**CHAPTER 1: NUMBERS**

**The student should be able to:**

- identify the place value in each digit in base ten numeration.
- read numbers in base ten numeration AND write numbers in base ten numeration up to one billion
- distinguish between natural and whole numbers AND identify even, odd and prime numbers
- add , subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers.
- find factors of a number, multiples of a number , and use factors and multiples of number to find G.C.F and L.C.M of numbers
- identify integers, add, subtract, multiply and divide integers and perform mixed operations on integers

**What is numbers?**

Numbers are symbols or words which represent quantity of something for example in form 1B there are forty four students.

i.e. 44 students

The numbers are represented by symbols called numerals.

Each symbol in a numeral is called a digit.

E.g. In 256 there are three digits 2, 5, and 6.

There are ten digits which are 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9

Each digit in a numeral has a value called place value.

Example in 316, 6 is called ones and can be written as 6 1 , 1 is called tens and is written as 1 10 and 3 is called hundreds written as 3 100.

Therefore 316 can be written as 3 100 +1 x 10 + 6 1 this form is called expanded form.

The system where numbers are in groups of ten is called __base ten__ numerations or decimal system numeration.The place value of every digit in decimal system numeration is ten times the place value of the next to the right.

**Table of place values:-**

(d) 5 100 + 0 10 + 1 1

**1:2 NATURAL AND WHOLE NUMBERS**

**Natural numbers**

Natural numbers are the ones that begin with 1,2, 3 to infinity.

They are counting number, they are denoted by N

Number line of natural numbers.

**Whole numbers**

Are the ones that begin by 0, 1, 2, 3, to infinity? They are denoted by W, in a number line.

**Even, odd and prime numbers**:-

**Even:** are natural numbers which are divisible by 2 without remainder.

Example: - 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.

**Odd:-**

Odd numbers are natural numbers which are not divisible by 2, when they are divided by 2 they give remainder, so the answer is not a natural numbers.

E.g: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11…………………………………………

**Prime numbers:-**

Prime numbers are natural numbers which are divisible by one and by themselves. They are the ones with only two factors.

E.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 …………………..

When a number divides exactly into another number, it is called a factor of a second number.

The second number is called a multiple of the first numbers.

e.g 16 ÷ 8 = 2 So 2 is the factor of 16 and 16 is the multiple of 2. Other factors of 16 are 8, 4, 1 and 16.

In general one (1) is a factor of every number and each number is a factor of itself.

- Factors of a number are numbers less than the given number.

- Factors are finite, and divisors of the given number.

- Multiple are number greater than the given number.

-They are infinite and dividend of a particular number.

E.g Factors of 36 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 36

Multiple of 3=3,6,9,12,15,18,21,242,730.............

__PRIME FACTORIZATION__

Is the process of writing numbers using their prime factors we use the short division in writing / factorization.

E.g Write the following as the product of their prime factors.

∴24=2×2×2×3

∴48=2×2×2×2×3

∴420=2×2×3×5×7

∴360=2×2×2×3×3×5

__THE LOWEST COMMON MULTIPLES (LCM)__

LCM is the short form of lowest or least common multiple .

E.g 2 = 2, 4 6 8 , 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24-……………

3 = 3, 6, 9, 12 15, 18, 21, 24 27, ……………….

Common multiples are = (6, 12, 18, and 24)

**LCM**** **** **** **** = 6**

E.g Find the lowest common multiples of 9, 18, 24

__Soln__

9 = 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99, 108, 117, 126………….

18 = 18, 36, 54, 72, 90, 108, 126, 144, 162, 180, 198…………………………

27 = 27, 54, 81, 108, 135, 162, 189………………………………….

Common multiples are={54,108....}

The least common multiples=54

__PROPERTIES OF WHOLE NUMBERS__

There are five properties of whole numbers.

1. **Closure property (law)**

When two or more whole numbers are operated by adding or multiplying the answer is also a whole numbers.

That is if a and b are whole numbers. Then a + b = c. C is also a whole number. a x b = d d is also a whole number.

E.g 4 + 6 = 10

** **** **** **** **** **** **** 3 **** ****5 = 15**

2. **Commutative property:-**

If a and b are whole numbers.

Then (i) a + b = b + a

(ii) a b = b a

E.g 3 + 4 = 7

4 + 3 = 7

Implies: 3 + 4 = 4 + 3

a+b=b+a

9 6 = 54

6 9 = 54

a b = b a

**3**. **Association property:-**

If a + b & c are whole number.

Then (i) (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)

(ii) (a b) c = a ( b x c)

E.g (2+3)+4=5+4

=9

2+(3+4)=2+7

=9

Implies: (2+3) + 4 = 2 + (3 + 4)

(a + b) + c = a + (b+c)

E.g. (4 2) 5 = 8 5

= 40

4 (25) = 4 10

=40

Implies (4 2) 5 = 4 (2 5)

(a x b) x c = a x (b x c)

4. **Distributive property:-**

If a, b, and c are whole numbers, then

a x (b+c) = (a b) + (a c)

E.g 4 (6 + 9) = 4 15 = 60

4(6+9)=(4×6)+(4×9)

=24+36

=60

Implies: 4 (6 9) = (4 6) + (4 9)

a x (b+c) = (a b) + (a c)

5.** Identity property:-**

If A is a whole number,

Then (i) a + 0 = 0 + a = a

0 is called an identity of addition

(ii) a 1 = 1 a = a

1 is called and identity of multiplication.

