# Rules for Upper and Lower Bounds

You may encoun­ter ques­ti­ons with for­mu­las, and you must work with mul­ti­pli­ca­ti­on, divi­si­on, addi­ti­on and sub­trac­tion. In such cases, you need to fol­low cer­tain rules to get the right ans­wers. The length of a rope x is 33.7 cm. The length should be incre­a­sed by 15.5 cm. Given the limi­ta­ti­ons, what will be the new length of the rope? To find the upper and lower limit, we add and sub­tract 0.5 from 93 cm. The­se upper and lower limits of length and width can then be used to find the upper and lower limits of the peri­me­ter and area of the rect­ang­le. When you add or mul­ti­ply – group the appro­pria­te limits, when sub­trac­ting or divi­ding – you group oppo­si­te limits. Your rule should the­re­fo­re check if you assu­me a power of \$10. If so, the amount to be sub­trac­ted for the lower limit is one-tenth of the amount to be added for the upper limit Step 3: The ques­ti­on says that the ans­wer must be obtai­ned in 2 deci­mal pla­ces. The­re­fo­re, the upper limit is: Step 2: We use for­mu­las to find upper and lower limits for addi­ti­on. Upper limit = 2.447 hours (3 D.P.), lower limit = 2.410 hours (3 D.P.).

When roun­ded values are used for cal­cu­la­ti­ons, we can find the upper and lower bounds of the cal­cu­la­ti­on results. For the remai­ning upper limit of money, we sub­tract the lower limit of S from the upper limit of P. The fol­lowing steps can be used to find upper and lower limits. First, find the upper and lower limit of 7.3 – 4.5 The­re­fo­re, the upper limit of the amount of rope remai­ning is 155 cm — 49.5 cm = 105.5 cm The lower limit is the smal­lest value that would round to the esti­ma­te. A car tra­vels 620 kilo­me­ters in 8.4 hours. Both values have been roun­ded to 2 signi­fi­cant digits. Find the upper and lower limits of the average speed of the car, give your values to 2 deci­mal pla­ces. To find the lower speed limit, we must start with the lower distance limit and divi­de by the upper time limit.

Inde­ed, if you share a lar­ger num­ber, you have a smal­ler ans­wer. The ques­ti­on we should ask our­sel­ves is how accu­rate­ly the upper and lower limits are roun­ded to the same num­ber. This will be the new length. The lowest num­ber that can be roun­ded to 33.7 is 33.65, which means that 33.65 is the lower bound, LBva­lue. Step 1: We will first find the upper and lower limits of the num­bers invol­ved. Simi­lar­ly, a func­tion g defi­ned on the domain D and having the same codo­main (K, ≤) is an upper bound of f if g(x) f(x) ≥ for each x in D. The func­tion g is cal­led the upper limit of a set of func­tions if it is an upper limit of each func­tion in that set. The length L of a rect­ang­le is 5.74 cm and the width B is 3.3 cm. What is the upper limit of the area of the rect­ang­le to 2 deci­mal pla­ces? A par­al­le­lo­gram has a base b of 5.64 m to 2 deci­mal pla­ces and a ver­ti­cal height h of 2.3 m to 2 signi­fi­cant digits. Find the upper and lower limits of sur­face A of the par­al­le­lo­gram. To find the lower limit of the remai­ning pie­ce of wood, we must start with the lower limit of the board and sub­tract the upper limit from the cut sec­tion. This makes the ans­wer as small as possible.

For examp­le, a mass of 70 kg, roun­ded to the nea­rest 10 kg, has a lower limit of 65 kg, sin­ce 65 kg is the smal­lest mass roun­ded to 70 kg. The upper limit is 75 kg, as 75 kg is the smal­lest mass that would round up to 80 kg. 3 Add this amount to the spe­ci­fied value to find the upper limit, sub­tract this amount from the spe­ci­fied value to find the lower limit. To find the upper bound of x/y, divi­de the upper bound of x (nume­ra­tor) by the lower bound of x (deno­mi­na­tor). To find the lower bound of x/y, divi­de the lower bound of x (nume­ra­tor) by the upper bound of y (deno­mi­na­tor). The set S = {42} has 42 as upper and lower limits; all other num­bers are eit­her an upper or lower bound for this S. To find the upper bound of the pro­duct (or the sum) of any two num­bers, mul­ti­ply (or add up) the upper bounds of the two num­bers. Step 3: Now we need to deci­de what the new length will look like based on the upper and lower limits that have just been cal­cu­la­ted. 3. Deci­de on an appro­pria­te level of pre­cisi­on for your ans­wer, taking into account the limitations.

The lower and upper limits can also be cal­led pre­cisi­on limits. Mul­ti­ply­ing the lower limits, we find the lower limit of the sur­face. By mul­ti­ply­ing the upper limits, we find the upper limit of the sur­face. Step 2: This is divi­si­on. We will the­re­fo­re use the divi­si­on for­mu­la to cal­cu­la­te the upper and lower limits. Cal­cu­la­te the upper and lower limits for the fol­lowing mea­su­re­ments. For a func­tion f with domain D and a pre­vious set (K, ≤) as a codo­main, an ele­ment y of K is an upper bound of f if y f (x) ≥ for each x in D. The upper bound is cal­led abrupt­ly when the equa­li­ty app­lies to at least one value of x. This indi­ca­tes that the cons­traint is opti­mal and the­re­fo­re can­not be fur­ther redu­ced without inva­li­da­ting the ine­qua­li­ty. The upper limit is 54 becau­se it is the hig­hest num­ber that can be roun­ded to 50.

