## 13 Fun Activities to Show Fractions on a Number Line Worksheet PDF

Fractions!!! You will not find this term as simple as it looks like. To show a fraction in a number line, your little champ has to have precise knowledge on fractions and number lines.

That’s why we bring you the following thirteen fun and exciting fractions on a number line worksheet PDF in this article. Read details about each activity before solving them.

## Find Numerator and Denominator of Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

In the following worksheets, you will find several number lines with some fractions written on them. Here you have to find the numerators or the denominators of several fractions as per the given exercises. Here are some tricks and tips to find the desired numerator and the denominator.

- To find a numerator, you have to count the dot of the top space from the beginning till you reach your problem spot. The number of dots you just passed is your desired numerator.
- To find the denominator, just count the number of spaces between the beginning and the ending number of a number line. The number of spaces you get is your denominator.

Now solve the relevant problems given in the following worksheet.

## Guess and Write Fractions from Number Line Worksheet

This time, you will provide some dots on number lines. The dots will be empty and you will guess the fractions from the position of the dots. Now, what will be your strategy to identify those fractions? See the tips given in our first activity. Identify the numerator and the denominator and thus find the hidden fraction.

## Find Missing Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

In the number lines of the following worksheet, you will notice some English alphabets. Each of the alphabets represents some fraction value. Use the tips shown in the previous activities and find the values of those alphabets.

## Fill the Gaps with Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

This activity is the harder version of the previous one. Here, you will find empty boxes but not any fractions before or after those boxes. At the beginning and the end of the number line, two numbers are provided. See those numbers carefully find the correct fractions for each of the empty boxes and write those fractions in their respective boxes.

## Mark and Write Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

Here, you will find a pair of fractions beside each of the number lines. Your task is to draw those fractions in their respective number lines. See the value of the numerators and the denominators to point those fractions correctly on the number lines.

## Matching Fractions on Number Lines with Correct Image Worksheet

Some alphabets are plotted in the number lines given in the below-given worksheets. First of all, you have to find the value of those alphabets which are fractions

You will see a second column beside the number line with some shapes in them. Each shape represents a fraction that matches one of the number lines of the first column. However, the images are not in the correct order as the number lines. Draw a line from each of the number lines to match its value with the correct shape.

## Comparing Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

Some fractions and number lines are given in the following worksheets. Mark and plot those fractions in their respective number lines. After plotting all of them, arrange them in both increasing and decreasing order.

## Find Mixed Numbers on Number Line Worksheet

This time we will find some mixed numbers on a number line. It might sound tricker to find a mixed number on a number line. Let’s explain the whole procedure to find a mixed number in the number line.

- As you know, a mixed number consists of two parts, one is a whole number and the other is a proper fraction.
- In the worksheets below, you will find either some mixed numbers above every number line or some pointed arrows on the number line to find respective mixed numbers.
- To point a mixed number on a number line, first notice the whole number part to understand the range of whole numbers in which you have to mark your mixed number.
- Then notice the denominator of the mixed number. Divide the range of whole numbers into exact amounts of parts equal to your denominator.
- Finally, notice your numerator. Starting from the beginning point of the number line we have to jump to the exact number of spaces equal to the numerator. That’s your desired mixed number’s position in the number line.

Now solve the relevant problems given in the following worksheet.

## Plotting Equivalent Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

**Time for plotting some equivalent fractions on the number line.** Here you will find two types of tasks. In the first one, you have to find equivalent fractions of a given fraction and show them in their respective number lines. For the second task, you have to verify some statements regarding equivalent fractions and their assigned number lines.

## Adding Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

From now on, we are going to perform some basic operations of fractions on the number line. **We will start with adding fractions.**

- To show the addition of fractions on the number line, divide the range of whole numbers into the exact number of parts equal to the denominator.
- Then add the numerators of the given fractions and starting from the start point of the number line jump the number of points that is equal to the newly found numerator after adding.
- After jumping, point to the place you have reached and that indicates the fraction you got after addition.

Now solve the relevant problems given in the following worksheet.

## Subtracting Fractions Fractions on Number Line Worksheet

**We will perform the subtraction of fractions as our second basic operation.** Here the rules will be the same as the addition of fractions.

- To show the subtraction of fractions on the number line, divide the range of whole numbers into the exact number of parts equal to the denominator.
- Then subtract the numerators of the given fractions and starting from the start point of the number line jump the number of points that is equal to the newly found numerator after subtracting.
- After jumping, point to the place you have reached and that indicates the fraction you got after subtraction.

Now solve the relevant problems given in the following worksheet.
