#### Question 4:

Draw the number line and represent the following rational numbers on it:

(i) (ii)

(iii) (iv)

#### Answer:

(i)

This fraction represents 3 parts out of 4 equal parts. Therefore, each space between two integers on number line must be divided into 4 equal parts.

can be represented as

(ii)

This fraction represents 5 parts out of 8 equal parts. Negative sign represents that it is on the negative side of number line. Therefore, each space between two integers on number line must be divided into 8 equal parts.

can be represented as

(iii)

This fraction represents 1 full part and 3 parts out of 4 equal parts. Negative sign represents that it is on the negative side of number line. Therefore, each space between two integers on number line must be divided into 4 equal parts.

can be represented as

(iv)

This fraction represents 7 parts out of 8 equal parts. Therefore, each space between two integers on number line must be divided into 8 equal parts.
