**NCERT maths class 8 chapter 1 (Exercise 1.2) **

1. Represent these numbers on the number line. (i) (ii)

**Sol. (i)** To represent the number line may be divided into four equal parts as shown fig 1. We use the number

**(ii) ** To represent the number line may be divided into six equal parts as shown fig 2. We use the number

2. Represent on the number line.

**Sol. **Point A is

3. Write five rational numbers which are smaller than 2.

Sol. Five rational numbers smaller than 2 are

4. Find ten rational numbers between .

Sol. We first convert

and

Thus we have between

You can take any ten of these. In fact , you get countless rational numbers between any two given rational numbers.

5. Find five rational numbers between (i) (ii)

**Sol. (i)**

Thus we have

You can take any five of these.

**(ii) ** can be written as

Thus we have between

**and .**

You can take any five of these.

**(iii) **

**can be written as and**

Thus we have

6. Write five rational numbers greater than –2.

Sol. The five rational numbers greater than -2 are .

7. Find ten rational numbers between

Sol. We first convert to rational numbers with the same denominators.

Thus we have

You can take any ten of these. In fact , you get countless rational numbers between any two given rational numbers.
