For Representing Rational Numbers on a Number Line,
1) We will first check if the given rational number is a negative number or a positive rational number.
2) We conclude that all positive numbers lie on the right and all the negative numbers lie on the left.
Here given number = . This number is a proper fraction(Numerator< Denominator) and it will lie between 0 and -1.
1) To locate this point we will divide the part between zero and -1 in equal parts, equal to the denominator(7) of the fraction and then the mark will be indicated as per the number at the numerator(-3).
we need to divide the portion between 0 and -1 in 7 equal parts and the third mark starting from zero will indicate .
