Decimals Exercise 8.2 Solution :

(1) Express as rupees using decimals.

(a) 5 paise

(b) 75 paise

(c) 20 paise

(d) 50 rupees 90 paise

(e) 725 paise

Solution :

(a) 5 paise

As we know that,

1 rupees = 100 paise

= 5 paise / 100

= 0.05 rupees.

(b) 75 paise

1 rupees = 100 paise

=  75/100

= 0.75 rupees.

(c) 20 paise

1 rupees = 100 paise

= 20/100

= 0.20 rupees.

(d) 50 rupees 90 paise

1 rupees = 100 paise

= 50 rupees + 90/100

= 50.90 rupees

(e) 725 paise

1 rupees = 100 paise

= 725/100

= 7.25 rupees.

(2) Express as metres using decimals.

(a) 15 cm

(b) 6 cm

(c) 2 m 45 cm

(d) 9 m 7 cm

(e) 419 cm

(a) 15 cm

As we know that,

1 metre = 100 cm

= 15 cm/ 100

= 0.15 m

(b) 6 cm

=  6/100

= 0.06 m

(c) 2 m 45 cm

=  2 m + 45 /100

= 2.45 m

(d) 9 m 7 cm

= 9 m + 7/100

= 9.07 m

(e) 419 cm

= 419 / 100

= 4.19 m

Solution :

(a) 5 mm

As we know that,

1 cm = 10 mm

= 5/10

= 0.5 cm

(b) 60 mm

= 60/10

= 6 cm

(c) 164 mm

= 164 /10

= 16.4 cm

(d) 9 cm 8 mm

= 9 + 8/10

= 9.8 cm

(e) 93 mm

= 93 /10

= 9.3 cm

(4) Express as km using decimals.

(a) 8 m

(b) 88 m

(c) 8888 m

(d) 70 km 5 m

Solution :

(a) 8 m

We know,

= 1 km = 1000 m

= 8 /1000

= 0.008 km

(b) 88 m

= 88/1000

= 0.088 km

(c) 8888 m

= 8888/1000

= 8.888 km

(d) 70 km 5 m

= 70 + 5/1000

= 70.005 km

(c) 3750 g

(d) 5 kg 8 g

(e) 26 kg 50 g

Solution :

(a) 2 g

= 1 kg = 1000 gm

= 2/1000

= 0.002 kg

(b) 100 g

= 100/1000

= 0.100 kg

(c) 3750 g

= 3750/1000

= 3.750 kg

(d) 5 kg 8 g

= 5 kg + 8/1000

= 5.008 kg.

(e) 26 kg 50 g

= 26 + 50 /1000

= 26.050 kg.
