NUMBER SYSTEMS In Hindu Arabic System, we use ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 called digits to represent any number. This is the decimal system where we use the numbers 0 to 9. 0 is called insignificant digit. A group of figures, denoting a number is called a numeral. For a given numeral, we start from extreme right as Unit’s place, Ten’s place, Hundred’s place and so on.

Ten Crore 108

Illustration 1 We represent the number 309872546 as shown below:

6

We read it as “Thirty crores, ninety- eight lacs, seventy-two thousands five hundred and forty-six.” In this numeral: The place value of 6 is 6 ×1 = 6 The place value of 4 is 4 ×10 = 40 The place value of 5 is 5 ×100 = 500 The place value of 2 is2 ×1000 = 2000 and so on. The face value of a digit in a numbers is the value itself wherever it may be. Thus, the face value of 7 in the above numeral is 7. The face value of 6 in the above numeral is 6 and in the above numeral is 6 and so on. NUMBER SYSTEM Natural numbers Counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,... are know as natural numbers. The set of all natural numbers, can be represented by N= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5,….} Whole numbers If we include 0 among the natural numbers, then the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … are called whole numbers. The set of whole number can be represented by W= {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…} Clearly, every natural number is a whole number but 0 is a whole number which is not a natural number. INTEGERS All counting numbers and their negatives including zero are know as integers. The set of integers can be represented by Z or I = {…-4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, …} Positive Integers The set I+ ={1, 2, 3, 4,…} is the set of all positive integers. Clearly, positive integers and natural numbers are synonyms. Negative Integers _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

The set I- = {-1, -2, -3…} is the set of all negative integers. 0 is neither positive nor negative. Non-negative Integers The set {0, 1, 2, 3,…} is the set all non-negative integers. Rational Numbers The numbers of the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0, are known as rational numbers, e.g. 4/7, 3/2, -5/8, 0/1, -2/3, etc. The set of all rational numbers is denoted by Q. i.e. Q ={x:x =p/q; p,q belong to I, q≠0}. Since every natural number ‘a’ can be written as a/1, every natural number is a rational number. Since 0 can be written as 0/1 and every non-zero integer ‘a’ can be written as a/1, every integer is a rational number. Every rational number has a peculiar characteristic that when expressed in decimal form is expressible rather in terminating decimals or in non-terminating repeating decimals. For example, 1/5 =0.2, 1/3 = 0.333…22/7 = 3.1428704287, 8/44 = 0.181818…., etc. The recurring decimals have been given a short notation as 0.333…. = 0.3 4.1555… = 4.05 0.323232…= 0.32. Irrational Numbers Those numbers which when expressed in decimal from are neither terminating nor repeating decimals are known as irrational number, e.g. √2, √3, √5, π, etc. Note that the exact value of π is not 22/7. 22/7 is rational while π irrational number. 22/7 is approximate value of π. Similarly, 3.14 is not an exact value of it. Real Numbers The rational and irrational numbers combined together are called real numbers, e.g.13/21, 2/5, -3/7, √3, 4 + √2, etc. are real numbers. The set of all real numbers is denote by R. Note that the sum, difference or product of a rational and irrational number is irrational, e.g. 3+ √2, 4-√3, 2/3-√5, 4√3, -7√5 are all irrational. Even Numbers All those numbers which are exactly divisible by 2 are called even numbers, e.g.2, 6, 8, 10, etc., are even numbers. Odd Numbers All those numbers which are not exactly divisible by 2 are called odd numbers, e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 etc., are odd numbers. Prime Numbers A natural number other than 1 is a prime number if it is divisible by 1 and itself only. For example, each of the numbers 2, 3, 5, 7 etc., are prime numbers. Composite Numbers Natural numbers greater than 1which are not prime, are known as composite numbers. For example, each of the numbers 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, etc., are composite numbers. Note: 1. 2. 3.

The number 1 is neither a prime number nor composite number. 2 is the only even number which is prime Prime numbers up to 100 are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19,23, 29, 31, 37, 41,43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, i.e. 25 prime numbers between 1 and 100. 4. two numbers which have only 1 as the common factor are called co-primes or relatively prime to each other, e.g. 3 and 5 are co-primes. Note that the numbers which are relatively prime need not necessarily be prime numbers, e.g. 16 and 17 are relatively prime although 16 is not a prime number. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION (SHORT-CUT METHODS) The method is best illustrated with the help of following example: Illustration 2 54321 – (9876+8976+7689) = ? Step 1 Add 1st column:

54321 9876 8967 7689 27789

6+7+9 = 22 To obtain 1 at unit’s place add 9 to make 31. In the answer, write 9 at unit’s place and carry over 3. Step 2 Add 2nd column: 3+7+6+8=24 To obtain 2 at tens place add 8 to make 32. In the answer, write 8 at ten’s place and carry over 3. Step 3 Add 3rd column: 3 + 8 + 9 + 6 = 26 To obtain 3 at hundred’s place, add 7 to make 33. In the answer, write 7 at hundred’s place and carry over 3. Step 4 Add 4th column: 3 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 27 To obtain 4 at thousand’s place add 7 to make 34. In the answer, write 7 at thousand’s place and over 3. Step 5 5th column: To obtain 5 at ten-thousand’s place add 2 to it to make 5. In the answer, write 2 at the ten-thousand’s place. ∴ 54321 – (9876 + 8967 + 7689) = 27789. Common Factor A common factor of two or more numbers is a number which divides each of them exactly. For example, 4 is a common factor of 8 and 12. Highest common factor Highest common factor of two or more numbers is the greatest number that divides each one of them exactly. For example, 6 is the highest common factor of 12, 18 and 24. Highest Common Factor is also called Greatest Common Divisor or Greatest Common Measure. Symbolically, these can be written as H.C.F. or G.C.D. or G.C.M., respectively. Methods of Finding H.C.F. I. Method of Prime Factors Step 1 Express each one of the given numbers as the product of prime factors. [A number is said to be a prime number if it is exactly divisible by 1 and itself but not by any other number, e.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, etc. are prime numbers] Step 2 Choose Common Factors. Step 3 Find the product of lowest powers of the common factors. This is the required H.C.F. of given numbers. Illustration 1 Find the H.C.F. of 70 and 90. Solution 70 = 2 × 5 × 7 90 = 2 × 5 × 9 Common factors are 2 and 5. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

∴ H.C.F. = 2 × 5 = 10.

Illustration 2 Find the H.C.F. of 3332, 3724 and 4508 Solution 3332 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 17 3724 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 19 4508 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 23 ∴ H.C.F. = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 = 196. Illustration 3 Find the H.C.F. of 360 and 132. Solution 360 = 23 × 32 × 5 132 = 22 × 31 × 11 ∴ H.C.F. = 22 × 31 × = 12. Illustration 4 If x = 23 × 35 × 59 and y = 25 × 37 × 511, find H.C.F. of x and y. Solution The factors common to both x and y are 23, 35 and 59. ∴ H.C.F. = 23 × 35 × 59. II. Method of Division A. For two numbers: Step 1 Greater number is divided by the smaller one. Step 2 Divisor of (1) is divided by its remainder. Step 3 Divisor of (2) is divided by its remainder. This is continued until no remainder is left. H.C.F. is the divisor of last step. Illustration 5 Find the H.C.F. of 3556 and 3444. 3444 )3556 (1 3444 112 ) 3444 ( 30 3360 84 ) 112 ( 1 84 28 ) 84 ( 3 84 × B. For more than two numbers: Step 1 Any two numbers are chosen and their H.C.F. is obtained. Step 2 H.C.F. of H.C.F. (of(1)) and any other number is obtained. Step 3 H.C.F. of H.C.F. (of (2)) and any other number (not chosen earlier) is obtained. This process is continued until all numbers have been chosen. H.C.F. of last step is the required H.C.F. Illustration 6 Find the greatest possible length which can be used to measure exactly the lengths 7 m, 3 m 85 cm, 12 m 95 cm. Solution Required length = (H.C.F. of 700, 385, 1295) cm = 35 cm.

