# Order Two-Digit Numbers from Greatest to Least

Welcome to the quiz! In this activity, you’ll be arranging two-digit numbers from the **greatest** to the **least**. It’s time to put your number skills to the test and see how well you can spot the biggest and smallest numbers.

## How to Order Numbers

When we order numbers from greatest to least, we start with the biggest number and move to the smallest. Here’s what to do:

- First, look at the
**tens place**of each number. The number with the highest tens digit will be the greatest. - If two numbers have the same tens digit, compare the
**ones place**to decide which number is bigger.

### Example:

Let’s order these numbers: **78, 54, 89, 67**.

- First, compare the tens digits: 7, 5, 8, and 6. The highest tens digit is 8, so 89 is the greatest number.
- Next, compare the remaining numbers: 7, 5, and 6. The highest tens digit is 7, so 78 comes next.
- Then, compare 5 and 6. Since 6 is higher, 67 comes next, followed by 54 as the smallest number.
- So, the order from greatest to least is:
**89, 78, 67, 54**.
