Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 4.

Observe the following pattern and find the missing digits.

11^{2} = 121

101^{2} = 10201

1001^{2} = 1002001

100001^{2} = 1…2…1

10000001^{2} = ………

Solution:

According to the above pattern, we have

100001^{2} = 10000200001

10000001^{2} = 100000020000001

Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 5.

Observe the following pattern and supply the missing numbers.

11^{2} = 121

101^{2} = 10201

10101^{2} = 102030201

1010101^{2} = ……….

……….^{2} = 10203040504030201

Solution:

According to the above pattern, we have

1010101^{2} = 1020304030201

101010101^{2} = 10203040504030201

Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 6.

Using the given pattern, find the missing numbers.

1^{2} + 2^{2} + 2^{2} = 3^{2}

2^{2} + 3^{2} + 6^{2} = 7^{2}

3^{2} + 4^{2} + 12^{2} = 13^{2}

4^{2} + 5^{2} + ….^{2} = 21^{2}

5^{2} + ….^{2} + 30^{2} = 31^{2}

6^{2} + 7^{2} + …..^{2} = ……^{2}

Solution:

According to the given pattern, we have

4^{2} + 5^{2} + 20^{2} = 21^{2}

5^{2} + 6^{2} + 30^{2} = 31^{2}

6^{2} + 7^{2} + 42^{2} = 43^{2}

Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 7.

Without adding, find the sum.

(i) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9

(ii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19

(iii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 23

Solution:

We know that the sum of n odd numbers = n^{2}

(i) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 = (5)^{2} = 25 [∵ n = 5]

(ii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 = (10)^{2} = 100 [∵ n = 10]

(iii) 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 + 23 = (12)^{2} = 144 [∵ n = 12]

Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 8.

(i) Express 49 as the sum of 7 odd numbers.

(ii) Express 121 as the sum of 11 odd numbers.

Solution:

(i) 49 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 (n = 7)

(ii) 121 = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 + 19 + 21 (n = 11)

Ex 6.1 Class 8 Maths Question 9.

How many numbers lie between squares of the following numbers?

(i) 12 and 13

(ii) 25 and 26

(iii) 99 and 100.

Solution:

(i) We know that numbers between n^{2} and (n + 1)^{2} = 2n

Numbers between 12^{2} and 13^{2} = (2n) = 2 × 12 = 24

(ii) Numbers between 25^{2} and 26^{2} = 2 × 25 = 50 (∵ n = 25)

(iii) Numbers between 99^{2} and 100^{2} = 2 × 99 = 198 (∵ n = 99)
