Factors and Multiples Exercise 3.6 Solution

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) 36 and 252 36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

252 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7

HCF is = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

= 36

So, the HCF of 36 and 252 is 36

(b) 18 and 60 18 = 2 × 3 × 3

0 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

∴ HCF is 2 × 3 = 6

Thus, the HCF of 18 and 60 is 6

(c) 170 and 238 170 = 2 × 5 × 17

238 = 2 × 7 × 17

HCF is 2 × 17 = 34

Hence, the HCF of 170 and 238 is 34

(e) 106, 159 and 371 106 = 2 × 53

159 = 3 × 53

371 = 7 × 53

HCF is 53

Therefore, the HCF of 106, 159 and 371 is 53

(f) 90, 140 and 210 90 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 5

140 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

210 = 2 × 3 × 5 × 7

HCF is 2 × 5 = 10

Therefore, the HCF of 90, 140 and 210 is 10

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) 30 and 75 LCM = 3 × 5 × 2 × 5

= 150

Hence, the LCM of 30 and 75 is 150

(b) 42 and 77 LCM = 7 × 6 × 11

= 462

So, the LCM of 42 and 77 is 462

(c) 24, 36 and 40 LCM = 4 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5

= 360

Thus, the LCM of 24, 36 and 40 is 360

(d) 28, 36, 45, 60 LCM = 2 × 2 ×3 × 3 × 5 × 7

= 1260

Hence, the LCM of 28, 36, 45, 60 is 1260

(e) 144, 180 and 384 LCM = 4 × 3 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 8

= 5760

Therefore, the LCM of 144, 180 and 384 is 5760

Question no – (3)

Solution :

First we have to find the LCM of 6, 9, and 12 ∴ LCM = 2 × 3 × 3 × 2

= 36

Now, We have to find the smallest number which is divisible by 36

= 36 ÷ 100

= 28

The required number is,

= (100 – 28) + 36

= 72 + 36

= 108

Thus, the smallest three-digit number is 108.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

First we have to find the LCM of 15, 24, 30 LCM = 2 × 3 × 5 × 4

= 120

Now, The required number is,

= 999999 – 39

= 999960

Therefore, the required number is 999960.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

First we have to find the LCM of 16, 18, 24, 36 LCM = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 2

= 144

Now, ∴ The required number is,

= [(10000 – 64) + 144]

= 10080

Therefore, the required least number of five digits is 10080.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

First we have to find the LCM of 16, 28, 40, 77 LCM = 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 × 2 × 5 × 11

= 6160

The required number is,

= 6160 + 7

= 6167

Therefore, the required number is 6167

Question no – (7)

Solution :

First,

7 m = 700 cm,

3 m 85 cm = 385 cm,

12 m 95 cm = 1295 cm.

Now, 700 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 7

385 = 5 × 7 × 11

1295 = 5 × 7 × 37

The length of the largest tape is,

= (5 × 7) cm

= 35 cm.

Therefore, the length of the largest tape will be 35 cm.

Question no – (8)

Solution : = 3 × 3 × 4 × 5

= 180 sec

= 180/60 min

= 3 min

Therefore, after 3 minutes, the bells will toll together.

Question no – (9)

Solution : = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 4 × 3

= 432 m

Hence, After 432 m of distance, they will take steps together.

Question no – (10)

Solution : 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

= 72 sec

= 72 ÷ 60

= 1 min 12 sec

Thus, at 6 : 1 : 12 a.m. the lights will change again simultaneously.

Question no – (11)

Solution :

As per the question we know,

There are 527 pencils, 646 erasers and 748 sharpners

Now, = 527 = 17 × 31

= 646 = 17 × 2 × 19

= 748 = 2 × 2 × 11 × 17

Therefore, in each packet, there can be 17 items.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

We have to find the HCF of

= (80 – 8), (118 – 10), (60 – 12)

i.e 72, 108, 48 = 72 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

= 108 = 2 ×2 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 48 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3

The required number is,

= 2 × 2 × 3

= 12

Therefore, the required greatest number is 12.

Factors and Multiples Exercise 3.7 Solution

Question no – (1)

Solution :

As we know that,

HCM × LCM = 1st number × 2nd number

or, 5 × 280 = 35 × 2nd number

2nd number = 5 × 240/35

2nd number = 40

Therefore, the other number is 40.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

As we know that,

HCF × LCM = 1st number × 2nd number

or, 16 × LCM = 3072

or, LCM = 3072/16 = 192

Therefore, their LCM is 192.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

As we know that,

HCM × LCM = 1st number × 2nd number

or, = 23 × 1449/161

= 207

Hence, the other number will be 207

Question no – (4)

Solution :

As we know that,

HCF = product of numbers/LCM

or, HCF = 2560/320

or, HCF = 8

Therefore, their HCF will be 8.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

No, because LCM of two numbers must be divisible by their HCF. But, 16 does not divide 130. Therefore two numbers cannot have 16 as their HCF and 130 as their LCM.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Since, 18 divides 162, two numbers can have 18 as their HCF and 162 as their LCM.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

= 90

The required number is,

= 90 + 5

= 95

Hence, the lest number will be 95

Question no – (9)

Solution :

Lets take 1, 2, 3 then 1 × 2 × 3 = 6, divisible by 6

2, 3, 4 then 2 × 3 ×4 = 24 divisible by 6

3, 4, 5 then 3 ×4 ×5 = 60, divisible by 6

4, 5, 6 then 4 × 5 × 6 = 120, divisible by 6

So, in every example we can see that the given statement is True.

Question no – (11)

Solution :

From the given numbers the co-prime number are –

(a) 18 and 35

(b) 15 and 37

(e) 216 and 215

(f) 81 and 16

Question no – (12)

Solution : = 20 = 2 × 2 × 5

= 28 = 2 × 2 × 7

= 36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

The greatest denomination of stamps will be,

= 2 × 2

= 4 rupees.

Question no – (14)

Solution :

 Numbers 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 (a) 7132 ✔ × × × × × × × × (b) 3009 × ✔ × × × × × × × × (c) 12330 ✔ ✔ × ✔ ✔ × × ✔ ✔ × (d) 76505 × × × ✔ × × × × × ✔ (e) 335786 ✔ × × × × × × × × ✔

Question no – (15)

Solution :

The required number is the HCF of (1280 – 6), (1371 – 6)

Or, 1274, 1365 1274 = 2 × 7 × 7 × 13

1365 = 3 × 5 × 7 × 13

The required number is,

= 7 × 13

= 91
