1. 1. Unit 02 October 1. POWERS. 1.1. INDEX OR EXPONENT NOTATION. Instead of writing 2 π₯π₯ 2 π₯π₯ 2 π₯π₯ 2 π₯π₯ 2 we can write 25 : In 25 , the 2 is called the base number and the 5 is the index, power or exponent. The index is the number of times the base number appears in the product. This notation enables us to quickly write long lists of identical numbers being multiplied together. 34 is the short way of writing 3 π₯π₯ 3 π₯π₯ 3 π₯π₯ 3 106 is the short way of writing 1,000,000 = 10π₯π₯10π₯π₯10π₯π₯10π₯π₯10π₯π₯10 MATH VOCABULARY: Base Number, Index, Exponent. Distribution. 1.2. NAMING POWERS. 65 may be read as: β’ Six to the fifth power β’ Six to the power of five β’ Six powered to five. NOTE: During this curse use the first way.

2. 2. Unit 02 October 1.3. SQUARE AND CUBE POWERS. We call Square Power a number to the second power. It represent the result of multiplying a number by itself. The verb "to square" is used to denote this operation. Squaring is the same as raising to the power 2. We call Cube Power a number to the third power. It represent the result of the number multiplied by itself twice. The verb "to cube" is used to denote this operation. Cubing is the same as raising to the power 3. MATH VOCABULARY: Square, Cube, Raise, To Factorize. Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.2
3. 3. Unit 02 October 1.4. POWERS OF TEN. MULTIPLYING BY POWERS OF 10 When we multiply by: 10 we make a number 10 times larger 100 we make a number 100 times larger 1000 we make a number 1000 times larger When we multiply by 1 0 β¦ 0οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½ ππ π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§ we add n zeros onto the end of the whole number. 35 β 10,000 = 350,000 When we use 10 as a base, the index shows the place value or number of zeros following the one. We remember that in expanded notation we write the number as the sum of its place values. Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.3
4. 4. Unit 02 October For example: 5,042 = (5 β 1000) + (4 β 10) + (2 β 1) Power notation is expanded notation written with powers of 10. 5,042 = (5 β 103 ) + (4 β 101 ) + (2 β 100 ) NOTE: 100 = 1. DIVIDING BY POWERS OF 10 When we divide by: 10 we make a number 10 times smaller 100 we make a number 100 times smaller 1000 we make a number 1000 times smaller When we divide by 1 0 β¦ 0οΏ½οΏ½οΏ½ ππ π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§π§ we remove n zeros onto the end of the whole number. 35,000 Γ· 1,000 = 35 230,000 Γ· 102 = 230,000 Γ· 100 = 2,300 USING POWERS OF 10 FOR SHORTENING LARGE NUMBERS We can use the powers of 10 for shortening large numbers to simplify them. For example a light-year has 9,460,800,000,000 km. We can rounded to 9,500,000,000,000 km. That is equal to 95 β 100,000,000,000 = 95 β 1011 ππππ. MATH VOCABULARY: Power of 10, Expanded Notation, Power Notation, Larger, To Remove, To Shorten, Kilometres, Capacity, Even Number, Odd Number, Gram. Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.4
5. 5. Unit 02 October 2. PROPERTIES OF POWERS. 2.1. MULTIPLICATION. When powers with the same base are multiplied, the base remains unchanged and the exponents are added. ππππ β ππ ππ = ππππ+ππ 75 β 73 = (7 β 7 β 7 β 7 β 7) β (7 β 7 β 7) = 75+3 = 78 When we have powers with different base but the same exponent, we multiply the bases and keep the same exponent. We may also do it in the reciprocal way. ( ππ β ππ)ππ = ππππ β ππππ 53 β 73 = (5 β 5 β 5) β (7 β 7 β 7) = (5 β 7) β (5 β 7) β (5 β 7) = (5 β 7)3 = 353 64 = (3 β 2)4 = 34 β 24 2.2. DIVISION. When powers with the same base are divided, the base remains unchanged and the exponents are subtracted. ππππ Γ· ππ ππ = ππππβππ 75 Γ· 73 = (7 β 7 β 7 β 7 β 7) Γ· (7 β 7 β 7) = 75β3 = 72 When we have powers with different base but the same exponent, we divide the bases and keep the same exponent. We may also do it in the reciprocal way. ( ππ Γ· ππ)ππ = ππππ Γ· ππππ Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.5
