**Playing With Numbers – Exercise 5B all Questions Solution**

**(1) Use brackets to write mathematical expression for each of the following statements.**

**Solution :**

(a) [7 ÷ (12 – 5)

(b) [(9 + 4) × 6]

(c) [(13 + 12 – (9 – 2)

(d) [(5 × 2) + (18 – 15)]

**(2) Simplify the following mathematical expressions.**

**Solution :**

**(a)** 42 – [20 – {19 – (14 – 8 – 4}]

= 42 – [20 – {19 – (14 – 12}]

= 42 – [20 – {19 – 2}]

= 42 – [20 – 17]

= 42 – 3

= 39

**(b)** 910 – [80 {24 – (77 – 50}]

= 910 – [80 + {34 – 27}]

= 910 – [80 + 7]

= 910 – 87

= 823

**(c)** 54 + 9 (43 – 26 – 2) ÷ 3

= 54 + 9 (43 – 28) ÷ 3

= 54 + 9 × 15 ÷ 3

= 54 + 135 ÷ 3

= 54 + 45

= 99

**(d)** 555 + {22 + 343 – (16 ÷ 8 + 13 – 15)}

= 555 + {22 + 343 – (2 + 13 – 15)}

= 555 + {22 + 343 – (15 – 15)

= 555 + 22 + 343

= 920

**(e)** 91 – [22 – {16 ÷ (39 + 30 of 3 – 40)}]

= 91 – [22 – {16 ÷ 93 + 3 × 3 – 40)}]

= 91 – [22 – {16 ÷ (39 + 9 – 40)}]

= 91 – [22 – {16 ÷ (48 – 40)}]

= 91 – [22 – {16 ÷ 8}]

= 91 – [22 – 2]

= 91 – 20

= 71

**(f)** 27 + 3 – [29 – {6 ÷ 3 – (5 – 6 ÷ 3) ÷ 3}]

= 30 – [29 – {6 ÷ 3 – (5 – 2) ÷ 3]

= 30 – [29 – {2 – 1}

= 30 – [29 – 1]

= 30 – 28

= 2
