(Examples, Easy Methods and Step by Step Solutions)


Solved Examples

In Examples 1 to 3, there are four options, out of which one is correct. Write the correct one.

Example 1: Out of the following, the number which is not equal to $\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{8}}}}{{{\mathbf{27}}}}$ is

(a) $ - {\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$

(b) ${\left( {\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$

(c) $ - {\left( {\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$

(d) $\left( {\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right) \times \left( {\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right) \times \left( {\dfrac{{ - {\mathbf{2}}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)$

Ans: Option (c) is the answer.

$\because  - {\left( {\dfrac{{ - 2}}{3}} \right)^3} =  - \left( {\dfrac{{ - 8}}{{27}}} \right) = \dfrac{8}{{27}}$


Example 2: ${\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{5}}} \times {\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$is equal to

(a) ${\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{8}}}$

(b) $ - {\left( {\mathbf{7}} \right)^{\mathbf{8}}}$

(c) ${\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{{\mathbf{15}}}}$

(d) ${\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{2}}}$

Ans: Option (a) is the answer.

By fundamental of exponents, we know $ \Rightarrow {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n+m}}$

$\therefore $${\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{5}}} \times {\left( { - {\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$$= {\left( { - 7} \right)^{5 + 3}} = {\left( { - 7} \right)^8}$


Example 3: For any two non-zero integers x any y, \[{{\mathbf{x}}^{\mathbf{3}}} \div {{\mathbf{y}}^{\mathbf{3}}}\] is equal to

(a) \[\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{x}}^{\mathbf{0}}}}}{{\mathbf{y}}}\]

(b) \[{\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{x}}}{{\mathbf{y}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}\]

(c) \[\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{x}}^{\mathbf{6}}}}}{{\mathbf{y}}}\]

(d) \[\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{x}}^{\mathbf{9}}}}}{{\mathbf{y}}}\]

Ans: Option (b) is the answer.

Using law of exponents,

$\dfrac{\mathrm{a}^{\mathrm{m}}}{\mathrm{b}^{\mathrm{m}}}=\left(\dfrac{\mathrm{a}}{\mathrm{b}}\right)^{\mathrm{m}}=(\mathrm{a} \div \mathrm{b})^{\mathrm{m}}$

$\therefore {x^3} \div {y^3} = {\left( {\dfrac{x}{y}} \right)^3}$


In Examples 4 and 5, fill in the blanks to make the statements true.

Example 4: ${\left( {{{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{7}}} \div {{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{6}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{2}}}$= ________

Ans: Solving the given expression:

$\Rightarrow {\left( {{5^7} \div {5^6}} \right)^2}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{{{5^6} \times {5^1}}}{{{5^6}}}} \right)^2} = {\left( 5 \right)^2} = 25$ 


Example 5: $\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{a}}^{\mathbf{7}}}{{\mathbf{b}}^{\mathbf{3}}}}}{{{{\mathbf{a}}^{\mathbf{5}}}{\mathbf{b}}}}$= __________

Ans: Solving the given expression:

 $\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{a^7}{b^3}}}{{{a^5}b}}$

 $\Rightarrow \dfrac{{\left( {{a^5} \times {a^2}} \right)\left( {{b^2} \times b} \right)}}{{{a^5}b}} = {a^2}{b^2} = {\left( {ab} \right)^2}$ 


In Examples 6 to 8, state whether the statements are True or False:

Example 6: In the number ${{\mathbf{7}}^{\mathbf{5}}},{\mathbf{5}}$ is the base and ${\mathbf{7}}$ is the exponent.

Ans: False, because 7 is the base and 5 is in power so 5 is the exponent.


Example 7: $\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{a}}^{\mathbf{4}}}}}{{{{\mathbf{b}}^{\mathbf{3}}}}} = \dfrac{{{\mathbf{a}} + {\mathbf{a}} + {\mathbf{a}} + {\mathbf{a}}}}{{{\mathbf{b}} + {\mathbf{b}} + {\mathbf{b}}}}$

Ans: False, because ${a^n} = n$times $a$. Therefore,

$\dfrac{{{a^4}}}{{{b^3}}} = \dfrac{{a \times a \times a \times a}}{{b \times b \times b}}$


Example 8: \[{{\mathbf{a}}^{\mathbf{b}}} > {{\mathbf{b}}^{\mathbf{a}}}\]is true, if a = 3 and b = 4; but false, if a = 2 and b = 3.

