Maths Quest 7 for Victoria

Multiples A multiple of a number is the answer obtained when that number is multiplied by another whole number. All numbers in the 5 times table are multiples of 5, so 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, . . . are all multiples of 5. The number 5 has been multiplied by one other number to find each of the numbers in the 5 times table, so they are all multiples of 5.

Chapter 2 Multiples, factors and primes

47

Factors A factor is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. If one number is divisible by another number, the second number divides exactly into the first number. For example, 8 is divisible by 4 because 8 ÷ 4 = 2. The number 4 is a factor of 8 because 4 divides into 8 twice with no remainder, or 8 ÷ 4 = 2. The number 2 is also a factor of 8 because 8 ÷ 2 = 4. The number 3 is a factor of 15 because 3 goes into 15, or 15 ÷ 3 = 5.

WORKED Example 3 Find all the factors of 14. THINK 1

WRITE

1 is a factor of every number and the number itself is a factor; that is, 1 × 14 = 14. 14 is an even number so 14 is divisible by 2 and is a factor. Divide the number by 2 to find the other factor (14 ÷ 2 = 7). Write a sentence placing the factors in order from smallest to largest.

1, 14

2, 7

The factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7 and 14.

Factor pairs It is often easiest to write factors in pairs called factor pairs. These are pairs of numbers which multiply to equal a certain number.

WORKED Example 4 List the factor pairs of 30. THINK 1 2 3

4 5

1 and the number itself are factors; that is, 1 × 30 = 30. 30 is an even number so 2 and 15 are factors; that is, 2 × 15 = 30. Divide the next smallest number into 30. Therefore, 3 and 10 are factors; that is, 3 × 10 = 30. 30 ends in 0 so 5 divides evenly into 30, that is, 5 × 6 = 30. List the factor pairs.

WRITE 1, 30 2, 15 3, 10

32 × 25 = 8 × 4 × 25 = 8 × 100 = 800

With practice this could be done in your head. Some useful products are 2 × 50 = 100, 8 × 125 = 1000, 4 × 250 = 1000.

remember remember 1. A factor is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. 2. The factors of a number can be found using factor pairs. One of the pairs may be a single number which multiplies by itself. The number 5 is a factor of 25 because 5 × 5 = 25. The number itself and 1 are always factors of a number. 3. If 2 or more numbers have the same factor, it is called a common factor. 4. The highest common factor or HCF of 2 or more numbers is the largest factor which divides into all of the given numbers.

Prime numbers A prime number is a counting number which has exactly 2 factors, itself and 1. The number 3 is a prime number. Its only factors are 3 and 1. The number 7 is a prime number. Its only factors are 7 and 1. A composite number is one which has more than two factors. The number 10 is a composite number; its factors are 1, 10, 5 and 2. The number 16 is also a composite number; its factors are 1, 16, 2, 8 and 4. The number 1 is a special number. It is neither a prime number nor a composite number because it has only one factor, 1.

Maths Quest 7 for Victoria

History of mathematics E R ATOS T H E N E S O F C Y R E N E ( c 2 7 0 B C t o 1 9 0 B C ) During his life . . . The Roman Empire introduces a minted coin, the Denarius. Hannibal crosses the Alps. The Great Wall of China is built. Terracotta Soldiers are buried in a tomb at Xian (China). Eratosthenes was a Greek astronomer and mathematician. He was born in Cyrene (now Shahhat, Libya) in approximately 270 BC. Some sources suggest he was born in 270 BC and died in 194 BC. Eratosthenes was first educated by his father, Aglaos, and was then educated in Athens. He eventually became the main librarian at the Alexandrian museum. Eratosthenes was the first person to work out an accurate measurement of the circumference of the Earth (when many people believed the Earth was flat!). He did this by comparing the angle of the shadows of sticks at two distant locations, Alexandria and Athens, at the same time of the day.

Eratosthenes was one of the most famous mathematicians of his day and was asked by the ruler of Egypt, Ptolemy III, to tutor his son Ptolemy Philadelphus. He also took on the job of being the chief librarian at the University of Alexandra where other mathematicians, such as Euclid, had held this position. As chief librarian he was able to borrow and copy books from the library.

