-17, 1.4, $\frac{8}{5}$, $10^2$

Work Step by Step

Mental math tells us that the only negative number, -17, is the smallest. Mental math also tells us that $10^2$, which equals 100, is the largest. Convert $\frac{8}{5}$ to a decimal in order to compare against 1.4. $\frac{8}{5}=1\frac{3}{5}=1\frac{6}{10}=1.6$ $1.4\lt\frac{8}{5}$
