# Write shaded portion as a fraction. Arrange them in ascending and descending order using correct sign ‘<’, ‘=’, ‘>’ between the fractions:

(c) Show 2/4, 4/6, 8/6, and 6/6 on the number line. Put appropriate signs between the fractions given.

5/6 (_) 2/6, 3/6 (_) 0, 1/6 (_) 6/6, 8/6 (_) 5/6,

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of fractions, comparing fractions, and the number line to answer the given question.

(a) We divide the number of shaded portions in the circle by the total number of divisions to obtain the required fractions.

i) In the first circle, the total number of divisions = 8

The number of shaded portion = 3

∴ The required fraction = 3/8

ii) In the second circle, the total number of divisions = 8

The number of shaded portion = 6

∴ The required fraction = 6/8

(iii) In the third circle, the total number of divisions = 8

The number of shaded portion = 4

∴ The required fraction = 4/8

(iv) In the fourth circle, the total number of divisions = 8

The number of shaded portion = 1

∴ The required fraction = 1/8

The fractions are 3/8, 6/8, 4/8 and, 1/8. The denominator is the same.

Ascending order of fractions: (1/8) < (3/8) < (4/8) < (6/8)

Descending order of fraction: (6/8) > (4/8) > (3/8) > (1/8)

(b) We divide the number of shaded portions in the circle by the total number of divisions to obtain the required fractions.

(i) The total number of blocks = 9

The number of shaded portion = 8

∴ The fraction = 8/9

(ii) The total number of blocks = 9

The number of shaded portion = 4

∴ The fraction = 4/9

(iii) The total number of blocks = 9

The number of shaded portion = 3

∴ The fraction = 3/9

(iv) The total number of blocks = 9

The number of shaded portion = 6

∴ The fraction = 6/9

∴ The fractions are 8/9, 4/9, 3/9,6/9. The denominators are the same.

Ascending order of fractions: (3/9) < (4/9) < (6/9) < (8/9)

Descending order of fraction: (8/9) > (6/9) > (4/9) > (3/9)

(c). 2/4, 4/6, 8/6, and 6/6

Now appropriate signs between the fractions are given below:

5/6 (>) 2/6, 3/6 (>) 0, 1/6 (<) 6/6, 8/6 (>) 5/6.

## Write shaded portion as a fraction. Arrange them in ascending and descending order using the correct sign ‘<‘, ‘=’, ‘>’ between the fractions. (c) Show 2/4, 4/6, 8/6, and 6/6 on the number line. Put appropriate signs between the fractions given. 5/6 (_) 2/6, 3/6 (_) 0, 1/6 (_) 6/6, 8/6 (_) 5/6,

**Summary:**

(a) The fractions are (i) 3/8 (ii) 6/8 (iii) 4/8 and, (iv) 1/8. The fractions in the ascending order are (1/8), (3/8), (4/8), and (6/8) and the fractions in the descending order are (6/8), (4/8), (3/8), and (1/8).

(b) The fractions are (i) 8/9 (ii) 4/9 (iii) 3/9 and, (iv) 6/9. The fractions in the ascending order are (3/9), (4/9), (6/9), and (8/9) and the fractions in the descending order are (8/9), (6/9), (4/9), and (3/9).

(c) The appropriate signs between the fractions are 5/6 (>) 2/6, 3/6 (>) 0, 1/6 (<) 6/6, 8/6 (>) 5/6.
