- 23. The Decimal System 821657.324 800 000 + 20 000 + 1000 + 600 + 50 + 7 + 0.3 + 0.02 + 0.004 Mathematical Literacy pg 9 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 23
- 24. Moving the Decimal Place •It moves to the right when we multiply by 10 • It moves to the left when we divide by 10 821657324 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 24
- 25. Estimation • An estimate is just an informed guess • We use estimation when it would be difficult to do a full calculation, and we don’t need to be accurate Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 25
- 26. Positive and Negative Numbers • Anything with a negative sign is less than zero • Anything without a sign or with a positive sign is greater than zero -8 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 26
- 27. Positive and Negative Numbers • The further to the left on the negative side, the larger the digits, but the smaller the value of the digits • The arrows on the line represent negative numbers continuing on to the left, and positive numbers continuing on to the right • The numbers on the number line are all integers or whole numbers • Between the whole numbers, lie various fractions Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 27

- 30. Fractions and Percentages Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 30
- 31. Fractions and Percentages • A fraction means “less than one of” • With the pizza on the previous page, each piece of the pizza was one eighth of the total • Add together all 8 pieces and you have eight eighths or a whole pizza • 1½ means one pizza plus a half of a pizza • This is the same as 3/2 meaning 3 halves of a pizza Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 31
- 32. Expressing Fractions Numerator Common Fractions: ½ Denominator Decimals: 0.5 Percentage: 50% Ratio 1:2 Terminator Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 32
- 33. Converting Fractions to Decimals • To change a fraction to a decimal, divide the top number by the bottom number • What is 1/8 as a decimal? • Using your calculator: M h at M M M M Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 33
- 34. Converting Decimals to Common Fractions • On the top line of the fraction, write the digits after the decimal point • On the bottom line of the fraction, write the number 1 followed by the same number of zero’s as digits after the comma 625 0.625= 1000 Mathematical Literacy pg 17 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 34
- 35. Converting Fractions to Percentages 1. Divide the numerator by the denominator to get the fraction in decimal format 2. Multiply the answer by 100 to get a percentage 3. Add a % sign to your answer 420 945 Answer: A w : s i gn t o your ns er =44.44% Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 35
- 36. Percentages • A percentage is a fraction out of 100 • 10% therefore means 10 out of 100 • A percentage can also be written as a ratio 10:100 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 36
- 37. Calculating a % of a whole • We use this when we want to say “some percent of” Example: A clothing store is offering a 30% on all clothes. You buy R600 worth of clothes, how much discount do you receive? Answer: A w : i ve ns er AA Therefore your discount is R180 and the amount you pay is R600 – 180 = R420 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 37
- 38. Comparisons Question: Which shop gives the bigger discount: Shop A discounting R10 from R30 or shop B discounting R13 from R38? Answer: Shop A: 10 ÷ 30 x 100 = 33.3% Shop B: 13 ÷ 38 x 100 = 34.21% Therefore Shop B gives a bigger discount Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 38
- 39. Comparisons • R200 is divided between Nomsa, Shehaan and James in the ratio 4:2:2. How much does each person get? Answer: There are eight equal parts (4 +2 +2) Nomsa gets 4 eights = 4 ÷ 8 x 200 = R100 Shehaan and James each get 2 eighths = 2 ÷ 8 x 100 = R50 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 39
- 40. Comparing Fractions and Percentages ½ ½ ¼ ¼ ¼ ¼ 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1/10 1 / 20 50% 50% 25% 25% 25% 25% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 10% 5% Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 40
- 41. Calculations to solve problems Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 41
- 42. Numbers • Getting help from your calculator • Use numbers to solve problems • Count, order and estimate • Calculations to solve problems • Measurement tools and techniques to solve problems Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 42
- 43. Outcomes • At the end of this outcome, you will be able to: – Perform calculations using a pen and paper out of your head – Add and subtract to simplify calculations where possible and/ or useful – Use ratios and proportions to solve problems – Use estimation to anticipate and evaluate the result of a calculation and/or measurement – Estimate an “unknown” to solve a problem Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 43
- 44. Adding and subtracting large numbers • To add a large number: 538 4 Carry 1 over +642 1180 To subtract a large number: 841 7 3 -768 “Borrow” 10 from the column to the left 73 Mathematical Literacy 2 Future Managers 44
- 45. Multiply To multiply 32 x 54 1. Line up the 32 and the 54 as follows: 32 2. Now multiply 32 by the four x54 3. Put down a zero 128 1600 4. Multiple 32 by 5 1728 5. Add the two totals together Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 45
- 46. Rounding Off • Often, when we have long and complicated numbers, we round them off to simplify them. • We do this, when we don’t need a high degree of accuracy Examples: • Newlands rugby stadium has a capacity of 50 000 people (50900) • You can’t buy 2½ packets of boerewors for a party, you will round it up to 3 • If you have 3.25 litres of water, you can only fill 3 one litre water bottles, so you will round down Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 46
- 47. How to Round Off • Look at the number and find the digit that you want to round off to. • Find the decimal to the immediate right of it. If it is from 0-4 then the digit you are rounding to stays the same. If it is 5-9 then it increases by one. • Eg. 763243 to the nearest hundred is: 743200 • E.g.. 823790 to the nearest hundred is 823800 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 47
- 48. Add and Multiply • When combining addition, multiplication, division and subtraction, the order of the calculation is important. • The correct order is known as BODMAS Mathematical Literacy pg 31 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 48
- 49. BODMAS • Brackets • Of • Division • Multiplication • Addition • Subtraction Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 49
- 50. Examples • 32 + 3 x 4 = 44 • 32 + (3x4) = 44 • (32 + 3) x 4 = 140 • 7 + 5 x 10 + 3 = 60 • (7 + 5) x (10 + 3) = 156 • 6 + 10% of 200 = 26 • 3 + 4 – 5 + 10 = 12 • 4x3÷6= 2 Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 50
- 51. Ratios and Proportions Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 51
- 52. Ratios • A ratio is used to calculate the relative sizes or quantities of two things • Example: The ratio of Energade concentrate to water to make Energade • The ratio of xto y can be expressed as x or x/ (x :y + y) • A ratio doesn’t have units Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 52
- 53. Proportion • Direct Proportion – If one quantity rises, the other quantity rises with it • E.g. Distance covered vs. time • Indirect proportions – If one quantity rises, the other quantity falls • E.g. Price of Petrol vs. number of litres that you can buy for a certain amount Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 53
- 54. Rates • Rates are expressed as xper y • Rates are used to compare different kinds of quantities • Most often rates will be expressed in terms of time Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 54
- 55. Measurement Tools and Techniques to Solve Problems Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 55
- 56. Numbers • Getting help from your calculator • Use numbers to solve problems • Count, order and estimate • Calculations to solve problems • Measurement tools and techniques to solve problems Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 56

- 62. Convert • If converting from a large unit to a small then you need to multiply e.g. to get from litres to millilitres you multiply by 1000 • If converting from a small unit to a large unit, you need to divide e.g. 10mm = 1cm Future Managers Mathematical Literacy 2 62
