(ii) 394 Ã— 12 + 394 Ã— (-2)

(iii) 558 Ã— 27 + 3 Ã— 558

Solution:

(i) 427 Ã— 8 + 2 Ã— 427

Using Distributive property

= 427 Ã— (8 + 2)

By further calculation

= 427 Ã— 10

= 4270

(ii) 394 Ã— 12 + 394 Ã— (-2)

Using Distributive property

= 394 Ã— (12 â€“ 2)

By further calculation

= 394 Ã— 10

= 3940

(iii) 558 Ã— 27 + 3 Ã— 558

Using Distributive property

= 558 Ã— (27 + 3)

By further calculation

= 558 Ã— 30

= 16740

2. Evaluate:

(i) 673 Ã— 9 + 673

(ii) 1925 Ã— 101 â€“ 1925

Solution:

(i) 673 Ã— 9 + 673

Using Distributive property

= 673 Ã— (9 + 1)

By further calculation

= 673 Ã— 10

= 6730

(ii) 1925 Ã— 101 â€“ 1925

Using Distributive property

= 1925 Ã— (101 â€“ 1)

By further calculation

= 1925 Ã— 100

= 192500

3. Verify:

(i) 37 Ã— {8 + (-3)} = 37 Ã— 8 + 37 Ã— (-3)

(ii) (-82) Ã— {(- 4) + 19} = (-82) Ã— (- 4) + (-82) Ã— 19

(iii) {7 â€“ (-7)} Ã— 7 = 7 Ã— 7 â€“ (-7) Ã— 7

(iv) {(-15) â€“ 8} Ã— -6 = (-15) Ã— (-6) â€“ 8 Ã— (-6)

Solution:

(i) 37 Ã— {8 + (-3)} = 37 Ã— 8 + 37 Ã— (-3)

Consider LHS = 37 Ã— {8 + (-3)}

It can be written as

= 37 Ã— {8 â€“ 3}

By further calculation

= 37 Ã— {5}

= 185

Similarly RHS = 37 Ã— 8 + 37 Ã— (-3)

It can be written as

= 37 Ã— (8 â€“ 3)

By further calculation

= 37 Ã— 5

= 185

Therefore, LHS = RHS.

(ii) (-82) Ã— {(- 4) + 19} = (-82) Ã— (- 4) + (-82) Ã— 19

Consider LHS = (-82) Ã— {(- 4) + 19}

It can be written as

= (-82) Ã— {-4 + 19}

By further calculation

= (-82) Ã— {15}

= – 1230

Similarly RHS = (-82) Ã— (- 4) + (-82) Ã— 19

It can be written as

= (-82) Ã— (-4 + 19)

By further calculation

= – 82 Ã— 15

= – 1230

Therefore, LHS = RHS.

(iii) {7 â€“ (-7)} Ã— 7 = 7 Ã— 7 â€“ (-7) Ã— 7

Consider LHS = {7 â€“ (-7)} Ã— 7

It can be written as

= {7 + 7} Ã— 7

By further calculation

= {14} Ã— 7

= 98

Similarly RHS = 7 Ã— 7 â€“ (-7) Ã— 7

It can be written as

= 7 Ã— 7 + 7 Ã— 7

By further calculation

= 7 Ã— (7 + 7)

= 7 Ã— 14

= 98

Therefore, LHS = RHS.

(iv) {(-15) â€“ 8} Ã— -6 = (-15) Ã— (-6) â€“ 8 Ã— (-6)

Consider LHS = {(-15) â€“ 8} Ã— -6

It can be written as

By further calculation

= {-23} Ã— -6

= 138

Similarly RHS = (-15) Ã— (-6) â€“ 8 Ã— (-6)

It can be written as

= – 6 Ã— (- 15 â€“ 8)

By further calculation

= – 6 Ã— – 23

= 138

The number of negative integer in the product is even

(iv) (-2) Ã— (-4) Ã— 6 Ã— (-8) = -384

The number of negative integer in the product is odd

(v) (-2) Ã— (-4) Ã— (-6) Ã— (-8) = 384

The number of negative integer in the product is even

7. Determine the integer whose product with â€˜-1â€™ is:

(i) -47

(ii) 63

(iii) -1

(iv) 0

Solution:

(i) -47 = – 1 Ã— 47

Therefore, the integer is 47.

(ii) 63 = – 1 Ã— – 63

Therefore, the integer is â€“ 63.

(iii) -1 = – 1 Ã— 1

Therefore, the integer is 1.

(iv) 0 = -1 Ã— 0

Therefore, the integer is 0.

8. Eighteen integers are multiplied together. What will be the sign of their product, if:

(i) 15 of them are negative and 3 are positive?

(ii) 12 of them are negative and 6 are positive?

(iii) 9 of them are positive and the remaining are negative?

(iv) all are negative?

Solution:

(i) Out of 18 integers, 15 of them are negative which is odd number. Therefore, the sign of product is negative.

(ii) Out of 18 integers, 12 of them are negative which is even number. Therefore, the sign of product is positive.

(iii) Out of 18 integers, 9 of them are negative which is odd number. Therefore, the sign of product is negative.

(iv) All are negative which is even number. Therefore, sign of product is positive.

