## FAQs on Examples: Representing Decimals on Number Line Video Lecture - Mathematics (Maths) Class 6

 1. Can you provide an example of representing a decimal on a number line?
Ans. Sure! Let's say we want to represent the decimal 0.5 on a number line. We can mark 0 as the starting point and then divide the space between 0 and 1 into 10 equal parts. Since 0.5 is halfway between 0 and 1, we would mark it exactly in the middle of these two points on the number line.
 2. How do we represent decimals less than 0 on a number line?
Ans. To represent decimals less than 0 on a number line, we start by marking 0 as the starting point. Then, we divide the space to the left of 0 into equal parts. For example, if we want to represent -0.7, we can divide the space into 10 equal parts and mark -0.7 seven-tenths of the way from 0 towards the left.
 3. What is the importance of representing decimals on a number line?
Ans. Representing decimals on a number line helps us visualize their relative positions and understand their magnitudes. It allows us to compare decimals and identify their relationships, such as which decimals are greater or smaller. The number line is a useful tool for understanding the concept of decimals and their values.
 4. How can we represent decimal numbers with more than one decimal place on a number line?
Ans. When representing decimal numbers with more than one decimal place on a number line, we follow a similar approach as before. We mark the whole number part on the number line and then divide the remaining space into equal parts based on the place value of the decimal. For example, to represent 3.75, we mark 3 on the number line and divide the space between 3 and 4 into 10 equal parts. Then, we mark 7 tenths of the way towards 4 and 5 hundredths of the way towards 7.
 5. Can you explain how to represent a repeating decimal on a number line?
Ans. Representing a repeating decimal on a number line requires understanding its pattern. Let's take the example of 0.3333... (where the 3s repeat infinitely). We can start by marking 0 on the number line and then divide the space between 0 and 1 into 10 equal parts. Since the decimal repeats the digit 3, we mark 0.3 on the first tenth and 0.33 on the second tenth. Continuing this pattern, we can keep marking the repeating digits on the corresponding parts of the number line.
