**1. State the order of the surds given below.**

**Solution:**

**2. State which of the following are surds. Justify.**

**Solution:**

iv.Â âˆš256 = âˆš162Â = 16

SurdsÂ are numbers left in root form (âˆš) to express its exact value. It has an infinite number of non-recurring decimals. Therefore, surds are irrational numbers.

It is not a surdÂ âˆµÂ it is a rational number.

**3. Classify the given pair of surds into like surds and unlike surds.**

**i. âˆš52, 5âˆš13ii. âˆš68, 5âˆš3iii. 4âˆš18, 7âˆš2iv. 19âˆš12, 6âˆš3v. 5âˆš22, 7âˆš33vi. 5âˆš5, âˆš75**

**Solution:**

Two or more surds are said to be similar or like surds if they have the same surd-factor.

Two or more surds are said to be dissimilar or unlike when they are not similar.

Therefore,

**iv.Â Â **

**Solution:**

Practice set 2.5 Page no: 33

**1. Find the value.(i) |15 – 2|(ii) |4 – 9|(iii) |7| Ã— |-4|**

**Solution:**

i.Â Given |15 – 2|

Absolute value describes the distance of a number on the number line from 0 without considering which direction from zero the number lies. The absolute value of a number is never negative.

Therefore,

|15 – 2| = |13| = 13

ii. Given |4 – 9|

Absolute value describes the distance of a number on the number line from 0 without considering which direction from zero the number lies. The absolute value of a number is never negative.

Therefore,

|4 – 9| = |-5| = 5

iii.Â Given |7| Ã— |-4|

Absolute value describes the distance of a number on the number line from 0 without considering which direction from zero the number lies. The absolute value of a number is never negative.

Therefore,

|7| Ã— |-4| = 7 Ã— 4 = 28

**2. Solve.i.Â |3x – 5| = 1ii. |7 â€“ 2x| = 5iii.Â iv.Â **

**Solution:**

Problem set 2 Page no: 34

**1. Choose the correct alternative answer for the questions given below.i. Which one of the following is an irrational number?A.Â âˆš16/25B.Â âˆš5C. 3/9D.Â âˆš196**

**Solution:**

B.Â âˆš5

**Explanation:**

An irrational number is a number that cannot be expressed as aÂ fractionÂ p/qÂ for anyÂ integersÂ p andÂ q and q â‰ 0.

Since âˆš5 cannot be written asÂ p/qÂ it is an irrational number

Therefore âˆš5 is an irrational number.

**ii. Which of the following is an irrational number?A. 0.17B.Â C.Â D. 0.101001000….**

**Solution:**

D. 0.101001000….

**Explanation:**

An irrational number is a number that cannot be expressed as aÂ fractionÂ p/qÂ for anyÂ integersÂ p andÂ q and q â‰ 0.

0.101001000…. is an irrationalÂ number because it is a non-terminating and non-`repeating decimal.

Therefore, 0.101001000…. is an irrationalÂ number.

**iii. Decimal expansion of which of the following is non-terminating recurring?A. 2/5B.Â 3/16C. 3/11D.Â 137/25**

**Solution:**

C. 3/11

**Explanation:**

A non-terminating recurring decimal representation means that the number will have an infinite number of digits to the right of the decimal point and those digits will repeat themselves.

âˆµÂ it hasÂ an infinite number of digits to the right of the decimal point which are repeating themselvesÂ âˆ´Â it is a non-terminating recurring decimal.

**iv. Every point on the number line represent, which of the following numbers?A. Natural numbersB. Irrational numbersC. Rational numbersD. Real numbers.**

**Solution:**

D. Real numbers.

**Explanation:**

Every point of a number line is assumed to correspond to a real number, and every real number to a point.Â Therefore,Â every point on the number line represent a real number.

**v. The number 0.4 in p/q form is â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.A. 4/9B.Â 40/9C. 3.6/9D.Â 36/9**

**Solution:**

C. 3.6/9

**Explanation:**

**vi. What is âˆšn, if n is not a perfect square number?A. Natural numberB. Rational numberC. Irrational numberD. Options A, B, C all are correct.**

**Solution:**

C. Irrational number

**Explanation:**

If n is not a perfect square number, then âˆšn cannot be expressed as ratio of a and b where a and b are integers and b â‰ 0

Therefore, âˆšn is an Irrational number

**vii. Which of the following is not a surd?A. âˆš7B.Â 3âˆš17C. 3âˆš64D. âˆš193**

**Solution:**

C. 3âˆš64

**Explanation:**

**viii. What is the order of the surdÂ ?A. 3B. 2C. 6D. 5**

**Solution:**

C. 6

**Explanation:**

**ix. Which one is the conjugate pair of 2âˆš5 + âˆš3?A. -2âˆš5 + âˆš3B. -2âˆš5 – âˆš3C. 2âˆš3 + âˆš5D. âˆš3 + 2âˆš5**

**Solution:**

A. -2âˆš5 + âˆš3

**Explanation:**

A math conjugate is formed by changing the sign between two terms in a binomial. For instance, the conjugate of x + y is x – y.

Now,

2âˆš5 + âˆš3 = âˆš3 + 2âˆš5

ItsÂ conjugate pair = âˆš3 – 2âˆš5 = -2âˆš5 + âˆš3

âˆ´Â TheÂ conjugate pair of 2âˆš5 + âˆš3 = -2âˆš5 + âˆš3

**x. The value ofÂ |12 â€“ (13 + 7) Ã— 4| is ………..A. -68B. 68C. -32D. 32**

**Solution:**

B. 68

**Explanation:**

|12 â€“ (13 + 7) Ã— 4| = |12 â€“ 20 Ã— 4|Â Â

(Solving it according to BODMAS)

â‡’ |12 â€“ (13 + 7) Ã— 4| = |12 â€“ 80|

â‡’ |12 â€“ (13 + 7) Ã— 4| = |-68|

â‡’ |12 â€“ (13 + 7) Ã— 4| = 68
