#### Exercise 1.1 (Page – 7)

**Question 1 : Use Euclid’s division algorithm to find the HCF of:**

i) 135 and 225

ii) 196 and 38220

iii) 867 and 255

**Answer : **

**i) Applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 135 and 225, to get**

225 = 1 x 135 + 90

Again, applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 90 and 135, to get

135 = 1 x 90 + 45

Again, applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 45 and 90, to get

90 = 2 x 45 + 0

Now, HCF (225, 135) = HCF (133, 90) = HCF (90, 45) = 45.

**ii) Applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 196 and 38220 to get**

38220 = 195 x 196 + 0

∴ HCF (38220, 196) = 196

**iii) Applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 867 and 225, to get**

867 = 3 x 255 + 102

Again, applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 102 and 255, to get

255 = 2 x 102 + 51

Again, applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 51 and 102, to get

102 = 2 x 51 + 0

Now, HCF (867, 255) = HCF (255, 102) = HCF (102, 51) = 51.

**Question 2 : Show that any positive odd integer is of the form 6q + 1, or 6q + 3, or 6q + 5, where q is some integer.**

**Answer : **

Consider *a*, a positive integer, we apply division algorithm with *q* and *b = 6, 0 ≤ r < 6* such that

*a = 6q + r*

As *0 ≤ r < 6 . *Therefore , possible remainders are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Number *a* can be *6q, 6q + 1 , 6q + 2, 6q + 3, 6q + 4 or 6q + 5*

*6q = 2(3q) = 2m;*

*6q + 1 = 2(3q) + 1 = 2m + 1;*

*6q + 2 = 2(3q + 1) = 2n;*

*6q + 3 = 2(3q + 1) + 1 = 2n + 1;*

*6q + 4 = 2(3q + 2) = 2t;*

*6q + 5 = 2(3q + 2) + 1 = 2t + 1.*

We note *6q, 6q + 2* and *6q + 4* are of the form *2r, r ∈ N*, which are even numbers; and *6q + 1, 6q + 3* and *6q + 5* are of the form *2r + 1, r ∈ N*, which are odd numbers.

Hence, *6q + 1, 6q + 3* and *6q + 5* are positive and odd integers.

**Question 3 : An army contingent of 616 members is to march behind an army band of 32 members in a parade. The two groups are to march in the same number of columns. What is the maximum number of columns in which they can march?**

**Answer : **

To find maximum number of columns, we have to find HCF of 616 and 32.

Using Euclid’s division algorithm, we have

616 = 19 x 32 + 8

Now, applying Euclid’s division algorithm on 32 and 8m we have

32 = 4 x 8 + 0

∴ HCF (616, 32) = HCF (32, 8) = 8

Hence, maximum number of columns is 8.

**Question 4 : Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the square of any positive integer in either of the form 3m or 3m + 1 for some integer m.**

**Answer :** Consider positive integer *x*, with *q* and *b = 3, 0 ≤ r < 3*

*x* can be of the form *3q, 3q + 1* and *3q + 2* because, *r = 0, 1 , 2*

There exist three cases:

**Case I :** *x = 3q*

*⇒ x ^{2} = (3q)^{2} = 9q^{2} = 3m, m = 3q^{2} ………….. (i)*

**Case II :** *x = 3q + 1*

*⇒ x ^{2} = (3q + 1)^{2} = 9q^{2} +6q + 1 = 3(3q^{2}+ 2q)+ 1*

= 3m + 1, m = 3q^{2}+ 2q ………….. (ii)

**Case III :** *x = 3q + 2
*

*⇒ x ^{2} = (3q + 2)^{2} = 9q^{2} +12q + 4*

= 3(3q^{2}+ 4q + 1) + 1

= 3m + 1, m = 3q^{2}+ 4q + 1 ………….. (iii)

Hence, from (i) , (ii) and (iii) , the square of any positive integer is either of the from *3m* or *3m + 1*.

**Question 5 : Use Euclid’s division lemma to show that the cube of any positive integer is of the from 9m, 9m + 1 or 9m + 8.**

**Answer :** Consider positive integer *a*, with *q* and *b = 3, 0 ≤ r < 3.*

*a *can be of the form *3q, 3q + 1* and *3q + 2* because, *r = 0, 1 , 2*

Consider *a = 3q*

*⇒ a ^{3} = 27q^{3} = 9(3q^{3})= 9m, m = 3q^{3}*

Consider *a = 3q + 1*

*⇒ a ^{3} = (3q + 1)^{3} = 27q^{3 }+ 27q^{2}+ 9q + 1*

= 9(3q^{3 }+ 3q^{2}+ q) + 1 = 9m + 1 ; where m = 3q^{3 }+ 3q^{2}+ q

And consider *a = 3q + 2*

*⇒ a ^{3} = (3q + 2)^{3} = 27q^{3 }+ 54q^{2}+ 36q + 8*

= 9(3q^{3 }+ 6q^{2}+ 4q) + 8 = 9m + 8 ; where m = 3q^{3 }+ 3q^{2}+ q

Hence, cube of any positive integer is of the form *9m, 9m + 1* or *9m + 8*.
