Real numbers – Exercise 3.2  – Solutions:

1) Express each number as a product of prime factors.

i)120

ii)3825

iii)6762

iv)32844

Solution:

(i)

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

120 = 23 x 3 x 5

 

(ii)

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

3825 = 32 x 52 x 17

 

(iii)

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

6762  = 22 x 32 x 72

 

(iv)

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

32844 = 22 x 3 x 7 x 17 x 23


2) If 25025 = p1x1, p2x2, p3x3,p4x4 find the value of p1, p2, p3, p4 and x1, x2, x3, x4

Solution:

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

25025 = 52 x 71 x 111 x 131

Given, 25025 = p1x1, p2x2, p3x3,p4x4

Therefore, p1x1= 5 , p2x2= 71 , p3x3= 111 ,p4x4 = 131 and x1 = 2, x2 = 1, x3 = 1, x4 = 1.


3.Find LCM and HCF of the following integers by expressing them as product of primes.

(i) 12, 15 and 30

(ii) 18, 81 and 108

Solution:

(i) 12, 15 and 30

12 = 4 x 3 = 22 x 3

15 = 5 x 3

30 = 3 x 2 x 5

Therefore, LCM = 60 and HCF = 3

 

(ii) 18, 81 and 108

18 = 3 x 3 x 2 = 32 x 2

81 = 9 x 9 = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 34

108 = 3 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 = 22 x 33

Therefore, LCM = 9 and HCF = 34 x 22 = 324


4) Find the HCF and LCM of the pairs of integers and verify that LCM(a, b) x HCF(a, b) = a x b

(i) 16 and 80

(ii)125 and 55

Solution:

(i) 16 and 80

a = 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 24

b = 80 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 15 = 24 x 5

LCM (16, 80) = 80

HCF (16, 80) = 16

LCM (16, 80) x HCF (16, 80) = a x b

80 x 16 = 16 x 80

1280 = 1280

 

(ii)125 and 55

a = 125 = 53

b = 55 = 5 x 11

LCM(125, 55) = 5 x 5 x 5 x 11 = 1375

HCF (125, 55) = 5

LCM(125, 55) x HCF (125, 55) = a x b

1375 x 5 = 125 x55

6875 = 6875


  1. If HCF of 52 and 182 is 26, find their LCM.

Solution:

We know, HCF x LCM = a x b

We have, a = 52 and b = 182

26 x LCM = 52 x 182

26 x LCM = 9464

LCM = 9464/26 = 364


  1. Find the HCF of 105 and 1515 by prime factorization method and hence find its LCM

Solution:

Real Numbers – Exercise 3.2 – Class X

105 = 5  x 3 x  7

1515 = 5 x 3 x 101

HCF (105, 1515) = 3 x 5 = 15

HCF x LCM = a x b

15 x LCM = 105 x 1515

LCM = 10605


  1. Find the smallest number which when increased by 17 is exactly divisible by both 520 and 468

Solution:

520 = 52  X 10

468 = 52 X 9

LCM = 52 X 10

LCM  =  52 x  10 x 9 = 4680

The smallest number which when increased by 17 which is exactly divisible by 520 & 468 is 4680 – 17 = 4663.


  1. A rectangular hall is 18m 72cm long & 13m 20cm broad. It is to be paved with square tiles of the same size. Find the least possible number of such tiles.

Solution:

Area of rectangle = l x b = 1872 X 1320 = 24 X 32 X 13 X  23 X 3  X 5  X 11

HCF = 23 X  3 = 24

The greatest possible length of square tiles = 24

The least possible lengths of such tiles = 78 X 55 = 4290
