**Question 8 :-**

A man, after a tour, finds that he had spent every day as many rupees as the number of days he had been on tour. How long did his tour last, if he had spent in all ₹ 1,296

**Answer 8:-**

Let the number of days he had spent = x

Number of rupees spent in each day = x

Total money spent = x x x = x^{2} = 1,296 (given)

∴** x= √1296**

4 | 1296 |

4 | 324 |

9 | 81 |

9 |

**⇒ x = √4×4×9×9**

**x = 4 × 9**

**⇒ x = 36**

Hence required number of days = 36

**Question 9 :-**

Out of 745 students, maximum are to be arranged in the school field for a P.T. display, such that the number of rows is equal to the number of columns. Find the number of rows if 16 students were left out after the arrangement.

**Answer 9 :-**

Total number of students = 745

Students left after standing in arrangement = 16

No. of students who were to be arranged = 745 – 16 = 729

The number of rows = no. of students in each row

No. of rows =** √729**

**Question 10 :-**

13 and 31 is a strange pair of numbers such that their squares 169 and 961 are also mirror images of each other. Find two more such pairs.

**Answer :-**

(13^{)2} = 169 and (31)^{2} = 961

Similarly, two such number can be 12 and 21

∴ (12)^{2} = 144 and (21)^{2} =441

and 102, 201

(102)^{2} = 102 x 102 = 10404

and (201)^{2 }= 201 x 201 = 40401

**Question 11 :-**

Find the smallest perfect square divisible by 3, 4, 5 and 6.

**Answer 11 :-**

L.C.M. of 3, 4, 5, 6 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 = 60

2 | 3, 4, 5, 6 |

3 | 3, 2, 5, 3 |

1, 2, 5, 1 |

in which 3 and 5 are not in pairs L.C.M. = 2 x 3 x 2 x 5 = 60

We should multiple it by 3 x 5 i.e. by 15

Required perfect square = 60 x 15 = 900

**Question 11 :-**

Find the least number which must be subtracted from 1205 so that the resulting number is a perfect square.

**Answer 11 :-**

Clearly, if 49 is subtracted from 1205, the number will be a perfect square.

34 | |

3 | 1205 9 |

64 | 305 256 |

49 |

**∴ 1205 – 49 = 1156 and √1156 = 34**

**Question 12 :-**

Find the least number which must be added to 1205 so that the resulting number is a perfect square.

**Answer 12 :-**

Clearly, 1205 is greater than 34^{2}

34 | |

3 | 1205 9 |

64 | 305 256 |

49 |

∴ On adding the required number to 1205, we shall be getting 35^{2} i.e., 1225

∴ The required number = 1225 – 1225 = 20

**Question 13 :-**

Find the least number which must be subtracted from 2037 so that the resulting number is a perfect square.

**Answer 13 :-**

Clearly; if 12 is subtracted from 2037, the remainder will be a perfect square.

∴ 2037 – 12 = 2025 and √2025 = 45

45 | |

4 | 2037 49 |

85 | 437 425 |

12 |

**Question 14 :-**

Find the least number which must be added to 5483 so that the resulting number is a perfect square.

**Answer 14 :-**

Clearly, 5483 is greater than 74^{2}

74 | |

9 | 5483 49 |

144 | 583 576 |

7 |

∴ On adding the required number to 5483, we shall be getting 75^{2} i.e. 5625.

Hence, the required number = 5625 – 5483

= 142

If the square of a number ends with 10 zeroes, how many zeroes will the number have?

**Answer 7 :-**

We know that if a number ends with n zeros Then its square will have 2n zeroes Conversely, if square of a number have 2n zeros at their ends then the number will have n zeroes

The square of a number ends 10 zeroes, then the number will have 10/2 = 5 zeroes

**Question 8 :-**

Is it possible for the square of a number to end with 5 zeroes ? Give reason.

**Answer 8 :-**

No, it is not possible for the square of a number, to have 5 zeroes which is odd because the number of zeros of the square must be 2n zeroes i.e., even number of zeroes

**Question 9 :-**

**Give reason to show that none of the numbers, given below, is a perfect square.**

(i) 2162

(ii) 6843

(iii) 9637

(iv) 6598

**Answer 9 :-**

A number having 2,3,7 or 8 at the unit place is never a perfect square.

**Question 10 :-**

**State, whether the square of the following numbers is even or odd?**

(i) 23

(ii) 54

(ii) 76

(iv) 75

**Answer 10 :-**

(i) 23 – odd

(ii) 54 – even

(ii) 76 – odd

(iv) 75 – even

**Question 11 :-**

Give reason to show that none of the numbers 640, 81000 and 3600000 is a perfect square.

**Answer 11 :-**

No, number has an even number of zeroes.

**Question 12 :-**

**Evaluate:**

(i) 37^{2} – 36^{2}

(ii) 85^{2} – 84^{2}

(iii) 101^{2} – 100^{2}

**Answer 12 :-**

(i) 37^{2} – 36^{2}

Using property, for any natural number n,

(n + 1)^{2} – n^{2} = (n + 1) + n

⇒ (36 + 1)^{2} – 36^{2} = (36 + 1) + 36

⇒ 37^{2} – 36^{2 }= 37 + 36

⇒ 37^{2 }– 36^{2} = 73

^{2}– 84

^{2}

(n + 1)

^{2}– n

^{2}= (n + 1) + n

⇒ (84 + 1)

^{2}– 84

^{2}= (84 + 1) + 84

⇒ 85

^{2}– 84

^{2 }= 85 + 84

⇒ 85

^{2}– 84

^{2}= 169

^{2}– 100

^{2}

(n + 1)

^{2}– n

^{2}= (n + 1) + n

⇒ (100 + 1)

^{2}– 100

^{2}= (100 + 1) + 100

⇒ 101

^{2}– 100

^{2}= 101 + 100

⇒ 101

^{2}– 100

^{2}= 201

**Question 13 :-**

**Without doing the actual addition, find the sum of:**

(i) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 23

(ii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + ……………… + 39 + 41

(iii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + ………………… + 51 + 53

**Answer 13 :-**

(i) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 +23

= Sum of first 12 odd natural numbers = 122 = 144

(ii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + ……………… + 39 + 41

= Sum of first 21 odd natural numbers = 212 = 441

= Sum of first 27 odd natural number = 272 = 729

**Question 14 :-**

Write three sets of Pythagorean triplets such that each set has numbers less than 30.

**Answer 14 :-**

The three sets of Pythagorean triplets such that each set has numbers less than 30 are 3, 4 and 5; 6, 8 and 10; 5, 12 and 13

Proof:

In 3, 4 and 5

3^{2} + 4^{2} = 5^{2}

⇒ 9 + 16 = 25

⇒ 25 = 25

In 6, 8 and 10

6^{2} + 8^{2} = 10^{2}

⇒ 36 + 64 = 100

⇒ 100 = 100

In 5, 12, and 13

5^{2 }+ 12^{2} = 13^{2}

⇒ 25 + 144 = 169

⇒ 169 = 169
