5. Given below are two statements: 25 is a multiple of 5. 25 is a multiple of 8.

Write the compound statements connecting these two statements with “and” and “or”. In both cases check the validity of the compound statement.

Ans. The compound statement with “and” is: 25 is a multiple of 5 and 8.

Since, is true and is false therefore the compound statement with “and” is not true.

Therefore, the statement “ and ” is not valid.

Now the compound statement with “or” is: 25 is a multiple of 5 or 8.

Since, is true and is false therefore the compound statement with “or” is true.

Therefore, the statement “ and ” is valid.

6. Check the validity of the statements given below by the method given against it:

(i) The sum of an irrational number and a rational number is irrational (by contradiction method)

(ii) If is a real number with then (by contradiction method)

Ans. (i) Let us assume that is not true. Sum of an irrational and a rational number is not irrational. There exists an irrational number and a rational number such that is not irrational.  (say) is a rational number.    is rational.

But is irrational, which is contradiction, therefore our supposition is wrong.

Therefore, is true.

(ii) Let and be the statements given by is a real number with  If possible let is not true, then is true.  and is true.  is a real number with and which is contradiction, therefore our supposition is wrong.

Therefore, is true.

7. Write the following statement in five different ways, conveying the same meaning: If a triangle is equiangular, then it is an obtuse angled triangle.

Ans. (i) A triangle is equiangular implies that it is an obtuse angled triangle.

(ii) A triangle is equiangular only if it an obtuse angled triangle.

(iii) For a triangle to be equiangular it is necessary it is an obtuse angled triangle.

(iv) For a triangle to be obtuse angled triangle it is sufficient that the triangle is equiangular.

(v) Is a triangle is not equiangular then it is not an obtuse angled triangle.
