How to Dissect and Solve a Word Problem Organization and persistence Tootsie Roll Industries sales reached one hundred ninety four million dollars and a record profit of twenty two million five hundred fifty six thousand dollars Round the sales and profit figures all the way Sales One hundred ninety four million dollars 194 000 000 200 000 000 Profit Twenty two million five hundred fifty six thousand dollars 22 556 000 20 000 000 STEPS TO SOLVING A PROBLEM When zeros are at the end of the multiplicand or the multiplier or both disregard the zeros and multiply Multiplying a Whole Number by a Power of 10 1 Count the number of zeros in the power of 10 2 Attach that number of zeros to the right side of the other whole number to obtain the answer Insert commas as needed The United States numbering system Also known as base 10 system Decimal System Decimal Point The center of the decimal system Numbers on the left ot his are whole numbers and the numbers on the right are decimal numbers Rounding All the Way You round to the first digit of the number and have only one nonzero digit remaining in the number Addends When you unite two or more numbers Sum The total of addends Minuend In subtraction the top largest number is this Subtrahend The number you subtract from the minuend When you subtract the subtrahend from the minuend you get this Difference Multiplicand The top number in multiplication It is the number you want to multiply Multiplier The bottom number the number doing the multiplying Product The final number in multiplication Partial Products The numbers between the multiplier and the product Divisor Dividend Division asks how many times one number is contained in another number Quotient The answer or result of division Partial Quotient When the divisor doesn t divide evenly into the dividend the result is this Remainder The left over amount in division Decimal numbers written to the right of a decimal point decimal representing a fraction the denominator has a power of 10 Decimal fraction Decimal point center of the decimal system located between units and tenths Numbers to the left are whole numbers to the right are decimal numbers mixed decimal combination of a whole number and decimal pure decimal has no whole numbers to the left of the decimal point repeating decimal decimal numbers that repeat themselves continuously and thus do not end rounding decimals reducing the number of decimals to an indicated position Addends A number being added In 3 5 8 the addends are 3 and 5 Decimal Point A point between a whole number and a decimal fraction Decimal System A number system based on 10 The result in a subtraction problem In 8 3 5 the difference is 5 The number being divided In 8 4 2 the dividend is 8 The number doing the dividing In 8 4 2 the divisor is 4 Difference Dividend Divisor Minuend Multiplicand The number being multiplied The number from which another number is subtracted In 7 4 3 the minuend is 7 The product s obtained during the intermediate stages in order to complete a multiplication process The quotient s obtained during the intermediate stages in order to complete a division process Multiplier The number doing the multiplying Partial Products Partial Quotient Product Quotient Remainder The result of a subtraction Rounding All the Way The result of a multiplication In 3x4 12 the product is 12 The number resulting from dividing one number by another Is when you round to the first digit of the number the leftmost digit and have only one nonzero digit remaining in the number The number being subtracted In 7 4 3 the subtrahend is 4 The result of an addition In 2 3 5 the sum is 5 Subtrahend Sum Whole Number 0 1 2 3 and so on True or false Given the number 86 3 the digits to the right of the decimal are whole numbers True or false The center of the decimal system is the whole number Given the number 108 924 Identify to which whole number group the 924 belongs Reason 924 is in the first whole number group to the left of the decimal Given the number 1 087 the number 1 is in what position Reason 1 is in the thousands position Given the number 102 5 select the option with the correct use of the word and Reason When reading and writing numbers the and is reserved for the decimal This should read One hundred two and five tenths Given the number 458 200 392 Identify to which whole number group the 458 belongs millions Reason 458 is in the third word number group to the left of the decimal Change two million one hundred four to a numeric number 2 100 004 Reason This number would be read as two million one hundred thousand four When reading or writing a numeric number you begin on the left right reading each group of three digits as if it were alone then adding the group name at the end Given the number 108 924 Identify to which whole number group the 924 belongs Reason 924 is in the first whole number group to the left of the decimal When rounding 6 459 to the nearest thousand the four would cause what change to the six units round down round up no change Reason The rounded answer is 6 000 We never reduce the rounded number Reason The rounded answer is 6 000 The 4 does not cause the 6 to round Reason The rounded answer is 6 000 Since 4 is less than 5 the 6 is not rounded Correct Answer A shortcut to multiplying 1200 and 300 would be to multiply 12 3 then add how many zeros Reason There are two zeros in the multiplicand and two in the multiplier therefore add four zeros to the product no change 4 Reason 12 3 36 Add 4 zeros to equal 360 000 The result of subtraction is the Blank difference Reason The minuend less the subtrahend results in the difference The numbers between the multiplier and the product are Partial product https quizlet com
