    A rational number can be defined as the quotient a/b of two integers so that q is not equal to zero.

    Given two rational numbers are -1/3 and 1/3

    we need to find five rational numbers between the given two numbers

    -1/3 can also be written as -1/3 * 6/6 = -6/18

    and,

    1/3 can also be written as 1/3 * 6/6 = 6/18

    (when we do the multiplication we get the same values)

    we know that the integers between -6 and 6 are: -5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5.

    similarly here for the given range -6/18 to 6/18

    the numbers between them are :

    -5/18 < -4/28 < -3/18 < -2/18 < -1/18 < 0 < 1/18 < 2/18 < 3/18 < 4/18 < 5/18

    we can select any five numbers of our choice from the above list.

    The five integers between the given two numbers are:

    -2/18, -4/18, 2/18, 3/18, 1/18.
