4.1 TEXT (Read the text and do the tasks that follow.)
FRACTIONS
There are three methods of dealing with fractions:
1. by expressing each fraction as the sum of fraction as the sum of fractions
with unit numerators, e.g.
3
1
2
1
6
5
+ =
2. by diving the unit into subunits which are given special names, e.g. the
foot is divided into twelve parts and each twelfth part called an inch;
3. by using fractions whose denominators are powers of the same number,
e.g.
100
5
10
7
4
3
+ =
12
The Egyptians used the first method and developed a high degree of skill in it.
The second method was used by the Romans, who divided their pound, their foot and
one of their coins into twelfths; these fractions were called unciae, from which we get
the words inch and ounce. The third method dates back to the Babylonians, who used
fractions with denominators which were powers of 60; the Greeks also this method in
scientific work.
It was not until Simon Stevin (15481620) published his essay on decimal
fractions in 1585 that the third method, with denominators which all powers of 10,
became generally adopted. Stevin was an important government official in the
Netherlands in the time of the struggle against Spain. Many authors had used decimal
fractions in particular problems, and decimal point first appeared in print as early as
in 1492, but Stevin was the originator of general rules for the use of decimal
fractions.

APPENDIX.
AGE PROBLEM
Once there lived a clever king. One day a scientist came to him and surprised him
with his knowledge. He amused the king by telling him many things that were new
and interesting. Finally, the king wanted to find out the age of the scientist but the did
not want to ask him.
Professor, said the king, I have an interesting problem for you. Think of the
number of the month of your birth, but dont tell me.
The scientist was 60 years old, and his birthday was in December. So he thought
of 12.
All right, he said.
Multiply it by two, said the king.
I have done it.
Add 5.
I have.
Now multiply by 50.
Yes.
Subtract 365.
Yes.
Add your age.
Yes.
Add 115.
Yes.
And now, said the king, tell me result.
Twelve hundred and sixty, answered the scientist.
Thank you, said the king. You were born in December and now you are sixty
years old.
How do you know that? asked the scientist.
From your answer, replied the king.
Oh! the professor said laughing, That is a polite way to find out ones age.
Can you find out your friends age in the same way?
FIND THE NUMBERS
Can you find two numbers composed only of ones which give the same result
when you add them and when you multiply them? I and 11 are very close, but they
are not the numbers which you must find, because if you add them, you will have
12, and if you multiply them, you will have only 11.
HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS.
1. Arrange 4 eights so that they will exactly equal 1.
2. Arrange 4 fives in one line to make 100.
31
3. Arrange the numbers 1,2,3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8and 9 so that they will make exactly
100.
STRANGE FIGURES.
The father asked his three sons to write four numbers using five odd figures so
that they would equal fourteen.
Can you do it?
AT THE ZOO.
One day a man went to the Zoo with a bag of nuts. He stopped near three cages of
monkeys and decided to give them all the nuts in the bag.
If I divide the nuts equally among the eleven monkeys in the first cage, he
thought, one nut will remain. If I divide equally among the thirteen monkeys in
the second cage, eight nuts will remain. If I divide them among the seventeen
monkeys in the third cage , three nuts will remain. And if I divide the nuts equally
among the fortyone monkeys in all three cages or among the monkeys in any two
cages, some nuts will remain too. How can I I divide them so that none will
remain?
Could you help the man to divide his nuts among the monkeys?
MEASURE THEWATER.
A girl was sent to the well with two jugs. One of them contained 7 litres and the
other 11 litres. She had to bring back exactly 2 litres of water.
How could she do it? What is the smallest number of times she had to fill and
empty her jugs?

4. Strange Figures
Write the following four numbers composed of five odd figures 11, 1, 1, 1.
After addition you will have 14.
5. At the Zoo.
The smallest number of nuts is 2.179. The best way to solve this problem is
to deal first with the first two cages and find that 34 will satisfy the case for 11
and 13 monkeys. Then you must find the smallest number which will satisfy the
condition for the 17 monkeys.
6.Measure the Water
The smallest number of times the girl had to fill and empty her jugs is 14.
Here is how she could do it: 7litre jug: 7; 0; 7; 3;3;0;7; 6; 6; 0; 7; 2.
11litre jug: 0; 7; 7; 11; 0; 3; 3; 10; 10; 11; 0; 6; 6; 11.
