### Represent ^@ \dfrac { 1 } { 2 }^@ on the number line.

**Answer:**

**Step by Step Explanation:**

- First let us recall the basic rules of representing rational numbers on the number line.
- If the rational number(fraction) is proper then, it lies between ^@0^@ and ^@1^@.
- If the rational number(fraction) is improper then, first convert it into a mixed fraction. The rational number lies between the whole number and next whole number.

- The rational number in the proper form. So, it lies between ^@0^@ and ^@1^@.

Now, let us draw a line. Take a point ^@O^@ on it. Let it represent ^@0^@.

From ^@O^@ set off unit distances ^@OA^@ and ^@OA'^@ to the right and left of ^@O^@ respectively. - As the given rational ^@ \dfrac { 1 } { 2 }^@ is positive. So, we move right from ^@O^@ on the number line.

Let us divide ^@OA^@ into ^@2^@ equal parts. Let ^@OP^@ be the segment showing ^@1^@ parts out of ^@2^@.

The point ^@P^@ represents the rational number ^@\dfrac { 1 } { 2 }^@.
