What is the correct ascending order for the following numbers? 15,32,5,27,10
A.
5, 10, 15, 27, 32
B.
10, 5, 15, 27, 32
C.
5, 15, 10, 27, 32
D.
15, 10, 27, 32, 5
Correct Answer
A. 5, 10, 15, 27, 32
Explanation Ascending order arranges numbers from the smallest to the largest. To order the numbers 15, 32, 5, 27, and 10 correctly, you begin by identifying the smallest number, which is 5. Then, you sequentially find the next smallest numbers, resulting in the order of 10, 15, 27, and finally, 32, which is the largest number in this sequence. This method ensures that each number is listed in increasing magnitude, making option A (5, 10, 15, 27, 32) the correct sequence in the multiple-choice question provided. This systematic approach is essential for organizing data clearly and is commonly used in mathematical operations and data analysis.

A.
60
B.
80
C.
40
D.
120
Correct Answer
B. 80
Explanation The sum of 20 + 20 + 20 + 10 + 10 is 80.
You can calculate this sum by adding each number individually:
20 + 20 + 20 = 60
60 + 10 = 70
70 + 10 = 80
Therefore, the total sum of 20 + 20 + 20 + 10 + 10 is 80.
