2 70 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Section. Recognizing, Reading, Writing and Simplifying Fractions What is a fraction? You have a circle. Cut it into two equal parts. Each part is called a half of a circle. Each part is a fraction of the circle. We can write a half as We now cut a circle into equal parts (fractions). Each part is called one fourth (or one quarter ) of a circle. We write this as If we take one part away, there are now three quarters left. We can write this as MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

3 RECOGNIZING, READING AND WRITING FRACTIONS 7 A fraction is made of two parts: The numerator tells you how many parts you have. The denominator tells you how many equal parts in total. Note that all of the parts in the fraction must be of equal size. There is part shaded, so the numerator is. There are total parts in the shape, so the denominator is. So the fraction shaded is. There are parts shaded, so the numerator is. There are total parts in the shape, so the denominator is. So the fraction shaded is. Don t forget that the parts must be of equal size!

4 7 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Practice What fraction is shaded in the shapes below? b) c) d) e) f) To write a fraction in words, we use numbers for the numerator, and ordinal numbers for the denominator. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

5 RECOGNIZING, READING AND WRITING FRACTION 7 Write the fractions in words. b) one-third c) d) 6 two-fourths two-quarters Practice Write the fractions in words. b) 8 c) 0 d) e) 9 f) or Exception when the denominator is, we do NOT say second. Instead, we say half (or the plural, halves, if there is more than one). one-half three-halves

6 7 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Write the fractions in words. b) c) two-thirds 8 Practice Write the words as fractions six-sevenths b) seven-tenths c) d) one-half e) f) three quarters Write the fractions found in the sentences. Seven out of ten people enjoy going swimming. b) Two of the seven Emirates begin with the letter A MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

7 PROPER FRACTIONS, IMPROPER FRACTIONS AND MIXED NUMBERS 7 Practice Write the fractions found in the sentences. b) Six of the seven Emirates joined at the same time in 97. c) Two of my three brothers like ice cream. d) e) Six of my nine notebooks are blue. = 9 = = 0 = whole 9 0 Practice Write the numerator to make each of the fractions below, equal to whole. 7 There are three different kinds of fractions; proper fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers. The numerator is less than the denominator. This is called a proper fraction. A proper fraction is less than one whole one.

8 76 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS 7 The numerator is greater than the denominator. This is called an improper fraction. An improper fraction is greater than one whole one. A proper fraction is less than one whole one. We can also write 7 as is called a mixed number. We have added a whole number to a fraction: + = whole fraction mixed numbers We say this as, one and three-quarters. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

9 PROPER FRACTIONS, IMPROPER FRACTIONS AND MIXED NUMBERS 77 State whether each of these is a proper fraction, an improper fraction, or as a mixed number. Then write the fraction in words. 9 7 Improper fraction Nine-sevenths b) 0 Proper fraction Five-tenths c) Mixed number Two and three-quarters Practice 6 State whether each of these is a proper fraction, an improper fraction, or as a mixed number. Then write the fraction in words. 7 6 b) c) d) e) 9 8 6

10 78 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Percent means out of % = 00 What percent of each diagram is shaded? Since there are a total of 00 squares, the denominator is 00. There are shaded squares, so the fraction is. 00 This means that % of the diagram is shaded. b) There are shaded squares, so the fraction is. 00 This means that % of the diagram is shaded. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

11 PERCENT FRACTIONS 79 Practice 7 What percent of each diagram is shaded? % b) % There are also special percentages and their related fractions and decimals that you should be able to remember: = = 0. = % 0 = = 0. = 0% = = 0.7 = 7% 00 = = 00% (one whole) 00 00

12 80 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Compare the diagrams below: We can say that,, and are all the same part of a whole. They are called equivalent fractions because they have the same value. They are equal. We use the sign = for (equal to) or (equivalent to): = or = Finding a fraction that is equal but with smaller numbers is called simplifying a fraction. This is done very easily with a calculator. 8 or 6 = 8 8 On a calculator the fraction button looks like this: a c b MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

13 SIMPLIFYING FRACTIONS WITH A CALCULATOR 8 Using your calculator, simplify the fractions. 9 Enter a c b b 9 = b) Enter a 0 c 0 = So with our calculator, we found that 9, or = 9, or =. 0 and that 0 Practice 8 Using your calculator, simplify the fractions. 0 b) 0 c) d) 0 e) 8 0 f) 8 9 g) 0 h) 00 0 simplest form?

