The given figure shows a number line. What is the value of A?
Step by Step Explanation:
- We can see that the given number line is divided into 5 equal parts and each part is represented by some fractional value.
We find that the numerator increases as the number of parts increase.
- Let us find the fractional form of each part.
Part 1 = ⅕ which means 1 part out of 5 equal parts.
Part 2 = ⅖ which means 2 parts out of 5 equal parts.
Part 3 = ⅗ which means 3 parts out of 5 equal parts.
Part 4 = ⅘ which means 4 parts out of 5 equal parts.
Part 5 =
(1) which means 5 parts out of 5 equal parts
We find that ‘A’ represents 2 parts out of 5.
So, we can write it in the fractional form as ⅖.Thus, the value of ‘A’ is ⅖.
