Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given Information.

Information given in the question:

925,17%,0.22,950

Step 2. Calculation.

Consider the numbers given:

925,17%,0.22,950

Write each number in decimal form.

Convert 925 into decimal by dividing 9by25.

250.369.0075¯150150¯0

925=0.36

Step 3. Further simplify.

Convert 17% into decimal.

17%=17100[p%=p100]=0.17

Then, convert 950

500.189.0050¯400400¯0

950=0.18

Therefore,

0.36,0.17,0.22,0.18

Arrange the decimals from least to greatest.

0.17,0.18,0.22,0.36

Write the numbers in their original form as given in the question.

17%,950,0.22,925

Represent the numbers on the number line from least to greatest.

Step 4. Conclusion.

The given numbers have been arranged from least to greatest on the number line shown below.
