# Class 9 NCERT Solutions – Chapter 1 Number System – Exercise 1.4

**Question 1.** Visualize 3.765 on the number line, using successive magnification.

**Solution:**

Now in the given question, you have to represent 3.765 on the number line using the successive magnification method.

**Step 1:** We will check the range of the number and magnify it accordingly. That is, 3.765 will lie between 3 and 4 so we will magnify the value between 3 and 4.

Magnify 3 and 4

**Step 2:** Now 3.76 will lie between 3.7 and 3.8, so we will magnify the value between 3.7 and 3.8.

**Step 3:** Now as we will magnify we will check the range, that is, 3.765 will lie between 3.76 and 3.77.

**Step 4:** Now as we will magnify the value between 3.76 and 3.77 we will find the value 3.765.

Hence 3.765 is found between 3.76 and 3.77

### Question 2. Visualize on the number line, up to 4 decimal places.

Now in this question, we have to represent the number on the number line. The bar sign ( ͞ ) above .26 depicts that the number .26 is repeated continuously after the decimal point. But it is given that we have to represent the number up to 4 decimal places only, that is, we have to represent 4.2626 on the number line.

**Step 1:** We will check the range of the number and magnify it accordingly.

**Step 2:** Now 4.2626 will lie between 4 and 5, so we will magnify the value between 4 and 5.

Magnify 4 and 5

**Step 3:** 4.26 will lie between 4.2 and 4.3, so we will magnify the value between 4.2 and 4.3.

**Step 4:** 4.262 will lie between 4.26 and 4.27, so we will magnify the value between 4.26 and 4.27.

**Step 5:** Now at last 4.2626 will lie between 4.262 and 4.263, so we will magnify the value between 4.262 and 4.263.

**Step 6:** As we will magnify the value between 4.262 and 4.263 we will get 4.2626.

Hence 4.2626 is found between 4.262 and 4.263
