### Question: 9

A vehicle covers a distance of 43.2 km in 2.4 litres of petrol. How much distance will it travel in 1 litre of petrol?

### Solution:

Distance covered in 2.4 litres of petrol = 43.2 km

Distance covered in 1 litre of petrol = 43.2/2.4

The distance travelled in 1 litre of petrol is 18 km

### Question: 10

The total weight of some bags of wheat is 1743 kg. If each bag weights 49.8 kg, how many bags are there?

### Solution:

Total weight of bags of wheat = 1743 kg

Each bag weight = 49.8 kg

No of bags = 1743/49.8

= 35

Therefore the total numbers of bags are 35

### Question: 11

Shikha cuts 50 m of cloth into pieces of 1.25 m each. How many pieces does she get?

### Solution:

Total length of cloth = 50 m

Length of each piece of cloth = 1.25 m

= 5000/125

= 40 pieces

Therefore Shikha got 40 pieces

### Question: 12

Each side of a rectangular polygon is 2.5 cm in length. The perimeter of the polygon is 12.5 cm. How many sides does the polygon have?

### Solution:

Length of each side of rectangular polygon = 5.2 cm
Perimeter of polygon = 12.5 cm
No of sides polygon has = 12.5 cm
No of sides polygon have = 12.5/2.5

= 5

Therefore the sides of the polygon is 5

### Question: 13

The product of two decimals is 42.987. If one of them is 12.46, find the other.

### Solution:

We have,

The product of the given decimals = 42.987

one decimal = 12.46

The other decimal = 42.987/12.46

= 3.45

The number is 3.45

### Question: 14

The weight of 34 bags of sugar is 3483.3 kg. If all bags weigh equally, find the weight of each bag.

### Solution:

Total weight of sugar = 3483.3kg

No of bags = 34

Weight of each bag = 3483.3/34

= 102.45 kg

Therefore weight of each bag is 102.45 kg

### Question: 15

How many buckets of equal capacity can be filled from 586.5 litres of water, if each bucket has capacity of 8.5 litres?

### Solution:

Capacity of each bucket = 805 litres

Total water available = 586.5 litres

Number of buckets = 805/586.5

= 69

Total number of buckets is 69
