largest in measure the three trees shown in the figure. The pine tree oak tree and the palm tree. The largest among them is placed first position as pine. Then the rest are compared and largest among them is placed in second position as palm. Third position is taken by the last oak tree. Thus, the trees can be ordered from largest to smallest.

Considering the problem : arranging trees from largest to smallest. descending order The order is Pine, Palm, and Oak. The numbers (in this example, representing the height of trees) can be arranged from largest to smallest. This order is called descending order.

largest in measure The trees are ordered from smallest to largest. The smallest among them is placed first position as oak. Then the rest are compared and smallest among them is placed in second position as palm. Third position is taken by the last palm tree. Thus, the trees are ordered from smallest to largest.

Considering the problem : arranging trees from smallest to largest.ascending order The order is Oak, Palm, and Pine. The numbers (in this example, representing the height of trees) can be arranged from smallest to largest. This order is called ascending order.
