###### Exercise 1.1

**Question 1.**

Use Euclid’s division algorithm to find the HCF of

900 and 270

**Answer:**

Euclid’s Division is a method for finding the HCF (highest common factor) of two given integers. According to Euclid’s Division Algorithm, For any two positive integers, ‘a’ and ‘b’, there exists a unique pair of integers ‘q’ and ‘r’ which satisfy the relation:

a = bq + r , 0 ≤ r ≤ b

Given integers 900 and 270. Clearly 900>270.

By applying division lemma

⇒ 900 = 270×3 + 90

Since remainder 0, applying division lemma on 270 and 90

⇒ 270 = 90×3 + 0

∵ remainder = 0,

∴ the HCF of 900 and 270 is 90.

**Question 2.**

Use Euclid’s division algorithm to find the HCF of

196 and 38220

**Answer:**

Euclid’s Division is a method for finding the HCF (highest common factor) of two given integers. According to Euclid’s Division Algorithm, For any two positive integers, ‘a’ and ‘b’, there exists a unique pair of integers ‘q’ and ‘r’ which satisfy the relation:

a = bq + r , 0 ≤ r ≤ b

Given integers 196 and 38220. Clearly 38220>196.

By applying division lemma

⇒ 38220 = 196×195 + 0

Since remainder 0

∴ the HCF of 196 and 38220 is 195.

**Question 3.**

Use Euclid’s division algorithm to find the HCF of

1651 and 2032

**Answer:**

Euclid’s Division is a method for finding the HCF (highest common factor) of two given integers. According to Euclid’s Division Algorithm, For any two positive integers, ‘a’ and ‘b’, there exists a unique pair of integers ‘q’ and ‘r’ which satisfy the relation:

a = bq + r , 0 ≤ r ≤ b

Given integers 1651 and 2032. Clearly 2032>1651.

By applying division lemma

⇒ 2032 = 1651×1 + 381

Since remainder 0, applying division lemma on 1651 and 381

⇒ 1651 = 381×4 + 127

Since remainder 0, applying division lemma on 381 and 127

⇒ 381 = 127×3 + 0

Since remainder = 0,

∴ the HCF of 1651 and 2032 is 127.

**Question 4.**

Use Euclid division lemma to show that any positive odd integer is of form 6q + 1, or 6q + 3 or 6q + 5, where q is some integers.

**Answer:**

Let a be any odd positive integer and b = 6

Then using Euclid’s algorithm, we get a = 6q + r here r is remainder and value of q is more than or equal to 0 and r = 0,1,2,3,4,5because 0≤r<band the value of b is 6

So total form available will be 6q, 6q + 1, 6q + 2, 6q + 3, 6q + 4, 6q + 5 ,6q + 6 is divisible by 2, so it is an even number.

6q + 1, 6 is divisible by 2 but 1 is not divisible by 2, so it is an odd number.

6q + 2 , 6 is divisible by 2 but 2 is also divisible by 2, so it is an even number.

6q + 3, 6 is divisible by 2 but 3 is not divisible by 2, so it is an odd number.

6q + 4, 6 is divisible by 2 but 4 is also divisible by 2, so it is an even number.

6q + 5, 6 is divisible by 2 but 5 is not divisible by 2, so it is an odd number.

∴ so odd numbers will in form of 6q + 1 or 6q + 3 or 6q + 5

**Question 5.**

Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the square of any positive integer is of the form 3p, 3p + 1 or 3p + 2.

**Answer:**

Let be any positive integer. Then, it is form 3q or, 3q + 1 or, 3q + 2

So, we have the following cases:

__Case I When a = 3q__

In this case, we have

a^{2} = (3q)^{2} = 9q^{2} = 3q(3q) = 3p, where p = 3q^{2}

__Case II When a = 3q + 1__

In this case, we have

a^{2} = (3q + 1)^{2} = 9q^{2} + 6q + 1 = 3q(3q + 2) + 1 = 3p + 1,

where p = q(3q + 2)

__Case III When a = 3q + 2__

In this case, we have

a^{2} = (3q + 2)^{2} = 9q^{2} + 12q + 4 = 9q^{2} + 12q + 3 + 1

= 3(3q^{2} + 4q + 1) + 1 = 3p + 1

where p = 3q^{2} + 4^{2} + 1

Hence, a is the form of 3p or 3p + 1 or 3p + 2

**Question 6.**

Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the cube of any positive integer is of the form 9m, 9m + 1 or 9m + 8.

**Answer:**

Let a be any positive integer. Then, it is of the form 3q or, 3q + 1 or, 3q + 2.

