Description: Sal puts 7/3, -5/2, 0, -2, -12/4, -3.25 in order from least to greatest. What I'd like to do in this video is order these six numbers from least to greatest. So seven thirds, same thing as one, two, and you see, between consecutive integers, we have three spaces, so we are essentially marking off thirds, so two and 1/3, is going to be 1/3 of the way between two and three, so it's going to be right over there, so that is 7/3. Negative five over two, well that's the same thing as the negative of 5/2, and 5/2 is going to be 2/2 plus another 2/2, plus 1/2 so this is two and 1/2, this is one, this is one, and that's 1/2.
