Addition of Integers on a Number Line
After learning representation of integers on a number
line now we will learn addition of integers on a number line. For the purpose
of learning addition of integers on a number line we have to keep certain
points things in mind.
 We know that positive numbers are on the right side of zero.
Hence while adding positive numbers we will move to the right side of number
line.
 We know that negative numbers are on the left side of zero.
Hence while adding negative numbers we will move to the left side of number
line.
Now we need
to follow certain steps for adding integers on number line.
 First we have to draw a number line
 Then mark the integers on the number line
 Then mark the first number of the addend on the number line
 Then mark the second number of the addend on the number line
Now if the second addend is positive we will move to the right
side of the number line
If the second addend is negative then we will move to the left
side of the number line
Here are few examples to show to addition of integers on
a number line.
1. Add 3
and 2 on a number line.
Solution:
The first number is 3 (positive) so we moved 3 steps to
the right of zero to reach 3 and then the second number is also positive so we
moved two more steps to the right again to reach 5.
Therefore, 3 + 2 = 5
2. Add
(2 ) + (2 ) on a number line.
Solution:
The first number is negative that is 2 so we
mover 2 steps to the left side of zero to reach 2. Then the second number is
also negative that is 2 so we will again move two steps to the left of zero to
reach at 4.
Therefore, (2 ) + (2 ) =  4
3. Add 4
+ (2 ) on a number line.
Solution:
Here the first number is positive 4 hence we will move 4
steps to the right side of zero to reach + 4. The second number is negative – 2
so we will move to the left to reach 2.
Therefore, 4 + (2) = 2
4. Add ( 4) + 3 on a number line.
Solution:
Here the first number is 4 so we have to move 4 places
to the left side of zero to reach – 4. The second number is + 3 so we have to
move three steps to the right 4 to reach 1.
Therefore, ( 4) + 3 = 1

This worksheet on simplification of fractions is based on the concept of ‘BODMAS’. In simplification of fraction we can find that we are suppose to carry out multiple basic operation in each sum and that has to be done following the ‘BODMAS’ rule. A single sum can contain


Still now we have learnt about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions separately and have also discussed about the properties of each of them separately. However, now we move onto simplification of fraction. What does it mean? The basic four

This worksheet involves a variety of problems on division of fractional numbers. It will give the learners an overall practice on division of fractional numbers. it will help in boosting their confidence and will build their knowledge by practicing every type of sums.

This topic would deal with problems on division of fractional number. We are familiar with the fact that division of fraction with another fraction involves multiplying the fraction with the reciprocal or multiplicative inverse of another fraction. The same concept would be

We are already learnt division of fractional numbers. It is basically multiplication of the first fraction with the reciprocal or multiplicative inverse of another fractional number. In case of finding the multiplicative inverse we actually interchange the numerator and

This topic discusses about division of a whole number by a fraction. In this we have to divide the whole number that is positive integers including zero by a fractional number. When dividing a whole number by a fraction we actually multiply the whole number by the

This topic would discuss about division of a fractional number with another fractional number. In this case if any one or both of the fractional number are in mixed fraction then we will have to change that mixed fraction into improper fraction.

This topic would discuss on dividing a fraction by a whole number. Whole numbers are numbers from 0 to infinity i.e. {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9……} They are not represented in numerator and denominator form. However, for the purpose of division and multiplication of the

Here few problems are illustrated on multiplication of fractional numbers. This will give the learners an outline about how story sums on multiplication of fractions are solved. It will also provide the learners a better understanding of application on multiplication of

This worksheet will provide a variety of sums on multiplication of fraction for practice. It will help in clear understanding of the topic multiplication on fraction. It will also develop confidence and better indepth knowledge on the topic.

We know that when a fraction is multiplied by its reciprocal the result is always 1. This reciprocal is also known as multiplicative inverse. In order to find out the multiplicative inverse of a fraction the following points are to be kept in mind.

We have previously discussed about multiplication of fractional number. However there are few properties of multiplication of fractional numbers which can be applied in certain cases in order to make calculation easier and faster. These properties are helpful in better

This topic deals with multiplication of a fraction by another fraction. For eg : 3/7 by 5/11. Here both the numbers are in numerator and denominator form. Here are few examples to show multiplication of fraction by another fraction

This topic deals with multiplication of a whole number i.e. (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7…….) by a fraction i.e. a number in p/q form. When we are multiplying a whole number with a fraction or fractional number then first we have to change that whole number into fraction just by
