INTRODUCTION

1. Counting

It is likely that mathematics began when people started to count and measure. Counting and measuring are part of everyday life.

Ancient people used fingers and toes to help them count or group numbers in different number bases. This led them to collect numbers in groups: sometimes 5s (fingers of one hand), sometimes 10s (both hands) and even in 20s (hands and feet). When people group numbers in 5s, we say they use a base five method. The most common bases used were five, ten and twenty. For example, a person with thirty two cows would say ‘I have six fives and two cows’ when counting in base ten. The most widely used base is base ten also called the denary system.

Other bases of counting: seven and sixty

7 days = 1 week

60 seconds = 1 minute

60 minutes = 1 hour

In English, ‘dozen’ means 12, ‘score’ means 20 and ‘gross’ means 144

System of Counting

1. Tally System

Tally marks were probably the first numerals.

The ancient people employed tally marks to count large numbers. The tally marks were scratched on stones or sometimes cut on sticks but today we use tally marks to count or record large data, especially in statistics.

A tally mark of 5 is written by putting a line across a tally count of 4.

i.e = 4 and = 5

Example 1

Draw the tally marks for each of the following numbers:

1. 34 (b) 15

Solution

1. 34 =
2. 15 =

EVALUATION

1. During a dry season, it did not rain for 128 days. How many weeks and days is this?
2. What is the number represented by
3. Draw the tally marks for each of the following numbers: (a) 43 (b) 52

1. Roman numerals

The Romans used capital letters of the alphabets to represent numbers. Many people believe that the Romans used the fingers to represent numbers as follows:

I for one finger, II for two fingers, III for three fingers, V for five fingers and X for the combination of two hands ( or two V’s) .

The Roman also used L for fifty, C for hundred, D for five hundred and M for one thousand as shown below.

 Hindu-Arabic Roman Numeral Hindu-Arabic Roman Numeral 1 I 20 XX 2 II 40 XL 3 III 50 L 4 IV 60 LX 5 V 90 XC 6 VI 100 C 7 VII 400 CD 8 VIII 500 D 9 IX 900 CM 10 X 1000 M

The Roman used the subtraction and addition method to obtain other numerals. For example

2. IV means V- I i.e. 5- 4 = 4
3. VI means V+ I, i.e. 5 + 1 = 6
4. IX means X- I, i.e. 10 – 1 = 9
5. XXIV means XX + IV = 20 + 4 = 24
6. CD means D- C = 500 – 100 = 400
7. MC means M + C = 1000 + 100 = 1100

Example 1

Change the following numbers to Roman numerals: (a) 2459 (b) 3282

Solution

1. 2459— 2000 = MM

400 = CD

50 = L

9 = IX

2459 = MMCDLIX

1. 3282 = 3000 + 200 + 80 + 2

= MMM CC LXXX II

i.e 3282 = MMMCCLXXXII

EVALUATION

1. Write the following Roman figures in natural ( or counting) numbers:
1. MMMCLIV (b) MMCDLXXI (c) MCMIX (d) DCCCIV
2. Write the following natural numbers in Roman figures:
1. 2659 (b) 1009 (c) 3498 (d) 1584

1. The Counting board

A counting board is a block of stone or wood ruled in columns. Loose counters, pebbles, stones or seeds in the columns show the value of the numbers in the columns.

Counters in the right-hand column (U) represent units, counters in the next column (T) represent tens, and so on.

 TH H T U ●●● ● ●● ●●●● ●●●●

2 7 5

The diagram below is a counting board showing the number 275.

1. The Abacus

An abacus is a frame consisting of beads or disks that can be moved up or down (i.e. slide) on a series of wires or strings. Each wire has its own value. Both abacus and counting board work in the same way when carrying out calculations.

Example 1

M HTH TH H T U

An Abacus showing 2703

1. Place Value of Numbers

Numbers of units, tens, hundreds,…….., are each represented by a single numeral.

