Hence, the rounded value of 8.71 to the nearest whole number is 9.

(ii) 26.01

Underline the digit to be rounded – 26.01

Since the digit next to the underlined digit is 0 which is less than 5, the underlined digit 6
remains the same. We get 26.00

Hence, the rounded value of 26.01 to the nearest whole number is 26.

(iii) 69.48

Given number 69.48

Underline the digit to be rounded – 69.48

Since the digit next to the underlined digit is 4 which is less than 5, the underlined digit 9 remains the same. We get 69.00

(iv) 103.72

Given, number 103.72

Underline the digit to be rounded – 103.72

We observe that the digit after the underlined digit place value is 7 which is more than 5.
Therefore, we should add 1 to the underlined digit. Hence, we get 104

Hence, the rounded value of 103.72 to the nearest whole number is 104

(v) 49.84

Given, number 49.84

Underline the digit to be rounded – 49.84

We observe that the digit after the underlined digit place value is 8 which is more than 5.
Therefore, we should add 1 to the underlined digit. Hence, we get 50

Hence, the rounded value of 49.84 to the nearest whole number is 50.

(vi) 101.35

Given number 101.35

Underline the digit to be rounded – 101.35

Since the digit next to the underlined digit is 3 which is less than 5, the underlined digit 1 remains the same. We get 101

Hence, the rounded value of 101.35 to the nearest whole number is 101

(vii) 39.814

Given, number 39.814

Underline the digit to be rounded – 39.814

We observe that the digit after the underlined digit place value is 8 which is more than 5.
Therefore, we should add 1 to the underlined digit. Hence, we get 40

Hence, the rounded value of 39.814 to the nearest whole number is 40

(viii) 1.23

Given number 1.23

Underline the digit to be rounded – 1.23

Since the digit next to the underlined digit is 2 which is less than 5, the underlined digit 1 remains the same. We get 1

(6) Sulaiman bought 3.350 kg of Potato, 2.250 kg of Tomato and some Onions. If the weight of the total items are 10.250 kg, then find the weight of Onions?

Solution :

Given, Sulaiman bought potato = 3.350 kg

Sulaiman bought tomato = 2.250 kg

Let Sulaiman bought onion = x kg

Since, total weight of items = 10.250 kg

Thus, 3.350 + 2.250 + x = 10.250

5.600 + x = 10.250

x = 10.250 – 5.600

x = 4.650 kg

Hence, the weight of onion is 4.650 kg.

Hence, each child get 1.91 kg sweet.

(7) A vehicle covers a distance of 76.8 km for 1.2 litre of petrol. How much distance will it cover for one litre of petrol?

Solution :

Given, A vehicle covers a distance of 76.8 km for 1.2 litre of petrol.

Thus, for 1.2 litre = 76.8 km

So, for 1 litre = x km

Therefore, x = 76.8 ÷ 1.2

= 768/10 ÷ 12/10

= 768/10 × 10/12

= 64 km

Therefore, it will cover 64 km in one litre petrol.

(8) Cost of levelling a land at the rate of 15.50 sq.ft is 10075. find the area of the land.

Solution :

Given, cost of levelling a land at the rate of ₹ 15.50 sq. ft is ₹ 10,075.

Thus, cost of 1 sq.ft = ₹15.50

Let cost of x sq.ft = ₹ 10,075

Therefore, x = 10,075 ÷ 15.50

= 10,075 ÷ 155/10

= 10,075 × 10/155

= 65 × 10

= 650

Therefore, the area of land will be 650 sq. ft

(9) The cost of 28 books are ₹ 1506.4. Find the cost of one book.

Solution :

Given, the cost of 28 books are ₹ 1506.4

Thus, cost of 28 books = ₹1506.4

So, cost of 1 book = ₹X

Therefore, X = 1506.4 ÷ 28

= 15064/10 × 1/28

= 538/10

= 53.8

Therefore, the cost of 1 book will be ₹53.8

(10) The product of two numbers is 40.376. One number is 14.42. Find the other number.

Solution :

Let x be other number

According to question,

14.42 × x = 40.376

x = 40.376 ÷ 14.42

x = 40376/1000 ÷ 1442/100

x = 40376/1000 × 100/1442

x = 28/10

x = 2.8

Therefore, the other number is 2.8

Solution :

Given, Malini bought three ribbons of length 13.92 m, 11.5 m and 10.64 m.

Thus, total length

= 13.92 + 11.5 + 10.64

= 36.06 m

Therefore, the total length of the ribbons will be 36.06 m.

(2) Chitra has bought 10 kg 35 g of ghee for preparing sweets. She used 8 kg 59 g of ghee. How much ghee will be left?

Solution :

Given, Chitra has bought 10 kg 35 g of ghee for preparing sweets.

