(i) The difference between the smallest natural number and the smallest whole number is _____

(ii) 17 × ___ = 34 × 17

(iii) When _____ is added to a number, it remains the same.

(iv) Division by ____ is not defined.

(v) Multiplication by ____ leaves a number unchanged.

Solution:

(i) 1

Hint: 1 – 0 = 1

(ii) 34

(iii) 0

(iv) 0

(v) 1

Question 2.

Say True or False

- 0 is the identity for multiplication of whole numbers.
- The Sum of two whole numbers is always less than their product.
- Both addition and multiplication are associative for whole numbers.
- Both addition and multiplication are commutative for whole numbers.
- Multiplication is distributive over addition for whole numbers.

Solution:

- False

Hint: 1 is the identity for multiplication - False

Hint: 1 + 1 = 2 > 1 × 1 = 1 - True
- True
- True

Question 3.

Name the property being illustrated in each of the cases given below:

- 75 + 34 = 34 + 75
- (12 × 4) × 8 = 12 × (4 × 8)
- 50 + 0 = 50
- 50 × 1 = 50
- 50 × 42 = 50 × 40 + 50 × 2

Solution:

- Addition is commutative
- Multiplication is associative
- 0 is the additive identity
- 1 is the multiplicative identity.
- Distributivity of multiplication over addition

Question 4.

Use the properties of whole numbers and simplify.

(i) 50 × 102

(ii) 500 × 689 – 500 × 89

(iii) 4 × 132 × 25

(iv) 196 + 34 + 104

Solution:

(i) Using the distributive property of multiplication over addition.

50 × 102

= 50 × 10 + 50 × 2

= 5000 + 100

= 5100

∴ 50 × 102 = 5100

(ii) Using distributivity of multiplication over subtraction

500 × 689 – 500 × 89

= 500 × (689 – 89)

= 500 × 600

= 300000

∴ 500 × 689 – 500 × 89 = 3,00,000

(iii) We know that multiplication is associative

4 × 132 × 25

= 4 × 25 × 132

= 100 × 132

= 13200

∴ 4 × 132 × 25 = 13200

(iv) 196 + 34 + 104

= 196 + 104 + 34 [∴ Addition is associative]

= 300 + 34

= 334

∴ 196 + 34 + 104 = 334

(a) (4237 + 5498) + 3439 – 4237 + (5498 + 3439)

(b) (4237 × 5498) × 3439 = 4237 × (5498 × 3439)

(c) 4237 + 5498 × 3439 – (4237 + 5498) × 3439

(d) 4237 × (5498 + 3439) = (4237 × 5498) + (4237 × 3439)
