    I'd start by looking at the number before the decimal place and putting them in order from smallest to biggest. Then, look at the first number after the decimal place and put them in size order (so, 0 before 1, 1 before 2 etc.) and then do the same for the third. These should then come out in ascending order!

    You can do the same for the B) list as well. Would you like to give it a try, and then we can all help you out?
