**BASIC OPERATION OF INTEGERS**

- Definition
- Indices
- Laws of Indices

**Definition of Integer**

An integer is any positive or negative whole number

**Example:**

Simplify the following

(+8) + (+3) (ii) (+9) – (+4)

Solution

(+8) + (+3) = +11 (ii) (+9) – (+4) = 9-4 = +5 or 5

**Evaluation**

Simplify the following

(+12) –(+7) (ii) 7-(-3)-(-2)

**Indices**

The plural of index is indices

10 x 10 x 10= 10^{3} in index form, where 3 is the index or power of 10. P^{5}=p x pxpxpxp. 5 is the power or index of p in the expression P^{5}.

**Laws of Indices**

1. Multiplication law:

a^{x} x a^{y} = a^{x+y}

E.g. a^{5}xa^{3}=a x a x a x a x a x a x a x a =a^{8}

y^{1 }x y^{4}=y^{ 1+4}

= y^{5}

a^{3 }x a^{5 }= a^{3 + 5 }= a^{8}

4c^{4 }x 3c^{2}

= 4 x 3 x c^{4 }x c^{2 }=12 x c^{4+2}=12c^{6}

**Class work**

Simplify the following

(a) 10^{3 }x 10^{4 }(b) 3 x 10^{6 }x 4 x 10^{2 }(c) p^{3 }x p (d) 4f^{3 }x 5f^{7 }

**Division law**

(1) a^{x }÷ a^{y }= a^{x }÷ a^{y }= a^{x-y}

**Example**

Simplify the following

- a
^{7}÷a^{3}=a x a x a x a x a x a x a ÷ a x a x aa

^{7-3}=a^{4}

(2) 10^{6}÷10^{3}=10^{6}÷10^{3}=10^{6-3}=10^{3}

(3) 10a^{7}÷2a^{2}=10a^{7}÷2a^{2}=5a^{7-2}=5a^{5}

**Class work**

Simplify the following

1. 10^{5}÷10^{3} 2. 51m^{9}÷3m (3) 8×10^{9}÷4×10^{6 }

**Zero indexes**

a^{x }÷ a^{x }=1

**By division law** a^{x-x}=a^{0}

a^{0}=1

E.g. 100^{0 }=1

50^{0}=1

**Negative index**

a^{0 }÷ a^{x }= 1/a^{x}

But by division law, a^{0-x}=a^{-x}

Therefore, a^{-x}=1/a^{x}

**Example**

1. Simplify (i) b^{-2} (ii) 2^{-3}

**Solution**

b^{-2} = 1/ b^{2 } (ii) 2^{-3} = 1/2^{3 }= 1/2x2x2 = 1/8

**Class work**

(1) 10^{-2} (2) d^{0 }x d4 x d^{-2 }(3) a^{-3}÷a^{-5} (4) (1/4)^{-2}

(5) [a^{m}]^{n }= a^{mxn }= a^{mn}.

[Power of index]

E.g. [a^{2}]^{4}=^{ }x a^{2 }x a^{2 }x a^{2 }= a x a x a x a x a x a x a x a=a^{8}

Therefore. a^{2×4}=a^{8.}

(6) [mn]^{ a}=m ^{a}x n^{a }= m^{a}n^{a}. e.g. [4+2x]^{ 2}=4^{2}+2^{2}xx^{2}_{ }=

16+4x^{2}=4[4+1xx^{2}] =4[4+x^{2}].

7 Fractional indexes

a^{m/n} =a^{1/n }x^{m}=^{n}√ am

Example

(a^{1/2})^{2} =a^{2/2}=a^{1}=a

(√a)^{2}=√a x √a =√a x a=√a^{2}=ae.g32^{1/5}=^{5}

√32^{1}

1. 32^{3/5 = 5}√2^{5×3 }= 2^{3 }=2x2x2 = 8

2. 27^{2/3}=^{3}√27^{2 }= 3^{2 }= 3x3x3 = 9 ^{ }

3. 4^{-3/2 }= √1/4^{3}= 1/2^{3}^{ }

4. (0001)^{3}

=1×10^{-3}

=(10^{-3)3=}10^{-3×3=}10^{-9}

= 1 .

1000000000

=0.000000001

8. (a^{m})^{p/q}=a^{mp}=√(a)^{p}

e.g. (16^{2})^{3/4}=√ (16^{2})^{3}

= (2^{2})^{3}

(4)^{3=}4x4x4 = 64

9. Equator of power for equal base

A^{x}=A^{y} That is x = y

**WEEK TWO**

**WHOLE NUMBERS AND DECIMAL NUMBERS**

- Whole Difference between Whole Numbers and Decimal Numbers
- Whole numbers in Standard Form and Decimal Numbers in Standard Form
- Factors, Multiples and Prime Numbers

**Difference between Whole Numbers and Decimal Numbers**

Whole number is a number without fraction. For example 1, 2, 3, 4…1000, 38888 are examples of whole numbers.71/2 is not a whole number. A decimal number is a fractional number less than 1. It is smaller to a whole number. Examples – 0.1,0.01,0.001etc

**Whole Numbers in Standard Form and Decimal Numbers in Standard Form**

Whole numbers in standard form are expressed in the form of A x 10^{n} such that A is a number between 1 and 10, n is a whole number.

