Fractional Numbers are represented on the number line and number is which is closest to 0 is circled is shown in the above figure .

\(\frac{11}{8}\) < \(\frac{7}{4}\)

Question 6.

JoAnn and Lupe live straight down the street from their school. JoAnn walks \(\frac{5}{6}\) miles and Lupe walks \(\frac{7}{8}\) miles home from school every day. Draw a number line to model how far each girl walks. Who walks the least? Explain how you know using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Distance from Joann Home to School = \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Distance from Lupe home to School = \(\frac{7}{8}\)

\(\frac{7}{8}\) is greater than \(\frac{5}{6}\)

so, \(\frac{5}{6}\) is lesser than \(\frac{7}{8}\) .

Question 7.

Cheryl cuts 2 pieces of thread. The blue thread is \(\frac{5}{4}\) meters long. The red thread is \(\frac{4}{5}\) meters long. Draw a number line to model the length of each piece of thread. Which piece of thread is shorter? Explain how you know using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Length of Blue Thread = \(\frac{5}{4}\)

Length of Red Thread = \(\frac{4}{5}\)

\(\frac{5}{4}\) > \(\frac{4}{5}\)

Red Thread is shorter thread . as shown in above figure.

Question 8.

Brandon makes homemade spaghetti. He measures 3 noodles. One measures \(\frac{7}{8}\) feet, the second is \(\frac{7}{4}\) feet, and the third is \(\frac{4}{2}\) feet long. Draw a number line to model the length of each piece of spaghetti. Write a number sentence using <, >, or = to compare the pieces. Explain using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Length of 1st Noodle = \(\frac{7}{8}\) feet.

Length of 2nd Noodle = \(\frac{7}{4}\) feet.

Length of 3rd Noodle = \(\frac{4}{2}\) feet = 2 .

3 noodles are reprsented in the number line and a vertical Line is drawn from the longest Noodle to compare the shortest noodles as shown in above figure .

\(\frac{7}{8}\) < \(\frac{7}{4}\) < \(\frac{4}{2}\) .

Place the two fractions on the number line. Circle the fraction with the distance closest to 0. Then, compare using >, <, or =.

Question 1.

Answer:

Explanation :

Number line is divided into 5 parts as the denominator of the numbers is 5 .

Fractional Numbers are represented on the number line and number is which is closest to 0 is circled is shown in the above figure .

\(\frac{3}{5}\) > \(\frac{1}{5}\)

Question 2.

Answer:

Explanation :

Number line is divided into 4 parts as the denominator of the numbers is 4 .

Fractional Numbers are represented on the number line and number is which is closest to 0 is circled is shown in the above figure .

\(\frac{1}{2}\) < \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Question 3.

Mr. Brady draws a fraction on the board. Ken says it’s \(\frac{2}{3}\), and Dan said it’s \(\frac{3}{2}\). Do both of these fractions mean the same thing? If not, which fraction is larger? Draw a number line to model \(\frac{2}{3}\) and \(\frac{3}{2}\). Use words, pictures, and numbers to explain your comparison.

Answer:

Explanation :

Fraction said by ken = \(\frac{2}{3}\),

Fraction said by Dan = \(\frac{3}{2}\)

Both the fractions are represented with different number lines and from the greater number a vertical line is drawn to show the numbers which are least as shown in above figure .

\(\frac{8}{6}\) < \(\frac{5}{3}\)

Question 6.

Liz and Jay each have a piece of string. Liz’s string is \(\frac{4}{6}\) yards long, and Jay’s string is \(\frac{5}{7}\) yards long. Whose string is longer? Draw a number line to model the length of both strings. Explain the comparison using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Length of Liz’s string = \(\frac{4}{6}\)

Length of Jay’s string = \(\frac{5}{7}\)

From the above figure we notice that \(\frac{5}{7}\) is greater than \(\frac{4}{6}\)

Question 7.

In a long jump competition, Wendy jumped \(\frac{9}{10}\) meters, and Judy jumped \(\frac{10}{9}\) meters. Draw a number line to model the distance of each girl’s long jump. Who jumped the shorter distance? Explain how you know using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Distance covered by Wendy in long jump = \(\frac{9}{10}\)

Distance covered by Judy in long jump = \(\frac{10}{9}\)

From the above figure we notice that \(\frac{10}{9}\) is greater than \(\frac{9}{10}\)

Wendy jumped shorter distance .

Question 8.

Nikki has 3 pieces of yarn. The first piece is \(\frac{5}{6}\) feet long, the second piece is \(\frac{5}{3}\) feet long, and the third piece is \(\frac{3}{2}\) feet long. She wants to arrange them from the shortest to the longest. Draw a number line to model the length of each piece of yarn. Write a number sentence using <, >, or = to compare the pieces. Explain using pictures, numbers, and words.

Answer:

Explanation :

Length of First piece = \(\frac{5}{6}\)

Length of second piece = \(\frac{5}{3}\)

Length of third piece = \(\frac{3}{2}\)

3 Yarns are represented in number lines as shown in above figure .

\(\frac{5}{3}\) > \(\frac{3}{2}\) > \(\frac{5}{6}\) .
