### 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 42And write the value of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 +â€¦â€¦â€¦ up to n terms.

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 = 22

Therefore, The value of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 +â€¦â€¦â€¦ up to n terms = n2 (as there are only n terms).

### And find the value of

(i) 1002 – 992

Solution:

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

Therefore, 1002 -992 =100 + 99 = 199

(ii)1112 – 1092

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,

= (1112 – 1102) + (1102 – 1092)

= (111 + 110) + (100 + 109)

= 440

(iii) 992 – 962

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,

= 992 – 962

= (992 – 982) + (982 – 972) + (972 – 962)

= (99 + 98) + (98 + 97) + (97 + 96)

= 585

### Question 7. Which of the following triplets is Pythagorean?

(i) (8, 15, 17)

Solution:

(8, 15, 17)

As 17 is the largest number

LHS = 82 + 152

= 289

RHS = 172

= 289

LHS = RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is a Pythagorean.

(ii) (18, 80, 82)

Solution:

(18, 80, 82)

As 82 is the largest number

LHS = 182 + 802

= 6724

RHS = 822

= 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 = 142 + 482

= 2500

RHS = 512

= 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 = 102 + 242

= 676

RHS = 262

= 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 = 162 + 632

= 4225

RHS = 652

= 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 = 122 + 352

= 1369

RHS = 382

= 1444

LHS â‰ RHS

Therefore, the given triplet is not a Pythagorean.

### (1Ã—2) + (2Ã—3) + (3Ã—4) + (4Ã—5) + (5Ã—6)

Solution:

(1 Ã— 2) + (2 Ã— 3) + (3 Ã— 4) + (4 Ã— 5) + (5 Ã— 6) = (5 Ã— 6 Ã— 7)/3 = 70

### And find the values of each of the following:

(i) 1+2+3+4+5+â€¦+50

Solution:

R.H.S = 1/2 [No. of terms in L.H.S Ã— (No. of terms + 1)] (if only when L.H.S starts with 1)

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + â€¦ + 50 = 1/2 (5 Ã— (5 + 1))

25 Ã— 51 = 1275

(ii) 31 + 32 + â€¦. + 50

Solution:

R.H.S = 1/2 [No. of terms in L.H.S Ã— (No. of terms + 1)] (if only when L.H.S starts with 1)

31 + 32 + â€¦. + 50 = (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + â€¦ + 50) – (1 + 2 + 3 + â€¦ + 30)

1275 – 1/2 (30 Ã— (30 + 1))

1275 – 465

810

### And find the values of each of the following:

(i) 12 + 22 + 32 + 42 +â€¦ + 102

Solution:

RHS = 1/6 [(No. of terms in L.H.S) Ã— (No. of terms + 1) Ã— (2 Ã— No. of terms + 1)]

12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + â€¦ + 102 = 1/6 (10 Ã— (10 + 1) Ã— (2 Ã— 10 + 1))

= 1/6 (2310)

= 385

(ii) 52 + 62 + 72 + 82 + 92 + 102 + 112 + 122

Solution:

RHS = 1/6 [(No. of terms in L.H.S) Ã— (No. of terms + 1) Ã— (2 Ã— No. of terms + 1)]

52 + 62 + 72 + 82 + 92 + 102 + 112 + 122 = 12 + 22 + 32 + â€¦ + 122 – (12+22+32+42)

1/6 (12Ã—(12+1)Ã—(2Ã—12+1)) â€” 1/6 (4Ã—(4+1)Ã—(2Ã—4+1))

= 650 – 30

= 620
