**TYPES OF NUMBERS**

- Integers : All numbers whose fractional part is 0 (zero) like -3, -2, 1, 0, 10, 100 are integers.
- Natural Numbers : Counting numbers like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 … Basically, all integers greater than 0 are natural numbers … More on Numbers

Question 2 Explanation:

3, 9, 27, 81..............531441 form a G.P. with a = 3 and r = 9/3 = 3 Let the number of terms be n Then 3 x 3^{n-1}= 531441 ∴ 3^{n}= 3^{12}∴ n = 12

Question 3 Explanation:

Let the numbers be x, x+2, x+4 and x+6 Then (x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6)/4 = 12 ∴ 4x + 12 = 48 ∴ x = 9

Question 4 |

If the sum of two numbers is 13 and the sum of their square is 85. Find the numbers?

6 & 7 | |

Question 4 Explanation:

Let the numbers be x and 13-x
Then x

^{2}+ (13 – x)^{2}= 85 ∴ x^{2}+ 169 + x^{2}– 26x = 85 ∴ 2 x^{2}– 26x + 84 = 0 ∴ x^{2}– 13x + 42 = 0 ∴ (x-6)(x-7)=0 Hence numbers are 6 & 7Question 5 |

Question 5 Explanation:

Let the ten’s digit be x and unit’s digit be y Then (10x + y) – (10y + x) = 45 9(x – y) = 45 x – y = 5

Question 6 |

A two-digit number is such that the product of the digits is 12. When 9 is subtracted from the number, the digits are reversed. The number is:

Question 6 Explanation:

Let the ten’s and unit’s digit be x and y. Then 10x + - 9 = 10 x + x 10x2 + 12 -9x = 120 + x2 9x2 – 9x – 108 = 0 x2 –x – 12 = 0 x2 –4x + 3x – 12 = 0 (x – 4) (x + 3) = 0 Therefore x = 4 Hence the required no. is 43

Question 7 Explanation:

Let the number be x. Then x + 16 = 80 * (1/x) x^{2}+ 16x – 80 = 0 x^{2}+ 20x – 4x – 80 =0 (x + 20) (x -4) Therefore x = 4

Question 8 Explanation:

Let the no. be x and (x +2). Then (x +2)2 – x2 = 56 4x + 4 = 56 x + 1 = 14 x = 13 Sum of numbers = x + (x +2) = 28

Question 9 |

The product of two numbers is 108 and the sum of their squares is 225. The difference of the number is:

Question 9 Explanation:

Let the numbers be x and y. Then xy = 108 and x^{2}+ y^{2}= 225 (x –y)^{2}= x^{2}+ y^{2}– 2xy (x –y)^{2}= 225 – 216 (x –y)^{2}= 9 Therefore (x –y) = 3

Question 10 Explanation:

11'th result = sum of 21 results – sum of 20 results = 21 x 20 – (24 x 10 + 14 x 10) = 420 – (240 + 140) = 420- 380 = 40
