Miscellaneous Practice problems

Question 1.
Find HCF of 188 and 230 by Euclid’s game.
Solution:
By Euclid’s game HCF (a, b) = HCF (a, a – b) if a > b.
Here HCF (188, 230) = HCF (230, – 188) because 230 > 188
= HCF (188, 42) = HCF (146, 42)
= HCF (104, 42) = HCF (62, 42)
= HCF (42, 20) = HCF (22, 20)
= HCF (20,2) = HCF (18, 2) = 2
∴ HCF (230, 188) = 2

Question 2.
Write the numbers from 1 to 50. From that find the following.
(i) The numbers which are neither divisible by 2 nor 7.
(ii) The prime numbers between 25 and 40.
(iii) All square number upto 50.
Solution :
(i) 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47
(ii) 29, 31, 37
(iii) 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49

(ii)

Question 4.
Complete the table by using the following instructions.
A : It is the 6th term in the Fibonacci sequence.
B : The predecessor of 2.
C : LCM of 2 and 3.
D : HCF of 6 and 20.
E : The reciprocal of 1/5.
F : The opposite number of -7.
G : The first composite number.
H : Area of a square of side 3 cm.
I : The number of lines of symmetry of an equilateral triangle. After completing the table, what do you observe? Discuss.

Solution:
A : 6th term in Fibonacci sequence is 8.
B : Predecessor of 2 is 1.
C : LCM of 2 and 3 is 6.
D : HCF of 6 and 20 is 2.
E : Reciprocal of $$\frac{1}{5}$$ is 5.
F : Opposite number of – 7 is 7.
G : The first composite number is 4.
H : Area of square of side 3 cm is 3 × 3 = 9 cm2.
I : The number of lines of symmetry of an equilateral triangle is 3.
∴ The table becomes

From the table we observe that the numbers are from 1 to 9
