## 4 - Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Solutions

12. We can obtain an equivalent fraction to a given one by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator of the given fraction by the same number.
a)
Given $\displaystyle \frac{10}{15} = \frac{?}{3}$
To go from a denominator equal to $15$ in the fraction on the left to a denominator equal to $3$ in the fraction on the right, we divide by $5$. Hence
$\displaystyle \frac{10}{15} = \frac{10 \color{red}{\div 5}}{15 \color{red}{\div 5}} = \frac{2}{3}$

b)
Given $\displaystyle \frac{17}{3} = \frac{34}{?}$
To go from a numerator equal to $17$ in the fraction on the left to a numerator equal to $34$ in the fraction on the right, we multiply by $2$. Hence
$\displaystyle \frac{17}{3} = \frac{17 \color{red}{\times 2} }{3 \color{red}{\times 2} } = \frac{34}{6}$

c)
Given $\displaystyle \frac{11}{2} = \frac{?}{8}$
To go from a denominator equal to $2$ in the fraction on the left to a denominator equal to $8$ in the fraction on the right, we multiply by $4$. Hence
$\displaystyle \frac{11}{2} = \frac{11 \color{red}{\times 4}}{2 \color{red}{\times 4}} = \frac{44}{8}$

13. a)
Convert the fraction $\displaystyle \frac{2}{5}$ to an equivalent fraction with denominator equal to $10$
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} = \frac{2 \times 2}{5 \times 2} = \frac{4}{10}$
Substitute the fraction $\displaystyle \frac{2}{5}$ by its equivalent in the given expression
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} + \frac{3}{10} - \frac{1}{10} = \frac{4}{10} + \frac{3}{10} - \frac{1}{10}$
The fractions in the sum/difference have the same denominator and we therefore add/subtract tham as follows
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} + \frac{3}{10} - \frac{1}{10} \\ = \displaystyle \frac{4}{10} + \frac{3}{10} - \frac{1}{10} = \frac{4+3-1}{10} = \frac{6}{10}$
Reduce the fraction by dividing numerator and denominator by $2$ and hence
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} + \frac{3}{10} - \frac{1}{10} = \frac{3}{5}$

b)
$\displaystyle \frac{5}{9} \times \frac{3}{4} = \frac {5 \times 3}{9 \times 4} = \frac{15}{36}$
Divide numerator and denominator by the GCF of $15$ and $36$ which is $3$
$\displaystyle = \frac{15 \div 3}{36 \div 3} = \frac{5}{12}$

c)
To divide a fraction by another we multiply the first by the inverse of the second. Hence
$\displaystyle \frac{11}{2} \div \frac{1}{8} = \frac{11}{2} \times \frac{8}{1} = \frac{88}{2} = 44$

d)
$\displaystyle 4 \frac{3}{4} - 1 \frac{1}{2} = (4 - 1) + (\frac{3}{4} - \frac{1}{2})$
Convert $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2}$ to an equivalent fraction with denominator equal to $4$ and substitute
$\displaystyle = 3 + (\frac{3}{4} - \frac{2}{4}) = 3 \frac{1}{4}$

e)
Convert the mixed number $\displaystyle 6 \frac{3}{4}$ to a fraction
$\displaystyle 6 \frac{3}{4} = 6 + \frac{3}{4} = \frac{24}{4} + \frac{3}{4} = \frac{27}{4}$
The division is done by mutliplying by the inverse of $2$. Hence
$\displaystyle \frac{27}{4} \times \frac{1}{2} = \frac{27}{8}$
Convert to a mixed number
$\displaystyle \frac{27}{8} = \frac{24+3}{8} = 3 \frac{3}{8}$

f)
Write $3$ as fraction.
$\displaystyle 3 = \frac{3}{1}$
The division becomes a multiplication by the inverse of $\displaystyle \frac{3}{5}$. Hence
$\displaystyle 3 \div \frac{3}{5} = \frac{3}{1} \times \frac{5}{3} = 5$

g)
Convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions
$\displaystyle 2 \frac{3}{5} = 2 + \frac{3}{5} = \frac{2}{1} + \frac{3}{5} = \frac{2 \times 5}{1 \times 5} + \frac{3}{5} = \frac{13}{5}$
$\displaystyle 3 \frac{3}{5} = 3 + \frac{3}{5} = \frac{3 \times 5}{1 \times 5} + \frac{3}{5} = \frac{18}{5}$
Substitute the mixed numbers by the equivalent fractions found above
$\displaystyle 2 \frac{3}{5} \div 3 \frac{3}{5} = \frac{13}{5} \div \frac{18}{5}$
A division of fractions becomes a multiplication by the inverse.
$\displaystyle 2 \frac{3}{5} \div 3 \frac{3}{5} = \frac{13}{5} \times \frac{5}{18} = \frac{13}{18}$

