Find the largest number that will divide 398, 436 and 542 leaving remainders 7, 11, and 15 respectively.

Hide | Show

Answer :

Algorithm
398 – 7 = 391, 436 – 11 = 425, 542 – 15 = 527
HCF of 391, 425, 527 = 17

If the HCF of 408 and 1032 is expressible in the form 1032 × 2 + 408 × p, then find the value of p.

Hide | Show

Answer :

HCF of 408 and 1032 is 24.
1032 × 2 + 408 × (p) = 24
408p = 24 – 2064
p = -5

HCF and LCM of two numbers is 9 and 459 respectively. If one of the numbers is 27, find the other number. (2012)

Hide | Show

Answer :

We know,
1st number × 2nd number = HCF × LCM
⇒ 27 × 2nd number = 9 × 459
⇒ 2nd number = \frac { 9\times 459 }{ 27 } = 153

Find HCF and LCM of 13 and 17 by prime factorisation method. (2013)

Hide | Show

Answer :

13 = 1 × 13; 17 = 1 × 17
HCF = 1 and LCM = 13 × 17 = 221

Answer :

LCM (3 × 52, 32 × 72) = 32 × 52 × 72 = 9 × 25 × 49 = 11025

Find the LCM of 96 and 360 by using fundamental theorem of arithmetic. (2012)

Hide | Show

Answer :

96 = 25 × 3
360 = 23 × 32 × 5
LCM = 25 × 32 × 5 = 32 × 9 × 5 = 1440
Important Questions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Real Numbers Q9

Find the HCF (865, 255) using Euclid’s division lemma. (2013)

Hide | Show

Answer :

865 > 255
865 = 255 × 3 + 100
255 = 100 × 2 + 55
100 = 55 × 1 + 45
55 = 45 × 1 + 10
45 = 10 × 4 + 5
10 = 5 × 2 + 0
The remainder is 0.
HCF = 5
Important Questions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Real Numbers Q10

Prove that √5 is irrational and hence show that 3 + √5 is also irrational. (2012)

Hide | Show

Answer :

Let us assume, to the contrary, that √5 is rational.
So, we can find integers p and q (q ≠ 0), such that
√5 = \frac { p }{ q }, where p and q are coprime.
Squaring both sides, we get
5 = \frac { { p }^{ 2 } }{ { q }^{ 2 } }
5q2 = p2 …(i)
5 divides p2
5 divides p
So, let p = 5r
Putting the value of p in (i), we get
5q2 = (5r)2
5q= 25r2
q2 = 5r2
5 divides q2
5 divides q
So, p and q have atleast 5 as a common factor.
But this contradicts the fact that p and q have no common factor.
So, our assumption is wrong, is irrational.
√5 is irrational, 3 is a rational number.
So, we conclude that 3 + √5 is irrational.

Prove that 3 + 2√3 is an irrational number. (2014)

Hide | Show

Answer :

Let us assume to the contrary, that 3 + 2√3 is rational.
So that we can find integers a and b (b ≠ 0).
Such that 3 + 2√3 = \frac { a }{ b }, where a and b are coprime.
Rearranging the equations, we get
Important Questions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Real Numbers Q20
Since a and b are integers, we get \frac { a }{ 2b } -\frac { 3 }{ 2 } is rational and so √3 is rational.
But this contradicts the fact that √3 is irrational.
So we conclude that 3 + 2√3 is irrational.

Three bells toll at intervals of 9, 12, 15 minutes respectively. If they start tolling together, after what time will they next toll together? (2013)

Hide | Show

Answer :

9 = 32, 12 = 22 × 3, 15 = 3 × 5
LCM = 22 × 32 × 5 = 4 × 9 × 5 = 180 minutes or 3 hours
They will next toll together after 3 hours.

Two tankers contain 850 liters and 680 liters of petrol. Find the maximum capacity of a container which can measure the petrol of each tanker in the exact number of times. (2012)

Hide | Show

Answer :

To find the maximum capacity of a container which can measure the petrol of each tanker in the exact number of times, we find the HCF of 850 and 680.
850 = 2 × 52 × 17
680 = 23 × 5 × 17
HCF = 2 × 5 × 17 = 170
Maximum capacity of the container = 170 liters.

The length, breadth, and height of a room are 8 m 50 cm, 6 m 25 cm and 4 m 75 cm respectively. Find the length of the longest rod that can measure the dimensions of the room exactly. (2015)

Hide | Show

Answer :

To find the length of the longest rod that can measure the dimensions of the room exactly, we have to find HCF.
L, Length = 8 m 50 cm = 850 cm = 21 × 52 × 17
B, Breadth = 6 m 25 cm = 625 cm = 54
H, Height = 4 m 75 cm = 475 cm = 52 × 19
HCF of L, B and H is 52 = 25 cm
Length of the longest rod = 25 cm

Chapter 1 : Real Numbers

The chapter discusses the real numbers and their applications. The divisibility of integers using Euclid’s division algorithm says that any positive integer a can be divided by another positive integer b such that the remainder will be smaller than b. On the other hand, The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic works on multiplication of positive integers. 10th Maths solution for CBSE makes you prepare for the examination questions and answers.
