**3. Replace each * by the correct digit in each of the following:**

**(i) **

**(ii) **

**(iii) **

**(iv) **

**(v) **

**(vi) **

**Solution:**

(i) We know that in the units digit

6 – * = 7 where the value of * is 9 as 1 gets carried from 7 at tens place to 6 at units place

6 at the units place becomes 16 so 16 – 9 = 7

When 7 is reduced by 1 it gives 6 so 6 – 3 = 3

We know that

8 – * = 6 so we get * value as 2

(ii) We know that in the units digit

9 – 4 = 5

Tens digit 8 – 3 = 5

So the missing blank can be found by subtracting 3455 from 8989

Difference between them = 3455

So the answer is

(iii) We know that in units digit

17 – 8 = 9

Tens digit = 9 – 7 = 2

So we get

Hundreds place 10 – 9 = 1

Thousands place 9 – 8 = 1

So the addend difference = 5061129

Subtract 5061129 from 6000107 to get addend

So the answer is

(iv) We know that in units digit

10 – 1 = 9

Lakhs place 9 – 0 = 9

So the addend difference = 970429

Subtract 970429 from 1000000 to get the addend

So the correct answer is

(v) We know that in units digit

13 – 7 = 6

Tens digit 9 – 8 = 1

Hundreds place 9 – 9 = 0

Thousands place 10 – 6 = 4

So the addend difference = 4844016

Subtract 4844016 from 5001003 to get the addend

So the answer is

(vi) We know that units digit

11 – 9 = 2

So the addend difference = 54322

Subtract 54322 from 111111 to get the addend

So the answer is

**4. What is the difference between the largest number of five digits and the smallest number of six digits?**

Therefore, 1 is the difference between the largest number of five digits and smallest number of six digits.

**5. Find the difference between the largest number of 4 digits and the smallest number of 7 digits.**

**Solution:**

9999 is the largest number of 4 digits

1000000 is the smallest number of 6 digits

Difference = 1000000 – 9999 = 990001

Therefore, 990001 is the difference between the largest number of 4 digits and the smallest number of 7 digits.

**6. Rohit deposited Rs 125000 in his savings bank account. Later he withdrew Rs 35425 from it. How much money was left in his account?**

**Solution:**

Money withdrawn = Rs 35425

So the money which is left out in his account = 125000 – 35425 = Rs 89575

Hence, Rs 89575 is left in his account.

**7. The population of a town is 96209. If the number of men is 29642 and that of women is 29167, determine the number of children.**

**Solution:**

Population of a town = 96209

No. of men = 29642

No. of women = 29167

Total number of men and women = 29642 + 29167 = 58809

So the number of children = Population of a town – Total number of men and women

Number of children = 96209 – 58809 = 37400

Hence, there are 37400 children.

**8. The digits of 6 and 9 of the number 36490 are interchanged. Find the difference between the original number and the new number.**

**Solution:**

It is given that

Original Number = 39460

Number after interchanging 6 and 9 = 36490

Difference between them = 39460 – 36490 = 2790

Therefore, the difference between the original number and new number is 2970.

**9. The population of a town was 59000. In one year it was increased by 4536 due to new births. However, 9218 persons died or left the town during the year. What was the population at the end of the year?**

**Solution:**

Population of a town = 59000

Population increase = 4536

Population decrease = 9218

So the population at the end of year = 59000 + 4536 – 9218 = 54318

Therefore, the population at the end of the year is 54318.

It can be written as

= 19820 × (100 + 25)

By using distributivity of multiplication over addition of whole numbers

= (19820 × 100) + (19820 × 25)

On further calculation

= 1982000 + 495500

So we get

= Rs 2477500

**9. The annual fee charged from a student of class VI in a school is Rs 8880. If there are, in all, 235 students in class VI, find the total collection.**

**13. In a large housing complex, there are 15 small buildings and 22 large building. Each of the large buildings has 10 floors with 2 apartments on each floor. Each of the small buildings has 12 floors with 3 apartments on each floor. How many apartments are there in all.**

**Solution:**

It is given that

No. of large buildings = 22

No. of small buildings = 15

No. of floors in 1 large building = 10

No. of apartments on 1 floor = 2

So total apartment in 1 large building = 10 × 2 = 20

The same way

No. of apartments in 1 small building = 12 × 3 = 36

So the total apartment in entire housing complex = (22 × 20) + (15 × 36) = 440 + 540 = 980

Therefore, there are 980 apartments in all.

**Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:**

**1. Which one of the following is the smallest whole number?
(a) 1 (b) 2 (c) 0 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is correct answer.

We know that the set of whole numbers is {0, 1, 2, 3, 4 …}.

Hence, the smallest whole number is 0.

**2. Which one of the following is the smallest even whole number?
(a) 0 (b) 1 (c) 2 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is correct answer.

We know that the natural numbers along with 0 form the collection of whole numbers.

Hence, the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 … form the collection of whole numbers.

So the number which is divisible by 2 is an even number and 2 is the smallest even number.

**3. Which one of the following is the smallest odd whole number?
(a) 0 (b) 1 (c) 3 (d) 5**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is correct answer.

We know that the natural numbers along with 0 form the collection of whole numbers.

Hence, the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 … form the collection of whole numbers.

So the natural number which is not divisible by 2 is called an odd whole number and 1 is the smallest odd whole number.

**4. How many whole numbers are between 437 and 487?
(a) 50 (b) 49 (c) 51 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is correct answer.

We know that the whole numbers between 437 and 487 are 438, 439, 440, 441, …, 484, 485 and 486.

In order to find the required number of whole numbers subtract 437 from 487 and then subtract again 1.

Hence, there are (487 − 437) − 1 whole numbers lying between 437 and 487.

So we get (487 − 437) − 1 = 50 − 1 = 49

**5. The product of the successor of 999 and the predecessor of 1001 is
(a) one lakh (b) one billion (c) one million (d) one crore**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is correct answer.

We know that the successor of 999 = 999 + 1 = 1000

So the predecessor of 1001 = 1001 − 1 = 1000

It can be written as

Product of them = (Successor of 999) × (Predecessor of 1001)

By substituting the values

Product of them = 1000 × 1000 = 1000000 = one million

**6. Which one of the following whole numbers does not have a predecessor?
(a) 1 (b) 0 (c) 2 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is correct answer.

We know that the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 … form the collection of whole numbers.

Hence, the smallest whole number is 0 which does not have a predecessor.

**7. The number of whole numbers between the smallest whole number and the greatest 2-digit number is
(a) 101 (b) 100 (c) 99 (d) 98**

**Solution:**

The option (d) is correct answer.

We know that the smallest whole number = 0

So the greatest 2 digit whole number = 99

Whole numbers which lie between 0 and 99 are 1, 2, 3, 4,…, 97, 98.

In order to find the number of whole numbers between 0 and 99, first subtract 1 from the difference of 0 and 99.

So the number of whole numbers between 0 and 99 = (99 − 0) − 1 = 99 − 1 = 98

**8. If n is a whole number such that n + n = n, then n =?
(a) 1 (b) 2 (c) 3 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (d) is correct answer.

We know that 0 + 0 = 0, 1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 2 = 4….

Hence, the statement n + n = n is true only when n = 0.

**9. The predecessor of the smallest 3-digit number is
(a) 999 (b) 99 (c) 100 (d) 101**

It is given that

Divisor = 53, Quotient = 8 and Remainder = 5.

By using the relation we get

Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder

By substituting the values

Dividend = 53 × 8 + 5 = 424 + 5 =429

Hence, the required number is 429.

**12. The whole number n satisfying n + 35 = 101 is
(a) 65 (b) 67 (c) 64 (d) 66**

**Solution:**

The option (d) is correct answer.

It is given that

n + 35 = 101

By adding − 35 on both sides

n + 35 + (− 35) = 101 + (− 35)

4 × 378 × 25 = 100 × 378 = 37800

**14. The value of 1735 × 1232 − 1735 × 232 is
(a) 17350 (b) 173500 (c) 1735000 (d) 173505**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is correct answer.

By using the distributive law of multiplication over subtraction

1735 × 1232 − 1735 × 232 = 1735(1232 − 232)

On further calculation

1735 × 1232 − 1735 × 232 = 1735 × 1000 = 1735000

**15. The value of 47 × 99 is
(a) 4635 (b) 4653 (c) 4563 (d) 6453**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is correct answer.

It can be written as

99 = 100 − 1

So we get

47 × 99 = 47 × (100 − 1)

On further calculation

47 × 99 = 47× 100 – 47 = 4700 – 47 = 4653

Hence, the value of 47 × 99 is 4653.
