RATIO AND PERCENTAGE
Meaning of ratio
The relation between two quantities (both of the same units) obtained by dividing one quantity with another is called ratio. Ratio can be denoted by using the symbol ( : ).
EXAMPLE 1
What is the ratio between the weight two bags of sugar of 4kg and 6kg respectively?
Solution
Ratio of weights of bags of sugar = 4kg/ 6kg = 2/3 = 2:3
EXAMPLE 2
A pole of length 165cm is divided into two parts such that lengths are in the ration 7:8. Find the length of each part of the pole?
Total ratio = 7 + 8 = 15
First part = ^{7/}_{15 }, second part = 8/15
Length of first part = 7/15 of 165cm
= 7/15 × 165
= 7 x 11 = 77cm
1 x 1
Leght of second part = 165cm – 77cm = 88cm
DIRECT PROPORTION
Examples
 A marker costs $18. Calculate the cost of 5 markers.
 A student went to the market to purchase textbooks. He purchased two textbooks for $24
 What is the price of one notebook?
 What would be the price of 5 such note
Solution
 If one marker = $18
5 markers = $18 x 5 = $90
 2 textbooks = $24
1 textbook = m
2 × m = 1 x $24
2m = $24
M = $24 ÷ 2 = $12. Therefore 1 textbook = $24
(b)since 1 textbook = $12
5 textbooks = $12 × 5 = $60

WEEK THREE
MONEY: PROFIT AND LOSS
MEANING OF PROFIT
When the selling price of an article is higher or greater than the cost price, we have a profit or gain.
Profit = selling price – cost price
MEANING OF LOSS
When the selling price is less than cost price we have a loss.
Loss = cost price – selling price
EXAMPLE 1
If a clock is bought for $1,145 and sold for $1,170, what is the gain or losss
Solution
Cost price of clock = $1,145
Selling price = $1, 170
Since the selling price is more than the cost price, we have a profit
Profit = $1,170 – $1,145 = $25
EXAMPLE 2
By selling a tin of oil for $1,320, a man made a profit of $150. How much did he pay for it?
Solution
Selling price = $1,320
Profit = $150
Cost price = $1,320 – $150 = $1,170.

MEANING OF PROFIT
When the selling price of an article is higher or greater than the cost price, we have a profit or gain.
Profit = selling price – cost price
MEANING OF LOSS