Ans: True, because if $a = 2{\text{and}}b{\text{ = }}{\text{3}}$ then

$\Rightarrow {a^b} = {\left( 2 \right)^3} = 8,{b^a} = {\left( 3 \right)^2} = 9$

$\therefore {a^b} < {b^a}$ 


Example 9: By what number should we multiply ${{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{3}}}$ so that the product may be equal to ${{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{7}}}$?

Ans: Let the number be x then according to question,

By the property of exponents $ \Rightarrow {a^m} \div {a^n} = {a^{m - n}}$

 $\Rightarrow {3^3} \times x = {3^7}$

 $\Rightarrow x = \dfrac{{{3^7}}}{{{3^3}}} = {\left( 3 \right)^{7 - 3}}$

 $\Rightarrow x = {\left( 3 \right)^4} = 81$ 

Therefore, $x = 81$ or ${3^4}$.


Example 10: Find $x$ so that ${\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^5} \times {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{11}} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{8x}}$

Ans: Given: ${\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^5} \times {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{11}} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{8x}}$

Solving the given expression by the property of exponents $ \Rightarrow {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}$

${\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^5} \times {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{11}} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{3}} \right)^{8x}}$

Equating the powers because base is same so,

 $\Rightarrow 5 + 11 = 8x$

 $\Rightarrow 16 = 8x$

 $\Rightarrow x = \dfrac{{16}}{8} = 2$

$\therefore x = 2$ 


Example 11: Express 648 in exponential notation.

Ans: Taking factors of 648:

  $\underline {2|648} $

  $\underline {2|324} $

  $\underline {2|162} $

  $\underline {3|81} $

  $\underline {3|27} $

  $\underline {3|3} $

  $\underline {|1} $ 

Therefore,

$ \Rightarrow 648 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 = {2^3} \times {3^4}$.


Example 12: Express 2,36,00,000 in standard form.

Ans: Standard form of $2,36,00,000$= $\dfrac{{23600000}}{{10000000}} \times 10000000 = 2.36 \times {10^7}$.


Example 13: Which of the two is larger: ${{\mathbf{3}}^{{\mathbf{12}}}}$or ${{\mathbf{6}}^{\mathbf{6}}}$ ?

Ans: On comparing \[{3^{12}} = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 531441\]

And \[{6^6} = 6 \times 6 \times 6 \times 6 \times 6 \times 6 = 46656\] So, ${3^{12}} > {6^6}$ .


Example 14: Find $x$ such that ${\dfrac{1}{5}^5} \times {\dfrac{1}{5}^{19}} = {\dfrac{1}{5}^{8x}}$ 

Ans: Understand and Explore the Problem:

• If you are trying to find the value of x for the given equation.

Plan a Strategy

• Apply laws of exponents in the given equation to find the value of $x$.

Solve

• Given, ${\dfrac{1}{5}^5} \times {\dfrac{1}{5}^{19}} = {\dfrac{1}{5}^{8x}}$

Solving the given expression by the property of exponents $ \Rightarrow {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}$comparing the powers because base is same so,

 $\Rightarrow 5 + 19 = 8x$

 $\Rightarrow 8x = 24$

 $\Rightarrow x = \dfrac{{24}}{8} = 3$

$\therefore x = 3$ 

Revise

• Put the value of $x$ in the equation and check if it satisfies the equation and LHS = RHS

 $\Rightarrow 5 + 19 = 8x$

 $\Rightarrow 24 = 8\left( 3 \right)$

 $\Rightarrow 24 = 24$

$\therefore {\text{LHS}}{\text{ = }}{\text{RHS}}$ 

Hence, the verified value of $x$ is correct.

