Ch-1 Real Numbers Practice Questions For Class 10

Practice Questions

1. Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the square of any positive integer is either of form 3m or 3m + 1 for some integer m.

[Hint: Let x be any positive integer then it is of the form 3q, 3q + 1 or 3q 2. Now square each of these and show that they can be rewritten in the form 3m or 3m + 1.]

Ans. Let a be any positive integer and b = 3.

Then a = 3q + r for some integer q ≥ 0

And r = 0, 1, 2 because 0 ≤ r < 3

Therefore, a = 3q or 3q + 1 or 3q + 2


Where k1k2, and k3 are some positive integers

Hence, it can be said that the square of any positive integer is either of the form 3m or 3m + 1.

2. Express each number as product of its prime factors:

(i) 140

(ii) 156

(iii) 3825

(iv) 5005

(v) 7429

Ans. (i) 140 = 2 ´ 2 ´ 5 ´ 7 = 22´ 5 ´ 7

(ii) 156 = 2 ´ 2 ´ 3 ´ 13 = 22´ 3 ´ 13

(iii) 3825 = 3 ´ 3 ´ 5 ´ 5 ´ 17 = 32´ 52´ 17

(iv) 5005 = 5 ´ 7 ´ 11 ´ 13

(v) 7429 = 17 ´ 19 ´ 23

3. Given that HCF (306, 657) = 9, find LCM (306, 657).

Ans. HCF (306, 657) = 9

We know that, LCM × HCF = Product of two numbers

\ LCM × HCF =306 × 657

LCM = 22338

4. Check whether 6n can end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.

Ans. If any number ends with the digit 0, it should be divisible by 10.

In other words, it will also be divisible by 2 and 5 as 10 = 2 × 5

Prime factorisation of 6= (2 ×3)n

It can be observed that 5 is not in the prime factorisation of 6n.

Hence, for any value of n, 6n will not be divisible by 5.

Therefore, 6n cannot end with the digit 0 for any natural number n.

5. Prove that (3+2) is irrational.

Ans. We will prove this by contradiction.

Let us suppose that (3+2) is rational.

It means that we have co-prime integers a and b (b≠0) such that



⇒  … (1)

a and b are integers.

It means L.H.S of (1) is rational but we know that  is irrational. It is not possible. Therefore, our supposition is wrong. (3+2) cannot be rational.

Hence, (3+2) is irrational.

6. is a

(a) Composite number

(b) Whole number

(c) Prime number

(d) None of these

Ans. (a)and(b)both

7. For what least value of ‘n’ a natural number, is divisible by 8?

(a) 0

(b) -1

(c) 1

(d) No value of ‘n’ is possible

Ans. (c) 1

8. The sum of a rational and an irrational number is

(a) Rational

(b) Irrational

(c) Both (a) & (c)

(d) Either (a) or (b)

Ans. (b) Irrational

9. HCF of two numbers is 113, their LCM is 56952. If one number is 904, then other number is:

(a) 7719

(b) 7119

(c) 7791

(d) 7911

Ans. (b) 7119

10. A lemma is an axiom used for proving

(a) other statement

(b) no statement

(c) contradictory statement

(d) none of these

Ans. a) other statement

(a) prime, co-prime

(b) composite, prime

(c) Both (a) and (b)

(d) None of these

Ans. (a) prime, co-prime

12. is

(a) a terminating decimal number

(b) a rational number

(c) an irrational number

(d) Both (a) and (b)

Ans. (b) a rational number

13. 2.13113111311113……is

(a) a rational number

(b) a non-terminating decimal number

(c) an irrational number

(d) Both (a) & (c)

Ans. (c) an irrational number

14. The smallest composite number is:

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) 3

(d) 4

Ans. (c) 3

15. is

(a) an integer

(b) an irrational number

(c) a rational number

(d) None of these

Ans. (c) a rational number

16. is

(a) a rational number

(b) an irrational number

(c) both (a) & (b)

(d) neither rational nor irrational

Ans. (b) an irrational number

17. (2+) is

(a) a rational number

(b) an irrational number

(c) an integer

(d) not real number

Ans. (b) an irrational number
