Given that the rational numbers are -2/5 and 1/2.

We have to find ten rational numbers between -2/5 and 1/2.

Rational numbers can be expressed as the ratio of two integers, where the denominator should not be equal to zero.

LCM of 5 and 2 = 5 x 2 = 10

Converting the given numbers with the same denominator, we get

-2/5 x 4/4 = -8/20

1/2 x 10/10 = 10/20

Now, -8/20 and 10/20 have the same denominator.

Any number with a numerator between -8 and 10 and the same denominator gives the rational numbers between the given numbers.

Numbers between -8 and 10 are -7, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

10 Rational numbers between -8/20 and 10/20 = -7/20, -6/20, -5/20, -4/20, -3/20, -2/20, -1/20, 0/20, 1/20 and 2/20.

Therefore, the required rational numbers are -7/20, -6/20, -5/20, -4/20, -3/20, -2/20, -1/20, 0/20, 1/20 and 2/20.

Summary:

## Find ten rational numbers between -2/5 and 1/2.

Ten rational numbers between -2/5 and 1/2 are -7/20, -6/20, -5/20, -4/20, -3/20, -2/20, -1/20, 0/20, 1/20 and 2/20.
