Solution

## How to find rational numbers between two given numbers? If m and n be two numbers such that m < n then 1/2 (m + n) is a rational number between m and n. 1)Find the rational numbers between -3 and -2 Ans;Required number = 1/2 (-3 +(-2))                                     =1/2(-5)                                     = -1/10  Hence, -1/10 is a rational number lying halfway between -3 and -2 2) Find the rational numbers between -3/5 and -1/5    Ans: Required number = 1/2 (-3/5 + (- 1/5))                                          =(1/2)*(- 4/5)                                           = - 4/10 Hence, - 4/10 is a rational number lying between - 3/5 and - 1/5.
