## Exercise 3A PAGE NO: 45

**1. Write the next three whole numbers after 30999.**

**Solution**

31000, 31001 and 31002 are the next three whole numbers after 30999

**2. Write the three whole numbers occurring just before 10001**.

**Solution**

To find three whole numbers just occurring before 10001.Subtract 1 from each number

10001 â€“ 1 = 10000

10000 â€“ 1 = 9999

9999 â€“ 1 = 9998

Hence 10000, 9999 and 9998 are the numbers occurring just before 10001

**3. How many whole numbers are there between 1032 and 1209?**

**Solution**

To find the whole numbers between 1032 and 1209

(1209 â€“ 1032) â€“ 1 = 177 â€“ 1

= 176

Hence 176 is the whole number between 1032 and 1209

**4. Which is the smallest whole number?**

**Solution**

Since all natural numbers considering 0 are whole numbers

Hence 0 is the smallest whole number

**(v) 53501 + (574 + 799) = 574 + (53501 + â€¦..)**

**Solutions**

(i) 458 + 639 = 639 + 458

(ii) 864 + 2006 = 2006 + 864

(iii) 1946 + 984 = 984 + 1946

(iv) 8063 + 0 = 8063

(v) 53501 + (574 + 799) = 574 + (53501 + 799)

**2. Add the following numbers and check by reversing the order of the addends:**

**(i)16509 + 114 (ii) 2359 + 548 (iii) 19753 +2867**

**Solution**

(i)16509 + 114

16509 + 114 = 16623

Reversing the order of the addends, we get

114 + 16509 = 16623

âˆ´ 16509 + 114 = 114 + 16509

(ii) 2359 + 548

2359 + 548 = 2907

Reversing the order of the addends, we get

2867 + 19753 = 22620

âˆ´ 19753 + 2867 = 2867 + 19753

**3. Find the sum: (1546 + 498) + 3589 **

**Also, find the sum: 1546 + (498 + 3589). Are the two sums equal? State the property satisfied.**

**Solution**

We have

(1546+ 498) + 3589 = 2044 + 3589

= 5633

1546 + (498 + 3589) = 1546 + 4087

**(a) 4 (b) 6 (c) 8 (d) 20**

**Solution**

To find the least number which is subtracted from 1004 to get a number exactly divisible by 12

First we need to divide 1004 by 12

Since the remainder is 8.

8 should be subtracted from1004 to get a number exactly divisible by 12

That implies 1004 â€“ 8 = 9996

âˆ´ 9996 is exactly divisible by 12

Hence option (c) is the correct answer

**5. What least number should be added to 10056 to get a number exactly divisible by 23?**

**(a) 5 (b) 18 (c) 13 (d) 10**

**Solution**

First divide the 10056 by 23 to get a number added to 10056

Since 5 is the remainder

Subtract 5 from 23 to get required number

Required number = 23â€“ 5 = 18

âˆ´ 18 must be added to10056 to get a least number which is exactly divisible by 23

10056 + 18 = 10074

Hence 10074 is exactly divisible by 23

âˆ´ Option (b) is the correct answer

**6. What whole number is nearest to 457 which is divisible by 11?**

(d) 462

âˆ´ 462 is exactly divisible by 11

Here both 451 and 462 are divisible by 11

Since we want nearest whole number to 457

Hence 462 is the nearest whole number to 457 which is divisible by 11

Hence option (d) is the correct answer

**7. How many whole numbers are there between 1018 and 1203?**

**(a) 185 (b) 186 (c) 184 (d) none of these**

**Solution**

Number of whole numbers is calculated as

= (1203 â€“ 1018) â€“ 1

**9. In a division sum, we have dividend = 199, quotient = 16 and remainder = 7. **

**The divisor is **

**(a) 11 (b) 23 (c) 12 (d) none of these**

**Solution**

Here given numbers are

Dividend = 199

Quotient = 16

Remainder = 7

Using division algorithm we have

Dividend = Divisor Ã— Quotient + Remainder

199 = Divisor Ã— 16 + 7

199 â€“ 7 = Divisor Ã— 16

192 = Divisor Ã— 16

Hence Divisor = 192 Ã· 16

âˆ´ 12 is the correct answer

Option (c) is the correct answer
