# Find three rational numbers between -2/5 and -3/5

A rational number is a number that can be expressed as the fraction p/q of two integers, a numerator p and a non-zero denominator q.

## Answer: Three rational numbers between -2/5 and -3/5 are - 9/20, -10/20, and -11/20.

Let's find the equivalent fractions of -3/5 and -2/5.

**Explanation:**

We multiply numerator and denominator by 4,

-3/5 = (- 3 × 4) / (5 × 4) = -12/20

-2/5 = (-2 × 4)/ (5 × 4) = -8/20

Now, the numbers between -8 and -12 are -9, -10, and -11.

Three rational numbers between -2/5 and -3/5 are - 9/20, -10/20, -11/20.

### Therefore, three rational numbers between -2/5 and -3/5 are - 9/20, -10/20, and -11/20.
