METHOD 3:

Let us learn arranging the given series of numbers 4,1,3 in descending order. i.e. from greatest to least.


Step 1:

Write down the given numbers.


descending-order

Step 2:

The first largest number is 4. So, 4 will come first in the order.


descending-order

Step 3:

The next largest number is 3 and it is present in the given series 4,3,1. So, include ‘3’.



Step 4:

2 is the next largest number. But it is not present in the given order 4,1,3. So, omit ‘2’.


descending-order

Step 5:

The next largest number is 1 and it is present in the given order 4,1,3. So, include ’1’.


descending-order

Now, arranging in descending order (from greatest to least) i.e. 4,3,1.i.e,


4 > 3 > 1

If you want to arrange numbers in descending order, then you should always pick the greatest number first.
