Decimals
Working with Decimals
1.
Decimals are a very important and particular set of fractions. They are fractions whose
denominators are powers of 10, i.e. 10, 100, 1000, 10000 etc (do not be concerned
about the meaning of 'powers of 10', you will deal with this later in the course). Decimals
are not written in the usual fraction form, but in shorthand using a decimal point.
Examples:
a)
1
= 0.1
10
d) 5
2.
b)
7
= 5.7
10
e)
1
= 0.01
100
63
c)
1
= 0.001
1000
7
= 63.07

If you have difficulty in relating decimals to fractions, the following table may help.

The number of digits after the decimal point is called decimal places.
Examples:
4.
a)
b)
c)
d)
In addition of decimals, particular care must be taken to ensure that decimal points are
in line.
Example:

22.94
When multiplying decimals, ignore the decimal point until the final answer is obtained,
then count the number of decimal places in both the numbers being multiplied. This is
the number of decimal places in the answer.
Example:
Note: It does not matter which you multiply first (i.e. the 9, the 3 or the 1) providing 00 is
placed before the answer when multiplying out the 100s (in this case the 9) and 0 is
placed before the answer when multiplying out the 10s (in this case the 3) So the above
calculation could have looked like this:

Round to Even Method: This method is also known as unbiased rounding, convergent
rounding, statistician's rounding or bankers' rounding. It is identical to the common method of
rounding except when the digit(s) following the rounding digit start with a five and have no nonzero digits after it. The new algorithm is:
With all rounding schemes there are two possible outcomes: increasing the rounding digit by
one or leaving it alone. With traditional rounding, if the number has a value less than the halfway mark between the possible outcomes, it is rounded down; if the number has a value exactly
half-way or greater than half-way between the possible outcomes, it is rounded up. The roundModule 1.1 Aritmetic

to-even method is the same except that numbers exactly half-way between the possible
outcomes are sometimes rounded up - sometimes down.
Although it is customary to round the number 4.5 up to 5, in fact 4.5 is no nearer to 5 than it is to
4 (it is 0.5 away from both).
When dealing with large sets of scientific or statistical data, where trends are important,
traditional rounding on average biases the data upwards slightly. Over a large set of data, or
when many subsequent rounding operations are performed as in digital signal processing, the
round-to-even rule tends to reduce the total rounding error, with (on average) an equal portion
of numbers rounding up as rounding down. This generally reduces the upwards skewing of the
result.
Round-to-even is used rather than round-to-odd as the latter rule would prevent rounding to a
result of zero.
Examples:
3.016 rounded to hundredths is 3.02 (because the next digit (6) is 6 or more)
3.013 rounded to hundredths is 3.01 (because the next digit (3) is 4 or less)
3.015 rounded to hundredths is 3.02 (because the next digit is 5, and the hundredths
digit (1) is odd)
3.045 rounded to hundredths is 3.04 (because the next digit is 5, and the hundredths
digit (4) is even)
3.04501 rounded to hundredths is 3.05 (because the next digit is 5, but it is followed by
non-zero digits)
Significant Figures
Rounding to n significant figures is a form of rounding. Significant figures (also called significant
digits) can also refer to a crude form of error representation based around significant figure
rounding.
Rounding to n significant figures is a more general-purpose technique than rounding to n
decimal places, since it handles numbers of different scales in a uniform way.
Rules of Significant Figures
All non-zero digits are significant. Example: '123.45' has five significant figures: 1,2,3,4
and 5.
Zeros appearing in between two non-zero digits are significant. Example: '101.12' has
five significant figures: 1,0,1,1,2.
All zeros appearing to the right of an understood decimal point or non-zeros appearing to
the right of a decimal after the decimal point are significant. Example: '12.2300' has six
significant figures: 1,2,2,3,0 and 0. The number '0.00122300' still only has six significant
figures (the zeros before the '1' are not significant). In addition, '12.00' has four significant
figures.
All zeros appearing in a number without a decimal point and to the right of the last nonzero digit are not significant unless indicated by a bar. Example: '1300' has two
significant figures: 1 and 3. The zeros are not considered significant because they don't
have a bar. However, 1300.0 has five significant figures.
1-36
Copyright Ayr College, 2010
However, this last convention is not universally used; it is often necessary to determine from
context whether trailing zeros in a number without a decimal point are intended to be significant.
Digits may be important without being 'significant' in this usage. For instance, the zeros in '1300'
or '0.005' are not considered significant digits, but are still important as placeholders that
establish the number's magnitude. A number with all zero digits (e.g. '0.000') has no significant
digits, because the uncertainty is larger than the actual measurement.
Examples:
Rounding to 2 significant figures:
One issue with rounding to n significant figures is that the value of n is not always clear. This
occurs when the last significant figure is a zero to the left of the decimal point. For example, in
the final example above, when 19 800 is rounded to 20 000, it is not clear from the rounded
value what n was used - n could be anything from 1 to 5. The level of rounding can be specified
explicitly. The abbreviation s.f. is sometimes used, for example "20,000 to 2 s.f."
Scientific notation could be used to reduce the ambiguity, as in (2.0 10 4). As always, the best
approach is to state the uncertainty separately and explicitly, as in 20,000 1%, so that
significant-figures rules do not apply.
A less common method of presenting ambiguous significant figures is underlining the last
significant figure of a number, for example "20000"
Decimal Places
The precision of a value describes the number of digits that are used to express that value. In
a scientific setting this would be the total number of digits (sometimes called the significant
digits) or, less commonly, the number of fractional digits or places (the number of digits following
the point). This second definition is useful in financial and engineering applications where the
number of digits in the fractional part has particular importance.
In both cases, the term precision can be used to describe the position at which an inexact result
will be rounded. For example, in floating-point arithmetic, a result is rounded to a given or fixed
precision, which is the length of the resulting significand. In financial calculations, a number is
often rounded to a given number of places (for example, to two places after the point for many
world currencies).
As an illustration, the decimal quantity 12.345 can be expressed with various numbers of
significant digits or decimal places. If insufficient precision is available then the number is
Module 1.1 Aritmetic
1-37
Copyright Ayr College, 2010
rounded in some manner to fit the available precision. The following table shows the results for
various total precisions and decimal places, with the results rounded to nearest where ties
round up or to an even digit (the most common rounding modes).
Note that it is often not appropriate to display a figure with more digits than that which can be
measured. For instance, if a device measures to the nearest gram and gives a reading of
12.345 kg, it would create false precision if you were to express this measurement as
12.34500 kg.

