## Solution of NCERT Math Exercise 1.1 (Part 2)

Question 3 Verify that  The additive inverse of  Similarly, the additive inverse of   The additive inverse of  Similarly, the additive inverse of �� Question 4 - Find the multiplicative inverse of the following Solution:

We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of  Solution:

We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of  Solution:

We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of  We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of  We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of  We know that multiplicative inverse of a number is reciprocal of the number.

Thus, multiplicative inverse of Alternate:

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is equal to 1 Thus, multiplicative inverse of Question 5 Name the property under multiplication used in each of the following. Solution:

Here, 1 is the multiplicative identity.

Thus, property of multiplicative identity is used. In this, commutativity is used. Since, the product of the given number is 1, thus, is the multiplicative inverse of Thus, property of multiplicative inverse is used.

Question 6 Multiply by the reciprocal of Solution:

Reciprocal of  Question 7 Tell what property allows you to compute Solution:

The property of associativity.

Question 8 Is the multiplicative inverse of Why or why not?

Solution: Thus, is not the multiplicative inverse of Question 9 Is 0.3 the multiplicative inverse of Why or why not?

Solution: The multiplicative inverse of  is the multiplicative inverse of 0.3.
