#### Question 1.

Which is greater ?
(i) 537 or 98
(ii) 2428 or 529
(iii) 2, 59, 467 or 10, 35, 729

Answer

(i) 537 or 98
Since 537 is three digit number and 98 is two digit number.
Hence 537 > 98 and 537 is greater
(ii) 2428 or 529
Since 2498 is four digit number and 529 is three digit number.
2498 > 529 ; 2498 is greater
(iii) 2, 59, 467 or 10, 35, 729
Since 10, 35, 729 is seven digit number and 2, 59, 467 is six digit number
10, 35, 729 > 2, 59, 467 ; 10, 35, 729 is greater

#### Question 2.

Which is smaller ?
(i) 428 or 437
(ii) 2497 or 2597
(iii) 3297 or 3596

#### Answer

(i) 428 or 437
We observe that both the numbers are of three-digits.
And at the leftmost, both the number have same digit i.e. 4. But at the second place from the left, the first, number has 2 and the second number has 3.
Since 2 < 3
437 is greater

(ii) 2497 or 2597
We observe that both the numbers are of four digits.
And at the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 2. But at the second place from the left, the first number has 4 and the second number has 5.
Since 4 < 5
2597 is greater
(iii) 3297 or 3596
We observe that both the numbers are of four digits.
And at the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 2. But at the second place from the left, the first number has 4 and the second number has 5.
Since 4 < 5
3596 is greater

#### Question 3.

Which is greater ?
(i) 45293 or 45427
(ii) 380362 or 381007
(iii) 63520 or 63250
Answer
(i) 45293 or 45427
We observe that both the numbers are of 5-digits.
And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.
But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 2 and the second number has 4.
Since 2 < 4
45427 is greater
(ii) 380362 or 381007
We observe that both the numbers are of 6-digits.
And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.
But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 0 and the second number has 1.
Since 0 < 1
381007 is greater
(iii) 63520 or 63250
We observe that both the numbers are of 5-digits.
And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.
But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 5 and the second number has 2.
Since 5 < 2
63520 is greater

#### Question 4.

By making a suitable chart, compare:
(i) 540276 and 369998

 5 4 0 2 7 6 3 6 9 9 9 8

Clearly, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 6
And at the leftmost, the first number has 5 and the second number has 3.
Since 5 > 3
540276 is greater.
(ii) 6983245 and 6893254

 6 9 8 3 2 4 5 6 8 9 3 2 5 4

Clearly, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 7
And at the leftmost, both have the same digit i.e. 6
And at the second place from the left, the first number has 9 and the second number has 8.
Since 9 > 8
6983245 is greater.

Answer
Population of a city in 2014 = 3,54, 976
Population increased in 2015 = 68, 438
Total population at the end of the year 2015 = 3, 54, 976 + 68, 438 = 423414
Question 2.
A = 7,43,000 and B = 8,00,100. Which is greater A or B ? And, by how much?
Answer
A = 7,43,000
B = 8,00,100
B is greater than A. (B > A)
Because = B – A
Since A = 7, 43, 000 and B = 800,100 and both the numbers have 6 digits.
And at the leftmost, the first number has 7 and the second number has 8.
Since 8 > 7
800, 600 > 7,43,000 (B > A)
B is greater than A by = 800, 100 – 7, 43, 000 = 57, 100

#### Question 3.

A small and thin notebook has 56 pages. How many total number of pages will 5326 such note-books have?

#### Question 12.

Mohani has 30 m cloth and she wants to make some shirts for her son. If each shirt requires 2 m 30 cm cloth, how many shirts, in all, can be made and how much length of cloth will be lefft ?

Answer
Total length of cloth available = 30 m or 30 x 100 = 3000 cm
Shirt made by using 2m 30cm (230 cm) cloth = 1
Shirts made by using 30 m cloth = $\frac { 1 }{ 230 }$ x 3000 = 13.04 = 13 shirts
Cloth required to make 13 shirts = 230 x 13 = 2990 cm or 29 m 90 cm
Hence, remaining cloth = 30 m – 29 m = 1m

#### Question 13.

The weight of a box is 4 kg 800 gm. What is the total weight of 150 boxes?>
