Notes and Study Helps

Some notes and special study helps are given to help with individual questions on the review
sheet. These correspond with the question numbers on the review sheet.

1, 2, 51. Divisibility Rules: A number is said to be divisible by another number if the second
number divides evenly into it and there is no remainder. For example 15 is divisible by 5 because
when you divide 5 into 15 the answer is a whole number (3) and there is no remainder.
Divisibility rules are rules that we can use to quickly check if a number can divide evenly into
another number without having to do the actual division.

The divisibility rules that students should know are as follows:

A whole number is divisible by:

2 if the number is even (ends in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8).
3 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 3.
4 if the number represented by the last two digits is divisible by 4.
5 if the ones digit is 0 or 5.
6 if the number is divisible by both 2 and 3.
8 if the number represented by the last 3 digits is divisible by 8.
9 if the sum of the digits is divisible by 9
10 if the ones digit is 0.

3, 4, 52, 53, 55, 56. A variable is a letter, such as n, that represents a number that can vary. An
algebraic expression is a mathematical expression containing a variable; for example, 6x – 4 is an
algebraic expression.

Some examples of algebraic expressions and their meanings are as follows. In each case, n
represents the number.

   Three more than a number: 3 + n or n + 3
   Seven times a number: 7n
   Eight less than a number: n – 8

When we replace a variable with a number in an algebraic expression, we evaluate the
expression. That is, we find the value of the expression for a particular value of the variable.

5, 7. When we compare or relate a variable to an expression that contains the variable, we have a
relation. A relation can be used to describe a pattern and to solve problems. In a growing pattern
of numbers, a relation tells how each term of the pattern relates to the term number, rather than
how each term relates to the term that comes before it.

From a table of values, a relationship can be found. This relationship must be true for all terms in
the table.

Term #           1                 2               3                 4                5                6
Term            7                14              21                28               35               42

In the above table, if you look at Term 1, you might conclude that Term# + 6 = Term. This
works for Term #1 because 1+6 = 7 but it doesn’t work for Term #2 because 2 + 6 does not equal
14, so this is not the relationship.

You might also conclude that the relationship is Term# x 7 = Term. This works for Term#1,
because 1 x 7 = 7. When we check it with the other Term #’s we see that it also works. i.e.) 2 x7
= 14, 3 x 7 =21 … Therefore we can conclude that we have found the relationship between Term
# and Term for the whole table.

Once we know the relationship for the table, we can use it to find the value for any Term if give
the Term #, without having to calculate all the terms in between. For example, if the above table
were extended the value of the term for Term # 500 would be 500 x 7 = 3500.

I = {…, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3, +4 …}

Colored tiles can be used to represent integers. A tile representing + 1 and a tile representing -1
form a zero pair. These tiles combine to model zero.

In the example above each white tile represents + 1 and each black tile represents
-1. Each of the five black tiles can be combined with a white tile to form a zero pair, which
equals zero. When this is done there is still one white tile left over, so the total value of all the
tiles combined is +1.

For additional information and practice see the following from Math Makes Sense 7

Adding Integers on a Number Line: p.60-64

Instead of using tiles or a number line, the following rules may be used to add integers:

1. If the signs are the same, add the numbers and keep the same sign.
Examples:      (+3) + (+5) = +8
(-7) + (-5) = -12

2. If the signs of the integers are different, subtract the numbers and take the sign of the
numerically larger number.
Examples:       (-9) + (+4) = -5
(+8) + (-3) = +5

15. Colored tiles can be used to subtract integers. The concept of zero pairs may be used to
subtract integers.

To add integers, we combine groups of tiles. To subtract integers, we do the reverse, we remove
them from a group. Adding a zero pair to a set of tiles does not change its value. For example, (-
3) + 0 = -3. If we do not have enough positive or negative tiles to take away from a group, we
can add zero pairs until we have enough to take away. For example, for the question (+3) – (-2),
we can do the following.

