ML Aggarwal Class 9 ICSE Maths Solutions

** ****Question 1. Locate √10 and √17 on the amber line.**

**Ans:**√10

√10 = √(9 + 1) = √((3)^{2} + 1^{2})

Now let us construct:

- Draw a line segment AB = 3cm.
- At point A, draw a perpendicular AX and cut off AC = 1cm.
- Join BC.

BC = √10cm

√17

√17 = √(16 + 1) = √((4)^{2} + 1^{2})

Now let us construct:

- Draw a line segment AB = 4cm.
- At point A, draw a perpendicular AX and cut off AC = 1cm.
- Join BC.

BC = √17cm

**(iii) 23/75**

**(iv) 6/15**

**(v) 1258/625**

**(vi) 77/210**

**Ans: **We know that, if the denominator of a fraction has only 2 or 5 or both factors, it is a terminating decimal otherwise it is non-terminating repeating decimals.

**(i)** **13/3125**

3125 = 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5

Prime factor of 3125 = 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 [i.e., in the form of 2^{n}, 5^{n}]

It is a terminating decimal.

75 = 3 × 5 × 5

Prime factor of 75 = 3, 5, 5

It is a non-terminating repeating decimal.

**(iv) 6/15**

Let us divide both numerator and denominator by 3

6/15 = (6 **÷ **3) / (15 **÷ **3)

= 2/5

**Question 4. Without actually performing the long division, find if 987/10500 will have terminating or non-terminating repeating decimal expansion. Give reasons for your answer.**

**Ans: **Given:

The fraction 987/10500

Let us divide numerator and denominator by 21, we get

987/10500 = (987 **÷ **21) / (10500 **÷ **21)

= 47/500

So,

The prime factors for denominator 500 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5

Since it is of the form: 2^{n}, 5^{n}

Hence it is a terminating decimal.

**Question 5. Write the decimal expansions of the following numbers which have terminating decimal expansions:**

**(i) 17/8**

**(ii) 13/3125**

**(iii) 7/80**

**(iv) 6/15**

**(v) 2²×7/5 ^{4}**

**(vi) 237/1500**

**Ans: **

**(i) **17/8

17/8 = 2.125

**(ii) **13/3125

13/3125 = 0.00416

**(iii) **7/80

7/80 = 0.0875

**(iv) **6/15

Let us divide both numerator and denominator by 3, we get

6/15 = (6 **÷ **3) / (15 **÷ **3)

= 2/5

Since the denominator is 5,

It is terminating decimal.

6/15 = 0.4

**(v) (**2²×7)/5^{4}

We know that the denominator is 5^{4}

It is a terminating decimal.

**(**2²×7)/5^{4} = (2 × 2 × 7) / (5 × 5 × 5 × 5)

= 28/625

28/625 = 0.0448

It is a terminating decimal.

**(vi) **237/1500

Let us divide both numerator and denominator by 3, we get

237/1500 = (237 **÷ **3) / (1500 **÷ **3)

= 79/500

Since the denominator is 500,

Its factors are, 500 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5

= 2^{2} × 5^{3}

It is terminating decimal.

237/1500= 79/500 = 0.1518

**Question 6. Write the denominator of the rational number 257/5000 in the form 2**^{m }× 5^{n }where m, n is non-negative integers. Hence, write its decimal expansion on without actual division.

^{m }× 5

^{n }where m, n is non-negative integers. Hence, write its decimal expansion on without actual division.

**Ans: **Given:

The fraction 257/5000

Since the denominator is 5000,

The factors for 5000 are:

5000 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5

= 2^{3} × 5^{4}

257/5000 = 257/(2^{3} × 5^{4})

It is a terminating decimal.