6. 6. Unit 02 October 153 Γ· 33 = (15 β 15 β 15) Γ· (3 β 3 β 3) = (15 Γ· 3) β (15 Γ· 3) β (15 Γ· 3) = (15 Γ· 3)3 = οΏ½ 15 3 οΏ½ 3 = 53 2.3. POWER OF A POWER. The exponents must be multiplied: ( ππππ) ππ = ππππβππ (23)5 = 23 β 23 β 23 β 23 β 23 = 23+3+3+3+3 = 23β5 = 215 2.4. SPECIAL POWERS. We have two special powers: ππππ = ππ (ππππππππππππππ ππππππ ππ β  ππ) 1,6780 = 1 ππππ = ππ 1,6781 = 1,678 Solved exercise: Simplify: (ππ2 β ππ1)4 Γ· (ππ6 Γ· ππ3)3 = (ππ2+1)4 Γ· (ππ6β3)3 = (ππ3)4 Γ· (ππ3)3 = ππ3β4 Γ· ππ3β3 = ππ12 Γ· ππ9 = ππ12β9 = ππ3 Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.6
7. 7. Unit 02 October 3. SQUARE ROOTS. 3.1. SQUARE ROOTS. The square root of the square number 9 is written as β9. It is the positive number which when squared gives 9. This symbol is called Radical Sign and the number 9 is called Radicand. Since 32 = 9 β β9 = 3 Examples: βFind out the following squareβ: β36 = 6; β100 = 10; β64 = 8 A perfect square is a number that is the square of another natural number. Examples: βConstruct the list of the first eight perfect square numbersβ. They are: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49 and 64, because: 12 = 1; 22 = 4; 32 = 9; 42 = 16; 52 = 25; 62 = 36; 72 = 49;82 = 64 3.2. ESTIMATING SQUARE ROOTS. Sometimes the square root of a number is not a natural number. In those cases we can estimate the value of a non-exact square root giving the natural number which is smaller but nearer that number. Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.7
8. 8. Unit 02 October ESTIMATING BY TRIAL Imagine you want to estimate by trial β3,900, we start for example with the number 60: 602 = 3,600 < 3,900 612 = 3,721 < 3,900 622 = 3,844 < 3,900 632 = 3,969 > 3,900 So 3,900 is greater than 622 and smaller than 632 . That is 62 < β3,900 < 63. We can write β3,900 β 62. THE SQUARE ROOT ALGORITHM LetΒ΄s do it with an example. We will calculate οΏ½105,674 STEPS: 1. We separate in pairs, starting by the right side the radicandΒ΄s figures, and we calculate the square root of the first pair (β10): β10 . 56 . 74 3 β€ π΄π΄ 3 β 3 β¦ β9 6 β€ π΅π΅ 1 π΄π΄ = β10 = 3 ππππππ ππππππππππππππππππ ππ = 1 π΅π΅ = 3 β 2 = 6 (π΄π΄π΄π΄ π΄π΄π΄π΄π΄π΄π΄π΄ π‘π‘βππ ππππππππππππ) 2. We down the following pair (56) and we look for the figure βCβ, so that 6πͺπͺ Γ πͺπͺ is the closer number to 156 Axel CotΓ³n GutiΓ©rrez Mathematics 1ΒΊ ESO 2.8
9. 9. Unit 02 October β10 . 56 . 74 3 3 β 3 β¦ β9 6πͺπͺ Γ πͺπͺ 1 56 We can check that 6ππ β ππ = 124 is the closer number to 156, because 6ππ β ππ = 189 is greater than our target. So πͺπͺ = ππ. β10 . 56 . 74 3 3 β 3 β¦ β9 6ππ Γ ππ = ππππππ 156 62 Γ 2 = 124 β 124 032 3. We up the value of βCβ, to the solution field, and we down the following pair and we repeat the whole process. β10 . 56 . 74 32 3 β 3 β¦ β9 6ππ Γ ππ = ππππππ 156 645 Γ 5 = 3,225 62 Γ 2 = 124 β 124 03274 3225 0049 We can check that 64ππ β ππ = 3,225 is the closer number to 3,274. 64 = 32 β 2 4. We up the new value of βCβ, to the solution field. Answer: οΏ½105,674 = 325, and we have a remainder of 49.
