Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 Exercise 2.1 Solutions
 Write the next three natural numbers after 10999.
Solution : Next 3 Natural Numbers Are 11000,11001,11002
 Write the three whole numbers occurring just before 10001.
Solution : Next 3 Whole Numbers Are 10000,9999,9998
 Which is the smallest whole number?
Solution : Zero [0] is the smallest whole number.
 How many whole numbers are there between 32 and 53?
Solution : there are total 20 whole numbers are there in between 32 and 53.
 Write the successor of:
(a) 2440701 (b) 100199 (c) 1099999 (d) 2345670
Solution :
2440701 + 1 = Â 2440702
100199 + 1 = 100200
1099999 + 1 = 1100000
2345670 + 1 = 2345671
 Write the predecessor of:
(a) 94 (b) 10000 (c) 208090 (d) 7654321
Solution :
predecessor of 94 = 941=93
predecessor of 10000 = 100001 = 9999
predecessor of 208090 = 2080901=208089
predecessor of 7654321 =Â 76543211 = 7654320
 In each of the following pairs of numbers, state which whole number is on the left of the other number on the number line. Also write them with the appropriate sign (>, <) between them.
530, 503 (b) 370, 307 (c) 98765, 56789 (d) 9830415, 10023001
Solution:
(a) 530 > 503; So, On the number line, 503 appears to the left of 530.
(b) 370 > 307; So, On the number line, 307 appears to the left of 370.
(c) 98765 > 56789; So, On the number line, 56789 appears to the left of 98765.
(d) 9830415 < 10023001; So, On the number line, 9830415 appears to the left of 10023001.

(a) Zero is the smallest natural number. [ F ]
(b) 400 is the predecessor of 399. [ F ]
(c) Zero is the smallest whole number. [ T ]
(d) 600 is the successor of 599. [ T ]
(e) Allnatural numbers are whole numbers. [ T ]
(f) All whole numbers are natural numbers. [ F ]
(g) The predecessor of a twodigit number is never a single digit number. [ F ]
(h) 1 is the smallest whole number. [ F ]
(i) The natural number 1 has no predecessor. [ T ]
(j) The whole number 1 has no predecessor. [ F ]
(k) The whole number 13 lies between 11 and 12. [ F ]
(l) The whole number 0 has no predecessor. [ T ]
(m) The successor of a twodigit number is always a twodigit number. [ F ]
Chapter 2 – Whole NumbersÂ (Ex. 2.2)
 Find the sum by suitable rearrangement:
(a) 837 + 208 + 363
Solution :
If we use associative property then we add 837+363 first
 [837+363] + 208
 1200+208 = 1408
(b) 1962 + 453 + 1538 + 647
WithÂ associative property then we add
 [1962+1538]+[453+647]
 3500+1100 = 4600
The term “associative property” refers to the grouping of numbers.
 Find the product by suitable arrangement:
(a) 2 x 1768 x 50Â
Solution â€“ [2 x 50] x 1768 100 x 1768 = 176800 
(b) 4 x 166 x 25
Solution â€“ [4 x 25 ] x 166 100 x 166 = 16600 
(c) 8 x 291 x 125
Solution â€“ [125 x 8 ] x 291