Because he worked on many types of research, some people thought that he was not a specialist in any area. However, all the work that he did was always of the highest standard. Eratosthenes made many discoveries in many areas that still benefit us now. He tried to improve the accuracy of calendars and realised there was a need for leap years to keep calendars in time with the seasons. He published the first map of the world based on longitude and latitude. He compiled a star catalogue containing 675 stars. Eratosthenes discovered a way of finding prime numbers, called the Sieve of Eratosthenes (see page 57). The largest known prime is 21 398 269 − 1 which has 420 921 digits, but new primes are now being discovered regularly with the help of computers. When Eratosthenes was old he became blind. He was so upset by this disability that he committed suicide.

Questions 1. What was Eratosthenes’s main job in life? 2. What physical property was he the first person to measure accurately? 3. What was different about Eratosthenes’s map of the world? 4. Which ruler did he work for? 5. What is the largest known prime at the time of this publication? 6. Why did Eratosthenes become depressed and commit suicide? Research 1. Look on the Internet for information about primes and find the largest prime number known at present and compare it with the one reported above. How much bigger is it now? 2. Why do we need leap years (they occur once every 4 years normally) and what is the difference between the years 1900 and 2000 in terms of leap years?

The sieve of Eratosthenes An easy way to find prime numbers is to use the ‘Sieve of Eratosthenes’. Eratosthenes discovered a simple method of sifting out all of the composite numbers so that only prime numbers are left. You can follow the steps below to find all prime numbers between 1 and 100. Alternatively you can use the Excel file provided on the Maths Quest CD-ROM to simulate this process. Sieve of Eratosthenes (a) Copy the numbers from 1 to 100 in a grid as shown below.

1 A whole number is ‘perfect’ if it equals the sum of all its proper factors. The proper factors of a number are all factors smaller than the number. So 6 is perfect since its proper factors are 1, 2 and 3 and 6 = 1 + 2 + 3. a Find all the proper factors of 28 and show that 28 is a perfect number. b Do the same for 496. 2 Find the 7 proper factors of the number 999. Is 999 a perfect number? 3 Use a calculator to find the 13 proper factors of 8128. Is 8128 a perfect number?

Index notation The product of factors can be written in a shorter form by using index notation or index form. A number in index form has two parts, the base and the index. The product of factors 3 × 3, can be written as 32. The 3 is the base and the 2 is the index. Two other examples are given below: 4 × 4 × 4 = 43 43 has a base of 4 and an index of 3. 5 2×2×2×2×2=2 25 is a number in which 2 is the base and 5 is the index. 5 2 is in index notation or index form. 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 is in expanded form. A composite number written as a product of prime factors can be written using index notation. So 50 = 2 × 5 × 5 = 2 × 52 and 56 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 = 23 × 7.

Maths Quest 7 for Victoria

Divisibility Often it can be difficult to find all the factors of a number, or to work out if a number is prime or composite. The following tests will help you.

Divisibility tests — 2, 3 and 4 A number is divisible by a second number if it can be divided by the second number without a remainder. For example, 20 is divisible by 10, because 20 can be divided by 10, without a remainder; that is, 20 ÷ 10 = 2. There is a way to test whether a number is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11.

Divisible by 2 The number 2 goes into all even numbers. A number is divisible by 2 if it is even. Even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Divisible by 3 All of the numbers in the 3 times table listed below are divisible by 3. 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39 . . . The sum of the digits in each number is 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 12 . . . Each of these sums is also divisible by 3. If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 3, then that number is also divisible by 3.

WORKED Example 15 State whether each of the following numbers is divisible by 3. a 45 b 92 c 66 d 5742 e 1 233 693 THINK To be divisible by 3 the sum of the digits must be divisible by 3. a For 45, the sum of digits is 4 + 5 = 9. Sum is divisible by 3.

WRITE

a 45 is divisible by 3.

b For 92, the sum of digits is 9 + 2 = 11. Sum is not divisible by 3.

b 92 is not divisible by 3.

c For 66, the sum of digits is 6 + 6 = 12. Sum is divisible by 3.

c 66 is divisible by 3.

d For 5742, the sum of digits is 5 + 7 + 4 + 2 = 18. Sum is divisible by 3.

d 5742 is divisible by 3.

e For 1 233 693, the sum of digits is 1 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 6 + 9 + 3 = 27. Sum is divisible by 3 (because 2 + 7 = 9 which is divisible by 3).

e 1 233 693 is divisible by 3.