For Example, 32 is a common multiple of 8 and 16. 8 × 4 = 32 16 × 2 = 32. Least Common Multiple The least common multiple of two or more given numbers is the least or lowest number which is exactly divisible by each of them. For example, consider the two numbers 12 and 18. Multiples of 12 are 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, … Multiple of 18 are 18, 36, 54, 72, … Common multiples are 36, 72, … ∴ Least common multiple, i.e. L.C.M. of 12 and 18 is 36. Methods of Finding L.C.M. A. Method of Prime Factors Step 1 Resolve each given number into prime factors. Step 2 Take out all factors with highest powers that occur in given numbers. Step 3 Find the product of these factors. This product will be the L.C.M. Illustration 7 Find the L.C.M. of 32, 48, 60 and 320. Solution 32 = 25 × 1 48 = 24 × 3 60 = 22 × 3 × 5 320 = 26 × 6 ∴ L.C.M. = 26 × 3 × 5 = 960.

B. Method of Division Step 1 The given numbers are written in a line separated by common. Step 2 Divide by any one of the prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, … which will divide at least any two of the given nu8mbers exactly. The quotients and the undivided numbers are written in a line below the first. Step 3 Step 2 is repeated until a line of numbers (prime to each other) appears. 1 Find the product of all divisors and numbers in the last line which is the required L.C.M. Illustration 8 Find the L.C.M. of 12, 15, 20 and 54. Solution2 12, 15, 20, 54 2 6, 15, 10, 27 3 3, 15, 5, 27 5 1, 5, 5, 9 1, 1, 1, 9 L.C.M. = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 1 × 1 × 1 × 9 = 540. Note: Before finding the L.C.M. or H.C.F., we must ensure that all quantities are expressed in the same unit. Some Useful Short-Cut Methods 1.

RATIOS, PROPORTIONS AND VARIATION A ratio is a comparison of two quantities by division. It is a relation that one quantity bears to another with respect to magnitude. In other words, ratio means what part one quantity is of another. The quantities may be of same kind or different kinds. For example, when we consider the ratio of the weight 45 kg of a bag of rice to the weight 29kg of a bag of sugar we are considering the quantities of same kind but when we talk of allotting 2 cricket bats to 5 sportsmen, we are considering quantities of different kinds. Normally, we consider the ratio between quantities of the same kind. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

If a and b are two numbers, the ratio of a to b is a/b or a +b and is denoted by a : b. The two quantities that are being compared are called terms. The first is called antecedent and the second term is called consequent. For example, the ratio 3 : 5 represents 3/5 with antecedent 3 and consequent 5. Note: 1. A ratio is a number, so to find the ratio of two quantities, they must be expressed in the same units. 2. A ratio does not change if both of is terms are multiplied or divided by the same number. Thus, 2/3= 4/6 = 6/9 etc. TYPES OF RATIOS

1.

Duplicate Ratio The ratio of the squares of two numbers is called the duplicate ratio of the two numbers. For example, 32/42 or 9/16 is called the duplicate ratio of ¾. 2. Triplicate Ratio The ratio of the cubes of two numbers is called the triplicate ratio of the two numbers. For example, 33/43 or 27/64 is triplicate ratio of ¾. 3. Sub-duplicate Ratio The ratio of the square roots of two numbers is called the sub-duplicate ratio of two numbers. For example, 3/4 is the sub- duplicate ratio of 9/16. 4. Sub-duplicate Ratio The ratio of the cube roots of two numbers is called the sub-triplicate ratio of two numbers. For example, 2/3 is the sub-triplicate ratio of 8/27. 5. Inverse Ratio or Reciprocal Ratio If the antecedent and consequent of a ratio interchange their places, the new ratio is called the inverse ratio of the first. Thus, if a : b be the given ratio, then 1/a : 1/b or b : a is its inverse ratio. For example, 3/5 is the inverse ratio of 5/3. 6. Compound Ratio The ratio of the product of the antecedents to that of the consequents of two or more given ratios is called the compound ratio. Thus, if a :b and c:d are two given rations, then ac : bd is the compound ratio of the given ratios, For example, if ¾, 4/5 and 5/7 be the given ratios, then their compound ratios is 3× 4× 5/ 4× 5× 7, that is, 3/7. PROPORTION The equality of two ratios is called proportion. If a/b = c/d, then a, b, c and d are said to be in proportion and we write a : b: : c: d. This is read as “a is to b as c is to d”. For example, since ¾ = 6/8, we write 3; 4: : 6: 8 and say 3, 4, 6 and 8 are in proportion. Each term of the ratio a/b and c/d is called a proportional. a, b, c, and d are respectively the first, second, third and fourth proportionals Here, a, d are known as extremes and b, c are known as means. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1. If four quantities are in proportion, then product of Means = product of Extremes For example, in the proportion a : b: : c: d, we have bc = ad. From this relation we see that if any three of the four quantities are given, the fourth can be determined. 2. Fourth proportional If a: b: :c :x, x is called the fourth proportional of a, b, c. We have, a/b = c/x or, x = b×c/a Thus, fourth proportional of a, b, c is b × c / a. Illustrational 1 Find a fourth proportional to the numbers 2, 5, 4. Solution Let x be the fourth proportional, then _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

2 : 5 : : 4 : x or 2/5 = 4/x. ∴ x = 5 × 4 /2 = 10. 3. Third proportional If a: b: : c: x, x is called the third proportional of a, b. We have, a/b= b/x or x= b2/a. Thus, third proportional of a. b is b2/a Illustration 2 Find a third proportional to the numbers 2.5, 1.5 Solution Let x be the third proportional, then 2.5 : 1.5 : :1.5 : x or 2.5/1.5= 1.5/x. ∴ x = 1.5 × 1.5/2.5 = 0.9 4. Mean Proportional If a: x: : x: b, x is called the mean or second proportional of a, b. We have, a/x =x/b or x2 = ab or x = √ab ∴ Mean proportional of a and b is √ab. We also say that a, x, b are in continued proportion Illustration 3 Find the mean proportional between 48 and 12. Solution Let x be the mean proportional. Then, 48 : x : : x : 12 or, 48/x = x/12 or, x2= 576 or, x=24. 5. If a/b = c/d, then (i) (a + b)/b = (c +d)/d (Componendo) (ii) (a – b)/b = (c-d)/d (Dividendo) (iii) (a + b)/a-b = c +d/c-d = (Componendo and Dividendo) (iv) a/b = a + c/b+d = (a –c)/b-d Illustration 4 The sum of two umber is c and their quotient is p/q. Find the numbers. Solution Let the numbers be x, y. Given: x + y = c …(1) and, x/y = p/q …(2) ∴ x/ x+y = p/p+q ⇒ x/c = p/p+q [Using (1)] ⇒ x = pc/p +q. SOME USEFUL SHORT-CUT METHODS 1. (a) If two numbers are in the ratio of a: b and the sum of these numbers is x, then these numbers will be ax/ a + b and bx/ a+b, respectively. or If in a mixture of x liters of, two liquids A and B in the ratio of a: b, then the quantities of liquids A and B in the mixture will be ax / a + b litres and bx/ a + b litres, respectively. (b) If three numbers are in the ratio a : b: c and the sum of these numbers is x, then these numbers will be ax / a + b + c , bx / a + b + c and cx / a + b + c, respectively. Explanation Len the three numbers in the ratio a: b: c be A, B and C. Then, A = ka, B = kb, C =kc and, A + B + C = ka + kb + kc = x ⇒ k(a+b+c) = x ⇒ k = x / a + b+ c. ∴ A = ka = ax / a + b+ c. B = kb = bx / a + b+ c. C = kc = cx / a + b+ c. Illustration 5 Two numbers are in the ratio of 4 : 5 and the sum of these numbers is 27. Find the two numbers. Solution Here, a = 4, b = 5, and x = 27. ∴ The first number = ax / a + b = 4 × 27 / 4+5 = 12. and, the second number = bx / a + b = 5 × 27 / 4+5 = 15. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

