    Hi,

    I am writing my thesis, and I need to explain how I’ve organized the results.
    Can somebody help me to translate the following?

    Las muestras se han ordenado de mayor a menor porcentaje de contenido de humedad.

    Samples are ordered from more to less percentage of moisture content.
    Samples are ordained from more to less percentage of moisture content.
    Samples are arranged from more to less percentage of moisture content.


    También puede aplicarse a algo más simple:

    Los números están ordenados de mayor a menor.
    Numbers are ordered/ordained/arranged from more to less.


    Me gustaría solucionar las dos dudas. Gracias

    Samples are listed/arranged in descending order of moisture content (as a percentage).

    (En todo caso, sería "greater to lesser".)
