ANSWERS:

1. a) 2 + 3/10 = 2.3

b) 20 + 2/10 = 20.2

2. a) 25.3

b) 304.7

3.a) We know that 1 cm = 10 mm

So 4 mm = 4/10 = 0.4 cm

b) 112 mm = 112/10 = 11.2 cm

c) 4 cm 3 mm = 4 + 3/10 = 4.3 cm

4. a) 0.07 = 7 /100

b) 2.56 = 256/100 = 128/50 = 64/25.

c) 0.432 = 432/ 1000 = 216/500 = 108/250 = 54/125

5. a) 543.17

b) 23.42

6. a) 207 + 3/100 = 207.03

b) 12.342

7. a) 0.2

b) Both are equal.

8. a) We know that 1 rupee = 100 paise

So 50 paise = 50/100 = 0.50 rupees

b) 20 rupees 25 paise = 20 + 25/100 = 20.25 rupees

9. We know that 1 kg = 1000g

a) 3g = 3/1000 = 0.003 kg

b) 2550 g = 2550/1000 = 2.550 kg

10. a) We know that 1 km = 1000m

So 4m = 4/1000 = 0.004 km

b) 4321m = 4321/1000 = 4.321 km

11. Money spent for chocolate = 20.50 rupees

Money spent for one pen = 6.50 rupees

Total money spent = 20.50 + 6.50 = Rs 27

12. Distance travelled by bus = 2 km 25 m = 2.025 km

Distance travelled by car = 3 km 450m = 3.450 km

Distance travelled by walking = 1 km 25m = 1.025 km

Total distance travelled = 2.025 + 3.450 + 1.025 = 6.500 km

13. Weight of Oranges = 3 kg 80 g = 3. 080 kg

Weight of bananas = 4 kg 60g = 4. 060 kg

Weight of apples = 5 kg 450g = 5.450 kg

Total weight of fruits = 3.080 + 4.060 + 5.450 = 12.590 kg = 12 kg 590g

14. Total money Janvi had = Rs 100

Money spent for chocolate = 55.50 rupees

Balance amount left with her = 100 – 55.50 = 44.50 rupees.

15. Total weight of fruits = 10 kg

Weight of grapes = 3 kg 750g = 3.750g

Weight of apples = 2kg 50g = 2.050 g

Total weight of grapes and apples = 3.750 + 2.050 = 5.800 kg

Weight of bananas = 10 – 5.800 = 4.200 kg = 4kg 200g