(a).For a whole number:

– the units place is at the right-hand end of the number.

– the tens place is next to the units place on the left, and so on

For example: 5834 means ↓

5 thousands, 8 hundreds, 3 tens, and 4 units.

See the illustration below:

5 8 3 4

(b) for decimal fraction, we count the places to the right from the decimal point as tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc.

See the illustration below:

↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓

6 . 7 9 8

6 → units

. → decimal

7 → tenths

9 → hundredths

8 → thousandths

Example 1:

What is the place value of each of the following?

1. the 9 in 10269
2. the 2 in 2984

Solution:

1. the 9 in 10269 is = 9 units or nine units

Counting and Writing in millions, billions and trillions

The figures 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are called digits or units.

The table below gives the names and values of some large numbers.

 Name Value One thousand 1 000 Ten thousand 10 000 One hundred thousand 100 000 One million 1 000 000 Ten million 10 000 000 One hundred million 100 000 000 One billion 1 000 000 000 One trillion 1 000 000 000 000

Large numbers can be read easily by grouping the digits in threes starting from the right hand side as shown below.

Billion Million TH H T U

25 800 074 4 3 0

The 1st gap separates hundreds from thousands and the second gap separates thousands from millions and the third gap separates million from billion.

Thus 25 800 074 430 reads twenty five billion, eight hundred million, seventy four thousand, eight hundred and ninety.

Example

Write the following in figures:

1. twelve billion, three hundred and nine million, ninety five thousand, six hundred and sixty three
2. six trillion, four hundred and thirty billion, one hundred and five million, two hundred and one thousand and fifty four
3. nine hundred and four billion, five hundred and forty million, three hundred and seventy thousand, seven hundred and fifty

Solution

1. You can work it out as follows:
 Twelve billion = 12 000 000 000 Three hundred and nine million = 309 000 000 Ninety five thousand = 95 000 Six hundred and sixty three = 663 Adding = 12 309 095 663
 Six Trillion = 6 000 000 000 000 Four hundred and thirty billion = 430 000 000 000 One hundred and five million = 105 000 000 Two hundred and one thousand = 201 000 Fifty four = 54 Adding = 6 430 105 201 054
1.
 Nine hundred and four billion = 904 000 000 000 Five hundred and forty million = 540 000 000 Three hundred and seventy thousand = 370 000 Seven hundred and fifty = 750 Adding = 904 540 370 750

Ordering Large Numbers

Any 2-digit number is larger than every unit number, e.g 11 is larger than 9. Any 3-digit number is larger than every 2-digit numbere.g 132 is greater than 86, and so on.

When a set of numbers are given, it is useful to rearrange the numbers in such a way that those that start in such a way that those that start with the same digit can be compared.

Example 1

Find the smallest and the largest number from the following set of numbers:

2 675 571, 3 498 567, 2 670 781, 3 497 859

Solution

2 6 7 5 5 7 1

2 6 7 0 7 8 1

3 4 9 8 5 6 7

3 4 9 7 8 5 9

The smallest number is 2 670 781 and the largest number is 3 498 567.

The numbers in the example above can also be arranged in order of size starting with the smallest as follows:

2 670 781, 2 675 571, 3 497 859, 3 498 567

This arrangement is also called ascending order. The reverse is known as descending order.

Example 2

Arrange these numbers in order of size magnitude) starting with the smallest: 13456786, 24567432, 38479871, 24558011, 13498069, 38478817.

Solution

Always group large numbers in threes.

Arranging the numbers that start with 1 in order of size: 13 456 786, 13 498 069

Arranging the numbers that start with 2: 24 558 011, 24 567 432

Arranging the numbers that start with 3: 38 478 817, 38 479 871

Hence, arranging these numbers in order of magnitude gives: 13 456 786, 13 498 069, 24 558 011, 24 567 432, 24 558 011, 24 567 432

EVALUATION

1. Arrange the following numbers in ascending order: 89728567, 89704567, 89693670, 89776909, 89735890.
2. Arrange the following numbers in descending order: 217679057, 497378939, 234656452, 21023404895, 2100998969.

