(a) 3/5 + 8/6

= 18 + 40/30

= 58/30

= 29/15

= 1 14/15…(Solved)

(b) 6/9 + 3/4 + 2/5

= 120 + 13.5 + 72/180

= 327/180

= 1 49/60…(Solved)

(c) 3/5 -6/7

= 21 -30/35

= -9/35…(Solved)

(d) 7/9 – (- 4/5)

= 7/9 + 4/5

= 35 + 36/45

= 71/45

= 1 26/45…(Solved)

(e) -11/10 – (-19/15)

= -11/10 + 19/15

= -33 + 38/30

= 5/30

= 1/6…(Solved)

(f) 4/5 × (3/9 + 2/3)

= 4/5 × (3 + 6/9)

= 4/5 × 9/9

= 4/5…(Solved)

(g) (6/9 × 3/4) + (6/9 × 5/7)

= 3/6 + 30/63

= 189 + 180/378

= 369/378

= 41/42…(Solved)

(h) 85/17 ÷ 64/16

= 85/17 × 16/64

= 5/4…(Solved)

Question no – (2)

Solution :

To prove commutative property,

1st, (7/8 + 4/6)

= 21 + 16/24

= 37/24

2nd, (4/6 + 7/8)

= 16 + 21/24

= 37/24

1st = 2nd

Therefore, Commutative property holds.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

To prove associative property,

1st, (7/8 + 2/5) + 8/3

= (35 + 16/40) + 8/3

= 51/40 + 8/3

= 153 + 320/120

= 473/120

2nd, 7/8 + (2/5 + 8/3)

= 7/8 + (6 + 40/15)

= 7/8 + 46/15

= 105 + 368/120

= 473/120

1st = 2nd

Therefore, Associative property holds.

Question no – (4)

Solution :

To prove Commutative property,

1st, 7/11 – 6/5

= 35 – 66/55

= – 31/55

2nd, 6/5 – 7/11

= 66 – 35/55

= 31/55

31/55 ≠ – 31/55

Therefore, Commutative property not hold.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

To prove Associative property,

1st, 8/9 – (9/10 – 2/5)

= 8/9 – (9 – 4/10)

= 8/9 – 5/10

= 80 – 45/90

= 35/90

= 7/18

2nd, (8/9 – 9/10) – 2/5

= 80 – 81/90 – 2/5

= – 1/90 – 2/5

= – 1/90 – 2/5

= – 1 – 36/90

= – 37/90

7/18 ≠ – 37/90

Therefore, Associative property does not hold.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

(a) L.H.S, (5/125 × 36/6) × 100/24

= (6/25 × 100/24)

= 1

R.H.S, 5/125 × (36/6 × 100/24)

= 1/25 × (6 × 100/24)

= 1/25 × 25

= 1

L.H.S = R.H.S

(b) L.H.S, 5/4 × (54/48 + 105/75)

= 5/4 × (9/8 + 21/15)

= 5/4 × (9/8 + 7/5)

= 5/4 × (45 + 56/40)

= 5/4 × (101/40)

= 101/32

R.H.S, (5/4 × 54/48) + (5/4 × 105/75)

= 45/32 + 35/20

= 225 + 280/160

= 505/160

= 101/32

L.H.S = R.H.S

Distribution property.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

Given, 4/5 × (125/64 + 75/48) × 5/4 × (64/125 + 48/75)

= 4/5 × (375 + 300/192) × 5/4 × (192 + 240/375)

= 4/5 × 675/192 × 5/4 × 432/375

= 9 × 432/192 × 5

= 81/20

= 4 1/20…(Simplified)

Rational Numbers Exercise 1.3 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

Required buckets,

= 65 1/2 ÷ 5 3/4

= 131/2 ÷ 23/4

= 131/2 × 4/23

= 262/23

= 11 9/23

Therefore, 11 9/23 bucket’s of paint will required in all.

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Invest amount = 5 3/5 Lakhs

= 5L + 3/5 × 10,0000

= 5,60,00 Rs

Profit = 7000 + 1/4 × 1000

= 7250 Rs

Capital Expenditure

= (5,60,000 + 7250) Rs

= 567250 Rs

Therefore, Rs 567250 will available for expenditure.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Speed = 255km/1 1/2h

= 255/3/2

= 255 × 2/3

= 170 km/h

Distance cover = (170 × 3 4/5) km

= (170 × 19/5)

= 646 km

Therefore, the speed of the train will be 170 km/h and distance cover in 3 hours will be 646 km.
