#### Answers

on the no. line, divide the difference between two consecutive nos. into 3 equal parts.

like ,-1 , , , 0, , , 1, , , 2 and so on

now -8/3 = -2 2/3

so we take the second part between -2 and -3

like let the no. here be x

-3,x, ,-2 , , ,1 and so on

x is -8/3

if you are content the thums up
