(d) 625 × 279 × 16
(e) 285 × 5 × 60
(f) 125 × 40 × 8 × 25
Answer
We can make the product calculation easier by making it multiples of 10,100 etc.
(a) 2 × 1768 × 50
Here in this product, the product of 2 and 50 makes multiples of 100 which is easier to multiple with other number
= 2 × 50 × 1768 = 100 × 1768 = 176800
(b) 4 × 166 × 25
Here in this product, the product of 4 and 25 makes multiples of 100 which is easier to multiple with other number
= 4 × 25 × 166 = 100 × 166 = 16600
(c) 8 × 291 × 125
Here in this product, the product of 8 and 125 makes multiples of 1000 which is easier to multiple with other number
= 8 × 125 × 291 = 1000 × 291 = 291000
(d) 625 × 279 × 16 = 625 × 16 × 279 = 10000 × 279 = 2790000
(e) 285 × 5 × 60 = 285 × 300 = 85500
(f) 125 × 40 × 8 × 25 = 125 × 8 × 40 × 25 = 1000 × 1000 = 1000000
Question 3:
Find the value of the following:
(a) 297 × 17 + 297 × 3
(b) 54279 × 92 + 8 × 54279
(c) 81265 × 169 − 81265 × 69
(d) 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 25 × 218
Answer
Here in these question, we can see a quantity common, so we can take it out of bracket and make the calculation easier
(a) 297 × 17 + 297 × 3
Here 297 is common in both the term
= 297 × (17 + 3) = 297 × 20 = 5940
(b) 54279 × 92 + 8 × 54279 = 54279 × 92 + 54279 × 8
Here 54279 is common in both the term
= 54279 × (92 + 8)
= 54279 × 100 = 5427900
(c) 81265 × 169 − 81265 × 69
Here 81265 is common in both the term
= 81265 × (169 − 69) = 81265 × 100 = 8126500
(d) 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 25 × 218
Here we don’t common term as of now, so rearranging little bit as 769×5=3845
= 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 5 × 5 × 218
= 3845 × 5 × 782 + 3845 × 5 × 218
= 3845 × 5 × (782 + 218)
= 19225 × 1000 = 19225000
Question 4:
Find the product using suitable properties.
(a) 738 × 103
(b) 854 × 102
(c) 258 × 1008
(d) 1005 × 168
Answer
We know that
Distributive property |
If a, b and c are any two whole numbers, then a(b+c) = a×b + a×c. |
(a) 738 × 103 = 738 × (100 + 3)
= 738 × 100 + 738 × 3 (Distributive property)
= 73800 + 2214
= 76014
(b) 854 × 102 = 854 × (100 + 2)
= 854 × 100 + 854 × 2 (Distributive property)
= 85400 + 1708 = 87108
(c) 258 × 1008 = 258 × (1000 + 8)
= 258 × 1000 + 258 × 8 (Distributive property)
= 258000 + 2064 = 260064
(d) 1005 × 168 = (1000 + 5) × 168
= 1000 × 168 + 5 × 168 (Distributive property)
= 168000 + 840 = 168840
Question 5
A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 litres of petrol on Monday. The next day, he filled the tank with 50 litres of petrol. If the petrol costs Rs 44 per litre, how much did he spend in all on petrol?
Answer
Quantity of petrol filled on Monday = 40 litres
Quantity of petrol filled on Tuesday = 50 litres
Total quantity filled = (40 + 50) litres =90 Litres
Cost of petrol (per l) = Rs 44
Total money spent = 44 × 90 = Rs 3960
Question 6
A vendor supplies 32 litres of milk to a hotel in the morning and 68 litres of milk in the evening. If the milk costs Rs 15 per litre, how much money is due to the vendor per day?
