## Texas Go Math Grade 3 Lesson 2.4 Answer Key Fractions on a Number Line

**Essential Question**

How can you represent and locate fractions on a number line?

**Unlock the problem**

Billy’s family is traveling from his house to his grandma’s house. They stop at gas stations when they are \(\frac{1}{4}\) and \(\frac{3}{4}\) of the way there. How can he represent those distances on a number line?

You can use a number line to show fractions. The length from one whole number to the next whole number represents one whole. The line can be divided into any number of equal parts, or lengths.

**Math Idea**

A point on a number line shows the endpoint of a length, or distance, from zero. A number or fraction can name the distance.

Activity Locate fractions on a number line.

Step 1

Divide the line into four equal lengths, or fourths. Place four \(\frac{1}{4}\)-fraction strips end-to-end above the line to help.

Step 2

At the end of each strip, draw a mark on the line.

Step 3

Count the fourths from zero to 1 to label the distances from zero.

Step 4

Think: \(\frac{1}{4}\) is 1 out of 4 equal lengths.

Draw a point at \(\frac{1}{4}\) to represent the distance from 0 to \(\frac{1}{4}\). Label the point G1

Step 5

Think: \(\frac{3}{4}\) is 3 out of 4 equal lengths.

Draw a point at \(\frac{3}{4}\) to represent the distance from 0 to \(\frac{3}{4}\). Label the point G2

Answer:

**Example**

Complete the number line to name the point.

Materials color pencils, fraction strips

Write the fraction that names the point on the number line.

Think: This number line is divided into six equal lengths or sixths.

The length of one equal part is ___.

Shade the fraction strip diagram to show the location of the point.

There are ___ out of ___ equal lengths shaded.

The shaded length shows \(\frac{5}{6}\)

So, __ names the point.

Answer:

The length of one equal part is \(\frac{1}{6}\)

There are 5 out of 6 equal lengths shaded.

So, \(\frac{5}{6}\) names the point.

Question 5.

**Multi-Step** Javia ran 8 laps around a track to run a total of 1 mile on Monday. How many laps will she need to run on Tuesday to run \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile?

(A) 1

(B) 3

(C) 6

(D) 8

Answer:

3

Explanation:

Javia runs 1 mile in 8 laps.

3 times \(\frac{3}{8}\) = \(\frac{3}{8}\)

So when she runs \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile, she’s run 3 laps.

a. What do you need to find?

Answer:

We need to find the number of laps Javia will need to run.

b. Explain How will you use what you know about number lines to help you solve the problem?

Answer:

I will use the number line to count the number of laps in \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile.

c.** H.O.T.** Make a model to solve the problem.

Answer:

d. Complete the sentences.

There are ___ laps in 1 mile. Each lap represents ___ of a mile. ___ laps represent the distance of three eighths of a mile. So, Javia will need to run ___ laps to run \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile.

Answer:

There are 8 laps in 1 mile.

Each lap represents \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile.

Three laps represent the distance of three eighths of a mile.

So, Javia will need to run 3 laps to run \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile.

e. Fill in the bubble for the correct answer choice above.

Answer:

3

Explanation:

she runs \(\frac{3}{8}\) of a mile, she’s run 3 laps.
