**Q4. The product of two rational numbers is âˆ’8/9. If one of the numbers is âˆ’4/15, find the other.**

**Solution.**

Let the number to be found be x

Hence the number is x = 10/3

**Q5. By what number should we multiply âˆ’1/6 so that the product may be âˆ’23/9?**

**Solution.**

Let the number to be found be x

Hence the number is x = 46/3

**Q6. By what number should we multiply âˆ’15/28 so that the product may be âˆ’5/7?**

**Solution.**

Let the number to be found be x

Hence the number is x = 4/3
