#### Question -1.

From a rope of 1012 m long, 4 58 m is cut off. Find the length of the remaining rope.

Length of rope =  1012  m

Length of cut off. rope = 4 58

Length of the remaining rope = Length of rope – Length of cut off. rope

= 1012 m – 4 58

= 212

= ….212….- 378…..

=

#### Question -2.

A piece of cloth is 5 metre long. After washing, it shrinks by 125 of its length. What is the length of the cloth after washing?

Length of piece of cloth is = 5 metre

After washing, it shrinks =  125 of its length

length of the cloth after washing = 5 metre  – 125 of its 5

#### Question -3.

I bought wheat worth Rs. 1212, rice worth Rs. 2534 and vegetables worth Rs. 1014. If I gave a hundred-rupee note to the shopkeeper ; how much did he return to me

wheat worth = Rs. 1212,

rice worth Rs. 2534

vegetables worth Rs. 1014

Total Amount = (wheat+rice+vegetables)

Total Amount = (..1212,..+….Rs. 2534…+…1014….)

= 1944,

#### Question -4.

Out of 500 oranges in a box, 325, are rotten and 15, are kept for some guests. How many oranges are left in the box?

Number of oranges = 500

rotten oranges = 325, of 500 = 60

= 60

kept for some guests = .15, of..500..= 100…

oranges are left in the box = 500-60-100 = 340

#### Question -5.

An ornament piece is made of gold and copper. Its total weight is 96g. If 112 of the ornament is copper, find the weight of gold in it.

total weight is = 96 g

copper =  112 of 96 g = 8 g

weight of gold = 96 g – 8 g = 88 g

#### Question -6.

A girl did half of some work on Monday and one-third of it on Tuesday. How much will she have to do on Wednesday in order to complete the work?

Let total Work be = 1

work on Monday = 12

work on Wednesday = 1- (.work on Monday +….work on Tuesday..)

#### Question- 7.

A man spends 38 of his money and 8 still has Rs. 720 left with him. How much money did he have at first?

Let Money be =1

spends =  38 of his money

money Left = 1 – 38

= 58

According to condition given = Rs. 720 left

…..58…of 1 .= ..720.

= 720 x 85

= 1152

#### Question -8.

In a school, 45 of the students are boys, and the number of girls is 100. Find the number of boys.

Number of boy = Total strength – number of girl

Number of boy = 500 – 100 = 400

#### Question- 9.

After finishing 34 of my journey, I find that 12 km of my journey is covered. How much distance is still left to be covered?

#### Question -11.

In a particular month, a man earns Rs. 7,200. Out of this income, he spends  310  on food,  14  on house rent,  110  on insurance and  225  on holidays. How much did he save in that month ?

particular month, a man earns = Rs. 7,200

he spends on food, =   310  of 7,200 = 2160

on house rent = 14 of 7,200 = 1800

Money spend on insurance= 110  of 7200 = 720

on holidays =  225 of 7200 = 576

Total amount spent = (2160+1800 +  720 + 576)

= 5256 Rs

Amount saved = 7200- 5256

= Rs 1944

= Rs. 2 x 24,000 = Rs. 48,000
Remaining amount = Rs. 120000 – Rs. 48000 = Rs. 72000
This amount is distributed among three children equally.
Each’s share = Rs. 72,000 x 1/3 = Rs. 24,000
