i. 2 – 3/5

ii. 4 + 7/8

iii. 3/5 + 2/7

iv. 9/11 – 4/15

v. 7/10 + 2/5 + 3/2

vi. $2 \frac {2}{3}+ 3 \frac{1}{2}$

vii. $8 \frac {1}{2} – 3 \frac{5}{8}$

We have to convert them to Like Fraction to perform these addition and substraction

i. 2 – 3/5

= (2 × 5)/5 – 3/5

= 10/5 – 3/5

= (10 – 3) ÷ 5 = 7/5

ii. 4 + 7/8

= (4 × 8)/8 + 7/8

= 32/ 8 + 7/8

= (32 + 7)/8 = 39/8

iii. 3/5 + 2/7

= (3 × 7) ÷ (5 × 7) + (2 × 5) ÷ (7 × 5)

= 21/35 + 10/35

= (21 + 10) ÷ 35 = 31/35

iv. 9/11 – 4/15

= (9 × 15) ÷ (11 × 15) – (4 × 11) ÷ (15 × 11)

= 135/165 – 44/165

= (135 – 44) ÷ 165 = 91/ 165

v. 7/10 + 2/5 + 3/2

= 7/10 + (2 × 2) ÷ (5 × 2) + (3 × 5) ÷ (2 × 5)

= 7/ 10 + 4/ 10 + 15/10

= (7 + 4 + 15) ÷10

= 26/ 10 = 13/5 = 2 3/5

vi. $2 \frac {2}{3}+ 3 \frac{1}{2}$

= 8/3 + 7/2

= (8 × 2) ÷ (3 × 2) + (7 × 3) ÷ (2 × 3)

= 16/6 + 21/ 6

= (16 + 21) ÷ 6 = 37/6 = $6 \frac{1}{6}$

vii. $8 \frac {1}{2} – 3 \frac{5}{8}$

= 17/2 – 29/8

= (17 × 4) ÷ (2 × 4) – 29/ 8

= 68/8 – 29/8

= (68 – 29) ÷ 8 = 39/8 = $4 \frac{7}{8}$

Arrange the following in descending order:

i. 2/9, 2/3, 8/21

ii. 1/5, 3/7, 6/10

i. 2/9, 2/3, 8/21

Changing the fractions into like fractions, we get

(2 × 4) ÷ (9 × 4), (2 × 4) ÷ (3 × 4), 8/ 21

8/ 36, 8/12, 8/21

8/12 > 8/21 > 8/36

Therefore, 2/3 > 8/21 > 2/9

ii. 1/5, 3/7, 6/10

Changing the fractions into like fractions we get

(1 × 7 × 10) ÷ (5 × 7 × 10), (3 × 5 × 10) ÷ (7 × 5 × 10), (7 × 7 × 10) ÷ (10 × 7 × 5)

70/350, 150/350, 245/350

245/350 > 150/350 > 70/350

Therefore, 7/10 > 3/7 > 1/5

In a “magic square”, the sum of the numbers in each row, in each column and along the diagonals is the same. Is this a magic square?

Sum, along first row = 4/11 + 9/11 + 2/11

= (4 + 9 + 2) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along second row = 3/11 + 5/11 + 7/11

= (3 + 5 + 7) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along third row = 8/11 + 1/11 + 6/11

= (8 + 1 + 6) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along first column = 4/11 + 3/11 + 8/11

= (4 + 3 + 8) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along second column = 9/11 + 5/11 + 1/11

= (9 + 5 + 1) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along third column = 2/11 + 7/11 + 6/11

= (2 + 7 + 6) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along first diagonal = 6/11 + 5/11 + 4/11

= (6 + 5 + 4) ÷ 11 = 15/11

Sum, along second diagonal = 8/11 + 5/11 + 2/11

= (8 + 5 + 2) ÷ 11 = 15/11

In this square, the sum of each row, column and diagonal are same. So, this is a magic square

A rectangular sheet paper is $12 \frac {1}{2}$ long and $10\frac {2}{3}$ cm wide. Find its perimeter.

Length of the rectangular sheet of paper = $12 \frac {1}{2}$ cm

Breadth of the rectangular sheet of paper = $10\frac {2}{3}$ cm

Perimeter of the rectangular sheet of paper = 2 × (length + breadth)

$=2 X[ 12 \frac {1}{2} + 10\frac {2}{3}]$

= 2 × (25/2 + 32/3)

Converting into equivalent Fractions

= 2 × (75/6 + 64/6)

= 2 × [ (75 + 64) ÷ 6]

= 2 × (139/6)

= (2 × 139) ÷ 6 = 139/3 = $46 \frac {1}{3}$ cm

Find the perimeter of

i) ? ABE

ii) the rectangle BCDE in this figure. Whose perimeter is greater?

