Question description

Arnold and his dad have just purchased a new grill for this Saturday's party. But before the cookout, the grill needs to be assembled. Arnold's dad has asked him to organize the nuts, bolts, and screws according to size so that as they begin the assembly, they will be able to locate the needed fasteners quickly. Arnold has started the task, but needs help. Will you take a look at the parts list and help Arnold determine how to put the items in order from least to greatest according to their diameter?

3 Screws  3/32” x 4” long

4 Hex bolts 1.5” x 4” long

1 Screw 7/16” x 3” long

1 Screw 3/4” x 2” long

16 Screws 3/8” x 2” long

6 Hex bolts 3 3/8” x 3” long

 4 Hex bolts 1 7/8” x 4” long

12 Screws 5/64” x 3” long

1 Screw 1/2” x 3” long

1 Hex bolt 2.25” x 2” long

4 Hex bolts 3.75” x 3” long

6 Screws 11/64” x 4” long

4 Screws 1/16” x 3” long

 1. What do you think is the best approach to helping Arnold get organized?


 2. Draw and use a number line to help keep track of the order as you compare sizes.

3. List all items in order of least to greatest so that Arnold knows how to organize the fasteners for the build.