Illustration 6 Three numbers are in the ratio of 3: 4 : 8: and the sum of these numbers is 975. Find the three numbers. Solution Here, a = 3, b = 4, c = 8 and x = 975 ∴ The first number = ax / a + b+ c = (3 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 195. The second number = bx / a + b+ c = (4 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 260. and, the third number = cx / a + b+ c = (8 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 520. 2. If two numbers are in the ratio of a : b and difference between these is x, then these numbers will be a) ax/ a-b and bx/ a-b, respectively (where a > b). b) ax/ a-b and bx/ a-b, respectively (where a < b). Explanation Let the two numbers be ak and bk. Let a > b. Given : ak – bk = x ⇒ (a – b)k = x or k = x / (a-b). Therefore, the two numbers are ax / a-b and bx/ a-b. Illustration 7 Two numbers are in the ratio of 4 : 5. If the difference between these numbers is 24, then find the numbers. Solution Here, a = 4, b = 5 and x = 24. ∴ The first number = ax/ b-a = 4 × 24/5- 4 = 96 and, the second number = bx/ b-a = 5× 24 / 5-4 = 120. 3. (a). If a : b = n1 : d1 and b : c = n2 : d2, then a : b : c = (n1× n2) : (d1× n2) : (d1 × d2). (b). If a : b = n1 : d1, b : c = n2 : d2, and c : d = n3 : d3 then a : b : c : d= (n1× n2× n3) : (d1× n2× n3 ) : (d1× d2× n3 ) : (d1× d2× d3 ). Illustration 8 If A : B = 3 : 4 and B : C = 8 : 9, find A : B : C. Solution Here, n1 = 3, n2 =8, d1 =4 and d2 = 9. ∴ a : b : c = (n1× n2) : (d1× n2) : (d1× d2) = (3× 8) : (4× 8) : (4× 9) = 24 : 32 : 36 or, 6: 8 : 9. Illustration 9 If A : B = 2 : 3, B:C = 4 : 5 and C : D = 6 : 7, find A :D. Solution Here, n1 = 2, n2 = 4, n3 = 6, d1 = 3, d2 = 5 and d3 = 7. ∴ A : B : C : D = (n1× n2× n3) : (d1× n2× n3) : (d1 × d2 × n3) : (d1 × d2 × d3) = (2 × 4 × 6) : (3 × 4 × 6) : (3 × 5 × 6) : (3 × 5 × 7) = 48 : 72 : 90: 105: or, 16: 24 : 30 ; 35. Thus, A : D = 16 : 35. 4. (a) The ratio between two numbers is a : b. If x is added to each of these numbers, the ratio becomes c : d. The two numbers are given as: ax(c – d) / ad – bc and bx(c- d) / ad –bc. Explanation Let two number be ak and bk. Given : ak +x / bk+x = c/d ⇒akd +dx= cbk + cx ⇒ k(ad –bc) = x(c –d) ⇒k =x(c-d)/ ad – bc. Therefore, the two numbers are ax(c-d) / ad-bc and bx(c-d) / ad- bc (b) The ratio between two numbers is a : b. if x is subtracted from each of these numbers, the ratio becomes c : d. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

The two numbers are given as: ax(d-c) / ad-bc and bx(d-c) / ad- bc Explanation Let the two numbers be ak and bk. Given : ak-x/bk-x = c/d ⇒ akd-xd = bck-xc ⇒ k(ad-bc) = x(d-c) ⇒ k = x(d-c)/ad-bc. Therefore, the two numbers are ax(d-c)/ad-bc and bx(d-c)/ad-bc Illustration 10 Given two numbers which are in the ratio of 3 : 4, If 8 is added to each of them, their ratio is changed to 5 : 6. Find two numbers. Solution We have, a : b = 3 : 4, c : d = 5 : 6 and x = 8. ∴ The first number = ax(c – d)/ ad –bc = 3 × 8× (5-6) / (3× 6- 4 × 5) = 12. and, the second number = bx(c – d)/ ad –bc = 4 × 8× (5-6) / (3× 6- 4 × 5) = 16. Illustration 11 The ratio of two numbers is 5 : 9. If each number is decreased by 5, the ratio becomes 5: 11. Find the numbers. Solution We have, a : b = 5: 9, c: d = 5: 11 and x =5. ∴ The first number = ax (d – c)/ ad –bc = 5 × 5× (11-5)/ (5× 11- 9 × 5) = 15. and, the second number= bx(d-c)/ad-bc 9× 5× (11-5)/(5× 11-9× 5)= 27. 5. (a) If the ratio of two numbers is a: b, then the numbers that should be added to each of the numbers in order to make this ratio c : d is given by ad-bc/ c-d. Explanation Let the required number be x. Given: a+x/ b+x = c/d ⇒ ad+ xd = bc + xc ⇒ x(d-c) =bc –ad or, x =ad-bc/c-d. (b)If the ratio of two numbers is a : b, then the number that should be subtracted from each of the numbers in order to make this ratio c : d is given by bc-ad/c-d. Explanation Let the required number be x. Given: a-x/ b-x = c/d ⇒ ad- xd = bc - xc ⇒ x(c-d) =bc –ad or, x = bc-ad/c-d. Illustration 12 Find the number that must be subtracted from the terms of the ratio 5 : 6 to make it equal to 2 : 3. Solution We have a : b= 5 : 6 and c: d =2 : 3. ∴ The required number = bc-ad/ c-d = 6 × 2-5× 3/ 2-3 =3. Illustration 13 Find the number that must be added to the terms of the ratio 11 : 29 to make it equal to 11 : 20. Solution We have, a : b= 11 : 29 and c: d =11: 20. ∴ The required number = ad-bc/ c-d = 11 × 20-29× 11/ 11-20 = 11. EXERCISE

PERCENTAGES Introduction The term per cent means per hundreds or for every hundred. It is the abbreviation of the Latin phrase per centum. Scoring 60 per cent marks means out of every 100 marks the candidate scored 60 marks. The term per cent is sometimes abbreviated as p.c. The symbol % is often used for the term per cent. Thus, 40 per cent will be written as 40%. A fraction whose denominator is 100 is called a percentage and the numerator of the fraction is called rate per cent, e.g. 5/100 and 5 per cent means the same thing, i.e. 5 parts out of every hundred parts. 1. To Convert a fraction into a per cent: to convert any fraction l/m to rate per cent, multiply it by 100 and put % sign, i.e. l/m × 100% 2. To Convert a Percent into a Fraction: To convert a per cent into a fraction , drop the per cent sign and divide the number by 100. 3. To find a percentage of a given number: x % of given number (N) = x/100 × N. Some useful shortcut methods 1. (a) if A is x% more than that of B, then B is less than that of A by

x 100 + x ×100 % (b) If a is x% less than that of B, then B is more than that of A by

x 100 − x ×100 % 2. If a is x% of C and B is y% of C, then A = x/y × 100% of B. 3. (a) If two numbers are respectively x% and y% more than a third number, then the first number is

