(i) 81

(ii) 272

(iii) 799

(iv) 3853

(v) 1234

(vi) 26387

(vii) 52698

(viii) 99880

(ix) 12796

(x) 55555

1 Explanation: Since, 9 ^{2} = 81 |

4 |
9 Explanation: Since 3 ^{2} = 9 |

5 |
6 Explanation: Since, 4 ^{2} = 16 |

6 |
9 Explanation: Since, 7 ^{2} = 49 |

7 |
4 Explanation: Since, 8 ^{2} = 64. So |

8 |
0 Since, 0 ^{2} = 0. |

The following numbers are obviously not perfect squares. Give reason.

- 1057
- 23453
- 7928
- 222222
- 64000
- 89722
- 222000
- 505050

So (i), (ii), (iii), (iv), (vi) don’t have any of the 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, or 9 at unit’s place, so they are not be perfect squares.

So (v), (vii) and (viii) don’t have even number of zeroes at the end so they are not perfect squares.

The squares of which of the following would be odd numbers?

- 431
- 2826
- 7779
- 82004

- 431 square will end in 1,So odd number
- 2826 square will end in 6 ,so even number
- 779 square will end in 1,So odd number
- 82004 square will end in 6 ,so even number

Observe the following pattern and find the missing digits.

Without adding, find the sum.

(i) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9

(ii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + I1 + 13 + 15 + 17 +19

(iii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 23

Explanation:

1 + 3 = 2

1 + 3 + 5 = 3

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 4

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 = 5

So Sum of n odd numbers starting from 1 = n

From the above derivation we can answer the above questions

- Since, there are 5 consecutive odd numbers, Thus, their sum = 5
^{2}= 25 - Since, there are 10 consecutive odd numbers, Thus, their sum = 10
^{2}= 100 - Since, there are 12 consecutive odd numbers, Thus, their sum = 12
^{2}= 144

(i) Express 49 as the sum of 7 odd numbers.

(ii) Express 121 as the sum of 11 odd numbers.

Explanation:

1 + 3 = 2

1 + 3 + 5 = 3

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 4

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 = 5

So Sum of n odd numbers starting from 1 = n

1) Since, 49 = 7

So, 7

1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13

2) Since, 121 = 11

Therefore, 121 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21

How many numbers lie between squares of the following numbers?

(i) 12 and 13

(ii) 25 and 26

(iii) 99 and 100

1) 12

13

Now, 169 - 144 = 25

So, there are 25 - 1 = 24 numbers lying between 12

2) We know that, 25

And, 26

Now, 676 - 625 = 51

So, there are 51 - 1 = 50 numbers lying between 25

3) We know that, 99

And, 100

Now, 10000 - 9801 = 199

So, there are 199 - 1 = 198 numbers lying between 99
