Representing Decimals on the Number Line




Representing Decimals on the number line:

To represent decimals on the number line we have to divide the gap of each number into 10 equal parts as the decimal shows the tenth part of the number.

1) Let us represent 0.6 on a number line.

  • We know that 0.6 is more than zero but less than one.
  • There are 6 tenths init.
  • Divide the unit length between 0 and 1 into 10 equal parts and take 6 parts as shown below:

2) Let us represent 1.7 on a number line.

  • 1.7 is more than 1 but less than 2.

  • Divide each unit length into 10 equal parts. From 1, take 7 parts to the right and we will get 1.7.