100 + x 100 + y ×100 % of the second and the second is ×100 % of the first. 100 + x 100 + y (b) If two numbers are respectively x% and y% less than a third number, then the first number is 100 − x ×100 % of the first. 100 − y

4. (a) If the price of a commodity increases by P%, then the reduction in consumption so as not to increase the

P ×100 % . 100 + P

expenditure is

(b) If the price of a commodity decreases by p%, then the increase in consumption so as not to decrease the

P ×100 % . 100 − P

expenditure is

5. If a number is changed (increased/decreased) successively by x% and y%, then net% change is given by (x+y+ (xy/100))% which represents increase or decrease in value according as the sign is +ve or –ve. If x or y indicates decrease in percentage, then put –ve sign before x or y, otherwise +ve sign. 6.

Averages & Mixtures Whenever we are asked the marks scored by us in any examination, we usually tell the marks in percentage, taking the percentage of total marks of all subjects. This percentage is called average percentage. Also, in a class, If there are 100 students, instead of knowing the age of individual student, we usually talk about average age. The average or mean or arithmetic of a number of quantities of the same kind is equal to their sum divided by the number of those quantities. For example, the average of 3, 11, 15, 18,19, and 23 is 3 + 9 +11+ 15+ 18+ 19+ 23+ /7 = 98/7 = 14. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1.

Average = sum of quantities/ Number of quantities

2. Sum of quantities = Average × Number of quantities 3.

Number of quantities = Sum of quantities/ Average

PROFIT AND LOSS Business transactions have now-a-days become common feature of life. When a person deals in the purchase and sale of any item, he either gains or loses some amount generally. The aim of any business is to earn profit. The commonly used terms in dealing with questions involving sale and purchase are: Cost Price The cost price of an article is the price at which an article has been purchased. It is the abbreviated as C.P. Selling Price The selling price of an article is the price at which an article has been sold. It is abbreviated as S.P. Profit or Gain If the selling price of an article is more that the cost price, there is a gain or profit. Thus, Profit or Gain = S.P- C.P. Loss If the cost price of an article is greater than the selling price, the suffers a loss. Thus, Loss = C.P- S.P. Note that profit and loss are always calculated with respect to the cost price of the item. Illustration 1. (i)If C.P. = Rs. 235, S.P. = Rs. 240, then profit = ? (ii) If C.P. = Rs. 116, S.P. = Rs. 107, then loss = ? Solution (i) Profit = S.P.- C.P. =Rs. 240- 235 =Rs.5. (ii) Loss = C.P.- S.P. = Rs. 116- 107 =Rs.9. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1. Gain% = (Gain × 100)/C.P Loss on Rs. 100 is Loss per cent Loss% = (Loss × 100)/C.P

Gain on Rs. 100 is Gain per cent

Illustration 2 The cost price of a shirt is Rs. 200 and selling price is Rs. 250. Calculate the % profit. Solution We have, C.P. = Rs. 200, S.P = Rs. 250. Profit = S.P.- C.P. = 250- 200 =Rs.50. ∴ Profit% = profit× 100/ C.P = 50× 100/ 250 = 25% Illustration 3 Anu bought a necklace for Rs. 750 and sold it for Rs. 675. Find her percentage loss. Solution Here, C.P. = 750, S.P. = Rs. 675. Loss= C.P- S.P. = 750-675 = Rs. 75. ∴ Loss% = Loss × 100/ C.P = 75× 100/ 750 = 10% 2. C.P = 100× S.P / (100+Gain%)

When the selling price and gain% are given:

3. S.P = (100+Gain%)× C.P/ 100

When the cost and gain per cent are given;

4. S.P = (100-Loss%)× C.P / 100

When the cost and loss per cent are given:

5. C.P =(100)× S.P / (100-Loss%)

When the selling price and loss per cent are given:

Illustration 4 Mr. Sharma buys a cooler for Rs. 4500. For how much should he so that there is a gain of 8%? Solution We have, C.P. = Rs. 4500, gain% = 8% ∴ S.P = (100+Gain%/100)× C.P. = (100+ 8/ 100) × 4500 108/100 × 4500 = Rs. 4860 Illustration 5 By selling a fridge Rs. 7200, Pankaj loses 10%. Find the cost price of the fridge.

Solution We have, S.P. = Rs. 7200, loss% = 10%. ∴ C.P =(100/100-Loss%)× S.P. = (100/100-10) × 7200 100/90 × 7200= Rs. 8000. Illustration 6 By selling a pen for Rs. 99, Mohan gains 12 ½ %. Find the cost price of the pen. Solution Here, S.P. = Rs. 99, gain% = 12 ½% or 25/2%. ∴ C.P =(100/100+Gain%)× S.P. = (100/100+25/2) × 99 = (100× 2/ 225) × 99 =Rs. 88 SOME USEFUL SHORT-CUT METHODS 1. the gain or loss per cent made by him is (xw/zy -1) × 100%.

If a man buys x items for Rs. y and sells z items for Rs. w, then

Explanation S.P. of z items = Rs. w S.P. of x items = Rs. w/z x Net profit =w/z x-y. ∴ % profit = w/z x-y/y × 100% i.e.(xw/zy -1) × 100, which represent loss, if the result is negative. Note: In the case of gain per cent the result obtained bears positive sign whereas in the case of loss per cent the result obtained bears negative sign. How to remember: 1. Cross-multiply the numbers connected by the arrows (xw and zy) 2. Mark the directon of the arrows for crossmultiplicaton. The arrow going down forms the numerator while the arrow going up forms the denominator (xw/ zy). Illustration 7 If 11 oranges are bought for Rs. 10 and sold at 10 for Rs. 11 what is the gain loss%? Solution % profit= (xw/zy -1) × 100% = (11× 11/10× 10-1) × 100% = 21/100 × 100% = 21% Illustration 8 A fruit seller buys apples at the rate of Rs 12 per dozen and sells them at the rate of 15 for Rs.12. Find his percentage gain or loss. Solution % gain or loss = (xw/ zy -1) × 100% = (12× 12/15 × 12 -1) × 100% = -36/144 × 100% = -25% Since the sign is –ve, there is a loss of 25%. 2. n articles, then % gain or loss = ( m-n/n) × 100 [If m > n, it is gain and if m n, m, n ∈ N, and xm > xn if ______

NUMBER SYSTEMS In Hindu Arabic System, we use ten symbols 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 called digits to represent any number. This is the decimal system where we use the numbers 0 to 9. 0 is called insignificant digit. A group of figures, denoting a number is called a numeral. For a given numeral, we start from extreme right as Unit’s place, Ten’s place, Hundred’s place and so on.

