Here we will learn how to represent decimals, fractions, rational numbers on number line. Representation of rational numbers on number line makes their comparison easier!

We know how to compare two integers or two fractions and tell which is smaller or which is greater among them. Let us now see how we can compare two rational numbers

In this topic we will learn to add and subtract rational numbers with like, unlike and common denominators. Adding and subtracting rational numbers work exactly like fractions that you are already familiar with.

In this topic we will understand multiplication of fractions, like how to multiply a fraction with a whole number, how to multiply a fraction with a fraction, and how to multiply mixed numbers. We will use number line approach to understand this multiplication in a better way. Multiplying rational numbers works identical to how we multiply fractions which you are already familiar with.