Median:
Mode:
Calculating Mean
To find the mean, you need to add up all the data, and then divide this total by the number of
values in the data.
Example 1: Find the Mean of
2, 2, 3, 5, 5, 7, 8
32 7 = 4.57...
2, 3, 3, 4, 6, 7
2 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 7 = 25
25 6 = 4.33...
1-39
Copyright Ayr College, 2010
Calculating Median
To find the median, you need to put the values in order, then find the middle value. If there are
two values in the middle then you find the mean of these two values.
Example 1: Find the median of
2, 2, 3, 5, 5, 7, 8
2, 3, 3, 4, 6, 7
2 , 3 , (3 , 4) , 6 , 7
This time there are two values in the middle. They have been put in brackets. The median is
found by calculating the mean of these two values: (3 + 4) 2 = 3.5
So the median is 3.5
Calculating Mode
The mode is the value which appears the most often in the data. It is possible to have more
than one mode if there is more than one value which appears the most.
Example 1: Find the mode of
The data values:
2, 2, 3, 5, 5, 7, 8
2,2,3,5,5,7,8
The values which appear most often are 2 and 5. They both appear more time than any of the
other data values.
So the modes are 2 and 5
Example 2: Find the mode of
2, 3, 3, 4, 6, 7

Calculating Range
To find the range, you first need to find the lowest and highest values in the data. The range is
found by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value.
Example 1: Find the range of
2, 2, 3, 5, 5, 7, 8

Right Angles
A right angle is an angle measuring 90 degrees. Two lines or line segments that meet at a right
angle are said to be perpendicular. Note that any two right angles are supplementary angles (a
right angle is its own angle supplement).
Complementary Angles
Two angles are called complementary angles if the sum of their degree measurements equals
90 degrees. One of the complementary angles is said to be the complement of the other.
Example:
These two angles are complementary.
Note that these two angles can be "pasted" together to form a right angle!

Triangles
Properties of shapes.
The 3 properties of shapes that we are going to look at are:
1. The number of sides
2. The interior angles (the angles inside).
3. The length of the sides.
These properties help use to remember which shapes are which and why they are so called (in
some cases).
Let's start with a shape that has 3 sides: TRIANGLES (tri- means 3).
Triangles ALWAYS have 3 sides.
The interior angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.
Definitions
Here are the triangles you are expected to know about:
1. Equilateral Triangle
2. Isosceles Triangle
3. Right- Angled Triangle
4. Scalene Triangle
2.
Congruent and Similar are two words usually applied to triangles but can equally be applied to
other shapes.
Congruent triangles are two triangles which have equal angles and are the same size (i.e.
identical in every way) but may be oriented differently.
Similar triangles are two triangles which have the same angles but are of different size.

3.
Equilateral Triangle
An equilateral triangle has got 3 sides of equal length and 3 angles that are equal.
Since ALL the angles in a triangle add up to 180 then 180 divided by 3 must be 60.
Isosceles Triangle
An Isosceles triangle has got two sides of equal length and 2 angles equal.
What is the value of the angle at the top of this Isosceles triangle?
The answer is 80. All angles in a triangle add up to 180 so 180 - (50 + 50) = 80
So an isosceles triangle has only got two sides of equal length and two angles the same.
1-58

5.
The right angled triangle contains a right angle (an angle of 90)
In a right angled triangle what must the other two angles add up to 90 because all the angles in
a triangle add up to 180 and a Right Angled Triangle has got one angle of 90.
6.
Scalene Triangle
A scalene triangle is the easiest of them all. The scalene triangle has got NO sides of equal
length and NO angles the same.
