Write the smallest number that can be formed from .
There are 6 digits provided, so we can write a 6-digit number. We can use a place-value chart to form the smallest number. Start with the smallest digit:
Use the smallest digit (1) for the greatest place value (hundred thousands). Use the next smallest digit (2) for the next greatest place value (ten thousands). Continue in this way until you use the greatest digit (8) for the smallest place value (units).
So, the smallest number that can be formed from is 124 578. Notice that the digits in the number are in order from smallest to greatest.
