# Where does 3/4 lie on the real number line?

A number line extends from $- \infty$ on the extreme left to $\infty$ on the extreme right. Zero will be in the center. Just one unit to the right of zero is $1$ and $- 1$ one unit to the left of zero.
$\frac{3}{4}$ lies between $0$ on the left and $1$ on the right. Divide this portion in four equal parts. $\frac{3}{4}$ will be one part to the left of $1$.
