8, 1. $\frac{1}{3}$, -$\sqrt 2$, -3
To begin ordering numbers in a decreasing manner, start by finding the largest number. 8 is the largest, positive number. Therefore, the sequence should start with 8. Next, look for the second largest number. The second largest, positive number is 1. $\frac{1}{3}$ is slightly less than 1, so it should be placed after 1 in the sequence. Next, order the negative numbers since all of the positive numbers have been ordered. -$\sqrt 2$ is slightly greater than -3, so it should be placed next in the sequence. Lastly, -3 is the smallest number in the given group of numbers, therefore it should be placed last in the sequence.
