=

2. Write the additive inverse of each of the following:

(i)   (ii)   (iii) (iv) (v)

Ans. We know that additive inverse of a rational number  is  such that

3. Verify that  for:

(i)  (ii)

Ans. (i) Putting  in

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, verified.

(ii) Putting  in

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, verified.

4. Find the multiplicative inverse of the following:

(i)  (ii)  (iii)

(iv)  (v)  (vi)

Ans. We know that multiplicative inverse of a rational number  is  such that

(i) Multiplicative inverse of  is

(ii) Multiplicative inverse of  is

(iii) Multiplicative inverse of  is

(iv) Multiplicative inverse of  is

(v) Multiplicative inverse of  is

(vi) Multiplicative inverse of  is  = -1

5. Name the property under multiplication used in each of the following:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

Ans. (i) 1 is the multiplicative identity.

(ii) commutativity property.

(iii) Multiplicative Inverse property.

6. Multiply  by the reciprocal of

Ans. The reciprocal of  is

According to the question,

=

7. Tell what property allows you to compute

as

Ans. By using associative property of multiplication,

we will compute as .

8. Is  the multiplicative inverse of  Why or why not?

Ans. Since multiplicative inverse of a rational number  is  if

Therefore, =  =

But its product must be positive 1.

Therefore,  is not the multiplicative inverse of

9. Is 0.3 the multiplicative inverse of  Why or why not?

Ans.  Since multiplicative inverse of a rational number  is  if

Therefore, =  = 1

Therefore, Yes 0.3 is the multiplicative inverse of

10.Write:
