Ques 3: (i) Express 5 cm in metre and kilometer.
(ii) Express 35 mm in cm, m and km.
Ans:
(i) Express 5 cm in meter and kilometer.
∵ 100 cm = 1 meter
∴ 1 cm = 1/100 meter
⇒ 5 cm = 5/100 = 0.05 meter
Now,
∴ 1000 meters = 1 kilometers
∴ 1 meters = 1/1000 kilometer
⇒ 0.05 meter = 0.05/1000 = 0.00005 kilometer
(ii) Express 35 mm in cm, m and km.
∵ 10 mm = 1 cm
∴ 1 mm  = 1/10 cm
⇒ 35 mm = 35/100 = 3.5 cm
Now, ∵ 100 cm = 1 meter
∴ 1 cm = 1/100 meter
⇒ 3.5 cm  = 3.5/100 = 0.035 meter
Again,
∵ 1000 meters = 1 kilometers
∴ 1 meter = 1/1000 kilometers
⇒ 0.035 meter = 0.035/1000 = 0.000035 kilometer

Ques 4:  Express in kg.
(i) 200 g

(iii) 4 kg 8 g
Ans:
Let us consider, 1000 g = 1 kg

(i)
(ii)
(iii)  4kg 8 g = = 5 kg + 0.008 kg = 4.005 kg

Ques 5: Write the following decimal numbers in the expanded form:
(i) 20.03
(ii) 2.03
(iii) 200.03
(iv) 2.034
Ans:
(i)
(ii)
(iii)
(iv)

Ques 6: Write the place value of 2 in the following decimal numbers:
(i) 2.56
(ii) 21.37
(iii) 10.25
(iv) 9.42
(v) 63.352
Ans:
(i) Place value of 2 in 2.56 = 2 x 1 = 2 ones
(ii)  Place value of 2 in 21.37 = 2 x 10 = 2 tens
(iii) Place value of 2 in 10.25
(iv) Place value of 2 in 9.42
(v) Place value of 2 in 63.352

Ques 7: Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayub went from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much?

Ans:

Distance travelled by Dinesh when he went from place A to place B = 7.5 km and from place B to C = 12.7 km.
Total distance covered by Dinesh = AB + BC
= 7.5 + 12.7
= 20.2 km
Total distance covered by Ayub = AD + DC
= 9.3 + 11.8
= 21.1 km
On comparing the total distance of Ayub and Dinesh,
21.1 km > 20.2 km
Therefore, Ayub covered more distance by 21.1 – 20.2 = 0.9 km = 900 m

Ques 8: Shyam bought 5 kg 300 g apples and 3 kg 250 g mangoes. Sarala bought 4 kg 800 g oranges and 4 kg 150 g bananas. Who bought more fruits?
Ans: Total weight of fruits bought by Shyam = 5 kg 300 g + 3 kg 250 g = 8 kg 550 g
Total weight of fruits bought by Sarala = 4 kg 800 g + 4 kg 150 g = 8 kg 950 g
On comparing the quantity of fruits, 8 kg 550 g < 8 kg 950 g
Therefore, Sarala bought more fruits.

Ques: How much less is 28 km than 42.6 km?
Ans: We have to find the difference of 42.6 km and 28 km.
Difference = 42.6 – 28.0 = 14.6 km
Therefore 14.6 km less is 28 km than 42.6 km.
