### Question: 9

Select those rational numbers which can be written as a rational number with numerator 6:

### Solution:

Given rational numbers that can be written as a rational number with numerator 6 are:

1/22 (On multiplying by 6) = 6/132, 2/3 (On multiplying by 3)

= 6/9, 3/4 (On multiplying by 2)

= 6/8, (-6)/7 (On multiplying by -1)

= 6/(-7)

### Question: 10

Select those rational numbers which can be written as a rational number with denominator 4:

### Solution:

Given rational numbers that can be written as a rational number with denominator 4 are:

7/8 (On dividing by 2) = 3.5/4,

64/16 (On dividing by 4) = 16/4,

36/-12(On dividing by 3) = 12/-4 = -12/4,

16/17 can’t be expressed with a denominator 4.

5/- 4(On multiplying by -1) = – 5/4

140/28(On dividing by 7) = 20/4

### Question: 11

In each of the following, find an equivalent form of the rational number having

common denominator:

(i)  3/4 and 5/12

(ii)   2/3, 7/6 and 11/12

(iii)   5/7, 3/8, 9/14 and 20/21<

### Solution:

Equivalent forms of the rational number having common denominator are:

(i) 3/4 = (3 × 3)/(4 × 3) = 9/12 and 512.

(ii) 2/3 = (2 × 4)/(3 × 4) = 8/12 and 7/6 = (7×2)/(6×2) = 14/12 and 11/12

Forms are 8/12, 14/12 and 11/12

(iii) 5/7 = (5 × 24)/(7 × 24) = 120/168, 3/8 = (3 × 21)/(8 × 21) = 63/168, 9/14

= (9 × 12)/(14 × 12)

= 108/168 and 20/21

= (20 × 8)/(21×8)

=160/168

Forms are 120/168, 63/168, 108/168 and 160/168.
