#### 6. In a class test (+ 3) marks are given for every correct answer and (–2) marks are given for every incorrect answer and no marks for not attempting any question. (i) Radhika scored 20 marks. If she has got 12 correct answers, how many questions has she attempted incorrectly? (ii) Mohini scores –5 marks in this test, though she has got 7 correct answers. How many questions has she attempted incorrectly?

Given,

Marks for every correct answer =

Marks for every wrong answer =

(i) According to question,

Marks obtained by Radhika =

Number of correct answers =

Marks obtained for correct answers =

Marks obtained for incorrect answers = Total marks – Marks obtained for correct answers

Number of incorrect answers =

Therefore, Radhika attempted 8 questions incorrectly.

(ii)

According to question,

Marks obtained by Mohini =

Number of correct answers =

Marks obtained for correct answers =

Marks obtained for incorrect answers = Total marks – Marks obtained for correct answers

Number of incorrect answers =

Therefore, Mohini attempted 13 questions incorrectly.

#### 5. The temperature at 12 noon was 10°C above zero. If it decreases at the rate of 2°C per hour until midnight, at what time would the temperature be 8°C below zero? What would be the temperature at mid-night?

Given,

Temperature at 12 noon =

Final temperature =

Decrease in temperature =

Time taken for the temperature  to decrease by

Time taken for the temperature  to decrease by

#### 3.  Fill in the blanks:                 (a) 369 ÷ _____ = 369            (b) (–75) ÷ _____ = –1                 (c) (–206) ÷ _____ = 1             (d) – 87 ÷ _____ = 87                 (e) _____ ÷ 1 = – 87                (f) _____ ÷ 48 = –1                 (g) 20 ÷ _____ = –2                 (h) _____ ÷ (4) = –3

(a) Given,

A number divided by 1 gives the number itself.

(b)

The product is negative, therefore there must be odd number of negative integers.

(c)

A number divided by itself gives 1

(d)

The product is positive, therefore there must be even number of negative integers.

(e)

A number divided by 1 gives the number itself.

(f)

The product is negative, therefore there must be odd number of negative integers.

(g)

The product is negative, therefore there must be odd number of negative integers.

#### 2. Verify that for each of the following values of a, b and c.      (a) a = 12, b = – 4, c = 2            (b) a = (–10), b = 1, c = 1

(a) a = 12, b = – 4, c = 2

L.H.S =

R.H.S =

Therefore.

Hence verified.

(b) a = (–10), b = 1, c = 1

L.H.S =

R.H.S =

Therefore.

Hence verified.
