  4. 4. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Divisibility Factors and multiples A factor of a number n, is a number d which divides n. Read ⇐⇒ if and only if. d is a factor of n ⇐⇒ d is a divisor of n ⇐⇒ d divides n ⇐⇒ n is divisible by d ⇐⇒ n is a multiple of d. Examples: −7 divides 14 ⇐⇒ −7 is a factor of 14 ⇐⇒ 14 is divisible by −7 ⇐⇒ 14 is a multiple of −7.Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions
  5. 5. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Divisibility Primes A prime number is a positive number that has only two positive factors 1 and the number itself (1 is not considered a prime number as it only has one positive factor). A number with more than two positive factors it is called composite number. Examples: 3 is a prime number because has only two positive fac- tors (1 and 3). 6 is a composite number because has four positive factors (1, 2, 3 and 6). Two numbers are relatively prime if they have no common positive divisors except 1. Example: 6 and 25 are relatively prime because positive factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, 6 and positive factors of 25 are 1, 5, 25.Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions
  6. 6. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Divisibility Prime decomposition Prime decomposition is to find the set of prime factors of an integer: To factorize a number you have to express the number as a product of its prime factors. To factorize negative numbers use also −1. Examples: • 90 = 2 · 45 = 2 · 3 · 15 = 2 · 3 · 3 · 5 = 2 · 32 · 5. • −25 = −1 · 25 = −1 · 5 · 5 = −1 · 52 .Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions
  7. 7. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Divisibility GCD and LCM The Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) is the highest number that is a common factor of two or more numbers. It is clear that if GCD(a, b) = 1, a and b are relatively prime. Examples: GCD(42, 110) = 2, because positive factors of 42 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42, and positive factors of 110 are 1, 2, 5, 10, 11, 22, 55, 110. 12 and 35 are relatively prime, because GCD(12, 35) = 1. The Least Common Multiple (LCM) is the lowest positive number that is a common multiple of two or more numbers. Example: LCM(6, 9) = 18, because positive multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24, . . . and positive multiples of 9 are 9, 18, 27, . . .Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions

  9. 9. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Fractions What’s a fraction? A fraction is a number that represents a part of something. a Fractions are written in the form , where a and b are integers, b a and the number b is not zero. Read a over b. b The number a is called numerator, and the number b is called denominator. 13 Example: , 13 is the numerator and 25 is the denominator. 25Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions

A fraction greater than one is called an improper fraction. 12 23 Examples: is a proper fraction. is an improper fraction. 17 15 Equivalent fractions Equivalent fractions are different fractions that name the same amount. 3 6 Example: = 7 14 because they represent the same amount.Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions
  11. 11. Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Fractions Amplify and reduce fractions To find equivalent fractions, multiply or divide the numerator and the denominator by the same number. If you multiply by the same number, you amplify the fraction. If you divide by the same factor, you reduce the fraction. Examples: 6 • To amplify we 9 6 60 multiply the numerator and the denominator by 10: = . 9 90 6 • To reduce we 9 6 2 divide the numerator and the denominator by 3: = . 9 3Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions

To write a fraction in the simplest form find the lowest terms fraction. To reduce a fraction to the lowest terms fraction, we can use two methods: • Divide the numerator and the denominator by the Greatest Common Factor. • Divide the numerator and the denominator by any common factor and keep dividing until they are relatively prime.Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions

Index Divisibility Fractions Simplest form Operations Exercises Operations Add and subtract To add or subtract fractions with like denominators, add the numerators and keep the same denominator. To add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators, first amplify these fractions to obtain like denominators (using the LCM or any multiple). Simplify, if possible. Examples: 4 8 12 4 • + = = . 15 15 15 5 3 1 3 1 6 5 11 • To add + using the LCM: + = + = . 15 6 15 6 30 30 30 Because LCM(15, 6) = 30. • Using another common multiple of 15 and 6, for example 60: 3 1 12 10 22 11 + = + = = . 15 6 60 60 60 30Alberto Pardo Milan´s e Factors and Fractions
