10. Cost of 5 kg rice is 160 rupees.

a) What will be the cost of 8 kg of rice?

b) What quantity of rice can be purchased with 320 rupees?

**ANSWERS:**

1. a) 3:4, 9:12

9:12 = 3:4 (3 is a common factor)

So these are in proportion.

b) 5:10 = 1:2 (5 is a common factor)

So these are not in proportion.

2. 500m: 1km

1 km = 1000 meters

a) 500 : 1000 = 1:2 (500 is a common factor)

b) 50 paise: 2 rupees

1 rupees = 100 paise

50: 200 = 1:4 (50 is a common factor)

3. Sum of the parts = 2 +3 = 5

Share of each person = 500 x 2/5 = 1000/5 = 200 rupees

500 x 3/5 = 1500/5 = 300 rupees

4. Cost of 12 pens = 108

Cost of 1 pen = 108/12 = 9 rupees

Cost of 7 ball pens = 49 rupees

Cost of 1 ball pen = 49/7 = 7 rupees.

Ratio = 9:7

5. Ratio = 16: 14 = 8:7

6. Weight of 63 books = 9 kg

Weight of 1 book = 9/63 = 1/7 kg

Weight of 70 books = 70 x 1/7 = 10 kg

7. Sum of the parts = 3 + 4 = 7

Share of each person = 350 x 3/7 = 150 rupees

350 x 4/7 = 200 rupees

8. Present age of father = 40 years

Present age of son = 8

a) Ratio = 40: 8 = 5:1(8 is a common factor)

b) After 10 years, father’s age is 50 years and son’s age is 18 years

Ratio = 50:18 = 25:9 (2 is a common factor)

9. Rainfall in 5 days = 265 mm

Rainfall in 1 day = 265 /5 = 53 mm

Rainfall in 1 week = 53 x 7 = 371 mm

10. Cost of 5 kg of rice = 160 rupees

Cost of 1 kg of rice = 160/5 = 32 rupees

a) Cost of 8 kg of rice = 32 x 8 = 256 rupees.

b) 10 kg of rice can be purchased with 320 rupees.