(d) $\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}}{{{{\left( {{{\mathbf{7}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right)}^{\mathbf{3}}}}}$

Ans: Option (d) is the answer.

By the property of fundamental of ‘Exponents and Powers’ ${\left( {\dfrac{a}{b}} \right)^n} = \dfrac{{{{\left( a \right)}^n}}}{{{{\left( b \right)}^n}}}$,$ {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}$,${a^n} \div {a^m} = {a^{n - m}}$, $\left( {{a^0}} \right) = 1$and ${\left( {{a^n}} \right)^m} = {a^{n \times m}}$

Solving for (d) option: 

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{2^2}}}{{{{\left( {{7^0} + {3^0}} \right)}^3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{2^2}}}{{{{\left( {1 + 1} \right)}^3}}} = \dfrac{4}{{{{\left( 2 \right)}^3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{4}{8} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

$\therefore \dfrac{1}{2} \ne 1$ 


16. \[{\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}} \times {\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{5}}}{{\mathbf{7}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}\]is equal to

(d) ${\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{3}}} \times \dfrac{{\mathbf{5}}}{{\mathbf{7}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{0}}}$

Ans: Option (c) is the answer.

By the property of fundamental of ‘Exponents and Powers’$ \Rightarrow {a^n} \times {b^n} = {\left( {ab} \right)^n}$

Solving:

$ \Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{2}{3}} \right)^3} \times {\left( {\dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^3} = {\left( {\dfrac{2}{3} \times \dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^3}$Hence, (c) is the answer.


17. In standard form, the number 829030000 is written as K \[ \times {\text{ }}{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{8}}}\]where K is equal to

(a) 82903

(b) 829.03 

(c) 82.903 

(d) 8.2903

Ans: Option (d) is the answer.

Standard form of 829030000 $= 8.29030000 \times {10^8} = 8.2903 \times {10^8}$

Comparing to find the value of K

$\Rightarrow {\text{K}} \times {\text{1}}{{\text{0}}^8} = 8.2903 \times {10^8}$

$\therefore {\text{K}} = {\text{8}}{\text{.2903}}$ 


18. Which of the following has the largest value?

(a) 0.0001 

(b) $\dfrac{{\mathbf{1}}}{{{\mathbf{10000}}}}$

(c) $\dfrac{{\mathbf{1}}}{{{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{6}}}}}$

(d) $\dfrac{{\mathbf{1}}}{{{\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{6}}}}} \div {\mathbf{0}}.{\mathbf{1}}$

Ans: Option (a) and (b) is the answer.

As $0.0001 = \dfrac{1}{{10000}}$ and $\dfrac{1}{{10000}}$are equal.

Also, option c $ \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{{{{10}^6}}} = \dfrac{1}{{1000000}}$

And option (d) $ \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{{{{10}^6}}} \div 0.1 = \dfrac{1}{{{{10}^6}}} \times 10 = \dfrac{1}{{100000}}$

Therefore, option (c) and (d) have smaller values.

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{4}{3}} \right)^5} \times {\left( {\dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^5} = {\left( {\dfrac{4}{3} + \dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^5}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{4}{3} \times \dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^5} \ne {\left( {\dfrac{4}{3} + \dfrac{5}{7}} \right)^5}$ 


58. ${\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^9} \div {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4}$

Ans: False.

$\because {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^9} \div {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^{9 - 4}} = {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^5} \ne {\left( {\dfrac{5}{8}} \right)^4}$ 

(${a^n} \div {a^m} = {a^{n - m}}$)


59. ${\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^2} \times {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^5} = {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^{10}}$

Ans: False.

$\because {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^2} \times {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^5} = {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^{10}}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^{5 + 2}} = {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^{10}}$

$\Rightarrow \therefore {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^7} \ne {\left( {\dfrac{7}{3}} \right)^{10}}$ 

(By the property $ \Rightarrow {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}$ )


60. \[{{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {\mathbf{2}}{{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {\mathbf{12}}{{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{0}}} = {\left( {{{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{6}}}\]

Ans: True.