Answer
Quantity of milk supplied in the morning = 32 l
Quantity of milk supplied in the evening = 68 l
Total of milk per litre = (32 + 68) l
Cost of milk per litre = Rs 15
Total cost per day = 15 × (32 + 68)
= 15 × 100 = Rs 1500
Question 7
Match the following:
(i) 425 × 136 = 425 × (6 + 30 +100) |

(b) Commutativity under addition. |
(iii) 80 + 2005 + 20 = 80 + 20 + 2005 |
(c) Distributivity of multiplication over addition. |
Answer
We Know that
Closure Property |
If a and b are any two whole numbers, then a+b, axb are also whole numbers. |
Commutative property |
If a and b are any two whole numbers, then a+b = b+a and a×b = b×a. |
Associative property |
If a, b and c are any two whole numbers, then (a+b)+c = a+(b+c) and (a×b)×c = a×(b×c). |
Distributive property |
If a, b and c are any two whole numbers, then a(b+c) = a×b + a×c. |
(i) 425 × 136 = 425 × (6 + 30 + 100) which is Distributivity of multiplication over addition Hence, (c)
(ii) 2 × 49 × 50 = 2 × 50 × 49 which is Commutativity under multiplication Hence, (a)
(iii) 80 + 2005 + 20 = 80 + 20 + 2005 which is Commutativity under addition Hence, (b)

(a) 1 + 0
(b) 0 × 0
c) 0/2
d) (10-10)/2
Answer
a) |
1+0=1 |
So it does not represent zero |
b) |
0 × 0=0 |
So it represents zero |
c) |
0/2=0 |
So it represents zero |
d) |
(10-10)/2=0/2=0 |
So it represents zero |
Question 2
If the product of two whole numbers is zero, can we say that one or both of them will be zero? Justify through examples.
Answer
If the product of 2 whole numbers is zero, then one of them is definitely zero.
We can take examples to justify it
For example,
0 × 11 = 0
968 × 0 = 0
0 × 0 = 0
If the product of 2 whole numbers is zero, then both of them may be zero.
Now if we take non zero numbers,
6 × 8 = 48
(Since numbers to be multiplied are not equal to zero, the result of the product will also be non-zero.)
Question 3
If the product of two whole numbers is 1, can we say that one of both of them will be 1? Justify through examples.
Answer
If the product of 2 numbers is 1, then both the numbers have to be equal to 1.
For example, 1 × 1 = 1
However, 1 × 9 = 9 or 12 × 1=12
Clearly, the product of two whole numbers will be 1 in the situation when both numbers to be multiplied are 1.
Question 4
Find using distributive property:
(a) 728 × 101
(b) 5437 × 1001
(c) 824 × 25
(d) 4275 × 125
(e) 504 × 35
Answer
We know that
Distributive property |
If a, b and c are any two whole numbers, then a(b+c) = a×b + a×c. |
(a) 728 × 101= 728 × (100 + 1)
= 728 × 100 + 728 × 1
= 72800 + 728 = 73528
(b) 5437 × 1001 = 5437 × (1000 + 1)
= 5437 × 1000 + 5437 × 1
= 5437000 + 5437 = 5442437
(c) 824 × 25 = (800 + 24) × 25
= (800 + 25 − 1) × 25
= 800 × 25 + 25 × 25 − 1 × 25
= 20000 + 625 − 25
= 20000 + 600 = 20600
(d) 4275 × 125 = (4000 + 200 + 100 − 25) × 125
= 4000 × 125 + 200 × 125 + 100 × 125 − 25 × 125
= 500000 + 25000 + 12500 − 3125
= 534375
(e) 504 × 35 = (500 + 4) × 35
= 500 × 35 + 4 × 35
= 17500 + 140 = 17640
Question 5
Study the pattern:
1 × 8 + 1 = 9
12 × 8 + 2 = 98
123 × 8 + 3 = 987
1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765
Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works?
(Hint: 12345 = 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1).
Answer
Let’s start with first sequence to see how pattern works here
1 × 8 + 1 = 9
12 × 8 + 2 = 98
i.e. (11 + 1) × 8 + 2 = 11 × 8 + 1 × 8 + 2 = 88 + 8 + 2 = 98
123 × 8 + 3 = 987;
i.e. (111 + 11 + 1) × 8 + 3 = 111 × 8 + 11 × 8 + 1 × 8 + 2 = 888 + 88 + 8 + 3 = 987
1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876;
i.e. (1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) × 8 + 4 = 1111 × 8 + 111 × 8 + 11× 8 + 1 × 8 + 4
= 8888 + 888 + 88 + 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765
i.e. (11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) × 8 + 5 = 11111 × 8 + 1111 × 8 + 111× 8 + 11 × 8 + 1 × 8 + 5
= 88888 + 8888 + 888 + 88 + 8 + 5 = 98765
Extending the pattern, we have
123456 × 8 + 6 =
(111111 + 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) × 8 + 5
= 111111 × 8 + 11111 × 8 + 1111 × 8 + 111× 8 + 11 × 8 + 1 × 8 + 5
= 888888 + 88888 + 8888 + 888 + 88 + 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 × 8 + 7 =
(1111111 + 111111 + 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) × 8 + 7
= 1111111 × 8 + 111111 × 8 + 11111 × 8 + 1111 × 8 + 111× 8 + 11 × 8 + 1 × 8 + 7
= 8888888 + 888888 + 88888 + 8888 + 888 + 88 + 8 + 7 = 9876543