17 READING AND WRITING DECIMALS 8 Section. Reading, Writing, Comparing and Rounding Decimals Do you recall learning about reading and writing whole numbers? Thousands Ones hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones 6 0 Our table shows that each place gets 0 times bigger as you move to the left. For example, hundred is ten times bigger than ten. thousand is 0 times bigger than hundred, and so on. This is the decimal system. We also use it for numbers that are smaller than one whole. Thousands Ones. Decimal hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones ttenths hundredths thousandths

18 86 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS As you move to the right, the tenths place comes after the ones place. 0. = one tenth We use a decimal point (. ) to separate the units and tenths place. Look carefully at the difference between the place names. All place names to the right of the decimal point end with th. tenth hundredth thousandth Thousands Ones. Decimal hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones ttenths hundredths thousandths Zero point seven two nine. For the number 0.79 above, write the place value of the digit. 7 tenths b) hundredths c) 0 ones d) 9 thousandths MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

19 READING AND WRITING DECIMALS 87 Practice For the number 0.8, write the place value of the digit. 0 b) c) 8 d) Write the numbers in the correct place on the table. Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones tenths hundredths thousandths.. Practise Write the numbers in the correct place on the table. Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones tenths hundredths thousandths

20 88 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Practice Write the place value of the underlined digit. 0.9 b) 7. c).8 d) Each digit after the decimal place is read separately. 0.8 is read as zero point four eight, and NOT zero point forty-eight is read as zero point seven two nine, and NOT zero point seven hundred twentynine. Write these numbers in words..6 three point six one. b).6 Practice Write these numbers in words. 0.8 b) 0. c).6 d) 7.89 There is also another way to read a decimal, by its place value. We use the place value furthest to the right to read the decimal. 0.8 is read as forty-eight hundredths because the digit furthest to the right (8) is in the hundredths place is read as seven hundred twenty-nine thousandths because the digit furthest to the right (9) is in the thousandths place. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

21 WRITING DECIMALS IN WORDS 89 Write these numbers in words reading the place value. 0. four tenths b) 0.6 sixty-one hundredths c) 0.6 two hundred thirty-six thousandths d) eight thousandths Practice Write these numbers in words reading the place value. 0.6 b) b) 0.6 If there is a whole number in front of the decimal point, we read that number and then say and instead of point before reading the decimal part of the number. Write these numbers in words reading the place value.. two and tenths b).9 Practice 6 Write these numbers in words reading the place value..7 b) 0.9 c) 9.6 d) 8.009

22 90 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Write these numbers in digits. zero point six two c) two hundred six point two zero six Practice 7 Write these numbers in digits. zero point eight eight b) nine point three six two c) seventy-eight point two If a number has more than decimal places, it can be written in groups of threes, just like with whole numbers. Recall: Whole Numbers Decimal Numbers We can read the decimal 0. as three tenths. We also read the fraction So, 0. = 0 as three tenths. 0 MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

23 COMPARING DECIMALS 9 Write these fractions and mixed numbers as decimals. c) 7 = 0. b) = = 0.06 d) 6 = Practice 8 Write these fractions and mixed numbers as decimals = b) 6 = 000 c) = d) = e) 00 = f) 000 = You have already studied equivalent fractions. For example: 0 = 0 00 = When you write these as decimals you see: = 0. = =

24 9 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Write equivalent decimals for these: 0.90, 0.,., tenths hundredths thousandths Practice 9 Write equivalent decimals for these: 0.7,.9, 0.800, 0.0 tenths hundredths thousandths We can also compare decimals, using the signs < or > or = Write the correct symbol, < or > or =, between these decimal numbers: Compare the 0. The tenths place is the 0. Since > we tenths place. same so we move to the have hundredths place. 0. > > 0. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

25 COMPARING DECIMALS 9 b) Compare the tenths place. Since 0 < we have 0.09 < < 0.07 c) The tenths place is the same so move to the hundredths place. The hundredths place is the same so look at the thousandths place The thousandths place has no digit. We know the value of this place is 0. The thousandths place has the value of. Since 0 < we have 0.97 < < 0.97 d) The tenths and the hundredths place have the same value. In the second number the thousandths place has no digit. We know the value of this place is = 0.97 These numbers are the same.