We can represent + 3 as follows:

□□□

If we want to subtract (-2) from this, we can’t because there are no black tiles to take away.
However, if we add two zero pairs to the model it will look different as shown below but the
value will still be the same.

□□□□□
■■

Now we have two black tiles, representing (-2) to take away. When we do, we are left with 5
white tiles as shown below, which has a value of (+5).

□□□□□

Therefore (+3) – (-2) = (+5).

In addition to using tiles to subtract, we can also use a number line as explained later, or we can
use the following rule to subtract integers:

Example: (-6) – (+7) = (-6) + (-7) = (-13)

Example: (-8) – (-5) = (-8) + (+5) = (-3)

16, 17, 61, 62. A number line can be used to subtract an integer. Usually this is done on a
horizontal number line, but it can also be done on a vertical number line as in this question or as
can be found on a thermometer. To subtract a positive integer on a number line, you move to the
left. To subtract a negative integer is the same as adding its opposite, so you move to the right.
On a vertical number line, to subtract a positive integer, you move down. To subtract a negative
integer is the same as adding its opposite, so you move up.

18, 64. To convert a fraction to a decimal, you can divide the numerator (top number in the
fraction) by the denominator (bottom number in the fraction). For example, ¾ as a decimal is
equal to 3 ÷ 4, which equals 0.75. Because this has a definite number of decimal places, it is said
to be a terminating decimal. To change 2/3 to a decimal, we calculate 2 ÷ 3 and get a result of
0.6666666666….When we do this we can never finish the calculation because some of the digits
repeat forever. This is called a repeating decimal and it is written as 0. 6 . Sometimes it is easier
to convert a fraction to a decimal if you first write it in simplest terms. For example 20/36 can be
rewritten as 5/9, which is easier to divide.

For certain fractions another method can be used to convert it to a decimal if an equivalent
fraction can be found that has a denominator that is a power of 10 (10, 100, 1000,…) See sheet

22, 67. When multiplying decimals the decimals don’t have to be lined up. Instead just line up
the numbers and multiply normally. When you have a final answer, you then need to decide
where to place the decimal point. To do this, you add the total number of decimal places in the
factors (the numbers being multiplied). There will be that many decimal places in the answer.
For example if you multiply a number that has one decimal place by a number that has three
decimal places, the product would have a total of four decimal places. Also remember that you
can use the inverse operation (division) to check multiplication. You can also use estimation to

(See assignment Canadian Mathematics 7, p. 94 for additional information and practice)

23. When dividing decimals, you need to start by making sure the divisor is a whole number. If it
isn’t you must multiply both the divisor and the dividend by a power of 10 to make it a whole
number. In the given question, 836.4 ÷3.4, you would begin by multiplying both the dividend
and the divisor by 10 to get a new question, 8364 ÷34. Then you would divide normally. When
you divide, place the decimal in the quotient (the answer) directly above the decimal in the
dividend.

If the divisor had two decimal places, you would have to multiply both the divisor and dividend
by 100. If it had three decimal places, you would have to multiply by 1000, etc.

Also remember that you can use the inverse operation (multiplication) to check division. You

BEDMAS. In BEDMAS, each letter stands for an operation:
B: Brackets
E: Exponents
D: Division or M: Multiplication
Division and Multiplication are at the same spot in the order so are simply done left to right.
Addition and Subtraction are the same and are simply worked from left to right.

25. Any fraction or decimal can be written as a percent, and vice versa. Percent is another name
for hundredths. To change a percent to a decimal, begin by dropping the % sign and then divide
by 100; (move the decimal point 2 places to the left).

Example #1: Write 82% as a decimal.

Begin by dropping the % sign.

Then divide by 100.
82÷100 = 0.82

Example #2: Write 40% as a decimal.

Begin by dropping the % sign.

Then divide by 100.
40 ÷ 100 = 0.40 or 0.4

26. Some fractions can easily be converted to percents by first finding equivalent fractions with a
denominator of 100 and then rewriting it as a percent.

Example: Write 15/20 as a percent.