Crores 107

Ten Crore 108

Illustration 1 We represent the number 309872546 as shown below:

6

We read it as “Thirty crores, ninety- eight lacs, seventy-two thousands five hundred and forty-six.” In this numeral: The place value of 6 is 6 ×1 = 6 The place value of 4 is 4 ×10 = 40 The place value of 5 is 5 ×100 = 500 The place value of 2 is2 ×1000 = 2000 and so on. The face value of a digit in a numbers is the value itself wherever it may be. Thus, the face value of 7 in the above numeral is 7. The face value of 6 in the above numeral is 6 and in the above numeral is 6 and so on. NUMBER SYSTEM Natural numbers Counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,... are know as natural numbers. The set of all natural numbers, can be represented by N= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5,….} Whole numbers If we include 0 among the natural numbers, then the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … are called whole numbers. The set of whole number can be represented by W= {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…} Clearly, every natural number is a whole number but 0 is a whole number which is not a natural number. INTEGERS All counting numbers and their negatives including zero are know as integers. The set of integers can be represented by Z or I = {…-4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, …} Positive Integers The set I+ ={1, 2, 3, 4,…} is the set of all positive integers. Clearly, positive integers and natural numbers are synonyms. Negative Integers _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

The set I- = {-1, -2, -3…} is the set of all negative integers. 0 is neither positive nor negative. Non-negative Integers The set {0, 1, 2, 3,…} is the set all non-negative integers. Rational Numbers The numbers of the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0, are known as rational numbers, e.g. 4/7, 3/2, -5/8, 0/1, -2/3, etc. The set of all rational numbers is denoted by Q. i.e. Q ={x:x =p/q; p,q belong to I, q≠0}. Since every natural number ‘a’ can be written as a/1, every natural number is a rational number. Since 0 can be written as 0/1 and every non-zero integer ‘a’ can be written as a/1, every integer is a rational number. Every rational number has a peculiar characteristic that when expressed in decimal form is expressible rather in terminating decimals or in non-terminating repeating decimals. For example, 1/5 =0.2, 1/3 = 0.333…22/7 = 3.1428704287, 8/44 = 0.181818…., etc. The recurring decimals have been given a short notation as 0.333…. = 0.3 4.1555… = 4.05 0.323232…= 0.32. Irrational Numbers Those numbers which when expressed in decimal from are neither terminating nor repeating decimals are known as irrational number, e.g. √2, √3, √5, π, etc. Note that the exact value of π is not 22/7. 22/7 is rational while π irrational number. 22/7 is approximate value of π. Similarly, 3.14 is not an exact value of it. Real Numbers The rational and irrational numbers combined together are called real numbers, e.g.13/21, 2/5, -3/7, √3, 4 + √2, etc. are real numbers. The set of all real numbers is denote by R. Note that the sum, difference or product of a rational and irrational number is irrational, e.g. 3+ √2, 4-√3, 2/3-√5, 4√3, -7√5 are all irrational. Even Numbers All those numbers which are exactly divisible by 2 are called even numbers, e.g.2, 6, 8, 10, etc., are even numbers. Odd Numbers All those numbers which are not exactly divisible by 2 are called odd numbers, e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 etc., are odd numbers. Prime Numbers A natural number other than 1 is a prime number if it is divisible by 1 and itself only. For example, each of the numbers 2, 3, 5, 7 etc., are prime numbers. Composite Numbers Natural numbers greater than 1which are not prime, are known as composite numbers. For example, each of the numbers 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, etc., are composite numbers. Note: 1. 2. 3.

The number 1 is neither a prime number nor composite number. 2 is the only even number which is prime Prime numbers up to 100 are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19,23, 29, 31, 37, 41,43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97, i.e. 25 prime numbers between 1 and 100. 4. two numbers which have only 1 as the common factor are called co-primes or relatively prime to each other, e.g. 3 and 5 are co-primes. Note that the numbers which are relatively prime need not necessarily be prime numbers, e.g. 16 and 17 are relatively prime although 16 is not a prime number. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION (SHORT-CUT METHODS) The method is best illustrated with the help of following example: Illustration 2 54321 – (9876+8976+7689) = ? Step 1 Add 1st column:

54321 9876 8967 7689 27789

6+7+9 = 22 To obtain 1 at unit’s place add 9 to make 31. In the answer, write 9 at unit’s place and carry over 3. Step 2 Add 2nd column: 3+7+6+8=24 To obtain 2 at tens place add 8 to make 32. In the answer, write 8 at ten’s place and carry over 3. Step 3 Add 3rd column: 3 + 8 + 9 + 6 = 26 To obtain 3 at hundred’s place, add 7 to make 33. In the answer, write 7 at hundred’s place and carry over 3. Step 4 Add 4th column: 3 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 27 To obtain 4 at thousand’s place add 7 to make 34. In the answer, write 7 at thousand’s place and over 3. Step 5 5th column: To obtain 5 at ten-thousand’s place add 2 to it to make 5. In the answer, write 2 at the ten-thousand’s place. ∴ 54321 – (9876 + 8967 + 7689) = 27789. Common Factor A common factor of two or more numbers is a number which divides each of them exactly. For example, 4 is a common factor of 8 and 12. Highest common factor Highest common factor of two or more numbers is the greatest number that divides each one of them exactly. For example, 6 is the highest common factor of 12, 18 and 24. Highest Common Factor is also called Greatest Common Divisor or Greatest Common Measure. Symbolically, these can be written as H.C.F. or G.C.D. or G.C.M., respectively. Methods of Finding H.C.F. I. Method of Prime Factors Step 1 Express each one of the given numbers as the product of prime factors. [A number is said to be a prime number if it is exactly divisible by 1 and itself but not by any other number, e.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, etc. are prime numbers] Step 2 Choose Common Factors. Step 3 Find the product of lowest powers of the common factors. This is the required H.C.F. of given numbers. Illustration 1 Find the H.C.F. of 70 and 90. Solution 70 = 2 × 5 × 7 90 = 2 × 5 × 9 Common factors are 2 and 5. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

∴ H.C.F. = 2 × 5 = 10.

Illustration 2 Find the H.C.F. of 3332, 3724 and 4508 Solution 3332 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 17 3724 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 19 4508 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 × 23 ∴ H.C.F. = 2 × 2 × 7 × 7 = 196. Illustration 3 Find the H.C.F. of 360 and 132. Solution 360 = 23 × 32 × 5 132 = 22 × 31 × 11 ∴ H.C.F. = 22 × 31 × = 12. Illustration 4 If x = 23 × 35 × 59 and y = 25 × 37 × 511, find H.C.F. of x and y. Solution The factors common to both x and y are 23, 35 and 59. ∴ H.C.F. = 23 × 35 × 59. II. Method of Division A. For two numbers: Step 1 Greater number is divided by the smaller one. Step 2 Divisor of (1) is divided by its remainder. Step 3 Divisor of (2) is divided by its remainder. This is continued until no remainder is left. H.C.F. is the divisor of last step. Illustration 5 Find the H.C.F. of 3556 and 3444. 3444 )3556 (1 3444 112 ) 3444 ( 30 3360 84 ) 112 ( 1 84 28 ) 84 ( 3 84 × B. For more than two numbers: Step 1 Any two numbers are chosen and their H.C.F. is obtained. Step 2 H.C.F. of H.C.F. (of(1)) and any other number is obtained. Step 3 H.C.F. of H.C.F. (of (2)) and any other number (not chosen earlier) is obtained. This process is continued until all numbers have been chosen. H.C.F. of last step is the required H.C.F. Illustration 6 Find the greatest possible length which can be used to measure exactly the lengths 7 m, 3 m 85 cm, 12 m 95 cm. Solution Required length = (H.C.F. of 700, 385, 1295) cm = 35 cm.

