II. Conversion of a Decimal Into Vulgar Fraction : Put 1 in the denominator under the decimal

point and annex with it as many zeros as is the number of digits after the decimal point. Now,

remove the decimal point and reduce the fraction to its lowest terms.

Thus, 0.25=25/100=1/4;2.008=2008/1000=251/125.

III. 1. Annexing zeros to the extreme right of a decimal fraction does not change its value

Thus, 0.8 = 0.80 = 0.800, etc.

places, then we remove the decimal sign.

Thus, 1.84/2.99 = 184/299 = 8/13; 0.365/0.584 = 365/584=5

placed under each other that the decimal points lie in one column. The numbers

so arranged can now be added or subtracted in the usual way.

point to the right by as many places as is the power of 10.

Thus, 5.9632 x 100 = 596,32; 0.073 x 10000 = 0.0730 x 10000 = 730.

them without the decimal point. Now, in the product, the decimal point is marked

off to obtain as many places of decimal as is the sum of the number of decimal

places in the given numbers.

Suppose we have to find the product (.2 x .02 x .002). Now, 2x2x2 = 8. Sum of

decimal places = (1 + 2 + 3) = 6. .2 x .02 x .002 = .000008.

number without considering the decimal point, by the given counting number.

Now, in the quotient, put the decimal point to give as many places of decimal as

there are in the dividend.

Suppose we have to find the quotient (0.0204 + 17). Now, 204 ^ 17 = 12. Dividend

contains 4 places of decimal. So, 0.0204 + 17 = 0.0012.

5. Dividing a Decimal Fraction By a Decimal Fraction : Multiply both the dividend and the

divisor by a suitable power of 10 to make divisor a whole number. Now, proceed as above.

Thus, 0.00066/0.11 = (0.00066*100)/(0.11*100) = (0.066/11) = 0.006V

descending order of magnitude. Then, convert each one of the given fractions in the decimal

form, and arrange them accordingly.

Suppose, we have to arrange the fractions 3/5, 6/7 and 7/9 in descending order.

continuously, then such a number is called a recurring decimal.

In a recurring decimal, if a single figure is repeated, then it is expressed by putting a dot on

it. If a set of figures is repeated, it is expressed by putting a bar on the set

______

Thus 1/3 = 0.3333….= 0.3; 22 /7 = 3.142857142857.....= 3.142857

Pure Recurring Decimal: A decimal fraction in which all the figures after the decimal point

are repeated, is called a pure recurring decimal.

Conve rting a Pure Recurring Decimal Into Vulgar Fraction : Write the repeated figures

only once in the numerator and take as many nines in the denominator as is the number of

repeating figures.

Mixed Recurring Decimal: A decimal fraction in which some figures do not repeat and

some of them are repeated, is called a mixed recurring decimal.

e.g., 0.17333 .= 0.173.

Conve rting a Mixed Recurring Decimal Into Vulgar Fraction : In the numerator, take the

difference between the number formed by all the digits after decimal point (taking repeated

digits only once) and that formed by the digits which are not repeated, In the denominator,

take the number formed by as many nines as there are repeating digits followed by as many

zeros as is the number of non-repeating digits.

____

0.2273 = (2273 – 22)/9900 = 2251/9900

1. (a + b)(a- b) = (a2 - b2 ).

2. (a + b)2 = (a2 + b2 + 2ab).

3. (a - b)2 = (a2 + b2 - 2ab).

4. (a + b+c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 +2(ab+bc+ca)

5. (a3 + b3 ) = (a + b) (a2 - ab + b2 )

6. (a3 - b3 ) = (a - b) (a2 + ab + b2 ).

7. (a3 + b3 + c3 - 3abc) = (a + b + c) (a2 + b2 + c2-ab-bc-ca)

8. When a + b + c = 0, then a3 + b3 + c3 = 3abc

SOLVED EXAMPLES

Ex. 1. Convert the following into vulgar fraction:

(i) 0.75 (ii) 3.004 (iii) 0.0056

Sol. (i). 0.75 = 75/100 = 3/4 (ii) 3.004 = 3004/1000 = 751/250 (iii) 0.0056 = 56/10000 =

7/1250

Ex. 2. Arrange the fractions 5/8, 7/12, 13/16, 16/29 and 3/4 in ascending orde r of magnitude.

Sol. Converting each of the given fractions into decimal form, we get :

5/8 = 0.624, 7/12 = 0.8125, 16/29 = 0.5517, and 3/4 = 0.75

Now, 0.5517<0.5833<0.625<0.75<0.8125

16/29 < 7/12 < 5/8 < 3/4 < 13/16

Ex. 3. arrange the fractions 3/5, 4/7, 8/9, and 9/11 in their descending order.

Sol. Clearly, 3/5 = 0.6, 4/7 = 0.571, 8/9 = 0.88, 9/111 = 0.818.

Now, 0.88 > 0.818 > 0.6 > 0.571

8/9 > 9/11 > 3/4 > 13/ 16

Ex. 4. Evaluate : (i) 6202.5 + 620.25 + 62.025 + 6.2025 + 0.62025

(ii) 5.064 + 3.98 + 0.7036 + 7.6 + 0.3 + 2

Answer: C) 153.6003

Explanation:

4*A + 7/B + 2*C + 5/D + 6*E =47.2506

=> 4 * A + 7/B + 2 *C + 5/D + 6*E = 40 + 7 + 0.2 + 0.05 + 0.0006

Comparing the terms on both sides, we get :

4*A =40, 7/B = 7, 2*C = 0.2, 5/D = 0.05, 6*E = 0.0006
