**Ex
1.1 Class 9 Maths Question 1.**

Is zero a rational number? Can you write it in the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0?

**Solution:
**Yes, zero is a rational number. We can write it in
the form p/q, where p and
q are integers and q ≠ 0.

For example, 0 = 0/1 = 0/2 = 0/3 = 0/-1 = 0/-2, etc. Denominator q can also be taken as negative integer.

**Ex 1.1 Class 9 Maths Question 2.
**Find six rational numbers between 3 and 4.

**Solution:
**To find six rational numbers between 3 and 4, write
3 as 30/10 and 4 as 40/10.

Rational numbers 31/10, 32/10, 33/10, 34/10, 35/10,
36/10, 37/10, 38/10, 39/10 lie between the rational numbers 30/10 and 40/10,
i.e., between 3 and 4.

Thus, the six rational numbers lying between 3 and 4
are:

31/10, 32/10, 33/10, 34/10, 35/10 and 36/10

**Ex 1.1 Class 9 Maths Question 3.****
**Find five rational numbers
between 3/5 and 4/5.

**Solution:****
**Since, we need to find five
rational numbers between 3/5 and 4/5, therefore, multiply numerator and
denominator by 10. We get 30/50 and 40/50.

Rational
numbers 31/50, 32/50, 33/50, 34/50, 35/50, 36/50, 37/50, 38/50 and 39/50 lie
between 30/50 and 40/50, i.e., between 3/5 and 4/5.

Thus,
five rational numbers between 3/5 and 4/5 are

31/50,
32/50, 33/50, 34/50 and 35/50

**Ex 1.1 Class 9 Maths Question 4.****
**State whether the following
statements are true or false. Give reasons for your answers.

(i) Every natural number is a whole number.

(ii) Every integer is a whole number.

(iii) Every rational number is a whole number.

**Solution:****
**(i) True

∵ The collection of all natural numbers along with 0 is called the set of whole numbers.

(ii) False

∵ Negative integers are not whole numbers.

(iii) False

∵ Rational numbers are of the form p/q, where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0, and q does not divide p completely that are not whole numbers.
