Therefore, read the Case Study and questions and come back to it at the end of the module. Do it with a friend. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Case study <ul><li>Tony and his wife, Emily, have recently started a small catering firm. They work from home and travel to pre-arranged venues to cater for meetings, weddings, funerals etc. </li></ul><ul><li>They have been asked to provide a light lunch at a small day-long congress. There will be 38 people for lunch. They have experienced energy black-outs and always take their own gas stoves with them. They also try to prepare dishes in their own kitchen ahead of time as far as possible to ensure that the catering process runs smoothly. </li></ul><ul><li>They decide to make Potato Rosti with Salmon . They have a recipe which will serve 4 people (Source: Sunday Times, 16 th March 2008). They will supply orange and grape juice as well as water for drinks with the lunch. For dessert they decide to serve Chocolate Cheesecake with the coffee/tea. The recipe serves 12 people. </li></ul>
  8. 10. Case study <ul><li>Make a list of ingredients necessary to cater for 38 people </li></ul><ul><li>Decide how much fruit juice to buy and add this to the list </li></ul><ul><li>In the same list adapt the ingredients for 100 people for possible future reference </li></ul><ul><li>Find the prices of the ingredients and calculate how much this lunch will cost Tony and Emily </li></ul><ul><li>A famous British chef also attends the congress and asks Tony and Emily whether they would mind to give him the recipes if he credits them in his new recipe book. They ask you to quickly convert the measurements to the Imperial system as the British do not work in the metric system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You find out that: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1 tablespoon = 15ml; 1 teaspoon = 5ml; 1oz = 28,35g; 10 fluid ounces = 300ml. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>List the ingredients with Imperial measurements. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 11. Case study <ul><li>Make a list of ingredients necessary to cater for 38 people </li></ul>For Potato Rosti To all intents and purposes, we can presume that there are 40 people, otherwise you’ll end up with half ingredients. 30 Potatoes 10 Onions 10 eggs 150ml + extra 1kg Salmon 10 lemons 10 cartons extra cheese  
  10. 12. Case study <ul><li>Make a list of ingredients necessary to cater for 38 people </li></ul>Chocolate cheesecake Here we have a bit of a dilemma: We could increase the amount to 40 people (and serve everyone slightly more) or decrease the amount to 36 people (and serve everyone slightly less). While its better in this case to round up, it’s easier to round down. 750 g toasted cereal 167g toasted hazelnuts 13 1/3 tbsp butter 83 g dark chocolate 1167g cream cheese 333g castor sugar 667 ml castor sugar 1 litre double cream 3 1/3 sachet gelatin 10 tbsp water 583.3g dark chocolate 583 g white chocolate
  11. 13. Case study <ul><li>2. Decide how much fruit juice to buy and add this to the list </li></ul>Assuming that each person would have 2 glasses of fruit juice = 500ml x 40 people =20 litres of fruit juice =10 litres orange and 10 litres grape
  12. 14. Case study <ul><li>3. In the same list adapt the ingredients for 100 people for possible future reference </li></ul><ul><li>For potato rosti </li></ul><ul><li>75 potatoes </li></ul><ul><li>25 onions </li></ul><ul><li>25 onions </li></ul><ul><li>375 ml oil </li></ul><ul><li>2.5 kg salmon </li></ul><ul><li>25 lemons </li></ul><ul><li>25 cartons cream cheese </li></ul><ul><li>For chocolate cheesecake </li></ul><ul><li>Here, we can round up to 108 people and then multiple by 9 </li></ul><ul><li>2025 toasted cereal </li></ul><ul><li>450g toasted hazelnuts </li></ul><ul><li>36 tbsp butter </li></ul><ul><li>225 dark chocolate </li></ul><ul><li>3.15 kg cream cheese </li></ul><ul><li>900g castor sugar </li></ul><ul><li>1800 ml yoghurt </li></ul><ul><li>2700 ml double cream </li></ul><ul><li>9 sachets gelatin </li></ul><ul><li>27 tbsp water </li></ul><ul><li>1,575 kg dark chocolate </li></ul><ul><li>1,575 kg white chocolate </li></ul>
  13. 15. Case study <ul><li>5. A famous British chef also attends the congress and asks Tony and Emily whether they would mind to give him the recipes if he credits them in his new recipe book. They ask you to quickly convert the measurements to the Imperial system as the British do not work in the metric system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You find out that: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1 tablespoon = 15ml; 1 teaspoon = 5ml; 1oz = 28,35g; 10 fluid ounces = 300ml. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>List the ingredients with Imperial measurements. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>For potato rosti </li></ul><ul><li>3 potatoes </li></ul><ul><li>1 Onion </li></ul><ul><li>1 egg </li></ul><ul><li>0.5 fl oz oil </li></ul><ul><li>3.53 oz salmon </li></ul><ul><li>1 lemon </li></ul><ul><li>1 carton cream cheese </li></ul><ul><li>For lemon cheese cake </li></ul><ul><li>7.94 oz toasted cereal </li></ul><ul><li>1.76 oz hazelnuts </li></ul><ul><li>2 fl oz butter </li></ul><ul><li>0.88 oz dark chocolate </li></ul><ul><li>12.35oz </li></ul><ul><li>3.53 oz </li></ul><ul><li>6.67 fl oz yoghurt </li></ul><ul><li>10 fl oz crean </li></ul><ul><li>1 sachet gelatin </li></ul><ul><li>1.5 fl oz water </li></ul><ul><li>6.17 oz dark chocolate </li></ul><ul><li>6.17 oz white chocolate </li></ul>

