#### Answer:

(i) In 14.83, we have:

Place value of 1 = 1 tens = 10

Place value of 4 = 4 ones = 4

Place value of 8 = 8 tenths = $\frac{8}{10}$

Place value of 3 = 3 hundredths = $\frac{3}{100}$

(ii) In 275.269, we have:

Place value of 2 = 2 hundreds = 200

Place value of 7 = 7 tens = 70

Place value of 5 = 5 ones = 5

Place value of 2 = 2 tenths = $\frac{2}{10}$

Place value of 6 = 6 hundredths = $\frac{6}{100}$

Place value of 9 = 9 thousandths = $\frac{9}{1000}$

(iii) In 46.075, we have:

Place value of 4 = 4 tens = 40

Place value of 6 = 6 ones = 6

Place value of 0 = 0 tenths = $\frac{0}{10}$= 0

Place value of 7 = 7 hundredths = $\frac{7}{100}$

Place value of 5 = 5 thousandths = $\frac{5}{1000}$

(iv) In 302.459, we have:

Place value of 3 = 3 hundreds = 300

Place value of 0 = 0 tens = 0

Place value of 2 = 2 ones = 2

Place value of 4 = 4 tenths = $\frac{4}{10}$

Place value of 5 = 5 hundredths = $\frac{5}{100}$

Place value of 7 = 7 tens = 70

Place value of 0 = 0 ones = 0

Place value of 3 = 3 tenths = $\frac{3}{10}$

Place value of 4 = 4 hundredths = $\frac{4}{100}$

(vi) In 186.209, we have:

Place value of 1 = 1 hundreds = 100

Place value of 8 = 8 tens = 80

Place value of 6 = 6 ones = 6

#### Question 3:

Write each of the following decimals in expanded form:

(i) 67.83

(ii) 283.61

(iii) 24.675

(iv) 0.294

(v) 8.006

(vi) 4615.72

#### Answer:

(i) 67.83

= 6 tens + 7 ones + 8 tenths + 3 hundredths

= $60+7+\frac{8}{10}+\frac{3}{100}$

(ii) 283.61

= 2 hundreds + 8 tens + 3 ones + 6 tenths + 1 hundredths

= $200+80+3+\frac{6}{10}+\frac{1}{100}$

(iii) 24.675

= 2 tens + 4 ones + 6 tenths + 7 hundredths + 5 thousandths

= $20+4+\frac{6}{10}+\frac{7}{100}+\frac{5}{1000}$

(iv) 0.294

= 2 tenths + 9 hundredths + 4 thousandths

= $\frac{2}{10}+\frac{9}{100}+\frac{4}{1000}$

(v) 8.006

= 8 ones + 0 tenths + 0 hundredths + 6 thousandths

= $8+\frac{0}{10}+\frac{0}{100}+\frac{6}{1000}$

(vi) 4615.72

= 4 thousands + 6 hundreds + 1 tens + 5 ones + 7 tenths + 2 hundredths

= $4000+600+10+5+\frac{7}{10}+\frac{2}{100}$

(vi) $30+9+\frac{4}{100}+\frac{8}{1000}$

#### Answer:

(i) $40+6+\frac{7}{10}+\frac{9}{100}$ = 46 + 0.7 + .09 = 46.79

(ii) $500+70+8+\frac{3}{10}+\frac{1}{100}+\frac{6}{1000}$ = 578 + 0.3 + 0.01 + 0.006 = 578.316

(iii) $700+30+1+\frac{8}{10}+\frac{4}{100}$ = 731 + 0.8 + 0.04 = 731.84

(iv) $600+5+\frac{7}{100}+\frac{9}{1000}$ = 605 + 0.07 + 0.009 = 605.079

(v) $800+5+\frac{8}{10}+\frac{6}{1000}$ = 805 + 0.8 + 0.006 = 805.806

(vi) $30+9+\frac{4}{100}+\frac{8}{1000}$ = 39 + 0.04 + 0.008 = 39.048

#### Question 5:

Convert each of the following into like decimals:

(i) 7.5, 64.23, 0.074

(ii) 0.6, 5.937, 2.36, 4.2

(iii) 1.6, 0.07, 3.58, 2.9

(iv) 2.5, 0.63, 14.08, 1.637

#### Answer:

(i) Each of the numbers has maximum 3 decimal places. So, we convert them into numbers having three decimal places by annexing suitable number of zeroes to the extreme right of the decimal part.

7.5 = 7.500

64.23 = 64.230

0.074 = 0.074

(ii) Each of the numbers has maximum 3 decimal places. So, we convert them into numbers having three decimal places by annexing suitable number of zeroes to the extreme right of the decimal part.

0.6 = 0.600

5.937 = 5.937

2.36 = 2.360

4.2 = 4.200

(iii) Each of the numbers has maximum 2 decimal places. So, we convert them into numbers having three decimal places by annexing suitable number of zeroes to the extreme right of the decimal part.

1.6 = 1.60

0.07 = 0.07

3.58 = 3.58

2.9 = 2.90

(iv) Each of the numbers has maximum 3 decimal places. So, we convert them into numbers having three decimal places by annexing suitable number of zeroes to the extreme right of the decimal part.

2.5 = 2.500

0.63 = 0.630

14.08 = 14.080

1.637 = 1.637

#### Question 6:

Fill in each of the place holders with the correct symbol > or <:

(i) $84.23\overline{)}76.35$

(ii) $7.608\overline{)}7.68$

(iii) $8.34\overline{)}8.43$

(iv) $12.06\overline{)}12.006$

(v) $3.85\overline{)}3.805$

(vi) $0.97\overline{)}1.07$

#### Answer:

(i) 84.23 > 76.35

Since 84 is greater than 76, 84.23 is greater than 76.35. (Comparing the whole number parts)

(ii) 7.608 < 7.680

Since 8 is greater than 0 at the hundredths place, 7.608 is smaller than 7.680.

