Category : 4th Class

### Division of a Decimal by the Power of 10

Case 1: When a decimal is divided by 10. Like $\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}0$ The decimal is shifted one digit left. Thus $\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}0=\text{545}.\text{632}$

Case 2: When a decimal is divided by 100. Like $\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}00$ The decimal is shifted two digit left. Thus$\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}00=\text{54}.\text{5632}$

Case 3:  When a decimal is divided by 1000. Like$~\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}000$ The decimal is shifted three digit left. Thus $\text{5456}.\text{32}\div \text{1}000=\text{5}.\text{45632}$

Note: As you increase the power of 10 by one, the decimal point shift one digit left.

For example: $5463.23\div {{10}^{1}}=546.323$ $5463.23\div {{10}^{2}}=54.6323$ $5463.23\div {{10}^{3}}=5.46323$

Divide 786.45 by 100

Solution:

100 contains two zeroes, therefore, shift the point two digit left in the decimal. Thus$\text{786}.\text{45}\div \text{1}00=\text{7}.\text{8645}$

• Fraction is a part of a whole. It is represented by a/b when$b\ne o$.
• Fraction is a part of whole, therefore, it has two parts, upper part is known as NUMERATOR and lower part is known as DENOMINATOR and they are separated by a line known as DIVISION LINE
• The fractions having same denominator are called like fraction.
• The fractions having different denominator are called unlike fraction.
• In addition of like fractions, common denominator is the denominator for the required fraction.
• A decimal number is broadly divided into two parts whole part and decimal part.
• The two parts are separated by a dot (.) called the decimal point.
• From the decimal point as you move on the left the place value of a digit is multiplied by 10 and as you move on the right it is divided by 10.
• When a decimal is multiplied by 10, the decimal is shifted one digit right.
• When a decimal is multiplied by 100, the decimal is shifted two digit right,
• When a decimal is multiplied by 1000, the decimal is shifted three digit right.
• When a decimal is divided by 10, the decimal is shifted one digit left.
• When a decimal is divided by 100, the decimal is shifted two digit left.
• When a decimal is divided by 1000, the decimal is shifted three digit left.

• The term fraction came from the Latin "fractio" that means breaking.
• In ancient Rome, fractions were written using words instead of numbers.
• Indian mathematician wrote fractions without using bar. They wrote just a number above other. It was the Arabians who added the bar separating the two numbers.
• The decimal point was invented by John Napier.
• About 5000 year ago/ Indian mathematicians used a form of decimal numbering.
• China is considered to be the earliest civilization to adopt the concept of Hindu- Arabic numeral system.

Represent the shaded part of the following figures as fraction and choose what kind of fractions they are?

Figure (i) Figure (ii)

(a) They are like fractions.

(b) They are unlike fractions.

(c) They are equivalent fractions.

(d) All of these

(e) None of these

Explanations-

In the figure (i), 4 parts out of 8 parts are shaded. Thus fractional representation for the shaded part$=\frac{4}{8}$ In the figure (ii), 6 parts out of 8 parts are shaded. Thus fractional representation for the shaded part$=\frac{6}{8}$ Both the representations have same denominator. Therefore, they are like fractions.

Which one of the following is the equivalent fraction of$\frac{7}{8}$?

(a) $\frac{9}{8}$

(b) $\frac{7}{9}$

(c) $\frac{35}{40}$

(d) $\frac{11}{40}$

(e) None of these

Explanation-

When we multiply both numerator and denominator of the fractionby 5, we get$\frac{35}{40}$. Thus,$\frac{35}{40}$and$\frac{7}{8}$are equivalent fractions.

Jack: $\frac{7}{9}$and$\frac{7}{13}$, are like fractions as both has same numerator.

Cody: To be like fractions, denominators of the fractions should be same instead of numerator. Who is correct?

(a) Jack

(b) Cody

(c) Both of them are correct

(d) Both of them are partially incorrect

(e) None of these

(a) $\frac{1}{5}$

(b) $\frac{2}{5}$

(c) $\frac{3}{5}$

(d) $\frac{7}{5}$

(e) None of these

Explanation-

Numerator is greater than denominator in the fraction$\frac{7}{5}$.Thus$\frac{7}{5}$is an improper fraction.

(a) $\frac{p}{q}$is a proper fraction

(b) $\frac{p}{q}$is an improper fraction

(a) $\frac{5}{6}$

(b) $\frac{23}{18}$

(c) $\frac{7}{9}$

(d) $\frac{8}{9}$

(e) None of these

Explanations-

Let the fraction X should be added to$\frac{8}{9}$ According to the question$\frac{8}{9}\times X=\frac{31}{18},X=\frac{31}{18}-\frac{8}{9},X=\frac{5}{6}$

Zacob has 8 liters of milk. He uses$2\frac{1}{2}$liters for pudding and$2\frac{1}{8}$liters for curd. What quantity of milk is left with him?

(a) $\frac{21}{26}$

(b)$\frac{5}{27}$

(c) $\frac{8}{27}$

(d) $\frac{27}{8}$

(e) None of these

Explanations-

Total milk Zacob has = 8 L Total milk used by Jacob $=2\frac{1}{2}L+2\frac{1}{8}L$ Or$(\frac{5}{2}+\frac{17}{8})L=(\frac{20+17}{8})L=\frac{37}{8}L,$, So remaining milk$=8-\frac{37}{8}=\frac{27}{8}L$

Choose the correct option for 50.203.

(a)$50+20+\frac{3}{10}$

(b) $50+\frac{2}{10}+\frac{3}{100}$

(c) $50+\frac{2}{10}+\frac{3}{1000}$

(e) None of these

Explications-

In the decimal 50.203, 5 is at the tens place, 2 is at the tenths place, and 3 is at the hundredths place. Thus, expanded form of 50.203 is$50+\frac{2}{10}+\frac{3}{1000}$.
