**1 + 3 = 2**^{2}

^{2}

**1 + 3 + 5 = 3**^{2}

^{2}

**1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 4**^{2}

**And write the value of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 +â€¦â€¦â€¦ up to n terms.**

^{2}

**Solution:**

Number on the right-hand side is square of the number of terms present on the left-hand side.

1 + 3, These are two terms So, 1 + 3 = 2

^{2}Therefore, The value of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 +â€¦â€¦â€¦ up to n terms = n

^{2}(as there are only n terms).

^{2}– 2

^{2}= 3 + 2

**4**^{2} – 3^{2} = 4 + 3

^{2}– 3

^{2}= 4 + 3

**5**^{2} – 4^{2} = 5 + 4

^{2}– 4

^{2}= 5 + 4

**And find the value of**

**(i) 100 ^{2} – 99^{2}**

**Solution:**

According to pattern right-hand side is the addition of two consecutive numbers on the left-hand side.

Therefore, 100

^{2}-99^{2}=100 + 99 = 199

**(ii)111 ^{2} – 109^{2}**

**Solution:**

According to pattern right-hand side is the addition of two numbers on the left-hand side.

But these two numbers are not consecutive

Therefore,

= (111

^{2}– 110^{2}) + (110^{2}– 109^{2})= (111 + 110) + (100 + 109)

= 440

**(iii) 99 ^{2} – 96^{2}**

**Solution:**

According to pattern right-hand side is the addition of two numbers on the left-hand side.

But these two numbers are not consecutive

Therefore,

= 99

^{2}– 96^{2}= (99

^{2}– 98^{2}) + (98^{2}– 97^{2}) + (97^{2}– 96^{2})= (99 + 98) + (98 + 97) + (97 + 96)

= 585

^{2}= 6724

LHS = RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is a Pythagorean.

**(iii) (14, 48, 51)**

**Solution:**

(14, 48, 51)

As 51 is the largest number

LHS = 14

^{2}+ 48^{2}= 2500

RHS = 51

^{2}= 2601

LHS â‰ RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is not a Pythagorean.

**(iv) (10, 24, 26)**

**Solution:**

(10, 24, 26)

As 26 is the largest number

LHS = 10

^{2}+ 24^{2}= 676

RHS = 26

^{2}= 676

LHS = RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is a Pythagorean.

**(v) (16, 63, 65)**

**Solution:**

(16, 63, 65)

As 65 is the largest number

LHS = 16

^{2}+ 63^{2}= 4225

RHS = 65

^{2}= 4225

LHS = RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is a Pythagorean.

**(vi) (12, 35, 38)**

**Solution:**

(12, 35, 38)

As 38 is the largest number

LHS = 12

^{2}+ 35^{2}= 1369

RHS = 38

^{2}= 1444

LHS â‰ RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is not a Pythagorean.
