1. Fill in the blanks :
(i) Smallest natural number is …………..
(ii) Smallest whole number is …………
(iii) Largest natural number is …………
(iv) Largest whole number is ………..
(v) All natural numbers are …………

Solution:

(i) Smallest natural number is 1

(ii) Smallest whole number is 0

(iii) Largest natural number is not possible

(iv) Largest whole number is not possible

(v) All natural numbers are whole numbers

2. Represent the following whole numbers on a number line:
0, 3, 5, 8, 10

Solution:

Number line used to represent whole numbers 0, 3, 5, 8, 10 is shown below 3. State, true or false :
(i) Whole number are closed for addition.
(ii) If a and b are any two whole numbers, then a + b is not a whole number.
(iii) If a and b are any two whole numbers, then a + b = b + a
(iv) 0 + 18= 18 + 0
(v) Addition of whole numbers is associative.
Solution:

(i) True

(ii) False

(iii) True

(iv) True

(v) True

4. Fill in the blanks :
(i) 54 + 234 = 234 + …………
(ii) 332 + 497 = ………… + 332
(iii) 286 + 0 = ………..
(iv) 286 x 1 = ……….
(v) a + (b + c) = (a + ………) + c

Solution:

(i) 54 + 234 = 234 + 54

(ii) 332 + 497 = 497 + 332

(iii) 286 + 0 = 286

(iv) 286 × 1 = 286

(v) a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c

5. By re-arranging the given numbers, evaluate:
(i) 237 + 308 + 163
(ii) 162 + 253 +338 + 47
(iii) 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 75 + 76 + 77 + 78 + 79
(iv) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 596 + 597 + 598 + 599

Solution:

(i) 237 + 308 + 163

= (237 + 163) + 308 (by associative law)

= 400 + 308

= 708

(ii) 162 + 253 + 338 + 47

= (162 + 338) + (253 + 47) (by associative law)

= 500 + 300

= 800

(iii) 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 75 + 76 + 77 + 78 + 79

= (21 + 79) + (22 + 78) + (23 + 77) + (24 + 76) + (25 + 75) (by associative law)

= 100 + 100 + 100 + 100 + 100

= 500

(iv) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 596 + 597 + 598 + 599

= (1 + 599) + (2 + 598) + (3 + 597) + (4 + 596) (by associative law)

= 600 + 600 + 600 + 600

= 2400

6. Is a + b + c = a + (b + c) = (b + a) + c?

Solution:

Yes, for any set of three whole numbers if the sum of any two whole numbers is added to the third whole number, then whatever be the order, the sum will remain the same.

7. Which property of addition is satisfied by:
(i) 8 + 7 = 15
(ii) 3+ (5 + 4) = (3 + 5)+ 4
(iii) 8 x (8 + 0) = 8 x 8 + 8 x 0
(iv) (7 + 6) x 10 = 7 x 10 + 6 x 10
(v) (15 – 12) x 18 = 15 x 18 – 12 x 18

Solution:

(i) 8 + 7 = 15

The property used as closure property satisfied by 15

(ii) 3 + (5 + 4) = (3 + 5) + 4

3 + (5 + 4) = 3 + 9 = 12 and

(3 + 5) + 4 = 8 + 4 = 12

The property used as Associative law of addition satisfied by 12

(iii) 8 x (8 + 0) = 8 x 8 + 8 x 0

8 × (8 + 0) = 8 × 8

= 64 and

8 × 8 + 8 × 0 = 64 + 0

= 64

The property used as Distributive of multiplication over addition satisfied by 64

(iv) (7 + 6) × 10 = 7 × 10 + 6 × 10

(7 + 6) × 10 = 13 × 10

= 130 and

7 × 10 + 6 × 10 = 70 + 60

= 130

The property used as Distributive property over addition satisfied by 130

(v) (15 – 12) x 18 = 15 x 18 – 12 x 18

(15 – 12) × 18 = 3 × 18

= 54 and

15 × 18 – 12 × 18 = 270 – 216

= 54

The property used as Distributive over subtraction satisfied by 54

8. State, True or False :
(i) The sum of two odd numbers is an odd number.
(ii) The sum of two odd numbers is an even number.
(iii) The sum of two even numbers is an even number.

(ii) True

(iii) True

(iv) False

The sum of two even numbers is an even number

(v) True

(vi) False
