*WEEK 3 & 4* FRACTIONS (TYPES OF FRACTIONS)

*WEEK 3 & 4*CONTENT:

A Fraction is a portion or part of a whole. Imagine a whole as a complete object. For example, the pie below is a whole which can be cut into sectors (or slices) representing different fractions as follows:

**Whole (1)** ** ** ** half (1/2)** ** three- quarters (3/4)**

__Types of fraction__

r: ½, ¼, ¾, 3/8 and 5/8 are called fraction. One number over another. Numerator is the term given to the number on the top part of a fraction. De nominator is the term given to the number at the bottom part of a fraction.*Common fractions or vulga*

** **

**Decimal fractions**: are simply called decimals example 0.897, 7.864 etc.**Proper fraction**: the numerator is less than the denominator. e.g. 2/5, ¼,ect**An improper fraction**the numerator is greater than the denominator e.g 8/3, 12/5 etc.

*CHANGING AN IMPROPER FRACTION TO A MIXED NUMBER*

**EXAMPLE 1**: Change 15/4 to a mixed number.

**Solution**

= = + = =

** **

**Example 2**: change to improper fraction.

**Solution**:

= = =__ __=

__EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS__

Fraction that have the same value are said to be equivalent. Example are ½, 2/4, 3/6, 4/8, 5/10, 6/12 etc.

Example 1: convert 2/9 into an equivalent fraction with the denominator 54

Solution:

2/9 = /54 (divide the second denominator by the first denominator to obtain the multiplier)

54/9 =6

Therefore use the 6 to multiply 2/9= 12/54

2/9 =12/54

Finding the missing part of these fractions: /10 =12/= = 20/50 = / 80

Solution

Step 1 Use 20/50 as your reference fraction because both its numerator and denominator are given. 20/50 = 2/5

10/5 (use the 5 of denominator to get your numerator of /10) =2

Therefore use 2 to multiple both 2/5 =4/10

Step 2 use the 2 to divide the numerator of 12/ to get 6 and use the 6 to multiply 2/5 = 12/30

Step 3: use 5 to divide the denominator of 80 to get 16

Therefore use 16 to multiply 2 / 5 = 32 /80

So 4/10 = 12/30 = 20/50 =32/80.

*DO THESE*

- Express each of the following fractions as a mixed numbers: (a) 9/5 (b) 15/2
- Express each of the following fractions as improper fraction: (a) 11/2

(b) 43/8

- Copy and complete each of the following: 3/5 = /15 (b) 4/7 = 12/y = y/35 = y/49 = 44/y where y =

##### WEEK 5 FRACTIONS (CONVERTION FROM PERCENTAGE TO DECIMAL AND DECIMAL TO FRACTION)

CONTENT: To convert a fraction into a decimal, first rewrite the numerator as a decimal, then divide it by the denominator.

Example 1 (a) change into a terminating decimal number (b) to decimal fraction

Solution:

- Numerator 3 can be written I decimal number as 3.0 or 3.00 0r 3.000

= 0.75 I,e 4 divide 3, then add zero, 4 goes in 30 is ,it remain 2, add 0 to make it 20 and 4 in 20 gives 5

Therefore = 0.75

- 8 divies 5,it becomes 0,then add zero to make it 50,it gives 6, it remains 2, add zero it becomes 20, 8 divides 20 is 2, it remains 4, add zero to gives 40, 8 in 40 is 5

Therefore = 0.625.

CONVERTING DECIMALS TO FRACTIONS

To change a decimal into a fraction, count the digits after the decimal, then divide by the appropriate power of 10,i.e 10,100,1000.

Example : convert each of the following decimal numbers into a fraction in lowest term:

- 067 (b) 0.64

Solution

(a) 0.067 = (3 digits after the decimal point i.e divide by 1000)

(b) 0.64 = (as above information) divide through by 4 =

**CONVERTING PERCENTAGE TO FRACTIONS**

PERCENTAGE IS A SPECIAL TYPE OF FRACTION WITH 100 AS DENOMINATOR. THUS, TO CHANGE A PERCENTAGE TO A FRACTION, DIVIE BY 100.(%)

Example 1: express each of the following as a fraction in its simplest form:

- 30% (b) 45% (c)
**16**1/2 %

Solution

- 30% = 30/100 i.e the zeros cancel each other. the answer is 3/10
- 45% = 45/100 i.e 5 divide both it gives 9 / 20.
- 16 ½ = 39/200 i.e you change the mixed number to improper fraction and then multiply it by %.