 $\Rightarrow \because {a^0} = 1$

 $\Rightarrow {5^0} \times {25^0} \times {125^0} = {\left( {{5^0}} \right)^6}$

 $\Rightarrow 1 \times 1 \times 1 = {1^6}$

 $\therefore 1 = 1$ 


61. \[{\mathbf{876543}}{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}{\mathbf{8}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{5}}} + {\mathbf{7}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{4}}} + {\mathbf{6}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{3}}} + {\mathbf{5}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{2}}} + {\mathbf{4}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{1}}} + {\mathbf{3}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{0}}}\]

  $8 \times {10^5} = 800000$

  $7 \times {10^4} = 70000$

  $6 \times {10^3} = 6000$

  $5 \times {10^2} = 500$

  $4 \times 10 = 40$

  $3 \times {10^0} = 3 \times 1 = 3$

  ${\text{now, 800000 + 70000 + 6000 + 500 + 40 + 3 = 876543}}$ 


62. \[{\mathbf{600060}} = {\mathbf{6}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{5}}} + {\mathbf{6}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{2}}}\]

Ans: False.

$\because 6 \times {10^5} = 600000$

$6 \times {10^2} = 600$

$\therefore 600000 + 600 = 600600$

$\therefore 600060 \ne 600600$ 


63. \[{\text{ }}{\mathbf{4}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{5}}} + {\mathbf{3}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{4}}} + {\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{3}}} + {\mathbf{1}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{0}}} = {\mathbf{432010}}\]

Ans: False.

$400000 + 30000 + 2000 + 1 = 432001$

$\therefore 432001 \ne 432010$ 


64. \[{\mathbf{8}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{6}}} + {\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{4}}} + {\mathbf{5}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{2}}} + {\mathbf{9}} \times {\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{0}}} = {\mathbf{8020509}}\]

Ans: True.

$ \Rightarrow 8 \times {10^6} + 2 \times {10^4} + 5 \times {10^2} + 9 \times {10^0}$

$8000000 + 20000 + 500 + 9 = 8020509$


65. \[{{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{6}}^{\mathbf{0}}} = {\left( {{\mathbf{4}} + {\mathbf{5}} + {\mathbf{6}}} \right)^{\mathbf{0}}}\]

Ans: False.

 $\because {a^0} = 1$

 $\Rightarrow {4^0} + {5^0} + {6^0} = {\left( {4 + 5 + 6} \right)^0}$

 $\Rightarrow 1 + 1 + 1 = {\left( {15} \right)^0}$

 $\therefore 3 \ne 1$ 


66. Arrange in ascending order:

\[{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{5}}},{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{3}}},{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{3}}} \times {\mathbf{2}},{\left( {{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{3}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{2}}},{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{5}}},{{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}},{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{3}}} \times {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{1}}}\]

Ans: ${2^5} = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 = 32$

${3^3} = 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 27$

${2^3} \times 2 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 = 16$

${\left( {{3^3}} \right)^2} = {3^6} = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 729\left( {\because {{\left( {{a^n}} \right)}^m} = {a^{nm}}} \right)$

${3^5} = 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3 = 243$

${4^0} = 1\left( {\because {a^0} = 1} \right)$

${2^3} \times {3^1} = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 3 = 24$

$\therefore 1 < 16 < 24 < 27 < 32 < 243 < 729$

${4^0} < {2^3} \times 2 < {2^3} \times {3^1} < {3^3} < {2^5} < {3^5} < {\left( {{3^3}} \right)^2}$ 


67. Arrange in descending order:

\[{{\mathbf{2}}^{{\mathbf{2}} + {\mathbf{3}}}},{\text{ }}{\left( {{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{2}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}},{\text{ }}{\mathbf{2}} \times {{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{2}}},{\text{ }}\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{5}}}}}{{{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}},{\text{ }}{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{2}}} \times {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}},{\text{ }}{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{3}}} \times {{\mathbf{5}}^{\mathbf{2}}}\]

