#### Page No 64:

#### Answer:

i) 4 more than 6

We want an integer that is 4 more than 6. So, we will start from 6 and proceed 4 steps to the right to obtain 10.

ii) 5 more than -6

We want an integer that is 5 more than -6. So, we will start from -6 and proceed 5 steps to the right to obtain -1.

iii) 6 less than 2

We want an integer that is 6 less than 2. So, we will start from 2 and proceed 6 steps to the left to obtain -4.

iv) 2 less than -3

We want an integer that is 2 less than -3. So, we will start from -3 and proceed 2 steps to the left to obtain -5

#### Page No 64:

#### Answer:

i) False

This is because 0 is greater than every negative integer.

ii) False

0 is an integer as we know that every whole number is an integer and 0 is a whole number.

iii) True

0 is an integer that is neither positive nor negative. So, the opposite of zero is zero.

iv) False

Since 10 is greater than 6, -10 is smaller than -6.

v) True

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.

#### Page No 64:

#### Answer:

i) Every negative integer that is to the right of -7 is greater than -7.

So, five negative integers that are greater than -7 are -6, -5, -4, -3, -2 and -1.

ii) Every negative integer that is to the left of -20 is less than -20.

So, five negative integers that are less than -20 are -21, -22, -23, -24 and -25.

#### Page No 68:

#### Answer:

i) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 9 steps to the right to reach a point A. Now, starting from A, we move 6 steps to the left to reach point B.

B represents the integer 3.

$\therefore $ 9 + (−6) = 3

(ii) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 3 steps to the left to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 7 steps to the right to reach point B.

B represents the integer 4.

$\therefore $ (−3) + 7 = 4

(iii) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 8 steps to the right to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 8 steps to the left to reach point B.

B represents the integer 0.

$\therefore $ 8 + (−8) = 0

(iv) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 1 step to the left to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 3 steps to the left to reach point B.

B represents the integer −4.

$\therefore $ (−1) + (−3) = −4

(v) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 4 steps to the left to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 7 steps to the left to reach point B.

B represents the integer −11.

$\therefore $ (−4) + (−7) = −11

(vi) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 2 steps to the left to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 8 steps to the left to reach point B.

B represents the integer −10.

$\therefore $ (−2) + (−8) = −10

(vii) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 3 steps to the right to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 2 steps to the left to reach point B. Again, starting from B, we move 4 steps to the left to reach point C.

C represents the integer −3.

$\therefore $ 3 + (−2) + (−4) = −3

(viii) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 1 step to the left to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 2 steps to the left to reach point B. Again, starting from B, we move 3 steps to the left to reach point C.

C represents the integer −6.

$\therefore $ (−1) + (−2) + (−3) = −6

(ix) On the number line, we start from 0 and move 5 steps to the right to reach point A. Now, starting from A, we move 2 steps to the left to reach point B. Again, starting from B, we move 6 steps to the left to reach point C.

C represents the integer −3.

$\therefore $ 5 + (−2) + (−6) = −3

#### Page No 68:

#### Answer:

(i)

$\begin{array}{l}-\text{365}\\ \frac{\text{}-\text{87}}{-\text{452}}\end{array}$

−365

−365 −87 −365 −87 -365 and -87 are both negative integers. So, we add 365 and 87, and put the negative sign before the sum.

(ii)

$\begin{array}{l}-\text{687}\\ \frac{\text{}-\text{73}}{-\text{760}}\end{array}$

-687 and -73 are both negative integers. So, we add 365 and 87, and put the negative sign before the sum.

(iii)

$\begin{array}{l}-\text{1065}\\ \frac{\text{}-\text{987}}{-2052}\end{array}$

-1065 and -987 are both negative integers. So, we add 1065 and 987, and put the negative sign before the sum.

(iv)

$\begin{array}{l}-\text{3596}\\ \frac{-\text{1089}}{-4685}\end{array}$

-3596 and -1089 are both negative integers. So, we add 3596 and 1089, and put the negative sign before the sum.

(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

#### Page No 69:

#### 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)

= -30 km

The car was 30 km south of Patna.

#### Page No 69:

#### 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.

#### Page No 71:

#### 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

#### Page No 71:

#### 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.
