1.72 Decimals on a Number Line

  1. Read the sequence of decimals given.
  2. Find the difference between the second and first decimal.
  3. Each succeeding decimal is the difference added to the previous decimal.
Example 1: Complete the patters 0.6, 1.2, __

Similarly 1.2 is represented.
Second decimal - First decimal = 1.2 - 0.6
Difference = 0.6
Hence third decimal = second decimal + difference
1.2 + 0.6 = 1.8
Answer: 1.8

Example 2: Complete the patters 2.3, 2.5, ___, 2.7
Second decimal - First decimal = 2.5 - 2.3
Difference = 0.2
Hence third decimal = second decimal + difference
2.5 + 0.2 = 2.7
Answer: 2.7


Directions: Find the missing decimal in the pattern. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
