**Very Short/Short Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

Find the HCF of 96 and 404 by (RBSESolutions.com) prime factorisation method. [Raj. 2015]

Solution

96 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

404 = 2 x 2 x 101

Common prime factor

H.C.F. = 2 x 2 = 4.

Question 2.

Find the HCF of numbers 44 and 99 [Raj. 2013]

Solution

44 = 2 x 2 x 11= 2^{2} x 11

and 99 = 3 x 3 x 11 = 3^{2} x 11

Now product of prime factors of both numbers = 11

(H.C.F.) = 11.

Question 3.

Is the HCF of two numbers 15 and LCM 175 possible? Give reason. **[CBSE 2012]**

Solution

We know that LCM divides by HCF.

But LCM 175 does not divide by HCF 15.

Hence, HCF and LCM of two numbers can not 15 and 175 respectively

Question 4.

Whether the decimal expansion of (RBSESolutions.com) number \(\frac { 3 }{ 625 }\) is terminating or non-terminating 625 repeating? write it in decimal form? **[Raj. 2014]**

Solution

Question 5.

In a school, there are two sections- (RBSESolutions.com) section A and section B of class X. There are 48 students in section A and 60 students in section B. Determine the minimum number of books required for their class library so that they can be distributed equally among students of each section. **(CBSE 2012)**

Solution

Number of students in section A = 48

Number of students in section B = 60

Minimum number of books in library = LCM of 48 and 60

So LCM of 48, 60 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 240

So, number of required books = 240.

Question 6.

Prove that 3 – √5 is an irrational number? **(CBSE 2012)**

Solution

Let 3 – √5 is a rational number, (RBSESolutions.com) we find out such integers numbers a and b (b ≠ 0)

a and b are integer numbers So, \(\frac { 3b-a }{ b }\) is a rational number.

So, √5 be also a rational number

But this fact is contradicted that √5 is an irrational number.

So our hypothesis is wrong.

3 – √5 is an irrational number.

Hence proved.

Question 7.

Prove that 7 – √5 is an irrational (RBSESolutions.com) number.

Solution

Let 7 – √5 is a rational number.

7 + √5 = \(\frac { a }{ b }\), b ≠ 0 …(i)

Where a and b co-prime integer number.

Equation (i) can be written as

√5 = \(\frac { a }{ b }\) – 7

or √5 = \(\frac { a-7b }{ b }\) ….(ii)

Since, a and b are integers. So \(\frac { a-7b }{ b }\) will be rational number, so from equation (ii) we find that √5 is a rational number. But we know that √5 is a irrational number.

So this result is contradicted.

So our hypothesis is wrong.

Hence 7 + √5 is a rational number.

Hence proved.

Question 8.

Find the HCF and LCM of two (RBSESolutions.com) numbers 3364 and 54.

Solution

Number 3364 and 54 By prime factorization of 3364 and 54.

3364 = 2 x 2 x 29 x 29 = 2^{2} x 29^{2}

and 54 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 3^{3}

For HCF, taking maximum power of common factor.

H.C.F. = 2

For LCM, taking maximum power of common factor.

L.C.M. = 2^{2} x 3^{3} x 29^{2} = 4 x 27 x 841 = 90,828

**Long Answer Type Questions**

Question 1.

Prove that only one out of three (RBSESolutions.com) consecutive positive integers is divisible. **(NCERT Exemplar Problem)**

Solution

Let three consecutive positive integers are n, n + 1, n + 2 respectively.

We know that n is of the form 3q or 3q + 1 or 3 q + 2.

Now following cases are possible.

**Case 1.**

when n = 3q which is divisible by 3

n + 1 = 3q + 1, Not divisible by 3

n + 2 = 3q + 2, Not divisible by 3

In this case n is divisible by 3 but (n + 1) and (n + 2) are not divisible by 3

**Case 2.**

When n = 3q + 1

In this positive Which is divisible by 3 but n and n + 1 are not divisible by 3.

**Case 3.**

When n = 3q + 2

In this position divisible by 3 but or (n + 2) are not divisible by 3

Hence out of n, (n + 1) and (n + 2) one is divisible by 3.

Hence proved.

Question 2.

Show that cube of any positive (RBSESolutions.com) integer is either of the form 4m, 4m + 1 or 4m + 3 for some integer m. **(NCERT Exemplar Problem)**

Solution

Let x is a positive integer.

Applying Euclid division lemma it is in the form of 4q or 4q + 1 or 4q + 1 or 4q + 2 or 4q + 3.

Now following cases are

where m = 16q^{3} + 36q^{2} + 27q + 6

Hence cube of any positive integer is either (RBSESolutions.com) of the form 4m, 4m + 1, or 4m + 3 for some integer.

Hence proved.

Question 3.

Find the LCM and HCF of the given pair of integers and check product of two numbers = H.C.F x L. C.M

(i) 26 and 91,

(ii) 510 and 92,

Solution

(i) Given numbers are 26 and 91

Product of factors of common (RBSESolutions.com) primes (in minimum powers) 26 and 91 = (13)^{1} = 13

The product of all prime factors of 26 and 91 in maximum powers.

Hence, (H.CF.) = 13

and (L.C.M.) = 182

Product of both numbers = 26 x 91 = 2366

and H.C.F. x L.C.M. = 13 x 182 = 2366

Now product of both number = H.C.F. x L.C.M.

(ii) Given numbers are 510 and 92

510 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 17 = (2) x (3) x (5) x (17)

Product of common prime (RBSESolutions.com) factors of 92 and 510 = (2)^{1} = 2.

So, H.C.F. = 2

Product of both numbers = (2)^{2} x (3) x (5) x (17) x (23) = 23460

So, L.C.M. = 23460

Product of both numbers = 92 x 510 = 46920

and H.C.F. x L.C.M. = 2 x 23460 = 46920

So, product of both number = H.C.F. x L.C.M.
