c) 0/ (-13)

7. Fill in the blanks:

a) 65/—- = 65

b) (-21)/ —- = -1

c) 10/ —- = -2

8. In a test containing 10 questions, (+5) marks are given for every correct answer and (-2) marks are given for every incorrect answer.

a) Lalitha gets five correct and five incorrect answers. What is her score?

b) Nalini gets six correct and four incorrect answers. What is her score?

9. The sum of two integers is 125. If one of them is -28, find the other integers.

10. If a = -6, b= 4 and c = -2, verify that:

a) a+ (b +c) = (a +b) +c

b) a x (b +c) = a x b + a x c

**ANSWERS:**

1. a) (-10) and 5.

b) (-10) and (-2)

c) (-5) and +5

2. (-10) and (-16)

3. a) (-2) + (-4) = (-4) + (-2)

b) (-24) + 0 = – 24

c) 12 + (-12) = 0

4. a)(-6) x 4 x 8 = -192

b) (-1) x (-4) x (-5) = -20

c) (-10) x (-4) x 0 = 0

5. a) (-2) x (-8) = 16

b) 4 x (-6) = -24

c) (-5) x (-4) = 20

6. a)-40/10 = -4

b) 20/ -4 = -5

c) 0/ -13 = 0

7. a) 65/1 = 65

b) (-21)/21 = -1

c) 10 / -5 = -2

8. a) Score for five correct answers = 5 x 5 = 25

Score for 5 incorrect answers = 5 x -2 = -10

Total score = 25 + (-10) = 15

b) Score for six correct answers = 6 x 5 = 30

Score for four incorrect answers = 4 x (-2) = -8

Total score = 30 + (-8) = 22

9. Sum of two integers = 125 (given)

One number = -28 (given)

Other number = 125 – (-28) = 125 + 28 = 153.

10. a = -6, b= 4, c = -2 (given)

a) LHS = a + (b +c) = -6 + (4 + -2) = (-6) +2 = -4

RHS = (a + b) + c = (-6 + 4) + -2 = -2 + -2 = -4

So verified.

b) LHS = (-6) x (4 + -2) = (-6) x 2 = -12

RHS = (-6 x 4) + (-6 x -2) = -24 + 12 = -12

So verified.
