### Which Dewey number comes first?

• A.

311.126

• B.

311.116

• C.

311.07

• D.

311.094

C. 311.07
Explanation
The Dewey decimal system is used to classify books and other materials in libraries. In this system, the numbers are organized in a hierarchical manner. The first part of the number represents the general subject area, while the following numbers provide more specific information. In this case, the numbers 311.126, 311.116, 311.07, and 311.094 are given. To determine which number comes first, we need to compare the numbers digit by digit from left to right. The first digit is the same for all the numbers, so we move to the second digit. The number 311.07 has a 0 in the second digit, which is smaller than the 1 in the second digit of the other numbers. Therefore, 311.07 comes first.

### The first thing I should do when I have been given some books that need to be put away is...

• A.

Put them in alphabetical order

• B.

Sort them according to what section of the library they go in

• C.

B. Sort them according to what section of the library they go in
Explanation
When given books that need to be put away, the first thing to do is to sort them according to what section of the library they belong to. This ensures that the books are organized and placed in their designated areas, making it easier for people to find them later. Alphabetical order may be useful within each section, but determining the section takes priority. Asking another student for help is not mentioned as the first step, so it is not the correct answer.