*WEEK 6*

*OPERATIONS ON FRACTIONS *

**ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION**

Example 1: Find the value of the following (a) (b) (c)

Solution:

(a): = (since the denominator are the same we just add the numerator together)

(b): ) = ) (since the denominator are the same we just subtract the numerator from each other)

*Try question C yourself*

Example 2: simplify the following (a) (b) )

Solution:

(a)

(198 + 15 + 34)/24 = (find the L C m of the fraction then add the whole together, the L C M is 24)

= (247/24) = (convert the improper fraction to mixed numbers)

(b)

Solution:

(rearrange by separating the whole numbers from fractions)

= (same denominator)

**WEEK 8**

**MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION OF FRACTION**

Example 1: Simplify the following (a) 4/5 * 2/3 (b) what is the product of 35/17, 2 5/6 and 4/8

- 3/5 ÷ 4/9 (d) 24/5 * 56/8 ÷ 51/9

Solution:

- 4/5 * 2/3 = 8/15( multiple the numerator and denominator together)
- (b) what is the product of 35/17, 2 5/6 and 4/8 = 56/17 * 17/6 *4/8

= 17 divides 17, 6 divides 56 also 4 divides 8

= 14/3 = 42/3

- 24/5 * 56/8 ÷ 51/9= 14/5 * 46/8 * 9/46(change to improper and also change the division sign to multiplication and also change the fraction up and down)

= 14/5 * 46/8 * 9/46 (46 divides 46 etc)

= 63/20 = 33/20

**COMMON MULTIPLES AND FACTOR**

** **

A prime number is a number that can only divide itself. it has two factor which is 1 and itself. Examples of prime numbers are: 2 ,3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19 etc.

**Multiples:** A multiple of a number is obtained by multiplying it by any whole number. Example the multiple of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20 , 24 etc.

**Factors:** The factor of a number is the whole number that divides the number exactly.

**Example 1: **(a) find all the factors of 18

(b) State which of these factors are even

( c) state which of these factors are prime numbers

(d) Write the first three multiple of 18

**Solution**

- Factors of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, and 18
- The even numbers are 2, 6, and 18
- The prime numbers are 2 and 3

**Example 2:** Find the factor pairs of 56

**Solution: **

1 × 56

2 × 28

4 × 14

7 × 8

**Therefore the factors of 56 are; **1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 14, 28, and 56.

**Product of a Prime Factor**

A prime factor is a factor that is also a prime number. You can find the product of prime factors of a number using a prime factor tree method or using the method of dividing repeatedly by the prime numbers.

**Example 2:** Express the following numbers, 56 and 108, as products of prime factors in index form.

**Solution:**

Method 1: dividing repeatedly by using prime numbers

*WEEK 10**ESTIMATION*

Estimation may be explained as a rough or sensible guess fo a value or calculation. Although, the estimated value is not correct, it gives us an idea of what the correct answer should be.

The common units of length are kilometer (km), meters (m), centimeters (cm), millimeters (mm).Mass = (Tonne, kilogram (kg) gramme (g). Capacity = (litre (l), centiliter (cl), militre(ml)

It is important to be able to choose the most appropriate metric units of measurement to use.

Example: To measure distance less than a metre, smaller units such as milimetre (mm), and centimeter are used to measure large distance, metre and kilometer (km) are used.

State the metric units of the length you would use to measure the following:

(a). Length of your class room = metre (m0

(b). Length of your fingers nail = milimetre (mm)

(c). your height = centimeter (cm)

(d) Distance between Lagos and kaduna = kilimetre (km)

(e). the height of a building = metre (m)

*SIGNIFICANT: TO ROUNDOFF A NUMBER CHANGE 0,1,2,3,4 TO 0 WHILE 5,6,7,8,9 TO 1 AND ADD IT TO THE NEXT NUMBER*

Example 1: round off 492.763 to (a) 3 s.f (b) 3 s.f (c) 2 d.p (d) 4 d.p

Solution:

(a). 492.763 = 49 (since the third number is 2 it has change to zero)

(b). 492.763 = 493 (the 2 as change to 3 because 7 as change to 1 and been added to 2 to become 3)

(c).492.763 = 492.76 (in decimal point we count after the point).

(d). 492.763 = 492.7630(since the number is not upto 4d.p we add zero to it.)
