LOCATING FRACTIONS ON A NUMBER LINE

In this exercise you will locate a fraction between the closest two integers on a number line.

EXAMPLE:
The number [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\displaystyle\,\frac{23}7\,$ lies between [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\,3\,$ and $\,4\,$.

Thought process:   [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\displaystyle\frac{23}7 = 3 + \frac{2}7\,$.
EXAMPLE:
The number [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\displaystyle\,-\frac{23}7\,$ lies between [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\,-4\,$ and $\,-3\,$.

Thought process:   Since [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\quad\frac{23}7 = 3 + \frac{2}7\quad$ lies between [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\,3\,$ and $\,4\,$,
its opposite lies between [beautiful math coming... please be patient] $\,-4\,$ and $\,-3\,$.
