## Finding 1 on the Number Line: A Step-by-Step Guide

###### Understanding the Number Line

When working with a number line, it is essential to recognize key points such as zero and unit fractions. For example, if we know the position of 0 and a fraction like 7/4, we can determine the location of other numbers, including 1.

###### Example 1: Using 7/4

**Identify the Points**: Start with 0 and 7/4 on the number line.**Count the Spaces**: Determine the number of equal spaces between 0 and 7/4. In this case, there are 7 spaces.**Determine the Unit Fraction**: Each space represents 1/4, because 7/4 is divided by 7 spaces.**Locate 1 on the Line**: Since 1 is equivalent to 4/4, count four spaces from 0. Thus, 1 is located at the fourth mark.

###### Example 2: Using 1/6

**Identify the Points**: Start with 0 and note that each subsequent mark represents 1/6.**Count the Spaces**: To find 1, recognize that it is equivalent to 6/6.**Locate 1 on the Line**: Count six spaces from 0, placing 1 at the sixth mark.

###### Conclusion

By breaking down the number line into unit fractions, locating any number becomes a straightforward process. Practice these steps using our flashcards and practice videos to ensure you can confidently find numbers on the number line.
