Q.1 Observe the patterns of digits made from line segments of equal length. You will find such segmented digits on the display of electronic watches or calculators.

If the number of digits formed is taken to be n, the number of segments required to form n digits is given by the algebraic expression appearing on the right of each pattern. How many segments are required to form 5, 10, 100 digits of the kind


Answer :

(a) The number of line segments required to form n digits is given by the expressions. = 5n+1
For figures, the number of line segments = 5 × 5 + 1 = 25 + 1 = 26
For figures, the number of line segments = 5 × 10 + 1 = 50 + 1 = 51
For figures, the number of line segments = 5 × 100 + 1 = 500 + 1 = 501
(a) For figures, the number of line segments =3 ×5 + 1 = 15 + 1 = 16
For figures, the number of line segments = 3 × 10 + 1 = 30 + 1 = 31
For figures, the number of line segments = 3 × 100 + 1 = 300 + 1 = 301
(c) For 5 figures, the number of line numbers = 5 × 5 + 2 = 25 + 2 = 27
For 10 figures, the number of line segments = 5 × 10 + 2 = 50 + 2 = 52
For 100 figures, the number of line segments = 5 × 100 + 2 = 500 + 2 = 502