Chapter 2 Multiples, factors and primes

65

Divisible by 4 If the last two digits of a number are divisible by 4, then the number is divisible by 4. The number 2032 is divisible by 4 because the last 2 digits, 32, are divisible by 4 (32 ÷ 4 = 8).

WORKED Example 16 State whether each of the following numbers is divisible by 4. a 48 b 3012 c 150 THINK

WRITE

Consider the last 2 digits and check whether this number is divisible by 4. a Last two digits are 48 which is divisible by 4 (48 ÷ 4 = 12).

a 48 is divisible by 4.

b Last two digits are 12 which is divisible by 4 (12 ÷ 4 = 3).

b 3012 is divisible by 4.

c Last two digits are 50 which is not divisible by 4 (50 ÷ 4 = 12.5).

c 150 is not divisible by 4.

remember remember 1. Even numbers are divisible by 2. 2. If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 3, then that number is also divisible by 3. 3. If the last 2 digits of a number are divisible by 4, then the number is divisible by 4.

Divisible by 10 The 10 times table shows all of the numbers 10 ‘goes into’. 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, . . . All of these numbers end in 0. Numbers ending in zero are divisible by 10. Divisible by 11 Divisibility by 11 is more complicated. To test whether a number is divisible by 11, the position of each digit must be considered as shown. For the number 6542, the 6 is in an odd position because it is in position 1 (1 is odd). The number 5 is in an even position because it is in position 2 (2 is even). The number 4 is in an odd position because it is in position 3 (3 is odd). The number 2 is in an even position because it is in position 4 (4 is even). Number 6 5 4 2 ↕ ↕ ↕ ↕ Position 1 2 3 4 If the sum of the odd-positioned digits equals the sum of the even-positioned digits or differs from the sum of the even-positioned digits by 11, then the number is divisible by 11. For example, 55 is divisible by 11 because 5 = 5. 6542 is not divisible by 11 because 6 + 4 ≠ 5 + 2 1364 is divisible by 11 because 1 + 6 = 3 + 4. 24 968 is not divisible by 11 because 2 + 9 + 8 ≠ 4 + 6. 913 is divisible by 11 because 9 + 3 ≠ 1 but the two sums differ by 11.

Testing whether numbers are prime or composite You will need a calculator for this activity. Eratosthenes devised a way of testing whether numbers were prime or composite. He tested all the primes smaller than the square root of the number. If any of the primes divide evenly into the number then the number is composite. If none of the primes divide evenly into the number then it is prime. Let’s try this method with the number 1973. First find the square root of 1973 using a calculator, 1973 = 44.418 . . . The prime numbers less than 44 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37 and 41. Test each prime to see whether the number 1973 is divisible by that prime. None of the primes up to 44 divide evenly into 1973. So 1973 is a prime number. Try this method with the following numbers. Classify each as prime or composite: 1. 1001 2. 3133 3. 8191.

A prime number is born! You can form a number which is prime by following some steps involving squaring a number. Start with a whole number. Add this number to the square of the number then add 41. For example, if the number chosen is 1, then we obtain 12 + 1 + 41 = 43 which is a prime number. 1. What is the prime number formed when the number you start with is: (a) 2 (b) 3 (c) 4 (d) 5 (e) 11 (f) 34 2. Can you find a prime number, which is less than 50, as your starting number which does not give a prime number answer when you follow this process? You may like to check your answers by using the prepared Excel spreadsheet on the Maths Quest CD-ROM. Use this spreadsheet to answer the following questions. 3. What is the prime number formed when the number you start with is: (a) 85 (b) 123 (c) 237 4. Find the starting number which produces the largest prime number under 10 000 using this method.

Copy the sentences below. Fill in the gaps by choosing the correct word or expression from the word list below. A is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. Factors that are the same for 2 or more numbers are called . The largest of these is known as the (HCF). A is obtained by multiplying a number by another number. If two or more numbers have the same multiple, they are called common multiples. The smallest of these is known as the (LCM). A has two factors only, itself and 1. A has more than 2 factors. The number is neither a prime number nor a composite number. Composite numbers can be written as the product of factors. The product of factors can be written in a shorter form by using notation or index form. A number in index form can be written using notation. Numbers with 2 equal factors are called numbers. Taking the square root of a number is the opposite of a number. Tests of divisibility: A number is divisible by: 2 if it ends in an number. 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by . 4 if the last digits are divisible by 4. 5 if it ends in 0 or . 6 if it is divisible by and 3. 8 if the last three digits are divisible by . 9 if the of the digits is divisible by 9. 10 if it ends in . 11 if the sum of the even-positioned digits equals the sum of the -positioned digits or the two sums differ by 11.

