Solution

## (a) Answer: 2 Marks (b) Answer: 1 Mark (a) When we multiply by 13 in denominator and the numerator of 1926 we get 247338, therefore 1926=247338. By inspection, when the numerator is same and the denominator is different then the fraction having a large value of denominator is smaller than the fraction having less value of denominator. Hence, 1926 < 1921. For comparing 1926 and 1316 we have to make the denominator of both the fraction by taking LCM of 26 and 16 = 416. (19×16)(26×16)=304416, (13×26)(16×26)=338416 338>304. Hence, 2632 >1926. (b) A rational number which lies between 12 and 14 is: ⇒12+142 ⇒342 ⇒38  Suggest Corrections  1      Similar questions
