Question 10:

The total weight of some bags of wheat is 1743 kg. If each bag weights 49.8 kg, how many bags are there?

Answer:

Let the number of bags of wheat be x.

Given:

Weight of x bags = 1,743 kg

Weight of one bag = 49.8 kg

Therefore, 49.8 × x = 1,743
x = 174349.8=1743 ×10498
       = 35

Thus, there are 35 bags of wheat.

Question 11:

Shikha cuts 50 m of cloth into pieces of 1.25 m each. How many pieces does she get?

Answer:

Length of cloth = 50 m

Length of one piece of cloth = 1.25 m

Let the number of pieces be x.

 Number of pieces​ of cloth × Length of each piece of cloth = Total length of cloth

x ×1.25 = 50
x = 501.25
   = 50 ×100125=40

Thus, she gets 40 pieces of 1.25 m cloth from a total of 50 m.

Question 12:

Each side of a rectangular polygon is 2.5 cm in length. The perimeter of the polygon is 12.5 cm. How many sides does the polygon have?

Answer:

Length of each side of the polygon  = 2.5 cm

Perimeter of the polygon = 12.5 cm

Let the number of sides of the polygon be z.

 2.5 × z = 12.5 ( Perimeter = Length of one side multiplied by the number of sides)
or, z = 12.52.5=5

Thus, the polygon has 5 sides.

Answer:

One decimal is 12.46.

Let the other decimal be x.

According to the question:

12.46 × x = 42.987
 x =42.98712.46=42987×1001246×1000=4298712460=3.45

Thus, the other decimal is 3.45.

Question 14:

The weight of 34 bags of sugar is 3483.3 kg. If all bags weigh equally, find the weight of each bag.

Answer:

Number of bags = 34

Weight of 34 bags = 3483.3 kg

 Weight of one bag = Weight of 34 bagsNumber of bags
3483.334=34833340=102.45

Thus, weight of each bag = 102.45 kg

Question 15:

How many buckets of equal capacity can be filled from 586.5 litres of water, if each bucket has capacity of 8.5 litres?

Answer:

Capacity of one bucket = 8.5 litres

Total water in all buckets = 586.5 litres

Let the number of buckets with equal capacity be x.

According to the question:

8.5 × x = 586.5
x =586.58.5=586585=69

Thus, there are 69 buckets.

Answer:


We have,

12 × 15 = 180

It can be seen that the sum of the decimals in the given decimals is 3 + 2 = 5.

So, the product must contain 5 places of decimals.

∴ 0.012 × 0.15 = 0.00180 = 0.0018

Hence, the correct answer is option (d).

Answer:


The decimal which should be subtracted from 0.1 to get 0.06 can be obtained by subtracting 0.06 from 0.1.

Converting the given decimals into like decimals, we have 0.10 and 0.06.

Now,

0.10-0.060.04

∴ Required decimal = 0.1 − 0.06 = 0.04

Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

Question 11:

Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

What should be added to 5.09 to get 5.5?

(a) 0.41                                         (b) 0.59                                         (c) 0.49                                         (d) 0.95                                       

Answer:


The decimal number which should be added to 5.09 to get 5.5 is obtained by subtracting 5.09 from 5.5.

Converting the given decimals to like decimals, we have 5.09 and 5.50.

Now,

5.50-5.090.41

∴ Required decimal = 5.50 − 5.09 = 0.41

Thus, 0.41 must be added to 5.09 to get 5.5.

Hence, the correct answer is option (a).

Answer:


We have,

3 × 3 × 3 = 27

The sum of the decimal places in the given decimals is 1 + 1 + 1 = 3.

So, the product must contain 3 places of decimals.

∴ 0.3 × 0.3 × 0.3 = 0.027

Hence, the correct answer is (c).

Answer:


In order to find the product, we first multiply 8 by 25.

We have, 25 × 8 = 200

Now, 0.25 has 2 decimal places and 0.8 has 1 decimal place.

The sum of the decimal places is 2 + 1 = 3.

So, the product must contain 3 places of decimals.

∴ 0.25 × 0.8 = 0.200 = 0.2

Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

Question 14:

Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

5 kg 5 g written in decimal notation is

(a) 5.5 kg                             (b) 5.05 kg                             (c) 5.005 kg                             (d) 5.0005 kg

Disclaimer: The units are missing from the options given in the book.                                      

Answer:


We know that,

1 g = 11000 kg

Now,

5 kg 5 g = 5 kg + 5 g

              = 5 kg + 51000 kg

              = 5 kg + 0.005 kg

              = 5.005 kg

∴ 5 kg 5 g = 5.005 kg

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

Answer:

In order to find the product, we first multiply 2 by 5.

We have, 2 × 5 = 10

Now, 0.02 has 2 decimal places and 0.05 has 2 decimal places.

The sum of the decimal places is 2 + 2 = 4.

So, the product must contain 4 places of decimals.

∴ 0.02 × 0.05 = 0.0010 = 0.001

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

(a) 5.5 km                         (b) 5.05 km                         (c) 5.005 km                         (d) 5.0005 km

Answer:

We know that,

1 m = 11000 km

Now,

5 km 5 m = 5 km + 5 m

              = 5 km + 51000 km

              = 5 km + 0.005 km

              = 5.005 km

∴ 5 km 5 m = 5.005 km

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

The value of 2.2 × 0.2 × 0.001 is

(a) 4.2                                         (b) 0.00044                                        (c) 4.4                                         (d) None of these                                       

Answer:


In order to find the product, we first multiply 22 by 2.

We have, 22 × 2 = 44

Now, 2.2 has 1 decimal place, 0.2 has 1 decimal place and 0.001 has 3 decimal places.

The sum of the decimal places is 1 + 1 + 3 = 5.

So, the product must contain 5 places of decimals.

∴ 2.2 × 0.2 × 0.001 = 0.00044

Thus, the value of 2.2 × 0.2 × 0.001 is 0.00044.

Hence, the correct answer is option (b).

Answer:


It is given that,

14 × 4 = 56

Now, 0.014 has 3 decimal places.

So, the required product must contain 3 places of decimals.

∴ 0.014 × 4 = 0.056

Hence, the correct answer is option (c).

(i)  We have 8 hundredths.
∴ 8100 = 0.08

(ii) We have 2 tens, 9 tenths and 4 hundredths.
∴ 20 + 910 + 4100 = 20 + 0.9 + 0.04
= 20.94

(iii) We have 2 tens, 3 ones , 2 tenths and 6 thousandths.
23+ 210+ 61000= 23 +0.2 + 0.006
= 23.2006

Question 7:

What is to be added to 36.85 to get 59.41?

Answer:

Let x be added to 36.85 to get 59.41.

36.85 + x = 59.41

or, x = 59.41 - 36.85
        = 22.56

Thus, we need to add 22.56 to 36.85 to get 59.41.

Question 8:

What is to be subtracted from 17.1 to get 2.051?

Answer:

Let x be subtracted from 17.1 to get 2.051.

 17.1 - x = 2.051

or, x = 17.1 - 2.051
         =  15.049

Thus, we need to subtract 15.049 from 17.1 to get 2.051.

Question 9:

By how much should 34.79 be increased to get 70.15?

Answer:

Let 34.79 be increased by x to get 70.15.

 34.79 + x = 70.15

or, x = 70.15 - 34.79
        = 35.36

Thus, 34.79 should be increased by 35.36 to get 70.15.
