= 81

### Question: 2

Find the value of each of the following:

(i) (-7)2

(ii) (-3)4

(iii)  (-5)5

### Solution:

We know that if ‘a’ is a natural number, then

We have,

(i)  (-7)2 = (-7) × (-7)

= 49

(ii) (-3)4 = (-3) × (-3) × (-3) × (-3)

= 81

(iii) (-5)5 = (-5) × (-5) × (-5) × (-5) × (-5)

= -3125

Simply:

(i) 3 × 102

(ii) 22 × 53

(iii) 33 × 52

### Solution:

(i) 3 × 102 = 3 × 10 × 10

= 3 × 100

= 300

(ii) 22 × 53 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5

= 4 × 125

= 500

(iii) 3× 52 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5

= 27 × 25

= 675

Simply:

(i)  32 × 104

(ii)  24 × 32

(iii) 52 × 34

### Solution:

(i)  3× 104 = 3 × 3 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10

= 9 × 10000

= 90000

(ii) 24 × 32 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

= 16 × 9

= 144

(iii) 52 × 34 = 5 × 5 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 25 × 81

= 2025

### Question: 5

Simply:

(i) (-2) × (-3)3

(ii) (-3)2 × (-5)3

(iii) (-2)5 × (-10)2

### Solution:

(i) (-2) × (-3)3 = (-2) × (-3) × (-3) × (-3)

= (-2) × (-27)

= 54

(ii) (-3)2 × (-5)3 = (-3) × (-3) × (-5) × (-5) × (-5)

= 9 × (-125)

= -1125

(iii) (-2)5 × (-10)= (-2) × (-2) × (-2) × (-2) × (-2) × (-10) × (-10)

= (-32) × 100

= -3200

Simply:

(i) (3/4)2

(ii) (-2/3)4

(iii) (- 4/5)5

### Question: 7

Identify the greater number in each of the following

(i) 25 or 52

(ii) 34 or 43

(iii) 35 or 53

### Solution:

(i) 25 or 52

25 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2

= 32

52 = 5 × 5

= 25

Therefore, 25 52

(ii) 34 or 43

= 34 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 81

= 4= 4 × 4 × 4

= 64

Therefore, 34 43

(iii) 3or 53

= 35 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 243

= 53 = 5 × 5 × 5

= 125

Therefore, 35 53

### Question: 8

Express each of the following in exponential form

(i) (-5) × (-5) × (-5)

### Solution:

Express each of the following rational numbers in power notation

(i) 49/64

(ii) – 64/125

(iii) -12/16

### Solution:

(i) 49/64 = (7/8)2

Because 72 = 49 and 82 = 64

(ii) – 64/125 = (- 4/5)3

Because 43 = 64 and 53 = 125

(iii) – (1/216) = – (1/6)3

Because 13 = 1 and 63 = 216

### Question: 15

Find the value of the following

(i) (-1/2)2 × 23 × (3/4)2

(ii) (-3/5)4 × (4/9)4 × (-15/18)2

### Solution:

(i) (-1/2)2 × 23 × (3/4)= 1/4 × 8 × 9/16

= 9/8

(ii) (-3/5)4 × (4/9)4 × (-15/18)= 81/625 × 256/6561 × 225/324 = 64/18225

### Question: 16

If a = 2 and b= 3, the find the values of each of the followimg

(i) (a + b)a

(ii) (ab)b

(iii) (b/a)b

(iv) (a/b + b/a)a

### Solution:

(i) (a + b)a = (2 + 3)2

= (5)2

= 25

(ii) (ab)b = (2 × 3)3

= (6)3

= 216

(iii) (b/a)b = (3/2)3

= 27/8

(iv) (a/b + b/a)a = (2/3 + 3/2)2

= 169/36
