Question no – (3)

Solution :

(i) Given, total rice is 9 kg.

Total person is 5.

This, each person

= 9/5

= (5 + 4)/5

= 1 4/5 kg

Hence, for each person get 1 4/5 kg rice.

(ii) We have to make 5 shirts of the same size and we have given that 11 meters cloth.

To find how much cloth is needed for one shirt.

Now, total cloth = 11 meters

Make shirts = 5

Thus, for 1 shirt

= 11/5

= (2 × 5 + 1)/5

= 2 1/5 meters cloth.

Therefore, 2 1/5 meters cloth needed for one shirt.

Practice Set – (10) :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) 6 1/3 + 2 1/3

= 6 + 2 + 1/3 + 1/3

= 8 + 2/3

= 8 2/3

(ii) 1 1/4 + 3 1/2

= 1 + 3 + 1/4 + 1/2

= 4 + 1/4 + 2/4

= 4 + 3/4

= 4 3/4

(iii) 5 1/5 + 2 1/7

= 5 + 2 + 1/5 + 1/7

= 7 + 1 × 7/5 × 7 + 1 × 5/7 × 5

= 7 + 7/35 + 5/35

= 7 + 12/35

= 7 12/35

(iv) 3 1/5 + 2 1/3

= 3 + 2 + 1/5 + 1/3

= 5 + 1 × 3/5 × 3 + 1 × 5/3 × 5

= 5 + 3/15 + 5/15

= 5 + 8/15

= 5 8/15

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(i) 3 1/3 – 1 1/4

= 3-1 + 1/3 – 1/4

= 2 + 1 × 4/3 × 4 – 1 × 3/4 × 3

= 2 + 4/12 – 3/12

= 2 + 1/ 12

= 2 1/12

(ii) 5 1/2 – 3 1/3

= 5-3 + 1/2 – 1/3

= 2 + 1 × 3/2 × 3 – 1 × 2/3 × 2

= 2 + 3/6 – 2/6

= 2 + 1/6

= 2 1/6

(iii) 7 1/8 – 6 1/10

= 7-6 + 1/8 – 1/10

= 1 + 1 × 10/8 × 10 – 1 × 8 /10 × 8

= 1 + 10/80 – 8/80

= 1 + 2/80

= 1 + 1/40

= 1 1/40

(iv) 7 1/2 – 3 1/5

= 7-3 + 1/2 – 1/5

= 4 + 1 × 5/2 × 5 – 1 × 2/5 × 2

= 4 + 5/10 – 2 /10

= 4 + 3/10

= 4 3/10

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(1) Given, Suyash bought 2 1/2 kg of sugar and Ashish bought 3 1/2 kg.

Suyash = 2 1/2 kg bought sugar

Ashish = 3 1/2 kg bought sugar

Total = 2 1/2 + 3 1/2

= 2 + 3 + 1/2 + 1/2

= 5 + 2/2

= 5 + 1

= 6 kg bought sugar

Now, for 1 kg = ₹32

Thus, for 6 kg = 6 × 32 = ₹192

(2) Given, Aradhana grows potatoes in 2/5 part of her garden, greens in 1/3 part.

Let b part be grows brinjals in her garden.

Thus, 2/5 + 1/3 + b = 1

= 6/15 + 5/15 + b = 1 ; 11/15 + b = 15/15

= b = 15/15 – 11/15 = 4/15 part

Hence, 4/15 part be grows brinjals in her garden.

Practice Set – (12) :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) 7/5 × 1/4

= 7/5 × 1/4

= 7/20

(ii) 6/7 × 2/5

= 6/7 × 2/5

= 12/35

(iii) 5/9 × 4/9

= 5/9 × 4/9

= 20/81

(iv) 4/11 × 2/7

= 4/11 × 2/7

= 8/77

(v) 1/5 × 7/2

= 1/5 × 7/2

= 7/10

(vi) 9/7 × 7/8

= 9/7 × 7/8

= 63/56

(vii) 5/6 × 6/5

= 5/6 × 6/5

= 30/30

= 1

(viii) 6/17 × 3/2

= 6/17 × 3/2

= 18/34

= 9/17

Question no – (2)

Solution :

Given, Ashokrao planted bananas on 2/7 of his field of 21 acres.

We must find out 2/7 of 21 acres

Thus, 21/1 * 2/7

= 21*2/1*7

= 42/7

= 6

Therefore, the area for the Banana plantation will be 6 acers

Practice Set – (13) :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) 7

= It’s reciprocal is 1/7

(ii) 11/3

= It’s reciprocal is 3/11

(iii) 5/13

= It’s reciprocal is 13/5

(iv) 2

= It’s reciprocal is 1/2

(v) 6/7

= It’s reciprocal is 7/6

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(i) 2/3 ÷ 1/4

= 2/3 ÷ 1/4

= 2/3 × 4/1

= 8/3

(ii) 5/9 ÷ 3/2

= 5/9 ÷ 3/2

= 5/9 × 2/3

= 10/27

(iii) 3/7 ÷ 5/11

= 3/7 ÷ 5/11

= 3/7 × 11/5

= 33/35

(iv) 11/12 ÷ 4/7

= 11/12 ÷ 4/7

= 11/12 × 7/4

= 77/48

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Given, 420 students participating in the Swachh Bharat campaign.

They cleaned 42/75 part of the town, Sevagram.

Now, 42/75 ÷ 420

= 42/75 × 1/420

= 42 × 1/75 × 420

= 1/75 × 10

= 1/750

Hence, 1/750 part of Sevagram did each student clean.