26 9 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Practice 0 Write the correct symbol, > or < = between these decimal numbers: b) c).87.9 d) e).0.0 f) We round decimals in a very similar way to whole numbers. The only difference when rounding decimals, instead of replacing digits to the right of the given place value with zeros, we remove those digits. Therefore the steps to rounding decimals are as follows: Rules for Rounding Decimals: Step Underline the digit of the given place value. Step Circle the digit to its right. Step If that circled digit is from 0 to, the digit in the given place stays the same. b) If that circled digit is from to 9, add to the digit in the given place. Step Remove all digits to the right of the given place. MATHS FOUNDATION

27 ROUNDING DECIMALS 9 Do you remember your decimal place values?. Decimal tenths hundredths thousandths. 7 9 Let s try an example rounding with decimals. = 0.79 Round 0. to the nearest tenth Step Underline the digit of the given place value (tenths). 0. Step Circle the digit to its right (). 0. Step If that circled digit is from 0 to, the digit in the given place stays the same. b) If that circled digit is from to 9, add to the digit in the given place. Step Remove all digits to the right of the given place value. 0.

28 96 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Round 0.76 to the nearest tenth. Step Underline the digit of the given place value (tenths) Step Circle the digit to its right () Step If that circled digit is from 0 to, the digit in the given place stays the same. Step b) If that circled digit is from to 9, add to the digit in the given place. (it is 6, so you add to the underlined digit 7 making it 8) Remove all digits to the right of the given place value.

61 EQUIVALENT RATIOS AND PROPORTIONS 9 In example c), the ratio included all circles, which means you must add the shaded circles and non-shaded circles together. Practice Use the shapes above to write the ratios. Write the ratios in three different ways. Description Ratio The ratio of shaded squares to non-shaded squares. b) The ratio of non-shaded squares to all squares. c) The ratio of all squares to all circles. d) The ratio of shaded circles to shaded squares. e) The ratio of all squares to non-shaded circles. The ratio of non- shaded squares to shaded squares is to. When we write this ratio in another form, it is. This means that there is non-shaded square for every shaded squares. The picture above still shows a ratio of non-shaded square for every shaded squares. Looking at all the squares together, the ratio of non-shaded squares to shaded squares is to. Since both ratios describe the same thing, they are called equivalent ratios. =

62 0 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Write equivalent ratios for the shapes in the diagram above. non-shaded squares to shaded squares = = 6 = 8 Practice Write equivalent ratios for the shapes in the diagram above. moons to stars = = = The order of a ratio is very important! For example, is not the same as. Let s look at the relationship between equivalent ratios. = = 6 = 8 Ratios are equivalent if they have their cross products are equal. 6 x = 6 and x 6 = 6, so these ratios are equivalent (equal). 8 x 8 = 6, and x =, so these ratios are not equivalent. When two or more ratios are equivalent, they are said to be in proportion. = 6 The above ratios are equivalent, so they are in proportion. MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

63 EQUIVALENT RATIOS AND PROPORTIONS Are the ratios equivalent (in proportion)? Show your work. and 0 x 0 = 0 x = 0 Yes, the ratios are in proportion (equivalent). b) and x = 8 x = 9 No, the ratios are not in proportion (not equivalent). Practice Are the ratios equivalent (in proportion)? Show your work. 6 and 9 b) c) and 0 and 6 d) e) 9 and 6 and

64 CHAPTER RATIONAL NUMBERS Very similar to simplifying fractions, we can simplify ratios. Recall simplifying fractions with your calculator. 0 = 0 and are equivalent (have the same value), but is in simplest form. The same is true for ratios. However be careful, because a ratio must always have parts, or terms! Simplifying the ratios: 6 = Simplifying the ratio is exactly the same as simplifying a fraction. b) 6 = If this were a fraction, it would simplify to. However we need to keep parts or terms, so it must remain as. Practice Simplify the ratios using your calculator. Be sure your answers have terms! 6 8 = b) 9 = c) = d) 0 = e) 0 = f) = 7 g) 6 0 = h) 8 = i) 6 = MATHEMATICS FOUNDATION

65 SOLVING PROPORTIONS We learned that a proportion is when ratios are equal to each other. For example, the ratios 6 and make a proportion because they are equal ( x 9 = 8; x 6 = 8). 9 We write a proportion like this: 6 = 9 6 = Since we know the cross products must be equal, we know that x = 8 x 6 = 8 Therefore, the missing value must be 9 ( x 9 = 8) To complete the proportion, it looks like this: 6 = 9 Complete the proportions. Show your work. = 8 x 8 = 8 x = 8 The missing number must be, because x = 8. The completed proportion is = 8 b) = 6 x 6 = 0 x = 0 The missing number must be, because x = 0. The completed proportion is = 6
