### EXERCISE- 2

Question 1: Frame the numbers in proper order and find the sum
a) 820 + 200 +325
b) 1960 + 448 + 1520 + 638
a) (800 + 325) + 200 = 1325
b) (1960 +1520) + (448 + 638) = 3480 + 1086 = 4566

Question 2:
Find the product by framing it in suitable order
a) 2× 1750× 45
b) 3× 165×25
c) 6×290×120
d) 600×286×18
e) 286×8×70
f) 130×45×6×30
a) 2×1750×45    =  (2×45) ×1750 = 90×1750 = 157,500
b) 3×165×25      =  (3×25) ×165 = 75×165 = 12,375
c) 6×290×120    =  (6×120) ×290 = 720×290 = 208,800
d) 600×286×18  =  (600×18) ×286 = 10800×286 = 3,088,800
e) 286×8×70      =  286× (8×70) = 286×560 = 160,160
f) 130×45×6×30  = (130×6) × (45×30) = 780×1350 = 1,053,000

###### Question 3: Find the solution of the following

a) 290×15 + 290×5
Answer: Since 290 is repeated, we can take it as a common term
290× (15+5) = 290×20 = 5800

b) 54270×95 + 6×54270
Answer: Since 54270 is repeated, we can take it as a common term

54270× (95+6) = 54270×101 = 5,481,270

c) 8250×62 – 8250×50
Answer: Since 8250 is repeated, we can take it as a common term
8250× (62-50) = 8250×12 = 99,000

d) 3845×5×720 + 769×25×220
= 3845×5×720 + (769×5)5×220
= 3845×5×720 + 3845×5×220
Since 3845 and 5 is repeated, we can take it as a common term
= 3845×5× (720 +220)
= 19,225×940
= 18,071,500

Question 4: Use suitable properties to find out the product
a) 642×105
= 642× (100+5)
By distributive law
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 642×100 + 642×5
= 64200 + 3210
= 67,410

b) 850×103
= 850× (100+3)
By distributive law,
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 850×100 + 850×3
= 85000 + 2550
= 87,550

c) 260×1006
= 260× (1000+6)
By distributive law
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 260×1000 + 260×6
= 260000 + 1560
= 261,560

d) 1008×168
= (1000×8) ×168
By distributive law
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 1000×168 + 8×168
= 168000 + 1344
= 169,344

###### Question 5: A cab driver filled his vehicle tank with 35litres of diesel on Tuesday. The next day, he filled the tank with 45litres of diesel. If the diesel costs Rs.32 per litre. How much did he spend on diesel?

The quantity of diesel filled on Tuesday = 35L
The quantity of diesel filled on Wednesday = 45L
The total quantity filled = (35+45)L
Cost of diesel (per L) = Rs.32
The total money spent on diesel = 32× (35+45)
= 32×80
= Rs.2560
The total amount spent on diesel = Rs.2560

Question 6: A milkman supplies 30 liters of milk to a teashop in the morning and 60 liters of milk in the evening. If the cost of milk is 12 per liter, how much does the milkman earn a day?
The quantity of milk supplied in the morning = 30L
The quantity of milk supplied in the evening = 60L
The total quantity filled = (30+60)L
Cost of milk (per L) = Rs.12
(L represents litres)
The total money spent on diesel = 12× (30+60)
= 12×90
= Rs.1080
The total amount spent on diesel = Rs.1080

Question 7: Write the answers using correct property
a) 424×128
424×128 = 424× (100+20+8)
This is distributive property of multiplication over addition

b) 2×49×50
2×48×51 = 2×51×48
]This is commutative property under multiplication

c) 82+2000+20
82+2000+20 = 82+20+2000
This is commutative property under addition

### EXERCISE- 3

###### Question 1: Which out of the following questions will represent zero;a) 2+0b) 1×0c) 02d) 20−202

a) 2 + 0 = 2
It does not represent zero, since the answer is 2.
b) 1*0 = 0
It represents zero, since number multiplied with anything is zero.
c) 02 = 0
It represents zero, since number divided with anything is zero.
d) 20-20/2 = 0
It represents zero.

Question 2: The product of two numbers is zero; can we say that one or both of them will be zero or non-zero? State reasons.
The product of 2 whole numbers will be zero only when one of the number is multiplied with zero
Ex)
5×0 = 0
18×0 = 0
Second case
The product of 2 whole numbers will be zero when both the numbers are multiplied are zero
0×0 = 0
Third case
The product of 2 numbers will not be zero, if both are multiplied with a non-zero number
4×3 = 12
5×4 = 20

Question 3:The product of two whole numbers is 1, can we say that one or both of them will be 1? State reasons.
First case
The product of 2 whole numbers will be one, if both the numbers are multiplied with 1.
Ex)
1×1 =1
Second case
The product of 2 whole numbers will not be 1, if it is multiplied by numbers other than 1.
6×5 = 30
So, it is clear that the product of two numbers will be 1 only when the numbers are multiplied with 1.

Question 4: Find the solution using distributive property.
a) 725×102
By distributive law
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 728× (100+2)
= 728×100 + 728×2
= 72800 + 1456
= 74,256

b) 5450×1004
By distributive law,
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= 5450× (1000+4)
= (5450×1000) + (5450×4)
= 5450000 + 21800
= 5471800

c) 724×25
By distributive law,
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= (700+24) ×25
= (700 + 25 – 1) ×25
= 700×25 + 25×25 – (1×25)
= 17500 + 625 – 25
= 18100

d) 4225×125
By distributive law,
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= (4000 + 200 +100 -75) ×125
= (4000×125) + (200×125) + (100×125) – (75×125)

= (500000) + (25000) + (12500) – (9375)
= 528125

e) 508×35
By distributive law,
A× (B+C) = A×B + A×C
= (500 + 8) ×35
= (500×35) + (8×35)
= 17500 + 280
= 17780

Question 5: Analyze the pattern
(1×8) + 1 = 91234×8 + 4 = 9876
(12×8) +2 = 981234× 8 + 5 = 98765
(123×8) + 3 = 987
Follow the next two steps and explain the working of the pattern
(Note: 12345 = 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1)
