Computation Operations

Computation Operations

  • 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, (1-2)-3≠1-(2-3) -1-3≠1-(-1) -4≠2

  • Subtraction is not commutative.

For example,

5-6≠6-5

-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,

  1. 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)
2 3 9 6 1 6 [ANS]

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 right-distributive 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 left-distributive 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.

Recap

  • An addition is commutative, associative and has an identity property.
  • Subtraction is neither commutative nor associative.
  • Multiplication is commutative, distributive, associative and has an identity property.
  • A division is a right distributive over addition and subtraction but not left distributive.
  • A division is left associative.
  • Divisor X Quotient + Remainder= Dividend
