This is because an absolute value is a positive number. For example, -2 is an integer, but its absolute value is 2 and it is greater than -2.

vi) True

This is because all negative integers are to the left of 0.

vii) True

This is because natural numbers are positive and every positive integer is greater than every negative integer.

viii) False

This is because the successor of -187 is equal to -186 (-186 + 1). In succession, we move from the left to the right along a number line.

ix) False

This is because the predecessor of -215 is -216 (-216 - 1). To find the predecessor, we move from the right to the left along a number line.

(iii)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{}312\\ \text{-}\frac{103}{\underset{}{209\text{\hspace{0.17em}}}}\\ \text{}\end{array}$

Since we are adding a negative number with a positive number,

we shall subtract the smaller number, i.e. -103, from the greater number, i.e. 312

312 - 103 = 209

Since the greater number is positive, the sign of the result will be positive.

So, the answer will be 209

$\begin{array}{l}\left(iv\right)\\ -493\\ \frac{+289}{-204}\end{array}$

Since we are adding a negative number with a positive number,

we shall subtract the smaller number, i.e. 289, from the greater number, i.e. 493.

493 - 289 = 204

Since the greater number is negative, the sign of the result will be negative.

So, the answer will be -204

#### Question 10:

A car travelled 60 km to the north of Patna and then 90 km to the south from there. How far from Patna was the car finally?

#### Answer:

Let the distance covered in the direction of north be positive and that in the direction of south be negative.

Distance travelled to the north of Patna = 60 km

Distance travelled to the south of Patna = -90 km

Total distance travelled by the car = 60 + (-90)

A man bought some pencils for Rs 30 and some pens for Rs 90. The next day, he again bought some pencils for Rs 25. Then, he sold all the pencils for Rs 20 and the pens for Rs 70. What was his net gain or loss?

#### Answer:

Total cost price = Price of pencils + Price of pens

= 30 + 90 + 25

= Rs 145

Total amount sold = Price of pen + Price of pencils

= 20 + 70

= 90

Selling price - costing price = 90 $-$ 145

= $-$55

The negative sign implies loss.

Hence, his net loss was Rs 55.

#### Question 11:

The point *A* is on a mountain which is 5700 metres above sea level and the point *B* is in a mine which is 39600 metres below sea level. Find the vertical distance between *A* and *B*.

Figure

#### Answer:

Let us consider the height above the sea level as positive and that below the sea level as negative.

$\therefore $ Height of point A from sea level = 5700 m

Depth of point B from sea level = -39600 m

Vertical distance between A and B = Distance of point A from sea level - Distance of point B from sea level

= 5700 - (-39600)

= 45300 m

#### Question 12:

On a day in Srinagar, the temperature at 6 p.m. was 1°C but at midnight that day, it dropped to −4°C. By how many degrees Celsius did the temperature fall?

#### Answer:

Initial temperature of Srinagar at 6 p.m. = 1°C

Final temperature of Srinagar at midnight = −4°C

Change in temperature = Final temperature - Initial temperature

= (−4 − 1)°C

= −5°C

So, the temperature has changed by −5°C.

The negative sign indicates that the temperature has fallen.

So, the temperature has fallen by 5°C.
