1.  Multiply each of the following Rational Numbers

(i) 5/11 by 3/4

(ii) -2/9 by 4/11

(iii) -3/7 by -2/-5

Solution:

(i) 5/11 by 3/4

= (5/11)/(3/4)

= 5/11*4/3

= 5*4/11*3

= 20/33

(ii) -2/9 by 4/11

= (-2/9)/(4/11)

= -2/9*11/4

= -2*11/9*4

= -22/36

= -11/18

(iii) -3/7 by -2/-5

= (-3/7)/(-2/-5)

= (-3/7)/(2/5)

= -3/7*5/2

= -3*5/7*2

= -15/14

2. Find the Product of each of the following

(i) 4/5*(-7/6) (ii) (-11)/5 × 9/-3

Solution:

(i) 4/5*(-7/6)

= 4*-7/5*6

= -28/30

= -14/15

(ii) (-11)/5 × 9/-3

= -11*9/5*-3

= -99/-15

= 99/15

= 33/5

3. Find the Reciprocal of

(i) 10/22

(ii)(-5/12)

(iii) -14

Solution:

Reciprocal is nothing but the number which when multiplied by given number results in 1

(i) 22/10

(ii) 12/-5

(iii) 1/-14

4. Find the Value of

(i) (3/8)^-1

(ii) (4/5)^-1

(iii) (7/6)^-1

Solution:

(i) (3/8)^-1

= 1/(3/8)

= 8/3

(ii) (4/5)^-1

= 1/(4/5)

= 5/4

(iii) (7/6)^-1

= 1/(7/6)

= 6/7

5. Fill in the Blanks

1.  The Product of a Rational Number and its Reciprocal is  __________

2.  Reciprocal of b where b  ≠  0 is __________

3. Reciprocal of 1/b where b ≠  0 is __________

4. Rational Number 0 has its __________

5. Is Zero Reciprocal of any number __________

6. Reciprocal of Positive Rational Number remains __________

7. Reciprocal of Negative Rational Number remains __________

Solution:

1.  1

2. 1/b

3. b

4. Own Reciprocal

5. No

6. Positive

7. Negative

6. Simplify the following and express the result as a Rational Number

(i) -13/21 × 2/5

(ii) 3/4 × -5/28

Solution:

(i) -13/21 × 2/5

= (-13*2)/(21*5)

= -26/105

(ii) 3/4 × -5/28

=3*(-5)/4*28

= -15/112
