Spearman's rank

Hello everyone!

I had a question about spearman's rank, how do you order the numbers in the table? Do you order them from smallest to biggest or biggest to smallest? I have seen multiple methods but they seem to confuse me quiet a bit. Also, if there are 5 numbers that are the same and they all are supposed to come in third place, do you still put in .5? For example, 4 appears 5 times after the 2nd place, do I insert 3.5 on each number or do I have to correctly divide it? I hope you understand what I mean

Thank you all for your help.