Using Mixture of Digits and Words with Large Numbers

People often get confused when reading and writing large numbers. To avoid the confusion, the editors of newspapers use a combination of digits and words to show large numbers. For example, 1 million people, \$ 1.5 billion, N 3.6 trillion.

Some newspapers headlines are as follows:

• Unemployment soaring to 10.7 million
• HIV rose to an estimated 23 million in 2010
• Cost of ID rises to £10 billion in the UK.

Example 1

Write these numbers as a mixture of digits and words:

1. £30 000 000 (b) N75 000 000 000 (c) \$460 000 000 (d) £3 400 000 000 000

Solution

1. £30 000 000 = £30 x 1 000 000

= £30 million

1. N 75 000 000 000 = N 75 x 1 000 000 000

= N 75 billion

2. \$460 000 000 = \$460 x 1 000 000

= \$460 million

3. £3 400 000 000 000 = £3.4 x 1 000 000 000 000

= £3.4 trillion

Example 2

Write the following numbers in digits

1. 3.6 million (b) 2 billion

Solution

1. 3.6 million = 3.6 x 1 000 000

= 3 600 000

2. 2 billion = 2.75 x 1 000 000 000

= 2 750 000 000

Large Numbers (QR)

The S. I system of units is an internationally agreed method of measuring quantities such as length, mass, capacity and time.

Example 1.

Express the following in millimeter.

(a) 173 cm (b) 5.9km   (c ) 200m

Solution

1. 173 cm to mm

Since 1cm = 10mm

Then, 173cm = 173 x 10

= 1 730mm

2. 5.9km to mm

1cm = 10mm, 100cm = 1m, 1000m = 1km. Therefore, 1 000 000mm = 1 km

1. km = 5.9 x 1 000 000mm

= 5 900 000 or 5.9 million(mm)

3. 200m to mm

1m = 1000mm

200m = 200 x 1 000mm

= 200 000mm or 200 thousand (mm)

WEEK THREE

TOPIC: LEAST COMMON MULTIPLE AND HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR OF WHOLE NUMBERS

CONTENT

• Multiples
• Common Multiples
• Least Common Multiples (LCM)
• Highest Common Factors (HCF).

Multiples

Multiples mean finding the product of a positive integer with another positive integer. Simply put, when a whole number multiples another whole number, the result obtained is called the multiple of either of those numbers.

The first four multiples of 12 are

12 x 1  = 12

12 x 2  = 24

12 x 3  = 36

12 x 4 =48

Thus, we write 12, 24, 36 and 48 as the first for multiples of 12.

Note: Every whole number has an infinite number of multiples

Every whole number has a finite number of factors.

Example 1

Find the next five multiple of the following whole numbers.

(a) 4 (b) 8 (c ) 11.

Solution

In these questions, the numbers are not to be included because it reads next.

(a) 4,  4 x 1  = 4  (not included)

4 x 2  = 8

4 x 3  = 12

4 x 4  = 16

4 x 5  = 20

4 x 6  = 24

:. The next five multiples of 4 are 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24.

(b) 8, 8 x 1  =8 multiple of 11

8 x 2  =16 11 x 1  =11

8 x 3  =24 11 x 2  = 22

8 x 4  =32 11 x 3  = 33

8 x 5  =40 11 x 4 = 44

8 x 6  = 48 11 x 5  = 55

11 x 6  = 66

the next five multiples of the next five multiples of 11 are 22, 33,44,55 and 66

8 are 16, 24, 32, 40 and 48.

Example 2

Which of the following numbers 18, 20, 27 36 and 50 are

1. multiples of 2
2. multiples of 3
3. multiples of 4.

