## ALGERAIC FRACTIONS

ALGERAIC FRACTIONS To add or subtract fractions with different denominators, first change them to equivalent fractions. This is done by finding the L C M of the denominators Example1: Simplify 2a/5 + 4a/3 Solution: The L C M is 15 6a + 20a/ 15 = 26a/15 Example 2: Simplify 3/5x + 1/2x â€“ 1/4x Solution: […]

## APPROXIMATION AND ESTIMATION

APPROXIMATION AND ESTIMATION (SIGNIFCANT AND DECIMAL PLACES) SIGNIFICANT: TO ROUNDOFF A NUMBER CHANGE 0,1,2,3,4 TO 0 WHILE 5,6,7,8,9 TO 1 AND ADD IT TO THE NEXT NUMBER Example 1: round off 492.763 to (a) 3 s.f (b) 3 s.f (c) 2 d.p (d) 4 d.p Solution: (a). 492.763 = 49 (since the third number is

## ARITHMETIC | SIMPLE INTEREST, PROFIT AND LOSS, DISCOUNT AND COMMISSION

HOUSEHOLD ARITHMETIC (SIMPLE INTEREST, PROFIT AND LOSS, DISCOUNT AND COMMISSION) PROFIT AND LOSS When a trader buys or sells goods, the price at which he /she sells is called selling price while the price at which he/she buys is called cost price. When the good is sold at a price greater than the cost price,
