There is a mistake in enotechcris' answer.

When you look at decimals, think about what they are worth. The farther you go the right of the decimal place, the smaller the amount.

. ________ ___________ _____________ ______________

---tenths------hundredths----thousandths-----ten-thousandths

Now think about that.

If you take one whole and cut it into 10 pieces, each one is a tenth, or .1

If you take that same whole and cut it into 100 pieces, each one is a hundredth, or .01 -- which is alot smaller than a tenth.

etc.

.007 is 7 thousandths

.00060 is 6 ten-thousandths -- way smaller than .007

NOTE that the last zero, to the right of the 6, doesn't make any difference. It's just like the first 0 in the whole number 01,234 doesn't make any difference.

.0003 is 3 ten-thousandths - which is actually the SMALLEST one -- it's very close to .0006, but 3 of these tiny pieces is less than 6 of them.

.048 would be read as 48 thousandths, which is alot more than 7 thousandths.

SO, the correct answer, in order from smallest to largest, is:

.0003

.00060

.007

.048

We need to order the decimals .007 .00060 .0003 and .048 from least to greatest.

The farther right you go out in a number, the smaller it becomes. There fore .0003 is the smallest, .00060 is next largest (the trailing 0 does not matter), .007 is next largest, and finally .048 is the largest.

Order the decimals .007 .00060 .0003 and .048 least to greatest.

Where there are the most number of 0s after a decimal, that is when it is smaller

Therefore .0003, .00060, .007, .048 but since there is 3 0s in 2 number find which number is higher which in this case is 6 and you have your smallest to largest