For Example, 32 is a common multiple of 8 and 16. 8 × 4 = 32 16 × 2 = 32. Least Common Multiple The least common multiple of two or more given numbers is the least or lowest number which is exactly divisible by each of them. For example, consider the two numbers 12 and 18. Multiples of 12 are 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, … Multiple of 18 are 18, 36, 54, 72, … Common multiples are 36, 72, … ∴ Least common multiple, i.e. L.C.M. of 12 and 18 is 36. Methods of Finding L.C.M. A. Method of Prime Factors Step 1 Resolve each given number into prime factors. Step 2 Take out all factors with highest powers that occur in given numbers. Step 3 Find the product of these factors. This product will be the L.C.M. Illustration 7 Find the L.C.M. of 32, 48, 60 and 320. Solution 32 = 25 × 1 48 = 24 × 3 60 = 22 × 3 × 5 320 = 26 × 6 ∴ L.C.M. = 26 × 3 × 5 = 960.

B. Method of Division Step 1 The given numbers are written in a line separated by common. Step 2 Divide by any one of the prime numbers 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, … which will divide at least any two of the given nu8mbers exactly. The quotients and the undivided numbers are written in a line below the first. Step 3 Step 2 is repeated until a line of numbers (prime to each other) appears. 1 Find the product of all divisors and numbers in the last line which is the required L.C.M. Illustration 8 Find the L.C.M. of 12, 15, 20 and 54. Solution2 12, 15, 20, 54 2 6, 15, 10, 27 3 3, 15, 5, 27 5 1, 5, 5, 9 1, 1, 1, 9 L.C.M. = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 1 × 1 × 1 × 9 = 540. Note: Before finding the L.C.M. or H.C.F., we must ensure that all quantities are expressed in the same unit. Some Useful Short-Cut Methods 1.

RATIOS, PROPORTIONS AND VARIATION A ratio is a comparison of two quantities by division. It is a relation that one quantity bears to another with respect to magnitude. In other words, ratio means what part one quantity is of another. The quantities may be of same kind or different kinds. For example, when we consider the ratio of the weight 45 kg of a bag of rice to the weight 29kg of a bag of sugar we are considering the quantities of same kind but when we talk of allotting 2 cricket bats to 5 sportsmen, we are considering quantities of different kinds. Normally, we consider the ratio between quantities of the same kind. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

If a and b are two numbers, the ratio of a to b is a/b or a +b and is denoted by a : b. The two quantities that are being compared are called terms. The first is called antecedent and the second term is called consequent. For example, the ratio 3 : 5 represents 3/5 with antecedent 3 and consequent 5. Note: 1. A ratio is a number, so to find the ratio of two quantities, they must be expressed in the same units. 2. A ratio does not change if both of is terms are multiplied or divided by the same number. Thus, 2/3= 4/6 = 6/9 etc. TYPES OF RATIOS

1.

Duplicate Ratio The ratio of the squares of two numbers is called the duplicate ratio of the two numbers. For example, 32/42 or 9/16 is called the duplicate ratio of ¾. 2. Triplicate Ratio The ratio of the cubes of two numbers is called the triplicate ratio of the two numbers. For example, 33/43 or 27/64 is triplicate ratio of ¾. 3. Sub-duplicate Ratio The ratio of the square roots of two numbers is called the sub-duplicate ratio of two numbers. For example, 3/4 is the sub- duplicate ratio of 9/16. 4. Sub-duplicate Ratio The ratio of the cube roots of two numbers is called the sub-triplicate ratio of two numbers. For example, 2/3 is the sub-triplicate ratio of 8/27. 5. Inverse Ratio or Reciprocal Ratio If the antecedent and consequent of a ratio interchange their places, the new ratio is called the inverse ratio of the first. Thus, if a : b be the given ratio, then 1/a : 1/b or b : a is its inverse ratio. For example, 3/5 is the inverse ratio of 5/3. 6. Compound Ratio The ratio of the product of the antecedents to that of the consequents of two or more given ratios is called the compound ratio. Thus, if a :b and c:d are two given rations, then ac : bd is the compound ratio of the given ratios, For example, if ¾, 4/5 and 5/7 be the given ratios, then their compound ratios is 3× 4× 5/ 4× 5× 7, that is, 3/7. PROPORTION The equality of two ratios is called proportion. If a/b = c/d, then a, b, c and d are said to be in proportion and we write a : b: : c: d. This is read as “a is to b as c is to d”. For example, since ¾ = 6/8, we write 3; 4: : 6: 8 and say 3, 4, 6 and 8 are in proportion. Each term of the ratio a/b and c/d is called a proportional. a, b, c, and d are respectively the first, second, third and fourth proportionals Here, a, d are known as extremes and b, c are known as means. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1. If four quantities are in proportion, then product of Means = product of Extremes For example, in the proportion a : b: : c: d, we have bc = ad. From this relation we see that if any three of the four quantities are given, the fourth can be determined. 2. Fourth proportional If a: b: :c :x, x is called the fourth proportional of a, b, c. We have, a/b = c/x or, x = b×c/a Thus, fourth proportional of a, b, c is b × c / a. Illustrational 1 Find a fourth proportional to the numbers 2, 5, 4. Solution Let x be the fourth proportional, then _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

2 : 5 : : 4 : x or 2/5 = 4/x. ∴ x = 5 × 4 /2 = 10. 3. Third proportional If a: b: : c: x, x is called the third proportional of a, b. We have, a/b= b/x or x= b2/a. Thus, third proportional of a. b is b2/a Illustration 2 Find a third proportional to the numbers 2.5, 1.5 Solution Let x be the third proportional, then 2.5 : 1.5 : :1.5 : x or 2.5/1.5= 1.5/x. ∴ x = 1.5 × 1.5/2.5 = 0.9 4. Mean Proportional If a: x: : x: b, x is called the mean or second proportional of a, b. We have, a/x =x/b or x2 = ab or x = √ab ∴ Mean proportional of a and b is √ab. We also say that a, x, b are in continued proportion Illustration 3 Find the mean proportional between 48 and 12. Solution Let x be the mean proportional. Then, 48 : x : : x : 12 or, 48/x = x/12 or, x2= 576 or, x=24. 5. If a/b = c/d, then (i) (a + b)/b = (c +d)/d (Componendo) (ii) (a – b)/b = (c-d)/d (Dividendo) (iii) (a + b)/a-b = c +d/c-d = (Componendo and Dividendo) (iv) a/b = a + c/b+d = (a –c)/b-d Illustration 4 The sum of two umber is c and their quotient is p/q. Find the numbers. Solution Let the numbers be x, y. Given: x + y = c …(1) and, x/y = p/q …(2) ∴ x/ x+y = p/p+q ⇒ x/c = p/p+q [Using (1)] ⇒ x = pc/p +q. SOME USEFUL SHORT-CUT METHODS 1. (a) If two numbers are in the ratio of a: b and the sum of these numbers is x, then these numbers will be ax/ a + b and bx/ a+b, respectively. or If in a mixture of x liters of, two liquids A and B in the ratio of a: b, then the quantities of liquids A and B in the mixture will be ax / a + b litres and bx/ a + b litres, respectively. (b) If three numbers are in the ratio a : b: c and the sum of these numbers is x, then these numbers will be ax / a + b + c , bx / a + b + c and cx / a + b + c, respectively. Explanation Len the three numbers in the ratio a: b: c be A, B and C. Then, A = ka, B = kb, C =kc and, A + B + C = ka + kb + kc = x ⇒ k(a+b+c) = x ⇒ k = x / a + b+ c. ∴ A = ka = ax / a + b+ c. B = kb = bx / a + b+ c. C = kc = cx / a + b+ c. Illustration 5 Two numbers are in the ratio of 4 : 5 and the sum of these numbers is 27. Find the two numbers. Solution Here, a = 4, b = 5, and x = 27. ∴ The first number = ax / a + b = 4 × 27 / 4+5 = 12. and, the second number = bx / a + b = 5 × 27 / 4+5 = 15. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

