Q.2. You know that 1/7 = 0.142857. Can you predict what the decimal expansions of 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7, 6/7 are, without actually doing the long division? If so, how?
[Hint: Study the remainders while finding the value of 1/7 carefully.]
Solution:
Q.3. Express the following in the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q 0.
(i)
Solution:
Assume that x = 0.666…
Then,10x = 6.666…
10x = 6 + x
9x = 6
x = 2/3
(ii) [latex]0.4\overline{7}[/latex]
Solution:
[latex]0.4\overline{7} = 0.4777..[/latex]
= (4/10)+(0.777/10)
Assume that x = 0.777…
Then, 10x = 7.777…
10x = 7 + x
x = 7/9
(4/10) + (0.777../10) = (4/10) + (7/90) ( x = 7/9 and x = 0.777…0.777…/10 = 7/(9 × 10) = 7/90)
= (36/90) + (7/90) = 43/90
Solution:
Assume that x = 0.001001…
Then, 1000x = 1.001001…
1000x = 1 + x
999x = 1
x = 1/999
Q.4. Express 0.99999…. in the form p/q . Are you surprised by your answer? With your teacher and classmates discuss why the answer makes sense.
Solution:
Assume that x = 0.9999…..Eq (a)
Multiplying both sides by 10,
10x = 9.9999…. Eq. (b)
Eq.(b) – Eq.(a), we get
(10x = 9.9999)(x = 0.9999…)
9x = 9
x = 1
The difference between 1 and 0.999999 is 0.000001 which is negligible.
Hence, we can conclude that, 0.999 is too much near 1, therefore, 1 as the answer can be justified.
Q.5. What can the maximum number of digits be in the repeating block of digits in the decimal expansion of 1/17 ? Perform the division to check your answer.
Solution:
1/17
Dividing 1 by 17:
There are 16 digits in the repeating block of the decimal expansion of 1/17.
Q.6. Look at several examples of rational numbers in the form p/q (q ≠ 0), where p and q are integers with no common factors other than 1 and having terminating decimal representations (expansions). Can you guess what property q must satisfy?
Solution:
We observe that when q is 2, 4, 5, 8, 10… Then the decimal expansion is terminating. For example:
1/2 = 0. 5, denominator q = 2^{1}
7/8 = 0. 875, denominator q =2^{3}
4/5 = 0. 8, denominator q = 5^{1}
We can observe that the terminating decimal may be obtained in the situation where prime factorization of the denominator of the given fractions has the power of only 2 or only 5 or both.
Q.7. Write three numbers whose decimal expansions are nonterminating nonrecurring.

We know that all irrational numbers are nonterminating nonrecurring. three numbers with decimal expansions that are nonterminating nonrecurring are:

√225 = 15 = 15/1
Since the number can be represented in p/q form, it is a rational number.

Since the number,0.3796, is terminating, it is a rational number.
(iv) 7.478478
Solution:
The number,7.478478, is nonterminating but recurring, it is a rational number.
(v) 1.101001000100001…

Since the number,1.101001000100001…, is nonterminating nonrepeating (nonrecurring), it is an irrational number.

Q.1. Classify the following numbers as rational or irrational:
(i) 2 –√5
Solution:
We know that, √5 = 2.2360679…
Here, 2.2360679…is nonterminating and nonrecurring.
Now, substituting the value of √5 in 2 –√5, we get,
2√5 = 22.2360679… = 0.2360679
Since the number, – 0.2360679…, is nonterminating nonrecurring, 2 –√5 is an irrational number.
(ii) (3 +√23) √23
Solution:
(3 +√23) –√23 = 3+√23–√23
= 3
= 3/1
Since the number 3/1 is in p/q form, (3 +√23) √23 is rational.
(iii) 2√7/7√7
Solution:
2√7/7√7 = ( 2/7)× (√7/√7)
We know that (√7/√7) = 1
Hence, ( 2/7)× (√7/√7) = (2/7)×1 = 2/7
Since the number, 2/7 is in p/q form, 2√7/7√7 is rational.
(iv) 1/√2
Solution:
Multiplying and dividing numerator and denominator by √2 we get,
(1/√2) ×(√2/√2)= √2/2 ( since √2×√2 = 2)
We know that, √2 = 1.4142…
Then, √2/2 = 1.4142/2 = 0.7071..
Since the number , 0.7071..is nonterminating nonrecurring, 1/√2 is an irrational number.
(v) 2
Solution:
We know that, the value of = 3.1415
Hence, 2 = 2×3.1415.. = 6.2830…
Since the number, 6.2830…, is nonterminating nonrecurring, 2 is an irrational number.
Q.2. Simplify each of the following expressions:
(i) (3+√3)(2+√2)
Solution:
(3+√3)(2+√2 )

= 6+3√2+2√3+√6
(ii) (3+√3)(3√3 )
Solution:
(3+√3)(3√3 ) = 3^{2}(√3)^{2} = 93
= 6
(iii) (√5+√2)^{2}
Solution:
(√5+√2)^{2 }= √5^{2}+(2×√5×√2)+ √2^{2}
= 5+2×√10+2 = 7+2√10
(iv) (√5√2)(√5+√2)
Solution:
(√5√2)(√5+√2) = (√5^{2}√2^{2}) = 52 = 3
Q.3. Recall, π is defined as the ratio of the circumference (say c) of a circle to its diameter, (say d). That is, π = c/d. This seems to contradict the fact that π is irrational. How will you resolve this contradiction?
Solution:
There is no contradiction. When we measure a value with a scale, we only obtain an approximate value. We never obtain an exact value. Therefore, we may not realize whether c or d is irrational. The value of π is almost equal to 22/7 or 3.142857…
Q.4. Represent (√9.3) on the number line.
Solution:
Step 1: Draw a 9.3 units long line segment, AB. Extend AB to C such that BC = 1 unit.
Step 2: Now, AC = 10.3 units. Let the centre of AC be O.
Step 3: Draw a semicircle of radius OC with centre O.
Step 4: Draw a BD perpendicular to AC at point B intersecting the semicircle at D. Join OD.
Step 5: OBD, obtained, is a right angled triangle.
Here, OD 10.3/2 (radius of semicircle), OC = 10.3/2 , BC = 1
OB = OC – BC
⟹ (10.3/2)1 = 8.3/2
Using Pythagoras theorem,
We get,
OD^{2 }= BD^{2 }+ OB^{2}
⟹ (10.3/2)^{2} = BD^{2}+(8.3/2)^{2}
⟹ BD^{2 = }(10.3/2)^{2}(8.3/2)^{2}
⟹ (BD)^{2 }= (10.3/2)(8.3/2)(10.3/2)+(8.3/2)
⟹ BD^{2} = 9.3
⟹ BD = √9.3
Thus, the length of BD is √9.3.
Step 6: Taking BD as radius and B as centre draw an arc which touches the line segment. The point where it touches the line segment is at a distance of √9.3 from O as shown in the figure.

= (√5√2)/(52)
= (√5√2)/3
(iv) 1/(√72)
Solution:
Multiply and divide 1/(√72) by (√7+2)

= (√7 + 2)/(√7^{2 } 2^{2}) [denominator is obtained by the property, (a + b)(a  b) = a^{2}b^{2}]
