Ques 1: Consider the number 12n, where n is a natural number. Check whether there is any value of n ∈ N for which 12n ends with the digit zero or 5.
Sol:
∵ Any number ending with the digit zero is always divisible by 5.
∴  If 12n ends with the digit zero, then it must be divisible by 5.
⇒ Prime factorisation of 12n must contain a prime factor 5.
Now,
12 = 2 × 2 × 3 = 22 × 3
⇒ (12)n = (22 × 3)n = 22n × 3n
∴  The prime factorisation of 12n does not contain the prime factor 5.
⇒ There is no value of n N such that 12n ends with the digit zero.

Ques 2: If ‘p’ is prime, prove that √p is irrational.
Sol: 
Let p be rational in the simplest form a/b, where p is prime.
∴ a and b are integers having no common factor other than 1 and b ≠ 0.
Now, p = a/b
Squaring both sides, we have
Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev 
⇒ pb= a2      ...(1)
Since pb2 is divisible by p, a2 is also divisible by p.
⇒ a is also divisible by p    ...(2)
Let a = pc for some integer c.
Substituting a = pc in (1), we have
pb2 = (pc)2
⇒ pb= p2c2
⇒ b2  = pc2
pc2 is divisible by p,
∴ b2 is divisible by p
⇒b is divisible by p    ...(3)
From (2) and (3),
p is a common factor of ‘a’ and ‘b’. But this contradicts our assumption that a and b are co-prime.
∴ Our assumption that p is rational is wrong. Thus, p is irrational if p is prime.

Ques 3: Find the HCF of 18 and 24 using prime factorisation.
Sol: Using factor tree method, we have:

∴ 10 = 2 × 5 = 21 × 51
30 = 2 × 3 × 5 = 21 × 31 × 51
120 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 23 × 31 × 51
LCM = Product of each prime factor with highest powers
⇒ LCM of 10, 30 and 120 = 23 × 3 × 5 = 120.

Ques 5: Express Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev as a rational number in the simplest form.
Sol: Let x Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev = 0.666 .....    ...(1)
∴ 10x = 0.666 ..... × 10
= 6.666 .......(2)
Subtracting (1) from (2), we have:
10x - x = 6.666 ..... - 0.666 .....
⇒ 9x = 6
⇒ x = 6/9 = 2/3  
Thus,Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev= 2/3


Ques 6: Express Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev as a rational number in the simplest form.
Sol: Let    x  Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev   = 1.161616 ........(1)
∴ 100x = (1.161616 .....) × 100
⇒ 100x = 116.161616 ........(2)
Subtracting (1) from (2), we have:
100x - x = [116.161616 .....] – [1.161616 .....]
⇒ 99x = 115
⇒ x = 115/99  
Thus,  Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev =115/99

Ques 7: Use Euclid's division algorithm to find HCF of 870 and 225.
Sol: We have 870 = 3 × 225 + 195
225 = 1 × 195 + 30
195 =  6 × 30 + 15
30 =  2 × 15 + 0
∴ HCF (870, 225) is 15.

Ques 8: Find the LCM and HCF of 1296 and 5040 by prime factorisation method:
Sol: 

Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev  and     Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev 
∴ 5040 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 7
= 24 × 32 × 5 × 7  and
1296 =  2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3
= 24 × 34
∴ LCM = Product of each prime factor with highest powers
=  24 × 34 × 5 × 7
= 16 × 81 × 5 × 7 = 45360
HCF = Product of common prime factors with lowest powers
= 24 × 32
= 16 × 9 = 144

Ques 9: Prove that √3 is irrational.
Sol: Let 3 be rational in the simplest form of P/q.
i.e., p and q are integers having no common factor other than 1 and q ≠ 0.
Now,   3 = p/q  
Squaring both sides, we have
(√3)2 = (p/q)2
⇒ 3 = p2/q2   
⇒ 3q2 = p............(1)
Since 3q2 is divisible by 3
∴ p2 is also divisible by 3
⇒ p is divisible by 3 ..........(2)
Let p = 3c for some integer ‘c’.
Substituting p = 3c in (1), we have:
3q = (3c)2
⇒ 3q2 = 9c2
⇒ q2  = 3c2
3cis divisible by 3
∴ q2 is divisible by 3
⇒ q is divisible by 3   ...(3)
From (2) and (3)
3 is a common factor of ‘p’ and ‘q’. But this contradicts our assumption that p and q are having no common factor other than 1.
∴ Our assumption that 3 is rational is wrong.
Thus, 3 is an irrational.