Solution

When a number can be divided exactly by another number it means the quotient is a multiple of the divisor. 18, 20, 27 36, 50

1. multiples of 2 are 18, 20, 27 36, 50
2. multiples of 3 are 18, 27 and 36
3. multiple of 4 are 20 and 36.

Least Common Multiples (LCM)

You can find the least common multiples of two or more numbers by listing as many multiples as you need until you have one that is common to both or all the numbers.

For instance to find the LCM of 24 and 15

Multiples of 24 = 24, 48, 72,96, 120………

Multiples of 15 = 15, 30, 45, 60, 75,90, 105, 120.

Although the numbers will have many common multiples but, looking at what we are after, that is the least of the common multiples, the answer will be 120.

:. LCM of 24 and 15 = 120.

Rather than writing out a long list of multiples for each number, you can use the prime factors method to find the LCM. This is the method we are going to apply.

Example 1

Find the LCM of the following whole numbers:

(a) 24 and 15 (b) 8 and 45  ( c ) 16 and 18 (d) 90, 105 and 210.

Solution

(a) The LCM of 24 and 15

5 1 1 3 1 15

3 1 5

5 1 1

LCM = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5= 120 Lcm = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 = 360

:.LCM of 24 and 15 = 120  ;. LCM of 8 and 45 = 360.

(c) LCM of 16 and 18  (d) LCM of 90, 105 and 210

3 1 1cc

LCM = 2 x 2 x 2 x x 2 x3 x3 = 144 LCM = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 630

:. LCM of 16 and 18 = 144 :. LCM of 90, 105 and 210 is = 630.

Given that the numbers are expressed as a product of prime factors, the lcmis the product of the prime factors of the numbers without double counting.

Example 2

A: COMMON FRACTIONS

A fraction is a number which is represented by one integer – the numerator – divided by another integer – the denominator ( or the divisor).

Simply put, a fraction is a part of a whole number. It is not always possible to use whole numbers to describe parts of quantities. It is therefore, important to know that to describe parts of quantities, fraction is used for example.

GENERAL FORM OF A FRACTION

From the explanation given above, we can write fraction in the form

a/b where

a = the numerator

b= the denominator

Fraction is divided into

1. Common (Vulgar) Fractions

Here, the fraction is written as one number over another .

Numerator is the term given to the number on the top part of a fractions.

Denominator is the term given to the number at the bottom part of a fraction .For example

9 Numerator

11 Denominator

II. Decimal Fractions

Decimal fractions are simply called decimal numbers. It has numbers to the left and right of a decimal point. See week 5 for detail.

B.Types of Fractions (Common)

Common fractions are grouped under three headings. becausefractions are written as one integer divided by another – a ratio – they are called rational numbers.

Fractions are either proper,improper or mixed.

1.Proper Fractions : This is a common fraction having its numerator less than its denominator. Example

(a) 4/7 (b) 3/5 (c) 2/5 etc

2 Improper Fraction: This is a common fraction having its numerator greater than its denominator .examples.

11/5 (b) 4/3 39/11  (d) etc

3. Mixed Numbers: This type of fraction is in the form of an integer and a fraction. That is it has two parts.

– a whole number, and

– a fraction (usually a proper fraction)

Example is shown in the figure below

From the diagram, we can describe the fraction as 1 ½ oranges

Where,

1=whole number part and

½ = fractional part

EVALUATION

1.Give five examples each of the types of fraction

2. Using the shapes/figures below, write out the fraction stating whether it is a proper, improper or a mixed fraction.

2. New General Mathematics for JSS1 by M.F Macraeetalpg 29 – 30.

3. Simple Conversions: Conversions can be made from improper fractions to a mixed fraction and vice versa .Lets see some examples.

Example 1

Express the following improper fractions as mixed fractions

(a) 4/3    (b) 57/10  (c ) 93/20  (d) 113/ 3

Solution

(a)   = = = 1 + =

Alternatively, divide the numerator by the denominator and express the remainder as the numerator of the fractional part of the mixed fractions. The number of times the numerator can be divided before the remainder is the whole number part.

