## Haryana Board 6th Class Maths Solutions Chapter 2 Whole Numbers Exercise 2.1

Question 1.

Write the next three natural numbers after 10,999.

Solution:

After 10,999 next three natural numbers are :

10,999 + 1 = 11,000

11,000 + 1 = 11,001

and 11,001 + 1 = 11,002.

Solution:

Before 10,001 three whole numbers are :

10,001 – 1 = 10,000

10,000 – 1 = 9,999

and 9,999 – 1 = 9,998.

(c) 10,99,999

(d) 23,45,670.

Solution:

(a) Successor of 24,40,701 is 24,40,701 + 1 = 24,40,702.

(b) Successor of 1,00,199 is 1,00,199 + 1 = 1,00,200.

(c) Successor of 10,99,999 is 10,99,999 + 1 = 11,00,000.

(d) Successor of 23,45,670 is 23,45,670 + 1 = 23,45,671.

Question 6.

Write the predecessor of:

(a) 94

(b) 10,000

(c) 2,08,090

(d) 76,54,321.

Solution:

(a) Predecessor of 94 is 94 – 1 = 93.

(b) Predecessor of 10,000 is 10,000 – 1 = 9,999.

(c) Predecessor of 2,08,090 is 2,08,090 – 1 = 2,08,089.

(d) Predecessor of 76,54,321 is 76,54,321 – 1 = 76,54,320.

Question 7.

In each of the following pairs of numbers, state which whole number is on the left of the other number on the number line. Also write them with the appropriate sign (>, <) between them.

(a) 530, 503

(b) 370, 307

(c) 98765, 56789

(d) 9830415, 10023001.

Solution: (a) 503 is on the left to 530.

∴ 503 < 530 or 530 > 503.

(b) 307 is on the left to 370.

∴ 307 < 370 or 370 > 307. ,

(c) 56789 is on the left to 98765.

∴ 56789 < 98765 or 98765 > 56789.

(d) 9830415 is on the left to 10023001.

∴ 9830415 < 10023001 or 10023001 > 9830415.
