Playing with Numbers Exercise 5(A) Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) Let, a × b = 73

and, b × a = 37

Now, The quotient of 73 + 37 when divided by 11,

= (7 + 3)

= 10

Therefore, the quotient is 10.

(ii) Let, a × b = 73

and, b × a = 37

Now, The quotient of 73 + 37 When divided by 10 than,

= 73 + 37/7 + 3

= 11

Hence, the quotient will be 11.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(i) Here, Let,

ab = 94; ba = 49

a = 9; b = 4

The quotient of (94 + 49) when divided by 11 is,

= 94 + 49/11

= 13

Thus, the quotient will be 13.

(ii) Here Let,

ab = 94; ba = 49

a = 9; b = 4

The quotient of (94 + 49) when divided by 11 is,

= 94 + 49/13

= 11

Therefore, the quotient will be 11.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(i) The quotient of 73 – 37 when divided by 7 that is,

= (7 – 3)

= 4

Hence, the quotient will be 4.

(ii) The quotient of 73 – 37 when divided by 4 that is 9.

= 73 – 37/7 – 3

= 36/4

= 9

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Given in the question, a = b

Prof = abc = bac

abc = 100 + 10 b + c ….(i)

bac = 100 + 10 a + c ….(iv)

Subtract (iv) from (iii)

abc – bac = 0

abc = bac…(Proved)

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(i) Let, ab = 94

ba = 49

The quotient of 94 – 49 is when divided by 9 is,

= (9 – 4)

= 5

Therefore, the quotient will be 5.

(ii) Let, ab = 94

ba = 49

The quotient of 94 – 49 when divided by 5 is,

= (94 – 49/9 – 4)

= 9

Therefore, the quotient will be 9.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Here, abc = 100 a + 10 b + c …..(i)

bca = 100 b + 10 c + a ….(ii)

cab = 100 c + 10 a + b …..(iii)

abc + bca + cab = 11 a + 111b + 111 c

= 111 ( a + b + c)

= 3 × 37 (a + b + c)

Now, 527 + 752 + 275, to check

Here, a = 5, b = 2, c = 7

527 + 752 + 275 = 3 × 37 (5 + 2 + 7)

= 3 × 37 × 14

Therefore, it Divisible by 14

Question no – (8)

Solution :

In the given question, , c > a

Proof – cba = 100 c + 10 b + a

abc = 100 a + 10 b + c

Subtracting, (ii) from (i)

= cba – abc = 100 c + 10 b + a – 100 a – 10 b – c

= cba – abc = 99 c – 99 a

99 (c – a)…(Proved)

Playing with Numbers Exercise 5(B) Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

Given in the question,

3 A + 25 = B 2

Now, 5 + 2 = 7

7 + 5 = 12

37 + 25 = 62

A = 7; B = 6

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Given, 9 8 + 4 A = C B 3

A = 5, so, 8 + 5 = 13

9 + 4 + 1 = 14

A = 5, B = 4, C = 1

98 + 45 = 143

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Given in the question, A 1+ 1 B = B 0

Here, B = 9 so, 9 + 1 = 10

= 9 – 2 = 7

= A

Therefore, 71 + 19 = 90

Question no – (4)

Solution :

Given, 2 A B + A B 1 = B 1 8

Here, 8 – 1 = 7 = B

7 + A = 11

A = 11 -7

= 4

247 + 471 = 718

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Given, 1 2 A + 6 A B = A 0 9

Now, A + B = 9

= 2 + A = 10

= A = 8

9 – 8 = 1 = B

128 + 681 = 809

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Given, 1 A × A = 9A

Here, A = 6

16 × 6 = 96

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Given, AB + 6 = BBB

Here, B = 4

6 × 4 = 24

6 × A + 2

= 4

= A = 7

74 × 6 = 444

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Given, AB × 5 = CAB

B = 0 or 5 × 0 = 0

Now, A × 5 = A

5 × 5 = 25

C = 2

50 × 5 = 250

Question no – (10)

Solution :

Given, 8 A 5 + 9 4 A = 1 A 3 3

Now, 5 + A = 33

A + 4 = 13

A = 13 – 4

= 8

885 + 948 = 1833

Question no – (11)

Solution :

As per the question,

6 A B 5 + D 5 8 C = 9 3 5 1

C + 5 = 11

= C = 11 – 5

= 6

8 + B + 1 = 15

B = 15 – 9

= 6

A + 5 + 1

= 13

= A = 13 – 6

= 7

And, 6 + D + 1 = 9

= D = 9 – 7

= 2

6765 + 2586 = 9351

Playing with Numbers Exercise 5(C) Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

We know that, a number having its unit digit 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 divisible by 2.

So that, here (i) 192 and (ii) 1660 are divisible by 2.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

We know, a number is divisible by 3, when the sum of the digits of number is divisible by 3.

Hence, here (i) 261 and 777 is divisible by 3.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

A number is divisible by 4, if the number formed by the last two digits is divisible by 4.

That’s why, (i) 360, (iii) 5348 and (iv) 7756 are divisible by 4

Question no – (4)

Solution :

As we know, a number having its unit digit 0 or 5 is divisible by 5,

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Here, A number having its unit digit ‘0’ is divisible by 10.

Thus, we can say that, here (i) 5100 and (iii) 3400 is divisible by 10.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

A number is divisible by 11 it the digit of the sum of digits at the odd place and the sum of digits at sum place is zero or eleven.

Therefore, given in the question only (i) 2563 is divisible by 11.
