Need help plotting fractions and mixed numbers on a number line ?
In this video I will talk about plotting fractions and mixed numbers on a number line.
Before we get started lets review some rules for fractions on a number line.
The numerator tells you how far away from the whole number you should go.
The denominator of the fraction tells you how many parts to divide the space in between the whole numbers.
Lets go ahead and get started with fractions on a number line.
Lets work some examples.
First we have is 3/4
The denominator tells us how many spaces we need to have between the whole numbers 0 and 1 including the 1.
We have 1 2 3 and 4.
Remember 1 is the same as /4
The numerator tells us how many spaces to move over between the whole numbers.
So 3/4 is plotted here.
Next lets plot 2/3.
We have 1 2 3 because the denominator is 3
We go over 2 because the numerator tells us how many spaces to go over between the whole numbers.
Lets work 2 more.
5/6 tells us we need 6 spaces so we will go 1 2 3 4 5 6
The 1 can be written as 6 over 6
We can go over 5 spaces and here is 5/6
How about if you have a mixed number?
If we have 2 and 3/4
We go to 2 and plot the fraction.
We divide the space into 4 spaces.
We have 1 2 3 4 spaces so 3/4 is plotted here.