1. Find the upper and lower limits of the ori­gi­nal UBva­lue and UBran­ge incre­ment ran­ge. We use ≤ for the lower limit becau­se 4.25 would round to 4.3, but we have to use < for the upper limit becau­se 4.35 would round to 4.4, not 4.3. Upper limit = 17.85 cm^2 , lower limit = 12.35 cm^2 To use the upper and lower limits in the cal­cu­la­ti­ons: The lower limit of the cal­cu­la­ti­on is obtai­ned, sub­trac­ting the upper limit of 4.5 from the lower limit of 7.3. Assuming that a map mea­su­res 5 cm in terms of width and mea­su­red to the nea­rest cen­ti­met­re, the lower limit would be 4.5 cm and the upper limit 5.5 cm. Both bounda­ries are 2000, so the den­si­ty of the rock is 2000 kg/m3. For examp­le, you would have a simi­lar pro­blem with \$0.0100 as three signi­fi­cant num­bers: The limits would be \$0.01005 and \$0.009995 ins­tead of \$0.00995 (find the extra \$9) The degree of pre­cisi­on is unity. We can divi­de this place value by two; Add the mea­su­re given for the upper limit and sub­tract from the mea­su­re spe­ci­fied for the lower limit.

Note: Dif­fe­rent levels of pre­cisi­on may be spe­ci­fied in exam ques­ti­ons, so be care­ful when working on upper and lower limit cal­cu­la­ti­ons. The lower bound of the cal­cu­la­ti­on is obtai­ned by mul­ti­ply­ing the two lower bounds tog­e­ther. The­re­fo­re, the mini­mum pro­duct is 60.5 × 42.5 = 2571.25 To add up, group the appro­pria­te limits. It is very com­mon for a cus­to­mer and a sel­ler to nego­tia­te the pri­ce to pay for an item. No mat­ter how good the customer‘s nego­tia­ti­on skills are, the sel­ler would not sell the item below a cer­tain amount. You can call this par­ti­cu­lar amount the lower limit. The cus­to­mer also has an amount in mind and is not wil­ling to pay bey­ond that. You can call this amount the upper limit.

An upper bound u of a sub­set S of a pre­set (K, ≤) is cal­led an exact upper bound for S if every ele­ment of K strict­ly incre­a­sed by u is also incre­a­sed by an ele­ment of S.  For examp­le, 5 is a lower bound for the set S = {5, 8, 42, 34, 13934} (as a sub­set of inte­gers or real num­bers, etc.), as well as 4. On the other hand, 6 is not a lower bound for S becau­se it is no smal­ler than any ele­ment of S. A num­ber was given as 38.6 to 3 signi­fi­cant num­bers. Look for the upper and lower limits of the num­ber. To find out the error inter­val, you must first find the upper and lower limits. Let‘s use the steps we men­tio­ned ear­lier to get that. To find the upper bound of x – y, sub­tract the lower bound of y from the upper bound of x.

To find the lower limit of x – y, sub­tract the upper limit of y from the lower bound of x. Taking into account the limi­ta­ti­ons, you‘ll find the time it takes Dean to com­ple­te his jour­ney with a rea­son­ab­le level of accu­ra­cy. The same con­cept is app­lied in mathe­ma­tics. The­re is a limit at which a mea­su­re or value can­not go bey­ond that. In this arti­cle, we will learn more about lower and upper limits of pre­cisi­on, their defi­ni­ti­on, rules and for­mu­las, and see examp­les of their app­li­ca­ti­ons. The con­cept of lower bound for (sets of) func­tions is defi­ned ana­lo­gous by repla­cing ≥ with ≤. Let‘s look at the length: the smal­lest num­ber roun­ded to 6.4 is 6.35, this is the lower limit. The lar­gest num­ber, roun­ded to 6.4, is 6.44999. So we say that 6.45 is the upper limit. In mathe­ma­tics, espe­cial­ly in order theo­ry, an upper or major bound of a sub­set S of an advan­ced set (K, ≤) is an ele­ment of K grea­ter than or equal to any ele­ment of S.   The dual is a lower bound or mino­ri­ty of S defi­ned as an ele­ment of K less than or equal to any ele­ment of S. A set with an upper (or lower) limit is cal­led boun­ded or incre­a­sed from above (or boun­ded from below) by this limit.

The boun­ded terms abo­ve (boun­ded below) are also used in the mathe­ma­ti­cal lite­ra­tu­re for sets that have upper (or lower) bounds.  Each sub­set of natu­ral num­bers has a lower bound, sin­ce the natu­ral num­bers have the smal­lest ele­ment (0 or 1, depen­ding on the convention).
