Explanation: Given the value is \(\frac{1}{6}\), \(\frac{4}{6}\),

Now, we will label the given value on a line.

The steps for labeling a line are below,

1. First, divide the number line into 6 equal parts (the denominator).

2. Next, count from zero the parts you need (the numerator). The parts are \(\frac{1}{6}\), \(\frac{2}{6}\), \(\frac{3}{6}\), \(\frac{4}{6}\), \(\frac{5}{6}\), \(\frac{6}{6}\),

Question 5.

a.

Answer: \(\frac{1}{2}\) >\(\frac{1}{4}\)

Explanation: Given the two circle figures with fraction values.

Now, we will compare the given fraction value.

So, the values are \(\frac{1}{2}\),\(\frac{1}{4}\).

i.e., \(\frac{1}{2}\) >\(\frac{1}{4}\).

Therefore, \(\frac{1}{2}\) is greater than \(\frac{1}{4}\).

b.

Answer: \(\frac{2}{3}\)< \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Explanation: Given the two circle figures with fraction values.

Now, we will compare the given fraction values.
