Question 1.

### Find the sum by suitable rearrangement : (a) 837 + 208 + 363 (b) 1962 + 453 + 1538 + 647.

Solution :
(a) 837 + 208 + 363
= 837 + 363 + 208 = (837 + 363) + 208 = 1200 + 208 = 1408
(b) 1962+ 453+ 1538 + 647
= 1962 + 1538 + 453 + 647 = (1962 + 1538) + (453 + 647)
= 3500+ 1100 = 4600.

### Find the product by a suitable rearrangement : (a) 2 × 1768 × 50 (b) 4 × 166 × 25 (c) 8 × 291 × 125 (d) 625 × 279 × 16 (e) 285 × 5 × 60 (f) 125 × 40 × 8 × 25.

Solution :
(a) 2 × 1768 × 50
= 2 × 50 × 1768 = (2 × 50) × 1768 = 100 × 1768= 1,76,800
(b) 4 × 166 × 25 = 4 × 25 × 166 = (4 × 25) × 166 = 100 × 166 = 16,600
(c) 8 × 291 × 125 = 8 × 125 × 291
= (8 × 125) × 291 = 1000 × 291 =2,91,000
(d) 625 × 279 × 16 = 625 × 16 × 279
= (625 × 16) × 279 = 10000 ×279 = 27,90,000
(e) 285 × 5 × 60 = 285 × (5 × 60) = 285 × 300
= 85,500
(f) 125 × 40 × 8 × 25 = (125 × 40) × (8 × 25) = 5000 × 200 = 10,00,000.

Question 3.

### Find the value of the following : (a) 297 × 17+297 × 3 (b) 54279 × 92 + 8 × 54279 (c) 81265 × 169 – 81265 × 69 (d) 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 25 × 218.

Solution :
(a) 297 × 17 + 297 × 3 = 297 × (17+ 3)
= 297 × 20 = 5940
(b) 54279 × 92 + 8 × 54279
= 54279 × 92 + 54279 × 8 = 54279 × (92 + 8)
= 54279 × 100 = 54,27,900
(c) 81265 × 169-81265 × 69
= 81265 × (169-69)
= 81265 × 100 = 81,26,500
(d) 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 25 × 218
= 3845 × 5 × 782 + 769 × 5 × 5 × 218 = 3845 × 5 × 782 + (769 × 5) × 5 × 218 = 3845 × 5 × 782 + 3845 × 5 × 218 = 3845 × 5 × (782 + 218)
= 3845 × 5 × 1000 = 19225 × 1000 = 1,92,25,000.

### Question 4. Find the product, using suitable properties : (a) 738 × 103 (b) 854 × 102 (c) 258 × 1008 (d) 1005 × 168.

Solution :
(a) 738 × 103
= 738 × (100+ 3)
= 738 × 100 + 738 × 3 = 73,800 + 2,214 = 76,014
(b) 854 × 102
= 854 × (100 + 2)
= 854 × 100 + 854 × 2 = 85,400+ 1,708 = 87,108
(c) 258 × 1008
= 258 × (1000+ 8)
= 258 × 1000 + 258 × 8 = 2,58,000 + 2,064 = 2,60,064
(d) 1005 × 168
= 168 × 1005
= 168 × (1000+ 5)
= 168 × 1000+ 168 × 5
= 1,68,000 + 840 = 1,68,840.

Question 5.

### A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 liters of petrol on Monday. The next day he filled the tank with 50 liters of petrol. If the petrol costs ₹ 44 per liter, how much did he spend all on petrol?

Solution :
Petrol filled on Monday = 40 litres
Petrol filled the next day = 50 litres
∴ Total petrol filled on the two days = 40 litres + 50 litres = 90 litres
∴ Cost of petrol per litre = ₹ 44
∴ Cost of 90 litres of 7 petrol = ₹ 44 × 90 = ? 3960.

Question 6.

### A vendor’supplies 32 liters of milk to a hotel in the morning and 68 liters of milk in the evening. If the milk costs ₹ 15 per liter, how much money is due to the vendor per day?

Solution :
Milk supplied in the morning = 32 liters
Milk supplied in the evening = 68 liters
∴ Milk supplied per day = 32 litres + 68 litres = 100 litres
Cost of milk per liter = ₹ 15
Money due to the vendor per day = Cost of
100 litres of milk = ₹ 15 × 100 = ₹ 1500.

Question 7.

Solution :

## NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 Whole Numbers Ex 2.3

Question 1.

### Which of the following will not represent (a) 1 + 0 (b) 0 × 0 (c) 02 (d) 10102

Solution :
(a) 1 + 0 = 1 ≠ 0
(b) 0 × 0 = 0
(c) 02
(d) 10102=02=0
Hence, (a) 1 + 0 will not represent zero.

Question 2.

### If the product of two whole numbers is zero, can we say that one or both of them will be zero? Justify through examples.

Solution :
Yes! For example :
2 × 0 = 0
0 × 3 = 0
0 × 0 = 0.

Question 3.

### If the product of two whole numbers is 1. can we say that one or both of them will be 1? Justify through examples.

Solution :
Both of them must be ‘ 1’ as 1 × 1 = 1.

Question 4.

Solution :

Question 5.

### Study the pattern : Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works ? (Hint : 12345 =11111 + 1 1 11 + 111 + 11 + 1). Sol. Next two steps are as follows :

Solution :
Next two steps are as follows :
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543.
