Doctor, I'm Sick...


People make visits to doctors for many reasons. For example, listed alphabetically, consider these five standard symptoms:

  • Back problems
  • Knee problems
  • Stomach problems
  • Throat problems
  • Vision problems
Your Task: Order the symptoms from 1 to 5 as being the most common reason for a visit to a doctor.

Though it may not be any help, below are the respective number of visits (when symptoms are arranged in correct order):

  1. 23,314,000 visits
  2. 15,501,000 visits
  3. 15,023,000 visits
  4. 13,568,000 visits
