15.009 15.05 15.249 15.25 15.3 I believe is the correct order

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