# NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 9 Rational Numbers

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 9 Rational Numbers Exercise 9.1
Ex 9.1 Class 7 Maths Question 1.
List five rational numbers between:
(i) -1 and 0
(ii) -2 and -1
(iii) $$\frac{-4}{5} \text { and } \frac{-2}{3}$$
(iv) $$\frac{1}{2} \text { and } \frac{2}{3}$$
Solution:
(i) -1 and 0
Converting each of rational numbers as a denominator 5 + 1 = 6, we have Hence, the required five rational numbers between -1 and 0 are $$\frac{-5}{6}, \frac{-2}{3}, \frac{-1}{2}, \frac{-1}{3} \text { and }-\frac{1}{6}$$

(ii) -2 and -1
Converting each of rational numbers as a denominator 5 + 1 = 6, we have (iii) $$\frac{-4}{5} \text { and } \frac{-2}{3}$$
Converting each of the rational numbers as a denominator 5 × 3 = 15, we have Since there is only one integer i.e. -11 between -12 and -10, we have to find equivalent rational numbers. (iv) $$\frac{1}{2} \text { and } \frac{2}{3}$$
Converting each of the rational numbers in their equivalent rational numbers, we have  Ex 9.1 Class 7 Maths Question 2.