Hence, 4 = 4 ÷ 3 = 1 remainder 1

3

= = 1 1/3

(b) 57/10 = = 50/10 + 7/10 = 5 + 7/10 = 57/10

(c )93/20 (d) 113/3

= 80 + 13 = 111 + 2

20 3

80 +13 = 111 + 2

20 20 3 3

= 4 + 13/20 = 37+ 2/3

= 4 13/20 = 37 2/3

Example 2

Conversion from Mixed numbers to Improper Fraction

Let A be the general form of a mixed number, where

A = whole number part

x/y = fractional part.

To convert to improper fraction, the following steps are followed.

1.Multiply the denominator of the fractional part by the whole number

2. Add the numerator of the fractional part to the result in (1) above.

3. Express the result in (2) above as the numerator of the improper fraction with the original denominator of the fractional part as the same denominator.

A = A y + x

II.Equivalent Fractions in Sharing Commodities

Problems involving sharing of commodities can be resolved with the knowledge of fractions. Some examples below will help us to understand this aspect of fraction.

Example1

Some notebooks where shared into 18 equally. If 5 exercise books were given to Ojo, what fraction is left?

Solution

Number of notebooks =18

Ojo’s share = 6

Number left = 18 – 6 = 12

Fraction left =12/18 = 12/18 ÷ 6/6

= 2/3

Example 2

Amarket woman had 90 yams. She sold2/3 of it. How many yam did she sell?

Solution

No of yams  = 90

No sold  = 2/3 of 90

= 2/3 x 90 = 2 x 30

= 60 yams

:. 60 yams where sold.

Examples

Some oranges were shared out. Olu got 3/8of them. He gave 5 to his brother and 4 to her sister and had 6 left. How many oranges were there altogether?

Solution

Fraction received by Olu = 3/8

No of oranges he gave out = 5 + 4 = 9

No of oranges left with him = 6 = 9 + 6 = 15.

As equivalent fraction, 3/8 =15/? = 3 x 5 =15/40.

8 x 5

:.40oranges were there altogether.

Example 4

In a shop, the price of a radio is reduced by one third .If the original price of the radio is N24, 000 what is the reduced price?

Solution

Original price = N2400

1/3 of this price = 1/3 x 2400 =N800

reduced price =2400- 800 = N1600.

Ordering of Fractions

It is much easier to compare the size of fractions, when they have the same denominator.

Example 1

Which is the larger fraction: 5/7 or 6/8?

Solution

= 5/7 or6/8

to have a common denominator

= 5/7 x 8/8 or6/8 x 7/7

= 40/56 or 42/56

hence 6/8 is larger than 5/7,

Examples

Which has the greater mass: 3054g or 3.56kg

Solution

= 3054g or 3.56kg

= 3054kg or 3.56kg

1000

= 3.054kg or 3.56kg

therefore, 3.56kg is greater than 3054kg

Examples

Which is the larger fraction in this pairs?

a. 3 21/50 or 3 31/60 b. 37/45 or19/24

“Per cent’ means per hundred or ‘out of ‘hundred’ or ‘in every hundred’. For example, when we say a student obtained 63 percent in a test, what we mean is that he or she had 63 marks out of 100 marks this is usually written as 63%. Where the symbol % means per cent.

a. Converting From percentage to fraction.

Here, the given value in percentage is divided by 100.

A% = in fraction or A ÷ 100, A x 1/100.

Express the following as a fraction in its simplest form

i. 30% ii. 75% iii.7 ½ % iv. 13 ¾ %

Solution.

i. 30% = 30 = 3

100 10

ii. 75% = = ¾

iii. 7 ½ % = 15 = 3

100 x 2 40

iv. 13 ¾ % = 55 x 1 = 11

4 x 100 80

b. Converting a percentage into a decimal

To convert a percentage to a fraction divide the percentage by 100.

