Let us consider 34 and 34. First, let us plot  34.
  • Here, the numerator \(3\) is less than the denominator \(4\).
  • Then the positive rational number will be between \(0\) and \(1\). 
  • Now, let us draw a number line and plot \(1\) and \(-1\). 
  • Then the number 34 has to lie somewhere between \(0\) and \(1\).
  • Now we divide the length between \(0\) and \(1\) into equal parts.
  • The Denominator gives us the number of equal parts(\(4\)).
  • It is \(4\), so we divide it into \(4\) equal parts.
  • The numerator tells us the number of parts starting from zero.
  • Here, it is \(3\). So we mark the point \(3\) parts away from the zero as shown in the below figure.

Similarly, 34 can be marked using the same procedure because 34 is the corresponding value of 34.
  • We know that it lies between \(0\) and \(-1\). So, we divide it into four equal parts and mark \(3\) parts away from the zero, as shown in the below figure.