Example

Express the following in standard form (a) 200 (b) 4100 (c) 300000

Solution

- 200 = 2 x 100 = 2×10
^{2} - 4100 = 4.1 x 1000 = 4.1 x 10
^{3} - 300000 = 3 x 100000 = 3 x 10
^{5}

**Evaluation**

Express the following in standard form (a) 500 (b) 36000 (c) 7200000

Decimal fractions such as 0.00 and 0.000001 can be expressed as powers of 10 e.g. 0.0001 = 1/10000 = 1/10^{4 }= 10^{-4 }

Thus, any decimal fraction can be expressed in a standard form e.g. 0.008=8/1000=8/10^{3 }=8×1/10^{3}=8×10^{-3}

Therefore, the number 8×10^{-3 }is in standard form ax10^{ }and n is a negative integer while A is a number between1 and 10

Example

Express the following in standard form (a) 0.0023 (b) 0.00034 (c) 0.125

Solution

- 0.023 = 23/1000 = 2.3/10
^{2}= 2.3 x 10^{-3} - 0.00034 34/100000= 3.4/10
^{4}= 3.4x 10^{-4} - 0.125 = 125/1000 = 1.25/10
^{1}= 1.25×10^{-1}

**Evaluation**

Express the following in standard form (a) 0.0067 (b) 0.00082 (c) 0.012

**FACTORS, MULTIPLES AND PRIME NUMBERS**

The factors of a number are the whole numbers that divide the number exactly. For example the factors of 10 are 1, 2 and 5.

A prime number has only two factors, itself and 1. The following are examples of prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11,13…. However, 1 is not a prime number.

A multiple of a whole number is obtained by multiplying it by any whole number.

**Example**

- Write down all the factors of 18.
- State which of theses factors are prime numbers
- Write the first three multiples of 18
- Express 18 as a product of its prime factors in index form

**Solution:**

- Factors of 18:1, 2,3,6,9 and 18.
- Prime numbers of the factors of 18:2 and3
- The first three multiples of 18 are 1×18 = 18, 2×18=36, 3×18=54 => 18, 36 and 54.
- 18 = 2x3x3 = 2 x 3
^{2}in index form

**Example 2:**

- Write down all the factors of 22.
- State which of theses factors are prime numbers
- Write the first three multiples of 22

**Solution:**

- Factors of 22:1, 2, and 11.
- Prime numbers of the factors of 22: 2 and11
- The first three multiples of 22 are 1×22 = 22, 2×22=44, 3×22=66 => 22, 44 and 66.

**Proportion**

Proportion can be solved either by unitary method or inverse method. When solving by unitary method, always

- write in sentence the quantity to be found at the end.
- decide whether the problem is either an example of direct or inverse method
- find the rate for one unit before answering the problem.

**Examples**

- A worker gets N 900 for 10 days of work, find the amount for (a) 3 days (b) 24 days (c) x days

**Solution**

For 1 day = N 900

1 day = 900/10 = N90

a. For 3 days =3 x 90 = 270

b. For 24 days = 24×90 = N 2,160

c. For x days =X x 90 = N 90 x

**Inverse Proportion**

Example

- Seven workers dig a piece of ground in 10 days. How long will five workers take?

**Solution**

For 7 workers =10 days

For 1 worker =7×10=70 days

For 5 workers=70/5 =14 days

- 5 people took 8 days to plant 1,200 trees, How long will it take 10 people to plant the same number of trees

**Solution**

For 5 people =8 days

For 1 person =8×5=40 days

For 10 people =40/10 =4 days

**Class Work**

- A woman is paid N 750 for 5 days, Find her pay for (a) 1 day (b) 22 days
- A piece of land has enough grass to feed 15 cows for x days. How long will it last (a) 1 cow (b) y cows
- A bag of rice feeds 15 students for 7 days .How long would the same bag feed 10 students

Note on direct proportion: this is an example of direct proportion .The less time worked (3 days) the less money paid (#270) the more time worked (24 days) the more money paid (N N 2,160)

**Ratio**

Ratio behaves the same way as fraction. Ratios are often used when sharing quantities..

**Example**

600/800=600/800=3/4

300-400=600-800=1200-1600=3=4

**Example**

1. Express the ratio of 96 c: 120c as simple as possible

Solution 96c: 120c=96/120=4/5=4.5

2. Fill in the gap in the ratio of 2:7=28

**Solution** let the gap be X

2/7 = X/28

7X =2 x 28

X=2 x 28/7

X=2 x 4

X = 8

- Two students shared 36 mangoes in the ratio 2:3 How many mangoes does each student get?

