## Karnataka Board Class 8 Maths Chapter 7 Rational Numbers Ex 7.2

Question 1.

Write down ten rational numbers which are equivalent to \(\frac { 5 }{ 7 }\) and the denominator not exceeding 80.

Answer:

Multiply both numerator and denominator by 2, 3, 4………

\(\frac{10}{14}, \frac{15}{21}, \frac{20}{28}, \frac{35}{35}, \frac{30}{42}, \frac{35}{49}, \frac{40}{56}, \frac{45}{63}, \frac{50}{70}, \frac{55}{77}\)

Question 2.

Write down 15 rational numbers which are equivalent to \(\frac { 11 }{ 5 }\) and the numerator not exceeding 180.

Answer:

\(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{22}{10}, \frac{33}{15}, \frac{44}{20}, \frac{55}{25}, \frac{66}{30}, \frac{77}{35}, \frac{88}{40}, \frac{99}{45}} \\ {\frac{110}{50}, \frac{121}{55}, \frac{132}{60}, \frac{143}{65}, \frac{154}{70}, \frac{165}{75}, \frac{176}{80}}\end{array}\)

Question 3.

Write down 10 positive rational numbers such that the sum of the numerator and the denominator of each is 11. Write them in decreasing order.

Answer:

Question 4.

Write down ten positive rational numbers such that numerator – denominator for each of them is -2. Write to them in increasing order.

Answer:

Numerator – denominator = – 2

therefore the denominator is greater than the numerator by 2.

\(\frac{1}{3}, \frac{2}{4}, \frac{3}{5}, \frac{4}{6}, \frac{5}{7}, \frac{6}{9}, \frac{7}{9}, \frac{8}{10}, \frac{9}{11}, \frac{10}{12}\)

Question 5.

Is \(\frac { 3 }{ -2 }\) a rational number? If so, how do you write it in the form conforming to the definition of a rational number (that is, the denominator as positive integer)?

Answer:

\(\frac{3}{-2}\) is a rational number because the denominator is negative.

It can be written as \(\frac{3}{-2}\) since \(\frac{3}{-2}\) is same as \(\frac{3}{-2}\)

Question 6.

Earlier you have studied decimals 0.9, 0.8, can you’ write these as rational numbers?

Answer:

\(0.9=\frac{9}{10} \text { and } 0.8=\frac{8}{10}=\frac{4}{5}\)
