1. 1. Pharmaceutics Lecture 2002 - Date Computing and pharmaceutical numeracy Dr. L.T.M. Muungo, PhD
2. 2. Review of Mathematical Concepts for Pharmaceutics ▪Proper, Improper Fractions & Mixed Numbers ▪To add or Subtract Fractions ▪Multiplication of Fractions ▪Decimals
3. 3. 1. Proper, Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers ➢Proper fraction: numerator is less than denominator; value is less than 1. Example: 1/2 ➢Improper fraction: numerator is greater than denominator; value is greater than 1. Example: 4/3. ➢Or numerator denominator; value 1. Example: 5/5 ➢Mixed number: whole number a fraction; value is greater than 1. Example: 1(1/2) ➢Complex fraction: numerator and/or denominator are composed of a fraction, decimal, or mixed number; value is less than, greater than, or = 1. Example: (1/2) / (1/50) ➢Any nonzero number divided by itself 1. Example: (3/3) = 1 ➢To reduce a fraction to lowest terms, divide both terms by the largest nonzero whole number that will divide both the numerator and denominator evenly. Value remains the same. Example: 1/6 = (6/2) / (10/2) = 3/5
4. 4. ➢To enlarge a fraction, multiply both terms by the same nonzero number. Value remains the same. Example: 1/12 = (1x2) / (12x2) = 2/24 ➢To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator; use original denominator in the fractional part. Example: 1(1/3) = 4/3 ➢To convert an improper fraction to a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator. ➢Express any remainder as a proper fraction reduced to lowest terms. Example: 21/9 = 2(3/9) = 2(1/3) ➢When numerators are equal, the fraction with the smaller denominator is greater. Example: 1/2 is greater than 1/3 ➢When denominators are equal, the fraction with the larger numerator is greater. Example: 2/3 is greater than 1/3 2. To add or subtract fractions: ➢ Convert to equivalent fractions with least common denominators. ➢ Add or subtract the numerators; place that value in the numerator. ➢Use the least common denominator as the denominator. ➢ Convert the answer to a mixed number and/or reduce to lowest terms.
5. 5. 3. Multiplication of Fractions ➢When multiplying a fraction by a nonzero whole number, the same rule applies as for multiplying fractions. ➢First convert the whole number to a fraction with a denominator of 1; the value of the ➢number remains the same. Example (2/3) x (4/1) ➢To multiply mixed numbers, first convert them to improper fractions, and then multiply. Example 31/2 x 41/3 = 7/2 x 13/3 ➢To divide mixed numbers, first convert them to improper fractions. Example[1(1/2)] / (3/4) = (3/2) / (3/4) = (3/2) x (4/3) = (1/1) x (2/1) = 2 ➢To multiply fractions, cancel terms, multiply numerators, and multiply denominators. ➢ To divide fractions, invert the divisor, cancel terms, and multiply. ➢ Convert results to a mixed number and/or reduce to lowest terms.
6. 6. 4. Decimals ➢In a decimal number, whole number values are to the left of the decimal point, and fractional values are to the right. ➢Zeros added to a decimal fraction before the decimal point of a decimal number less than 1 or at the end of the decimal fraction do not change the value. Example: .5 = 0.5 = 0.50. However, using the leading zero is the only acceptable notation (such as, 0.5). ➢In a decimal number, zeros added before or after the decimal point may change the value. Example: 1.5 ≠ 1.05 and 1.5 ≠ 10.5. ➢To avoid overlooking the decimal point in a decimal fraction, always place a zero to the left of the decimal point. Example: .5 ← Avoid writing a decimal fraction this way; it could be mistaken for the whole number 5. Example: 0.5 ←. This is the required method of writing a decimal fraction with a value less than 1 ➢The number of places in a decimal fraction indicates the power of 10. Examples: 0.5 = five tenths 0.05 = five hundredths 0.005 = five thousandths
7. 7. Compare decimals by aligning decimal points and adding zeros. Example: Compare 0.5, 0.05, and 0.005. 0.500 = five hundred thousandths (greatest) 0.050 = fifty thousandths 0.005 = five thousandths (least) To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator by the denominator. To convert a decimal to a fraction, express the decimal number as a whole number in the numerator and the denominator as the correct power of 10. Reduce the fraction to lowest terms. Example: 0.04 = 4 (numerator is a whole number) 100 (denominator is 1 followed by two zeros) = 4/100 = 1/25
8. 8. To multiply decimals, place the decimal point in the product to the left as many decimal places as there are in the two decimals multiplied. Example: 0.25 x 0.2 = 0.050 = 0.05 (Zeros at the end of the decimal are unnecessary). To divide decimals, move the decimal point in the divisor and dividend the number of decimal places that will make the divisor a whole number and align it in the quotient. Example: 24 / 1.2 To multiply or divide decimals by a power of 10, move the decimal point to the right (to multiply) or to the left (to divide) the number of decimal places as there are zeros in the power of 10. Examples: 5.06 x10 = 5.0.6 = 50.6 2.1 /100 = .02.1 = 0.021 When rounding decimals, add 1 to the place value considered if the next decimal place is 5 or greater. Examples: Rounded to hundredths: 3.054 = 3.05; 0.566 = 0.57. Rounded to tenths: 3.05 = 3.1; 0.54 = 0.5
