Operation On Numbers

Face value and Place value(Local value) of a digit in a numeral:  The Face value of a digit in a numeral is its own value, at whatever place it may be. Ex. In a numeral 6872,the face value of 2 is 2,the face value of 7 is 7,the face value of 8 is 8 and the face value of 6 is 6.  In a given numeral:  Place value of unit digit = (unit digit) * 1  Place value of tens digit = (tens digit) * 1  Place value of hundred’s digit = (hundred’s digit) * 1 and so on.  Ex. In the numeral 70894, Place value of 4 = (4*1) = 4, Place value of 8 =(8*10)=80, Place value of 9 =(9*100)=900, and Place value of 7 = (7*10000)=70000.

Various types of Numbers
• Natural Numbers: Counting numbers are called natural numbers. Thus 1, 2, 3, 4,5, 6….are all natural numbers. • Whole numbers: All counting numbers and 0 form the set of whole numbers. Thus 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6….etc. are whole numbers. • Integers: All counting numbers, zero and negative of counting numbers form the set of integers. Thus, ……-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3,….are all integers. • Prime numbers: A counting number is called a prime number if it had exactly two factors, namely itself & 1.Ex. 2, 17, 29,137 etc… • Co Primes: Two natural numbers a & b are said to be co prime if their HCF is 1. Ex. (2,3), (4,5), (7,9), (8,11) etc…. • Composite numbers: The natural numbers which are not prime, are called composite numbers.

Tests of Divisibility
• Divisibility by 2: A number is divisible by 2 if its unit digit is any of 0, 2, 4,6,8. • Divisibility by 3: A number is divisible by 3 only when the sum of its digit is divisible by 3. Ex.

Sol: Work done by the waste pipe in 1 minute: = = [. 30 hrs to fill the reservoir.ve sign means emptying] So. 4 A cistern has two taps which fill it in 12 minutes and 15 minutes respectively. the empty cistern is full in 20 minutes. When all the three are opened. it took 3 hours to fill the tank.So. x = 20. Ex. Because of leak in the tank. so the second pipe will take (20 + 10) hrs.e. There is also a waste pipe in the cistern. 5 An electric pump can fill a tank in 3 hours.

6 Two pipes can fill a cistern in 14 hours and 16 hours respectively. the leak will empty the tank in 21 hours Ex.Sol: Work done by the leak in 1 hour = = = So. Work done by the leak in 1 hour = ( . work done by ( two pipes + leak ) in 1 hour = . So. time taken = 7 hrs 28 min + 32 min = 8 hrs So. in what time the leak empty it? Sol: Work done by the two pipes in 1 hour = = . the time taken by these pipes to fill the tank = = 7 hrs 28 min Due to leakage.)= . . The pipes are opened simultaneously and it is found that due to leakage in the bottom it took 32 minutes more to fill the cistern. When the cistern is full.

Ex. Net part filled in 1 min. leak will empty the full cistern in 112 hours. hence.So.) = . C is also opened. part is filled in 1 minute. A water pipe C can empty the tank in 30 minutes. remaining part = (1 . part is filled in (60 * ) = 39 min. the tank is full? Sol: Part filled in 7 minutes = = So. Now. . when A. B and C are opened = = . total time taken to fill the tank = (39 + 7)min = 46 min. First A and B are opened. After 7 minutes. In how much time. So. 7 Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 36 minutes and 45 minutes respectively.

Simplifying it. Then. 8 Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 24 min. after how much time B should be closed so that the tank is full in 18 minutes? Sol: Let B be closed after x minutes. 7x + 4 (18 – x) = 96 So. part filled by (A + B) in x min + part filled by A in (18 – x) min = 1. we have = 1. B must be closed after 8 minutes. If both the pipes are opened simultaneously.Ex . So. and 32 min. x = 8 Hence. respectively. . x ( ) + (18 – x) * = 1.

x m/sec = (x * . Time = ) m/sec ) km/hr . If the ratio of the speeds of A and B is a : b. the average speed during the whole journey is km/hr. . then the ratio of the times taken by them to cover the same distance is or b : a. 5. Then. X km/hr =(x * 3.Suppose a man covers a certain distance at x km/hr and an equal distance at y km/hr. Distance = 4.TIME AND DISTANCE 1. Speed = 2.

What is the speed in km/hr of the cyclist? Sol: Speed = m/sec = 5 m/sec = 5* km/hr = 18 km/hr. if he runs at a speed of 20 km/hr? Sol: Aditya’s speed = 20 km/hr = ( 20 * ) m/sec = m/sec So. ) sec = 72 sec = 1 min Ex.

