Select the correct answer in each of the following:

1. (-5/16 + 7/12) = ?

1. -7/48
2. 1/24
3. 13/48
4. 1/3

Solution: By solving (-5/16 + 7/12) we get,(-5/16 + 7/12)

By taking LCM for 16 and 12 is 48

(-5/16 + 7/12) = (-5×3 + 7×4)/48

= (-15 + 28)/48

= 13/48

2. (8/-15 + 4/-3) = ?

1. 28/15
2. -28/15
3. -4/5
4. -4/15

Solution: By solving (-5/16 + 7/12) we get,(8/-15 + 4/-3)

Firstly we have multiply both numerator and denominator by -1

(8×-1/-15×-1 + 4×-1/-3×-1) = (-8/15 + -4/3)

By taking LCM for 15 and 3 is 15

(-8/15 + -4/3) = (-8×1 + -4×5)/15

= (-8 + (-20))/15

= (-8-20)/15

= -28/15

3. (7/-26 + 16/39) = ?

1. 11/78
2. -11/78
3. 11/39
4. -11/39

Solution: By solving (7/-26 + 16/39) we get,(7/-26 + 16/39)

Firstly we have multiply both numerator and denominator by -1

(7×-1/-26×-1 + 16/39) = (-7/26 + 16/39)

By taking LCM for 26 and 39 is 78

(-7/26 + 16/39) = (-7×3 + 16×2)/78

= (-21 + 32)/78

= 11/78

4. (3 + 5/-7) = ?

1. -16/7
2. 16/7
3. -26/7
4. -8/7

Solution: Firstly we have multiply both numerator and denominator by -1(3/1 + 5/-7) = (3/1 + 5×-1/-7×-1)

= (3/1+ (-5/7))

By taking LCM for 1 and 7 is 7

(3/1+ (-5/7)) = (3×7 + (-5×1))/7

= (21 + (-5))/7

= (21 – 5)/7

= 16/7

5. (31/-4 + -5/8) = ?

1. 67/8
2. 57/8
3. -57/8
4. -67/8

Solution: By solving (31/-4 + -5/8) we get,Firstly we have multiply both numerator and denominator by -1

(31/-4 + -5/8) = (31×-1/-4×-1 + -5/8)

= (-31/4 + -5/8)

By taking LCM for 4 and 8 is 8

(-31/4 + -5/8) = (-31×2 + -5×1)/8

= (-62 + (-5))/8

= (-62-5)/8

= -67/8

6. What should be added to 7/12 to get -4/15?

1. 17/20
2. -17/20
3. 7/20
4. -7/20

Solution: Let us consider x as a number to be added7/12 + x = -4/15

x = -4/15 – 7/12

By taking LCM for 15 and 12 is 60

x = (-4×4 – 7× 5)/60

= (-16 – 35)/60

= -51/60

We can further divide by 3 we get,

-51/60 = -17/20

7. (2/3 + (-4/5) + 7/15 + (-11/20)) = ?

1. -1/5
2. -4/15
3. -13/60
4. -7/30

Solution: we solve for,(2/3 + (-4/5) + 7/15 + (-11/20))

By taking LCM for 3, 5, 15 and 20 is 60

(2×20 + (-4×12) + 7×4 + (-11×3))/60 = (40 + (-48) + 28 + (-33))/60

= (40 – 48 +28 – 33)/60

= (68-81)/60

= -13/60

8. The sum of two numbers is -4/3. If one of the number is -5, what is the other?

1. -11/3
2. 11/3
3. -19/3
4. 19/3

Solution: let us consider one of the number as x-5 + x = -4/3

x = -4/3 + 5/1

By taking LCM for 3 and 1 is 3 we get,

x = (-4×1 + 5×3)/3

= (-4+15)/3

= 11/3

9. What should be added to -5/7 to get -2/3?

1. -29/21
2. 29/21
3. 1/21
4. -1/21

Solution: let us consider one of the number as x-5/7 + x = -2/3

x = -2/3 – (-5/7)

= -2/3 + 5/7

By taking LCM for 3 and 7 is 21 we get,

x = (-2×7 + 5×3)/21

= (-14+15)/21

= 1/21

10. What should be subtracted from -5/3 to get 5/6?

1. 5/2
2. 3/2
3. 5/4
4. -5/2

Solution: let us consider one of the number as x-5/3 –x = 5/6

-5/3 – 5/6 = x

x = -5/3 – 5/6

By taking LCM for 3 and 6 is 6 we get,

x = (-5×2 – 5×1)/6

= (-10-5)/6

= -15/6

Further we can divide by 3 we get,

-15/6 = -5/2

11. (-3/7)-1=?

1. 7/3
2. -7/3
3. 3/7
4. None of these

Solution: We know that for any real number a≠0 then, a-1= 1/a

∴ By using the formula, (-3/7)-1 = 1/ (-3/7)

= 7/-3

By multiplying both numerator and denominator by -1 we get, 7/-3 = (7×-1/-3×-1) = -7/3
