Placing Fractions on a Number Line?

Answer

Fractions on a number line are placed in between the numbers they fall. IF you number line is numbered -10 through 10 and your fraction is 9/5, the fraction would fall in the middle of 4 and 5. To figure this out, divide the numerator by the denominator. You will get 4.5 because 9/5= 4.5. Last, we also know 4.5 is in the middle of 4 and 5, so we place the point between these two numbers.
