A number line can be divided into several units to represent fractions.

Fractions are considered as a part of a whole and consist of two parts: numerator and denominator.

Numerator: It is a number on top.

Denominator: It is a number on the bottom.

**A step-by-step guide to representing fractions on the number lines**

**Step 1: **First, divide the unit length between two numbers into some identical parts based on the denominator.

**Step 2: **Then count these identical parts and represent the numerator on the number line.

**Using Number Lines to Represent Fractions – Examples 1:**
