## 1 Mark Questions

1. Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the square of any positive integer is either of form 3m or 3m + 1 for some integer m.
[Hint: Let x be any positive integer then it is of the form 3q, 3q + 1 or 3q 2. Now square each of these and show that they can be rewritten in the form 3m or 3m + 1.]
Ans. Let a be any positive integer and b = 3.
Then a = 3q + r for some integer q ≥ 0
And r = 0, 1, 2 because 0 ≤ r < 3
Therefore, a = 3q or 3q + 1 or 3q + 2
Or, Where k1k2, and k3 are some positive integers
Hence, it can be said that the square of any positive integer is either of the form 3m or 3m + 1.

2. Express each number as product of its prime factors:
(i) 140
(ii) 156
(iii) 3825
(iv) 5005
(v) 7429
Ans. (i) 140 = 2 ´ 2 ´ 5 ´ 7 = 22´ 5 ´ 7
(ii) 156 = 2 ´ 2 ´ 3 ´ 13 = 22´ 3 ´ 13
(iii) 3825 = 3 ´ 3 ´ 5 ´ 5 ´ 17 = 32´ 52´ 17
(iv) 5005 = 5 ´ 7 ´ 11 ´ 13
(v) 7429 = 17 ´ 19 ´ 23

3. Given that HCF (306, 657) = 9, find LCM (306, 657).
Ans. HCF (306, 657) = 9
We know that, LCM × HCF = Product of two numbers
LCM × HCF =306 × 657 LCM = 22338

4. Check whether 6n can end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.
Ans. If any number ends with the digit 0, it should be divisible by 10.
In other words, it will also be divisible by 2 and 5 as 10 = 2 × 5
Prime factorisation of 6= (2 ×3)n
It can be observed that 5 is not in the prime factorisation of 6n.
Hence, for any value of n, 6n will not be divisible by 5.
Therefore, 6n cannot end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.

5. Prove that (3+2 ) is irrational.
Ans. We will prove this by contradiction.
Let us suppose that (3+2 ) is rational.
It means that we have co-prime integers a and b (b≠0) such that ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ … (1)
a and b are integers.
It means L.H.S of (1) is rational but we know that is irrational. It is not possible. Therefore, our supposition is wrong. (3+2 ) cannot be rational.
Hence, (3+2 ) is irrational.

6. is a
