1 Revision Notes Adult Numeracy Level 2 Place Value The use of place value from earlier levels applies but is extended to all sizes of numbers. The values of columns are: Millions Hundred thousands Ten thousands Thousands Hundreds Tens Units tenths hundredths thousandths To make reading large numbers easier digits are grouped in threes from the decimal point so the number in the table is written: It is read aloud as: One million, two hundred and thirty-four thousand, five hundred and sixtyseven point eight, nine, one The number indicates that there are no ten-thousands, no hundreds and no tenths, but these digits may not be removed as this information is important to the place value of the other digits. Negative numbers lower numbers higher numbers Negative numbers are the numbers below zero. E.g. -5 is smaller than C is colder than -2 C 1

2 Calculations with numbers The methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of whole numbers and decimals are the same as for Level 1. Multiples The multiples of 12 are: 12, 24, 36, 48,60,72. Factors Factors are numbers which divide exactly into a given number. E.g. The factors of 12 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. Prime numbers Numbers that have no factors except the 1 and the number itself are called prime numbers. The prime numbers to 20 are: 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19 The number 1 is a particular case and is defined not prime Ratio and Proportion A ratio of 3 : 2 means that for three measures of the first ingredient, 2 measures of the second must be used E.g. A concrete mix uses cement : sand in the ratio 3 : 2 means Use 3 buckets of cement with 2 buckets of sand or Use 3 lorry-loads of cement with 2 lorry-loads of sand or Use 9 shovelfuls of cement with 6 shovelfuls of sand 2

3 Parts A party drink is made from a recipe that requires pineapple : orange : water in the ratio 2 :3 : 5 10 litres of drink is to be made. How much of each part will be needed? 2 parts of pineapple + 3 parts of orange + 5 parts of water = = 10 parts altogether So to make 10 litres use: 2litres of pineapple, 3 litres of orange and 5 litres of water To make 20 litres use: 4 litres of pineapple, 6 litres of orange and 10 litres of water Scale A scale of 1 : 1000 means that every unit on the drawing represents 1000 of the same units in real life. 1 cm on a drawing represents 1000cm (which is 10m) in real life. A scale of 1 : means that 1 cm on a map represents cm = 1000m = 1 km on the ground Formulae Letters are used to represent variable (changing) quantities in formulae. If a represents the quantity of one item 2a represents twice that quantity The is understood and need not be written. All other operating symbols (+,-, ) are always written. Similarly ab represents a b and 2(a +b ) = 2 (a + b) 3

4 Fractions When ordering or comparing fractions, the denominator (number on the bottom) of each fraction must be the same as it indicates the size of the fraction of the whole. E.g. Which is the bigger 9 7 or 6 5? Change both to a common denominator = = 6 18 so 6 5 is larger than 9 7 E.g. Place these fractions in order of size staring with the smallest. 2, , 15 The lowest common denominator is = = = so the order is ,, which is 3, 10 2,

5 Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Fractions decimals and percentages are all ways of expressing parts of a whole. A percentage is a fraction with denominator 100. Because it is such a common fraction it is written in a particular way: Fractions to decimals 17% is Change fractions to decimals by dividing the numerator by the denominator (use a calculator whenever necessary) 5 E.g. = 5 8 = Decimals to percentages Change decimals to percentages by multiplying by 100: = X 100% = 62.5% Writing fractions in simplest form Fractions are equivalent if they can be simplified to the same fraction E.g = Because both the numerator (15) and the denominator 18 6 (18) have 3 as a factor. Similarly 20 4 = Numerator and denominator both have a factor of Some fractions will not simplify: 17 Example: 40 The number 17 is a prime. Thus its only factors are 1 and itself. 15 Example: 22 5

6 Although neither 15 nor 22 are prime the fraction will not simplify as 15 or 22 do not have a common factor (other than 1). Addition and subtraction of fractions To add or subtract fractions the denominator must be the same Example 1: The lowest common denominator is 6. 1 = So = = 6 Example 2: The lowest common denominator is 12 3 = = So =

7 = 12 1 Rounding decimals Numbers can be rounded to a specified degree of accuracy. E.g is: to 2 decimal places to 1 decimal place 123 to the nearest whole number 120 to the nearest ten 100 to the nearest hundred Comparing Decimals When you want to compare long decimals, rearrange the numbers in order of size. Arrange these three numbers in order of size, starting with the smallest , , To do this, compare the values of the digits with the same place value column Start with the largest place value (hundreds in this example). Pick out the smallest value (2). If there is more than one of the same value Compare the digits in the next place value Column (tens in this example). Pick out the smaller value (7). Continue until all comparisons have been made Original Numbers Numbers in order of size Calculating with decimals There are many correct methods of carrying out calculations with decimals. Answers should be checked by: Using approximate calculations Or by using inverse operations (E.g. use addition to check the answer to a subtraction). 7

8 Using percentages Percentages of a quantity Rules and tools for level 1 shows how to find simple percentages of a quantity. These included: To Find Method 50% Divide by 2 10% Divide by 10 5% Divide by 10, then divide by 2 To find 1% of a quantity, divide by 100. This enables other percentages to be calculated Example 1: Work out 23% of 250 (no calculator) 10% of 250 = 25 ( ) 20% of 250 = 2 x 25 = 50 1% of 250 = 2.50 ( ) 3% of 250 = 3 x 2.50 = % of 250 = = Example 2: Work out 9% of (use a calculator) 9% is 9 hundredths To find 1% of divide by 100 Then to calculate 9% (9 hundredths) multiply by 9 So enter x 9 = into the calculator The calculator shows (to the nearest penny) 8

9 Percentage increase VAT (Value Added Tax) is 17.5%. It is added to the basic cost before selling many items. 17.5% is made up of 10% + 5% + 2.5% Work out VAT like this: Value without VAT = 150 VAT 10% 15 1/10 of 150 5% 7 50 Half of 10% 2.5% 3 75 Half of 5% 17.5% Add 10% +5% + 2.5% The VAT to be added to 150 is so the cost including VAT is Although the rate of VAT is 17.5% in 2003 it can be changed at any time by the government in a budget. Percentage decrease If there is 30% off (30% decrease) in a sale there is still 70% to pay. E.g. A coat, priced at 80, is reduced in a sale by 30%. What is the sale price? If there is 30% off, there is 70% to pay. 10% of 80 = 8 70% of 80 = 7 X 8 = 56 So the sale price is 56 9

10 Evaluating one number as a percentage of another E.g.1 What is 53 as a percentage of 74? Step 1: Make a fraction of the two numbers: the number that follows as a percentage of is the denominator: Step 2: Change the fraction to a percentage by multiplying by 100. Use a calculator to evaluate: % (53 74 x 100 =) 74 = 71.62% correct to 2 decimal places E.g. 2 In a survey 80 people were asked what their favourite soap was. 35 people liked Coronation Street best. What percentage of those surveyed liked Coronation Street best? % = 43.75% % liked Coronation Street best. Using a calculator It is easy to make a mistake when keying numbers into a calculator so always check calculations done on a calculator by:- Doing the question twice, putting the numbers in to the calculator in a different order if this is possible e.g. for additions or multiplications. Using inverses to check by a different calculation e.g. doing additions to check subtractions or multiplications to check divisions. Round numbers to the nearest whole number or to the nearest 10 and do the calculation in your head or on paper to check the order (approximate size) of your answer. Calculators that have functions like memory, fractions and brackets can be useful but these functions often have different ways in which they must be 10

11 used. Look at the handbook that came with the calculator for instructions about how to use these functions or ask your teacher for help. The functions that you have to be able to use are +,,,, =, % and π Currency conversion Banks, Post Offices and travel agencies and some building societies sell foreign currencies. They charge for this service, it is called commission. They will buy foreign money from you at a lower rate than when they sell it to you to pay for the cost of doing the business for you. Pounds to Euros To change from one currency to another you need to know the exchange rate for that day. On 24/08/02 the pound ( ) to euro ( ) exchange rate what 1 = 1.59 (or 1 and 59 cents). Convert from to like this. Check your calculation by dividing by = 1 x 1.59 = = 1 2 = 2 x 1.59 = = 2 3 = 3 x 1.59 = = 3 So multiply the number of pounds ( ) by the exchange rate. Euros to Pounds On 12/09/02 the euro ( ) to pound ( ) exchange rate was: 1 = 0.63 Convert from to like this. Check your calculation by dividing by = 1 x 0.63 = = 1 2 = 2 x 0.63 = = 2 3 = 3 x 0.63 = = 3 So multiply the numbers of Euros ( ) by the exchange rate. The box shows the exchange rate for one pound ( 1). This indicates that: You have to give the bank 1.74 for Exchange Rates every 1 they give you. We buy We sell The bank will give you only 1.59 for 1.74 Euros 1.59 every 1 you give them. 11

12 Time Earlier levels of rules and tools cover ways of recording dates and times. The standard units of time are covered in rules and tools, Level 1. The Metric/Imperial system Length An inch is about 2.5cm (2.54cm to 2 decimal places) A foot is about 30cm (30.5cm to 1 decimal place) A yard is a bit less than 1 metre 1 yard is 36 inches 1 metre is about 39 inches Weight A kilogram is just over 2 pounds (about 2.2 pounds) A pound is about 450grams. An ounce is about 25g Capacity A pint is just over half a litre A gallon is about 4.5 litres A litre is just under two pints The Metric system The units used in the metric system and information in how to convert between different units was covered in Level 1 rules and tools. The Imperial system Measure Units Short Form Equivalents Length inch foot (feet) yard mile in ft yd m 12 in = 1 ft 3 ft = 1 yd 1760 yds = 1m Weight Capacity ounces pounds stones tons pints gallons oz lb 16 oz = 1 lb 14 lb = 1 stone 8 pints = 1 gallon 12

13 Temperature Temperature is measured in degrees using either the Celsius of Fahrenheit scales. The instrument used to measure temperatures is a thermometer. Celsius Degrees Celsius are shortened to o C Water freezes at 0 o C Water boils at 100 o C A warm summers day in England would be about 20 o C Fahrenheit <h4> Degrees Fahrenheit are shortened to o F Water freezes at 32 o F Water boils at 212 o F Using formulae A formula is a rule for working out a calculation. A formula can be written in word or in symbols. The rectangle The perimeter of a shape is the distance around the edge of a shape. To work out the perimeter of a rectangle add the length of all four sides together. l b b For rectangle: Perimeter Area l = b + l + b + l = 2 (b + l) = l x b 13

14 Use the formulae to calculate the perimeter and area of this rectangle. 3.7cm 1.8 cm Perimeter = 2 (l+ l) = 2 ( ) cm = 2 (5.5) cm = 11 cm Area = l x b = 3.7 x 1.8 cm 2 = 6.66 cm 2 The Circle The perimeter of a circle has a special name, the circumference. diameter circumference radius The formula for calculating the circumference (perimeter) and area of a circle are: Circumference = π x diameter = πd Area = π x radius 2 = π r 2 π is also the number (to 3 decimal places) Use the π button on your calculator to see π to more decimal places. 14

15 Use the formulae to calculate the area and circumference of a circle with radius 5cm. Circumference = π d = x 10 (r = 5cm so d =10cm) = 31.42cm Area = π r 2 = x 5 x 5 = 85.5cm 2 Remember measurements must be in the same unit before substituting into a formula. Composite shapes The area of more difficult shapes can be calculated by breaking them up into the simple shapes that we know how to calculate the area. E.g. 18cm 9cm A B C 2cm 7cm 7cm 7cm The shape shown can be divided into rectangles as shown by the dotted lines. Now the area of each rectangle (A, B and C) can be calculated and the total area calculated by adding the three areas together. Area A = l x b = 9 x 7 = 63 cm 2 Area B = l x b = 5 x 4 = 20 cm 2 Area C = l x b = 7 x 7 = 49 cm 2 Total area =132 cm 3 15

16 Volumes The volume of a cuboid is calculated using the formula: h E.g. b l length x breadth x height Volume = l x b x h = 8 x 6 x 5 = 240 cm 3 Remember: Ensure all lengths are in the same unit before substituting in the formula The volume of a cylinder is calculated by multiplying the area of the base by the height. height Since the area of the base is a circle the formula for the area is π r 2 So the volume of a cylinder is π r 2 h base Example 23mm 2m Calculate the volume of a drain pipe with diameter 23mm and 2m long. Give your answer in cm3 Volume = π r 2 h = x x 200 = 831 cm 3 (to the nearest cm 3 ). Scale drawings 16

