For numbers with 1 decimal point like

    4.2

 

We draw it in the number line

Now,

  4.2 > 4

&       4.2 > 5

 

So, we draw number line from 4 to 5

We divide number line between 4 & 5 in 10 equal parts

Draw 28.7 on number line

 

Now,

  28.7 > 28

&  28.7 < 29

 

So, 28.7 lies between 28 & 29

 

We draw number line from 28 & 29

Decimals in number line - 2 decimal point

For numbers with 2 decimal point like

  2.83

 

We draw it in the number line

Now,

  2.83 > 2

&       2.83 > 3

 

So, we draw number line from 2 to 3

13.jpg

We divide number line between 2 to 3 in 10 equal parts

14.jpg

Now, 2.83 will lie between 2.8 & 2.9

We divide it into 10 equal parts

15.jpg

 

Draw 48.85 in number line

Now,

  48.85 > 48.8

&       48.85 > 48.9

 

So, we draw number line from 48.8 to 48.9

16.jpg

We divide the number line between 48.8 & 48.9 into 10 equal parts