Chapter 2 Multiples, factors and primes

Factors A factor is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. If one number is divisible by another number, the second number divides exactly into the first number. For example, 8 is divisible by 4 because 8 ÷ 4 = 2. The number 4 is a factor of 8 because 4 divides into 8 twice with no remainder, or 8 ÷ 4 = 2. The number 2 is also a factor of 8 because 8 ÷ 2 = 4. The number 3 is a factor of 15 because 3 goes into 15, or 15 ÷ 3 = 5.

WORKED Example 3 Find all the factors of 14. THINK 1

WRITE

1 is a factor of every number and the number itself is a factor; that is, 1 × 14 = 14. 14 is an even number so 14 is divisible by 2 and is a factor. Divide the number by 2 to find the other factor (14 ÷ 2 = 7). Write a sentence placing the factors in order from smallest to largest.

1, 14

2, 7

The factors of 14 are 1, 2, 7 and 14.

Factor pairs It is often easiest to write factors in pairs called factor pairs. These are pairs of numbers which multiply to equal a certain number.

WORKED Example 4 List the factor pairs of 30. THINK 1 2 3

4 5

1 and the number itself are factors; that is, 1 × 30 = 30. 30 is an even number so 2 and 15 are factors; that is, 2 × 15 = 30. Divide the next smallest number into 30. Therefore, 3 and 10 are factors; that is, 3 × 10 = 30. 30 ends in 0 so 5 divides evenly into 30, that is, 5 × 6 = 30. List the factor pairs.

remember remember 1. A factor is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. 2. The factors of a number can be found using factor pairs. One of the pairs may be a single number which multiplies by itself. The number 5 is a factor of 25 because 5 × 5 = 25. The number itself and 1 are always factors of a number. 3. If 2 or more numbers have the same factor, it is called a common factor. 4. The highest common factor or HCF of 2 or more numbers is the largest factor which divides into all of the given numbers.

History of mathematics E R ATOS T H E N E S O F C Y R E N E ( c 2 7 0 B C t o 1 9 0 B C ) During his life . . . The Roman Empire introduces a minted coin, the Denarius. Hannibal crosses the Alps. The Great Wall of China is built. Terracotta Soldiers are buried in a tomb at Xian (China). Eratosthenes was a Greek astronomer and mathematician. He was born in Cyrene (now Shahhat, Libya) in approximately 270 BC. Some sources suggest he was born in 270 BC and died in 194 BC. Eratosthenes was first educated by his father, Aglaos, and was then educated in Athens. He eventually became the main librarian at the Alexandrian museum. Eratosthenes was the first person to work out an accurate measurement of the circumference of the Earth (when many people believed the Earth was flat!). He did this by comparing the angle of the shadows of sticks at two distant locations, Alexandria and Athens, at the same time of the day.

Eratosthenes was one of the most famous mathematicians of his day and was asked by the ruler of Egypt, Ptolemy III, to tutor his son Ptolemy Philadelphus. He also took on the job of being the chief librarian at the University of Alexandra where other mathematicians, such as Euclid, had held this position. As chief librarian he was able to borrow and copy books from the library.

Because he worked on many types of research, some people thought that he was not a specialist in any area. However, all the work that he did was always of the highest standard. Eratosthenes made many discoveries in many areas that still benefit us now. He tried to improve the accuracy of calendars and realised there was a need for leap years to keep calendars in time with the seasons. He published the first map of the world based on longitude and latitude. He compiled a star catalogue containing 675 stars. Eratosthenes discovered a way of finding prime numbers, called the Sieve of Eratosthenes (see page 57). The largest known prime is 21 398 269 − 1 which has 420 921 digits, but new primes are now being discovered regularly with the help of computers. When Eratosthenes was old he became blind. He was so upset by this disability that he committed suicide.