14. a)
The number has the digit $2$ in the tenth. Hence
$0.2 = \displaystyle \frac {2}{10}$
Reduce the fractions
$= \displaystyle \frac {1}{5}$

b)
The number has $1$ in the units, $2$ in the tenths and $4$ in the hundredths. Hence
$\displaystyle 1.24 = 1 + \frac{2}{10} + \frac{4}{100} = 1 + \frac{2 \times 10}{10 \times 10} + \frac{4}{100} = 1 \frac{24}{100}$
Reduce the fraction
$\displaystyle = 1 \frac{6}{25}$

c)
$\displaystyle 2.326 = 2 + \frac{3}{10} + \frac{2}{100} + \frac{6}{1000} = 2 \frac{163}{500}$

15. Use rules of division by $10$, $100$, $1000$, $10000$, ...
a)
$\displaystyle \frac{9}{100} = 0.09$
b)
$\displaystyle \frac{17}{10000} = 0.0017$
c)
$\displaystyle 3 \frac{11}{100000} = 0.00011$

16. a)
Convert the fractions to the same denominator
$\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} = \frac{8}{20}$
$\displaystyle \frac{3}{4} = \frac {15}{20}$
Hence the statement $\displaystyle \frac{2}{5} \lt \frac{3}{4}$ is true

b)
Convert the fractions to the same denominator
$\displaystyle \frac{1}{3} = \frac{10}{30}$
$\displaystyle \frac{3}{10} = \frac {9}{30}$
Hence the statement $\displaystyle \frac{1}{3} \lt \frac{3}{10}$ is NOT true

## 5 - Exponents

Solutions

17. a)
$3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 3^4$
b)
$7 \times 4 \times 4 \times 4 \times 5 \times 5 = 7 \times (4 \times 4 \times 4 \times) \times (5 \times 5) = 7 \times 4^3 \times 5^2$

18. a)
$2^4 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 = 16$
b)
$3^2 \times 4^2 = (3 \times 3) \times (4 \times 4) = 9 \times 16 = 144$
c)
Note that $10^0 = 1$, hence
$10^0 \times 4^2 = 1 \times 4 \times 4 = 16$

## 7 - Proportionality and Related Problems

Solutions

23. Distance id proportional to time as follows:
Distance = speed × time , the speed (or rate) is constant
speed = $\displaystyle \frac{240 \; \text{km}}{3 \; \text{hrs}} = 80 \; km/hrs$
$400 \; km$ = speed × time
time = $\displaystyle \frac{400 km}{80 \; km/hrs } = 5 \; \text{hrs}$

24. Let $x$ the amount in dollars needed to buy 320 Dirhams.
rate of change: $4 \; \text{Dhs/\}$ and is constant
$320 \; \text{Dhs} = x \times \; 4 \; \text{Dhs/\}$
$x = \displaystyle \frac{320 \; \text{Dhs} }{4 \; \text{Dhs/\}} = 80 \; \text{\}$

25. a)
Distance = $k \times$ time
From the graph at time = $2$ hrs the distance d = $8$ km
Hence
$8 = k \times 2$
Calculate $k$
$k = 8/2 = 4$
for time = 2.5 hrs;
d = $4 × 2.5 = 10$ km
b)
It is the constant $k = 4$ km/hrs
c)
Using Distance = $k \times$ time, we write
$32 = 4 \times$ time
time needed to cover $32$ km is given by $32 / 4 = 8$ hrs, 26. For $y$ to be proportional to $x$, we need to have the relationship $y = k x$ where $k$ must be constant
The above relationship may also be written as $\frac{y}{x} = k$ Below is shown the same tables completed by the ratio $y \div x$ on the right
The ratios $y \div x$ in the tables A) and C) are NOT constant (see red circle).
However the ratios $y \div x$ in the tables B) and D) are constant and equal to $2$ and $3$ respectively.
Hence $y$ is proportional to $x$ in tables B) and D) but not A) and C) ## 8 - Percent and Related Problems

Solutions

28. $50\%$ of $\displaystyle \frac{1}{4} = \frac{50}{100} \times \frac{1}{4} = \frac{50}{400} = \frac{1}{8}$

29. A percent is a fraction with denominator equal to 100. Hence to go from denominator equal to $5$ to a denominator equal to $100$, we multiply by $20$.
$\displaystyle \frac {3}{5} = \frac {3 \times 20}{5 \times 20} = \frac{60}{100} = 60\%$

30. Percent of her monthly salary spent on clothes = $\displaystyle \frac {600}{3000} = \frac {600 \div 30}{3000 \div 30 } = \frac{20}{100} = 20\%$

31. Change in percent = $\displaystyle \frac{100 - 120}{100} = \frac{-20}{100} = - 20 \%$

32. Let $x$ be the number such that $10\%$ of $x = 3$
$10\%$ of $x = \displaystyle \frac {10}{100}\times x = \frac{10 x}{100}$
Hence the equation
$\displaystyle \frac{10 x}{100} = 3$
Multiply both sides of the equation by $100$
$\displaystyle \frac{10 x}{100} \times 100= 3 \times 100$
Simplify
$10 x = 300$
Solve for $x$
$x = 30$

33. After 20% increase the price becomes
$40 + 20\% \times 40 = \48$

We are given the measures of two angles; let $x$ be the measure of the third angle and the sum of the three angles of a triangle is equal to $180^{\circ}$, hence $36^{^{\circ}} + 54^{^{\circ}} + x = 180^{\circ}$ Simplify the left side $90^{^{\circ}} + x = 180^{\circ}$ Solve for $x$ to obtain $x = 90^{^{\circ}}$ Hence the given triangle is a right triangle and b) is true.

