U can arrange the numbers which is largest in first and keep on decreasing the value of numbers till it ends
but the numbers are rational numbers??

So you want help for arranging numbers in descending order i can help u ok
if there are four numbers like 5,6,7,8
so you should know that descending means from top to low so arrange it in a simple way like i am going to arrange
descending order in these numbers 8>7>6>5
okk if you want the formula for rational numbers tell me in comment box okk
but it's rational numbers?
ok then i am going to modify the answer
-5\6, -7\12, -13\18, 23\24???
If the no. are rationalized no problem, u can find the LCM of the denominators & arra -nge the no. in descending order by seeing the numerator.For example you gave the numbers,-5/6,-7/12,-13/18,23/24, find the LCM of the denominators 6,12,18 and 24. You will get 72. thus the numbers are, -60/72, -42/72, -52/72 and 69/72.
69/70 > -42/72 > -52/72 > -60/72 are the numbers in descending order.
