NCERT Solutions For Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals are intended to help students of class 8 get accustomed to the topic of decimals and practice the concepts. Decimal is a method of writing numbers where every digit describes the various power of ten. It requires a  dot to divide the fractional and integral parts of a number. Decimal point divides its fractional part on the right from the whole number on its left. The point act as a separator between a unit and a component of a unit. The decimal numeral system is the conventional method for indicating non-integer and integer numbers. The system of expressing numbers in the decimal system is termed as Decimal notation. The decimal number system depends on the preceding. As we depart from left to right, the place value gets divided by 10.

  9. 2.6 or 2.6000
  10. 4.89 or 4.9

Answer

1.  0.3 or 0.5

In these numbers, whole part is same but the tenth part of 0.3 is smaller than 0.5.

Therefore, 0.5 > 0.3

 

2. 0.08 or 0.03

In these numbers the hundredth place of 0.08 is greater than 0.03.

Therefore, 0.08 > 0.03

 

3. 5 or 0.9

In these numbers, whole part 5 is greater than 0 in 0.9.

Therefore, 5 > 0.9

 

4. 0.3 or 0.03

In these numbers the tenth place of 0.3 is greater than 0.03.

Therefore, 0.3 > 0.03

 

5. 2.6 or 2.61

In these numbers the hundredth place of 2.6 is smaller than 2.61.

Therefore, 2.61 > 2.6

 

6. 0.09 or 0.019

In these numbers, hundredth place of 0.019 is smaller than 0.09.

Therefore, 0.09 > 0.019

 

7. 1.7 or 1.70

In these numbers, whole part is same. Even tenth place is equal. But in first number there is no hundredth place that means that there is zero. So both the numbers are equal.

Therefore, 1.7 = 1.70

 

8. 5.26 or 5.36

In these numbers, whole part 5 is same. Now tenth place of 5.26 is smaller than that of 5.36.

Therefore, 5.36 > 5.26

 

9. 2.6 or 2.6000

In these numbers, whole part 2 is equal. Tenth place is also same. But there are three zeros in case of second number. In first number it is till tenth place but it implies that there are zeros present. So they are equal.

Therefore, 2.6 = 2.6000

 

10. 4.89 or 4.9

In these numbers, the whole part is same but tenth place of 4.89 is smaller than that of 4.9.

Therefore, 4.9 > 4.89

A decimal refers to the representation of numbers in a system that comprises of a decimal separator (Like 1.00, 4.119, 0.455, etc). These are the decimal fractions i.e. the fractions of the type p/10q, where ‘p’ is an integer, and q = non-negative integer. Decimal Numbers can be represented on a Number Line. To represent 10s, the gap between the whole numbers on the number line is separated into 10 identical elements where every element represents a 10th.

Differential Calculus is centred on the concept of the derivative. Some key points to remember from the chapter are given below.

Integration is the inverse process of differentiation. In the differential calculus, we are given a function and we have to find the derivative or differential of this function, but in the integral calculus, we are to find a function whose differential is given. Thus, integration is a process which is the inverse of differentiation.

From the geometric point of view, an indefinite integral is collection of family of curves, each of which is obtained by translating one of the curves parallel to itself upwards or downwards along the y-axis

A change in the variable of integration often reduces an integral to one of the fundamental integrals. The method in which we change the variable to some other variable is called the method of substitution.