Ans: ${2^{2 + 3}} = {2^5} = 32$

${\left( {{2^2}} \right)^3} = {2^{2 \times 3}} = {2^6} = 64$

$2 \times {2^2} = {2^3} = 8$

$\dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{3^2}}} = {3^3} = 27$

${3^2} \times {3^0} = {3^2} \times 1 = 9$

${2^3} \times {5^2} = 8 \times 25 = 200$

${\text{so, 200}}{\text{ > }}{\text{64  > 32}}{\text{ > }}{\text{27}}{\text{ > 9}}{\text{ > 8}}$

$\therefore {2^3} \times {5^2} > {\left( {{2^2}} \right)^3} > {2^{2 + 3}} > \dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{3^2}}} > {3^2} \times {3^0} > 2 \times {2^2}$ 


68. By what number should \[{\left( {-{\text{ }}{\mathbf{4}}} \right)^{\mathbf{5}}}\]be divided so that the quotient may be equal to\[{\left( { - {\mathbf{4}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}\]?

Ans: Let the number be x

Then,

 $\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{{\left( { - 4} \right)}^5}}}{x} = {\left( { - 4} \right)^3}$

 $\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{{\left( { - 4} \right)}^5}}}{{{{\left( { - 4} \right)}^3}}} = x$

 $\left( {\because {a^n} \div {a^m} = {a^{n - m}}} \right)$

 $\therefore {\left( { - 4} \right)^{5 - 3}} = x$

 $\Rightarrow x = {\left( { - 4} \right)^2}$

$\therefore x = 16$ 


69. Find m so that ${\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^3} \times {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^6} = {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^{2m - 1}}$

Ans: Given: ${\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^3} \times {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^6} = {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^{2m - 1}}$

$\Rightarrow \left( {\because {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^{3 + 6}} = {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^{2m - 1}}$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^9} = {\left( {\dfrac{2}{9}} \right)^{2m - 1}}$ 

Comparing power as base is same:

 $\Rightarrow 2m - 1 = 9$

 $\Rightarrow 2m = 9 + 1$

 $\Rightarrow 2m = 10$

 $\therefore m = 5$ 


70. If $\dfrac{p}{q} = {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^2} \div {\left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)^0}$ find the value of ${\left( {\dfrac{{\mathbf{p}}}{{\mathbf{q}}}} \right)^{\mathbf{3}}}$

Ans: Given: $\dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}} = {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^2} \div {\left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)^0}$

We know, $\left( {{a^0} = 1} \right)$

Therefore, 

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}} = {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^2} \div {\left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)^0}$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}} = {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^2} \div 1$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}} = {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^2} = \left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)$

$\therefore \dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}} = \left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)$ 

Now, ${\left( {\dfrac{{\text{p}}}{{\text{q}}}} \right)^3} = {\left( {\dfrac{9}{4}} \right)^3} = \dfrac{{9 \times 9 \times 9}}{{4 \times 4 \times 4}} = \dfrac{{729}}{{64}}$.

We know, $\dfrac{a}{b} \div \dfrac{c}{d} = \dfrac{a}{b} \times \dfrac{d}{c}$ therefore,

$\Rightarrow {\left( {\dfrac{1}{2}} \right)^2} \div {\left( {\dfrac{2}{3}} \right)^3} = {\left( {\dfrac{1}{2}} \right)^2} \times {\left( {\dfrac{3}{2}} \right)^3}$

$\Rightarrow \left( {\dfrac{1}{4}} \right) \times \left( {\dfrac{{27}}{8}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{27}}{{32}}$

Ans: ${7^7} \div {7^7} = 1$


(c) \[{\left( {-{\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{{\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{7}}-{\mathbf{6}}-{\mathbf{8}}}}\]

Ans: \[{\left( {-{\mathbf{7}}} \right)^{{\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{7}}-{\mathbf{6}}-{\mathbf{8}}}}\] = ${ - 7}^{14 - 14} = { - 7} ^0$

$\because {a^0} = 1$

$\Rightarrow {\left( { - 7} \right)^0} = 1$ 


(d) \[\left( {{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right)\left( {{{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}}-{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}}-{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right)\]

