10. The speed of a long tail boat is 12 km/hour. If a long tail boat has to travel 60 km how long will it take?

**ANSWERS:**

1. Distance travelled in 3 hours = 120 km

Distance travelled in 1 hour = 120/3 = 40 km

2. Amount repaid in every month = 825 rupees

Amount repaid at the end of a year = 825 x 12 = 9900 rupees.

3. Quantity of fresh fish needed = 6 x 3 = 18 kg

4. Amount paid back in one year = 30000 rupees

Amount paid back in every month = 30000 /12 = 2500 rupees

5. Speed of a motorboat = 10 km/hour

Distance travelled in 7 hours = 7 x 10 = 70 km

Distance travelled in half an hour = 5 km

Distance travelled in seven and half hours = 75 km

6. Cost of mackerels = 120 rupees/kg

Cost of prawns = 250 rupees/kg

Cost of 12 kg mackerels = 120 x 12 = 1440 rupees

Cost of 15 kg prawns = 15 x 250 = 3750 rupees

Difference = 3750 – 1440 = 2310 rupees

7. Cost of 8 kg fish = 1200 rupees

Cost of 1 kg fish = 1200/8 = 150 rupees

8. Amount paid back in every month = 345 rupees

Amount paid back in one year = 345 x 12 = 4140 rupees

9. Amount repaid in one year = 42000 rupees

Amount repaid in every month = 42000/12 = 3500 rupees

10. Speed of a long tail boat = 12 km/ hour

Time taken to cover 60 km = 60/12 = 5 hours.
