Arithmetical Operations – Rational Numbers Rational numbers are numbers which can be represented in the form of p/q, where p and q are any two integers and q is not equal to zero(q ≠ 0). A rational number p/q is said to be in its standard form if p and q do not have any […]

Associative Property of Rational Numbers Associative Property Associative property of rational numbers states that when three or more rational numbers are added or multiplied the result remains same irrespective of how they are grouped. However, in the case of subtraction and division if the order of the numbers is changed then result will also change. […]

Commutative Property of Rational Numbers Commutative Property The commutative property of rational numbers states that when any two rational numbers are added or multiplied in any order the result we get same result. In case of subtraction and division, if order of numbers is change the result will also change. We will understand these properties […]

Closure Property of Rational Numbers What are Rational Numbers? Rational numbers are numbers which can be represented in the form of p/q, where p and q are any two integers and q is not equal to zero(q ≠ 0). Closure Property of Rational Numbers When we perform any operation on a rational number, such that […]

Properties of Rational Numbers Rational numbers Rational numbers are numbers which can be represented in the form of p/q, where p and q are any two integers and q is not equal to zero(q ≠ 0). Denominator and Numerator of a Rational Number In a rational number p/q, the integer p is the numerator and […]

Subtraction of Like Fractions Arithmetic operations addition, subtraction, multiplication and division can be preformed on fractions. Fractions represents a part of a whole. The normal subtraction of numbers and the subtraction of fractions are different. A fraction has a numerator and a denominator which is separated by a bar. For example, 3/2, 4/7, 22/5, 26/7, […]

Fractions – Division Division or divide is a method of sharing or grouping a number or things into equal parts. In this tutorial we will learn division of fractions. Multiplication and division of fractions is almost same. A fraction has 2 parts numerator and denominator. In division of fractions we multiply first fraction by reciprocal […]
