#### Work Step by Step

Given the numbers $7, 6, 2$ we will use each digit at least one time to write the smallest five-digit number possible. The smallest digit is $2$. We will place the smallest digit ($2$) in the largest valued column (ten-thousands). Next, we will place the smallest digit ($2$) in the second largest valued column (thousands). Next, we will place the smallest digit ($2$) in the third largest valued column (hundreds). Next we will place the second smallest digit ($6$) in the fourth largest valued column (tens). Finally, we will place the third smallest digit ($7$) in the fifth largest valued column (ones). $22267$ Separate each group of three digits with a comma. $22,267$