Ques 10: Show that  3√2 is irrational.
Sol: 
Let 3√2 be a rational number
∴ p/q = 3√2 where p and q are prime to each other and q ≠ 0.
∴ p/3q = √2   ...(1)
Since, p is integer and 3q is also integer (3q≠ 0).
∴ p/3q is a rational number.
From (1), √2 is an integer
But this contradicts the fact that √2 is irrational.
⇒ 3√2  is irrational.

Ques 11: Show that 2 - √3 is an irrational number.
Sol: Let  2 - √3 is rational.
∴ It can be expressed as p/q where p and q are integers (prime to each other) such that q ≠ 0.
∴  2 - √3   =  p/q  
Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev     ...(1)

∵ p is an integer}
∴ q is an integer}
⇒ p/q is a rational number.
Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev is a rational number.   ...(2)
From (1) and (2), √3 is a rational number. This contradicts the fact that √3 is an irrational number.
∴ Our assumption that (2 -√3) is a rational number is not correct. Thus, (2 - √3) is irrational.

Ques 12: Using Euclid’s division algorithm, find the HCF of 56, 88 and 404. 
Sol: Using Euclid’s division algorithm to 88 and 56, we have

Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev
3q2 = (3c)2
3q2 = (3c)2
88 = 56 × 1 + 32                  
56 = 32 × 1 + 24
32 = 24 × 1 + 8
24 = 8 × 3 + 0
∴ HCF of 88 and 56 is 8
Again, applying Euclid’s division algorithm to 8 and 404,
we have:
404 = 8 × 504 + 4
8 = 4 × 2 + 0
∴ HCF of 404 and 8 is 4
Thus, HCF of 88, 56 and 404 is 4.

Sol: Let    x    =   Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev 
or x = 5.4178178178 .....
∴ 10x  = 54.178178178 .....    ...(1)
Also  1000 (10x)=    54178.178178178 .....
⇒ 10000x    =    54178.178178178 .....    ...(2)
Subtracting (1) from (2), we have:
10000x - 10x    
= [54178.178178 .....] - [54.178178 .....]
⇒ 9990x = 54124

Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev is a rational number.
3/4 is in the form of p/q , where q ≠ 0  [Here 4 ≠ 0]
∴ 3/4 is a rational number.
Since, the sum of two rational numbers is a rational number.
Therefore, Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev  is a rational number.

Ques 16: The LCM of two numbers is 45 times their HCF. If one of the numbers is 225 and sum of their LCM and HCF is 1150, find the other number.
Sol: One of the numbers = 225
Let the other number = x
Also LCM = 45 (HCF)                 ...(1)
And LCM + HCF =1150
⇒ (45 HCF) + HCF = 1150
⇒ 46 HCF = 1150
⇒ HCF = 1150/46 = 25
From (1),
LCM = 45 × 25
∴ LCM × HCF = (45 × 25) × 25
Now,  LCM × HCF = Product of the numbers
∴  x × 225 = (45 × 25) × 25
Short Answer Type Questions(Part - 1) - Real Numbers Class 10 Notes | EduRev

= 125
Thus, the required number is 125.

∴ 496 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 31
= 24 × 31
806 = 2 × 13 × 31
713 = 23 × 31
⇒ HCF = 31
Thus, the required measure of the biggest container = 31 litres.

Ques 18: Prove that 3+√2 is an irrational number.  
Sol: Let 3+√2 is a rational number.
∴ 3+√2  = a/b such that ‘a’ and ‘b’ are co-prime integers and b ≠ 0.
