# Ascending and Descending order

## Ascending and Descending order

**Ascending order**

**When we arrange the data from smallest to greatest, order it is called Ascending order. **

Example- 5, 12, 26, 38, 45.

In this example we see that 5 is less then 12,

12 is less then 26, 26 is less then 38,and 38

is less then 45,

Here we arrange the data smallest to greatest order.

So first we take 5, then we take 12, after 12

we select 26 after 26 we select 38.

45 is greatest data in given data so we take

45 is the last of the series.

Descending order

**When we arrange the data from greatest smallest, order it is called Descending order. **

Example- 45, 38, 26, 12, 5.

In this example we see that 45 is bigger then

38, 38 is bigger then 26, 26 is bigger then

12, and 12 is bigger then 5,

Here we arrange the data greatest to

smallest order.

So first we take 45, then we take 38, after 38

we select 26 after 26 we select 12.

5 is smallest data in given data so we take

5 is the last of the series.
