### Solved Examples on Properties of Whole Numbers

1. Fill in the following blanks with suitable answers.

i. 120 × (273 + 40) = _____ + (120 × 40)
ii. 89 × 12 = 12 × (80 + ____ )
iii. 60 × 204 = (60 × 200) + (60 × ____ )

a) i. 120 x 273, ii. 9, iii. 4
b) i. 273 x 273, ii. 9, iii. 4
c) i. 120 x 120, ii. 9, iii. 4
d) i. 150 x 273, ii. 9, iii. 4

Answer: a) i. 120 x 273, ii. 9, iii. 4

Explanation: i. 120 × (273 + 40) = 120 x 273 + ( 120 × 40 )
ii. 89 × 12 = 12 × (80 + 9)
iii. 60 × 204 = (60 × 200) + (60 × 4)

2. Solve 14 × (3 + 7) using the distributive property.

a) 100
b) 120
c) 130
d) 140

Explanation: The distributive property of multiplication over the addition of whole numbers is: a × (b + c) = (a × b) + (a × c)
So, 14 × (3 + 7) = (14 × 3) + (14 × 7)
= 42 + 98
= 140

Hence, the value of 14 × (3 + 7) is 140.

3. Jacqueline distributes 32 boxes of sweets on her birthday in her class. Each box comprises 10 candies and 2 small chocolate balls. Calculate the number of sweets in the 32 boxes.

a) 300
b) 328
c) 362
d) 384

Explanation: Number of boxes of sweets: 32
Number of candies in each box = 10
Number of small chocolate balls in each box = 2

Total number of sweets : 32 × ( 10 + 2 ) = (32 × 10) + (32 × 2) = 320 + 64 = 384

4. What property can be applied to the following expression? (8 + 4) + 11 = 8 + (4 + 11)

a) Associative property
b) Closure property
c) Commutative property
d) Distributive property

Answer: a) Associative property

Explanation: The rule for Associative Property of Addition is (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)
Expression given in the question is: (8 + 4) + 11 = 8 + (4 + 11)

Hence, the property is associative property.

5. Find the following product using the distributive property of whole numbers: 82 × 45

a) 3200
b) 3408
c) 3690
d) 3720

Explanation: By using the distributive property, we can write the given product as follows: 82 × 45 = (80 + 2) × (40 + 5)
= 80 × 40 + 80 × 5 + 2 × 40 + 2 × 5
= 3200 + 400 + 80 + 10
= 3690

Therefore, 82 × 45 = 3690.
