Following number line shows the temperature in degree celsius (°C) at different places on a particular day.
(a) Observe this number line and write the temperature of the places marked on it.
(b) What is the temperature difference between the hottest and the coldest places among the above?
(c) What is the temperature difference between Lahulspiti and Srinagar?
(d) Can we say temperature of Srinagar and Shimla taken together is less than the temperature at Shimla? Is it also less than the temperature at Srinagar?
(a) By observing the given data, the temperatures of these cities are as follows.
Lahulspiti | : | −8°C |
Srinagar | : | −2°C |
Shimla | : | 5°C |
Ooty | : | 14°C |
Bangalore | : | 22°C |
(b) Temperature at the hottest place, i.e., Bangalore = 22°C
Temperature at the coldest place, i.e., Lahulspiti = −8°C
Temperature difference = 22°C − (−8°C)
= 30°C
Therefore, the temperature difference between the hottest and the coldest places is 30ºC.
(c) Temperature at Lahulspiti = −8°C
Temperature at Srinagar = −2°C
Temperature difference = −2°C − (−8°C)
= 6°C
Therefore, the temperature difference between Lahulspiti and Srinagar is 6ºC.
(d) Temperature at Srinagar = −2°C
Temperature at Shimla = 5°C
Temperature of Srinagar and Shimla taken together = −2°C + 5°C
= 3°C
3°C < 5°C
3°C < Temperature of Shimla
Yes, the temperature of Srinagar and Shimla taken together is less than the temperature of Shimla.
However, 3°C > −2°C
Hence, the temperature of Srinagar and Shimla taken together is not less than the temperature of Srinagar.
In a quiz, positive marks are given for correct answers and negative marks are given for incorrect answers. If jack’s scores in five successive rounds were 25, − 5, − 10, 15 and 10, what was his total at the end?
Jack’s scores in five successive rounds are 25, −5, −10, 15, and 10. Total score of Jack at the end will be the sum of these scores.
Therefore, Jack’s total score at the end = 25 − 5 − 10 + 15 + 10 = 35
A plane is flying at the height of 5000 m above the sea level. At a particular point, it is exactly above a submarine floating 1200 m below the sea level. What is the vertical distance between them?
Height of plane = 5000 m
Depth of submarine = −1200 m
Distance between plane and submarine = 5000 m − (−1200) m
= 5000 m + 1200 m = 6200 m
Mohan deposits Rs 2,000 in his bank account and withdraws Rs 1,642 from it, the next day. If withdrawal of amount from the account is represented by a negative integer, then how will you represent the amount deposited? Find the balance in Mohan’s account after the withdrawal.
Since the amount withdrawn is represented by a negative integer, the amount deposited will be represented by a positive integer.
Amount deposited = Rs 2000
Amount withdrawn = −Rs 1642
Balance in Mohan’s account = Money deposited + Money withdrawn
= 2000 + (−1642) = 2000 − 1642 = 358
Therefore, balance in Mohan’s account after withdrawal is Rs 358.
Rita goes 20 km towards east from a point A to the point B. From B, she moves 30 km towards west along the same road. If the distance towards east is represented by a positive integer then, how will you represent the distance travelled towards west? By which integer will you represent her final position from A?
Rita moves from point A to B=20km
Now from B she moves to west =30 km
Now distance towards east is in + integer= +20 km
And distance in west is represented in negative then =-30 km
So the distance travelled by rita is shown as =(+20-30)km
So the distance of reeta from A = +20-30=-10km
That is 10 km towards west.
In a magic square each row, column and diagonal have the same sum. Check which of the following is a magic square
In square (i)-
Sum of columns
1-0
2-0
3-0
And sum if rows
1=0
2=0
3=0
Sum of diagonals
Right to left=-6
Left to right=0
Hence this will not be magical square.
Now for the second square-
Sum of columns
1=-9
2=-9
3=-9
Sum if rows
1=-9
2=-9
3=-9
Sum of diagonals
Right to left= -9
Left to right=-9
Hence in this square sum of all rows ,columns and diagonals are all equal therefore this is magical square.
