### ANSWERS:

1. Equivalent fractions of 2/3 are 2/3, 4/6, 6/9, 8/12, 10/15.

2. First convert to like fractions.

2/7 = 6/21 ( Multiply both numerator and denominator by 3)

4/3 = 28/21 (Multiply both numerator and denominator by 7)

Descending order is 28/21, 6/21, 5/21.

So 4/3, 2/7, 5/2 is the descending order.

3. Given length= 5/2 m and Breadth = 3/5 m

Perimeter = 2 x (length + breadth)

= 2 x (5/2 + 3/5)

= 2 x (25 +6)/10

= 2 x 31/10

= 31/5 m

4. ½ of 36 = ½ x 36 = 18

5. ¼ of 5/8 = ¼ x 5/8 = 5/32.

6. Weight of apples = 2 ¼ kg

Weight of oranges = 4 ¾ kg

Total weight of fruits = 2 ¼ + 4 ¾

Convert to improper fractions,

2 ¼ = 9/4

4 ¾ = 19/4

2 ¼ + 4 ¾ = 9/4 + 19/4 = 28/4 = 7 kg

7. a) 2/5 x 4/7 = 8/35

b) ½ x ¾ = 3/8.

8. Total number of pieces of cake = 5

Piece of cake each one get = 5/3

Number of persons = 5 divided by 5/3

= 5 x 3/5 = 15/5 =3

9. 2/3 x 4/5 = 8/15

3/5 x 4/3 = 12/15.

Since 12 is greater than 8, 12/15 is greater than 8/15.

10. a) ¼ x 3/5 = 3/20.

b) 1/7 x 3/10 = 3/70.
