## Video transcript

we're on the fractions on the number line exercise on Khan Academy and they asked us to move the orange dot to three-fourths on the number line change the number of divisions to create tick marks on the number line so let's see what's going on here so I have the space from zero to one on the number line if I want to move it to three-fourths what I would first want to do is divide the space between zero and one into fourths into four equal sections so I would want to have four divisions here and there you have it four divisions I typed in the number four and they have four equal divisions one two three four and so this is going to be a fourth that's another fourth that's another fourth and that's another fourth what we care about is three-fourths so once again that's one fourth this would be another fourth getting us to two fourths and then this would be another fourth getting us to three fourths so there you have it that is three fourths on the number line
