Question 2 Number System Exercise 1.1

Find five rational numbers between 1 and 2.

Answer:

The numbers that can be found between two rational numbers are known as rational numbers between two rational numbers. There can be an infinite number of rational numbers between any two rational numbers. We can use mean method to find them out.

We know, one rational number between two numbers m and n = (m+n)/2

To find: 5 rational numbers between 1 and 2

Step 1: Rational number between 1 and 2

= (1+2)/2

= 3/2

Step 2: Rational number between 1 and 3/2

= (1+3/2)/2

= 5/4

Step 3: Rational number between 1 and 5/4

= (1+5/4)/2

= 9/8

Step 4: Rational number between 3/2 and 2

= 1/2 [(3/2) + 2)]

= 7/4

Step 5: Rational number between 7/4 and 2

= 1/2 [7/4 + 2]

= 15/8

Arrange all the results: 1 < 9/8 < 5/4 < 3/2 < 7/4 < 15/8 < 2

Therefore required integers are, 9/8, 5/4, 3/2, 7/4, 15/8