__ Exercise 1:5__**1. Match the property in left column and right column**** **** then name the property**__ __

Left hand column Right hand column

(a) 2 + (3 +5) (h) (2+3) + 5

(b) 1+ (2 +3 ) (i) (2 + 2) + 1

(c) 2+ (2 +1 ) (j) (8 +4 ) + 4

(d) 4+ (3 +5 ) (k) (1 + 2 ) + 3

(e) 1 + (1 +3) (l) (3 + 5) + 4

(f) 8 + (4 +4) (m) (1 + 1) + 3

(g) (1 + 3) + 1 (n) 1 + (1 + 3)

__ ____solution__

a and h have Associative property

b and k have Commutative property

c and I have Associative property

e and m have Commutative property

f and j have Associative property

g and n have Commutative property.

2. By using properties of whole numbers give reasons why each of the following two expressions are equal.

(a) 5 + (6 + 7) = (7 + 6) + 5

- The answer to the two expressions will be the same because they numbers have commuted.

(b) (8 + 3) + 4 = 8 + ( 4 + 3)

- When you solve this you will get the same answer because of the exchange of the numbers.

(c) 5 + (2 + 1 ) = 1 + ( 3 + 2)

- In this expression, we have seen that they are two different expressions so you cannot get the same answer from the two.

(d) (5 + 3) + 2 = 3 + ( 2 + 5)

- In this two expression you can get the same answer because only the position of numbers and brackets as the one that has changed.

3. Telling / writing equal expressions;-

(a) 2 (5 3) = (2 5) 3 - Associative property

(b) 4 (3 5) = (4 3) 4 - Associative property

(c) 2 (4 7) = 7 (2 4) - Associative property

(d) 3 (2 2) = 3 (2 2) 3 - Commutative property

(e) (3 2) 6 = 16 (2 2) - Commutative property

(f) (3 2) 3 = (2 3) 3 - Commutative property

4. Why is it permitted to write 3 x 2 x 5 x 9 without any brackets?

Because even if they are written without brackets they don’t destroy the meaning of the question / statement.

5. Express each of the following in the form of (a x b ) + (a x c)

(a) 2 (3 + 5)**= (2 **** ****3) + 2 ****5)**

(b) 4 (3 + 10)**= (4 **** ****3) + 4 ****10)**

(c) 2 x(3 + 7)** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** = (2 **** ****3) + 2 **** ****7)**

(d) 4 (3 + 1)**= (4 **** ****3) + 4 ****1)**

6. Express each of the following in the form a x (b + c)

(a) (2 5 ) + 2 3)**= 2 **** ****(5 + 3)**

(b) (5 3) + 5 7)**= 5 **** ****(3 + 7)**** **** **** **** **

(c) (2 1) + (2 3)** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** = 2 **** ****(3 + 7)**

(d) (7 3) + (7 1)**= 7**** ****((3 + 1)**

7. Calculate the following:**-**

(a) 14 5 + 16 – 4 = __82__

(b) 36 72 ÷ 4 = __648__

(c) (144 + 20) x 48 + 4 ÷ 2 = __7872__

(d) 24 (10 + 54) + 8 = __192.__

** ****1:5 INTEGERS**

The integers are whole numbers from negative infinity to positive infinity. They are denoted by Z.

The order of the size of the number 1, 2, 3, 4……. Can be represented as points on a number line

Starting from 0 to the right and other numbers from 0 to the left

Number line for Z

If we want to know which number is larger than the other we have to consider which one is to the right or left

Consider the following

* ** ** ** ** ** *

e.g. write down all the integers between -5 and 4

**Solution **

Example: present on a number line

-3 Z 5

** **-2 -1 0 1 2 3 4

-3 Z 5

** ** -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4

** **

__Operation with integers__

Integers can be operated using number lines except for division

**Addition**

**Addition of integers **

**RULE1**:To add a negative integer you move to the left on the number line.

Example

-2+-5=-7

Start at -2 move 5 steps to the left or Star at 0 move 2 steps to the left then-5 steps to the left

OR**RULE2:**To add a positive integer you move to right on number line.

Example

-4+(+6)=+12

Start at -4 move 6 steps to the right

OR

Start at 0 move 4 steps to the left then 6t steps to the right

+3+(+4)=7

Start at +3 move 4 steps to the right

-4+-6=-10

Start at -4 move 6 steps to the left

**Subtraction**** **** of integers **** **

Subtraction of positive integers gives the same result as addition of integers

RULE 1

To substract a positive integer you move to the left on the number line.

Example -4-(+3)=-7

start at -4 move 3 steps to the right

RULE2

To subtract a negative integer you move to the right on the number line

Example

-7-(-3)=-4

Start at -7 move 3 steps to the right**Multiplication**

The rules for multiplying are as follows

+×+=+

+×-=-

-×+=-

-×-=+

Division

The rules for division are as follows

+ ÷ += +

+ ÷ - = -

- ÷ + = -

- ÷ - = +

NOTE: The result are similar to the rules of multiplication.

Example:

-36÷6=-6

24÷6=+4

24÷-6=-4

-24÷6=-4

-24÷-6=4
