# Order this starting from the smallest: 15.249         15.3         15.05          15.009         15.25

i think it might be easier to understand if i change decimals to fractions, so lets start ;) $15.249=15\frac{249}{1000}$ $15.3=15.300=15\frac{300}{1000}$ $15.05=15.050=15\frac{50}{1000}$ $15.009=15\frac{9}{1000}$ $15.25=15.250=15\frac{250}{1000}$ denominators are the same so now you only have to compare numerators (biger numerator = greater fraction) so: $15\frac{9}{1000}<15\frac{50}{1000}<15\frac{249}{1000}<15\frac{250}{1000}<15\frac{300}{1000}$ it means that: $15.009<15.05<15.249<15.25<5.3$
