Activity: to solve in context problems that concern economic issues [lo 1.6]

1. Cash register slips are part of our lives. Wherever we buy and pay, we receive them. Let us take a closer look at a couple of them!

Your educator will provide you with the necessary paper.

Divide into groups of three. Collect at least three till slips from various shops in your area (you may collect more!) and compare them in terms of the following:


Lay-out: Where is the name of the shop written?

Is there an address? Where is it written?

Is there a telephone number? Where is it written?

Is there a fax number? Where is it written?

1.2 What, in addition to the above, is also indicated on the till slip?

1.3 Are there any similarities between the various till slips? If yes, what?

1.4 Are there any differences between the various till slips? If yes, what?

1.5 Which till slip is "best" according to you? Motivate your answer.

1 2 3 4
Co-operation with others Does not co-operate effectively Co-operates, but has to be prompted frequently Co-operates, but does not listen to opinions expressed by group members Co-operates beautifully and listens to suggestions made by group members
Tidiness and organisation Work is untidy and disorganised Organised, but difficult to read Neat and organised, easily legible Neat, clearly laid out work; easily legible
Completeness Fewer than 3 till slips. Not all questions answered A lot of information omitted Only a few questions were not answered Assignment executed completely


Can you solve the following letter sum?


+ T A K


Each letter represents a different digit from 1 to 9. Find values for A, K, O, P and T.

(There are 13 possible solutions!)


1. Complete:

1.1 1 493 + 1 268 = 1 268 + ________________________

1.2 (318 + 469) + 1 426 = 318 + (_________ + _________)

= ________________________ (3)

2. Add the numbers in each bubble.

2.1 2.2


3. Complete:


4. Estimate the sum of the following by rounding off to the nearest 100:

4.1 7 684 + 6 207 ________________________

4.2 15 216 + 13 899 ________________________ (2)

5. Use any method of your choice and calculate the sum of:

5.1 38 962 + 56 149










6. Dad pays R899,95 for water and electricity; R438,27 for the telephone and R1 878,50 for groceries. What is the total amount Dad must pay?










7. Use the memory of your pocket calculator and calculate:

(48 632 ÷ 14 916) + (23 684 + 56 193)












Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.

Assessment Standard 1.6: We know this when the learner solves problems in context including contexts that may be used to build awareness of other Learning Areas, as well as human rights, social, economic and environmental issues such as:

1.6.1 financial (including buying and selling, profit and loss, and simple budgets).

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