Examples

Change these to decimals

I 45% ii. 34 ¾ % iii. 5.8%

Solution

i.45% = 45/100 = 0.45

ii.34 ¾ %= 34.75/100 = 0.3475

iii.5.8% = 5.8/100 = 0.0058.

c. Converting a fraction into percentage

To convert a fraction into a percentage, multiply it by 100.

Examples

Express these fractions as percentages

i. ¼ ii.25/400 iii. 5/8

Solution

¼ = ¼ x 100% = 25%

ii. 125/400 = 125 x 100

400 = 125/4 = 31.25%

iii. 5/8 = 5/8 x 100 % =500/6 = 62.5%.

d. Converting a decimal into a percentage.

To change a decimal to a percentage multiply it by 100

Example.

Express the following as a percentage

a.0.75 b.0.045

Solution

a.0.75 =0.75 x 100 = 75

b. 0.048 =0.048 x 100 = 4.8%.

e.Finding the percentage of a quantity

To find the percentage of a quantity, express the percentage as a fraction, then multiply by the quantity.

Examples

=N1116/100 =N11.16.

ii. 20% of N250

= 20/100 x 250

=N50.

f.Expressing one quantity as a percentage of another .

To express one quantity as percentage of another write, the first quantity as fraction of the second and then multiply by 100.

Examples

i.8 students did not do their assignments in a class of 40.

a. What is this as a percentage?

b. What percentage of the class did their assignment?

Solution

a. Writing the first quantity as a fraction of the second gives 8/40.

Multiply the fraction by 100

Therefore, 8/40 x 100= 2 x 10 = 20%

20% of the student did not do their assignment .

c.Those who did their assignment were:

40 -8 = 32 students 32/40 x 100 = 32/ 4 x10 =80

80% did their assignments.

2.What percentage of N5 is 150 kobo?

Solution

Convert N5 to kobo first.

N5 = 5 x 100 = 500kobo

Expressing as a fraction , we have 150/500

Therefore, 150 x 100

501

the percentage is 30%

3.What percentage of 15km is 20,000cm?

Solution

Convert both quanities to same unit first

1 km = 100,000cm

15km = 100000 x 15 =1500 000cm

Expressing as a fraction 20000/1500 000

Then multiply by 100

20 000/1500 000 x 100 = 20/15 = 1.33%

EVALUATION

1. Calculate the following :

(a) 5% of N500 (b) 18% of 144km.

III.Converting Fractions to Decimal

To convert a fraction into decimal first re-write the number as a decimal then divide it by the denominator

Terminating decimal

When the denominator divides exactly into numerator a terminating decimal is obtained.

Example

Change ¾ into a terminating decimal number

Solution

¾ = 0.75.

Recurring or Repeating Decimals

Sometimes when changing fractions to decimal gives the same figure or group figures repeating themselves on and on. These types of fraction are called non-terminating decimals or recurring decimals.

Examples

Change the following into decimals :

(a) 4/9 (b) 6/11

Solution

a. 4/9 = 0.444

TOPIC : ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION OF FRACTIONS

CONTENT

i. Introduction

iii. Subtraction of Fractions

iv. Further Examples.

I. Introduction

Two or more fractions can be added or subtracted immediately if they both possess the same denominator, in which case we add or subtract the numerators and divide by the common denominator . For example

2/5 + 1/5 = 2 + 1 = 3/5

5

If they do not have the same denominator they must be rewritten in equivalent form so that they do have the same denominator – called the common denominator e.g

2/7 + 1/5 = 10/35 + 7/35 = 10 + 7 = 17

35 35.

The common denominator of the equivalent fraction is the LCM of the two original denominator that is,

2/7 + 1/5 = 5 x 2 + 7 x 1 = 10 + 7 = 10 + 7 = 17

5 x 7 7 x 5 35 35 35 35

From the explanation, the above example has its LCM = 35.

