This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 7, Unit 7, Grade 8. The number 0.253 is represented on the number line. How can we locate the number on the number line? We can see that 0.253 is a tad larger than 0.2 and is smaller than 0.3. So if we divide the line segment from 0 to 1 into tenths, 0.253 lies somewhere in the segment between 0.2 and 0.3. Now divide this segment into ten equal parts.
