A word and number arrangement machine when given an input of words and numbers, rearranges them following a particular rule. The following is an illustration of input and rearrangement.

Input: economy on 16 is cool hot begin 14 but new again 24
Step I: begin 14 economy on 16 is cool hot but new again 24
Step II: begin 14 on 16 economy is cool hot but new again 24
Step III: begin 14 on 16 again 24 economy is cool hot but new
Step IV: begin 14 on 16 again 24 new economy is cool hot but
Step V: begin 14 on 16 again 24 new is economy cool hot but
Step VI: begin 14 on 16 again 24 new is hot economy cool but
Step VI is the last step of the rearrangement.

Solutions - Here numerals are fewer than words. First, words combining with numbers get arranged in ascending order of numbers, and then rest of the words are rearranged in reverse alphabetical order in subsequent steps.
Input: Garden heat 36 in 8 below normal in 2 over
Step I: in 2 Garden heat 36 in 8 below normal over
Step II: in 2 in 8 Garden heat 36 below normal over
