Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

We have learned to add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers in our previous class. We also learnt the calculations, with and without carryover of numbers 1 to 100.

In this chapter, let us learn more about these four fundamental operations – Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Addition of Numbers

Addition of two or more numbers

Adding 145 and 232, we get 377

145

+ 232

= 377

Addition with carryover

The carried over from ones to be added in tens, carried over from tens to be added in the hundred, and so on use the carry forward process.

For example:

There are 462184 apples and 462526 mangoes in a fruit bowl. How many fruits are there?

Let us add the numbers by carryover.

Hence, total fruits in a fruit bowl are – 9,24,710.

Properties of Subtraction

  • While subtracting, the smaller number is subtracted from the larger number.
  • The calculation starts from the right and goes to the left in subtraction.
  • Borrowing is from the digits placed on the left of the digit for which borrowing is done.

Subtract the following numbers

  • 45963 – 24542
  • 8,54,445 – 32,123

Subtraction by borrowing

The number of boys in a school is 48974. If the total strength of the school is 89543, find the number of girls in the school.

Solution:

To find the total number of girls in the school, we have to subtract the number of boys from the total strength of the school.

The total strength of the school = 89543

The number of boys in a school = 48974

The number of girls in a school = 89543 – 48974 =?

Hence the number of girls in a school = 40,569.

Properties of Multiplication

  1. Multiplicand * Multiplier = Product
  2. Multiplying a number by 1 does not change the value of the number.
  3. Changing the order of two numbers while multiplying will not change the product.
  4. For finding the product of a three-digit number by another three-digit number, we add the products of ones, tens and hundreds with the given number.
  5. Multiplying a number by 1000, 2000, 3000, ….. 9000, we multiply the number by 1, 2, 3, and 9 and write as many zeros on the right side with the multiplier. For example – 40×1000 = 40,000.

Properties of Division

  • The division process is to start from the left.
  • Dividend = Quotient × Divisor + Remainder.
  • Dividing ‘0’ by any number except the ‘0’ quotient is ‘0’.
  • Dividing any number by 1 will give the result as the number.
  • Dividing any number by 10, the one’s place of that number is the remainder, and the remaining digit will be the quotient.

Examples:

Divide 456 by 6 and write the dividend, divisor, quotient and remainder.

Solution:

6 ) 456 ( 76
