Activity: adding and subtracting of decimal fractions [lo 1.7.4]

17. ADDING AND SUBTRACTING OF DECIMAL FRACTIONS:

17.1 Do you still remember?

It is very easy to add and subtract decimal fractions. We do it in exactly

the same way that we would add and subtract whole numbers.

Just be certain that you write:

  • the tenths in the tenths column.
  • the hundredths in the hundredths column.
  • the thousandths in the thousandths column.

17.2 Calculate:

a) n = 284,523 + 715,432

b) d = 476,897 + 325,486

c) k = 532,298 – 416,549

d) b = 785,361 – 364,562

18. BRAIN-TEASER!

  • Write two elevenths as a decimal fraction. Then write nine elevenths as a decimal fraction. Add the two answers together.

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

  • You already know that 2 elevenths plus 9 elevenths = 11 elevenths = one !
  • How do you explain the above answer?

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

19. Let us see how you do in the following mental test.

a) 0,6 + 0,4 = .................

b) 2,4 + 0,9 = .................

c) 0,27 + 0,4 = .................

d) 5 – 0,7 = .................

e) 3,8 + 2,6 = .................

f) 3,2 – 0,5 = .................

g) 3,45 – 0,05 = .................

h) 3,45 – 2,2 = .................

i) 3,45 – 2,4 = .................

j) 2,65 + 4,05 = .................

k) 4 – 1,02 = .................

l) 0,39 + 0,73 = .................

m) 3,25 + 1,75 = .................

n) 4,9 + 3,7 = .................

o) 12 – 3,8 = .................

  • Complete by ticking the applicable block:
MYMARKS
IMPROVED
GOT THE SAME RESULT
DID WORSE
when I compare my results with the results of the previous mental test.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.

Assessment Standard 1.7: We know this when the learner estimates and calculates by selecting and using operations appropriate to solving problems that involve:

1.7.4 addition, subtraction and multiplication of positive decimals to at least 2 decimal places.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