Begin by writing an equivalent fraction for 15/20.
15/20 = 75/100 (Both the numerator and denominator were multiplied by 5)

Then rewrite as a percent.
75/100 = 75%

If the fraction cannot be written as an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100, then a
different method is used to convert the fraction to a percent. In such cases, you would divide the
numerator by the denominator to get a decimal. Then you would move the decimal two places to
the right and add a % sign.

Example: Write 3/16 as a percent.
Begin by dividing the numerator (3) by the denominator (16)
3 ÷ 16 = 0.1875

Then move the decimal point two places to the right and add a % sign.

parts. This would be the numerator or top number in your fraction. Then you would count the
assumes that all of the parts are an equal size.

/////////////////////// ///////////////////////

In the diagram above 4 parts are shaded, so 4 is the numerator. Altogether there are 10 parts, so
10 is the denominator. The fraction that is shaded then is 4/10. Sometimes fractions can be
simplified into lower terms if there is a number that divides evenly into both the numerator and
denominator. In this case, both 4 and 10 can be divided by 2, to get 2 and 5 respectively.
Therefore, this fraction in lowest terms is 2/5.

28. To find out what fraction of the diagram is shaded, the above method can be used. To extend
this to show the fraction as a percent, the fraction would need to be converted to a percent as
explained in question 26.

then the numbers to be compared can be positioned on the number line. Then they can be
put in order by simply reading from the lowest number on the left to the highest number

   Equivalent Fractions: Before fractions can be compared, they must have the same
denominator. If all of the denominators are the same, then the numerators can be
compared. The fraction with the lowest numerator is the least and the number with the
highest numerator is the greatest.

   Decimals: If all of the numbers are converted to decimals, they can then be compared.

Before mixed fractions (such as 3 5 ) can be compared or converted to equivalent fractions or to
decimals, they should be written as improper fractions ( 17 ). To convert a mixed fraction to an
5
improper fraction (where the numerator is larger than the denominator), you must first multiply
the denominator by the whole number part of the mixed fraction. Then add this to the numerator
to get a new sum. Then place this sum as the numerator over the original denominator. In the
example above, 5 x 3=15. Then add the numerator: 15+ 2= 17. Then place this over the original
denominator: 175

When subtracting decimals, remember to line up the decimal points. Also remember that you can
use the inverse operation (addition) to check addition. You can also use front-end estimation to
check if your answer is reasonable. (Front –end estimation is simply ignoring the part of the
number after the decimal point and calculating the rest to get an approximate number. This
show you if your decimal point has been reasonably placed. Example) By using front-end
estimation on the question 15.147 + 3.3694, I can simply add 15 + 3 to know that the answer
should be somewhere around 18.

Adding and subtracting decimals are extensions of adding and subtracting whole numbers.
Therefore rules such as carrying and borrowing still apply.

are shown as parts of one whole. Each sector of a circle represents a percent of the whole circle.
The whole circle represents 100%. If one sector of the graph was to represent 25% of the data,
then it would be represented by a piece that took up 25% of the total circle.

To estimate how much of a circle graph is represented by different data, you need to estimate
how much of the total circle is represented by that data. If the percents are given in each sector,
this can be used to accurately determine how much data is represented by each sector.

(See Math Makes Sense 7, p.156-160 for additional information and practice).

49. To calculate how many stamps Carol has from each country, you need to multiply the percent
given in each sector by the total number of stamps she has. For example, 25% of her stamps are
from Italy so this would be 25% of 500 which equals 125. See question 30 for instructions on
finding the percent of a number). To find how many more stamps she has from one country as
compared with another country you need to find the difference by subtracting.

(See Math Makes Sense 7, p.156-160 for additional information and practice).

50. The central angle of a sector on a circle graph is
the angle located at the center of the circle for that
sector. In a complete circle, there are 360°. On this
circle graph, 25% of the budget is for rent. Therefore,
the sector for rent takes up 25% of the graph and the
central angle for that sector is 25% of 360° or 90°.

To calculate the central angle, you must multiply the
percent that represents the data by 360°.

