Answers and explanations:

1) A) \frac{3}{80}.

Explanation:-

H.C.F. of fraction = H.C.F. of numerators / L.C.M. of denominators.

 

2) D) \frac{45}{2}.

Explanation:-

L.C.M. of fractions = L.C.M. of numerators / H.C.F. of denominators.

 

3) B) 0.105.

Explanation:-

Given numbers are 1.26, 1.155, 0.21 and 0.315.

H.C.F. of 1260, 1155, 210 and 315 is 105.

Hence H.C.F. 1.26, 1.155, 0.21 and 0.315 = 0.105.

 

4) C) 13.86.

Explanation:-

Given numbers are 1.26, 1.155 and 0.21.

L.C.M. of 1260, 1155 and 210 is 13860.

Hence L.C.M. 1.26, 1.155 and 0.21 = 13.86.

 

5) D) \frac{4}{35}.

 

6) B) \frac{8}{5}.

Explanation:-

a-b=9, ab=360,

(a+b)^2=(a-b)^2+4ab

\Rightarrow (a+b)^2=(9)^2+4.360

\Rightarrow (a+b)^2=81+1440

\Rightarrow (a+b)^2=1521

\Rightarrow (a+b)=39

Hence a=24, b=15.
