ESTIMATION Estimation may be explained as a rough or sensible guess fo a value or calculation. Although, the estimated value is not correct, it gives us an idea of what the correct answer should be. The common units of length are kilometer (km), meters (m), centimeters (cm), millimeters (mm).Mass = (Tonne, kilogram (kg) gramme (g). […]

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 – 1/4x Solution: […]

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 […]

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, […]
