Fraction on Number Line
Division – Graphic Representation
Let us represent the fractions on a number line.
Draw a line and mark two points O and A and to represent the value 0 and 1.
To mark 1/2 on the number line divide the gap between O and A into two equal parts. Let T be the point of division. Then, point T represents 1/2.
To mark 3/5 on a number line, divide the gap between 0 and 1 into 5 equal parts and take first 3 parts from 0 as shown below.
