### Question: 9

A piece of a wire 7/8 metres long broke into two pieces. One piece was 1/4 meter long. How long is the other piece?

### Solution:

Length of the wire = 7/8 metres

Length of one piece of wire = 1/4 metres

Let the length of the second piece of wire be x m.

Therefore, Length of the wire = length of one piece + length of the second piece

Therefore, the length of the second piece is 5/8 metres

### Question: 10

Shikha and priya have bookshelves of the same size shikha’s shelf is 5/6 full of book and priya’s shelf is 2/5 full. Whose bookshelf is more full? By what fraction?

### Question: 11

Ravish’s house is 9/10 Km from his school. He walked some distance and then took a bus for 1/2 Km. How far did he walk?

### Solution:

Total distance between the house and the school = 9/10 Km

Distance covered in the bus = 1/2 Km

Distance covered by walking + distance covered in the bus = total distance between

the house and the school

Distance covered by walking = total distance between the house and the school – Distance

covered in the bus

Distance covered by walking:

9/10 Km – 1/2 Km

LCM of 10 and 2 is 10, so we convert each fraction into an equivalent fraction with denominator 10
