^{3}x 2^{4}**(vii) 3**

^{2 }x 4^{2}**(ix) (5 x 4)**

^{2}**Solution:**

**(i)** 2^{3} x 4^{2}

= 2 x 2 x 2 x 4 x 4

= 8 x 16

= 128

**(ii)** 2^{3} x 5^{2}

= 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 5

= 8 x 25

= 200

**(iii)** 3^{3} x 5^{2}

=3 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

= 27 x 25

= 675

**(iv)** 2^{2} x 3^{3}

= 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3

= 4 x 27

= 108

**(v)** 3^{2} x 5^{3}

**Question 3.**

**Evaluate:**

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

**Evaluate :**

**Solution:**

**Question 5.**

**Which is greater :**

** (i) 2 ^{3} or 3^{2}**

(ii) 2^{5} or 5^{2}

**(iii) 4**

(iv) 5

^{3}or 3^{4}(iv) 5

^{4}or 4^{5}**Solution:**

**(i)** 2^{3} or 3^{3}

Since, 2^{3} = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8

and, 3^{2} = 3 x 3 = 9

∵9 is greater than 8 ⇒ 3^{2} > 2^{3}

**(ii)** 2^{5} or 5^{2}

Since, 2^{5} = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 32

and, 5^{2} = 5 x 5 = 25

∵32 is greater than 25 ⇒ 2^{35} > 5^{32}

**(iii)** 4^{3} or 3^{4}

Since, 4^{3} = 4 x 4 x 4 = 64

and, 3^{4} = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 81

∵ 81 is greater than 64 ⇒ 3^{4} > 4^{3}

**(iv)** 5^{4} or 4^{5}

Since, 5^{4} = 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 625

and, 4^{5 }= 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 x 4= 1024

∵ 1024 is greater than 625 ⇒ 4^{5} > 5^{4}

**Question 6.**

**Express each of the following in exponential form :**

** (i) 512**

** (ii) 1250**

** (iii) 1458**

**(ii) (b – a)**

^{3}**(iii) (a x b)a (iv) (a x b)b**

**Solution:**

**(i)** (a + b)^{2}

= (2 + 3)^{2} = (5)^{2} = 5 x 5 = 25

**(ii)** (b – a)^{2}

= (3 – 2)^{2}= (1)^{3}

= 1 x 1 x 1 = 1

**(iii)** (a x b)^{a}

= (2 x 3)^{2} – (6)^{2}

= 6 x 6 = 36

**(iv)** (a x b)^{b}

= (2 x 3)^{3} = (6)^{3} = 6 x 6 x 6 = 216

Good

zeesh says

Hello

This is a good idea for a guide for a book but you should make a book or a app

And another thing is that there is no option for downloading PDF

Seema Mehta says

Hello zeesh as you have mentioned that there is no option for download pdf they have added the feature….. Thanks for your suggestion…
