# Between which two whole numbers on the number line are the given numbers lie? Which of these whole numbers is nearer the number?

(a) 0.8

(b) 5.1

(c) 2.6

(d) 6.4

(e) 9.1

(f) 4.9

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of whole numbers and number lines to answer the given questions.

(a) As 0.8 is more than 0 and less than 1, it lies between the whole numbers 0 and 1.

(b) As 5.1 is slightly more than 5 and less than 6, it lies between the whole numbers 5 and 6.

(c) As 2.6 is more than 2 and less than 3, it lies between the whole numbers 2 and 3.

(d) 6.4 is more than 6 and less than 7, hence it lies between the whole numbers 6 and 7.

(e) The two whole numbers between which 9.1 lies are 9 and 10 as it is slightly more than 9 and less than 10.

(f) 4.9 lies between the whole numbers 4 and 5 as it is more than 4 and slightly less than 5.