Ans: By the property of exponents and power: ${a^0} = 1$ 

$\left( {{2^0} + {3^0} + {4^0}} \right)\left( {{4^0} - {3^0} - {2^0}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( {1 + 1 + 1} \right)\left( {1 - 1 - 1} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( 3 \right)\left( { - 1} \right) =  - 3$ 


(e) \[{\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{3}} \times {\mathbf{4}} \div {{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}}\]

Ans: \[{\mathbf{2}} \times {\mathbf{3}} \times {\mathbf{4}} \div {{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{0}}} \times {{\mathbf{4}}^{\mathbf{0}}}\]

By the property of exponents and power: ${a^0} = 1$

$ 24 \div 1 = 24 $


(f) \[\left( {{{\mathbf{8}}^{\mathbf{0}}}-{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right) \times \left( {{{\mathbf{8}}^{\mathbf{0}}} + {{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{0}}}} \right)\]

Ans: By the property of exponents and power: ${a^0} = 1$ 

$\left( {{8^0} - {2^0}} \right) \times \left( {{8^0} + {2^0}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( {1 - 1} \right)\left( {1 + 1} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \left( 0 \right)\left( 2 \right) = 0$

Ans: Given: ${2^{n - 5}} \times {6^{2n - 4}} = \dfrac{1}{{{{12}^4} \times 2}}$

Solving:

= ${2^{n - 5}} \times {6^{2n - 4}} = \dfrac{1}{{{{12}^4} \times 2}}$

by the property of exponents and power: ${a^n} \div {a^m} = {a^{n - m}}$

$\Rightarrow {2^{n - 5}} \times {6^{2n - 4}} = \dfrac{1}{{{{12}^4} \times 2}}$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{{2^n}}}{{{2^5}}} \times \dfrac{{{6^{2n}}}}{{{6^4}}} = \dfrac{1}{{{{\left( {2 \times 6} \right)}^4} \times 2}}$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}{.6^{2n}} = \dfrac{{{2^5}{{.6}^4}}}{{{2^4}{{.6}^4}.2}}$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}{.6^{2n}} = 1$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}.{\left( {{6^2}} \right)^n} = 1$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}{.36^n} = 1$

$\left( {\because {a^n}.{b^n} = a{b^n}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow {\left( {2 \times 36} \right)^n} = 1$

$\Rightarrow {72^n} = 1$

$\Rightarrow {72^n} = {72^0}$

$\therefore n = 0$

83. The speed of light in vacuum is 3 × ${\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{8}}}$ m/s. Sunlight takes about 8 minutes to reach the earth. Express distance of Sun from Earth in standard form.

Ans: Given:  speed of light in vacuum is = $3 \times {10^8}{\text{m}}{{\text{s}}^{ - 1}}$

Sunlight reaches in 8 minutes = $8 \times 60 = 480{\text{s}}$

As, Distance = speed x time

$\therefore 3 \times {10^8} \times 480 = 1440 \times {10^8}{\text{m}}$

$\Rightarrow {\text{1}}{\text{.440}} \times {\text{1}}{{\text{0}}^3} \times {10^8}$

Ans: Representing the given information in scientific notation:

Numbers written in scientific notation are compared with factor and power of ten.

Standard form = $a \times {10^k}$

Therefore, 

1. given: Area of Kalahari, South Africa = 932,400

In standard form:

  $932400 = 9324 \times {10^2}$

  $= 9.324 \times {10^3} \times {10^2}$

  $= 9.324 \times {10^5}$ 

2. given: Area of Thar, India = 199,430

In standard form:

  $199430 = 19943 \times {10^1}$

  $= 1.9943 \times {10^4} \times {10^1}$

  $= 1.9943 \times {10^5}$ 

3. given: Area of Gibson, Australia = 155,400

In standard form:

  $155400 = 1554 \times {10^2}$

  $= 1.554 \times {10^3} \times {10^2}$

  $= 1.554 \times {10^5}$ 

4. given: Area of Great Victoria, Australia = 647500

In standard form:

  $647500 = 6475 \times {10^2}$

  $= 6.475 \times {10^3} \times {10^2}$

  $= 6.475 \times {10^5}$ 

5. given: Area of Sahara, North Africa = 8,598,800

In standard form:

  $8598800 = 85988 \times {10^2}$

  $= 8.5988 \times {10^4} \times {10^2}$

  $= 8.5988 \times {10^6}$ 

Because power of 10 is same in all standard form so we will compare factors for arranging the data in ascending order:

Therefore,

Gibson, Australia < Thar, India < Great Victoria, Australia < Kalahari, South Africa < Sahara, North Africa.

