Sum

Observe the number line and answer the questions.

(1) Which number is indicated by point B?

(2) Which point indicates the number 1 3/4 ?

(3) State whether the statement, ‘the point D denotes the number 5/2’ is true or false.

#### Solution

(1) We observe that each unit on the number line is divided into 4 equal parts.
Now, B is the tenth point on the left of 0.
So , B indicates - 10/4 on the number line.

(2) 1 3/4 = 7/4 = 7 xx 1/4
So , the  seventh point on the right of 0 is C that indicates 1 3/4 on the number line.

(3) The point D is the tenth point on the right of 0. So, D indicates 10/4 on the number line.

Now , 10/4 = 5/2

So , D denotes 5/2 on the number line . Hence , the given statement is true .
