Descending order of Numbers

 Ascending order of Numbers Descending order of Numbers

Definition
By Descending Order, we mean the arrangement of whole numbers from the largest to smallest.

We can also say that in Descending Order, the largest whole number comes first and the smallest whole number comes in the last.

Following examples further illustrate Descending Order of Whole Numbers

Example 1 = Arrange the following series of whole numbers in descending order.
87, 57, 29 ,70, 15, 35, 90

Answer = In the above given series of whole number,
The Largest Whole Number is 90, so put it in First Place in the order.

Now, 87 is smaller than 90; but larger than rest of the whole numbers of the given series, so put it in Second Place in the order.

Similarly, put 70 in Third Place,
57 in Fourth Place,
35 in Fifth Place,
29 in Sixth Place
and 15 in The Last as it is The Smallest Whole Number of the given series.

Finally, The Descending Order of the given series of Whole Numbers = 90, 87, 70, 57, 35, 29, 15

Example 2 = Arrange the following series whole numbers in descending order.
50, 45, 71, 48, 79, 55

Answer = In the above given series of whole numbers,

The Largest Whole Number is 79, so put it in First Place in the order.

Now, 71 is smaller than 79; but larger than rest of the whole numbers of the given series, so put it in Second Place in the order.

Similarly, put 55 in Third Place,
50 in Fourth Place,
48 in Fifth Place,
and 45 in The Last as it is The Smallest Whole Number of the given series.

Finally, The Descending Order of the given series of Whole Numbers = 79, 71, 55, 50, 48, 45.
