-1$\frac{4}{5}$, -$\frac{7}{8}$, -$\frac{13}{16}$, $\frac{7}{4}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{7}{4}$ is the largest number since it is the only positive number in the set. -1$\frac{4}{5}$, is the smallest number since you are moving into the negative with more than 1 whole number. The last two fractions are negative numbers but less than 1 whole. To put these last two numbers in order you must make the denominators the same to compare. -$\frac{7}{8}$ X $\frac{2}{2}$, becomes -$\frac{14}{16}$. -$\frac{14}{16}$ is a smaller number than -$\frac{13}{16}$ since these are negative fractions.