**Solution**

Total ratio =2+3=5

First share=2/5×35/1=21 mangoes

**Rate**

Rate is the change in one quantity to the other. Examples are 45km/hr, a km, 1 litre etc

Worked examples

- A car goes 160 km in 2 hrs what is the rate in km/hr?

**Solution**

In 2 hrs the car travels 160 km

In 1 hr the car travels 160/2=80km

Therefore the rate of the car is 80km/hr

- A car uses 10 litres of petrol to travel 74 km. Express its petrol consumption as a rate in km per litre.

**Solution**

**WEEK FIVE**

**SIMPLE INTEREST**

Interest is the money paid for saving a particular amount of money.

Simple interest can be calculated using the formula

Simple interest I = PRT

100

Where P= principal, R=rate & T= time

Also total amount =principal +interest

**Example 1**

Find the simple interest on N60, 000 for 5 years at 9% per annum

Solution

Applying I=PRT P= N 60,000 R=9% T=5 years

100

I = 60,000x9x5

100

= N 27,000

**Example 2**

A man borrows N 1,600,000 to buy a house .He is charged interest at the rate of 11% per annum. In the first year, he paid the interest on the loan. He also paid back N 100,000 of the money borrowed. How much did he pay back altogether? If he paid this money by monthly instalment, how much did he pay per month?

**Solution**

P= N 1,600,000 R=11% T=1 year

Interest on N 1,600,000 I =PRT =1’600,000 x11x1 = N 176,000

100 = 100

The total amount paid in the first year= N 100,000 + N 176,000 = N 276,000

Monthly payment =276.000 = N 23,000

1. Find the simple interest on the following:

a. N 10,000 for 31/2 years at 4% per annum

b. N 20,000 for 4 years at 4% per annum

2. A man got N 1,800,000 loan to buy a house .He paid interest at a rate of 9% per annum. In the first year, he paid the interest on the loan. He also paid back N 140,000 of the money he borrowed. (a) How much did he pay in the first year altogether.

**Profit and loss percent**

Profit means gain, while loss is the inverse of profit.

% Profit is the percentage of the gain made from a particular product or item

% Profit = profit x 100

Cost price

To find the selling price of an article

At loss = cost price – loss

At gain= cost price + profit

**Example**

1. A trader buys a kettle for N 800 and sells at a profit of 15%. Find the actual profit and the selling price

**Solution**

Profit =15 of N 800

=15 x800

= N 120

Selling price = C. + profit

= 800+120

= N 920

2. A hat is bought for N 250 and sold for N 220, what is the loss percent

**Solution**

Cost price C.P = N 250

Selling price = N 220

Lost= N 250- N 220 = N** 30**

**% Loss =loss x100%**

C.P

=30/250 x100%

=300/25 =12%

**Class work**

- A car that cost N 336,000 was sold at a loss of 17½%. What is the selling price

**Discount and Commission**

A discount is a reduction in price of goods or items. Discount are often given for paying in cash

Commission: this is the payment for selling an item.

**Examples**

- Find the discount price, if a discount of 25% is given on a market price of #9,200

**Solution**

Discount =25% of N 9,200

=25/100 x9, 200=2,300

- A radio cost N 5,400 .A 12½% discount is given for cash. What is the cash price

**Solution**

Discount =12 ½% of N 5,400

= 25/2×100 x 5400

=25/2×100 x5400=675

Cash price = N 5,400-675 = N 4725

- A bank charges
**2**½ % commission for issuing a bank draft to its customers, if a customer obtained a bank draft for N 84,000 from the bank, calculates the total cost of the bank draft.

**Solution**

Solving Equation by Balance Method

To solve an equation means to find the values of the unknown in the equation that makes it true.

For example: 2x – 9 = 15.

2x – 9 is on the left hand side (LHS) and 15 is on the right hand side (RHS) of the equals signs.

Worked examples

- solve 3x = 12
- 2x – 9 = 15.

Solution

1.3x = 12

Divide both sides by 3

3x = 12

3 3

x = 4.

2. 2x – 9 = 5

add 9 to both sides since +9 is the additive inverse of (-9)

2x – 9 + 9 = 15 + 9

2x = 24

x = 24/2 = 12

**EVALUATION**

5x = 15

x = 15/3

x = 3

2. 5 (x + 11) + 2 ( 2x – 5) = 0

5x + 55 + 4x – 10 = 0

collect like terms

5x + 5x = 10 – 55

9x = -45

x = -45/9

x = -5.

**EVALUATION**

Solve the following :

1. 2 (x + 5) = 18 2. 6 (2s – 7) = 5s 3. 3x + 1 = 2(3x+5)

4. 8 (2d – 3) = 3 (4d – 7) 5. (y + 8 ) + 2 (y + 1) = 0.
