Ascending Order: Numbers listed in ascending order are listed from smallest to largest. Decimal: The numbers in the base 10 number system, having one or more places to the right of a decimal point. Denominator: The bottom part of a fraction. Descending Order: Numbers listed in descending order are listed from largest to smallest. Equivalent: Having the same value. Fraction: A number used to name a part of a group or a whole. The number below the bar is the denominator, and the number above the bar is the numerator. Greater Than or Greater Symbols that describe a relationship in which the Than Equal To: expression on the left are greater than the expression on the right. Less Than or Less Symbols that describe a relationship in which the Than Equal To: expression on the left is less than the expression on the right. Numerator: The top part of a fraction. Percent: A ratio that compares a number to 100. Place Value: The use in number systems of the position of a digit in a number to indicate the value of the digit; the same digit in different place-value positions has different meanings. For example, the "3" has a value of 0.003 (three thousandths) in the number 0.1234, but the "3" has a value of 0.3 (three tenths) in the number 0.321. Product: The result of two numbers being multiplied together.
