Exercise 1(A) Page no: 5
1. Which is greater?
(i) 537 or 98
(ii) 2428 or 529
(iii) 2, 59, 467 or 10, 35, 729
Solution:
(i) 537 or 98
Here 537 is a three digit number and 98 is a two digit number
âˆ´537 > 98
(ii) 2428 or 529
Here 2428 is a four digit number and 529 is a three digit number
âˆ´2428 > 529
(iii) 2, 59,467 or 10, 35,729
Here 10, 35,729 is a seven digit number and 2, 59,467 is a six digit number
âˆ´10,35,729 > 2,59,467
2. Which is smaller?
(i) 428 or 437
(ii) 2497 or 2597
(iii) 3297 or 3596
Solution:
(i) 428 or 437
We observe that both the numbers are of three digit numbers
At the leftmost, both the number have same digit i.e. 4.
At the second place from left, the first number has 2 and the second number has 3
We know that,
2 < 3
âˆ´ 428 is smaller than 437
(ii) 2497 or 2597
We observe that both the numbers are of four digit numbers.
At the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 2
At the second place from the left, the first number has 4 and the second number has 5
We know that,
4 < 5
âˆ´2497 is smaller than 2597
(iii) 3297 or 3596
We observe that both the number are of four digit numbers
At the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 3
At the second place from the left, the first number has 2 and the second number has 5
We know that,
2 < 5
âˆ´3297 is smaller than 3596
3.Which is greater?
(i) 45293 or 45427
(ii) 380362 or 381007
(iii) 63520 or 63250
Solution:
(i) 45293 or 45427
We observe that both the numbers are of 5 digits numbers
The digits are same at the leftmost and second place from left
But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 2 and the second number has 4
We know that,
2 < 4
Hence, 45427 is greater than 45293
(ii) 380362 or 381007
We observe that both the numbers are of 6 digits numbers
The digits are same at the leftmost and second place from left
But the digits at the third place from left are different, the first number has 0 and the second number has 1
We know that,
0 < 1
Hence, 381007 is greater than 380362
(iii) 63520 or 63250
We observe that both the numbers are of 5 digits numbers
The digits are same at the leftmost and second place from left
But the digits at the third place from left are different, the first number has 5 and the second number has 2
We know that,
2 < 5
Hence, 63520 is greater than 63250
4. By making a suitable chart, compare:
(i) 540276 and 369998
(ii) 6983245 and 6893254
Solution:
(i) 540276 and 369998
5 | 4 | 0 | 2 | 7 | 6 |
3 | 6 | 9 | 9 | 9 | 8 |
Here, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 6
At the leftmost, the first number has 5 and the second number has 3
Since 5 > 3
540276 is greater than 369998
(ii) 6983245 and 6893254
6 | 9 | 8 | 3 | 2 | 4 | 5 |
6 | 8 | 9 | 3 | 2 | 5 | 4 |
Here, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 7
At the leftmost, both the numbers have the same digit i.e. 6
At the second place from left, the first number has 9 and the second number has 8
Since, 9 > 8
6983245 is greater than 6893254

Solution:
(i) 983, 5754, 84 and 5942
Since 84 has the least number of digits.
84 is the smallest number
5754 and 5942 have the maximum number of digits. Among these two 5942 is greater than 5754
Therefore 84 is the smallest number and 5942 is the greatest number
(ii)32849, 53628, 5499 and 54909.
Since 5499 has the least number of digits.
5499 is the smallest