Questions 1. What was Eratosthenes’s main job in life? 2. What physical property was he the first person to measure accurately? 3. What was different about Eratosthenes’s map of the world? 4. Which ruler did he work for? 5. What is the largest known prime at the time of this publication? 6. Why did Eratosthenes become depressed and commit suicide? Research 1. Look on the Internet for information about primes and find the largest prime number known at present and compare it with the one reported above. How much bigger is it now? 2. Why do we need leap years (they occur once every 4 years normally) and what is the difference between the years 1900 and 2000 in terms of leap years?

The sieve of Eratosthenes An easy way to find prime numbers is to use the ‘Sieve of Eratosthenes’. Eratosthenes discovered a simple method of sifting out all of the composite numbers so that only prime numbers are left. You can follow the steps below to find all prime numbers between 1 and 100. Alternatively you can use the Excel file provided on the Maths Quest CD-ROM to simulate this process. Sieve of Eratosthenes (a) Copy the numbers from 1 to 100 in a grid as shown below.

1 A whole number is ‘perfect’ if it equals the sum of all its proper factors. The proper factors of a number are all factors smaller than the number. So 6 is perfect since its proper factors are 1, 2 and 3 and 6 = 1 + 2 + 3. a Find all the proper factors of 28 and show that 28 is a perfect number. b Do the same for 496. 2 Find the 7 proper factors of the number 999. Is 999 a perfect number? 3 Use a calculator to find the 13 proper factors of 8128. Is 8128 a perfect number?

Index notation The product of factors can be written in a shorter form by using index notation or index form. A number in index form has two parts, the base and the index. The product of factors 3 × 3, can be written as 32. The 3 is the base and the 2 is the index. Two other examples are given below: 4 × 4 × 4 = 43 43 has a base of 4 and an index of 3. 5 2×2×2×2×2=2 25 is a number in which 2 is the base and 5 is the index. 5 2 is in index notation or index form. 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 is in expanded form. A composite number written as a product of prime factors can be written using index notation. So 50 = 2 × 5 × 5 = 2 × 52 and 56 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 = 23 × 7.

Maths Quest 7 for Victoria

Divisibility Often it can be difficult to find all the factors of a number, or to work out if a number is prime or composite. The following tests will help you.

Divisibility tests — 2, 3 and 4 A number is divisible by a second number if it can be divided by the second number without a remainder. For example, 20 is divisible by 10, because 20 can be divided by 10, without a remainder; that is, 20 ÷ 10 = 2. There is a way to test whether a number is divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11.

Divisible by 2 The number 2 goes into all even numbers. A number is divisible by 2 if it is even. Even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. Divisible by 3 All of the numbers in the 3 times table listed below are divisible by 3. 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39 . . . The sum of the digits in each number is 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 3, 6, 9, 12 . . . Each of these sums is also divisible by 3. If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 3, then that number is also divisible by 3.

WORKED Example 15 State whether each of the following numbers is divisible by 3. a 45 b 92 c 66 d 5742 e 1 233 693 THINK To be divisible by 3 the sum of the digits must be divisible by 3. a For 45, the sum of digits is 4 + 5 = 9. Sum is divisible by 3.

b For 92, the sum of digits is 9 + 2 = 11. Sum is not divisible by 3.

b 92 is not divisible by 3.

c For 66, the sum of digits is 6 + 6 = 12. Sum is divisible by 3.

c 66 is divisible by 3.

d For 5742, the sum of digits is 5 + 7 + 4 + 2 = 18. Sum is divisible by 3.

d 5742 is divisible by 3.

e For 1 233 693, the sum of digits is 1 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 6 + 9 + 3 = 27. Sum is divisible by 3 (because 2 + 7 = 9 which is divisible by 3).

e 1 233 693 is divisible by 3.

Chapter 2 Multiples, factors and primes

65

Divisible by 4 If the last two digits of a number are divisible by 4, then the number is divisible by 4. The number 2032 is divisible by 4 because the last 2 digits, 32, are divisible by 4 (32 ÷ 4 = 8).

WORKED Example 16 State whether each of the following numbers is divisible by 4. a 48 b 3012 c 150 THINK

WRITE

Consider the last 2 digits and check whether this number is divisible by 4. a Last two digits are 48 which is divisible by 4 (48 ÷ 4 = 12).

a 48 is divisible by 4.

b Last two digits are 12 which is divisible by 4 (12 ÷ 4 = 3).

b 3012 is divisible by 4.

c Last two digits are 50 which is not divisible by 4 (50 ÷ 4 = 12.5).

c 150 is not divisible by 4.

remember remember 1. Even numbers are divisible by 2. 2. If the sum of the digits of a number is divisible by 3, then that number is also divisible by 3. 3. If the last 2 digits of a number are divisible by 4, then the number is divisible by 4.

