20130130 Point to Ponder... Rational Numbers on a Number Line?

Enter your response to the following in "Comments".

1. No, I do not. ,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,1,2,3,4,5 are all rational numbers and they. fit the requirements of the question, henceforth the question is valid

2. I do not agree as we can represent -5 on the number line example , -5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5.So the question is valid.

3. I do not agree.-5 is part of real numbers.Basically real numbers are any number(Decimal,rational,irrational,whole,etc.)except imaginary numbers and infinity.-5 is a rational number.rational numbers are part of the real numbers.5 is a rational as it is 5/1.So -5 is almost the same but it is expressed as -5/1

2. My opinion has changed.Actually i kinda agree with Juliet.Rational numbers such as 5.2 can be stated but the problem is if i say that the rational numbers are from -5 to 4 its actually wrong.Because 3.7495746 is not a rational number so we can never state rational numbers in a number line.

4. No, as we can represent 1which is a rational number on a number line :-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5

5. No, I do not agree. -5,-4,-3,-2,-1,1,2,3,4,5 are rational numbers and they meet the requirements of the question, so the question is valid

6. I do not agree with Juliet. rational numbers can be written in the number line. the rules for m is that m has to be a rational number that is both larger or equals to -5 and smaller than 4 therefore it is still possible to write the statement in a number line and thus making the question valid

7. I do not agree as the numbers between -5 and 4 are all rational numbers and they can be used to answer the question. Thus,the question is valid.

8. No I do NOT AGREE with Juliet. It is possible to express the requirements of the question on a number line.
-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3

9. I don't agree with Juliet because rational numbers like 3,2,1,0,-1,-2,-3,-4,-5 can all be written on the number line and thus the question is valid.

10. No, I do not agree with Juliet, because rational numbers eg. -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. can be written on the number line and therefore, the question is valid.

11. we can put rational numbers on the number line. thus, julian is not correct

12. No. I do not agree because rational numbers like -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3, can be written on the number line. And thus the question is valid.

13. I don't agree because rational numbers like -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4, can be written on the number line. Hence, the question should be valid.

14. I do not agree with Juliet because -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 are rational and can be written on the number line. So the question is valid.

15. No, i do not agree as -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 are all rational numbers so the question should be vaild

16. I do not agree with Juliet as rational numbers such as -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 are all rational numbers and they fit on a number line.

17. I do not agree with Juliet because -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 are rational numbers and they also can be written on a number line. I conclude that the question is valid

18. Actually i kinda agree with Juliet.Rational numbers such as 5.2 can be stated but the problem is if i say that the rational numbers are from -5 to 4 its actually wrong.Because 3.7495746 is not a rational number so we can never state rational numbers in a number line.
