= 20

= 1

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) ((-3/2)-3)-2

= (2/3)-6

(b) 36t-3/6-3 × t-5(t ≠ 0)

= 62 × t-3/6-3 × t-5

= 62 + 3 × t-3 + 5

= 65 × t2

= 1/6-5 . t-2

(c) ((-2/3)-2)3 × (1/3)-4 × 3-1 × 1/12

= {(- 3/2)2}3 × (3)4

= -36/26 × 34

= -36 – 4/26

= – 32/26

= 3-2/26

= (2/3)-6-2

= (2/3)-8

(d) (1/4)-2 × (1/2)-3 × (8)4

= (1/2)-4 × (1/2)-3 × (1/2)-12

= (1/2)-4-3-12

= (1/2)-19 (Negative exponent)

Question no – (4)

Solution :

(a) (2/3)12 = (3/2)-3x

= (2/3)12 = (2/3)3x

= 3x = 12

= x = 12/3

= x = 4

Thus, the value of x is 4.

(b) ((-8)2)3 = (-8)2x

= (-8)6 = (-8)2x

= 2x = 6

= x = 6/2

= 3

Hence, the value of x is 3.

(c) (3/4)21 × (3/4)3 = (3/4)3x

= (3/4)24 = (3/4)3x

= 3x = 24

= x = 24/3

= 8

Thus, the value of x is 8.

(d) (2/3)3 × (2/6)-6 = (2/3)x-4

= (2/3)3 – 6 = (2/3)x – 4

= x – 4 = -3

= x = -3 + 4

= 1

Therefore, the value of x is 1.

(e) ((3/4)-6 ÷ (3/4)3)x = (3/4)-9

= ((3/4)-6 × (3/4)-3)x = (3/4)-9

= (3/4)-9x = (3/4)-9

= -9x = -9

= x = 9/9

= 1

Thus, the value of x is 1.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(a) 2m/2-2 = 23

= 2m = 23 × 2-2

= 2 3-2

2m = 21

m = 1

(b) 3m × 36/3-3 = 318

= 3m × 36 = 318 – 3

= 316

= 3m = 315 – 6

= 39

m = 9

(c) 6m × 63 × 6-2/6-5 = 612

= 6m × 63 × 6-2 = 612 – 5

= 67

= 6m × 61 = 67

= 67-1

6m = 66

= m = 6

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Given number = (-2/3)-3

Quotient is = (9/8)-2

The required number is,

= (-3/2)3/(8/9)2

= (3/-2)3 × (9/8)2

= 33/-23 × (32/23)2

= -33 × 34/23 × 26

= -37/29

Therefore, the required number will be -37/29

Question no – (7)

Solution :

1st, 144 × 2-3

= 144 × ½

= 12

2nd, 144 × 12-1

= 144 × 1/12

= 12

3rd, 144 × 3-2

= 144 × 1/9

= 16

Now, 144 × 2-3 × 12-1 × 3-2

= 144 × 1/8 × 1/12 × 1/9

= 3/18

= 1/6

Therefore, the final product will be 1/6.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

(a) 1/9(33x) = 33x-2

= L.H.S, 1/9 × 33x

= 1/32 × 33x

= 33x – 2

= R.H.S

(b) 5x+1 = (25 × 5x)1/5

= R.H.S, (25 × 5x) 1/5

= (5x × 5x) × 1/5

= (5x × 51)

= 5x + 1

= L.H.S

(c) (3/5)x-1 = (3×5/5×3)

= R.H.S, (3x × 5/5x × 31)

= 3x – 1/5x – 1

= (3/5)x – 1

= L.H.S (Proved)

Question no – (10)

Solution :

Given, x = (3/2)2 × (2/3)-4

= (3/2)2 × (3/2)4

= (3/2)6

x-2 = {(3/2)6}-2

= (3/2)-12

Therefore, the value of x-2 is (3/2)-12

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Given, One angstrom is the ten billionth part of a metre

In scientific notation = 10-9 m

Question no – (4)

Solution :

According to the question,

Single calculation in about = 0.0000034 seconds

Calculate 4,000 such calculations = ?

Total time,

= (4000 × 0.0000034)

= (1.36 × 10-2)

Therefore, calculator will it take (1.36 × 10-2)

Question no – (5)

Solution :

Hour = 1h = 3600 s = 3.6 × 103 s

Day = 1 day = 8.64 × 104 seconds

Week = 1 week = 6.048 × 10s

Month = 1 m = 30 day × 8.64 × 104 = 2.592 × 106 s

Year = 1 year = (3.156 × 107) seconds

Question no – (6)

Solution :

As we know that, 1 hectare = 10, 000 sq. m

(10000 × 10000) cm

= 108 sq.cm

Therefore, this will be 108 sq. cm.
