As the denominator increases the fraction will be smaller but there is no limit to how tiny that fraction can be. So between any two numbers on the number line, you can have an infinite number of fractions.

these terms are used to describe fractions. the numerator is the number ABOVE the line. and the denominator is the number BELOW the line.

All fractions can be labelled on a number line.

You draw each of the fractions on the number line, and see which one is more to the right, i.e., greater. Please note that plotting the exact position of fractions this way is a bit imprecise - it is more exact to convert the fractions to a common denominator.

Because some decimal numbers can't be converted into fractions if they are irrational numbers.

fractions are represented in form of decimals

A line plot can be made using fractions. Just use fractions rather than whole numbers or other data to mark the scales of the horizontal axis and vertical axis

To order fractions and decimals, you can either write them all in the same form and then compare them, or place them on a number line. Recall that numbers increase in value as you move from left to right along a number line.

Integers are positive and/or negative numbers. Fractions are not integers because they are not originally positive or negative. However, they can both be put on a number line and be considered an integer. Fractions aren't integers unless put on a number line. Integers don't have to be on a number line to be considered an integer.
