Answer the following:

1. Shantaram is a special cook who comes only on party days. Last year he was called for only 28 days. For each day he has to be paid Rs. 165.Find out how much money he will get in all.

If he is called for all days of the year how much salary will he get?

Ans. For each day Shantaram will get Rs 165

So for 28 days his earnings = 165 x 28 = 4620 rupees

In a year there are 365 days.

So if he is called for all days of the year, his earnings = 165 x 365 = 60225 rupees

## Practice problems and solutions on multiplication and division

1. A tank is full of 300 L of water. How much water will be filled in 25 tanks? If 15 buckets can be filled with one tank of water, how many buckets in all can be filled with the water in 25 tanks?

Ans. Capacity of the water tank = 300litre

The amount of water will be filled in 25 tanks = 300 x 25 = 7500 litre

Number of buckets that can be filled with 1 tank = 15

Number of buckets that can be filled with 25 tanks = 15 x 25 = 375

Ans. Number of laddoos in 1 kg = 28

Number of laddoos in 12 kg = 28 x 12 = 336

Number of laddoos that can be packed in 1 box = 16

Number of boxes needed to pack all these = 336 ÷16 = 21

3. There are 26 rooms in a school. Each room has 4 plants. If each plant needs 2 cups of water, how much water do we need for all the plants?