17 A scale of 1 : 75 means that 1 mm on the scale diagram represents 75 mm on the ground. Scale measurement = 32 mm Actual length is 32 x 75 x = 2400 mm = 2.4 m Scale measurement = 46 mm Actual length is 46 x 75 x = 3450 mm = 3.45 m Some formulae Formula to find Formula Units of answer Perimeter of rectangle P = 2(l + b) cm or m Area of rectangle A =lb cm² or m² Area of triangle A = ½ bh cm² or m² h is the perpendicular height Circumference of C = π d cm or m circle Area of circle A = π r² cm² or m² A = π r r Volume of cuboid V = lbh cm³ or m³ b is breadth, also called width Volume of cylinder V = πr²h cm³ or m³ h is the perpendicular height 2D or 3D 2D shapes are shapes that are drawn on paper (or other materials) 17

18 3D shapes are solid. They can be picked up 3D shapes can be represented as maps or plans in 2D on paper. A cardboard box is a 3D-shape, Most boxes are cut from a single piece of card and folded into the required box. The shape of the box before it is folded is called a net Another way of showing this box (or another 3D shape) as a 2D drawing is to show how the box would look if viewed from: 10 the front 5 the side the top 4 These different views are called different elevation Parallel Parallel lines always stay the same distance apart. (Like railway lines). Discrete and continuous data 18

19 Discrete data must have particular values. These values are usually whole numbers but sometimes fractions are involved. An example of discrete data would be shoe size: E.g. 6, 9 or 41/2 Continuous data can have any value within a range of values. An example of continuous data would be the actual length of someone s foot. This could be cm or 27.1 cm, for example. Continuous data can only be given to a degree of accuracy, to 2 decimal places for example, because it is measured. Tables, diagrams, charts and graphs The skills to extract, collect and organise data in tables, diagrams, charts and graphs have been covered at earlier levels. Averages and spread Mean The mean was defined at Level 1 as an average. To calculate the mean: add up the values of all of the data divide this total by the number of values. E.g. The mean of 6, 8, 7, 12 is = 33 = This may not be the best average to represent the data if there are many items of small value and one with a very large value. Median The median is another average. 19

20 The median is the middle score when the scores are put in order E.g. Find the median of 3,8,2,5,6,9,3,4,7 Put the scores in order: 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Write down all scores, for example, there are two 3s. Select the middle score as the median. The median is 5 E.g. 2 In this example there is no single middle score: 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8, 9 The median is = 11 = Mode The mode is also an average. The mode is the score that appears most often (most fashionable). In the data: 3,8,2,5,6,9,3,4,7 the mode is 3. (Because there are two 3s and only one of each of the other numbers) Some data may have more than one mode. In the data: 2, 3, 2, 3, 1, 5, 3, 6, 2 The modes are 2 and 3. (Since 2 and 3 both appear three times). Advantages and disadvantages 20

21 Mean: This gives a precise value, which reflects every score involved. It can be distorted by one or two very large or very low values. It is used on large populations e.g. if the average family is children and there are 2000 families 4430 school places will be needed. Median: This can give a more understandable value. It ignores the very high and very low values e.g. in the example above the mean of children may be useful but is not realistic. The median gives a whole number of children! Mode: This average is most useful when supplying goods for sale e.g. a shoe shop needs to order the most popular size of shoe: this is the mode of size. The range The range is a measure of how the data spreads out. Calculate the range by subtracting the smallest value from the largest value. E.g. The range of 2,9,4,1,3 is 9 1 = 8 21

22 Probability Probability is introduced in rules and tools at level 1. Independence Events are independent if one event cannot affect the outcome of the other event E.g. Flipping a coin and rolling a die are independent since the outcome of one does not affect the outcome of the other. Combined probabilities A combined probability can be calculated for events that are independent. E.g. The probability of scoring two 6s when two dice are rolled. Sample space tables and tree diagrams A sample space table can be useful to record all possible outcomes for two independent events. E.g. The results obtained when the score on two dice are added: + Outcome of first die Outcome of second die

23 Tree diagrams Tree diagrams can be used instead of sample space tables Outcomes Head HH Head Tail HT Tail Head TH First coin Tail Second coin TT This tree diagram shows all the possible outcomes of flipping two coins. Tree diagrams can be used for more than two events but sample space tables can only show two events. Tree diagrams for more than two events can be very large. 23
