NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Math | Exercise 1.3

  1. Question 1

    Write the following in decimal form and say what kind of decimal expansion each has:
    i) \\frac{36}{100})
    ii) \\frac{1}{11})
    iii) 4\\frac{1}{8})
    iv) \\frac{3}{13})
    v) \\frac{2}{11})
    vi) \\frac{329}{400})

    Answer

    i) \\frac{36}{100}) = 0.36. It is a terminating decimal.
    ii) \\frac{1}{11})= 0.\\overline{09}). It is a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion.
    iii) 4\\frac{1}{8}) = 4.125. It is a terminating decimal.
    iv) \\frac{3}{13}) = 0.\\overline{230769}). It is a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion.
    v) \\frac{2}{11}) = 0.\\overline{18}). It is a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion.
    vi) \\frac{329}{400}) = 0.8225. It is a terminating decimal.


  2. Question 2

    You know that the value of \\frac{1}{7}) = 0.\\overline{142857}). Can you predict what the decimal expansions of \\frac{2}{7}), \\frac{3}{7}), \\frac{4}{7}), \\frac{5}{7}), and \\frac{6}{7}) are, without doing the long division? If so, how?


  3. Question 3

    Express the following in the form \\frac{p}{q}), where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0:
    i) 0.\\overline{6})
    ii) 0.4\\overline{7})
    iii) 0.\\overline{001})


  4. Question 4

    Express 0.\\overline{9}) in the form \\frac{p}{q}):


  5. Question 5

    What can the maximum number of digits be in the repeating block of digits in the decimal expansion of \\frac{1}{17})? Perform the division to check.


  6. Question 6

    Look at several examples of rational numbers in the form \\frac{p}{q}) (q ≠ 0), where p and q are integers with no common factors other than 1 and have terminating decimal expansions. What property must q satisfy?


  7. Question 7

    Write three numbers whose decimal expansions are non-terminating non-recurring.

    Answer
    1. 0.1401400140001400001400000...
    2. 0.080080008000080000080000008...
    3. 0.40400400040000400000...


  8. Question 8

    Find three different irrational numbers between the rational numbers \\frac{5}{7}) and \\frac{9}{11}).

    Answer

    First, let us find the decimal expansions of \\frac{5}{7}) and \\frac{9}{11}).
    \\frac{5}{7} = 0.\overline{714285})
    \\frac{9}{11} = 0.\overline{81})
    We have to find irrational numbers between 0.\\overline{714285}) and 0.\\overline{81})

    If we write three numbers that are non-terminating and non-recurring, we will have written three irrational numbers between the two given fractions.
    0.73073007300073..., 0.7890789007890007890000..., and 0.80800800080000... are irrational numbers between the two given fractions.


  9. Question 9

    Classify the following numbers as rational or irrational:
    i) √23
    ii) √225
    iii) 0.3769
    iv) 7.478478....
    v) 1.101001000100001...

    Answer

    i) √23 = 4.753... It is a non-terminating and non-recurring decimal. It is an irrational number. It cannot be expressed in the form \\frac{p}{q}) where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0.

    ii) √225 = 15. It is a terminating decimal. It is a rational number. It can be expressed in the form \\frac{p}{q}) as \\frac{15}{1}).

    iii) 0.3769. It is a terminating decimal. It is a rational number. It can be expressed in the form \\frac{p}{q}) as \\frac{3769}{10000}).

    iv) 7.478478.... It is a non-terminating but recurring decimal. It is a rational number. It can be expressed in the form \\frac{p}{q}) as 7\\frac{478}{999}) or \\frac{7471}{999}).

    v) 1.101001000100001... It is a non-terminating and non-recurring decimal. It is an irrational number. It cannot be expressed in the form \\frac{p}{q}) where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0.
