Question description

My teacher gave us a few homework questions regarding on arranging oxidizing agents on their strengths. I can tell if it's strong or weak if it's on a table... However, there's a question where we have to arrange it based on the voltage it produced??

For example: 

Reduction reaction        Oxidation reaction        Resulting voltage 
Cu+2 + e- --> Cu+         Pb ---> Pb+2 + 2e-       0.11V 
Cu+2 + e- --> Cu+         Ni ---> Ni+2 + 2e-         0.05V 
Cu+2 + e- --> Cu+         Fe ---> Fe+2 + 2e-       0.09V 

Can someone explain to me how to do it?? Thank you!
