(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

(vi) 6 m in kilometres

(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]

(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 + 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

(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]

#### Question 19:

If the school bags of Neelam and Garima weigh 6 kg 80 g and 5 kg 265 g respectively, whose bag is heavier and by how much?

Weight of Neelam's school bag =       6080 g  {Converting into grams: 6 kg + 80 g = (6000 + 80) g =  6080 g}
Weight of Garima's school bag =     $-$5265 g  {Converting into grams: 5 kg + 265 g = (5000 + 265)g = 5265 g}
Difference of the weights of bags =      815 g
Thus, the weight of Neelam's school bag is more than that of Garima's school bag by 815 grams, i.e. by 0.815 kg.

#### Question 20:

Kunal purchased a notebook for Rs 19.75, a pencil for Rs 3.85 and a pen for Rs 8.35 from a book shop. He gave a 50-rupee note to the shopkeeper. What amount did he get back?

Cost of the notebook =  Rs 19.75
Cost of the pencil =        Rs 3.85
Cost of the pen =        + Rs 8.35
Total cost payable =      Rs 31.95

Total money paid =      Rs 50.00
Total money spent = $-$Rs 31.95
Balance =                   Rs 18.05

Thus, Kunal got back Rs 18.05 from the shopkeeper.

#### Question 21:

Sunita purchased 5 kg 75 g of fruits and 3 kg 465 g of vegetables, and put them in a bag. If this bag with these contents weighs 9 kg, find the weight of the empty bag.

Weight of the fruits =                                  5 kg 075 g
Weight of the vegetables =                       + 3 kg 465 g
Total weight of the contents of the bag =      8 kg 540 g

Total weight of the bag with its contents =    9 kg 000 g
Total weight of the contents of the bag =  $-$ 8 kg 540 g
Weight of the empty bag =                           0 kg 460 g
Thus, the weight of the empty bag is 460 grams.

#### Question 22:

The distance between Reeta's house and her office is 14 km. She covers 10 km 65 m by scooter, 3 km 75 m by bus and the rest on foot. How much distance does she cover by walking?

Converting into metres:
10 km 65 m = (10 + 0.065) m = 10.065 m
3 km 75 m = (3 + 0.075) m = 3.075 m

Distance covered by the scooter =                             10.065 km
Distance covered by the bus =                                 + 3.075 km
Total distance covered by the bus and the scooter =   13.140 km

Total distance between the house and the office =       14.000 km
Total distance covered by the bus and the scooter = $-$13.140 km
Distance covered on foot =                                          0.860 km

$\therefore$ Distance covered by walking = 0.860 km = 860 metres

1 cm = $\frac{1}{100}$ m
$\therefore$ 105 cm = $\frac{105}{100}$ m = (1 + $\frac{5}{100}$) m = (1 + 0.05) m = 1.05 m

#### Question 3:

Express 6 km 5 m as km using decimals.

1 m = $\frac{1}{1000}$ km
$\therefore$ 5 m = $\frac{5}{1000}$ km = 0.005 km
6 km 5 m = (6 + 0.005) km = 6.005 km

#### Question 4:

Express 8 m as kilometre using decimals.

1 m = $\frac{1}{1000}$ km
$\therefore$8 m = $\frac{8}{1000}$ km = 0.008 km

#### Question 5:

26.40
163.05
8.75
+   5.60
203.80

#### Question 6:

Subtract 0.528 from 3.2.

Converting into like decimals and then subtracting:
3.200
$-$ 0.528
2.672

#### Question 7:

What is to be added to 63.5 to get 71?

We subtract 63.5 from 71 in order to find the number that is to be added to 63.5 to make it 71.
Converting into like decimals and then subtracting:
71.0
$-$ 63.5
7.5

#### Question 8:

What is to be subtracted from 13 to get 5.4?

We subtract 5.4 from 13 in order to find the number that is to be subtracted from 13 to get 5.4.
Converting into like decimals and then subtracting:
13.0
$-$  5.4
7.6
Thus, we need to subtract 7.6 from 13 to get 5.4.

#### Question 9:

Arrange the following decimals in descending order:
6.5, 6.05, 6.54, 6.4 and 6.45

6.5, 6.05, 6.54, 6.4 and 6.45
Converting into like decimals:
6.50, 6.05, 6.54, 6.40 and 6.45
Clearly, 6.54 > 6.50 > 6.45 > 6.40 > 6.05

#### Question 20:

Fill in the blanks.
(i) 1 m = ...... km
(ii) 10 ml = ...... 1
(iii) 16 kg 5 g = ...... kg
(iv) 2 m 8 cm = ...... m
(v) 3.02, 4.75, 1.63 are examples of ...... decimals.

(i) 1 m = $\frac{1}{1000}$ km = 0.001 km

(ii) 10 mL = $\frac{1}{100}$ 1 = 0.01 L

(iii) 16 kg 5 g = (16 + 0.005) kg = 16.005 kg
(iv) 2 m 8 cm = (2 + 0.08) m = 2.08 m
(v) 3.02, 4.75, 1.63 are examples of like decimals.

#### Question 21:

Write 'T' for true and 'F' for false for each of the statements given below:
(i) 3.02 < 3.2.
(ii) 3 g = 0.003 kg.
(iii) $\frac{341}{1000}=3.410.$
(iv) 6.2 and 6.200 are equivalent decimals.
(v) 2.3, 3.41, 4.53, 5.61 are examples of like decimals.

(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.
