bottom digit.
      •  Words to mean subtraction are; take away, minus, reduce and difference.
      •  To subtract, means to reduce a given number by a certain number. The result of subtraction is called difference.
      When faced with a problem involving both addition and subtraction, always carry out addition first and subtract last.
