Example 9 Find three rational numbers between (1 )/4 and 1/2.
Three rational number between 1/4 & 1/2
Step 1: Make denominator same
1/4 =1/4
and 1/2 × 2/2=2/4
Step 2: Since we need to find 3 rational numbers,
we multiply and divide by 4.
1/4 × 4/4 = 4/16
2/4 × 4/4 = 8/16
∴ Three rational number are 𝟓/𝟏𝟔, 𝟔/𝟏𝟔, 𝟕/𝟏𝟔
