OperumONS UNTUI a) Find the greatest number that divides 36, 45 and 63 without leaving a remainder. b) c) Find the greatest number by which 90, 120 and 150 are exactly divisible. Three drums contain 501, 60 l and 70 l of oil. Find the greatest capacity of a bucket which can empty out each drum with the exact number of fillings. Three bags contain 80 kg of wheat flour, 120 kg of corn flour and 160 kg of rice. What is the greatest number of people to whom these items can be distributed equally? What is the share of each item among them? d) e) Find the greatest number of children to whom 48 oranges, 80 bananas and 144 apples can be divided equally. Also find the shares of each fruit among them. 22 There are 120 mangoes in a basket and 168 mangoes in another basket. Find the greatest number of mangoes which are to be taken out at a time from each basket so that both of them will be emptied simultaneously. A rectangular floor is 12 m long and 10 m broad. If it is to be paved with squared marbles of the same size, find the greatest length of each squared marble.​

a) The greatest number that divides 36, 45, and 63 without leaving a remainder is 9

b) The greatest number which exactly divides 90, 120, and 150 is 30

c) The greatest capacity of the bucket is 10 liters

d) The greatest number of people to whom the items can be distributed equally is 40 people

ii) 2 kg of wheat flour, 3 kg of corn and 4 kg of rice

e) The greatest number of children to whom the 48 orange, 80 bananas, and 144 apples can be distributed equally is 16

ii) 3 oranges, 5 bananas and 9 apples each

f) 5 mangoes at a time from the basket containing 120 mangoes

7 mangoes at a time from the basket containing 168 mangoes

g) The greatest length of each squared marble is 2 m

Step-by-step explanation:

a) The greatest number that divides 36, 45, and 63 without leaving a remainder = The highest common factor of 36, 45, and 63, which is given as follows;

36 = 9 × 4

45 = 9 × 5

63 = 9 × 7

Therefore, The greatest number that divides 36, 45, and 63 without leaving a remainder  = The highest common factor of 36, 45, and 63 = 9

b) 90 = 30 × 3

120 = 30 × 4

150 = 30 × 5

The greatest number which exactly divides 90, 120, and 150 is 30

c) The factors of the volumes are;

50 l = 10 × 5 l

60 l = 10 × 6 l

70 l = 10 × 7 l

Therefore, the greatest capacity of the bucket = 10 liters

d) The masses of the items are

The factors of 80 = 40 × 2

120 = 40 × 3

160 = 40 × 4

Therefore the items can be distributed equally to 40 people

ii) Each person gets 2 kg of wheat flour, 3 kg of corn and 4 kg of rice

e) 48 = 16 × 3

80 = 16 × 5

144 = 16 × 9

Therefore, the greatest number of children = 16

ii) Each child gets 3 oranges, 5 bananas and 9 apples

f) The factors of 120 = 24 × 5

168 = 24 × 7

Therefore;

The greatest number of mangoes which is to be taken out of the basket with 120 mangoes = 5 mangoes each (24 times)

The greatest number of mangoes which is to be taken out of the basket with 168 mangoes = 7 mangoes each (24 times)

g) The area of the floor = 12 m × 10 m = 120 m²

The factor of 120 m² which is a perfect square is 4 therefore, we have;

The side length of each squared marble, s = √4 = 2

The side length of each squared marble, s = 2 m