Verify a − (−b) = a + b for the following values of a and b.
(i) a = 21, b = 18
(ii) a = 118, b = 125
(iii) a = 75, b = 84
(iv) a = 28, b = 11
(i) a = 21, b = 18
a − (−b) = 21 − (−18) = 21 + 18 = 39
a + b = 21 + 18 = 39
∴a − (−b) = a + b = 39
(ii) a = 118, b = 125
a − (−b) = 118 − (−125) = 118 + 125 = 243
a + b = 118 + 125 = 243
∴a − (−b) = a + b = 243
(iii) a = 75, b = 84
a − (−b) = 75 − (−84) = 75 + 84 = 159
a + b = 75 + 84 = 159
∴ a − (−b) = a + b = 159
(iv) a = 28, b = 11
a − (−b) = 28 − (−11) = 28 + 11 = 39
a + b = 28 + 11 = 39
∴ a − (−b) = a + b = 39

A water tank has steps inside it. A monkey is sitting on the topmost step (i.e., the first step). The water level is at the ninth step.
(i) He jumps 3 steps down and then jumps back 2 steps up. In how many jumps will he reach the water level?
(ii) After drinking water, he wants to go back. For this, he jumps 4 steps up and then jumps back 2 steps down in every move. In how many jumps will he reach back the top step?
(iii) If the number of steps moved down is represented by negative integers and the number of steps moved up by positive integers, represent his moves in part (i) and (ii) by completing the following; (a) − 3 + 2 − … = − 8 (b) 4 − 2 + … = 8. In (a) the sum (− 8) represents going down by eight steps. So, what will the sum 8 in (b) represent?
Let the steps moved down be represented by positive integers and the steps moved up be represented by negative integers.
(i) Initially, the monkey was at step = 1
After 1^{st} jump, the monkey will be at step = 1 + 3 = 4
After 2^{nd} jump, the monkey will be at step = 4 + (−2) = 2
After 3^{rd} jump, the monkey will be at step = 2 + 3 = 5
After 4^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 5 + (−2) = 3
After 5^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 3 + 3 = 6
After 6^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 6 + (−2) = 4
After 7^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 4 + 3 = 7
After 8^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 7 + (−2) = 5
After 9^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 5 + 3 = 8
After 10^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 8 + (−2) = 6
After 11^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 6 + 3 = 9
Clearly, the monkey will be at water level (i.e., 9^{th} step) after 11 jumps.
(ii) Initially, the monkey was at step = 9
After 1^{st} jump, the monkey will be at step = 9 + (−4) = 5
After 2^{nd} jump, the monkey will be at step = 5 + 2 = 7
After 3^{rd} jump, the monkey will be at step = 7 + (− 4) = 3
After 4^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 3 + 2 = 5
After 5^{th} jump, the monkey will be at step = 5 + (− 4) = 1
Clearly, the monkey will reach back at the top step after 5 jumps.
(iii) If steps moved down are represented by negative integers and steps moved up are represented by positive integers, then his moves will be as follows.
Moves in part (i)
− 3 + 2 − 3 + 2 − 3 + 2 − 3 + 2 − 3 + 2 − 3 = −8
Moves in part (ii)
4 − 2 + 4 − 2 + 4 = 8
Moves in part (ii) represent going up 8 steps.
At Srinagar temperature was − 5°C on Monday and then it dropped by 2°C on Tuesday. What was the temperature of Srinagar on Tuesday? On Wednesday, it rose by 4°C. What was the temperature on this day?
Temperature on Monday = −5°C
Temperature on Tuesday = Temperature on Monday −2°C
= −5°C − 2°C = −7°C
Temperature on Wednesday = Temperature on Tuesday + 4°C
= −7°C + 4°C = −3°C
Therefore, the temperature on Tuesday and Wednesday was −7ºC and −3ºC respectively.
