LEMMA :-A Lemma is a proven statement used for proving another statement.

ALGORITHM :- An algorithm is a series of well defined steps which gives a procedure for solving a type of
Problem.

2) EUCLIDS DIVISION LEMMA :-For any two positive integers a and b, there exist unique integers q and r
Satisfying-
a=bq + r ; 0r<b.
where a = dividend
b = divisor
q = quotient
r = remainder

3) EUCLIDS DIVISION ALGORITHM :- To obtain the HCF of two positive integers c and d, with c>d,
Follow the steps below-
(i) Apply Euclids division lemma to c and d, such that c=dq + r, 0r<d.
(ii) if r=0 then d is the HCF of c and d. if r0, apply the division lemma to d and r.
(iii) Continue the process till the remainder is zero. The divisor at this stage will be the required HCF.

Example 1 : use Euclids division algorithm to find the HCF of 135 and 225.
Solution:- 225>135, we apply the division lemma to 135 and225.
225=135x1 + 90, 900
We apply the division lemma to 135 and 90.
135=90x1 + 45. 450
Again, we apply the division lemma to 90 and 45.
90=45x 2 + 0, now r=0
45 is HCF of 135 and 225.

4) THE FUNDAMENTAL THEOREM OF ARITHMETIC :-Every composite number can be expressed as
a product of primes and this factorization is
unique, apart from the order in which the prime factors occur.
i.e. Composite number= product of primes
Or
Any integer greater than 1 either a prime number, or can be written as a unique product of prime numbers.

Example 2 : express 156 as a product of its prime factors.


Solution :-
156

2 78

2 39

3 13

156=2x2x3x13
=22x3x13.

5) RELATION BETWEEN LCM AND HCF OF TWO POSITIVE INTEGERS a & b :- If a and b are two
Positive integers, then
Relation between LCM and HCF of them-
LCM(a,b) x HCF(a,b) =a x b.

6) IRRATIONAL NUMBERS :-

Irrational numbers : A number s is called irrational if it cannot be expressed in the form , where p and q
are integers and q0.
eg: 2,15, , 0.101100111000

theorem 1 : let p be a prime number. If p divides a2, then p divides a, where a is a positive integer.

Example 3 : prove that 5 is irrational.



Proof : let 5 be a rational number. Then 5 can expressed in the form

5= ..(i)
Squaring both sides, we get
2
5=2 p2=5q2(ii)
5 divides p2 5 divides p..(iii)
Now p=5m p2=25m2 ..(iv)
Putting the value of p2 in eqn (ii)

Page 3 of 4
we get,
25m2=5q2 5m2=q2
5 divides q2 5 divides q..(v)
Thus, from eqn(iii), 5 divides p and from eqn (v) 5 also divides q. it means 5 is a common factor of p and q.
This contradicts the supposition so there is no common factor of p and q.
Hence, 5 is an irrational number.

7) REVISITING RATIONAL NUMBERS AND THEIR DECIMAL EXPANSION :- Let x be a rational


Number whose decimal

Expansion terminates, then x can be expressed in the form , where p and q are co prime and the prime
Factorization of q is of the form 2m5n,where m and n are non- negative integers.

let x= be a rational number, such that the prime factorization of q is not of the form 2m5n. then x has

Non- terminating recurring decimal expansion.
