4 + 2/10

4.2

g)

3/2

For writing in decimal notation, the denominator of the fraction should be 10. So, we make an equivalent fraction as,

3/2 = 15/10

Here the numerator is bigger than denominator, so converting into mixed fraction we get

1 + 5/10


1.5

h)

2/5

For writing in decimal notation, the denominator of the fraction should be 10. So, we make an equivalent fraction as,

2/5 = 4/10

i)

12/5

For writing in decimal notation, the denominator of the fraction should be 10. So, we make an equivalent fraction as,

12/5 = 24/10

Here the numerator is bigger than denominator, so converting into mixed fraction we get

Question 6

Express the following as cm using decimals.

(a) 2 mm

(b) 30 mm

(c) 116 mm

(d) 4 cm 2 mm

(e) 162 mm

 (f) 83 mm

Answer

We know that 10 mm =1 cm i.e.   1 mm is 1/10 of centimeter

a)  2 mm = 2/10 cm = .2 cm

b) 30mm = 30/10 cm = 3 cm

c) 116 mm= 116/10 cm = 11.6 cm

d) 4 cm 2 mm= (4 + 2/10) cm = 4.2 cm

e) 162 mm = 162/10 cm = 16.2 cm

f) 83 mm = 83/10 cm = 8.3 cm

Question 7

Between which two whole numbers on the number line are the given numbers lie? Which of these whole numbers is nearer the number?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 7: Decimals

(a) 0.8

 (b) 5.1

(c) 2.6

(d) 6.4

(e) 9.1

(f) 4.9

Answer

a)      0.8 = 0 + 8/10

So, it lies between 0 and 1 and is nearer to 1.

b)      5.1 = 5 + 1/10

So, it lies between 5 and 6 and is nearer to 5.

c)      2.6 = 2 + 6/10

So, it lies between 2 and 3 and is nearer to 3.

d)     6.4 = 6 + 4/10

So, it lies between 6 and 7 and is nearer to 6.

e)      9.1 = 9 + 1/10

So, it lies between 9 and 10 and is nearer to 9.

f)       4.9 = 4 + 9/10

So, it lies between 4 and 5 and is nearer to 5.

Question 8

Show the following numbers on the number line.

(a) 0.2

(b) 1.9

(c) 1.1

(d) 2.5

Answer

    a)      0.2 lies between 0 and 1. There are 2 tenths in it. Divide the unit length into 10 equal parts and 0.2 represents the 2nd part.

    b)      1.9 lies between 1 and 2. There are 9 tenths in it. 1.9 represents the ninth part after 1.

   c)      1.1 lies between 1 and 2. There are 1 tenth in it. 1.1 represents the first part after 1.

  d)     2.5 lies between 2 and 3. There are 5 tenths in it. 2.5 represents the fifth part after 2.

Question 9

Write the decimal number represented by the points A, B, C, D on the given number line?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 7: Decimals

Answer

Each interval is divided in ten equal parts and we can just count the part to get the value

a)

A

A represents the 8th equal part between 0 and 1. So, A is 0.8.


b)

B

B represents the 3rd equal part between 1 and 2. So, B is 1.3

c)

C

 C represents the 2nd equal part between 2 and 3 and hence is the number 2.2

d)

D

D is 2.9, the 9th equal part between 2 and 3.


Question 10

(a) The length of Ramesh’s notebook is 9 cm 5 mm. What will be its length in cm?

(b) The length of a young gram plant is 65 mm. Express its length in cm.

Answer

We know that 10 mm =1 cm i.e.   1 mm is 1/10 of centimeter