We know that according to Euclid's division lemma:

a = bq + r

So, we have the following cases:

__Case I When a = 3q__

In this case, we have

a^{3} = (3q)^{3} = 27q^{3} = 9(3q^{3} ) = 9m, where m = 3q^{3}

__Case II When a = 3q + 1__

In this case, we have

a^{3} = (3q + 1)^{3}

⇒ 27q^{3} + 27q^{2} + 9q + 1

⇒9q(3q^{2} + 3q + 1) + 1

⇒ a^{3} = 9m + 1, where m = q(3q^{2} + 3q + 1)

__Case III When a = 3q + 2__

In this case, we have

a^{3} = (3q + 1)^{3}

⇒ 27q^{3} + 54q^{2} + 36q + 8

⇒9q(3q^{2} + 6q + 4) + 8

⇒ a^{3} = 9m + 8, where m = q(3q^{2} + 6q + 4)

Hence, a^{3} is the form of 9m or, 9m + 1 or, 9m + 8

**Question 7.**

Show that one and only one out of n, n + 2 or n + 4is divisible by 3, where n is any positive integer.

**Answer:**

We know that any positive integer is of the form 3q or, 3q + 1 or,

3q + 2 for some integer and one and only one of these possibilities can occur.

So, we have following cases:

__Case I When n = 3q__

In this case, we have

n = 3q, which is divisible by 3

Now,

⇒ n + 2 = 3q + 2,

⇒ n + 2 leaves remainder 2 when divided by 3

⇒ n + 2 is not divisible by 3

Again, n = 3q

⇒ n + 4 = 3q + 4 = 3(q + 1) + 1

⇒ n + 4leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3

⇒ n + 4 is not divisible by 3

Thus, n is divisible by 3 but n + 2 and n + 4 are not divisible by 3.

__Case II When n = 3q + 1__

In this case, we have

n = 3q + 1

⇒ n leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3

⇒ n is not divisible by 3

Now, n = 3q + 1

⇒ n + 2 = (3q + 1) + 2 = 3(q + 1),

⇒ n + 2 is divisible by 3

Again, n = 3q + 1

⇒ n + 4 = (3q + 1) + 4 = 3q + 5 = 3(q + 1) + 2

⇒ n + 4 leaves remainder 2 when divided by 3

⇒ n + 4 is not divisible by 3

Thus, n + 2 is divisible by 3 but n and n + 4 are not divisible by 3.

__Case III When n = 3q + 2__

In this case, we have

n = 3q + 2

⇒ n leaves remainder 2 when divided by 3

⇒ n is not divisible by 3

Now, n = 3q + 2

⇒ n + 2 = 3q + 2 + 2 = 3(q + 1) + 1,

⇒ n + 2 leaves remainder 1 when divided by 3

⇒ n + 2 is not divisible by 3

Again, n = 3q + 2

⇒ n + 4 = 3q + 2 + 4 = 3(q + 2)

⇒ n + 4 is divisible by 3

Thus, n + 4 is divisible by 3 but n and n + 2 are not divisible by 3.

**Question 3.**

Check whether 6^{n} can end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.

**Answer:**

If any number end with digit 0, it should be divisible by 10 or in other words, it will also be divisible by 2 and 5 as

Prime factorization of 6^{n} = (2×3)^{n}

It can be observed that 5 is not in the prime factorization of 6^{n}.

Hence, for an value of n, 6^{n} will not visible by 5.

∴ 6^{n} cannot end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.

**Question 4.**

Explain why 7 × 11 × 13 + 13 and 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 + 5 are composite numbers.

**Answer:**

Numbers are of two types – composite and prime. Prime numbers can be divided by 1 and only itself, whereas composite numbers have factors other than 1 and itself.

It can be observed that

7×11×13 + 13 = 13×(7×11 + 1) = 13×(77 + 1) = 13×78

= 13×13×6

The given expression has 6 and 13 as its factors.

∴ , it is a composite factor.

7×6×5×4×3×2×1 + 5 = 5×(7×6×4×3×2×1 + 1)

= 5×(1008 + 1) = 5×1009

1009 cannot be factorized further. Therefore, the given expression has 5 and 1009 as its factors. Hence, it is a composite number.

**Question 5.**

How will you show that (17 × 11 × 2) + (17 × 11 × 5) is a composite number? Explain.

**Answer:**

Numbers are of two types – composite and prime. Prime numbers can be divided by 1 and only itself, whereas composite numbers have factors other than 1 and itself.