10 Years

3,20,000,000


Ans: 1. 1 minute = 60 seconds 

Therefore, in scientific notation = $6 \times {10^1}$s.

2. 1 hour = 60 minute and 1 minute = 60 seconds

So, 1 hour = 60 x 60 = 3600 s

Therefore, in scientific notation = $3.6 \times {10^3}$s.

3. 1 day = 24 hours

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds

So, 1 day = 24 x 60 x 60 = 86,400 seconds

Therefore, in scientific notation = $864 \times {10^2} = 8.64 \times {10^2} \times {10^2} = 8.64 \times {10^4}$s.

4.  1 month = 26,00,000 seconds

Therefore, in scientific notation = $26 \times {10^5} = 2.6 \times 10 \times {10^5} = 2.6 \times {10^6}$s.

5. 1 year = 32,000,000 seconds 

Therefore, in scientific notation = $32 \times {10^6} = 3.2 \times 10 \times {10^6} = 3.2 \times {10^7}$s.

6. 10 year = 1 year x 10 = 320,000,000 x 10 = 320,000,000 seconds

Therefore, in scientific notation = $320 \times {10^6} = 32 \times {0^7} = 3.2 \times {10^8}$s.


89. On our own planet Earth, 361,419,000 square kilometers of area is covered with water and 148,647,000 square kilometers of area is covered by land. Find the approximate ratio of area covered with water to area covered by land by converting these numbers into scientific notation.

Ans: Given:

Area covered by land = 148647000 ${\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

Area covered by water = 361419000 ${\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

In standard form:

Area covered by land = 148647000 ${\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

                                       = $1.48647 \times {10^{8}}{\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

Area covered by water = 361419000 ${\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

                                          =$3.61419 \times {10^8}{\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}$

Now, ratio of water to land = $\dfrac{{3.61419 \times {{10}^8}{\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}}}{{1.48647 \times {{10}^8}{\text{k}}{{\text{m}}^2}}}$

$= \dfrac{{3.6}}{{1.5}} = 12:5$

Therefore, ratio = 12:5


90. If, ${2^{n + 2}} - {2^{n + 1}} + {2^n} = c \times {2^n}$ , find the value of c.

Ans: Given:  ${2^{n + 2}} - {2^{n + 1}} + {2^n} = {\mathbf{c}} \times {2^n}$

$\Rightarrow \left( {{2^n} \times {2^2}} \right) - \left( {{2^n} \times {2^1}} \right) + {2^n} = c \times {2^n}$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}\left( {4 - 2 + 1} \right) = c \times {2^n}$

$\Rightarrow {2^n}\left( 3 \right) = c \times {2^n}$

$\therefore c = 3$

Therefore, distance between Earth and Sun: 

$= \dfrac{{1.496}}{{10000}} \times {10^8} \times {10^4}{\text{km}}$

$= 0.0001496 \times {10^{12}}{\text{km}}$

So, $9.46 > 0.0001496$.

Hence, the distance between Earth and Sun is less than one light year.


92. Geometry Application: The number of diagonals of an n-sided figure is $\dfrac{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{2}}}\left( {{{\mathbf{n}}^{\mathbf{2}}} - {\mathbf{3n}}} \right)$.Use the formula to find the number of diagonals for a 6-sided figure (hexagon).

