Unformatted text preview: Maths Study Sheet 5 Operations with Decimals Addition and EU btractien decimals dealing with operations part 2 — This UNIT censists at 4 Parts. Part Efren leek at the arithmetic eperatiens applied tn decimals. When yeu have werked threugh this Part, ynu will i have examined in detail the eperatinns nf additien, subtractien. multiplication and divisien ef decimals Pie—requisites: An understanding ef the fnur nperatiens in the arithmetic ef whele numbers. Familiarity with Part 1 at this UNIT. Mest peeple use a calculater te carry nut the eperatiens described in this Part, and se it may be regarded as an eptinnal part. Hewever yeu may find it helpful in deepen yeur understanding. In Part 1 we leaked at hew we multiply and divide. decimals by pewers ef it]. New we censider briefly the uperatiens ef additinn and subtractien, and than general multiplicatien and diyisien ef decimals. A calculater can be used in check all the calculatinns in this Part. Decimal peints sheuld be aligned and all digits placed carefully in their appre— priale pusitien in the units, tenths. hundredths, pesitien. Then the rules fer addingi subtracting whnle numbers apply. Examples: {i} Add 5.?2 and 0.1534 {ii} Subtract 0.034 [rem 5.12 {i} 5.?2 {ii} 5.120 [11:34 + magi, 6.354 5.0845 Multi pIicatiDn (a) in multiply a decimal by a whale nuniben plate the units digit tif the multiplier under the last figure [if the iiiultipliearul and tarry nut multiplication as usual.