To test whether a number is divisible by 7, drop the last digit, and subtract twice the dropped digit from the others. Repeat this process until there are only 2 digits left and see if that number is divisible by 7. 4. If the last 3 digits are divisible by 8 then the number is divisible by 8.

Divisible by 10 The 10 times table shows all of the numbers 10 ‘goes into’. 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, . . . All of these numbers end in 0. Numbers ending in zero are divisible by 10. Divisible by 11 Divisibility by 11 is more complicated. To test whether a number is divisible by 11, the position of each digit must be considered as shown. For the number 6542, the 6 is in an odd position because it is in position 1 (1 is odd). The number 5 is in an even position because it is in position 2 (2 is even). The number 4 is in an odd position because it is in position 3 (3 is odd). The number 2 is in an even position because it is in position 4 (4 is even). Number 6 5 4 2 ↕ ↕ ↕ ↕ Position 1 2 3 4 If the sum of the odd-positioned digits equals the sum of the even-positioned digits or differs from the sum of the even-positioned digits by 11, then the number is divisible by 11. For example, 55 is divisible by 11 because 5 = 5. 6542 is not divisible by 11 because 6 + 4 ≠ 5 + 2 1364 is divisible by 11 because 1 + 6 = 3 + 4. 24 968 is not divisible by 11 because 2 + 9 + 8 ≠ 4 + 6. 913 is divisible by 11 because 9 + 3 ≠ 1 but the two sums differ by 11.

Testing whether numbers are prime or composite You will need a calculator for this activity. Eratosthenes devised a way of testing whether numbers were prime or composite. He tested all the primes smaller than the square root of the number. If any of the primes divide evenly into the number then the number is composite. If none of the primes divide evenly into the number then it is prime. Let’s try this method with the number 1973. First find the square root of 1973 using a calculator, 1973 = 44.418 . . . The prime numbers less than 44 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37 and 41. Test each prime to see whether the number 1973 is divisible by that prime. None of the primes up to 44 divide evenly into 1973. So 1973 is a prime number. Try this method with the following numbers. Classify each as prime or composite: 1. 1001 2. 3133 3. 8191.

A prime number is born! You can form a number which is prime by following some steps involving squaring a number. Start with a whole number. Add this number to the square of the number then add 41. For example, if the number chosen is 1, then we obtain 12 + 1 + 41 = 43 which is a prime number. 1. What is the prime number formed when the number you start with is: (a) 2 (b) 3 (c) 4 (d) 5 (e) 11 (f) 34 2. Can you find a prime number, which is less than 50, as your starting number which does not give a prime number answer when you follow this process? You may like to check your answers by using the prepared Excel spreadsheet on the Maths Quest CD-ROM. Use this spreadsheet to answer the following questions. 3. What is the prime number formed when the number you start with is: (a) 85 (b) 123 (c) 237 4. Find the starting number which produces the largest prime number under 10 000 using this method.

Copy the sentences below. Fill in the gaps by choosing the correct word or expression from the word list below. A is a whole number that divides exactly into another whole number, with no remainder. Factors that are the same for 2 or more numbers are called . The largest of these is known as the (HCF). A is obtained by multiplying a number by another number. If two or more numbers have the same multiple, they are called common multiples. The smallest of these is known as the (LCM). A has two factors only, itself and 1. A has more than 2 factors. The number is neither a prime number nor a composite number. Composite numbers can be written as the product of factors. The product of factors can be written in a shorter form by using notation or index form. A number in index form can be written using notation. Numbers with 2 equal factors are called numbers. Taking the square root of a number is the opposite of a number. Tests of divisibility: A number is divisible by: 2 if it ends in an number. 3 if the sum of its digits is divisible by . 4 if the last digits are divisible by 4. 5 if it ends in 0 or . 6 if it is divisible by and 3. 8 if the last three digits are divisible by . 9 if the of the digits is divisible by 9. 10 if it ends in . 11 if the sum of the even-positioned digits equals the sum of the -positioned digits or the two sums differ by 11.
