## NCERT Class 6 Maths Chapter 2: Complete Resource for Whole Numbers

## FAQs on NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 - Whole Numbers

**1. Explain the Closure Property on Addition and Multiplication with an example.**

The closure property of addition and multiplication states that when you add or multiply any two numbers from a set, the result will also be a number from the same set.

For example, if you add two whole numbers, the result will always be a whole number. Similarly, if you multiply two whole numbers, the result will always be a whole number.

For addition, a + b = b + a

3000 + 5000 = 8000

5000 + 3000 = 8000

For multiplication, a x b = b x a

25 x 50 = 1250

50 x 25 = 1250

**2. Explain the Associative Property on Addition and Multiplication with an example.**

The Whole Numbers can satisfy the associated property on both additions and multiplications similar to the closure property. Let's see an example of this.

For addition, a+(b+c) = (a+b)+c

2+ (4+6) = (2+4)+6 = 12

For multiplication, a x (b x c )= (a x b) x c

2 x (4 x 6) = (2 x 4) x 6 = 48

**3. What are the properties available in Mathematics for numbers?**

Generally, we have six properties for the numbers. However, there will not be any compulsion that all members should satisfy all the properties. Some of the properties were satisfied and some may not. The basic properties available are -

Closure property

Associative property

Commutative property

Distributive property

Identity property

Inverse property etc.

**4. Where can I access the solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 2?**

Class 6 Chapter 2 is an easy chapter if practised regularly. To make it easier, you can easily avail the solutions on Vedantu. The solutions can easily be accessed free of cost via the link given.

**5. What is the whole number in Class 6 Maths Chapter 2?**

Whole numbers are basic counting numbers in mathematics: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4,... These include 55, 88, 69856555 etc. Natural numbers beginning with 1 are included in the definition of whole numbers. Positive integers and 0 are included in whole numbers. For more information and guidance you can visit the Vedantu Site (vedantu.com) or the Vedantu app. The problems of this chapter can be tricky sometimes and hence it is advisable to practice them carefully even if you find them simple. Practice well for your exams!

**6. Do I need to practice all the questions provided in Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 NCERT Solutions?**

Indeed. It is very important that you practice and answer all questions since they cover a variety of subjects and concepts and will give you a good understanding of the kind of questions that might be set from those areas and the framework of the question paper. These questions also help you learn how different questions from the same topic may be set. Each exercise should be thoroughly revised. The Vedantu website and Vedantu mobile app both provide a variety of modules as well as example papers on these subjects if you're so inclined.

**7. What is the number 0?**

Zero is a number that can be classified as a whole number, a real number, and a non-negative integer. It is not classified as undercounting, odd, positive natural or negative whole numbers and neither a complex number. It is quite tricky to classify zero into different categories. It can be included in multiple equations involving complex numbers though. Practice all the problems related to these topics and other topics of this chapter as well in order to score well in them.

**8. Can zero be classified as a natural number?**

Zero is a number that is a whole number, a real number, and a non-negative integer. It is neither a counting, odd, positive natural, or negative whole number, nor is it a complex number. It is difficult to categorise zero in numerous ways. It can, however, be used in numerous equations involving complex values. If you are interested in obtaining various modules and example papers relating to these areas, you can simply get them through the Vedantu website as well as the Vedantu mobile app.