(iii) 8.34 < 8.43

Since 4 is greater than 3 at the tenths place, 8.34 is smaller than 8.43.

(iv) 12.06 > 12.006

Since 6 is greater than 0 at the hundredths place, 12.06 is greater than 12.006.

(v) 3.850 > 3.805

Since 5 is greater than 0 at the hundredths place, 3.850 is greater than 3.805.

(vi) 0.97 < 1.07

Since 1 is greater than 0, 0.97 is smaller than 1.07. (Comparing the whole number parts)

Clearly, 73.030 > 8.730 > 8.073 > 7.330 > 7.300

Hence, the given decimals can be arranged in the descending order as follows:

73.03, 8.73, 8.073, 7.33 and 7.3

(ii) 3.3, 3.03, 30.3, 30.03, 3.003

Converting each decimal into like decimals:

3.300, 3.030, 30.300, 30.030, 3.003

Clearly, 30.300 > 30.030 > 3.300 > 3.030 > 3.003

#### Question 33:

Using decimals, express

(i) 8 kg 640 g in kilograms

(ii) 9 kg 37 g in kilograms

(iii) 6 kg 8 g in kilograms

#### Answer:

(i) 8 kg 640 g in kilograms:

8 kg + 640 gm = 8 kg + $\frac{640}{1000}$ kg

8 kg + 0.640 kg = 8.640 kg

(ii) 9 kg 37 g in kilograms:

9 kg + 37 gm = 9 kg + $\frac{37}{1000}$ kg

9 kg + 0.037 kg = 9.037 kg

(iii) 6 kg 8 g in kilograms:

6 kg + 8 gm = 6 kg + $\frac{8}{1000}$ kg

6 kg + 0.008 kg = 6.008 kg

#### Question 34:

Using decimals, express

(i) 4 km 365 m in kilometres

(ii) 5 km 87 m in kilometres

(iii) 3 km 6 m in kilometres

(iv) 270 m in kilometres

(v) 35 m in kilometres

(vi) 6 m in kilometres

#### Answer:

(i) 4 km 365 m in kilometres:

4 km + 365 m = 4 km + $\frac{365}{1000}$ km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

4 km + 0.365 km = 4.365 km

(ii) 5 km 87 m in kilometres:

5 km + 87 m = 5 km + $\frac{87}{1000}$ km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

5 km + 0.087 km = 5.087 km

(iii) 3 km 6 m in kilometres:

3 km + 6 m = 3 km + $\frac{6}{1000}$ km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

3 km + 0.006 km = 3.006 km

(iv) 270 m in kilometres:

$\frac{270}{1000}$ km = 0.270 km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

(v) 35 m in kilometres:

$\frac{35}{1000}$ km = 0.035 km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

(vi) 6 m in kilometres:

$\frac{6}{1000}$ km = 0.006 km [Since 1 km = 1000 m]

(ii) 8 kg 96 g in kilograms

(iii) 540 g in kilograms

(iv) 8 g in kilograms

#### Answer:

(i) 15 kg 850 g in kilograms:

15 kg + 850 gm = 15 kg + $\frac{850}{1000}$ kg [Since 1 kg = 1000 gm]

15 kg + 0.850 kg = 15.850 kg

(ii) 8 kg 96 g in kilograms:

8 kg + 96 gm = 8 kg + $\frac{96}{1000}$kg [Since 1 kg = 1000 gm]

8 kg + 0.096 kg = 8.096 kg

(iii) 540 g in kilograms:

540 gm = $\frac{540}{1000}$ kg = 0.540 kg [Since 1 kg = 1000 gm]

(iv) 8 g in kilograms:

8 gm = $\frac{8}{1000}$ kg = 0.008 kg [Since 1 kg = 1000 gm]

Using decimals, express

(i) Rs 18 and 25 paise in rupees

(ii) Rs 9 and 8 paise in rupees

(iii) 32 paise in rupees

(iv) 5 paise in rupees

#### Answer:

(i) Rs 18 and 25 paise in rupees:

Rs 18 + 25 paise = Rs 18 + Rs $\frac{25}{100}$ [Since Re 1 = 100 paise]

Rs 18 + Rs 0.25 = Rs 18.25

(ii) Rs 9 and 8 paise in rupees:

Rs 9 + 8 paise = Rs 9 + Rs $\frac{8}{100}$ [Since Re 1 = 100 paise]

Rs 9 + Rs 0.08 = Rs 9.08

(iii) 32 paise in rupees:

32 paise = Rs $\frac{32}{100}$ = Rs 0.32 [Since Re 1 = 100 paise]

(iv) 5 paise in rupees:

5 paise = Rs $\frac{5}{100}$ = Rs 0.05 [Since Re 1 = 100 paise]

(iv) 6.2 and 6.200 are equivalent decimals.

(v) 2.3, 3.41, 4.53, 5.61 are examples of like decimals.

#### Answer:

(i) True

This is because after converting them into like decimals, we get 3.20 > 3.02, which is true.

(ii) True

1 g = $\frac{1}{1000}$ kg

$\therefore $ 3 g = $\frac{3}{1000}$ = 0.003 kg

(iii) False

$\frac{341}{1000}$ = 0.341

This is because it is equal to 341 thousandths.

(iv) True

(v) False

In this case, every decimal should have 2 decimals in order to be like decimals. But, 2.3 has only 1 decimal.
