Fraction on Number Line

Division – Graphic Representation

 

Demonstration

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.
