**Algebra 2-1 Rational Numbers on a Number Line**

A number line can be used to show the sets of natural numbers, whole numbers and integers. Values greater than 0, or positive numbers, are listed to the right of 0, and values less than 0, or negative numbers, are listed to the left of 0. Harbour

**Algebra 2-1 Rational Numbers on a Number Line**

Another set of numbers you can display on a number line is the set of rational numbers. A rational number is any number that can be written in the form , where a and b are integers and b ≠ 0. Some examples of rational numbers: Harbour

**Algebra 2-1 Rational Numbers on a Number Line**

To graph a set of numbers means to draw, or plot, the points named by those numbers on a number line. The number that corresponds to a point on a number line is called the coordinate of that point. Harbour

**Identify Coordinates on a Number Line**

Name the coordinates of the points graphed on the number line. The dots indicate each point on the graph. Answer: The coordinates are {–9, –7, –6, –3}. Example 1-1a

**Algebra 2-1 Rational Numbers on a Number Line**

On the number line, notice that –4 and 4 are on opposite sides of zero and they are the same distance from zero. In mathematics, we say they have the same absolute value, 4. – 4 – 3 – 2 – | | | | | | | | | Harbour

**Algebra 2-1 Rational Numbers on a Number Line**

The absolute value of a number n is the distance the number is from zero on the number line and is written | n |. The absolute value of a number is always greater than or equal to zero. Harbour
