**Exercise 1.2 ****Ques 1: ****Write down a pair of integers whose: ****(a) sum is -7 ****(b) difference is -10 ****(c) sum is 0 **

**Ans: **

(a) One such pair whose sum is -7: -5 + (-2) = -7

(b) One such pair whose difference is -10: -2 - (+8) = -10

(c) One such pair whose sum is 0: -5 + 5 = 0**Ques 2: ****(a) Write a pair of negative integers whose difference gives 8. ****(b) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose sum is -5. ****(c) Write a negative integer and a positive integer whose difference is -3. ****Ans: **

(a) (-2) - (-10) = - 2 + 10 = 8

(b) (-7)+2 = -5

(c) (-2) - 1 = - 2 - 1 = -3**Ques 3: ****In a quiz, team A scored -40,10,0 and team B scores 10, 0, -40 in three successive rounds. Which team scored more? Can we say that we can add integers in any order? **

**Ans: **

Team A scored -40,10,0

â‡’ Total score of Team A = -40 + 10 + 0 = - 30

Team B scored 10,0,-40

â‡’ Total score of Team B = 10 + 0+ (-40) - 10 + 0 - 40 = -30

Thus, scores of both teams are same.

Yes, we can add integers in any order due to commutative property.**Ques 4: ****Fill in the blanks to make the following statements true: ****(i) (-5)+(8) = (-8) + (....)****(ii) -53 +... = -53****(iii) 17 +... = 0****(iv) [13 + (-12)] + (....) = 13 + [(-12) + (-7)]****(v) (-4) + [15 + (-3)] = [-4 + 15] + ..... ****Ans:**

Decreasing the temperature every hour = 5Â°C

Room temperature after 10 hours = 40Â°C + 10 x (-5Â°C)

= 40Â°C - 50Â°C

= - 10Â°C

Thus, the room temperature after 10 hours is - 10Â°C after the process begins.

He gets marks for six incorrect questions = 6 x (-2) = -12

Therefore, total scores of Mohan = (4 x 5) + [6 x (-2)]

= 20- 12 = 8

Thus, Mohan gets 8 marks in a class test

**(ii) **Reshma gets marks for five correct questions = 5 x 5 = 25

She gets marks for five incorrect questions = 5 x (-2)=-10

Therefore, total score of Resham = 25 + (-10) = 15

Thus, Reshma gets 15 marks in a class test

**(iii) **Heena gets marks for two correct questions = 2 x 5 = 10

She gets marks for five incorrect questions = 5 x (-2) = -10

Therefore, total score of Resham = 10 + (-10) = 0

Thus, Reshma gets 0 marks in a class test**Ques 8: ****A cement company earns a profit of Rs 8 per bag of white cement sold and a loss of Rs 5 per bag of grey cement sold. ****(a) The company sells 3,000 bags of white cement and 5,000 bags of grey cement in a month. What is its profit or loss? ****(b) What is the number of white cement bags it must sell to have neither profit nor loss. If the number of grey bags sold is 6,400 bags. ****Ans: ****Given: **Profit of 1 bag of white cement = Rs 8

And Loss of 1 bag of grey cement = Rs 5**(a)** Profit on selling 3000 bags of white cement = 3000 x Rs 8 = Rs 24,000

Loss of selling 5000 bags of grey cement = 5000 x Rs 5 = Rs 25,000

Since, Profit < Loss

Therefore, his total loss on selling the grey cement bags = Loss - Profit

= Rs 25,000 - Rs 24,000

= Rs 1,000

Thus, he has lost of Rs 1,000 on selling the grey cement bags.

**(b)** Let the number of bags of white cement be x.

According to question,

Thus, he must sell 4000 white cement bags to have neither profit nor loss.**Ques 9: ****Replace the blank with an integer to make it a true statement: ****(a) **(-3) x _____= 27 ** ****(b)** 5 x _____ = -35**(c) ** _____ x (-8) = -56 ** ****(d) **_____ x (-12) = 132**Ans: ****(a) **(-3) x (-9) = 27**(b) **5 x (-7) = -35**(c) **7 x (-8) = -56**(d) **(-11) x (-12) = 132**Exercise 1.4 ****Ques 1: Evaluate each of the following: ****(a) **(-30) Ã· 10 **(b) **50 Ã· (-5)**(c) **(-36) Ã· (-9) ** ****(d) **(-49) Ã· 49**(e) **13 + [(-2) + 1] ** ****(f) **0 Ã· (-12)**(g) **(-31) Ã· [(-30) Ã·(-1)] **(h) **[(-36) Ã· 12] Ã· 3**(i) **[(-6)+5] Ã· [(-2) + 1]**Ans: ****Ques 2: ****Verify that a+(b + c)â‰ (a+b)+(a Ã· c) for each of the following values of a,b and c. ****(a) a = 12, b = -4,c = 2 ****(b) a = (-10), b = 1 c = 1****Ans: ****(a) **Given:

Putting the given values in L.H.S, = 12 +(-4 +2)

**(b)** Given: aÃ·(b+c)â‰ (aÃ·b) + (aÃ·c)

a = -10,b=1,c=1

Putting the given values in L.H.S. = -10 Ã· (l + 1)

= -10 Ã· (2) = -5

Putting the given values in R.H.S. = [-10Ã·1]+ (-10Ã· 1)

= -10 -10 = -20

Since, L.H.S. â‰ R.H.S.

Hence verified.**Ques 3: ****Fill in the blanks: ****(a) **369 Ã· _____ = 369 **(b) **(-75) Ã· _____ = (-1)**(c) **(-206) Ã· _____ = 1 ** ****(d) **(-87) Ã· _____ = 87**(e) **_____ Ã·1 = -87 **(f) **_____ Ã· 48 = -1**(g) **20 Ã· _____ = -2 ** ****(h) **_____ Ã· (4) = -3**Ans: ****(a) **369 Ã· 1 = 369 **(b) **(-75) Ã· 75 = (-1)**(c) **(-206) Ã· (-206) = 1 ** ****(d) **(-87) Ã· (-1) = 87**(e) **__(__-87)Ã· = -87 ** ****(f) **(-48) Ã· 48 = -1**(g) **20 Ã· (-10) = -2 ** ****(h) **(-12) Ã· (4) = -3**Ques 4: ****Write five pairs of integers (a,b) such that a Ã· b = -3.

If it decreases at the rate of 2^{o}C per hour until mid-night, at what time would the temperature be 8^{o}C below zero? What would be the temperature at mid-night? **

**Ans: **

Following number line is representing the temperature:

The temperature decreases 2^{o}C = 1 hour

The temperature decreases 1Â°C = 1/2 hour

The temperature decreases

Total time = 12 noon + 9 hours = 21 hours = 9 pm

Thus, at 9 pm the temperature would be 8Â°C below 0Â°C.**Ques 6: ****In a class test (+3) marks are given for every correct answer and (-2) marks are given for every incorrect answer and no marks for not attempting any question. ****(i) Radhika scored 20 marks. If she has got 12 correct answers, how many questions has she attempted incorrectly? ****(ii) Mohini scores (-5) marks in this test, though she has got 7 correct answers.****How many questions has she attempted incorrectly? **

**Ans: ****(i)** Marks given for one correct answer = 3

Marks given for 12 correct answers = 3 x 12 = 36

Radhika scored 20 marks.

Therefore, Marks obtained for incorrect answers = 20 - 36 = -16

Now, marks given for one incorrect answer = -2

Therefore, number of incorrect answers = (-16) Ã·(-2) = 8

Thus, Radhika has attempted 8 incorrect questions.

**(ii)** Marks given for seven correct answers = 3 x 7 = 21

Mohini scores = -5

Marks obtained for incorrect answers = = -5-21 = -26

Now, marks given for one incorrect answer = -2

Therefore, number of incorrect answers = (-26) Ã· (-2) = 13

Thus, Mohini has attempted 13 incorrect questions.**Ques 7: ****An elevator descends into a mine shaft at the rate of 6 m/min. If the descent starts from 10 above the ground level, how long will it take to reach -350 m? ****Ans: **Starting position of mine shaft is 10 m above the ground but it moves in opposite direction so it travels the distance (-350) m below the ground.

So total distance covered by mine shaft = 10 m - (-350) m = 10 + 350 = 360 m

Now, time taken to cover a distance of 6 m by it = 1 minute

So, time taken to cover a distance of 1 m by it = 1/6 minute

Therefore, time taken to cover a distance of 360 m

= 60 minutes = 1 hour

[Since 60 minutes = 1 hour]

Thus, in one hour the mine shaft reaches -350m below the ground.
