$5.73, 1/4, -0.06, -3\sqrt 3, -17$

Work Step by Step

For this answer, it is easiest to convert all terms to decimals in order to compare them. These are the following as decimals, in their original order: $-17 = -17.00 -0.06 = -0.06 -3\sqrt 3 = -5.196, 5.73, \frac{1}{4}=0.25$ (I found the decimal using calculator) Then you order them from greatest to least, in their forms of comparable decimals. The larger positive numbers are the greatest, and the larger negative numbers are the least (consistent with graphing these numbers on a number line): $5.73, 0.25, -0.06, -5.196, -17.00.$ Then you make sure that all numbers are presented in their original form: $5.73, 1/4, -0.06, -3\sqrt 3, -17$
