Chapter 9 Rational Numbers Exercise 9.1

Question 1.

List five rational numbers between:

(i) -1 and 0

(ii) -2 and -1

Solution:

(i) -1 and 0

Converting each of rational numbers as a denominator 5 + 1 = 6, we have

(ii) -2 and -1

Converting each of rational numbers as a denominator 5 + 1 = 6, we have

Since there is only one integer i.e. -11 between -12 and -10, we have to find equivalent rational numbers.
