5.1 Indices

5.1.1 Indices
1.      A number expressed in the form an is known as an index notation.
2.      an is read as ‘a to the power of n’ where a is the base and n is the index.
Example:
3.      If a is a real number and n is a positive integer, then

4.      The value of a real number in index notation can be found by repeated multiplication.
Example:
64 = 6 × 6 × 6 × 6
= 1296

5.      A number can be expressed in index notation by dividing the number repeatedly by the base.
Example:
243 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3
= 35

4.1 Linear Equations I

4.1.1 Equality
1. An equation is a mathematical statement that joins two equal quantities together by an equality sign ‘=’.
Example: 1km = 1000 m

2. If two quantities are unequal, the symbol ‘≠’ (is not equal) is used.
Example: 9 ÷ 4 ≠ 3

4.1.2 Linear Equations in One Unknown
1. A linear algebraic term is a term with one unknown and the power of unknown is one.
Example: 8x, -7y, 0.5y, 3a, …..

2. A linear algebraic expression contains two or more linear algebraic terms which are joined by a plus or minus sign.
Example:
3x – 4y, 4x + 9, 6x – 2y + 5, ……

3. A linear equation is an equation involving numbers and linear algebraic terms.
Example:
5x – 4 = 11, 4x + 7 = 15, 3y – 2 = 7

4.1.3 Solutions of Linear Equations in One Unknown
1. Solving an equation is a process of finding the values of the unknown in the equation.
2. The number that satisfies the equation is called the solution or root of the equation.
Example 1:
x + 4 = 12
x = 12 – 4 ← (When +4 is moved to the right of the equation, it becomes –4)
x = 8

Example 2:
x – 7 = 11
x = 11 + 7 ← (When –7 is moved to the right of the equation, it becomes +7)
x = 18

1.1 Angles and Lines II

Identifying Parallel, Transversals, Corresponding Angles, Alternate Angles and Interior Angles
(A) Parallel lines
v  Parallel lines are lines with the same direction. They remain the same distance apart and never meet.

(B) Transversal lines
v  A transversal is a straight line that intersects two or more straight lines.

(C) Alternate angles

(D) Corresponding angles

(E) Interior angles

PT3 Smart TIP

v  Alternate angles are easily identified by tracing out the pattern “Z” as shown.

v  Corresponding angles are easily identified by the pattern “F” as shown.

v  Interior angles are easily identified by the pattern “C” as shown.

Example 1:
In Diagram below, PQ is parallel to RS. Determine the value of y.
Solution:
Construct a line parallel to PQ and passing through W.
a = 40o and b = 50o ← (Alternate angles)
y = a + b
= 40o + 50o
= 90o

Example 2:
In Diagram below, PSQ and STU are straight lines. Find the value of x.

Solution:

2.1 Squares, Square Roots, Cube and Cube Roots

(A) Squares
The square of a number is the answer you get when you multiply a number by itself.

Example 1:
(a)    132 = 13 × 13 = 169
(b)   (–10)2 = (–10) × (–10) = 100
(c)    (0.4) 2 = 0.4 × 0.4 = 0.16
(d)   (–0.06)2 = (–0.06) × (–0.06) = 0.0036

(B) Perfect Squares
1. Perfect squares are the squares of whole numbers.

2. Perfect squares are formed by multiplying a whole number by itself.
Example:
4 = 2 × 2          9 = 3 × 3          16 = 4 × 4

3. The first twelve perfect squares are:
= 12, 22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 82, 92, 102, 112, 122
= 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144

(C) Square Roots
1. The square root of a positive number is a number multiplied by itself whose product is equal to the given number.

Example 2:

1.1 Directed Numbers
1. Multiplication and division of like signs gives (+)

2. Multiplication and division of unlike signs gives ()

3. Multiplication of 3 integers.

4. Division of 3 integers.

5. BODMAS(Brackets Of Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction)

 ·         Operations in the brackets should be carried out first.            ·         Followed by × or ÷ from left to right.            ·         Followed by + or – from left to right.

Example 1:
(a)    –52 ÷ 13 – 15 × 4
(b)   63 ÷ (16 – 7) × (–2)
(c)    –30 + 9 × 7 – 16

Solution:
(a)
–52 ÷ 13 – 15 × 4
= (–52 ÷ 13) – (15 × 4) ← (calculate from left to right; ÷ and × are done first)
= –4 – 60
= –64

(b)
63 ÷ (16 – 7) × (–2)
= 63 ÷ 9 × (–2) ← (bracket is done first, then work from left to right)
= 7 × (–2)
= –14

(c)
–30 + 9 × 7 – 16
= –30 + (9 × 7) – 16 ← ( multiply first)
= –30 + 63 – 16
= 17
