# Represent each of the following rational numbers on the number line:

(i) 5 (ii) -3

(iii) (iv) (v) 1.3

(vi) -2.4 (vii)

Answer :

(i) Given number = 5

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number 5 is positive so we are going to locate it on the right side of the zero.

(ii) Given = -3

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number is negative (-3) so we are going to locate it on the left side of the zero.

(iii) Given = 5/7

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number is positive so we are going to locate it on the right side of the zero.

(iv) Given = 8/3

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number is positive so we are going to locate it on the right side of the zero.

(v) Given = 1.3

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number 1.3 is positive so we are going to locate it on the right side of the zero.

(vi) Given = -2.4

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number -2.4 is negative so we are going to locate it on the left side of the zero.

(vii) Given = 23/6

First draw a line and mark the origin Zero. The given number is positive so we are going to locate it on the right side of the zero.
