Question 3.
Convert into indicated units:
(i) 10 l and 5 ml into ml
(ii) 4 km and 300 m into m
(iii) 300 mg into g
Solution:
(i) 10 l and 5 ml
= 10 × 1000 ml + 5 ml
= 10,000 ml + 5 ml [∴ 1l = 1000 ml]
= 10,005 ml.
∴ 10 l and 5 ml = 10,005 ml.
(ii) 4 km and 300 m into m.
4 km and 300 m
= 4 × 1000 m + 300 m
= 4000 m + 300 m [∴ 1 km = 1000 m]
= 4300 m
∴ 4 km and 300 m = 4300 m
(iii) 300 mg into g.

Question 4.
Convert into higher units:
(i) 13000 mm (km, m, cm)
(ii) 8257 ml (kl, l)
Solution:
(i) 13000 mm (km, m, cm)
(ii) 8257 ml (kl, l)

Question 5.
Convert into lower units:
(i) 15 km (m, cm, mm)
(ii) 12 kg (g, mg)
Solution:
(i) 15 km (m, cm, mm)
15 km = 15 × 1000 m = 15,000 m
15 km = 15 × 1,00,000 cm = 15,00,000 cm
15 km = 15 × 10,00,000 mm = 1,50,00,000 mm.
15 km = 15,000 m = 15,00,000 cm = 1,50,00,000 mm.

(ii) 12 kg (g, mg)
12 kg = 12 × 1000 g= 12,000 g
12 kg = 12 × 10,00,000 mg = 1,20,00,000 mg.
12 kg = 12,000 g = 1,20,00,000 mg.

Question 6.
Compare and put > or < or = in the following:
(i) 800 g + 150 g ……… 1 kg
(ii) 600 ml + 400 ml …….. 1 l
(iii) 6 m 25 cm …….. 600 cm + 25 cm
(iv) 88 cm …….. 8 m 8 cm
(v) 55 g …….. 550 mg
Solution:
(i) <
(ii) =
(iii) =
(iv) <
(v) >

Question 7.
Geetha brought 2 l and 250 ml of water in a bottle. Her friend drank 300 ml from it. How much of water is remaining in the bottle?
Solution:
Total Capacity of water = 2 l 250 ml
= (2 x 1000 + 250) l
= 2000 + 250 ml
= 2250 ml
Water Consumed = 300 ml
Water remaining in the bottle = (2250 – 300) ml
= 1950 ml
= 1 litre 950 ml

Question 8.
Thenmozhi’s height is 1.25 m now. She grows for 5 cm every year. What would be her height after 6 years?
Solution:
Thenmozhi’s normal
height = 1.25 m
Every year’s growth = 5 cm
Total height in I year = 1,25 m and 5 cm
∴ Height after 6 years = 1.25 m + (5 cm × 6)
= 1.25 m + 30 cm
= 125 cm + 30 cm
= 155 cm

Question 9.
Priya bought 22 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ kg of onion/ Krishna bought 18 $$\frac{3}{4}$$ kg of onion and sethu bought 9 kg 250 g of onion, what is the total weight of onion did they buy?
Solution:
Total weight of onion bought
= 22 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ + 18 $$\frac{3}{4}$$ + 9 $$\frac{1}{4}$$ kg
= 22 kg 500 g + 18 kg 750 g + 9 kg 250 g
= 49 kg 1500 g
= 50 kg 500 g
