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.
