### Solved Questions of Ascending and Descending Order of Decimals

1. A company sells four different products with different profit margins. The profit margins are 18.7, 12.5, 15.8, and 22.3. If we arrange the products in ascending order of profit margin. Which profit margin will come in the first position from the left?