So,

Let us multiply both numerator and denominator by 2, we get

257/5000 = (257 ×** **2) / (5000 ×** **2)

= 514/10000

= 0.0514

**Question 7. Write the decimal expansion of 1/7. Hence, write the decimal expression of? 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7 and 6/7.**

**Ans: **

Given:

The fraction: 1/7

1/7 = 0.142857142857

Since it is recurring,

**Question 8. Express the following numbers in the form p/q’. Where p and q are both integers and q≠0;**

Since there is one repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

10x = 3.3333…

Now, subtract both the values,

9x = 3

x = 3/9

= 1/3

Since there is one repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

10x = 52.2222…

Now, subtract both the values,

9x = 52 – 5

9x = 47

x = 47/9

Let x = 0.404040

Since there is two repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 100 on both sides, we get

100x = 40.404040…

Now, subtract both the values,

99x = 40

x = 40/99

0.404040… = 40/99

Since there is one non-repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

10x = 4.7777

Since there is one repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

100x = 47.7777

Now, subtract both the values,

90x = 47 – 4

90x = 43

x = 43/90

Since there is one non-repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

10x = 1.343434

Since there is two repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 100 on both sides, we get

1000x = 134.343434

Now, subtract both the values,

990x = 133

x = 133/990

Since there is three repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 1000 on both sides, we get

1000x = 1.001001

Now, subtract both the values,

999x = 1

x = 1/999

**Question 9. Classify the following numbers as rational or irrational:**

**(i) √23**

**(ii) √225**

**(iii) 0.3796**

**(iv) 7.478478**

**(v) 1.101001000100001…**

**Ans: **

**(i) **√23

Since, 23 is not a perfect square,

√23 is an irrational number.

**(ii) √225**

√225 = √(15)^{2} = 15

Since, 225 is a perfect square,

√225 is a rational number.

**(iii) 0.3796**

0.3796 = 3796/1000

Since, the decimal expansion is terminating decimal.

0.3796 is a rational number.

**(iv) **7.478478

Let x = 7.478478

Since there is three repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 1000 on both sides, we get

1000x = 7478.478478…

Now, subtract both the values,

999x = 7478 – 7

999x = 7471

x = 7471/999

7.478478 = 7471/999

Hence, it is neither terminating nor non-terminating or non-repeating decimal.

7.478478 is an irrational number.

**(v) 1.101001000100001…**

Since number of zero’s between two consecutive ones are increasing. So it is non-terminating or non-repeating decimal.

1.101001000100001… is an irrational number.

Let x = 345.0456456

Multiplying by 10 on both sides, we get

10x = 3450.456456

Since there is three repeating digit after the decimal point,

Multiplying by 1000 on both sides, we get

1000x = 3450456.456456…

Now, subtract both the values,

10000x – 10x = 3450456 – 345

9990x = 3450111

x = 3450111/9990

Since, it is non-terminating repeating decimal.

½ = 0.5

So there are infinite irrational numbers between 1/3 and ½.

One irrational number among them can be 0.4040040004…

**(ii) One irrational number between -2/5 and ½**

½ = 0.5

So there are infinite irrational numbers between -2/5 and ½.

**Question 14. Find one rational number between √2 and √3.**

**Ans: **√2 is expressed as 1.4142…

√3 is expressed as 1.7320…

So, one rational number between √2 and √3 is 1.5.

**Question 15. Find two rational numbers between 2√3 and √15.**

**Ans: **√12 = √(4×3) = 2√3

Since, 12 < 12.25 < 12.96 < 15

So, √12 < √12.25 < √12.96 < √15

Hence, two rational numbers between √12 and √15are [√12.25, √12.96] or [√3.5, √3.6].

**Question 16. Insert irrational numbers between √5 and √7.**

**Ans: **Since, 5 < 6 < 7

So, irrational number between √5 and √7 is √6.

**Question 17. Insert two irrational numbers between √3 and √7.**

**Ans: **Since, 3 < 4 < 5 < 6 < 7

So,

√3 < √4 < √5 < √6 < √7

But √4 = 2, which is a rational number.

So,

Two irrational numbers between √3 and √7 are √5 and √6.
