Ascending and Descending order For Class Third
Forming Smallest and Greatest Numbers
1. let us take digits -5, 3, 2 and 9.
to get the smallest number, we arrange the digits in ascending order as 2, 3, 5 and 9. So, the smallest number is 2359.
To get the greatest number, we arrange the digits in descending order as 9, 5, 3, and 2. So, the greatest number is 9532.
2. Let us take digits -4, 1, 0 and 7.
Arranging the digits in ascending order, we got 0, 1, 4 and 7.
Thus the smallest number is 0147.
But this is not a 4-digit number.
So, rearranging the digits, we get the smallest number is 1047.
Arranging the digits is descending order, we get 7, 4, 1, and 0.
So, the greatest number is 7410.
Remember also
Here is the important to understand that 0 at the beginning has no value. we put 0 at second place from extreme left to form the smallest number.
Example of Ascending and Descending Order
let Us take Numbers 2136, 4136, 3136 and 6136.

Comparing The Numbers, we write
2136 < 3136 < 4136 < 6136
In Ascending order : 2136, 3136, 4136, 6136
In Descending order: 6136, 4136, 3136, 2136
