To order the numbers from least to greatest, we first convert any fractions to decimal form:

- ( -\frac{2}{3} = -0.666... )
- ( \frac{3}{2} = 1.5 )
- ( -\frac{5}{2} = -2.5 )

Now, we can arrange the numbers:

- ( -2/3 )
- ( -0.5 )
- ( 1.6 )
- ( 1.5 )
- ( -2.5 )

So, the numbers in ascending order are: ( -\frac{2}{3} ), ( -0.5 ), ( 1.6 ), ( 1.5 ), ( -2.5 ).
