1 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #1 Columbus State Community College Chapter 4 Section 5 Problem Solving: Mixed Numbers and Estimating

2 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #2 Problem Solving: Mixed Numbers and Estimating 1.Identify mixed numbers and graph them on a number line. 2.Rewrite mixed numbers as improper fractions, or the reverse. 3.Estimate the answer and multiply or divide mixed numbers. 4.Estimate the answer and add or subtract mixed numbers. 5.Solve application problems containing mixed numbers.

3 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #3 Illustrating a Mixed Number with a Diagram EXAMPLE 1 Illustrating a Mixed Number with a Diagram 1 whole of a whole shaded parts 1 shaded part whole parts shaded is equivalent to shaded parts. 9 4

4 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #4 8 5 – 3 5 – Illustrating a Mixed Number with a Number Line EXAMPLE 1 Illustrating Mixed Numbers with a Number Line – 3 5 – 1 is equivalent to

5 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #5 Mixed Numbers NOTE 1 2 4represents – represents – –, which can also be written as – –

6 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #6 Mixed Numbers NOTE In algebra we usually work with the improper fraction form of mixed numbers, especially for negative mixed numbers. However, positive mixed numbers are frequently used in daily life, so its important to know how to work with them. For example, we usually say inches rather than inches

7 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide # Writing a Mixed Number as an Improper Fraction Step 1Multiply the denominator of the fraction times the whole number and add the numerator of the fraction to the product. Step 2Write the result of Step 1 as the numerator and keep the original denominator. 4 5 = = =

8 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #8 Writing a Mixed Number as an Improper Fraction Write as an improper fraction. EXAMPLE 2 Writing a Mixed Number as an Improper Fraction Step = 72 Step 2 = Then = ( 8 9 ) Same denominator

9 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #9 Writing an Improper Fraction as a Mixed Number To write an improper fraction as a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator. The quotient is the whole number part (of the mixed number), the remainder is the numerator of the fraction part, and the denominator remains the same. Divide 38 by Remainder Original denominator

10 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #10 Writing Improper Fractions as Mixed Numbers (a)Write as a mixed number. EXAMPLE 3 Writing Improper Fractions as Mixed Numbers 28 3 Divide 28 by Remainder Original denominator

11 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #11 Writing Improper Fractions as Mixed Numbers (b)Write as a mixed number. EXAMPLE 3 Writing Improper Fractions as Mixed Numbers 42 9 Divide 42 by Remainder Original denominator = Write in lowest terms. 6 9

12 Ch 4 Sec 5: Slide #12 Estimating Mixed Numbers To estimate answers, first round each mixed number to the nearest whole number. If the numerator is half of the denominator or more, round up the whole number part. If the numerator is less than half the denominator, leave the whole number as it is.