It can be observed that

(17×11×2) + (17×11×5) = 17{(11×2) + (11×5)}

= 17×{11×{(2) + (5)}} = 17×11×7

The given expression has 17, 11and 7 as its factors.

∴ it is a composite factor.

**Question 6.**

What is the last digit of 6^{100}.

**Answer:**

This is related to concept of numbers in the unit digits place of the powers of natural number. The power of 6 any index repetition 6 i.e. (6)^{n} the last digit is 6 only.

Example:

i: 6^{1} = 6

ii: 6^{2} = 36

iii: 6^{3} = 216

The last digit in the expansion of 6^{100} is 6.

###### Exercise 1.4

**Question 1.**

Prove that the following are irrational.

**Answer:**

Let be rational. Then, there exists positive co-primes a and b such that

⇒

⇒

⇒

is rational as a and b are integers

∴√2 is rational which contradicts to the fact that √2 is irrational.

Hence, our assumption is false and is irrational.

**Question 2.**

Prove that the following are irrational.

**Answer:**

Let us suppose that is rational.

Let be rational equal to , where a and b are integers and a≠0 and b≠0 Then,

⇒

⇒ [squaring both sides]

⇒

⇒

⇒

⇒

Since a and b are integers, is rational. So, √3 is rational

Now, this contradicts the fact that √3 is rational.

Hence √3 + √5 is irrational.

**Question 3.**

Prove that the following are irrational.

**Answer:**

6 + √2

Let 6 + √2 be a rational number equal to , where a,b are positive co-primes. Then,

6 + √2 =

⇒ √2

⇒

Since a and b are integers, is also rational and hence, √2should be rational. This is contracdicts the fact that√2is irrational. Therefore , our assumption is false and hence, 6 + √2 is irrational.

**Question 4.**

Prove that the following are irrational.

**Answer:**

√5

Let take √5as rational number equal to , where a, b are positive co-primes. Then,

⇒ √5 b = a

⇒ 5b^{2} = a^{2}[squaring both sides] …I

Therefore, 5 divides a^{2} and according to theorem of rational number, for any prime number p divides a^{2} then it will divide a also.

∴ a = 5c

Put value of a in Eq. I, we get

5b^{2} = (5c)^{2}

⇒ 5b^{2} = 25c^{2}

⇒ [divide by 25 both sides]

Using same theorem we get that b will divide by 5 and we have already get that a is divided by 5. This contradicts our assumption.

Hence, √5 is irrational.

**Question 5.**

Prove that the following are irrational.

**Answer:**

3 + 2√5

Let us assume on the contrary that 3 + 2√5 is rational. Then, there exist co-prime positive integers a and b such that

3 + 2√5

⇒

⇒

⇒ is rational [∵ a,b are integers ∴ is a rational]

This contradicts the fact that is irrational. So, our supposition is incorrect.

Hence, is an irrational number.

**Question 6.**

Prove that is irrational, where p, q are primes.

**Answer:**

Let √p + √qbe rational

⇒ √p + √q [where a, b are co-primes and integers]

Squaring both sides

⇒

⇒ 2√pq = a^2/b^2 -p-q

⇒

⇒ ….I

∴ from Eq. I our assumption contradicts here, because p is rational

Hence, √p + √q is irrational number.

If x^{2} + y^{2} = 25xy, then prove that 2 log(x + y) = 3log3 + logx + logy.

**Answer:**

x^{2} + y^{2} = 25xy

Adding 2xy on both sides

x^{2} + y^{2} + 2xy = 27xy

(x + y)^{2} = 27xy

Taking log both sides

log (x + y)^{2} = log 27xy

2 log (x + y) = log 27 + log x + log y

2 log(x + y) = log 3^{3} + log x + log y

2 log (x + y) = 3 log 3 + log x + log y

**Question 17.**

Is

log2 rational or irrational? Justify your answer.

**Answer:**

Assume that log 2 is rational, that is,

…(1)

where p, q are integers.

Since, and therefore, p<q

From Eq. 1,

2^{q} = (2×5)^{p}

2^{(q-p)} = 5^{p}

Where p-q is an integer greater than 0.

Now, it can be seen that the L.H.S is even and the R.H.S is odd.

Hence, there is contradiction and log 2 is irrational.

**Question 18.**

log 100 rational or irrational? Justify your answer.

**Answer:**

Let us assume log 100 is rational

log 100 = log_{10} 100

log_{10} 10^{2} = 2 log_{10} 10 = 2

As 2 is rational number, ∴ log 100 is also rational.
