To help you better understand the concept of Representing Rational Numbers on the Number Line we have taken a few examples. Check out the detailed explanation provided and understand the concept better. After going through this article, you will learn how to solve related problems on your own.
In general, Positive Rational Numbers are always represented on the right of the 0 on the number line. Negative Rational Numbers are represented to the left of 0 on the number line.
Solved Examples on Rational Numbers on the Number Line
1. Represent 1/8 and 3/8 on the Number Line?
Firstly, draw the number line mark 0 on it. Split the number line into 8 equal parts and then mark the first division to the right i.e. 1/8. The Second division is 2/8 and the third division is 3/8. The fourth division is 4/8 and so on.
2. Write the rational number for each point labeled with a letter below?
We know the positive rational numbers are represented to the right of 0. As all of the rational numbers given are successive. Therefore the Rational Numbers Labelled with Letters A, B, C, D, E are 1/5, 4/5, 5/5, 8/5, 9/5.
Thus, All the Rational Numbers 0/5, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 5/5, 6/5, 7/5, 8/5, 9/5, 10/5, 11/5, 12/5 will be adjacent to each other on the Number Line.
