For example, positive a real number 0.4 is multiplied by a negative real number 0.1, the result is negative just like multiplying positive and negative integers. 

Below are worked examples on the operations on real numbers. I made the examples easy so that you can recognize the pattern even if you forgot the rules on operating with decimals and fractions. Do not worry though if you have forgotten the rules because I will have separate posts about them. For now, try to solve and by compare your answer with the calculated results below. Continue Reading
