## UP Board Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Real Numbers

Real Numbers 1. Euclid’s Algorithm for HCF: Euclid, a Greek mathematician, devised an interesting method to find the HCF of two numbers. This method is known as Euclid’s Algorithm. An algorithm is a stepwise process to solve a problem. Steps taken to find the HCF of two numbers are as under: 1. Identify the greater …

## UP Board Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 1 Exercise 1.4 Real Numbers

EXERCISE 1.4 1. Without actually performing the long division, state whether the following rational numbers will have a terminating decimal expansion or a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion : Sol. We know that if the denominator of a rational number has no prime factors other than 2 or 5, then it is expressible as a terminating, …
