## Integers Questions with Solutions

Practice these questions on integers to improve your understanding, skill and speed of solving questions.

Question 1: Evaluate the following:

(i) 22 – ( –87)

(ii) 198 + ( –12)

(iii) –16.87 – 30

(iv) – 19 + 34 – 34

(i) 22 – ( –87) = 22 + 87 = 109

(ii) 198 + ( –12) = 198 – 12 = 186

(iii) –16.87 – 30 = – (16.87 + 30) = – 46.87

(iv) – 19 + 34 – 34 = –19 + 0 = –19

Question 2: Find the additive inverse of the following:

Additive inverse of 23 is –23 such that;

23 + (–23) = 0 = (–23) + 23

Additive inverse of 108 is –108 such that;

108 + (–108) = 0 = (–108) + 108

Additive inverse of 476 is –476 such that;

476 + (–476) = 0 = (–476) + 476

Additive inverse of –39 is –(–39) = 39 such that;

–39 + 39 = 0 = 39 + (–39)

Question 3: Verify a + (b + c) = (a + b) + c for the following:

(i) a = 2, b = 0, c = –9

(ii) a = 34, b = 90, c = –1

L.H.S = a + (b + c) = 2 + (0 + 9)

= 2 + 9 = 11

R.H.S = (a + b) + c = (2 + 0) + 9

∴ L.H.S = R.H.S

L.H.S = a + (b + c) = 34 + {90 + (–1)}

34 + {90 – 1}

= 34 + 89 = 123

R.H.S = (a + b) + c = (34 + 90) + (–1)

= 124 + (–1)

= 124 – 1 = 123

Question 4: Evaluate using properties:

(i) 89 – 58 + 28 – (–32)

(ii) 193 + 208 – {29 – (367)}

(iii) 56 – 34 + 235 – (123)

(iv) (84 – 34) × (84 + 45)

= 89 – 58 + 28 + 32

= 89 – 58 + (28 + 32) {associativity}

= 89 – 58 + 60

= (89 + 60) – 58 {commutativity and associativity}

= 149 – 58 = 91

= 193 + 208 – {29 – 367}

= 193 + 208 – (–338)

= 193 + 208 + 338

= (193 + 208) + 338 {associativity}

= 401 + 338 = 739.

= 56 – 34 + 235 – 123

= (56 + 235) – (34 + 123) {commutativity and associativity}

= 291 – 157

= {84 + (–34)} × (84 + 45)

= 84 × (–34 + 45) {distributivity of multiplication over addition}

Question 5: Write ‘true’ or ‘false’ for the following:

(i) Zero is the smallest integer.

(ii) –10 is smaller than –7.

(iii) 1 is the smallest positive integer.

(iv) –1 is the smallest negative integer.

(v) Sum of two negative integers is a positive integer.

(i) Zero is the smallest integer. (False)

(ii) –10 is smaller than –7. (True)

(iii) 1 is the smallest positive integer. (True)

(iv) –1 is the smallest negative integer. (False)

(v) Sum of two negative integers is a positive integer. (False)

Question 6: Evaluate:

(i) (–4) × (–15) × (–33)

(ii) (–1) × (–1) × (–1) × … 100 times

(iii) (–7) × (–4) × 5

= – (4 × 15 × 33)

= (– 1) 100

= 1 {∵ 100 is an even number}

= (7 × 4) × 5

Question 7: In a class test containing 20 questions, 5 marks are awarded for each correct answer and 2 marks is deducted for each wrong answer. If Riya get 15 correct answers out of all the questions attempted. What is her total score?

Number of questions = 20

Marks awarded for corrected answer = 5

Marks awarded for wrong answer = –2

Number questions attempted correctly = 15

Number questions not attempted correctly = 5

Her total score = (15 × 5) + (–2 × 5) = 75 – 10 = 65

Question 8: An elevator descends at the rate of 4 m/min. If the elevator start descending 25 m above the ground level, how long will it take to cover –450 m? ‘

Given, the elevator is at 25 m above the ground level and have to reach 450 m below the ground level.

Distance have to be covered = 25 – (–450) = 475 m

Speed of the elevator = 4 m/min

Time taken = 475/4 = 118.75 min.

Question 9: What number should be added to the sum of 345 and 67 to make it equal to the smallest 3-digit number?

Smallest 3-digit number = 100

Now, 345 + 67 = 412

412 – 100 = 312

Thus, 412 + (–312) = 100

Question 10: During summer, the temperature within a room is 37 o C. If an air conditioner cools the room by 5 o C/min. What will be the temperature of the room after 5 minutes of switching on the air conditioner?

Temperature of the room before switching on the air conditioner = 37 o C

Rate of cooling = –5 o c/min

Temperature of the room after switching on the air conditioner for 5 min = 37 – (5 × 5)

= 37 – 25 = 12 o C.
