(a) 738 × 103

= 738 × 103

= (738 × 100) +(738 × 3)

= 73800 + 2214

= 76014

= 738 × 103= 76014

(b) 854 × 102

= 854 × 102

= (854 × 100) +(854 × 2)

= 87108

854 × 102=87108

(c) 258 × 1008

= 258 × 1008

= (258 × 1000) + (258 × 8)

= 258000 + 2064

= 2, 60,064

= 258 × 1008 = 2, 60,064

(d) 1005 × 168

= 1005 × 168

= (1000 × 168) + (5 × 168)

= 168000 + 840

(5) A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 litres of petrol on Monday. The next day, he filled the tank with 50 litres of petrol. If the petrol costs ₹ 44 per litre, how much did he spend in all on petrol?

Solution :

A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 litres of petrol on Monday.

The next day, he filled the tank with 50 litres of petrol.

Total petrol filled

= 40 + 50

= 90 Litre.

The petrol costs 44 per litre.

Amount spend to fill petrol

= 40 × 90

= 3600.

(6) A vendor supplies 32 litres of milk to a hotel in the morning and 68 litres of milk in the evening. If the milk costs ₹ 45 per litre, how much money is due to the vendor per day?

Solution :

The cost of milk is RS 45 per litre.

Due money for the morning is for 32 litres of milk is = 45 × 32

Due money for the evening is for 68 litres of milk is = 45 × 68

Therefore total due money,

= 45 × 32 + 45 × 68

= 45 (32 + 68)

∴ Rs. 4500 is due to the vendor per day.

(7) Match the following:

(i) 425 × 136 = 425 × (6 + 30 + 100) (a) Commutativity under multiplication.

(ii) 2 × 49 × 50 = 2 × 50 × 49 (b) Commutativity under addition.

(iii) 80 + 2005 + 20 = 80 + 20 + 2005 (c) Distributivity of multiplication over addition.

Solution :

(i) 425 × 136 = 425 × (6 + 30 +100) – (a) Distributivity of multiplication over addition

(ii) 2 × 49 × 50 = 2 × 50 × 49 – (b) Commutativity under multiplication

(iii) 80 + 2005 + 20 = 80 + 20 + 2005 – (c) Commutativity under addition.

Whole Numbers Exercise 2.3 Solutions :

(1) Which of the following will not represent zero

(a) 1 + 0

(b) 0 × 0

(c) 0/2

(D) 10-10/2

Solution :

1 + 0 = 1,

0 × 0 = 0,

0/2 = 0,

10 – 10/2 = 0/2 = 0

∴ 1 + 0 does not/will not represent zero.

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

Solution :

Example :

(i) 2 × 0 = 0

(ii) 0 × 0 = 0

(iii) 3 × 4 = 12

After observing the above examples in example

(i) 2 and 0 are whole numbers in example

(ii) 0 and 0 are whole number and their product is zero, but in example

(iii) 3 and 4 are whole numbers but their product is not equal to zero.

We have come to a connection that if the product of two whole number is zero we can say that one or both of them will be zero.

(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 :

Example :

(i) 0 × 1 = 0

(ii) 1 × 2 = 2

(iii) 1 × 1 = 1

In above given example all are product of whole number i.e. 0, 2 and 1 after observing all of them we get 1 from example (iii) is 1 X 1 = 1 From this we can conclude that if the product of two whole numbers is 1, we can say that both of them will be 1.

(4275 × 100) + (4275 × 25)

427500 + 1, 06,875

= 5, 34,375

4275 × 125= 5, 34,375

(e) 504 × 35

(504 × 30) + (504 × 5)

15120 + 2520

= 17640

504 × 35 =17640

(5) Study the pattern :

1 × 8 + 1 = 9

12 × 8 + 2 = 98

123 × 8 + 3 = 987

1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876

12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765

Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works?

Solution :

1 × 8 + 1 = 9

12 × 8 + 2 = 98

123 × 8 + 3 = 9876

1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876

12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765

123456 × 8 + 6 = 987654

1234567 × 8 + 7 = 9876543

12345678 × 8 = 8 = 98765432

123456789 × 9 + 9 = 987654321
