## Tamilnadu State Board Class 9 Maths Solutions Chapter 2 Real Numbers Ex 2.4

Question 1.

Represent the following numbers on the number line.

(i) 5.348

(ii) \(6.\overline { 4 }\) upto 3 decimal places.

(iii) \(4.\overline { 73 }\) upto 4 decimal places.

Solution:

(i) 5.348

Step 1 : First we note that 5.348 lies between 5 and 6.

Step 2 : Divide the portion between 5 and 6 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 5.348 lies between 5.3 and 5.4.

Step 3 : Divide the portion between 5.3 and 5.4 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 5.348 lies between 5.34 and 5.35.

Step 4 : Divide the portion between 5.34 and 5.35 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 5.348 lies between 5.348 and 5.349.

Step 5 : Divide the portion between 5.348 and 5.349 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 5.348 lies between 5.349 and 5.348.

We note that 5,349 is visualised closed to 5.349 than to 5.348.

(ii) \(6.\overline { 4 }\) upto 3 decimal places.

\(6.\overline { 4 }\) = 6.444

= 6.444 (upto 3 decimal places).

The number lies between 6 and 7.

Step 1 : First we note that 6.444 lies between 6 and 7.

Step 2 : Divide the portion between 6 and 7 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 6.4 lies between 6.4 and 6.5.

Step 3 : Divide the portion between 6.4 and 6.5 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 6.4 lies between 6.44 and 6.45.

Step 4 : Divide the portion between 6.44 and 6.45 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that 6.444 lies between 6.445 and 6.444. We note that 6.4 is visualised closed to 6.444 than to 6.445.

(iii) \(4.\overline { 73 }\) upto 4 decimal places

\(4.\overline { 73 }\) = 4.73737373

= 4.7373 (correct 4 decimal places).

The number lies between 4 and 5

Step 1 : First we note that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) lies between 4 and 5.

Step 2 : Divide the portion between 4 and 5 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) lies between 4.7 and 4.8.

Step 3 : Divide the portion between 4.7 and 4.8 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) lies between 4.73 and 4.74.

Step 4 : Divide the portion between 4.73 and 4.74 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) lies between 4.733 and 4.734.

Step 5 : Divide the portion between 4.733 and 4.734 into 10 equal parts and use a magnifying glass to visualise that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) lies between 4.7332 and 4.7334.

We note that \(4.7\overline { 3 }\) is visualised closed to 4.7332 than to 4.7334
