## PSEB Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers Ex 1.5

1. Which of the following are meaningless:

Question (a)
IC
Solution:
Since I can be subtracted only from V and X not from C
So IC is meaningless.

Question (b)
VD
Solution:
VD, since V cannot be subtracted
So VD is meaningless.

Question (c)
XCVII
Solution:
XCVII = XC + VII = 90 + 7 = 97
So XCVII is meaningful.

Question (d)
IVC
Solution:
Since IV cannot be subtracted from C.
So IVC is meaningless.

Question (e)
XM.
Solution:
Since X can be subtracted only from L and C not from M.
So XM is meaningless.

2. Write the following in Hindu Arabic Numerals:

Question (a)
XXV
Solution:
XXV = X + X + V
= 10 + 10 + 5 = 25

Question (b)
XLV
Solution:
XLV = XL + V = 40 + 5 = 45

Question (c)
LXXIX
Solution:
LXXIX = L + X + X + IX
= 50 + 10 + 10 + 9 = 79

Question (d)
XCIX
Solution:
XCIX = XC + IX = 90 + 9 = 99

Question (e)
CLXIX
Solution:
CLXIX = CL + X + IX = 40 + 10 + 9 = 59

Question (f)
DCLXII
Solution:
DCLXII = D + C + L + X + II
= 500 + 100 + 50 + 10 + 2 = 662

Question (g)
DLXIX
Solution:
DLXIX = D + L + X + IX
= 500 + 50 + 10 + 9
= 569

Question (h)
DCCLXVI
Solution:
DCCLXVI = D + CC + L + X + VI
= 500 + 200 + 50 + 10 + 6 = 766

Question (i)
CDXXXVIII
Solution:
CDXXXVIII = CD + XXX + VIII
= 400 + 30 + 8 = 438

Question (j)
MCCXLVI = M + CC + XL + VI
= 1000 + 200 + 40 + 6
= 1246

(c) 94 = 90 + 4 = XCIV
(d) 99 = 90 + 9 = XCIX
(e) 156 = 100 + 50 + 6 = CLVI
(f) 293 = 200 + 90 + 3 = CCXCffl
(g) 472 = 400 + 70 + 2 = CDLXXII
(h) 638 = 600 + 30 + 8 = DCXXXVIII
(i) 1458 = 1000 + 400 + 50 + 8 = MCDLVIII
(j) 948 = 900 + 40 + 8 = CMXLVIH
(k) 199 = 100 + 90 + 9 = CXCIX
(l) 499 = 400 + 90 + 9 = CDXCIX
(m) 699 = 600 + 90 + 9 = DCXCIX
(n) 299 = 200 + 90 + 9 = CCXCIX