Activity 2: Count, order and estimate numbers <ul><li>Has the government set aside sufficient funds for the recapitalisation programme? </li></ul>R68 million has been set aside, together with another R570 million totals R638 million. This needs to replace 86 600 taxis. This gives R7367 per taxi. If you say that the government has R570 million to replace 25 720 taxis, then each taxi gets R22 161, which still falls short of the R50 000.
  18. 21. Activity 2: Count, order and estimate numbers <ul><li>2. How many taxis will have been scrapped by 2011? </li></ul>Total taxis scrapped = 13400 + 25720 = 39 120 taxis projected to be scrapped
  19. 22. Activity 2: Count, order and estimate numbers <ul><li>3. What percentage of transport trips in SA are not made by minibus taxi? </li></ul>Percentage of trips not made by taxi = 100% - 35% = 65%
  20. 23. Activity 2: Count, order and estimate numbers <ul><li>4. Estimate the daily revenue of the taxi industry in Johannesburg alone. </li></ul>The difficult part of this question is what we do with weekends. One option would be to take only weekdays, which would overestimate the daily value, another option would be to take the whole week, which would underestimate the value earned during a weekday. The proper value would lie somewhere between these two values. For 7 day week: R10.96 million per day For 5 day week: R15.33 million per day
  21. 24. Activity 2: Count, order and estimate numbers <ul><li>5. Do you think that it is fair of a taxi operator to demand R100 000 for replacement of an old taxi? </li></ul>Considering that these taxis are going to be scrapped, R100 000 is a lot of money, probably far too much.

  33. 38. Activity 4 <ul><li>A head-line in the Business Day on 17 th March 2008 read: “January retail sales negative.” </li></ul><ul><li>Read these excerpts from the article : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This week is the calm before the storm of local inflation figures next week, but there maybe gloomy news when retail sales and current account numbers are released on Wednesday. </li></ul></ul>
  34. 39. Activity 4 <ul><li>…… ..retail trade figures for November last year had shown the first contraction in real terms since 2001 (-2% year-on-year) and the December figure reflected a real 0,5% year-on-year decline. </li></ul><ul><li>“ We expect retail trade to continue showing a decrease in January figures and to record a 2% year-on-year decline for the first month of this year,” Efficient Research said. </li></ul><ul><li>The rand has been under pressure lately and part of the blame is a swelling current account deficit which reached a level of 8,1% to gross domestic product (on annualised basis) in the third quarter of last year. </li></ul>
  35. 40. Activity 4 <ul><li>We expect the fourth quarter to report a smaller current account deficit, as the trade deficit narrowed to about R16bn from R23,1bn in the third quarter. Despite this, the annual figure of the current account deficit to gross domestic product, is still expected to be larger than the -6,5% recorded in 2006, possibly nearing -7%,” it said. </li></ul><ul><li>Other important data published in the Quarterly Bulletin will include debt and savings levels. The rate of increase in household debt to disposable income started to rise from 2005 and during the third quarter of last year it reached 77,4%. Efficient Research said they expected further rises in this measure as higher interest rates and general inflationary pressures continued to put households’ budgets under pressure. </li></ul>
  36. 41. Activity 4 <ul><li>“ The flip side of the coin is of course that household saving to disposable income recorded a negative figure of -0,5% (i.e. dis-saving) for 2006. Data for last year will again report a negative figure as all three quarters so far have also recorded negative values,” they said. </li></ul><ul><li>Across the pond the UK is in for a busy week ahead of Easter. Bishop said the UK”s consumer inflation data was likely to lurch higher in February, to 2,6% from 2,2% “but this should reflect the new treatment of the previously announced utility tariff hikes, not an unforeseen worsening in underlying inflation trends”. </li></ul>

  70. 75. 2.1 Estimation and approximation / rounding <ul><li>An estimate is an informed guess. It is an approximation of a quantity which has been decided by judgement rather than by counting, measuring or doing accurate calculation </li></ul>
  71. 76. 2.1 Estimation and approximation / rounding <ul><li>Examples: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The number of TB patients seen at a clinic per year might be 597. If you want to calculate the average number seen per month, the calculation will be 597 divided by 12, which is 49,75. But this is not an appropriate answer, as you cannot deal with 0,75 of a person. Therefore, the answer should be approximated to the nearest whole number i.e. 50 people. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An estimate is therefore a rough judgment, and can apply to any of the measurements mentioned earlier, such as temperature, the grain harvest or number of bottles of wine produced per day in a bottling plant. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rounding up: If 52 people need to be transported, how many 10-seater buses are needed? (52 10 = 5,2 ). Round up to 6 buses otherwise some people will not have a seat. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>16,4 bottles of 750ml capacity are needed to bottle 12 300ml of wine. Round down to 16 bottles. You cannot sell 0,4 of a bottle of wine. </li></ul></ul>
