Solution:

-5 – 4 > -12 + 2

= -9 > -10

∴ -9 is always greater than -10 (b)

true only when the integer is negative (c)

**Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS)**

Question 1.

Can the sum of successor and predecessor of an integer be an odd integer?

Solution:

No, the sum of successor and predecessor of an integer cannot be an odd integer.

Question 2.

What is the sum of all integers from -500 to 500?

Solution:

The sum of all integers from -500 to 500 = -500 + 500 = 0

Question 3.

Find two positive integers such that their product is 1,00,000 and none of them contains 0 as a digit.

Solution:

We shall find the factors of 1,00,000 to find the two positive integers such that their product is 1,00,000.

The factors of 100000 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5

∴ The positive integers which have the product 100000 are

(i) 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 32

(ii) and 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 = 3125
