BINARY NUMBER SYSTEM
The binary numeral system, or base-2 number system
represents numeric values using two symbols, 0 and 1.

Binary system is used internally by all modern computers.

The word Binary actually come from the Latin word bini, and
means "two".

Binary digits are most often referred to as bits, short for "binary
digits.

Since binary is a base-2 system, each digit represents an
increasing power of 2, with the rightmost digit representing 2
0
,
the next representing 2
1
, then 2
2
, and so on.

Decimal number system
The Decimal numeral system (also called base ten) has ten(10) as
its base.

It is the numerical base most widely used by modern
civilizations.

Decimal counting uses the symbols 0 through 9.
Amity School of Business
OCTAL NUMBER SYSTEM
The Octal numeral system, or Oct for short, is the base-8 number
system.

It uses the digits 0 to 7.

The main problem with binary numbers is that they take up a lot
of space.

Octal is a shorter method of writing binary. Since the octal base
eight is a power of the binary base two ( 8 = 2 )

In mathematics and computer science, Hexadecimal is a
positional numeral system with base-16.

It uses sixteen distinct symbols, most often the symbols:--
09 to represent values zero to nine,
and, A- 10
B - 11
C - 12
D - 13
E - 14
F - 15

TYPES OF NUMBER
NATURAL: Numbers like 1,2,3,..,smallest natural no. is 1 but
there is no greatest number.

WHOLE: Numbers like 0,1,2,3

PRIME: A number greater then 1, which contains only two
different divisors, i.e., 1 or itself.

CO-PRIME: Two numbers a and b are said to be co-primes, if
their H.C.F. is 1. e.g., (2, 3), (4, 5), (7, 9), (8, 11), etc. are co-primes

COMPOSITE: A number greater then 1 which contains more
than two different divisors is 4,6,8,9..
Amity School of Business
REAL: A number that can be written as a terminating or
nonterminating decimal; a rational or irrational number.

RATIONAL: Each rational number is a ratio of two integers: a
numerator and a non-zero denominator. Any repeating or
terminating decimal represents a rational number. Since
denominator can be 1, hence all integers are also rational no.s.

IRRATIONAL: Irrational numbers include 2, , and e. The
decimal expansion of an irrational number continues forever
without repeating.

Factors and Multiples : If a number a divides another number
b exactly, we say that a is a factor of b. In this case, b is called a
multiple of a.

Least Common Multiple (L.C.M.) : The least number which is
exactly divisible by each one of the given numbers is called their
L.C.M.

Factorization Method of Finding L.C.M.: Resolve each one of the
given numbers into a product of prime factors. Then, L.C.M. is
the product of highest powers of all the factors,
HCF & LCM
Amity School of Business
HCF & LCM
Highest Common Factor (H.C.F.) or Greatest Common Measure
(G.C.M.) or Greatest Common Divisor (G.C.D.).

The H.C.F. of two or more than two numbers is the greatest
number that divides each of them exactly.

There are two methods of finding the H.C.F. of a given set of
numbers :
Factorization Method: Express each one of the given numbers
as the product of prime factors . The product of least powers
of common prime factors gives H.C.F.
Division Method: To find the H.C.F. of two given numbers.
Divide the larger number by the smaller one

DIVISIBILITY TEST
Divisibility By 2 : A number is divisible by 2, if its unit's digit is any
of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8.
Divisibility By 3 : A number is divisible by 3, if the sum of its digits
is divisible by 3.
Divisibility By 4 : A number is divisible by 4, if the number formed
by the last two digits is divisible by 4.
Divisibility By 5 : A number is divisible by 5, if its unit's digit is
either 0 or 5.
Divisibility By 6 : A number is divisible by 6, if it is divisible by
both 2 and 3.
Divisibility By 7 : Double the last digit and subtract it from the
remaining leading truncated number.
Divisibility by 7 : Make pairs of 3 starting from right, add all even
and odd pairs together, then if the difference of sum of all odd pairs

PERCENTAGE
Percent means hundredths.

E.g. x percent means x hundredths, & is written as x%.

To express x% as a fraction: We write, x% = x/100.

To express a/b as a percent: We write, a/b =((a/b)*100)%.

KEY CONCEPTS
If A is R% more than B, then B is less than A by :--
[(R/(100+R))*100]%.

If A is R% less than B , then B is more than A by :--
[(R/(100-R))*100]%.

If the price of a commodity increases by R%, then the reduction
in consumption so as not to increase the expenditure is :--
[R/(100+R))*100]%.

If the price of the commodity decreases by R%, then the increase
in consumption so as to decrease the expenditure is :--
[(R/(100-R)*100]%.

increases at the rate of R% per annum, then :

PROFIT & LOSS
COST PRICE: The price at which article is purchased.
Abbreviated as C.P.
SELLING PRICE: The price at which article is sold. Abbreviated
as S.P.
PROFIT OR GAIN: IF SP IS GREATER THAN CP. (S.P.>C.P.)
LOSS: IF SP IS LESS THAN CP. (S.P.<C.P.)
Usually Gain or Loss is expressed as a percentage of C.P.
MARKED PRICE: The price at which an article marked.
Abbreviated as M.P. Usually discount is offered at M.R.P., and
the Discount=M.P.S.P.

If the trader professes to sell his goods at CP but uses false
weights, then:--


If the CP of two articles purchased is same. One of the two is
sold at a gain of x% and the other is sold at a loss of x%, then on
the whole there is no loss, no gain.

If the SP of two articles is same. One of the two is sold at a gain
of x% and the other is sold at a loss of x%, then there is always a
loss, given as:-