i. The perimeter of ? ABE = AB + BE + EA

$= \frac {5}{2} + 2 \frac{3}{4} + 3 \frac{3}{4}$

= 5/2 + 11/4 + 18/5

Converting into equivalent fractions

= 100/40 + 144/40 + 110/40

= (100 + 144 + 110) ÷ 40

= 354/40 = 177/20 cm

ii. The length of rectangle = $2 \frac{3}{4}$ cm

The breadth of rectangle = 7/6 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 × (length + breadth)

$=2 X (2 \frac {3}{4} + \frac {7}{6})$

= 2 × (11/4 + 7/6)

= 2 × (66/24 + 28/24)

= 2 × [ (66 + 28) ÷ 24]

= 2 × 94/24 = 47/6 cm

Therefore, the perimeter of the rectangle BCDE is 47/6 cm

Perimeter of the triangle ? ABE = 177/20 cm

Perimeter of the rectangle BCDE = 47/6 cm

Changing the fractions into like fractions, we get

177/20, 47/6

(177 × 6) ÷ (20 × 6), (47 × 20) ÷ (6 × 20)

1062/120, 940/120

1062/ 120 > 940/120

Therefore, 177/20 or 8 17/20 is greater

So, the perimeter of ? ABE is greater than the perimeter of rectangle BCDE.

Salil wants to put a picture in a frame. The picture is $7 \frac {3}{5}$ cm wide. To fit in the frame the picture cannot be more than $7\frac {3}{10}$ cm wide. How much should the picture be trimmed?

Width of picture =$7 \frac {3}{5}$ cm

Required width of picture = $7\frac {3}{10}$ cm

The picture should be trimmed by

$=7 \frac {3}{5} - 7 \frac{3}{10}$

= 38/5 – 73/10

= 76/10 – 73/10 = (76 – 73) ÷ 10 = 3/10 cm

Ritu ate 3/5 part of an apple and the remaining apple was eaten by her brother Somu. How much part of the apple did Somu eat? Who had the larger share? By how much?

The part of apple eaten by Ritu = 3/5

The part of apple eaten by Somu = 1 – part of apple eaten by Ritu

= 1 – 3/5

= 2/5

Therefore, Somu ate 2/5 part of the apple.

Since, 3/5 > 2/5 , Ritu had the larger share.

Difference between the two shares 3/2 – 2/5 = (3 – 2) ÷ 5 = 1/5

Michael finished coloring a picture in 7/12 hour. Vaibhav finished coloring the same picture in 3/4 hour. Who worked longer? By what fraction was it longer?

Time taken by Michael = 7/12 hour

Time taken by Vaibhav = 3/4 hour

Changing the fractions into like fractions, we get

7/12, 3/4

7/12, (3 × 3) ÷ (4 × 3)

7/12, 9/12

Since, 9/12 > 7/12, Vaibhav worked longer.

Difference = 9/12 – 7/12 = (9 – 7) ÷ 12 = 2/12 = 1/6 hours longer

Express as rupees using decimals:

i. 7 paise

ii. 7 rupees 7 paise

iii. 77. Rupees 77 paise

iv. 50 paise,

v. 235 paise

We need to remember that

1Rs =100 paise

i. 7 paise

7 paise = Rs. 7/100 = Rs. 0.07

ii. 7 rupees 7 paise

7 rupees + 7 paise

Rs. 7 + Rs. 7/100 = Rs. 7 + Rs. 0.07 = Rs. 7.07

iii. 77. Rupees 77 paise

= 77 rupees + 77 paise

= Rs. 77 + Rs. 77/100 = Rs. 7 + Rs. 0.77 = Rs. 77.77

iv. 50 paise = Rs.50/100 = Rs. 0.50

Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayyub went from place A to place D and there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and how much?

Distance travelled by Dinesh = A to B + B to C = 7.5 km + 12.7 km = 20.2 km

Distance travelled by Ayyub = A to D + D to C = 9.3 km + 11.8 km = 21.1 km

Difference between their travelled distances = 21.1 km – 20.2 km = 0.9 km

Therefore, Ayyub travelled 0.9 km distance more than Dinesh.

Shyama bought 5 kg 300 g apples and 3 kg 350 g mangoes. Sarala bought 5 kg 800 g oranges and 4 kg 150 g bananas. Who bought more fruits?

Total fruits bought by Shyama = Apple + mangoes

5 kg 300 grams + 3 kg 250 g = 5 kg + 300 g + 3 kg + 250 g

= 8 kg + 550 g = 8 kg + 550/1000 kg = 8 kg + 0.550 kg = 8.550 kg

Total fruits bought by Sarala = oranges + bananas

4 kg 800 grams + 4 kg 150 g = 4 kg + 800 g + 8 kg + 950 g

= 8 kg + 950 g = 8 kg + 950/1000 kg = 8 kg + 0.950 kg = 8.950 kg

Therefore, Sarala bought more fruits.