Can you try this,

5/8 + 1/6 ?

Summary

If fractions have different denominators:

1. Find a common denominator by expressing each fractions as an equivalent fraction
2. Add or subtract their numerators.

Example: Simplify the following fractions

(a) ¼ + ½ (b) 2/3 + 5/6 (c) 2/5 + ½ + ¼

Solution

a. ¼ + ½ = ¼ + 2 x 1 = ¼ + 2 = 1+ 2 = 3

2 x 2 4 4 4

(b) 2 + 5 = 2 x 2 + 5 = 4 + 5 = 4 + 5 = 9 = 1 3/6

TOPIC : MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION

1. Simple Examples on Multiplication and Division of Fractions
2. Harder Examples
3. Word Problems.
4. Prime Numbers and Fractions

Introduction

Multiplication of fractions is simply a direct method compared to division of fractions. In multiplication, there is direct multiplication of the numerator of one fraction with the other and the denominator with the other.

Division is usually technical as there is reversal of the sign ( ÷) to multiplication sign 9x ) thereby leading to the reciprocal of the right-hand value.

A x x = A x α

B y B x y

But A ÷ x = A x y = Ay

B y B x Bx.

BODMAS

When signs are combined as a result of combination of fractons, it is therefore important to apply some rules that will enable us know where to start from. Such guide is BODMAS. It states that when there is combination of signs, they should be taken in order of their arrangement

B= bracket

O= of

D= division

M= multiplication

S= subtraction.

A prime number is a number that has only two factors, itself and 1. Some examples are 2,3,5,7,11,13,…

1 is not a prime number because it has only one factor, that is, itself unlike 2 which has itself and 1 as its factors. All prime numbers are odd numbers except 2 which is an even number.

Example 1

Write out all prime numbers between I and 30

Solution

Between 1 and 30.

Prime numbers = 2,3,5,7,119………..

1 is not a prime number because it has only one factor, that is, itself unlike 2 which has itself and 1 as its factors. All prime numbers are odd numbers except 2 which is an even number.

Example 1

Write out all prime numbers between I and 30

Solution

Between 1 and 30.

Prime numbers = 2,3,5,7,11, 13, 17,19,23,29.

II. Factors

A factor of a given number is a number which divides the given number without leaving any remainder. For instance, 10÷ 2 = 5 without a remainder, therefore, we say 5 is a factor of 10. Thus, we say that 3 is not a factor of 10.

Example 1

Find the factors of 32

Solution

32 = 1 x 32 =2 x 16 =4x 8

= 8 x 4 = 16 x 2 = 32 x 1

:. Factors of 32 = 1, 2,4,8, 16, and 32 or

Using table

32 1 x 32

2 x 16

4 x 8

Factors of 32 = 1, 2,4,8, 16 and 32

Note; A case were you have a particular number occurring two times, duplication is not allowed. Pick it once. See the example below;

Example 2

Factors of 120 = 1,2,3,4,5,6,8, 10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60 and 120.

Prime Factors:

From our definition of prime numbers, it will be easy joining factor to it and getting the meaning of prime factors.

Prime factors of a number are the factors of the number that are prime.

To find the prime factors of a number.

1.Start by dividing the number with the lowest number that is its factor and progress in that order.

2. If you divide with a particular number, check if it can divide the new number again before moving to the next prime number.

Example 1

Express the following whole numbers as product of prime factors.

(a) 12 (b) 18 (c) 880 (d) 875.

Solution

EVALUATION

Express the following as product of prime numbers

1. 108
2. 216
3. 800
4. 900
5. 17325

Index Form

If we have to write the following 4, 18, 16 as a product of prime factors, it will pose no challenge

4 = 2 x 2

8 = 2 x 2 x 2

16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

As their products increase, the challenge of how to write 2 or whichever number is multiplying itself will arise.

A way of writing this in a shorter form is called index form.