PERIMETER OF PLANE SHAPES
1. Square:
A square is a foursided polygon with all sides equal in length. To find the perimeter of a square, we add up the lengths of all four sides.
Example:
Consider a square with a side length of 5 units. To find the perimeter, we add all four sides: 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20 units. Therefore, the perimeter of the square is 20 units.
2. Rectangle:
A rectangle is a foursided polygon with opposite sides equal in length and all angles equal to 90 degrees. The perimeter of a rectangle is calculated by adding the lengths of all four sides.
Example:
Suppose we have a rectangle with a length of 8 units and a width of 6 units. To find the perimeter, we add all four sides: 8 + 6 + 8 + 6 = 28 units. Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle is 28 units.
3. Triangle:
A triangle is a threesided polygon. To calculate the perimeter of a triangle, we add the lengths of all three sides.
Example:
Consider a triangle with side lengths of 4 units, 5 units, and 6 units. To find the perimeter, we add all three sides: 4 + 5 + 6 = 15 units. Therefore, the perimeter of the triangle is 15 units.
4. Circle:
A circle is a closed curve where all points are equidistant from the center. Instead of measuring the perimeter, we use a different term called the circumference to describe the length around a circle. The circumference is calculated using the formula C = 2πr, where “C” represents the circumference and “r” represents the radius of the circle.
Example:
Let’s say we have a circle with a radius of 3 units. Using the formula, we can calculate the circumference: C = 2π(3) = 6π units. If we approximate π to be 3.14, then the circumference is approximately 18.84 units.
So, when it comes to circles, we use the term “circumference” instead of “perimeter” to describe the length around the shape.
Remember, the perimeter of a plane shape represents the total length of its boundaries. By understanding how to calculate the perimeter of different shapes, we can better understand and measure their size and boundaries.
 Square L
L L perimeter = L + L + L + L = 4L
L
 Rectangle L
L L perimeter = L + L + B + B
= 2L + 2B = 2 ( L+B)
L
 Circle
Perimeter = 2 x π x r
= 2πr
Where π = 22/7 or 3.142
1. Square:
Example: Find the perimeter of a square with a side length of 7 units.
Solution:
Perimeter of a square = 4 * side length
Perimeter = 4 * 7 = 28 units
2. Rectangle:
Example: Find the perimeter of a rectangle with length 10 units and width 5 units.
Solution:
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 * (length + width)
Perimeter = 2 * (10 + 5) = 2 * 15 = 30 units
3. Triangle:
Example: Find the perimeter of a triangle with side lengths 6 units, 8 units, and 10 units.
Solution:
Perimeter of a triangle = sum of all three side lengths
Perimeter = 6 + 8 + 10 = 24 units
4. Circle:
Example: Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 4 units. (Approximate π as 3.14)
Solution:
Circumference of a circle = 2 * π * radius
Circumference = 2 * 3.14 * 4 = 25.12 units
5. Square:
Example: If the perimeter of a square is 24 units, what is the length of each side?
Solution:
Perimeter of a square = 4 * side length
24 = 4 * side length
Side length = 24 / 4 = 6 units
6. Rectangle:
Example: The perimeter of a rectangle is 36 units, and its length is 10 units. Find the width.
Solution:
Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 * (length + width)
36 = 2 * (10 + width)
36 = 20 + 2 * width
2 * width = 36 – 20 = 16
Width = 16 / 2 = 8 units
7. Triangle:
Example: The perimeter of a triangle is 15 units, and two sides are 4 units and 5 units long. Find the length of the third side.
Solution:
Perimeter of a triangle = sum of all three side lengths
15 = 4 + 5 + third side length
third side length = 15 – 4 – 5 = 6 units
8. Circle:
Example: Find the circumference of a circle with a diameter of 12 units. (Approximate π as 3.14)
Solution:
Circumference of a circle = π * diameter
Circumference = 3.14 * 12 = 37.68 units
EXAMPLE

EXERCISE
Calculate the area of the triangles with the following dimensions
 Base = 14cm, height = 16cm
 Base = 10cm, height = 8cm
 Base = 25cm, height = 22cm
 Base = 30cm, height = 15cm
 Base = 24cm, height = 18cm
 Base = 14cm, height = 16cm
 Base = 34cm, height = 15cm
 Base = 52cm, height = 48cm
A rightangled triangle is a triangle with one angle measuring 90 degrees (a right angle). The other two angles are acute angles (less than 90 degrees).
The formula for finding the area of a rightangled triangle is:
Area = (base * height) / 2
where the base is the length of the side adjacent to the right angle, and the height is the length of the side perpendicular to the base.
Example 1:
Consider a rightangled triangle with a base of 6 cm and a height of 4 cm. To find the area, we can use the formula:
Area = (base * height) / 2 = (6 cm * 4 cm) / 2 = 12 cm²
Therefore, the area of the rightangled triangle is 12 square centimeters.
Example 2:
Suppose we have a rightangled triangle with a base of 10 meters and a height of 8 meters. Using the area formula:
Area = (base * height) / 2 = (10 meters * 8 meters) / 2 = 40 square meters
So, the area of the rightangled triangle is 40 square meters.
Example 3:
Let’s consider a rightangled triangle with a base of 12 inches and a height of 9 inches. Applying the area formula:
Area = (base * height) / 2 = (12 inches * 9 inches) / 2 = 54 square inches
Hence, the area of the rightangled triangle is 54 square inches.
Example 4:
Suppose we have a rightangled triangle with a base of 5 feet and a height of 3 feet. Using the area formula:
Area = (base * height) / 2 = (5 feet * 3 feet) / 2 = 7.5 square feet
Therefore, the area of the rightangled triangle is 7.5 square feet.
In summary, the area of a rightangled triangle can be calculated by multiplying the base and height and dividing the product by 2. Understanding this formula helps us find the amount of space occupied by a rightangled triangle and is a fundamental concept in geometry.
