**Exercise 12.2****Question 1:****Determine if the following are in proportion.****(a) 15, 45, 40, 120 ****(b) 33, 121, 9, 96****(c) 24, 28, 36, 48 ****(d) 32, 48, 70, 210****(e) 4, 6, 8, 12 ****(f) 33, 44, 75, 100****Answer 1:****(a) **

Since 15:45 = 40:120

Therefore, 15,45,40,120 are in proportion.

Since 33:121 â‰ 9:96

Therefore. 33,121, 9,96 are not in proportion.

Since 24 : 28 â‰ 36 : 48

Therefore, 24, 28,36, 48 are not in proportion.

Since 32:48 â‰ 70:210

Therefore, 32,48, 70, 210 are not in proportion.

Since 4:6 = 8:12

Therefore, 4, 6, 8,12 are in proportion.

Since 33:44 = 75:100

Therefore, 33, 44, 75,100 are in proportion.**Question 2:****Write True (T) or False (F) against each of the following statements:****(a) 16:24::20:30 ****(b) 21:6::35:10****(c) 12:18::28:12 ****(d) 8:9::24:27****(e) 5.2:3.9::3:4 ****(f) 0.9:0.36::10:4****Answer 2:****Question 3:****Are the following statements true?****(a) 40 persons: 200 persons = Rs 15: Rs 75****(b) 7.5 litres: 15 litres = 5 kg: 10 kg****(c) 99 kg: 45 kg = Rs 44: Rs 20****(d) 32 m: 64 m = 6 sec: 12 sec****(e) 45 km: 60 km = 12 hours: 15 hours****Answer 3:****(a) 40 persons: 200 persons = **

Since, 40 persons : 200 persons = Rs 15 : Rs75

Hence, the statement is true.

(b) 7.5 litres : 15 litres

Since, 7.5 litres : 15 litres = 5 kg : 10 kg

Hence, the statement is true.

(c)

Since, 99 kg: 45 kg = Rs 44 : Rs 20

Hence, the statement is true.

Since, 32 m : 64 m = 6 sec : 12 sec

Hence, the statement is true.

Since, 45 km : 60 km â‰ 12 hours : 15 hours

Hence, the statement is not true.**Question 4:****Determine if the following ratios form a proportion. Also, write the middle terms and extreme terms where the ratios form a proportion.****(a) 25 cm: 1 m and Rs 40 : Rs 160****(b) 39 litres: 65 litres and 6 bottles: 10 bottles****(c) 2 kg: 80 kg and 25 g: 625 g****(d) 200 mL: 2.5 litre and Rs 4: Rs 50****Answer 4:****(a) **25 cm : 1 m = 25 cm : (1 x 100) cm = 25 cm : 100 cm

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.**Middle terms = 1 m, Rs 40 and Extreme terms = 25 cm, Rs 160**

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.**Middle terms = 65 litres, 6 bottles and Extreme terms = 39 litres, 10 bottles**

Since the ratios are not equal, therefore these are not in proportion,

(d) 200 ml :2.5 litres = 200 ml:(25000) litres = 200 ml: 2500 ml

Since the ratios are equal, therefore these are in proportion.**Middle terms = 2.5 litres, Rs 4 and Extreme terms = 200 ml, Rs 50****Exercise 12.3 ****Question 1:****If the cost of 7 m of cloth is Rs 294, find the cost of 5 m of cloth.****Answer 1:**

Cost of 7 m of cloth = Rs 294

âˆ´ Cost of 1 m of cloth

âˆ´** **Cost of 5 m of cloth = 42 x 5 = Rs 210**Thus, the cost of 5 m of cloth is Rs 210.****Question 2: ****Ekta earns Rs 1500 in 10 days. How much will she earn in 30 days? ****Answer 2:**

