Study Notes

Math Essentials: Fractions, Percentages, Decimals, and More

Mathematics is a vast and interconnected subject, providing a foundation for understanding the world around us. Let's delve into four essential topics, each building upon the previous one, to strengthen your foundational mathematical skills.

Fractions

Fractions represent parts of a whole. They're expressed as a number over a denominator, like [\frac{1}{2}] meaning one-half or [\frac{3}{8}] meaning three-eighths. Fractions can be simplified (reduced to their lowest terms) and can even be expressed as a mix of whole numbers and fractions, such as (2\frac{3}{4}) or (1\frac{1}{3}).

Percentages

Performances, sales figures, and interest rates are often given as percentages. A percentage is a fraction of 100, so 75% means (\frac{75}{100}), or (\frac{3}{4}). Percentages can be converted to fractions, decimals, or whole numbers by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

Decimals

Decimals provide a way to represent fractional parts of whole numbers. For example, 2.5 represents two whole units and five-tenths of a unit. Decimals can be expressed as fractions or percentages, and they're part of our daily lives in measurements, currency, and calculations.

Four Mixed Calculations

When it comes to mixed calculations, which involve whole numbers and fractions, there are four essential operations:

  1. Addition: To add mixed numbers, you first need to convert both to improper fractions, add them, and then convert back to mixed number if needed.

  2. Subtraction: Subtracting mixed numbers follows the same rule as addition. Convert both numbers to improper fractions, subtract, and convert back to mixed number if needed.

  3. Multiplication: Multiplying mixed numbers involves multiplying their whole number parts and fractions parts independently.

  4. Division: Dividing mixed numbers requires us to convert the dividend to an improper fraction, divide it by the divisor, and then convert back to mixed number if needed.

Area

Area represents the amount of space an object occupies on a flat surface. Common units of area include square centimeters (cm²), square inches (in²), square feet (ft²), and square miles (mi²). Area calculations include finding the area of rectangles, squares, circles, and triangles.

Closing Remarks

These fundamental mathematical concepts and skills lay the groundwork for more complex topics and help us make sense of and interact with the world around us. Whether you're a student or a lifelong learner, strengthening your understanding of these essentials will serve you well in your daily life and open the door to further exploration in the vast world of mathematics. Happy calculating!
