Miscellaneous Practice problems

Question 1.

Malini bought three ribbon of lengths 13.92 m, 11.5 m and 10.64 m. Find the total length of the ribbons?

Solution:

Length of ribbon 1 = 13.92 m

Length of ribbon 2 = 11.50 m

Length of ribbon 3 = 10.64 m

Total Length of the ribbons = 13.92 m + 11.5 m + 10.64 m = 36.06 m

Totla length of the ribbons = 36.06 m

Question 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:

Total weight of ghee bought = 10 kg 35 g

Weight of ghee used = 8 kg 59 g

Weight of ghee left = 10.35 kg – 8.59 kg = 1.76 kg

∴ Weight of ghee left= 1 kg 76 g = 1.76 kg

Question 3.

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

Solution:

Capacity of 1 milk can= 2.53 l

∴ Capacity of 8 milk cans= 2.53 l × 8 = 20.24 l

To fill 8 cans 20.24 l of milk is required.

Question 4.

A basket of orange weighs 22.5 kg. If each family requires 2.5 kg of orange, families can share?

Solution:

Total weight of orange = 22.5 kg

Weight of orange required for 1 family = 2.5 kg

∴ Number of families sharing orange = 22.5 kg ÷ 2.5 kg

= \(\frac { 22.5 }{ 2.5 } \) = \(\frac { 22.5 }{ 2.5 } \) × \(\frac { 10 }{ 10 } \) = \(\frac { 225 }{ 25 } \) = 9

∴ 9 families can share the oranges.

Question 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:

For 10 cakes sugar required = 3.924 kg

For 1 cake sugar required = 0.3924 kg.

Question 6.

Evaluate:

(i) 26.13 × 4.6

(ii) 3.628 + 31.73 – 2.1

Solution:

(i) 26.13 × 4.6

26.13 × 4.6 = 120.198

(ii) 3.628 + 31.73 – 2.1 = 33.258

Challenge Problems

Question 1.

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:

∴ 267 metres = \(\frac { 267 }{ 1000 } \) km = 0.267 km

∴ Total distance travelled = 0.267 km

Question 2.

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:

Distance travelled by Anbu:

From place A to place B = 8.3 km

Distance from place B to place C = 15.6 km

∴ Total distance travelled by Anbu = 8.3 + 15.6

= 23.9 km

Distance travlled by Mala:

Distance travelled place A to D = 7.5 km

Distance from place D to place C = 16.9 km

Total distance travelled by mala = (7.5 + 16.9) km = 24.4 km

24.4 > 23.9

∴ Mala travelled more distance. She travelled (24.4 – 23.9) km more i.e she travelled 0.5 km more

Question 3.

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:

Total hours the taxi was used = 35 hrs

∴ Total payment for the taxi for the week

= 97.75 × 35

= 3421.25

Total payment for a week = ₹ 3421.25

Question 4.

An Aeroplane travelled 2781.20 kms in 6 hours. Find the average speed of the aeroplane in Km/hr.