  72. 77. 2.1 Estimation and approximation / rounding <ul><li>Approximation in mathematics has a different meaning to estimation. An approximation is also a value that is close to the true value of that number. It is also known as rounding off. A number can be rounded off to the nearest hundred, for example the number of people attending a rugby match might be counted as 34 768 but if rounded off to the nearest hundred the number would be 34 800; rounded off to the nearest thousand, the number would be 35 000; and rounded off to the nearest ten thousand, the number would be </li></ul>
  73. 78. How to round off: <ul><li>If you have to round off/approximate 35 768 to the nearest hundred, put your pencil on the hundreds digit, and establish whether the digit immediately to its right is a five, a six, a seven, an eight or a nine. If so, then this five or larger than five number, forces the hundreds number, seven in this example, to become one larger, namely eight. Therefore 35 768 becomes 35 800. If the number to the right is smaller than five, then there will be no change to the digit you are interested in, but zero’s will be placed to the right of this number. </li></ul>
  74. 79. Activity 7 <ul><li>A municipality sent the following estimated information with regard to water usage to its rate payers: </li></ul><ul><li>In the garden: Hose pipe = 30L per minute </li></ul><ul><li>Car wash = 1 000L per wash. </li></ul><ul><li>Bathroom: 1 toilet flush = 10L 1 bath = 100 – 200L </li></ul><ul><li>Bathroom sink: 1 sink = 30L </li></ul><ul><li>  Investigate whether these four estimates are close.

  96. 101. Activity 10 <ul><li>Interpret the news: Mathematical indices </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A valuable mathematical calculation method is that of using an index. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An index is just a single number derived from a bunch of other numbers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Look at the Breakfast Index as explained by Seiter in his book: Everyday Math for Dummies. The elements of the breakfast index are: </li></ul></ul>
  97. 102. 5,43% 4,01% 2.25% 43,89% 17.90% 19,82% Breakfast items Price in 1995 Price in 2000 One dozen eggs $1,29 $1,36 One pound of bacon $2,49 $2,59 Half a gallon of milk $0,89 $0,91 A stack of pancakes $3,19 $4,59 Can of frozen orange juice $1,17 $1,37 Total $9,03 $10,82
  98. 103. Activity 10 <ul><li>In an indexing scheme you set the original total equal to the number one by dividing the total by itself. Then for other years, you get an indexed number by dividing the new total by the original total. </li></ul><ul><li>In other words: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Index for 1995 = 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Index for 2000 = 1,22 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You can make a graph of these numbers over the years and use the graph to track an approximate price of breakfast. One of the conveniences of such an index is that just by looking at the figures you can see the % change, 22% in this case. </li></ul><ul><li>The inflation index also known as the CPIX is made up of a longer list of goods and services, but basically it is the same idea. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Convert the dollar prices to rand and the Imperial measurements to metric. (Conversion table in Activity 9). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the last column add the present prices and calculate the present breakfast index. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>However, the word index derives from indicator, and some indices are calculated on a different basis. </li></ul><ul><li>Look at the index for obesity in the following Case study. </li></ul>
  99. 104. Activity 11 <ul><li>The table of BMI (Body Mass Index) gives an indication of obesity. Obesity is associated with hypertension, heart disease and adult-onset diabetes, as well as back and joint problems. </li></ul>
  100. 107. Activity 11 <ul><li>The BMI in the top row is calculated with the formula BMI = mass divided by length squared (calculations of the index are in kg/m²). However, in this table the heights as well as body weights, are given in Imperial units. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Convert the “inches” column into metre readings. Approximate each calculation to a logical answer (Use one inch = 2,54 cm) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Convert the selected row of body weight readings into kilograms. Approximate each calculation to a logical answer. (Use one pound = 0,4536 kg). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Select your own height and weight and read your own BMI from table 1. Use Table 2 to decide in which category of disease risk you fall. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Abdominal fat impacts on glucose metabolism and on cholesterol function. Therefore, waist circumference is sometimes an even better measure of obesity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>abdominal obesity is defined as follows: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>waist circumference of an adult female > 80 cm. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>waist circumference of an adult male > 94 cm. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Using the answers obtained in c. and d. describe your own level of obesity.

