Q 5.     The points P, Q, R, S, T, U, A and B on the number line are such that, TR = RS = SU and AP = PQ = QB. Name the rational numbers represented by P, Q, R, and S.

Given TR = RS = SU and AP = PQ = QB then, we have

There are two rational numbers between A and B i.e., P and Q which are at equal distances hence,

The rational numbers represented by P and Q are:

$P =2+ \frac{1}{3} = \frac{7}{3}\ and\ Q = 2+\frac{2}{3} = \frac{8}{3}$

Also, there are two rational numbers between U and T i.e., S and R which are at equal distances hence,

The rational numbers represented by S and R are:

$S =-2+ \frac{1}{3} = \frac{-5}{3}\ and\ R = -2+\frac{2}{3} = \frac{-4}{3}$
