**1.
Every even number greater than 2 can be expressed as the sum of two prime numbers.
Verify this statement for every even number upto 16.**

4 = 2 + 2

6 = 3 + 3

8 = 3 + 5

10 = 3 + 7 (or) 5 + 5

12 = 5 + 7

14 = 7 + 7 (or) 3 + 11

16 = 5+ 11 (or) 3 + 13

** **

**2.
Is 173 a prime? Why?**

173, is a prime number.
Because it has only two factors 173 = 1 × 173.

** **

**3.
For which of the numbers, from n = 2 to 8, is 2n − 1 a prime?**

n = 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

2n − 1

n = 2, 2 × 2 − 1 = 4 − 1 = 3

n = 3, 2 × 3 – l = 6 – l = 5

n = 4, 2 × 4 – 1 = 8 – 1 = 7

n = 5, 2 × 5 − 1 = 10 − 1 = 9 composite number

n = 6, 2 × 6 − 1 = 12 − 1 = 11

n = 7, 2 × 7 − 1 = 14 − 1 = 13

n = 8, 2 × 8 − 1 = 16 − 1 = 15 composite number

Malarvizhi, Karthiga and Anjali are friends and natives of the same village. They
work at different places. Malarvizhi comes to her home once in 5 days. Similarly,
Karthiga and Anjali come to their homes once in 6 days and 10 days respectively.
Assuming that they met each other on the 1 ^{st} of October, when will all
the three meet again?**

To find the again meeting days of Malarvizhi, Karthiga and
Anjali calculate L.C.M.

L.C.M. = 5 × 2 × 3 = 30

Once in 30 days the three will meet again.

**14.
In an apartment consisting of 108 floors, two lifts A & B starting from the
ground floor, stop at every 3rd and 5th floors respectively. On which floors, will
both of them stop together?**

To find on which floors, both of the lifts stop together
calculate L.C.M.

L.C.M. of 3 and 5 = 3 × 5 = 15

Both the lifts will stop together at floors 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90
and 105.

**15.
The product of 2 two digit numbers is 300 and their HCF is 5. What are the numbers?**

The product of 2 two digit numbers = 300

H.C.F. = 5

The product of two numbers = H.C.F × L.C.M

300 = 5 × L.C.M.

L.C.M =~~ ~~ 300/5 = 60

L.C.M = 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

**The two numbers = 15 and 20**

**16.
Find whether the number 564872 is divisible by 88. (use of the test of divisibility
rule for 8 and 11 will help )**

The number 564872 is divisible by 88.

It must be divisible by 8 and 11.

564 ** 872** If the last three digits divisible by 8

It will divisible by 8

872/8 = 109 remainder 0.

It is divisible by 8.

5 6 4 8 7 2

Sum of alternate digits

5 + 4 + 7 = 16

6 + 8 + 2 = 16

Difference = 0

It is divisible by 11.

The sum 60 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6**

**11. 2520**

**12. Yes. 2 × 3 × 4
= 24 is divisible by 6.**

**13. Once in 30 days**

**14. The lifts will
stop at floors 15, 30, 45, 60, 75, 90 and 105**

**15. (15, 20)**

**16. Yes. Since it
is divisible by both 8 and 11 and hence by 88**

**17. After 60
minutes, at 8 a.m**

Two numbers are said to be *amicable*** numbers**
if the sum of the factors of one number (except the number itself) gives the other
number.

The numbers **220**
and **284** are amicable, since the sum of
the factors of **220** (except **220**) i.e., 1 + 2 + 4 + 5 + 10 + 11 + 20 + 22 + 44 + 55 + 110 = **284** and the sum of the factors of (except **284**)
i.e., 1 + 2 + 4 + 71 + 142 = **220**.

Check whether **1184**
and **1210** are amicable numbers.
