Answer

$-2, -\frac{7}{4}, \frac{1}{2}, \sqrt 5, 2.4$

Work Step by Step

Restate each number as a decimal to compare. $\frac{1}{2}\ \ \ \ =\ \ \ 0.5$ $-2\ \ =-2$ $\sqrt 5\ \ =\ \ \ 2.236$ $-\frac{7}{4}\ \ =-1.75$ $2.4\ \ = \ \ \ \ \ 2.4$ Reorder from least to greatest. $-2\ \ =-2$ $-\frac{7}{4}\ \ =-1.75$ $\frac{1}{2}\ \ \ \ =\ \ \ 0.5$ $\sqrt 5\ \ =\ \ \ 2.236$ $2.4\ \ = \ \ \ \ \ 2.4$
