# State whether the statements are True or False.

The successor of 0 × (–25) is 1 × (–25)

Answer :

Successors of numbers are usually found out by adding 1 to it.

For example: Successor of 1 = 1 + 1 = 2

Successor of 15 = 15 + 1 = 16

Successor of -20 = -20 + 1 = -19

Similarly, we will try to solve 0 × (-25) and then add 1 to it.

0 × (-25) = - 0 × 25 = 0 [∵ multiplying anything by 0 gives 0]

Now, add 1 to it. That is,

0 + 1 = 1

⇒ 1 is the successor of 0 × (-25)

Now, let us solve 1 × (-25).

1 × (-25) = -25

And -25 ≠ 1

So, 1 × (-25) is not a successor of 0 × (-25).

**Thus, this is a false statement.**
