    @texaschic101 it's in the middle of -2 and -3 but it's a little closer to -3

    do you see the number line? do you see that if you divide the one unit into 10 then each division has a value of 0.1

    count how many markers you have and multiply by 0.1 subtract from the whole number

    I have no idea because I don't see where R is?

    read my response carefully. i don't know exactly where R is. you have to count the markers. You are not showing that in your sketch. look at my example 4.8 means 8 markers after the 4 -2,5 means 5 markers left of the -2
