(i) Factors of 36 are:
36 = 1 x 36;
36 = 2 x 18;
36 = 3 x 12;
36 = 4 x 9;
36 = 6 x 6
Factors of 36 = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36.

## Ex 3.1 Question 2.

Write first five multiples of:
(a) 5 (b) 8 (c) 9
Solution:
(a) First five multiples of 5 are:
5 x 1 = 5;
5 x 2 = 10;
5 x 3 = 15;
5 x 4 = 20;
5 x 5 = 25
Hence, the first five multiples of 5 are: 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25.

(b) First five multiples of 8 are:
8 x 1 = 8;
8 x 2 = 16;
8 x 3 = 24;
8×4 = 32;
8 x 5 = 40
Hence, the First five multiples of 8 are: 8, 16, 24, 32 and 40.

(c) First five multiples of 9 are:
9 x 1 = 9;
9 x 2 = 18;
9 x 3 = 27;
9 x 4 = 36;
9 x 5 = 45
Hence, First five multiples of 9 are: 9,18, 27, 36 and 45.

## Ex 3.1 Question 3.

Match the items in Column I with the items in column II.

Solution:
(i) ↔ (b) [∵ 7 x 5 = 35]
(ii) ↔ (d) [∵ 15 x 2 = 30]
(iii) ↔ (a) [∵ 8 x 2 = 16]
(iv) ↔ (f) [∵ 20 x 1 = 20]
(v) ↔ (e) [∵ 25 x 2 = 50]

## Ex 3.1 Question 4.

Find all the multiples of 9 up to 100.
Solution:
9 x 1 = 9
9 x 2 = 18
9 x 3 = 27
9 x 4 = 36
9 x 5 = 45
9 x 6 = 54
9 x 7 = 63
9 x 8 = 72
9 x 9 = 81
9 x 10 = 90
9 x 11 = 99
Hence, all the multiples of 9 upto 100 are:
9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90 and 99.
