**Question 4. If the product of two rational numbers is 25/42 and one of them -2(6/7), find the other.**

**Answer :**

Product of two numbers = 25/42

One number = −2(6/7) = -20/7

Then second number = 25/42 ÷ (-20/7)

**Question 5. Divide the sum of 4/13 and −3/2 by their product.**

**Answer :**

**Question 6. Using the appropriate properties of operations of rational numbers, evaluate the following:**

**Answer :**

**Question 7. Find the additive inverse of the following:**

(i) -13(7/8)

(ii) 4(3/6)

**Answer :**

(i) Additive inverse of −13(7/8) = 13(7/8)

(ii) Additive inverse of 4(3/6) = 4(3/6)

**Question 8. Find the multiplicative inverse of the following:**

(i) −23/46

(ii) 0

**Answer :**

(i) Multiplicative inverse of −23/46 is 46/-23 = -2

(ii) Multiplicative inverse of 0 is not defined.

(i) −3/11

(ii) 5/17

**Answer :**

**Question 10. Insert five rational numbers between −3/7 and 2/5.**

**Answer :**

**Question 11. If p = −4/9 , q = 2/3 and r = −8/11, then verily the following:**

(i) p + (q + r) = (p + q) + r

(ii) p × q = q × p

(iii) p × (q + r) = p × q + p × r

(iv) (p + q) ÷ r = p ÷ r + q ÷ r.

**Answer :**

(ii) p × q = q × p

(iv) (p + q) ÷ r = p ÷ r + q ÷ r.

LHS = RHS

**Question 12. A wedding cake weighed 8 kg. If 2/5 th of its weight was flour, 5/16 th was sugar, 1/4 th was cream and the rest were nuts, find the weight of nuts.**