So. a man noticed that after walking for 1 hour and 40 minutes. . 16 : 15. What was his speed in meters per second? Sol: Let the speed be x km/hr. distance covered in 1 hr.Ex. Compare their distance. Then. 4x = y. 3x = 4y. ratio of speed of dogs and hare = ratio of distance covered by them in the same time = 4x : 5y = y : 5y . 45 min. 1 hrs = km. 3 A dog takes 4 leaps for every 5 leaps of a hare but 3 leaps of a dog are equal to 4 leaps of the hare. 4 While covering a distance of 24 km. i.. so x = y so.e. Then. the distance covered by him was of the remaining distance. it gives. Ex. Sol: Let the distance covered in 1 leap of the dog be x and that covered in 1 leap of the hare be y.

So. we have x = 6. Ex. Find the total distance. Hence. Simplifying it. 24 min.Remaining distance = ( ) km. . speed = 6 km/hr = ( 6 * ) m/sec = 1 m/sec. 5 Peter can cover a certain distance in 1 hr. Then. = . simplifying it. Sol: Let the total distance be x km. = . x = 6. by covering two-third of the distance at a 4 kmph and the rest at 5 kmph. we have 7x = 42 So. Hence. the total distance = 6 km.

Sol: Let each side of the square be x km and let the average speed of the plane around the field be y kmph. So. 400. 6 A man traveled from the village to post office at the rate of 25 kmph and walked back at the rate of 4 kmph. Sol: Average speed = ( ) km/hr = = km/hr Distance travelled in 5 hours and 48 minutes i. .Ex. Ex.7 An aeroplane flies along the fur sides of a square at the speed of 200.5 hrs =( * ) km = 40 km. find the distance of the post office from the village. Then. Find the average speed of the plane around the field. 600 and 800 kmph..

9 If a man walks at the rate of 5 kmph. a train is 10 minutes too late. Ex. if he walks at the rate of 6 kmph. = . he reaches 5 minutes before the arrival of train. Find the distance covered by him to reach the station. Hence. average speed = 384 km/hr. he misses a train by 7 minutes.So. new time taken = of the usual time So. ( of the usual time) – (usual time) = 10 min. of the usual time = 10 min Hence. 8 Walking at of its usual speed. However. Sol: New speed = of the usual speed So. y=( ) = 384. usual time = 50 min. . Ex. Find its usual time to cover the journey.

Hence. A train starts from A at 10 a.m. and travel towards B at 65 kmph.. So.m. At what time do they meet? Sol: Suppose they meet x hours after 10 a. . they meet 4 hrs. Then.e.m.ti gives x = 4 . Another train starts from B at 11 a. we have x = 6.m.Sol: Let the required distance be x km. i. the required distance is 6 km. 65x + 35 (x – 1) = 390. 10 A and B are two stations 390 km apart. (Distance moved by first in x hours) + [Distance moved by second in (x . hr. Ex. Simplifying. Hence. Difference in the times taken at two speeds = 12 min = So.1) hrs] = 390. and travels towards A at 35 kmph. at 2:15 p. 15 min after 10 a.m.

an express train leaves the same station and moves in the same direction at a uniform speed of 90 kmph. Find the speed of the goods train. Distance covered by goods train in 10 hours = Distance covered by express train in 4 hours. Sol: Let the speed of the goods train be x kmph. After 6 hours. So. 10x = 4 * 90 or x = 36. speed of goods train = 36 kmph. 11 A goods train leaves a station at a certain time and at a fixed speed.Ex. So. . This train catches up the goods train in 4 hours.

the thief covers a distance of ( )km = 400m. Hence. When the policeman starts the chase. but time taken to walk 2x km = 55 min. How long would it take me to ride both ways Sol: Let the distance be x km. (Time taken to walk 2x km) + (Time taken to ride 2x km) =74min. Time taken by policeman to cover 100 m = In hrs. 12 A thief is spotted by a policeman from a distance of 100 meters. how far the thief will have run before he is overtaken? Sol: Relative speed of the policeman = (10 – 8) km/hr = 2 km/hr. If the speed of the be 8 km/hr and that of the policeman 10 km/hr. 13 I walk a certain distance and ride back talking a total time of 37 minutes. Ex.Ex. So. . I could walk both ways in 55 minutes. the thief also starts running. time taken to ride 2x km = (74 – 55) min = 19 min. (Time taken to walk x km) + (Time taken to ride x km) = 37 min.

To be 47. they take ( ) hrs = hrs. they take 1 hour. we get x = 400. Ex. simplifying it. 15 Two train start from P and Q respectively and travel towards each other at a speed of 50 km/hr and 40 km/hr respectively. 14 Two cyclists start from the same place in opposite direction. What time will they take to be 47. So. By the time they meet. distance covered by the first train is (x + 100) km. So. Then. The distance between P and Q is____ Sol: At the time of meeting. One goes towards north at 18 kmph and the other goes towards south at 20 kmph.5 km apart. let the distance travelled by the second train be x km. . distance between P and Q = (x + x + 100) km = 900km.Ex. .5 km apart?
