To find a **rational number** between any two numbers such as *r* and s, you can add r and s and divide the sum by 2, ie.., ^{(r+s)}/_{2 }lies between r and s.

**Example:**

Let r = 1 and s = 2. Find 6 rational numbers between 1 and 2.

^{We literally want rational numbers i.e., fractions between 1 and 2. The resultant fraction must be greater than 1 and less than 2.}
