### WHOLE NUMBERS

**EXERCISE 2.1**

**Problem 1**

*1. Write the next three natural numbers after 10999*.

**Solution** :

10,999

10,999 + 1=11,000

11,000 +1 = 11,001

11,001 + 1 = 11,002

Therefore, the next three natural numbers after 10,999 are 11,000, 11,001, 11,002

**Problem 2**

*2. Write the three whole numbers occurring just before 10001.*

**Solution** :

10.001

10,001 – 1 = 10,000

10,000 – 1 =9,999

9,999 – 1 = 9,998

Therefor, the three whole numbers occurring just before are 10,000, 9,999, 9,998.

**Problem 5**

*5. A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 liters of petrol on Monday. The next day , he filled the tank with 50 liters of the petrol costs Rs. 44 per liters, how many did he spend in all on petrol?*

**Solution** :

The petrol filled on Monday = 40 liters

The petrol filled on the next day = 50 liters

The total petrol filled on both the day = 40 + 50 = 90 liters

The cost petrol for 1 liter = Rs. 44

The cost of petrol for 90 liters = 44 × Rs.90 = Rs.3960

Therefore,the taxi driver spent Rs.3960 on petrol.

**Problem 6**

*6. A vendor supplies 32 liters of milk to a hotel in the morning and 68 liters of milk in the evening. If the milk costs Rs 15 per liter,how much money is due to the vendor per day ?*

**Solution :**

The supply of milk in morning to a hotel = 32 liters

The supply of milk in evening to the hotel = 68 liters

The total supply of milk per day = 32 + 68 = 100 liters

The cost of milk for 1 litre = Rs.15

The cost of milk for 100 litres = 15 × 100 = Rs.1500

Therefore, Rs.1500 is due to the vendor per day.

**Problem 7**

*7. Match the following :*

*i. 425 × 136 = 425 × ( 6+ 30 + 100 )*

**EXERCISE 2.3**

**Problem 1**

*1. Which of the following will not represent zero:*

*a. 1 + 0 *

*b. 0 × 0*

*c. 0/2 *

*d. 10 × 0/2*

**Solution :**

a.( 1 + 0 = 1 )

**Problem 2**

*2. If the product of two whole numbers is zero, can we say that one or both of them will be zero ? Justify through example.*

**Solution :**

Yes.

If we multiply any number with zero, the product will be zero.

Example : 1 × 0 = 0, 3 × 0 = 0

If both numbers are zero, the product also be zero. Example : 0 × 0 = 0

**Problem 3**

*3. If the product of two whole numbers is 1, can we say that one or both of them will be 1 ? justify through examples.*

**Solution :**

If we multiply any number with 1 the product can not be 1.

Example : 3 × 1 = 3, 5 × 1 = 5

If both numbers are 1, then the product is 1. Example : 1 × 1 = 1

**Solutions :**

a. 728 × 101

= 728 × ( 100 + 1 )

= 728 × 100 + 728 × 1

= 72,800 + 728 = 73,528

b. 5437 × 1001

= 5437 × ( 1000 + 1 )

= 5437 × 1000 + 5437 × 1

= 54,37,000 + 5437 = 54,42,437

c. 824 × 25

= 824 × 25 × 4/4

= 824 × 100 /4

= 82400/4 = 20,600

d. 4275 × 125

= 4275 × 125 × 8/8

= 4275 × 1000/8

= 42,75,000/8 = 5,34,375

e. 504 × 35

= 504 × 35 × 2/2

= 504 × 70 / 2

*1 × 8 + 1 = 9*

*12 × 8 +2 = 98*

*123 × 8 +3 = 987*

*1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876*

*12345 × 8 +5 = 98765*

*Write the two new steps. Can you say the pattern works ?*

*( Hint : 12345 = 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1 )*.

**Solution :**

1 × 8 + 1 = 9

12 × 8 +2 = 98

123 × 8 +3 = 987

1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876

12345 × 8 +5 = 98765

123456 × 8 +6 = 987654

1234567 × 8 + 7 = 9876543
