 Computaion is the process of calculating or determining something by mathematical or logical methods.
 The computation operations that we are going to study in these chapter are: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division
 Using computation operations we can find answer to different mathematical problems.
Addition
 Addition is performed by adding the digits at ones place, carrying them over and then adding the digits in the tens place and so on.
 Addition is commutative. It means that the order does not matter.
i.e, 1+2 is same as 2+1.
1+2=2+1=3
12+23+35=23+35+12= 70
 Addition is associative. It means that as long as the order remains the same grouping doesn’t matter.
For example,
2+3+4=2+3+4
(2+3) +4=2+(3+4)
5+4=2+7
9=9
LHS=RHS
 Addition has identity property. That is, the sum of any number and zero is the original number. For example, 3+0=3.
EXAMPLE 1: Add 234719 and 945735

EXAMPLE 2: Three factories in a town produced 163846, 657853 and 875436 bags of sand last year. Find the total bags of sand produced by the three factories.
SOLUTION: Total bags of sand produced by three factories= 163846+ 657853+ 875436 = 1697135 [ANS]
Subtraction
 Subtraction is the process of taking one number or amount away from another.
 Subtraction is not associative.
For example, (12)3≠1(23) 13≠1(1) 4≠2
 Subtraction is not commutative.
For example,
56≠65
1≠1
EXAMPLE 1: Subtract 965634 from 675432.

EXAMPLE 2:The sum of two number is 236574. If one number is 145634, find the other number.
SOLUTION:
The number is = 236574 – 145634 =90940
Multiplication
 Multiplication is the process of adding a number to itself a certain number of times.
For example,
 i) 5 X 4 = (5 + 5 + 5 + 5)
= 20
ii) 11 X 3 = (11+11+11) =33
 Multiplication is associative.
For example,
(1X2)X3=1X(2X3)
2X3=1X6
6=6
 Multiplication is Commutative.
For example,
4X2=2X4;
8=8
LHS=RHS
 Multiplication has identity property. The product of any number and 1 is that number.
For example,
1X3=3
 Multiplication has distributive property. The distributive property lets us multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then add the products.
For example,
2X(3+4) = (2X3)+(2X4)
2X7=6+8
14=14
LHS=RHS
EXAMPLE 1: Multiply the two numbers 1024 and 234.
SOLUTION:
1 0 2 4 (Multiplicand)
X2 3 4 (Multiplier)
4 0 9 6 (1024 is first multiplied by 4)
3 0 7 2 X (1024 is multiplied by 3) + 2 0 4 8 X X (1024 is multiplied by 2)

EXAMPLE 2: The cost of a wooden chair is Rs.1357. What is the cost of 24 chairs?
SOLUTION:
The cost of 24 chairs are = Rs. (1357X24)
= Rs.32568 [ANS]
 Division is rightdistributive over addition and subtraction.
For example,
(6+9) ÷3 = (6÷3)+(9÷3)
15÷3=2+3
5=5
LHS=RHS [PROVED]
 Division is not leftdistributive over addition and subtraction.
For example,
60 ÷ (4+6)≠(60÷4)+(60÷6)
60÷10≠15+10
6≠25
LHS≠RHS
 Division is left associative.
For example,
8÷4÷2 = (8÷4) ÷2
=2÷2
=1
EXAMPLE 1: Divide 56132 by 61
SOLUTION: 61)56132(920 549
1232
1220
12
Quotient= 920 Remainder=12
Check: Divisor X Quotient + Remainder= Dividend
61 920 12 56132
EXAMPLE 2: A farmer had 104832 apples in his orchard. 442 apples were packed in each carton and the remaining decayed. How many cartons were made? How many apples decayed?
Solution: No. of cartons=104832÷ 442=237
442)104832(237
0884
1643
1326
3172
3094
78
Remainder=78
Thus, the total number of cartons were 237 and the 78 apples decayed.
