-4.5, 1.75, $\sqrt 4$, $14^1$

Work Step by Step

Mental math tells us that the only negative number, -4.5, is the smallest. Mental math also tells us that $14^1$, which equals 14, is the largest. Convert $\sqrt 4$ to a decimal to compare against 1.75. $\sqrt 4=2$ $1.75\lt2$. Therefore $1.75\lt\sqrt 4$.
