Let's review the final 5 questions from Monday's Maoam Maths.
1) Multiplying decimals can be treated the same as multiplying by integers (whole numbers) if we multiply each decimal by 10 first. Instead of 4.6 x 3.2 we can multiply each number by 10 to become 46 x 32 and then use the column method as we would normally (as long as we remember to make them 100 times smaller at the end; Why 100 and not 10? Well, we've made the numbers 10 times bigger and then ten times bigger again, or a hundred times bigger in total). 46 x 32 = 1472 so 4.6 x 3.2 = 14.72
2) To add fractions, we need to make sure the denominators (bottom numbers) are the same. In this case, they are not so we need to find equivalent fractions first. 1/4 is the same as 2/8 if both the numerator (top number) and denominator are doubled. For 7/8 + 2/8, just add the numerators and keep the denominators: 9/8 (1 1/8)
3) A sphere has one face, no vertices and no edges... what a strange shape!
4) Freddie Factor is perfect here! 72 has 12 factors: 1 x 72; 2 x 36; 3 x 24; 4 x 18; 6 x 12; 8 x 9
5) A prime number is an integer that has only 2 factors: 1 and itself. The first four prime numbers are 2, 3, 5 and 7. 2 is the only even prime number as all the others are divisible by 2
