# How to represent a rational number greater than 1?

**Representing a rational number greater than 1 on the number line:**

- To represent a rational number greater than 1 on the number line, first, convert it into a mixed fraction.
- The number will lie between the whole number part and the next whole number.
- Divide the number line between the whole number part and the next whole number into n parts, where n is the denominator of the fractional part.

**Example :**

Lets take $\frac{3}{2}$

Convert to mixed fraction, we get,

$\frac{3}{2} = 1\frac{1}{2}$

So, $1\frac{1}{2}$ lies between 1 and 2 in the number line.

From the above figure, Point A represents the number $\frac{3}{2}$.
