1 Bsic Arithmetic TERMINOLOGY Absolute vlue: The distce of umber from zero o the umber lie. Hece it is the mgitude or vlue of umber without the sig Directed umbers: The set of itegers or whole umbers f,,, 0,,,, f Epoet: Power or ide of umber. For emple hs bse umber of d epoet of Ide: The power of bse umber showig how my times this umber is multiplied by itself e.g. # #. The ide is Idices: More th oe ide (plurl) Recurrig deciml: A repetig deciml tht does ot termite e.g. 0. is recurrig deciml tht c be writte s frctio. More th oe digit c recur e.g Scietific ottio: Sometimes clled stdrd ottio. A stdrd form to write very lrge or very smll umbers s product of umber betwee d 0 d power of 0 e.g is.6 # 0 8 i scietific ottio

Whe umber is hlfwy, we roud it off to the lrger umber. ` to the erest hudred I this course you will eed to roud off decimls, especilly whe usig trigoometry or logrithms. To roud umber off to certi umber of deciml plces, look t the et digit to the right. If this digit is or more, dd to the digit before it d drop ll the other digits fter it. If the digit to the right is less th, leve the digit before it d drop ll the digits to the right. EXAMPLES. Roud off 0.68 correct to deciml plce. Add to the 6 s the 8 is greter th. Solutio # ` correct to deciml plce. Roud off 0.68 correct to deciml plces. Drop off the d ll digits to the right s is smller th. Solutio # ` correct to deciml plces. Evlute 6.

6 Chpter Bsic Arithmetic FIX KEY Use MODE or SET UP to fi the umber of deciml plces (see the istructios for your clcultor). This will cuse ll swers to hve fied umber of deciml plces util the clcultor is tured off or switched bck to orml. While usig fied umber of deciml plces o the disply, the clcultor still keeps trck iterlly of the full umber of deciml plces. EXAMPLE Clculte. '. # correct to deciml plces. Solutio.

I buildig, egieerig d other idustries where ccurte mesuremets re used, the umber of deciml plces used idictes how ccurte the mesuremets re. For emple, if. m legth of timber is cut ito 8 equl prts, ccordig to the clcultor ech prt should be 0.08 m. However, mchie could ot cut this ccurtely. A legth of. m shows tht the mesuremet of the timber is oly ccurte to the erest mm (. m is mm). The cut pieces c lso oly be ccurte to the erest mm (0.0 m or 0 mm). The error i mesuremet is relted to roudig off, s the error is hlf the smllest mesuremet. I the bove emple, the mesuremet error is hlf millimetre. The legth of timber could be ywhere betwee 0. mm d. mm. Directed Numbers My studets use the clcultor with work o directed umbers (umbers tht c be positive or egtive). Directed umbers occur i lgebr d other topics, where you will eed to remember how to use them.

Eve the 6 people re ot sigifict. Whe compy mkes profit of $ 0.8, the mout of 8 cets is ot ectly sigifict sum! Nor is the sum of $.8. To roud off to certi umber of sigifict figures, we cout from the first ozero digit. I y umber, ozero digits re lwys sigifict. Zeros re ot sigifict, ecept betwee two ozero digits or t the ed of deciml umber. Eve though zeros my ot be sigifict, they re still ecessry.