Illustration 6 Three numbers are in the ratio of 3: 4 : 8: and the sum of these numbers is 975. Find the three numbers. Solution Here, a = 3, b = 4, c = 8 and x = 975 ∴ The first number = ax / a + b+ c = (3 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 195. The second number = bx / a + b+ c = (4 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 260. and, the third number = cx / a + b+ c = (8 × 975)/ 3 + 4 + 8 = 520. 2. If two numbers are in the ratio of a : b and difference between these is x, then these numbers will be a) ax/ a-b and bx/ a-b, respectively (where a > b). b) ax/ a-b and bx/ a-b, respectively (where a < b). Explanation Let the two numbers be ak and bk. Let a > b. Given : ak – bk = x ⇒ (a – b)k = x or k = x / (a-b). Therefore, the two numbers are ax / a-b and bx/ a-b. Illustration 7 Two numbers are in the ratio of 4 : 5. If the difference between these numbers is 24, then find the numbers. Solution Here, a = 4, b = 5 and x = 24. ∴ The first number = ax/ b-a = 4 × 24/5- 4 = 96 and, the second number = bx/ b-a = 5× 24 / 5-4 = 120. 3. (a). If a : b = n1 : d1 and b : c = n2 : d2, then a : b : c = (n1× n2) : (d1× n2) : (d1 × d2). (b). If a : b = n1 : d1, b : c = n2 : d2, and c : d = n3 : d3 then a : b : c : d= (n1× n2× n3) : (d1× n2× n3 ) : (d1× d2× n3 ) : (d1× d2× d3 ). Illustration 8 If A : B = 3 : 4 and B : C = 8 : 9, find A : B : C. Solution Here, n1 = 3, n2 =8, d1 =4 and d2 = 9. ∴ a : b : c = (n1× n2) : (d1× n2) : (d1× d2) = (3× 8) : (4× 8) : (4× 9) = 24 : 32 : 36 or, 6: 8 : 9. Illustration 9 If A : B = 2 : 3, B:C = 4 : 5 and C : D = 6 : 7, find A :D. Solution Here, n1 = 2, n2 = 4, n3 = 6, d1 = 3, d2 = 5 and d3 = 7. ∴ A : B : C : D = (n1× n2× n3) : (d1× n2× n3) : (d1 × d2 × n3) : (d1 × d2 × d3) = (2 × 4 × 6) : (3 × 4 × 6) : (3 × 5 × 6) : (3 × 5 × 7) = 48 : 72 : 90: 105: or, 16: 24 : 30 ; 35. Thus, A : D = 16 : 35. 4. (a) The ratio between two numbers is a : b. If x is added to each of these numbers, the ratio becomes c : d. The two numbers are given as: ax(c – d) / ad – bc and bx(c- d) / ad –bc. Explanation Let two number be ak and bk. Given : ak +x / bk+x = c/d ⇒akd +dx= cbk + cx ⇒ k(ad –bc) = x(c –d) ⇒k =x(c-d)/ ad – bc. Therefore, the two numbers are ax(c-d) / ad-bc and bx(c-d) / ad- bc (b) The ratio between two numbers is a : b. if x is subtracted from each of these numbers, the ratio becomes c : d. _________________________________________________________________________________________ _

The two numbers are given as: ax(d-c) / ad-bc and bx(d-c) / ad- bc Explanation Let the two numbers be ak and bk. Given : ak-x/bk-x = c/d ⇒ akd-xd = bck-xc ⇒ k(ad-bc) = x(d-c) ⇒ k = x(d-c)/ad-bc. Therefore, the two numbers are ax(d-c)/ad-bc and bx(d-c)/ad-bc Illustration 10 Given two numbers which are in the ratio of 3 : 4, If 8 is added to each of them, their ratio is changed to 5 : 6. Find two numbers. Solution We have, a : b = 3 : 4, c : d = 5 : 6 and x = 8. ∴ The first number = ax(c – d)/ ad –bc = 3 × 8× (5-6) / (3× 6- 4 × 5) = 12. and, the second number = bx(c – d)/ ad –bc = 4 × 8× (5-6) / (3× 6- 4 × 5) = 16. Illustration 11 The ratio of two numbers is 5 : 9. If each number is decreased by 5, the ratio becomes 5: 11. Find the numbers. Solution We have, a : b = 5: 9, c: d = 5: 11 and x =5. ∴ The first number = ax (d – c)/ ad –bc = 5 × 5× (11-5)/ (5× 11- 9 × 5) = 15. and, the second number= bx(d-c)/ad-bc 9× 5× (11-5)/(5× 11-9× 5)= 27. 5. (a) If the ratio of two numbers is a: b, then the numbers that should be added to each of the numbers in order to make this ratio c : d is given by ad-bc/ c-d. Explanation Let the required number be x. Given: a+x/ b+x = c/d ⇒ ad+ xd = bc + xc ⇒ x(d-c) =bc –ad or, x =ad-bc/c-d. (b)If the ratio of two numbers is a : b, then the number that should be subtracted from each of the numbers in order to make this ratio c : d is given by bc-ad/c-d. Explanation Let the required number be x. Given: a-x/ b-x = c/d ⇒ ad- xd = bc - xc ⇒ x(c-d) =bc –ad or, x = bc-ad/c-d. Illustration 12 Find the number that must be subtracted from the terms of the ratio 5 : 6 to make it equal to 2 : 3. Solution We have a : b= 5 : 6 and c: d =2 : 3. ∴ The required number = bc-ad/ c-d = 6 × 2-5× 3/ 2-3 =3. Illustration 13 Find the number that must be added to the terms of the ratio 11 : 29 to make it equal to 11 : 20. Solution We have, a : b= 11 : 29 and c: d =11: 20. ∴ The required number = ad-bc/ c-d = 11 × 20-29× 11/ 11-20 = 11. EXERCISE

PERCENTAGES Introduction The term per cent means per hundreds or for every hundred. It is the abbreviation of the Latin phrase per centum. Scoring 60 per cent marks means out of every 100 marks the candidate scored 60 marks. The term per cent is sometimes abbreviated as p.c. The symbol % is often used for the term per cent. Thus, 40 per cent will be written as 40%. A fraction whose denominator is 100 is called a percentage and the numerator of the fraction is called rate per cent, e.g. 5/100 and 5 per cent means the same thing, i.e. 5 parts out of every hundred parts. 1. To Convert a fraction into a per cent: to convert any fraction l/m to rate per cent, multiply it by 100 and put % sign, i.e. l/m × 100% 2. To Convert a Percent into a Fraction: To convert a per cent into a fraction , drop the per cent sign and divide the number by 100. 3. To find a percentage of a given number: x % of given number (N) = x/100 × N. Some useful shortcut methods 1. (a) if A is x% more than that of B, then B is less than that of A by

x 100 + x ×100 % (b) If a is x% less than that of B, then B is more than that of A by

x 100 − x ×100 % 2. If a is x% of C and B is y% of C, then A = x/y × 100% of B. 3. (a) If two numbers are respectively x% and y% more than a third number, then the first number is

