#### Exercise 5(D) page no: 40

1. Show that:

(i) division of whole numbers is not closed.

(ii) any whole number divided by 1, always gives the number itself.

(iii) every non-zero whole number divided by itself gives 1 (one).

(iv) zero divided by any non-zero number is zero only.

(v) a whole number divided by 0 is not defined.

For each part, given above, give two suitable examples.

Solution:

(i) Example:

5 and 8 are whole numbers, but 5 ÷ 8 is not a whole number

Therefore, closure property does not exist for division of whole numbers

(ii) Example:

2 ÷ 1 = 2, 18 ÷ 1 = 18, 129 ÷ 1 = 129

Hence, the given statement, any whole number divided by 1, always gives the number itself is true.

(iii) Example:

2 ÷ 2 = 1, 128 ÷ 128 = 1, 256 ÷ 256 = 1

Therefore, the given statement, every non-zero whole number divided by itself gives one is true

(iv) Example:

0 ÷ 138 = 0, 0 ÷ 2028 = 0, 0 ÷ 15140 = 0

Therefore, the given statement, zero divided by any non-zero number is zero only, is true

(v) Example:

7 ÷ 0 is not defined

16 ÷ 0 is not defined

Hence, the given statement, a whole number divided by zero is not defined, is true

2. If x is a whole number such that x ÷ x = x, state the value of x.

Solution:

We know that, any number divided by 1, always gives the number itself

The value of x can be any number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6……and so on.

3. Fill in the blanks:

(i) 987 ÷ 1 = ………..

(ii) 0 ÷ 987 = ……..

(iii) 336 – (888 ÷ 888) = …………

(iv) (23 ÷ 23) – (437 ÷ 437) = ………..

Solution:

(i) 987 ÷ 1 = 987

(ii) 0 ÷ 987 = 0

(iii) 336 – (888 ÷ 888) = 335

(iv) (23 ÷ 23) – (437 ÷ 437) = 0

4. Which of the following statements are true?

(i) 12 ÷ (6 × 2) = (12 ÷ 6) × (12 ÷ 2)

(ii) a ÷ (b – c) = a / b – a / c

(iii) (a – b) ÷ c = a / c – b / c

(iv) (15 – 13) ÷ 8 = (15 ÷ 8) – (13 ÷ 8)

(v) 8 ÷ (15 – 13) = 8 / 15 – 8 / 13

Solution:

(i) 12 ÷ (6 × 2) = (12 ÷ 6) × (12 ÷ 2)

12 ÷ 12 = 2 × 6

1 ≠ 12

Hence, the statement is false

(ii) a ÷ (b – c) = a / b – a / c

a / (b – c) ≠ (ac – ab) / bc

Hence, the statement is false

(iii) (a – b) ÷ c – a / c – b / c

(a – b) / c = (a – b) / c

Hence, the statement is true

(iv) (15 – 13) ÷ 8 = (15 ÷ 8) – (13 ÷ 8)

(15 – 13) / 8 = 15 – 13 / 8

2 / 8 = 2 / 8

Hence, the statement is true.

(v) 8 ÷ (15 – 13) = 8 / 15 – 8 / 13

8 / 2 = (104 – 120) / 15 (13)

4 ≠ (-16) / {15 (13)}

Hence, the statement is false

(iii) and (iv) statements are true