The general form is xn

Where x = the base, that is the multiplicative value and

n=index or power or the number of times a particular number multiplies itself.

Example 1

Express the following index

1. 3 x 3 x 3 x 3
2. 5 x 5 x 5
3. 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

Solution

(a) 3 x 3 x 3 x 3, this shows that four 3’s are to be multiplied together.

Writing index form

= X n

x = 3, n = 4

:. 3 4

(b) 5 x 5 x 5 = three 5’s in general form Xn

= x =5, n = 3

= 5 3

(c) 2 x 2 x2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

= seven 2’s

= X n.

x = 2, n =7

= 2 7

As product of primes

800 …… 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 5

800 = 25 . 52

2   90 3   117

3   45 3   39

3   15 3 13

5   5 13   1

720 = 2 x 2 x2 x 2 x3 x 2 x 5 1404 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x3 x 13

= 24x 32 x 5  = 22 x33 x 13

Rounding off Number

Estimation is making guess of the nearly correct calculation in distance, weight, price or capacity of things without the actual measurement or calculation. Even though it is not accurately done, it gives a good idea of the correct answer.

Estimation help us to have a rough idea of the answer when we add, subtract, multiply or divides given quantity. Sometimes rounding off numbers and approximation are used in making estimation.

B. Rounding Off Number

Example;

1, Round 1234 to the nearest 10

II. Round 1834 to the nearest hundred

III. Round these numbers to the nearest thousands

1. 3512 (b) 4265

Solution to the examples:

i. 1234 = 1230 to the nearest ten

ii. 1834 = 1800 to the nearest hundred

iii. 3512 = 4000 to the nearest thousand

iv. 4265 = 4000 to the nearest thousand.

2. Rounding Off Numbers to a Specific number of Decimal Places

Solution.

i. 13.73 = 14 to the nearest whole number

ii. 34.245 = 34 to the nearest whole number.

3 Significant Figure:The word significant means important and it is another way of approximating numbers. A figure position in a numbers. A figure’s position in a number show what the figure worth.

Note; That the first significant is always the first non-zero figure as you read a number from left. Again notice that zeros in the middle of a number are significant . Zero before or at the end of another are significant. Measurements and currencies are usually given to a specified number of significant figures.

Examples.

i. Give 5754 correct to

(a) 1. s.f  (ii) 2. s.f  (iii) 3. s.f.

II. Dimension and Distances, Capacity and Mass

The common units of length(i.e km, m,cm, mm) mass (i.etonne, kg. g ) capacity (i.e cl.ml) and time (hour, min. seconds ) are widely used. The most common unit for length are millimeter(mm) centimeter (cm). Meter(m) and centimeter for short length and the higher units (meter and kilometer) for larger distances.

The common units of mass are the gramme(g), kilogramme kg and tone (t). The common units of capacity and the milliliter (ml) centiliter (cl) and litre (l) as unit length, we use the lower units for smaller quantities.

It is important to be able to choose the most appropriate meter units of measurement to use. For example to measure distance less than a metre,smaller such as millimeter (mm) and centimeters are used. To measure a large distance metres (m) a kilometers (km) are used.

For example;

i. to measure the distance between Lagos and Benin City, we use km.

ii. to measure the height of a man, we use meters and centimeter.

iii. to measure the time it will take to run 200m, we use seconds etc.

Costing:

It is important to know the prices of items or goods in your area. This will enable you know the best place to buy a particular item at a reasonable price. In general, the more you buy the more you must pay.

Examples.

1.James bought 5 exercise books at a bookshop at N50.50 each> How much did he spend.

Solution

1. 1 exercise book cost = N50.50

therefore 5 exercise books will cost N50.50 x 5 = N225.50.

That means he spent N252.25

2. one candle cost 19C. Calculate the cost of five candles.

Solution

1 candle cost 19C

therefore 5 candles will cost 19C x 5 =95C

3. Find the cost of three tins of margarine at N48.00per tin
