Q3: Muniya wants to make a wall 1 metre long. How many bricks will she need to put in a line? __________
Let the length of each brick be 10 cm.
Length of wall = 1 m.
As the length of brick in cm, the length of the wall will be converted to cm for calculation. We know that 1 m = 100 cm.
Therefore, Length of wall (in cm) = 1 ×100 cm = 100 cm
Number of bricks required to make a 100 cm long wall = Length of wall ÷ Length of 1 brick
= 100 ÷10 = 10
The number of bricks required to make 1 m long wall = 10.

Mental Math: Bhajan Buys Bricks
Q1: Bhajan went to buy bricks. The price was given for one thousand bricks. The prices were also different for different types of bricks.
|Old bricks||– Rs 1200 for one thousand bricks|
|New bricks from Intapur||– Rs 1800 for one thousand bricks|
|New bricks from Brickabad||– Rs 2000 for one thousand bricks|
Bhajan decided to buy the new bricks from Brickabad. He bought three thousand bricks. How much did he pay? ___________
Bhajan bought new bricks from Brickabad.
Cost of one new brick from Brickabad = Rs 2000÷1000 = Rs 2
Cost of 3000 new bricks bought from Brickabad = Rs 2×3000 = Rs 6000
Bhajan bought 500 old bricks and the cost of 1000 old bricks = Rs 1200
We have to find the cost of 500 old bricks, which is half of 1000 bricks.
Therefore, Cost of 500 old bricks = Rs 1200 ÷ 2 = Rs 600
Thus, the cost of 500 old bricks = Rs 600
