Fractions Exercise 7.1 Solutions :

(8) Write the natural numbers from 2 to 12. What fraction of them are prime numbers?

Solution :

Natural numbers from 2 to 12 are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Prime no is are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11,

∴ Fraction is 5/11

(9) Write the natural numbers from 102 to 113. What fraction of them are prime numbers?

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.

Fractions Exercise 7.2 Solution :

(4) Find the equivalent fraction of 3/5 having

(a) denominator 20

(b) numerator 9

(c) denominator 30

(d) numerator 27

Solution :

(b) Equivalent fraction of 3/5 having numerator 9 is

= 9/15

(c) Equivalent fraction of 3/5 having denominator 30 is

= 18/30

(5) Find the equivalent fraction of 36/48 with

(i) Numerator 9

(ii) Denominator 4

Solution :

(i) With numerator 9

= 36/48

= 36 ÷ 4/48 ÷ 4

= 9/12

(ii) With denominator 4

= 36/48

= 36 ÷ 12/48 ÷ 12

= 3/4

(6) Check whether the given fractions are equivalent :

(i) 5/9, 30/54

(ii) 3/10, 12/50

(iii) 7/13, 5/11

Solution :

(i) 5/9, 30/54

= 5/9 = 5 × 6/9 × 6

= 30/54

∴ These are equivalent

(ii) 3/10, 12/50

∴ 3/10

= 3 × 4/10 × 43

= -19/40

∴ These are not equivalent

(iii) 7/13, 5/11

= 7/13 × 5/5

= 35/65

Now, 5/11 × 7/7

= 35/77

∴ These are not equivalent

Fractions Exercise 7.3 Solutions :

(2) Compare the following fractions and put an appropriate sign :

(a) 3/6 __ 5/6

(b) 1/7 __ 1/4

(c) 4/5 __ 0/5

Solution :

(a) 3/6 < 5/6

(b) 1/7 < 1/4

(c) 4/5 > 0/5

(6) The following fractions represent just three different numbers. Separate them in to three groups of equal fractions by changing each one to its simplest from:

(i) 2/12

(ii) 3/15

(iii) 8/50

(iv) 16/100

(v) 10/60

(vi) 15/75

(vii) 12/60

(viii) 16/96

(ix) 12/75

(x) 12/72

(ix) 3/18

(xii) 4/25

Solution :

(i) 2/12

= 1/6

(ii) 3/15

= 1/5

(iii) 8/50

= 4/25

(iv) 16/100

= 4/25

(v) 10/60

= 1/6

(vi) 15/75

= 1/5

(vii) 12/60

= 1/5

(viii) 16/96

= 1/6

(ix) 12/75

= 4/25

(x) 12/72

= 1/6

(ix) 3/18

= 3/18 = 1/6

(xii) 4/25

= 4/25

(7) Find answers to the following. Write and indicate how you solved them.

(i) Is 5/9 equal to 4/5?

(ii) Is 9/16 equal to 5/9?

(iii) Is 4/5 equal to 16/20?

(iv) Is 1/15 equal to 4/30?

Solution :

(i) 5/9 = 4/5

∴ 5 × 5 = 4 × 9

= 25 ≠ 36

(ii) 9/16 = 5/9

∴ 9 × 9 = 16 × 5

= 81 ≠ 80

(iii) 4/5 = 16/20

∴ 4 × 20 = 5 × 16

∴ 80 = 80

(iv) No ; because

= 1/15 = 1*2/15*2 = 2/30

Since, 2/30 < 4/40 that is 1/15 < 4/30.

(9) Rafiq exercised for 2/3 hour, while Rohit exercised for 3/4 hour. who exercised for a longer time

Solution :

Rafiq exercise = 2/3 hour

Rohit exercise = 3/4 hour

∴ 2/3 3/4

= 8 < 9

So, 2/3 < 3/4.

∴ Rohit exercise more.

Fractions Exercise 7.6 Solutions :

Solution :

(a)

 2/3 4/3 2 1/3 2/3 1 1/3 2/3 1

(b)

 1/2 1/3 5/6 1/3 1/4 7/12 1/6 1/12 1/4

(6) A piece of wire 7/8 metres long broke into two pieces. One piece was 1/4 meter long. How long is the other piece?

Solution :

A wire 7/8 metres long broke into two pieces.

One piece was 1/4 meter long

∴ Length of the other piece,

= (9/8 – 1/4)

= 7 -2/8

= 5/8 meter

So, the length of the other piece 5/8 metre.

(9) Ravish takes 2 1/5 minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes 7/4 minutes to do the same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?

Solution :

Ravish takes,

= 2 1/5 minutes

= 11/5 min

Rahul takes,

= 7/4 min

L,C,M of 4, 5 = 20

∴ 11/5 × 20 = 44 minutes (Ravish)

7/4 × 20 = 35 minute (Rahul)

∴ Ravish take less time.
