# Ascending And Descending Numbers

A number can be taken as a mathematical object which we generally use for counting and measurement purposes in different areas. Numbers are taken as input in different procedures of mathematical operations and their output produced on the other side is also a number.

Numbers are classified into many Sets called number system. Some of the common Types of Numbers are Natural Numbers, whole numbers, integer, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers, even numbers, odd Numbers, prime numbers and composite numbers. All these numbers can be arranged either in increasing order or in decreasing order.

The order of numbers arranged in which numbers are in increasing arrangement is known as ascending order and order of numbers in which numbers are in decreasing arrangement then order of number is known as descending order.

In other words if numbers are arranged from lowest to greatest number then order is known as ascending order. The order of numbers from greatest to the lowest number is known as descending order of numbers. The ascending and Descending Numbers can be further explained by an example:

Example:
Arrange the numbers 63, 42, 73, 16, 44, 35 in ascending and descending order.

63 = 6 * 6 * 6 = 216
42 = 4 * 4 = 16
73 = 7 * 7 * 7 = 343
16 = 1 * 1 * 1 * 1 * 1 * 1 = 1
44 = 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 = 256
35 = 3 * 3 * 3 * 3 * 3 = 243

216, 16, 343, 1, 256, 243

Then according to the definition of ascending order and descending order we can write these number as,
Ascending order: 1, 16, 216, 243, 256, 343
Descending order: 343, 256, 243, 216, 16, 1

This is how we can arrange numbers in different ways.
