Follow along with the highlighted text while you listen!

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

EXAMPLE:
The number $\displaystyle\,\frac{23}7\,$ lies between $\,3\,$ and $\,4\,$.

Thought process:   $\displaystyle\frac{23}7 = 3 + \frac{2}7\,$.
EXAMPLE:
The number $\displaystyle\,-\frac{23}7\,$ lies between $\,-4\,$ and $\,-3\,$.

Thought process:   Since $\quad\frac{23}7 = 3 + \frac{2}7\quad$ lies between $\,3\,$ and $\,4\,$,
its opposite lies between $\,-4\,$ and $\,-3\,$.
