Exercise 1.2 Q1. A book exhibition was held for four days in a school. The number of tickets sold at the counter on the first, second, third and final day was respectively 1094, 1812, 2050 and 2751. Find the total number of tickets sold on all the four days.
Ans: Number of tickets sold on first day = 1,094
Number of tickets sold on second day = 1,812
Number of tickets sold on third day = 2,050
Number of tickets sold on fourth day = 2,751
Total tickets sold = 7,707
Therefore, 7,707 tickets were sold on all the four days.

Ans: Total runs scored by Shekhar = 6,980
Number of run he wishes to complete = 10,000
Number of runs he needs
= Total runs he wishes to get - Runs Scored
= 10,000 - 6,980
= 3020

Q3. In an election, the successful candidate registered 5,77,500 votes and his nearest rival secured 3,48,700 votes. By what margin did the successful candidate win the election?
Ans: Number of votes secured by successful candidates = 5,77,500
Number of votes secured by his nearest rival = 3,48,700

Q4. Kirti Bookstore sold books worth Rs 2,85,891 in the first week of June and books worth Rs 4,00,768 in the second week of the month. How much was the sale for the two weeks together? In which week was the sale greater and by how much?
Ans: Books sold in first week = 2,85,891
Books sold in second week = 4,00,768
Total books sold = 6,86,659
Since 4,00,768,> 2,85,891
Therefore, Sale of the second week is greater than that of the first week.
Books sold in second week = 4,00,768
Books sold in first week = 2,85,891
Difference in sales of week 1 and week 2 = 4,00,768 - 2,85,891
= 1,14,877

Q9. To stitch a shirt 2 m 15 cm cloth is needed. Out of 40 m cloth, how many shirts can be stitched and how much cloth will remain?
Ans: Cloth required to stitch one shirt = 2 m 15 cm = (2 x 100) cm + 15 cm = 215 cm
Length of cloth = 40 m = 40 x 100 cm = 4000 cm
Number of shirts that can be stitched = 4000/215 Therefore, 18 shirts can be stitched and 130 cm (1 m 30 cm) cloth will remain.

Q10. Medicine is packed in boxes, each weighing 4 kg 500 g. How many such boxes can be loaded in a can which cannot carry beyond 800 kg?
Ans: The weight of one box = 4 kg 500 g = 4 x 1000 g + 500 g = 4500 g
Maximum load can be loaded in van = 800 kg = 800 x 1000 g = 800000 g
Number of boxes = 800000/4500 Therefore, 177 boxes can be loaded.

Q11. The distance between the school and the house of a student’s house is 1 km 875 m. Every day she walks both ways. Find the total distance covered by her in six days.
Ans: Distance between school and home = 1.875 km
Distance between home and school = + 1.875 km
Total distance covered in one day = 3.750 km
Distance covered in six days = 3.750 x 6 = 22.500 km.
Therefore, 22 km 500 m distance covered in six days.

Q12. A vessel has 4 liters and 500 ml of curd. In how many glasses each of 25 ml capacity, can it be filled?
Ans: Capacity of curd in a vessel = 4 litres 500 ml = 4 x 1000 ml + 500 ml = 4500 ml
Capacity of one glass = 25 ml
Number of glasses can be filled = 4500/25 Therefore, 180 glasses can be filled by curd.

(d) 9250 x 29
Ans:
(a) 578 x 161
578 round off to 600
161 round off to 200
The estimated product = 600 x 200 = 1,20,000
(b) 5281 x 3491
5281 round of to 5,000
3491 round off to 3,500
