Natural numbers are all the numbers from 1 onwards, i.e., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …... and are used for counting. We know since our childhood we are using numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ………..
In reading and writing large numbers we group place values into periods ‘ones or unit’, ‘tens’, ‘hundred’, ‘thousand’, ‘10 thousand’, ‘100 thousand’, ‘million’, ’10 million’, ‘100 million
Numbers are used for calculating and counting. These counting numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .......... are called natural numbers. In order to describe the number of elements in a collection with no objects
The properties of addition whole numbers are as follows: Closure property: If a and b are two whole numbers, then a + b is also a whole number. In other words, the sum of any two whole numbers i
There are six properties of multiplication of whole numbers that will help to solve the problems easily. The six properties of multiplication are Closure Property, Commutative Property, Zero Property, Identity Property, Associativity Property and Distributive Property.
The procedure of estimating sum and difference are in the following examples. Example 1: Estimate the sum 5290 + 17986 by estimating the numbers to their nearest (i) hundreds (ii) thousands.
The procedure of estimating product and quotient are in the following examples. Example 1: Estimate the product 958 × 387 by rounding off each factor to its greatest place.
The properties of whole numbers are as follows: The number 0 is the first and the smallest whole numbers. • All natural numbers along with zero are called whole numbers.
Numbers on a line is called the representation of whole numbers on number line. The number line also helps us to compare two whole numbers, i.e., to decide which of the two given whole numbers
1. When zero is subtracted from the number, the difference is the number itself. For example, 8931 – 0 = 8931, 5649 – 0 = 5649 2. When a number is subtracted from itself the difference is zero. For example, 5485 – 5485 = 0 3. When 1 is subtracted from a number, we get its
The whole numbers are the counting numbers including 0. We have seen that the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6……. etc. are natural numbers. These natural numbers along with the number zero
Addition of numbers using number line will help us to learn how a number line can be used for addition. Addition of numbers can be well understood with the help of the number line.
Subtraction of numbers using number line will help us to learn how a number line can be used for subtracting one number from the another number.
Practice the questions given in the worksheet on reading and writing large numbers to group place values into periods in hundred, thousand, million and billion. The questions are related to writing
The properties of adding integers are discussed here along with the examples. 1. The addition (sum) of any two integers is always an integer. For example: (i) 5 + 9 = 14 ∈ Z (ii) (5) + 9 = 4 ∈ Z
