Step 1: Draw a number line of a suitable length.

Step 2: If the given fraction is a proper fraction, then mark points 0 and 1 on the number line. Or, if it is an improper fraction, then first convert it into a mixed fraction, and then mark two integers between those the given fraction lies. For example, to represent 3/2 or

1

1

2

, mark points 1 and 2 on the number line.

Step 3: Draw an equal number of parts of the numbers marked in step 2 which will be equal to the denominator of the fraction.

Step 4: Starting from the left point, count forward the number of parts shown by the numerator.

Step 5: Mark the point on the line.
