Parth (parthkohli):

Convert into numerals. 1500, \(1 \over 1.4\), 2000, \(1 \over 1400\) Sort now.

Parth (parthkohli):

1/1400 is the least, then is 1/1.4....I bet now you can do

OpenStudy (anonymous):

when you have a really large number in the denominator, then it means the number is really really small..

Parth (parthkohli):

OpenStudy (anonymous):

1500 is less than 2000

Parth (parthkohli):

Yep
