49 Matching Game

In this section, you’ll find numbers described in various ways: as fractions, as points on a number line, as decimals, and in a picture. Your job is to match these up in a way that makes sense.

Note: there may be more than one fraction to match a given decimal, or more than one picture to match a given point on the number line. So be ready to justify your answers.
