# Fraction on the Number Line:

You have learned to show whole numbers like 0, 1, 2... on a number line.

We can also show fractions on a number line.

1. Let us draw a number line and try to mark 1/4 on it.
2. We know that 1/4 is greater than 0 and less than 1, so it should lie between 0 and 1.
3. Since we have to show 1/4, we divide the gap between 0 and 1 into four equal parts and show 1 part as 1/4.

i) Show 3/5 on a number line.

Since we have to show 3/5, we divide the gap between 0 and 1 into five equal parts and show 1 part as 3/5.

ii) Show 1/10, 0/10, 5/10, and 10/10 on a number line.

#### Example

Show the fractions 2/3, 4/3, 7/3 on the number line.

On the number line below, every unit is divided into 3 equal parts.
