The difference of two consecutive prime factors is 6.**Ques 7: The product of three consecutive numbers is always divisible by 6. Verify this statement with the help of some examples. ****Ans: **Among the three consecutive numbers, there must be one even number and one multiple of 3. Thus, the product must be multiple of 6.

Example: (i) 2 x 3 x 4 = 24

(ii) 4 x 5 x 6 = 120**Ques 8: The sum of two consecutive odd numbers is always divisible by 4. Verify this statement with the help of some examples. ****Ans: **3 + 5 = 8 and 8 is divisible by 4.

5 + 7 = 12 and 12 is divisible by 4.

7 + 9 = 16 and 16 is divisible by 4.

9 + 11 = 20 and 20 is divisible by 4.**Ques 9: In which of the following expressions, prime factorization has been done: ****(a) 24 = 2 x 3 x 4 ****(b) 56 = 7 x 2 x 2 x 2 ****(c) 70 = 2 x 5 x 7 ****(d) 54 = 2 x 3 x 9 ****Ans: **In expressions (b) and (c), prime factorization has been done.**Ques 10: Determine if 25110 is divisible by 45. ****[Hint: 5 and 9 are co-prime numbers. Test the divisibility of the number by 5 and 9.] ****Ans: **The prime factorization of 45 = 5 x 9

25110 is divisible by 5 as â€˜0â€™ is at its unit place.

25110 is divisible by 9 as sum of digits is divisible by 9.

Therefore, the number must be divisible by 5 x 9 = 45**Ques 11: 18 is divisible by both 2 and 3. It is also divisible by 2 x 3 = 6. Similarly, a number is divisible by 4 and 6. Can we say that the number must be divisible by 4 x 6 = 24? If not, give an example to justify your answer. ****Ans:** No. Number 12 is divisible by both 6 and 4 but 12 is not divisible by 24.**Ques 12: I am the smallest number, having four different prime factors. Can you find me? ****Ans:** The smallest four prime numbers are 2, 3, 5 and 7.

Hence, the required number is 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210
