If m lies between the integers p and s on the number line shown, which of the following is a possible value for m?

A. $$\sqrt{17}$$

B. $$\sqrt{4}$$

C. $$2.9$$

D. $$\frac{20}{4}$$

E. $$\frac{10}{3}$$

As $$p$$ and $$s$$ are integers then from the diagram we can get that: $$p=3$$ and $$s=4$$, so $$3<m<4$$. The only answer choice which falls in this range is E: $$\frac{10}{3}=3.(3)$$.

As for your question, I'm not sure what you mean by the "formula for the number line problem". Can you please specify?

Looking at the number line, P=3 & S=4,
So m is valued as 3<m<4.
The only choice remains is E which is -3.333
