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.