100 + x 100 + y ×100 % of the second and the second is ×100 % of the first. 100 + x 100 + y (b) If two numbers are respectively x% and y% less than a third number, then the first number is 100 − x ×100 % of the first. 100 − y

4. (a) If the price of a commodity increases by P%, then the reduction in consumption so as not to increase the

P ×100 % . 100 + P

expenditure is

(b) If the price of a commodity decreases by p%, then the increase in consumption so as not to decrease the

P ×100 % . 100 − P

expenditure is

5. If a number is changed (increased/decreased) successively by x% and y%, then net% change is given by (x+y+ (xy/100))% which represents increase or decrease in value according as the sign is +ve or –ve. If x or y indicates decrease in percentage, then put –ve sign before x or y, otherwise +ve sign. 6. If two parameters A and B are multiplied to get a product and if A is changed (increased/decreased) by x% and another parameter B is changed (increased/decreased) by y%, then the net% change in the product (A × B) is given (x+y+(xy/100))% which represents increase or decrease in value according as the sign in +ve or –ve. If x or y indicates decrease in percentage, then put –ve sign before x or y, otherwise +ve sign. 7. If the present population of a town (or value of an item) be P and the population (or value of item) changes at r% per annum, then n

(a) Population (or value of item) after n years = P1 +

r 100

P (b) Population (or value of item) n years ago =

r 1 + 100

n

where r is +ve or –ve according as the population (or value of item) increase or decreases. 8. If a number A is increased successively by x% followed by y% and then by z%, then the final value of A will be

x y z A1 + 1 + 1 + 100 100 100 In case a given value decreases by any percentage, we will use a negative sign before that. 9. In an examination, the minimum pass percentage is x%. If a student secures y marks and fails by z marks, then the maximum marks in the examination is

100 ( y + z ) . x

10. In an examination x% and y% students respectively fail in two different subjects while z% students fail in both the subjects, then the percentage of students who pass in both the subjects will be (100-(x+y-z))%. EXERCISE 1. What is 20% of 50% of 75% of 70? 1. 5.25 2. 6.75 3. 7.25

Averages & Mixtures Whenever we are asked the marks scored by us in any examination, we usually tell the marks in percentage, taking the percentage of total marks of all subjects. This percentage is called average percentage. Also, in a class, If there are 100 students, instead of knowing the age of individual student, we usually talk about average age. The average or mean or arithmetic of a number of quantities of the same kind is equal to their sum divided by the number of those quantities. For example, the average of 3, 11, 15, 18,19, and 23 is 3 + 9 +11+ 15+ 18+ 19+ 23+ /7 = 98/7 = 14. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1.

Average = sum of quantities/ Number of quantities

2. Sum of quantities = Average × Number of quantities 3.

Number of quantities = Sum of quantities/ Average

PROFIT AND LOSS Business transactions have now-a-days become common feature of life. When a person deals in the purchase and sale of any item, he either gains or loses some amount generally. The aim of any business is to earn profit. The commonly used terms in dealing with questions involving sale and purchase are: Cost Price The cost price of an article is the price at which an article has been purchased. It is the abbreviated as C.P. Selling Price The selling price of an article is the price at which an article has been sold. It is abbreviated as S.P. Profit or Gain If the selling price of an article is more that the cost price, there is a gain or profit. Thus, Profit or Gain = S.P- C.P. Loss If the cost price of an article is greater than the selling price, the suffers a loss. Thus, Loss = C.P- S.P. Note that profit and loss are always calculated with respect to the cost price of the item. Illustration 1. (i)If C.P. = Rs. 235, S.P. = Rs. 240, then profit = ? (ii) If C.P. = Rs. 116, S.P. = Rs. 107, then loss = ? Solution (i) Profit = S.P.- C.P. =Rs. 240- 235 =Rs.5. (ii) Loss = C.P.- S.P. = Rs. 116- 107 =Rs.9. SOME BASIC FORMULAE 1. Gain% = (Gain × 100)/C.P Loss on Rs. 100 is Loss per cent Loss% = (Loss × 100)/C.P

Gain on Rs. 100 is Gain per cent

Illustration 2 The cost price of a shirt is Rs. 200 and selling price is Rs. 250. Calculate the % profit. Solution We have, C.P. = Rs. 200, S.P = Rs. 250. Profit = S.P.- C.P. = 250- 200 =Rs.50. ∴ Profit% = profit× 100/ C.P = 50× 100/ 250 = 25% Illustration 3 Anu bought a necklace for Rs. 750 and sold it for Rs. 675. Find her percentage loss. Solution Here, C.P. = 750, S.P. = Rs. 675. Loss= C.P- S.P. = 750-675 = Rs. 75. ∴ Loss% = Loss × 100/ C.P = 75× 100/ 750 = 10% 2. C.P = 100× S.P / (100+Gain%)

When the selling price and gain% are given:

3. S.P = (100+Gain%)× C.P/ 100

When the cost and gain per cent are given;

4. S.P = (100-Loss%)× C.P / 100

When the cost and loss per cent are given:

5. C.P =(100)× S.P / (100-Loss%)

When the selling price and loss per cent are given:

Illustration 4 Mr. Sharma buys a cooler for Rs. 4500. For how much should he so that there is a gain of 8%? Solution We have, C.P. = Rs. 4500, gain% = 8% ∴ S.P = (100+Gain%/100)× C.P. = (100+ 8/ 100) × 4500 108/100 × 4500 = Rs. 4860 Illustration 5 By selling a fridge Rs. 7200, Pankaj loses 10%. Find the cost price of the fridge.

Solution We have, S.P. = Rs. 7200, loss% = 10%. ∴ C.P =(100/100-Loss%)× S.P. = (100/100-10) × 7200 100/90 × 7200= Rs. 8000. Illustration 6 By selling a pen for Rs. 99, Mohan gains 12 ½ %. Find the cost price of the pen. Solution Here, S.P. = Rs. 99, gain% = 12 ½% or 25/2%. ∴ C.P =(100/100+Gain%)× S.P. = (100/100+25/2) × 99 = (100× 2/ 225) × 99 =Rs. 88 SOME USEFUL SHORT-CUT METHODS 1. the gain or loss per cent made by him is (xw/zy -1) × 100%.

If a man buys x items for Rs. y and sells z items for Rs. w, then

Explanation S.P. of z items = Rs. w S.P. of x items = Rs. w/z x Net profit =w/z x-y. ∴ % profit = w/z x-y/y × 100% i.e.(xw/zy -1) × 100, which represent loss, if the result is negative. Note: In the case of gain per cent the result obtained bears positive sign whereas in the case of loss per cent the result obtained bears negative sign. How to remember: 1. Cross-multiply the numbers connected by the arrows (xw and zy) 2. Mark the directon of the arrows for crossmultiplicaton. The arrow going down forms the numerator while the arrow going up forms the denominator (xw/ zy). Illustration 7 If 11 oranges are bought for Rs. 10 and sold at 10 for Rs. 11 what is the gain loss%? Solution % profit= (xw/zy -1) × 100% = (11× 11/10× 10-1) × 100% = 21/100 × 100% = 21% Illustration 8 A fruit seller buys apples at the rate of Rs 12 per dozen and sells them at the rate of 15 for Rs.12. Find his percentage gain or loss. Solution % gain or loss = (xw/ zy -1) × 100% = (12× 12/15 × 12 -1) × 100% = -36/144 × 100% = -25% Since the sign is –ve, there is a loss of 25%. 2. n articles, then % gain or loss = ( m-n/n) × 100 [If m > n, it is gain and if m n, m, n ∈ N, and xm > xn if ______