9. Find which is greater?

(i) (8 + 10) Ã— 15 or 8 + 10 Ã— 15

(ii) 12 Ã— (6 â€“ 8) or 12 Ã— 6 â€“ 8

(iii) {(-3) â€“ 4} Ã— (-5) or (-3) â€“ 4 Ã— (-5)

Solution:

(i) (8 + 10) Ã— 15 or 8 + 10 Ã— 15

We know that

(8 + 10) Ã— 15 = 18 Ã— 15 = 270

8 + 10 Ã— 15 = 8 + 150 = 158

Therefore, (8 + 10) Ã— 15 > 8 + 10 Ã— 15.

(ii) 12 Ã— (6 â€“ 8) or 12 Ã— 6 â€“ 8

We know that

12 Ã— (6 â€“ 8) = 12 (-2) = – 24

12 Ã— 6 â€“ 8 = 72 â€“ 8 = 64

Therefore, 12 Ã— (6 â€“ 8) < 12 Ã— 6 â€“ 8.

(iii) {(-3) â€“ 4} Ã— (-5) or (-3) â€“ 4 Ã— (-5)

We know that

{(-3) â€“ 4} Ã— (-5) = {- 3 â€“ 4} Ã— (-5)

By further calculation

= – 7 Ã— -5 = 35

Similarly

(-3) â€“ 4 Ã— (-5) = – 3 + 20 = 17

Therefore, {(-3) â€“ 4} Ã— (-5) > (-3) â€“ 4 Ã— (-5)

10. State, true or false:

(i) product of two different integers can be zero.

(ii) product of 120 negative integers and 121 positive integers is negative.

(iii) a Ã— (b + c) = a Ã— b + c

(iv) (b â€“ c) Ã— a = b â€“ c Ã— a.

Solution:

(i) True.

Example: 5 Ã— 0 = 0, 0 Ã— – 8 = 0

(ii) False.

The total number of negative integers is 120 which is an even number and we know that the product of even numbers of negative integers is always positive. Hence, the sign of the product will be positive.

(iii) False.

a Ã— (b + c) â‰  a Ã— b + c

ab + ac â‰  ab + c

(iv) False.

(b â€“ c) Ã— a â‰  b â€“ c Ã— a

ab â€“ ac â‰  b â€“ ca

= 2550 â€“ 243

= 2307

10. 30 + [{-2 Ã— (25 – )}]

Solution:

30 + [{-2 Ã— (25 –
)}]

It can be written as

= 30 + [{-2 Ã— (25 â€“ 10)}]

By further calculation

= 30 + [{-2 Ã— 15}]

So we get

= 30 + [-30]

= 30 â€“ 30

= 0

11. 88 â€“ {5 â€“ (-48) Ã· (-16)}

Solution:

88 â€“ {5 â€“ (-48) Ã· (-16)}

It can be written as

= 88 â€“ {5 â€“ (- 48/ -16)}

= 86

12. 9 Ã— (8 – ) â€“ 2 (2 + )

Solution:

9 Ã— (8 –
) â€“ 2 (2 +
)

= 2 â€“ [3 â€“ {6 â€“ (5 â€“ 1)}]

By further calculation

= 2 â€“ [3 â€“ {6 â€“ 4}]

So we get

= 2 â€“ [3 â€“ 2]

= 2 â€“ 1

= 1

#### Exercise 1D page: 15

1. The sum of two integers is â€“ 15. If one of them is 9, find the other.

Solution:

It is given that

Sum of two integers = – 15

One integer = 9

Other integer = – 15 – 9

Taking negative sign as common

= – (15 + 9)

= – 24

2. The difference between integers x and â€“ 6 is â€“ 5. Find the values of x.

x â€“ (-6) = – 5 or â€“ 6 â€“ x = – 5

Solution:

It is given that

The difference between integers x and -6 is -5

x â€“ (-6) = – 5 or â€“ 6 â€“ x = – 5

So the value of x is

x + 6 = – 5 or â€“ x = – 5 + 6

By further calculation

x = – 5 â€“ 6 or â€“ x = 1

x = – 11 or x = – 1

3. The sum of two integers is 28. If one integer is â€“ 45, find the other.

Solution:

It is given that

Sum of two integers = 28

One integer = – 45

Other integer = 28 â€“ (-45)

By further calculation

= 28 + 45

= 73

4. The sum of two integers is â€“ 56. If one integer is â€“ 42, find the other.

Solution:

It is given that

Sum of two integers = – 56

One integer = – 42

Other integer = – 56 â€“ (- 42)

By further calculation

= – 56 + 42

= – 14

5. The difference between an integer x and (-9) is 6. Find all possible values of x.

Solution:

It is given that

The difference between an integer x and (-9) is 6

x â€“ (-9) = 6 or â€“ 9 â€“ x = 6

So the value of x is

x â€“ (-9) = 6 or â€“ 9 â€“ x = 6

By further calculation

x + 9 = 6 or â€“ x = 6 + 9

So we get

x = 6 â€“ 9 or â€“ x = 15

Here

x = – 3 or x = – 15

Therefore, possible values of x are â€“ 3 and â€“ 15.