A Venn Diagram is used to compare and contrast different items, in this case numbers. In this
Venn Diagram, the circle on the left contains all of the numbers up to 20 that are divisible by 2.
The circle on the left shows all of the numbers that are divisible by 3. The overlapping region
shows numbers that are divisible by both 2 and 3. Those numbers that do not fit into either circle
because they are not divisible by 2 or 3 are placed outside the circles. See question 1 for

63. To change a decimal to a fraction, begin by seeing how many decimal places are in the
decimal. If the decimal has only one decimal place, then write the number as a fraction with a
denominator of 10. If there are two decimal places, write the fraction with a denominator of 100.

After you have written the number as a fraction, it can sometimes be simplified by writing an
equivalent fraction in lower terms. To do this simply divide the numerator and denominator by
the same number, a number that divides evenly into both numbers.

Example #1: Write 0.62 as a fraction.

Begin by counting the number of decimal places. There are two decimal places (numbers after
the decimal), which means that the decimal extends to the hundredths’ place, so the fraction will
have a denominator of 100.
0.62 = 62/100
This can be simplified by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2.
62/100 = 31/50

Example #2: Write 0.4 as a fraction. 0.4 = 4/10 = 2/5

70. A bicycle wheel is a circle. The circumference                                                      of the
wheel is the distance around the outside of the                                                         circle.
The circumference is the distance the bike would                                                        travel in
one rotation of the wheel. See question 32.

C=2πr

To calculate the distance the bike would travel you                                                     have to
multiply the radius by 2 and then by π (3.14) to see                                                    how far
it would travel in one rotation of the wheel. Then                                                      you
would have to multiply that total by 500 because                                                        there
were 500 rotations of the wheel.

71. See question 47 for instructions on calculating the area of a circle. Since a semicircle is
simply half of a complete circle, you would need to divide the area of the circle by 2 to find the
area of the semicircle.

(See Math Makes Sense 7, p. 148-152 for additional information and practice).

72. Use divisibility rules to list some of the numbers, starting at 100 (the first 3-digit number)
that are divisible by 5. (The number ends in a 5 or 0). Then check which is the first of these
numbers that is also divisible by 9 (The sum of the digits is divisible by 9). For similar questions,
use the same process, though you will have to use different divisibility rules if different numbers
are used.

(See Math Makes Sense 7, p. 10-13 for additional information and practice).

73. If a number is divisible by two different numbers, then it must also be divisible by any of the
factors of either of those numbers and by any of the factors of one of those numbers multiplied
by any of the factors of the other number.

The factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4 and 8.
The factors of 9 are 1, 3 and 9.

Therefore, any number that is divisible by both 8 and 9 must also be divisible by 1, 2, 3 and 4
and by any of the factors of one of the numbers multiplied by any of the factors of the other
number: by 6 (2 x 3), by 12 (3 x 4), by 18 (2 x 9), by 24 (3 x 8), by 36 (4 x 9) and by 72 (8x9).

74. To solve this problem, you should break the question into parts.

   Calculate the area of the square first.
A = L x W or 4 x side (since all sides of a square are the same length.)
   Then calculate the area of the parallelogram.
A = b x h. (See question 43).
   Then add the area of the square and the parallelogram together.
   Then subtract the area of the triangle since this part is overlapping and you don’t want to
count it twice. A = 1 b x h (See question 45).

75. To solve this problem, you should break the question into parts.

   First calculate the area of the large circle. (See question 47) A= π r 2 . The diameter of
this circle is given. To find the radius, you need to divide the diameter by 2.
   Next find the area of one of the smaller circles. Each circle is half the diameter of the
larger circle and each radius is half the diameter of a smaller circle. Therefore, the radius
of each of the smaller circles is the diameter of the larger circle divided by 4. A= π r 2 .
   To find the total area of both smaller circles, you need to multiply the area of one of the
circles by 2.
   Finally, subtract the total area of both smaller circles from the total area of the large
circle. This will leave the total area of the shaded regions.
