AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 6

Given:

If the product of two whole numbers is 1, then one or both of them will be 1.

To do: 

We have to find whether the given statement is true.

Solution:

If the product of two whole numbers is 1, then both of them should be 1.

For example:

$1 \times 1 = 1$

The product of 1 and any other whole numbers is not equal to 1.

For example:

$1 \times 3 = 3$

The given statement is false.

We can say that if the product of two whole numbers is 1, then both of them are equal to 1.
