Here one centimetre has 10 equal parts. So each part is one-tenth of a centimetre. One-tenth of a centimetre is called one millimetre (mm).

So, 0.9 cm is same as 9 millimeters.

Yes, we can say 0.9 cm as nine – tenths of a cm.

7. So 30.5 cm is the same as cm and millimeter.

Solution:-

So 30.5 cm is the same as 30 cm and 5 millimeter.

8. About how many of the big frogs will fit on the 1m scale?

Solution:-

As we know that, 1m = 100 cm.

Then, Length of the big frog is 30.5 cm.

So, 3 big frogs will fit on the 1 cm scale.

9. If they sit in a straight line about how many of the small frogs will cover 1m?

Solution:-

As we know that, 1m = 100 cm.

Then, Length of the small frog is 0.9 cm.

= 100/0.9

= 111

If small frog sit in a straight line, 111 frogs will cover 1m.

Answer-

Money with Arun = (5 × 1) + (1 × 2) + (4 × 0.5)

We get

= 5 + 2 + 2

= Rs. 9

We know that

Cost of one soap = Rs. 8.75

So Arun will get back = 9 – 8.75

It can be written as

= (900 – 875) paise

= 25 paise

= Re. 0.25

5. (a) An egg costs two and a half rupees. How much will one and a half dozen cost?

(b) How many pens can Kannan buy? How much money is left?

So the cost of one and a half dozen eggs = 12 + 6 = 18 eggs

Here the cost of 18 eggs = 18 × 2.50

We can write it as

= 18 × 2 + 18 × 0.50

= 36 + 9

= Rs 45

So the money left = 60 – 45 = Rs 15

(b) Kannan can buy 2 pens. The money left with him is Rs. 15

Answer-

Money given to Mithun by his uncle = 10 USA Dollar

We know that 1 USA Dollar = 39.70

So the money received by Mithun = 10 × 39.70

It can be written as

= 10 × 39 + 10 × 0.70

= 390 + 7

= Rs 397

Money used by Mithun for a school trip = Rs 350

So the money left with him = 397 – 350 = Rs 47

(C) Majeed’s father is working in U.A.E. He gets 1000 Dirham as salary. Arun’s father who is working in Sri Lanka gets 2000 Sri Lankan Rupees. Who gets more Indian rupees as salary?

Answer-

Salary of Majeed’s father = 1000 Saudi Riyal

We can write it as

= 1000 × 10.52

By further calculation

= 1000 × 10 + 1000 × 0.52

So we get

= 1000 + 520

= Rs 10520

Salary of Arun’s father = 2000 Sri Lankan Rupees

We can write it as

= 2000 × 0.37

By further calculation

= 2000 × 37 paise

= 74000 paise

= Rs 740

Therefore, Majeed’s father gets more Indian rupees.

(D) Leena’s aunty brought a present for her from China. It cost 30 Yuan. Find what it costs in Indian rupees.

Answer-

Cost of the gift given to Leena = 30 Yuan

We know that 1 Yuan = Rs 5.50

It can be written as

= 30 × 5.50

So we get

= 30 × 5 + 30 × 0.50

= 150 + 15

= Rs 165

(E) Astha wants some Hong Kong Dollars and Won.

1. How many Won can she change for Rs 4? For Rs 400?

2. How many Hong Kong Dollars can she change for Rs 508?

Answer-

1. We know that 1 won = Re 0.04

By multiplying both sides by 100

100 won = 4

Therefore, Astha gets 100 won for Rs 4

So for Rs 400 she gets

100 × 100 = 10000 Won

2. We know that 1 HK Dollar = Rs 5.10

It can be written as

= 5 rupees 10 paise

= 5 × 100 + 10 paise

= 500 + 10

= 510 paise

So the total money with Astha = Rs 508

We can write it as

= 508 × 100

= 50800 paise

Here

50800 paise = 50490 + 310 paise

By further calculation

= 510 × 99 + 310 paise

= 510 HKD + 310 paise

We get

310 paise = 300 paise + 10 paise

= 3 rupees 10 paise

= Rs 3. 10

Therefore, Astha can change 99 HK Dollars for Rs 508 and Rs 3.10 left with her.
