# Consider the Following Numeric Values

## Comparing Binary and Decimal Values

**Binary 1011**,

**binary 1101**,

**decimal 5**, and

**decimal 12**are the values we need to compare from least to greatest.

We need to convert them to the same base before making comparisons. In this case, we converted the Binary values to their decimal equivalents for easier comparison.

We need to first understand the values of binary and decimal numbers. Binary is a base 2 numbering system, meaning it only uses two digits (0 and 1) to represent any number. Decimal, on the other hand, is a base 10 numbering system, meaning it uses ten digits (0 through 9) to represent any number.

Now, let's compare the given values. Binary 1011 represents the decimal value 11. Binary 1101 represents the decimal value 13. Decimal 5 is the same in both numbering systems, and decimal 12 is larger than both binary 1011 and decimal 5 but smaller than binary 1101.

Therefore, the correct order from least to greatest is: **decimal 5**, **binary 1011**, **decimal 12**, **binary 1101**.

It's important to note that when comparing numbers with different bases, we need to convert them to the same base before making comparisons. In this case, we converted the binary values to their decimal equivalents for easier comparison.

Which of the following lists the values in order from least to greatest?

The correct order from least to greatest is: decimal 5, binary 1011, decimal 12, binary 1101.