Earning of 10 days = Rs 1500

âˆ´ Earning of 1 day

âˆ´ Earning of 30 days = 150 x 30 = Rs 4500**Thus, the earning of 30 days is Rs 4,500.****Question 3: ****If it has rained 276 mm in the last 3 days, how many cm of rain will fall in one full week (7 days)? Assume that the rain continues to fall at the same rate. ****Answer 3:**

Rain in 3 days = 276 mm

Rain in 1 day

âˆ´ Rain in 7 days = 92x7 = 644 mm**As 1mm = 0.1cm**

âˆ´ 644mm = 64.4cm**Thus, the rain in 7 days is 64.4 cm.****Question 4: ****Cost of 5 kg of wheat is Rs 30.50. ****(a) What will be the cost of 8 kg of wheat? ****(b) What quantity of wheat can be purchased in Rs 61? ****Answer 4:****(a) **Cost of 5 kg of wheat = Rs 30.50

âˆ´ Cost of 1 kg of wheat

âˆ´ Cost of 8 kg of wheat = 6.10 x 8 = Rs 48.80

**(b)** From Rs 30.50, quantity of wheat can be purchased = 5 kg

âˆ´ From Rs 1, quantity of wheat can be purchased

From Rs 61, quantity of wheat can be purchase**Question 5: ****The temperature dropped 15 degree Celsius in the last 30 days. If the rate of temperature drop remains the same, how many degrees will the temperature drop in the next ten days? ****Answer 5:**

Degree of temperature dropped in last 30 days = 15 degrees

Temperature drop in 1 day

Temperature drop in next 10 days **So, there will be a temperature drop of 5Â° Celsius in next 10 days.****Question 6: ****Shaina pays Rs 7500 as rent for 3 months. How much does she has to pay for a whole year, if the rent per month remains same?****Answer 6:**

Rent paid for 3 months = Rs 7500

âˆ´ Rent paid for 1 month

âˆ´ Rent paid for 12 months = 2500 x 12 = Rs 30,000**Thus, the total rent for one year is Rs 30,000.****Question 7: ****Cost of 4 dozens bananas is Rs 60. How many bananas can be purchased for Rs 12.50? ****Answer 7:**

Cost of 4 dozen bananas = Rs 60

Cost of 48 bananas = Rs 60 ** [****4 dozen = 4 x 12 = 48]**

âˆ´From Rs 60, number of bananas which can be purchased = 48

From Rs 1, number of bananas which can be purchased** **

From Rs 12.50, number of bananas which can be purchased** ** =10 bananas**Thus, 10 bananas can be purchased for Rs 12.50.****Question 8: ****The weight of 72 books is 9 kg what is the weight of 40 such books? ****Answer 8:**

The weight of 72 books = 9 kg

The weight of 1 book

âˆ´ The weight of 40 books **Thus, the weight of 40 books is 5 kg.****Question 9: ****A truck requires 108 litres of diesel for covering a distance of 594 km. How much diesel will be required by the truck to cover a distance of 1650 km? ****Answer 9:**

For covering 594 km, a truck will be required diesel = 108 litres

âˆ´ For covering 1 km, a truck will be required diesel** **

âˆ´** **For covering 1650 km, a truck will be required diesel **Thus, 300 litres diesel is required by the truck to cover a distance of 1650 km.****Question 10: ****Raju purchases 10 pens for Rs 150 and Manish buys 7 pens for Rs 84. Can you say who got the pen cheaper? ****Answer 10:**

Raju purchase 10 pens for = Rs 150

âˆ´ Raju purchases 1 pen for

Manish purchases 7 pens for = Rs 84

âˆ´ Manish purchases 1 pen for **Thus, Manish got the pens cheaper.****Question 11: ****Anish made 42 runs in 6 overs and Anup made 63 runs in 7 overs. Who made more runs per over? ****Answer 11:**

Anish made in 6 overs = 42 runs

âˆ´** **Anish made in 1 overs

âˆ´ Anup made in 1 overs **Thus, Anup made more runs per over.**