Total ghee = 10 kg 35 g

Used ghee = 8 kg 59 g

We know, 1 kg = 1000 g

Thus, 10 kg + 35 g – (8 kg + 59 g)

= 10000 g + 35 g – (8000 g+59 g)

= 10035 g – 8059 g

= 1976 g

= 1000 g +976 g

= 1 kg 976 g

Therefore, 1 kg 976 g ghee will left.

(3) If the capacity of a milk can is 2.53 l, then how much milk is required to fill 8 such cans?

Solution :

Given, the capacity of a milk can is 2.53 l,

Thus, for 1 can = 2.53 l

So, for 8 can = x l

Therefore,

x = 8 * 2.53

= 20.24 l

Therefore, we required 20.24 l milk to fill 8 such cans.

(4) A basket of orange weighs 22.5 kg. If each family requires 2.5 kg of orange, how many families can share?

Solution :

Given, a basket of orange weighs 22.5 kg.

Total orange = 22.5 kg

Supposed, each family requires 2.5 kg of orange

Therefore, 22.5 ÷ 2.5

= 225 ÷ 25

= 9

Therefore, there are 9 family share orange.

(5) A baker uses 3.924 kg of sugar to bake 10 cakes of equal size. How much sugar is used in each cake?

Solution :

Given, a baker uses 3.924 kg of sugar to bake 10 cakes of equal size.

Thus, sugar can use for 10 cake = 3.924 kg

So sugar can use for 1 cake = x kg

Therefore,

x = 3.924 ÷ 10

= 0.3924 kg

Therefore, 0.3924 kg sugar will used for 1 cake.

(6) Evaluate :

(7) Murugan bought some bags of vegetables. Each bag weighs 20.55 kg. If the total weight of all the bags is 308.25 kg, how many bags did he buy?

Solution :

Given, Murugan bought some bags of vegetables. Each bag weighs 20.55 kg.

Since, total weight of all bags is 308.25 kg

Thus, 308.25 ÷ 20.55

= 30825/100 ÷ 2055/100

= 30825/100 × 100/2055

= 15

Therefore, Murugan bought 15 bags.

(8) A man walks around a circular park of distance 23.761 m. How much distance will he cover in 100 rounds?

Solution :

Given, a man walks around a circular park of distance 23.761 m.

Since, for 1 round = 23.761 m

Now, for 100 round = x m

Therefore,

x = 23.761 × 100

= x = 2376.1 m

Therefore, a man in a 100 rounds 2376.1 m distance covered.

(9) How much 0.0543 is greater than 0.002?

Solution :

= 0.0543 – 0.002

x = 15 × 4.6

= x = 69

Hence, pages can be printed in 4.6 m is 69.

Challenge Problem Solutions :

(11) The distance travelled by Prabhu from home to Yoga centre is 102 m and from Yoga centre to school is 165 m. What is the total distance travelled by him in kilometres (in decimal form)?

Solution :

Distance of from home to Yoga centre = 102 m

Distance of Yoga centre to school = 165 m

Thus, total distance

= 102 + 165

= 267 m

We know, 1 m = 1/1000 km

Now, 267 m = 267/1000 km

= 0.267 km

Hence, Prabhu traveled 0.267 km total distance.

(12) Anbu and Mala travelled from A to C in two different routes. Anbu travelled from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 8.3 km from B and B is 15.6 km from C. Mala travelled from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 7.5 km from A and C is 16.9 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much distance?

Solution :

Since, Anbu travelled from place A to place B and from there to place C.

Distance from A to B = 8.3 km

Distance from B to C = 15.6 km

Thus, Anbu total distance

= AB + BC

= 8.3 + 15.6

= 23.9 km

Also, Mala travelled from place A to place D and from there to place C.

Distance from A to D = 7.5 km

Distance from D to C = 16.9 km

Thus, Mala total distance

= AD + DC

= 7.5 + 16.9

= 24.4 km

Therefore,

= 24.4 – 23.9

= 0.5 km

Therefore, Mala travelled more distance by 0.5 km.

(13) Ramesh paid ₹ 97.75 per hour for a taxi and he used 35 hours in a week. How much he has to pay totally as taxi fare for a week?

Solution :

Given, Ramesh paid ₹ 97.75 per hour for a taxi

Thus, paid for 1 hour = ₹97.75

Paid for 35 hours = ₹X

Therefore,

X = 97.75 × 35

= ₹3421.25

Hence, Ramesh pay totally ₹3421.25 as taxi fare for a week.

(14) An Aeroplane travelled 2781.20 kms in 6 hours. Find the average speed of the aeroplane in km/hr.

Solution :

Given, an Aero plane travelled 2781.20 kms in 6 hours.

Thus, for 6 hours = 2781.20 km

So, for 1 hour = x km

Therefore,

x = 2781.20/6

x = 463.53 km

Thus, the average speed of the aero plane in km/hr is 463.53 km.

(15) Kumar’s car gives 12.6 km mileage per litre. If his fuel tank holds 25.8 litres then how far can he travel?

Solution :
