In this page we have Important questions for rational Numbers Class 8 CBSE . Hope you like them and do not forget to like , social share and comment at the end of the page.
Question 1
Write the additive inverse of each of the following:
  1. 1
  2. -1/9
  3.  -2/3
  4.     2
  5. -9/1

Answer
(i) 1
Additive inverse = -1
(ii) -1/9
Additive inverse = 1/9
(iii) -2/3
Additive inverse = 2/3
(iv)  2
Additive inverse =-2
(v) -9/=-9
Additive inverse =9

  5. None of the these
Answer
None of these
Question 6
Find the below multiplication
  1.  (-1/2) X  (9/10)
  2. ( 25/-9) X ( 1/3)
  3. (7/24) X 10

Answer
  1. (-1/2) X  (9/10)
= -1 X 9/2 X 10 =   -9/20
     2. ( 25/-9) X ( 1/3)
= (-25/9) X (1/3)
=- 25 X 1/9 X 3= -25/27
    3.  (7/24)X 10
=7X10/24=70/24
Question 7   
Find the following
  1.  (1/2)-1
  2. (3)-1
  3. (-6)-1
  4. (1/-2)-1
Answer
  1. Multiplicative inverse of (1/2)   =2
  2. Multiplicative inverse of (3)   =1/3
  3. Multiplicative inverse of (-6)   =-1/6
  4. Multiplicative inverse of (1/-2)   =-2
Question 8  
The product of two rational number is 2   , if one of the rational number is 1/7  ,what is the value of other?
Answer:
Let a   be the other number, then
a X (1/7) =2
Or
a  =   2 ÷ (1/7)
 a=2X7=14
Question 11
Fill in the blanks
(i)  ____   ÷  (-3)=  (-4/15)
(ii) The numbers __________ and __________ are their own reciprocals
(iii) The reciprocal of   1   is __________.
(iv)   (1/2)   ÷  (2/3)  =__________.
(v) The product of two rational numbers is always a __________.
(vi)  The reciprocal of a negative rational number is __________.

Answer:
  1. 4/5
  2. 1 and -1
  3.  1
  4. 3
  5. Rational Number
  6. Negative rational number
Question 12
Write five rational numbers which are smaller than 5

Answer:
  0,1,2,3,4
Question 13
Find five rational numbers between (1) and 2
Answer:
We can write as
1   = 10/10
2= 20/10
So five rational numbers will be
11/10, 12/10, 13/10,14/10,15/10
