Fractions Exercise 5.1 Solution

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) 2/3 in word,

= Two-thirds

(b) 1/4 in word,

= One-fourths

(c) 3/7 in word,

= Three-sevenths

(d) 4/15 in word,

= Four-fifteenths

Question no – (4)

Solution :

 Fractions Numerator Denominator (a) 2/5 2 5 (c) 6/17 6 17 (b) 8/15 8 15 (d) 4/9 4 9

Question no – (5)

Solution :

As per the question,

Nidhi has = 10 chocolates.

She gives to Sarika = half of them

Chocolates she give to Sarika = ?

1/2 of 10

= 5

Thus, she gives 5 chocolates to Sarika.

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Leena has 28 stamps.

She gives 7 stamps to Meena.

Stamps Leena give to Meena = ?

Now, Leena has 28 stamps,

1 stamps = 1/18

7 stamps = 7/28 = 1/4

Thus, Leena gives Meena one-fourth of the stamps.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

(a) We know that, A day = 24 hours

1 hour = 1/24

Hence, 6 hour = 6/24 = 1/4

Therefore, 1/4 fraction of a day is 6 hours.

(b) First, we know that,

An hour = 60 minutes

1 minute – 1/60

15 minutes = 15/60 1/4

So, 1/4 fraction of an hour is 15 minutes.

(c) We all know that,

1 year = 12 months.

1 year = 1/12 months

So, 1/12 fraction of a year is 1 month.

(d) We all know that, A week = 7 days

1 day = 1/7

3 da = 3/7

Thus, 3 days of a week is 3/7 of a week.

(e) First, we know that,

Total words in English Alphabet is = 26

Total vowels in English Alphabet is = 5

Now, Fraction = 5/26

Thus, 5/26 of English alphabet is the set of vowels.

(f) We know that,

Prime numbers between 1 and 100 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53,
59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97.

Total Prime numbers = 25

Now, Fraction,

= 25/100

= 1/4

Hence, 1/4 fraction of numbers between 1 and 100 is prime numbers.

Question no – (8)

Solution :

(a) fresh?

= Total mangoes = 60

Fresh mangoes,

= 60 – 12

= 48
Fraction

= 48/60

= 4/5

Thus, 4/5 fraction of the mangoes is fresh.

(b) rotten?

Total mangoes = 60,

rotten = 12

Fraction,

= 12/60

= 1/5

So, 1/5 fraction of the mangoes is rotten.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

(a) Three (3) 1/3 s’ will make one whole.

(b) Total 6 (six) 1/6 will make one whole.

Question no – (10)

Solution :

As per the given question,

A bag contains 20 balls of which 3 balls are green,

10 balls are red and the remaining are blue.

Total balls = 20,

Green = 3

Red = 10

Blue = 20 – (3 + 10)

= 20 – 13

= 7

Fractions of Green balls = 3/20,

Fractions of Red balls = 1/2,

Fractions of Blue balls = 7/20

Question no – (11)

Solution :

We know that, The all natural numbers are 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45,

∴ The number of all numbers

= (45 – 30) + 12

= 16

The number of odd numbers = 8

Now, The required fraction,

= 8/16

= 1/2

Thus, 1/2 fraction of these numbers is odd.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

We know,

The Natural numbers are 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113

Prime numbers = (113, 107, 109, 113)

Total numbers,

= (113 – 102) + 1

= 12

Prime numbers = 4

Now, the required fraction,

= 4/12

= 1/3

Thus, 1/3 fraction of them are prime numbers.

Question no – (13)

Solution :

According to the question,

The total girls = 6

In first team = 3

The required fraction,

= 3/6

= 1/2

So, 1/2 fraction of the girls is in the first team.

She covers 4 1/2 km by Metro train and the remaining by rickshaw

Sarika cover by rickshaw,

= (5 2/3 – 4 1/2)

= 17/3 – 9/2

= (17 × 2) – (9 × 3)/6

= 34 – 27/6

= 7/6 km

Hence, Sarika cover 7/6 km by rickshaw.

Question no – (14)

Solution :

(a) Subtract 3 1/4 from 4 2/3 …(according to the question)

So now, 4 2/3 – 3 1/4 = 14/3 – 13/4

= (14 × 4) – 913 × 3)/12

= 56 – 39/12

= 17/12

(b) Subtract 7/18 from 15/27 ….(according to the question)

So now, 15/27 – 7/18

= (15 × 2) – (7 × 3)/54

= 30 – 21/54

= 9/54

= 1/6

Question no – (15)

Solution :

As per the given question,

The perimeter of a triangle is 15 1/7 m.

The sum of its two sides is 9 1/14 m,

The length of the third side = ?

Now, The length of the third side,

= 15 1/7 – 9 1/14

= 106/7 – 127/14

= (106 × 2) – (127 × 1)/14

= 212 – 127/14

= 85/14

Thus, the length of the third side is 85/14.

We can also solve the problem in this way,

= 15 1/7 – 9 1/14

= (15 + 1/7) – (9 + 1/14)

= (15 – 9) + (1/7 – 1/14)

= 6 + 1/14

= 6 1/14

= 85/14 m
