# Chapter 4: Rational Numbers Exercise – 4.2

### Question: 1

Express each of the following as rational number with positive denominator:

(i)  (-15)/(-28)

(ii)  6/(-9)

(iii)   (-28)/(-11)

(iv)   19/(- 7)

### Solution:

Rational number with positive denominators:

(i) Multiplying the number by -1, we get: -15 – 28 = -15 x -1 - 28 x – 1 = 1528

(ii) Multiplying the number by -1, we get:  6 – 9 = 6x – 1 - 9x – 1 = - 69

(iii) Multiplying the number by -1, we get: – 28 – 11= – 28 x – 1 – 11 x – 1 = 2811

(iv) Multiplying the number by -1, we get: 19 – 7 = 19 x – 1 - 7 x - 1= -197

(iv) - 80 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by - 20)

### Question: 5

Express 2/5 as a rational number with numerator:

(i) -56

(ii) 154

(iii) -750

(iv)  - 80

### Solution:

2/5 as a rational number with numerator:

(i)  - 56 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by -28)

(ii) 154 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by 77)

(iii) – 750 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by -375)

(iv) 500 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by 250)

### Question: 6

Express (-192)/108 as a rational number with numerator:

(i) 64

(ii) -16

(iii) 32

(iv) - 48

### Solution:

Rational number with numerator:

(i)  64 as numerator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by -3)

(ii) -16 as numerator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by 12)

(iii) 32 as numerator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by - 6)

(iv) - 48 as numerator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by 4)

### Question: 7

Express  168/(-294)  as a rational number with denominator:

(i) 14

(ii) -7

(iii) - 49

(iv) 1470

### Solution:

Rational number with denominator:

(i) 14 as denominator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by -21)

(ii) -7 as denominator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by 42)

(iii) - 49 as denominator: (Dividing the numerator and denomintor by 6)

(iv) 1470 as denominator: (Multiplying the numerator and denomintor by – 5)

### Question: 8

(ii) 7 is: (Dividing numerator and denominator by -2)

(iii) 42 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by -3)

(iv) -70 is: (Multiplying numerator and denominator by 5)

### Question: 9

Select those rational numbers which can be written as a rational number with numerator 6: ### Solution:

Given rational numbers that can be written as a rational number with numerator 6 are:

1/22 (On multiplying by 6) = 6/132, 2/3 (On multiplying by 3)

= 6/9, 3/4 (On multiplying by 2)

= 6/8, (-6)/7 (On multiplying by -1)

= 6/(-7)

### Question: 10

Select those rational numbers which can be written as a rational number with denominator 4: ### Solution:

Given rational numbers that can be written as a rational number with denominator 4 are:

7/8 (On dividing by 2) = 3.5/4,

64/16 (On dividing by 4) = 16/4,

36/-12(On dividing by 3) = 12/-4 = -12/4,

16/17 can’t be expressed with a denominator 4.

5/- 4(On multiplying by -1) = - 5/4

140/28(On dividing by 7) = 20/4

### Question: 11

In each of the following, find an equivalent form of the rational number having

common denominator:

(i)  3/4 and 5/12

(ii)   2/3, 7/6 and 11/12

(iii)   5/7, 3/8, 9/14 and 20/21<

### Solution:

Equivalent forms of the rational number having common denominator are:

(i) 3/4 = (3 × 3)/(4 × 3) = 9/12 and 512.

(ii) 2/3 = (2 × 4)/(3 × 4) = 8/12 and 7/6 = (7×2)/(6×2) = 14/12 and 11/12

Forms are 8/12, 14/12 and 11/12

(iii) 5/7 = (5 × 24)/(7 × 24) = 120/168, 3/8 = (3 × 21)/(8 × 21) = 63/168, 9/14

= (9 × 12)/(14 × 12)

= 108/168 and 20/21

= (20 × 8)/(21×8)

=160/168

Forms are 120/168, 63/168, 108/168 and 160/168.
