The fraction number line (its more sophisticated name is "Rational Number Line") looks like an ordinary straight line, but each submicroscopic point on the line represents a number which can be represented as a fraction of two integers. The number "zero" stands at the center of the line, and there are an infinite number of points in the line. No matter how close together two fractions are, there are an infinite number of fractions between them. A number line is a strictly theoretical concept. It really isn't possible to draw more than an extremely limited example of a number line, since there is no limit to the number of points on a number line. Here's a very primitive fraction number line, showing only halves: -7/2 ... -3 ... -5/2 ... -2 ... -3/2 ... -1 ... -1/2 ... 0 ... 1/2 ... 1 ... 3/2 ... 2 ... 5/2 ... 3 ... 7/2 And an only slightly more intricate line showing only sevenths: -6/7 ... -5/7 ... -4/7 ... -3/7 ... -2/7 ... -1/7 ... 0 ... 1/7 ... 2/7 ... 3/7 ... 4/7 ... 5/7 ... 6/7

+7 and -7.

The number above the line in a fraction is called the numerator. The number below the line is called the denominator. So in the fraction 5/7 5 is the numerator and 7 is the denominator.

No it isn't. 8 would be between the other two numbers.

The number would be 7.9 on a number line. What you can do to find this number is go to the spot on the number line that says 7 and 8. Cut the number line between 7 and 8 into 10 pieces. Then count to the ninth peice and this is 7.9

Lets say your number us 6 7/12. Make a number line like so |-----------------------------|---------|----------------| 0----------------------------6--------7----------------10 Measure between 6 and 7 and make 12 equal sections out of it. |-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-| 6----------------------7 And on the 7th line from 6, it would equal 6 7/12!

6/7 is less than one on the number line.

Multiply whatever number is on line 7 by 9.

To visualise √7 on a number line you'd have to approximate it - √7 is in exact (surd) form as it is not a whole number. The approximation or decimal form of √7 is roughly 2.65. Or if you prefer, 2.6457513110645905905016157536393. So on a number line, place it between 2 and 3.
