∴ this number is not a perfect square.
8) 798657
Digit at unit’s place = 7
∴ this number is not a perfect square.
Question-3) From the numbers given below which number’s square would be the odd number?
- 541
- 667
- 2558
- 3250
Solution:
We know that, “the square of any odd number will be odd and the square of any even number will be even.”
From the numbers given in question 541 and 667 are odd numbers and 2558 and 3250 are even numbers.
So, the square of 541 and 667 will be an odd number.
Question-4) Find out the missing number by observing the pattern given below.
\(21^{2}\) = 441
\(201^{2}\) = 40401
\(2001^{2}\) = 4004001
\(20001^{2}\) = 400040001
\(2000000001^{2}\) = ________
Solution:
It can be seen from the pattern that in a square of a given number there is equal number of 0’s both the sides of the middle digit 4.
So, it can be said that
\(2000000001^{2}\) = 4000000004000000001
This is the missing number.
Question-5) Find out the value of x by observing the pattern given below.
\(9^{2}\) = 81
\(99^{2}\) = 9801
\(999^{2}\) = 998001
\(9999^{2}\) = 99980001
\(x^{2}\) = 99999980000001
Solution:
It can be seen from the pattern that if a number contain n number of nines than the square of that number is of the form,
(n – 1) numbers of nines then 8 then (n – 1) numbers of zeros then 1
i.e. (n- 1)9’s 8 (n – 1)0’s 1
In the question the \(x^{2}\) = 99999980000001 is given.
This number contains six 9’s and six 0’s.
The number of nines in a square should be (n – 1)
So, here (n – 1) = 6
∴n = 6 + 1
∴n = 7
So, the required number is
x = 9999999
Question-6) Find out the missing number X, Y and Z by observing the pattern given below.
\(6^{2} + 42^{2} + 7^{2} = 43^{2}\)
\(9^{2} + 90^{2} + 10^{2} = 91^{2}\)
\(13^{2} + X^{2} + 14^{2} = 183^{2}\)
\(23^{2} + 552^{2} + 24^{2} = 553^{2}\)
\(36^{2} + 1332^{2} + 37^{2} = 1333^{2}\)
\(16^{2} + Y^{2} + 17^{2} = Z^{2}\)
Solution:
It can be seen from the pattern that,
- The middle number in L.H.S is product of the first and third number.
- The number in the R.H.S is equal to one plus the value of middle number in the L.H.S.
Hence the missing numbers are:
\(13^{2} + X^{2} + 14^{2} = 183^{2}\)
Here, X = 13*14 or (183 – 1) = 182
\(16^{2} + Y^{2} + 17^{2} = Z^{2}\)
Here, Y = 16*17 = 272
And Z = 272 + 1 = 273
Thus, the required numbers are
X = 182
Y = 272
Z = 273
Question-7) Without adding find the sum of the following series.
- 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 12
- 25 + 27 + 29 + 31
- 43 + 45 + 47 + 49
Solution:
Now the “sum of first n odd numbers is \(n^{2}\)”.
1) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 12
Here first six number are six consecutive odd numbers so there sum is
\(6^{2}\) = 36
Thus, the sum of the given series = 36 +12 = 48
2) 25 + 27 + 29 + 31
Here the numbers given are the 13^{th},14^{th},15^{th} and 16^{th} odd numbers
So, there sum is
= \(16^{2} – 12^{2}\)
= 256 – 144 = 112
3) 43 + 45 + 47 + 49
Here the numbers given are the 22^{th}, 23rd, 24th and 25^{th} odd numbers
So, there sum is
= \(25^{2} – 21^{2}\)
= 625 – 441 = 184
Question-8)
a) Show that 81 as a sum of 9 odd numbers.
b) Show 196 as sum of 14 odd numbers
Solution:
a) 81
Now, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 = 81
i.e.
i.e. 81 = \(9^{2}\)
Thus 81 is the sum of first 9 odd numbers.
b) 196
Now, 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 23 + 25 + 27 = 196
i.e. 196 = \(14^{2}\)
Thus 196 is the sum of first 14 odd numbers.