Ans: Given:

Number of diagonals = $\dfrac{1}{2}\left( {{n^2} - 3n} \right)$

Number of sides in hexagon = 6

Therefore, $n = 6$

Now, Number of diagonals = $\dfrac{1}{2}\left( {{n^2} - 3n} \right)$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}\left( {{6^2} - 3\left( 6 \right)} \right)$

$= \dfrac{1}{2}\left( {36 - 18} \right)$

$= \dfrac{{18}}{2} = 9$ 

Hence, number of diagonals = 9.


93. Life Science: Bacteria can divide in every 20 minutes. So, 1 bacterium can multiply to 2 in 20 minutes. 4 in 40 minutes, and so on. How many bacteria will there be in 6 hours? Write your answer using exponents, and then evaluate.

Ans:  1 h = 60 min

6 h = 60 x 6 min = 360 min 

Also, given that: A Bacteria doubles itself in every 20 min.

So, the number of times it will double itself = $\dfrac{{360}}{{20}} = 18$min.

∴ In 6 h = \[2{\text{ }} \times 2 \times  \ldots  \times {\text{ }}2\](18 times) = ${2^{18}}$.


94. Blubber makes up 27 percent of a blue whale’s body weight. Deepak found the average weight of blue whales and used it to calculate the average weight of their blubber. He wrote the amount as \[{{\mathbf{2}}^{\mathbf{2}}} \times {{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{2}}} \times {\mathbf{5}} \times {\mathbf{17}}\]kg. Evaluate this amount.

Ans: Calculated weight by Deepak = ${2^2} \times {3^2} \times 5 \times 17$kg

$= 2 \times 2 \times 3 \times 3 \times 5 \times 17$ kg

$= 4 \times 9 \times 5 \times 17{\text{kg}}$

${\text{ = }}{\text{36}} \times {\text{5}} \times {\text{17}}{\text{kg}}$

${\text{ = }}{\text{180}} \times {\text{17}}{\text{kg}}$

${\text{ =  3060}}{\text{kg}}$ 

So, the weight calculated by Deepak = 3060 kg. 


95. Life Science Application: The major components of human blood are red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma. A typical red blood cell has a diameter of approximately 7 × ${\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{ - {\mathbf{6}}}}$ meters. A typical platelet has a diameter of approximately 2.33 × ${\mathbf{1}}{{\mathbf{0}}^{ - {\mathbf{6}}}}$ meter. Which has a greater diameter, a red blood cell or a platelet?

Ans: Given:

Diameter of platelet = 2.33 x ${10^{ - 6}}$ m

Diameter of red blood cell = 7 x ${10^{ - 6}}$ m 

The number with the greater power of 10 is greater than the number with the lesser power of 10. 

If the power of ten is equal, then the number with the greater factor is the larger number. Therefore, a red blood cell has a greater diameter than a platelet.

$\because 7 > 2.33$.


96. A googol is the number 1 followed by 100 zeroes. 

(a) How is a googol written as a power? 

Ans: As 1 googol = 100 times 10 $= {10^{100}}$ 


(b) How is a googol times a googol written as a power?

Ans: Googol time’s googol:

Because, 1 googol = 100 times 10 

Therefore, googol times googol = ${10^{100}} \times {10^{100}}$.


97. What’s the error? A student said that $\dfrac{{{{\mathbf{3}}^{\mathbf{5}}}}}{{{{\mathbf{9}}^{\mathbf{5}}}}}$ is the same as $\dfrac{{\mathbf{1}}}{{\mathbf{3}}}$. What mistake has the student made?

Ans: Given:

$= \dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{9^5}}}$ can be written as $\dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{{\left( {3 \times 3} \right)}^5}}} = \dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{{\left( {{3^2}} \right)}^5}}} = \dfrac{{{3^5}}}{{{3^{10}}}}$\[\left( {\because {a^n} \times {a^m} = {a^{n + m}}} \right)\]

$\Rightarrow {3^5} \times {3^{ - 10}} = {3^{5 + \left( { - 10} \right)}} = {3^{5 - 10}} = {3^{ - 5}}$

$\therefore {3^{ - 5}} = \dfrac{1}{{{3^5}}}$ 

Thus, multiplying the base by its exponent, is the error.