  110. 117. 2.3 Ratio and proportion <ul><li>Proportion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A proportion is a statement where two ratios are equal. Four quantities are in proportion if the ratio of the first to the second equals the ratio of the third to the fourth. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>4; 8; 6; and 12 are in proportion because 4 : 8 = 1 : 2 and 6 : 12 = 1 : 2 therefore: 4 : 8 = 6 : 12 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  111. 118. 2.3 Ratio and proportion <ul><li>Direct proportion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Two quantities are said to be directly proportional if, as one quantity decreases (or increases), the other quantity also decreases (or increases). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example 1: If one loaf of bread costs R6,50 then two loaves of bread will cost R13, three loaves of bread will cost R19,50 etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example 2: The set (12; 20; 32 ) is in direct proportion to the set (3 ; 5 ; 8 ) and the constant quotient is 4, i.e. 12 ÷ 3 = 4; 20 ÷ 5 = 4 and 32 ÷ 8 = 4. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  112. 119. 2.3 Ratio and proportion <ul><li>Indirect proportion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Two quantities are said to be indirectly proportional if, as one quantity decreases (or increases), the other quantity increases (or decreases). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example 1: As the price of petrol increases, the number of litres that you purchase, becomes less. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Example 2: The set (40; 24; 15 ) and the set (3; 5; 8) are in indirect or inverse proportion to each other since 40 x 3 = 120; 24 x 5 = 120 and 15 x 8 = 120. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  113. 120. 2.3 Ratio and proportion <ul><li>Rate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unlike ratio, rate is used to compare different kinds of quantities, e.g. speed is the rate at which you travel in kilometers per hour or metres per second. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example 1: A typist can type 650 words in 10 minutes. Her rate of typing is 65 words per minute. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example 2: A sprinter can run a distance of 100 metres in 10 seconds. This means he has an average speed of 100m / 10s = 10 m / s. </li></ul></ul>
  114. 121. 2.3 Ratio and proportion <ul><li>Scale on sketches and maps: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When a draughtsman sketches a house, he cannot make the sketch of the same size as the house. The sketch has to be much smaller. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A scale or multiplication factor is included on sketches and maps. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The scale states that a certain ratio exists between the lengths on the sketch and the lengths of the actual building. </li></ul></ul>
  115. 122. Activity 13 <ul><li>Measure the sketch of the floor plan of the house: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The width of the windows. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The width of the doors onto the stoep. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The floor area of the stoep. </li></ul></ul>
  116. 123. Activity 13 <ul><li>The scale for the plan sketch is 1 : 100, which implies that for each one millimetre measured on the sketch, you will measure 100 mm on the actual building. And for 1 cm measured on the sketch, you will measure 100 cm on the actual building. For 2 cm on the sketch you will measure 2 x 100 cm on the actual building etc… Lengths on the building are 100 times that on the sketch. The scale is a conversion factor – you are converting the measurements on the sketch to the measurements on the actual building. </li></ul>
  117. 124. Activity 13 <ul><li>Now calculate the actual lengths of the following: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The width of the windows. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The width of the doors onto the stoep. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The floor area of the stoep </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If the windows are 1,5 m high and the doors are 2 m high, calculate the interior wall space that has to be painted. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organise the information in a table i.e. tabulate the data. </li></ul></ul>1200mm = 1,2 metres 1000mm = 1,0 metres 17,38m 2
