four numbers are placed on a number line.Which number is farthest to the left? A 4/9

B 9/20 C 0.43 D 2/5

Tell me how u did it so I can show my work or send a pic of ur work I forgot how to do this and u probaly think I'm stupid and this is easy

First you can make all the numbers decimals. (or fractions, but decimals is easiest in my opinion)

A. 4/9 = 0.444444...

B. 9/20 = 0.45

C. 0.43

D. 2/5 = 0.4

Put the numbers from least to greatest: 0.4, 0.43, 0.4444..., 0.45

You can then plot these numbers on a number line

0.4 0.43 0.4444... 0.45

__________________/______/______/_______/_______________

-1 0 1

From this line you can see that 0.4 is farthest to the left.

Go back to your original numbers. 0.4 = 2/5 = D

The answer is D. 2/5

Hope this helps!