- Given that, XY = 3 mm, YZ = 4 mmthen XZ = ______.
- Given that, XZ= 13 mm, YZ = 5 mmthen XY = ______.
Solution:
1) In \(\triangle XYZ\), \(\angle Y = 90^{\circ}\) is given.
∴ By using “Pythagoras theorem”, we get
\(XZ^{2} = XY^{2} + YZ^{2}\)
\(XZ^{2} = (3mm)^{2} + (4mm)^{2}\)
\(XZ^{2} = (9+16)mm = 25mm\)
\(XZ = \sqrt{(25 mm^{2})} = 5 mm\)
2) In \(\triangle XYZ\), \(\angle Y = 90^{\circ}\) is given.
∴ By using “Pythagoras theorem”, we get
\(XZ^{2} = XY^{2} + YZ^{2}\)
\((13mm)^{2} = XY^{2} + (5mm)^{2}\)
\((13mm)^{2} – (5mm)^{2} = XY^{2}\)

- 225 – 1 = 224
- 224 – 3 = 221
- 221 – 5 = 216
- 216 – 7 = 209
- 209 – 9 = 200
- 200 – 11 = 189
- 189 – 13 = 176
- 176 – 15 = 161
- 161 – 17 = 144
- 144 – 19 = 125
- 125 – 21 = 104
- 104 – 23 = 81
- 81 – 25 = 56
- 56 – 27 = 29
- 29 – 29 = 0
Here, as we get zero at 15^{th} step
Thus, \(\sqrt{225}\) = 15

Question-25) 7225 books are to be kept in a bookshelf of a library in such a way that each column contains as many books as the number of columns. Find out the number of column and number of books in each column.
Solution:
Here, it is given that each column contains as many books as the number of columns.
So, it can be said from the above statement that,
Number of books in each column = Number of Columns
∴ Total number of books = Number of columns * Number of books in each column
∴ Number of columns * Number of books in each column = 7225
\((Number\; of\;books\;in\;each\;column)^{2}\) = 7225
∴ Number of books in each column = \(\sqrt{7225}\)

Question-29) Write a Pythagorean triplet whose one member is
- 12
- 22
- 36
- 28
Solution:
\(x> 1,2x,x^{2} – 1,x^{2} + 1\) forms a Pythagorean Triplet
Where, \(x\in N\)
1) 12
Let us assume \(x^{2} + 1 = 12, then\;x^{2} = 11\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume \(x^{2} – 1 = 12, then\;x^{2} = 13\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume 2x = 12
∴ x = 6
∴ the Pythagorean triplets are \(2*6, 6^{2} – 1 , 6^{2} + 1\) i.e. 12,35,37.
2) 22
Let us assume \(x^{2} + 1 = 22, then\;x^{2} = 21\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume \(x^{2} – 1 = 22, then\;x^{2} = 23\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume 2x = 22
∴ x = 11
∴ the Pythagorean triplets are \(2*11, 11^{2} – 1 , 11^{2} + 1\) i.e. 22,120,122.
3) 28
Let us assume \(x^{2} + 1 = 28, then\;x^{2} = 27\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume \(x^{2} – 1 = 28, then\;x^{2} = 29\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume 2x = 28
∴ x = 14
∴ the Pythagorean triplets are \(2*14, 14^{2} – 1 , 14^{2} + 1\) i.e. 28,195,197.
4) 36
Let us assume \(x^{2} + 1 = 36, then\;x^{2} = 35\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume \(x^{2} – 1 = 36, then\;x^{2} = 37\)
Thus, the value of x will be non-integer.
So, let us assume 2x = 36
∴ x = 18
∴ the Pythagorean triplets are \(2*18, 18^{2} – 1 , 18^{2} + 1\) i.e. 36,323,325.
