What two numbers are located 1/2 of a unit from 1/6 on a number line?

Accepted Solution

Answer:2/3 and -1/3Step-by-step explanation:We have to find which two numbers on the number line are at a distance of 1/2 from 1/6.The two numbers that are 1/2 units away from 1/6 will be:1) [tex]\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{2}\\\\ =\frac{1}{6}+\frac{3}{6}\\\\ =\frac{4}{6}\\\\=\frac{2}{3}[/tex]2) [tex]\frac{1}{6}-\frac{1}{2}\\\\ =\frac{1}{6}-\frac{3}{6}\\\\ =\frac{-2}{6}\\\\ =\frac{-1}{3}[/tex]Thus the two numbers are: 2/3 and -1/3
