Question 19.

The digit by which ‘*’ should be replaced in 54 * 281 so that the number formed is divisible by 9 is

(a) 6

(b) 7

(c) 8

(d) 9

Solution:

For a number to be divisible by 9, sum of its digits should be divisible by 9.

Sum of given digits in 54 * 281

= 5 + 4 + 2 + 8 + 1 = 20.

If we add 7, it becomes 27, which is divisible by 9.

∴ * is to be replaced by 7. (b)

Question 20.

The digit by which should be replaced in 7254 * 98 so that the number formed is divisible by 22 is

(a) 0

(b) 1

(c) 2

(d) 6

Solution:

For a number to be divisible by 22, sum of its digits should be divisible by 2 and by 11.

Since, the last digit of 7254 * 98 is 8, which is divisible by 2.

Now,

Sum of the digits at odd places = 7 + 5 + 8 = 20

Sum of the digits at even places = 9 + 4 + 2 = 15

∴ Their Difference = 20 – 15 = 5

Since, 5 is not divisble by 11, so to make a number divisible by 11 we must add 6.

∴ * is to be replaced by 6 (d)

Question 21.

If a number is divisible by 5 and 6 both, then it may not be divisible by

(a) 10

(b) 15

(c) 30

(d) 60

Solution:

60 (d)

Question 22.

The number of common prime factors of 60, 75 and 105 is

(a) 2

(b) 3

(c) 4

(d) 5

Solution:

60, 75 and 105

=2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5 × 7 = 2 (a)

Question 23.

The H.C.F. of 144 and 198 is

(a) 6

(b) 9

(c) 12

(d) 18

Solution:

H.C.F. of 144 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

H.C.F. of 198 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 11

∴ H. C. F of 144 and 198

= 2 × 3 × 3 = 18 (d)

Question 24.

The L.C.M. of 30 and 45 is

(a) 15

(b) 30

(c) 45

(d) 90

Solution:

L.C.M. of 30 and 45 is 90

∴ L.C.M. = 3 × 5 × 2 × 3 = 90 (d)

Question 25.

The L.C.M. of 4 and 44 is

(a) 4

(b) 11

(c) 44

(d) 176

Solution:

LCM of 4 and 44 is 44

∴ L.C.M = 4 × 11 =44 (c)

Question 26.

The LCM of 7 and 13 is 1

(a) 1

(b) 7

(c) 13

(d) 91

Solution:

LCM of 7 and 13 is

LCM of 7 and 13 is 91

L.C.M. = 7 × 13 = 91 (d)

Question 27.

If H.C.F. of two numbers is 15 and their product is 1575, then their L.C.M. is

(a) 15

(b) 105

(c) 525

(d) 1575

Solution:

Product of numbers =1575

H.C.F. = 15

We know,

L.C. M = \(\frac{\text { Product of numbers }}{\text { H.C.F. }}\)

\(=\frac{1575}{15}=105\) (b)

Question 28.

If the LCM of two natural numbers is 180, then which of the following is not the HCF of the numbers?

(a) 45

(b) 60

(c) 75

(d) 90

Solution:

L.C.M. of 2 natural numbers = 180

We know that,

L.C.M. of 2 numbers is always exactly divisible by their H.C.F.

∴ Taking (a) 45 as H.C.F.

Here remainder = 0

∴ 45 is H.C.F.

Now, taking (b) 60 as H.C.F.

Here remainder = 0

∴ 60 is also H.C.F.

Now, taking 75 as H.C.F.

Here, remainder = 30

i. e. remainder ≠ 0

Hence, 75 is not the H.C.F. of two natural numbers whose L.C.M. is 180

Hence, answer is (c).

**Value Based Questions**

Question 1.

To teach the value of gratitude and appreciation to the students, a school organised a ‘Card Making’ activity in which the students were asked to make “THANK YOU CARDS” for the people who helped them in some way. Assorted cards were made with different titles. Their numbers are given below:

T cards for teachers = 120

F cards for friends = 540

S cards for servants = 90

P cards for parents = 240 and

G cards for grandparents = 150

(i) Find the HCF and LCM of all the different number of cards.

(ii) Find HCF and LCM of maximum and minimum number of cards.

(iii) Is the number of T-cards is a factor of number of P-cards?

Solution:

(i) HCF of 120, 540, 90, 240, 150

∴ HCF = 30

Now, LCM of 120, 540, 90, 240 and 150 is

∴ LCM = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5

= 10800

(ii) Maximum number of cards = 540

Minimum number of cards = 90

∴ HCF is as follow :

Hence, HCF of 90 and 540 is 90

LCM of 90 and 540 is as follow :

LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 = 540

(iii) Yes.

T cards = 120

P cards = 240

240 = 120 × 2
