Arrange `-234`, `423`, `73` in ascending order.

The order is `-234`, `73`, `423`.

Arrange `9`, `873`, `-99` in descending order.

The order is `873`, `9`, `-99`.

Two or more integers can be compared to arrange them in

• ascending order : from the smallest to the largest

• descending order : from the largest to the smallest

*Solved Exercise Problem: *

Arrange the numbers in ascending order `-8`, `-843`, `-84`.

- `-843`, `-84`, `-8`
- `-843`, `-84`, `-8`
- `-8`, `-84`, `-843`

The answer is "`-843`, `-84`, `-8`".

*Solved Exercise Problem: *

Arrange the numbers in descending order `-2`, `7`, `-4`.

- `7`, `-4`, `-2`
- `7`, `-2`, `-4`
- `7`, `-2`, `-4`

The answer is "`7`, `-2`, `-4`"

*Solved Exercise Problem: *

Arrange the numbers in descending order `5`, `-5`, `5`, `-5`.

- `5`, `-5`
- `5`, `5`, `-5`, `-5`
- `5`, `5`, `-5`, `-5`

The answer is "`5`, `5`, `-5`, `-5`"

*Solved Exercise Problem: *

Arrange the numbers in ascending order `-2`, `0`, `4`.

- `-2, 0, 4`
