Visit Discussion Forum to share your knowledge and ask your doubts. In Chapter 1 of 10th Maths, we observe that Euclid’s division algorithm has to do with divisibility of integers. The result obtained from Euclid’s Lemma is quite easy to state and understand. In Class 10 Maths, there are many applications related to the divisibility properties of integers. Here, we will try a few of them to compute the HCF of two positive integers.### Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Solution All Pages

## Difference between algorithm and lemma.

### Algorithm

An algorithm is a series of well defined steps which gives a procedure for solving a type of problem.

### Lemma

A lemma is a proven statement used for proving another statement.

### Class 10 Maths Chapter 1: Real Numbers

#### Class 10 Maths Exercise 1.1

In Exercise 1.1 of Class 10 Maths Chapter 1, there are only five questions. All the questions are based on Euclid’s Division Lemma and its applications. In Questions number 1 we have to find HCF applying Euclid’s Division Lemma. In Questions number 2, 4 and 5 also apply step by step Euclid’s Division Algorithms to prove the questions. In Questions 3, we have to find out the maximum number of columns in which they can march, that is, HCF of the two numbers.

#### Class 10 Maths Exercise 1.2

In Exercise 1.2 of Class 10 Maths, the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic is main to solve the questions. Question number 1, 2, 3 are based on the prime factorisation method of LCM and HCF. In Question 4, we can use direct formula a × b = LCM × HCF. Question number 6 is an important question as per exams point of view and based on Example Number 5. One can solve Question 6 by taking common or directly solving each number and showing that it has more than two factors. At last in Question 7, we have to find out a number which is divisible by both 12 and 18 that is LCM of the two numbers.

#### Class 10 Maths Exercise 1.3

In Exercise 1.2 of Class 10 Maths, only three questions are there. We know that the square root of a non-perfect square number is an irrational number. Here, we have to prove the same fact with a various set of numbers. In each of these questions, first of all, we assume that the given number is a rational number with numerator and denominator as coprime integers. Later on, we receive a false result due to the wrong assumption, so we conclude that the given number is irrational.

#### Class 10 Maths Exercise 1.4

Class 10 Maths Exercise 1.4 deals with that decimal representation of rational numbers. Questions of Exercise 1.4 are based on Theorem 1.5, Theorem 1.6 and Theorem 1.7 given in NCERT Book of Class 10 Maths Chapter 1. Using these theorems, we can find whether the given rational number is either terminating or non-terminating repeating or non-terminating non-repeating. Most often, one mark questions are asked in CBSE Board exams or school tests also from Exercise 1.4 of Class 10 Maths.

#### Euclid’s division algorithm

The step by step way to find the HCF of two positive integers, say c and d, with c > d.

- Step 1: Apply Euclid’s division lemma, to c and d. So, we find whole numbers, q and r such that c = dq + r, 0 £ r < d.
- Step 2: If r = 0, d is the HCF of c and d. If r ≠ 0, apply the division lemma to d and r.
- Step 3: Continue the process till the remainder is zero. The divisor at this stage will be the required HCF.

##### Historical Facts on Real Numbers

The word algorithm come from the name of the name of the 9th century Persian mathematician al-Khwarizmi. The word ‘algebra’ is derived from a book, he wrote, called Hisab al-jabr w’al-muqabala.

An equivalent version of Fundamental theorem of Arithmetic was probably first recorded as Proposition 14 of Book IX in Euclid’s Elements, before it came to be known as the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic.

However, the first correct proof was given by Carl Friedrich Gauss in his al-Khwarizmi.

Carl Friedrich Gauss is often referred to as the ‘Prince of Mathematicians’ and is considered one of the three greatest mathematicians of all time, along with Archimedes and Newton. He has made fundamental contributions to both mathematics and science.

###### Prove that the square of an integer is of the form 9k or 3k + 1.
