Full exercise on Whole Numbers, fully solved. This is a video tutorial for 6th class NCERT students. For other educational stuff, subscribe and press bell icon.

1. Which of the following will not represent zero:
(a) 1 + 0 (b) 0 × 0

2. If the product of two whole numbers is zero, can we say that one or both of them will be zero? Justify through examples.

3. If the product of two whole numbers is 1, can we say that one or both of them will be
1? Justify through examples.
4. Find using distributive property :
(a) 728 × 101 (b) 5437 × 1001 (c) 824 × 25 (d) 4275 × 125 (e) 504 × 35

5. Study the pattern :
1 × 8 + 1 = 9 1234 × 8 + 4 = 9876
12 × 8 + 2 = 98 12345 × 8 + 5 = 98765
123 × 8 + 3 = 987
Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works?
(Hint: 12345 = 11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1).

1. The numbers 1, 2, 3,… which we use for counting are known as natural numbers.

2. If you add 1 to a natural number, we get its successor. If you subtract 1 from a natural number, you get its predecessor.

3. Every natural number has a successor. Every natural number except 1 has a predecessor.

4. If we add the number zero to the collection of natural numbers, we get the collection of whole numbers. Thus, the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3,… form the collection of whole numbers.

5. Every whole number has a successor. Every whole number except zero has a predecessor.

6. All natural numbers are whole numbers, but all whole numbers are not natural numbers.

7. We take a line, mark a point on it and label it 0. We then mark out points to the right of 0, at equal intervals. Label them as 1, 2, 3,…. Thus, we have a number line with the whole numbers represented on it. We can easily perform the number operations of addition, subtraction and multiplication on the number line.

8. Addition corresponds to moving to the right on the number line, whereas subtraction corresponds to moving to the left. Multiplication corresponds to making jumps of equal distance starting from zero.

9. Adding two whole numbers always gives a whole number. Similarly, multiplying two whole numbers always gives a whole number. We say that whole numbers are closed under addition and also under multiplication. However, whole numbers are not closed
under subtraction and under division.

10. Division by zero is not defined.
