**Welcome to JSS3!**

*We are eager to have you join us in class!!*

*In today’s class, We will be discussing Whole Numbers. We hope you enjoy the class!*

**NUMBER BASE CONVERSIONS**

People count in twos, fives, twenties etc. Also, the days of the week can be counted in 24 hours. Generally, people count in tens. The digits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are used to represent numbers. The place value of the digits is shown in the number example: 395:- 3 Hundred, 9 Tens and 5 Units. i.e. 3X10^{2} + 9 X 10^{1} +5 X 10^{0}.

Since the above number is based on the powers of tens it is called the base ten number system i.e. 300 + 90 + 5

Also 4075 = 4 Thousand 0 Hundred 7 Tens 5 Units i.e. 4 x 10^{3} + 0 X 10^{2} + 7 X 10^{1 }+ 5 X 10^{0} Other Number systems are sometimes used.

For Example: The base 8 system is based on the power of 8. For example: Expand 647_{8}, 26523_{7}, 1011012,

(a) 647_{8} = 6 x 8^{2} + 4 x 8^{1} + 7 X 8^{0} =6 x 64 + 4 x 8 + 7 x 1

(b) 26523_{7} =2 x 7^{4 }+ 6 x7^{3} + 5 x 7^{2} + 2x 7^{1} + 3 x 7^{0}

(c) 101101_{2}= 1 x 2^{5} + 0 x 2^{4} + 1 x 2^{3} + 1 x 2^{2} + 0 x2^{1} + 1 x 2^{0}

**SELF EVALUATION**

Expand The Following

- 434
_{3} - 101111
_{2}

**CONVERSION TO DENARY SCALE (BASE TEN)**

When converting from other bases to base ten the number must be raised to the base and added.

**Worked Examples:**

Convert the following to base 10

(a) 17_{8}

(b) 11011_{2}

Solutions:

(a) 17_{8} = 1 X 8^{1} + 7 X 8^{0} = 1 X 8 + 7 X 1 = 8 + 7 = 15

(b) 11011_{2} = 1 X 2^{4} + 1 X 2^{3} + 0 X 2^{2} + 1 X 2^{1} + 1 X 2^{0} = 1 X 16 + 1 X 8 + 0 X 4 + 1 X 2 + 1 X 1

= 16 + 8 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 27

**SELF EVALUATION**

Convert The Following To Base Ten:

(a) 10100_{2}

(b) 2120_{3}

**CONVERSION FROM BASE TEN TO OTHER BASES**

To change a number from base ten to another base

- Divide the base ten number by the new base number.
- Continue dividing until zero is reached
- Write down the remainder each time
- Start at the last remainder and read upwards to get the answer.

Worked Examples:

- Convert 68
_{10}to base 6 - Covert 129
_{10 }to base 2

Solutions:

$1.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}6|68\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}6|11R2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}6|1R5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}0|1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}={152}_{6}$

$2.\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|129\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|64R1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|32R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|16R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|8R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|4R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|2R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|1R0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}2|0R1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}={10000001}_{2}$

**SELF EVALUATION**

- Convert 569
_{10}to base 8 - Convert 100
_{10}to base 2

**GENERAL SELF EVALUATION**

Convert the following to base seven

- 405
_{10} - 876
_{10}

Evaluate the following

- 5 – 3 + 4

Funmi AfolarinThank you good class

oludareolagunjui loved it and i gained a lot

ndububagiftthank you alot

sofiat Afolarinthanks such a good class

blessingremegius2Pls y is it dat in something like 7 × 8°it is =7×1

Adegoke ayobamiBecause anything raise to power of zero is 1

Class TutorCorrect

gidadoabdulbasit8^0 =1. Hence, according to the law of indices anything raised to the power of 0 is = 1.

TitilayoAny number raise to power 0 is always 1

Class TutorCorrect

AngelThanks A Lot

gidadoabdulbasit8^0 =1. Hence, according to the law of indices anything raised to the power of 0 is = 1.

Lohor KarenI do not understand the method that was used in converting the base 10 numbers to other bases

Davina 🥰😁😆🤑Read it again

Davina 🥰😁😆🤑thanks alot

sosothanks nice class