48. Angle $\angle AOC$ is a straight angle and therefore angles $\angle AOB$ are $\angle COB$ are supplementary angles and their sum is equal to $180^{\circ}$. Hence
$\angle AOB + 27^{\circ} = 180^{\circ}$
Solve for $\angle AOB$ to obtain
$\angle AOB = 153^{\circ}$ 49. List of the pairs of vertical angles in the figure below are:

51. An equilateral triangle has 3 lines of symmetry as shown below. ## 15 - Perimeter and Area of Planar Figures

Solutions

52. $\text{radius} = \displaystyle \frac{\text{diameter}}{ 2} = \frac{20 \; cm}{2} = 10 \; cm$
$\text{Area} = 3.14 \times \text{radius} \times \text{radius} = 3.14 \times 10 \times 10 = 314 \; cm^2$

53. Perimeter of rectangle = $2 \times length + 2 \times width$
Substitute the length and the width by the given values Perimeter = $2 \times 10 + 2 \times 8 = 36 \text{ inches}$

54. Area of triangle = $\frac{1}{2} \times height \times base$
Substitute the height and the base by the given values
Area of triangle = $\frac{1}{2} \times 10 \times 5 = 25 \; cm^2$

55. To find the shaded area, subtract the area of semicircle from the area of the main rectangle.
Shaded Area = area of rectangle - area of semicircle
$\text{The radius of semicircle = diameter} / 2 = 50/2 = 25 \; cm$
Area of rectangle $= length \times width = 100 \times 50 = 5000 cm^2$
Area of semicircle $= \frac{1}{2} \times 3.14 \times radius \times radius = \frac{1}{2} \times 3.14 \times 25 \times 25 = 981.25 \; cm^2$
Shaded Area $= 5000 \; cm^2 - 981.25 \; cm^2 = 4018.75 \; cm^2$ ## 16 - Data and Interpretation of Graphs

Solutions

56. a) Saturday
b) Thursday
c) Total number of hours spent on homework $= 3 + 3 + 2 + 4 + 3 + 1 = 16 \; hours$ 57. a) Number of students in this class is obtained by adding the number of students (in vertical axis) corresponding to each range. Number of students in this class $= 2 + 3 + 4 + 6 + 7 + 3 = 25$
b)
From 70 to 89, we have two ranges: 70 to 79 with 6 students and 80 to 89 with 7 students.
Hence $6 + 7 = 13$ students scored between 70 and 89 inclusive.
c)
The number of students who failed are the ranges 40 to 49 and 50 to 59 and the number of students in each range are 2 and 3 respectively. Hence
The number of students who failed $= 2 + 3 = 5$
The percent of the total number of students failed the test $= \frac{5}{25} = 20\%$ ## 17 - Statistics

Solutions

58. mean $= \displaystyle \frac{9 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 9}{9} = 4$
Arrange the given data from least to greatest values
$\{ 1, 2, 2, 3, \color{red}3, 3, 4, 9, 9 \}$
The data value $3$ has the highest number of occurrences and is therefore the mode
There are 9 data values and the data value $3$ (red) is in the middle and is therefore the median

59. Let $x$ be the score of Joel's fourth quiz. The mean is given as 90, hence
mean $= \displaystyle \frac{78+95+92+x}{4} = 90$
Simplify and write as an equation
$\displaystyle \frac{265+x}{4} = 90$
Multilply both sides of the equation by $4$
$\displaystyle \frac{265+x}{4} \times 4 = 90 \times 4$
Simplify
$265 + x = 360$
Hence
$x = 360 - 265 = 95$
Joel should score 95 on her fourth quiz so that the average of the 4 quizzes is 90.

## 19 - Probabilities

Solutions

62. A measure of a probability takes values between 0 and 1 inclusive. Hence   b) -0.5   and   c) 2 cannot be measures of probabilities

63. Flip a coin has 2 outcomes : head and tail
Selecting a card from five different cards has 5 outcomes.
Use the counting principle to find the number of outcomes when you flip a coin and select one of five different cards at random.
$2 \times 5 = 10$ possible outcomes

64. a) The die has no face with a zero and therefore the probability of obtaining a zero is equal to zero.
b) one face out of 6 has 5 on it, the probability is equal to 1/6
c) Faces with 5 and 6 have number greater than 4. Therefore two faces out of 6 are greater than 4, probability is equal to 2/6 = 1/3.

65. From this experiment, 5 students picked the blue as their favorite color and therefore 15 picked a favorite color that is not blue.
Therefore, if a student is surveyed the probability that he/she will pick a color that is not blue is equal to 15/20 = 3/4.
