Q10: The capacity of a water tank is 300 litres. Express its capacity in millilitres.
Ans: We know that
1 litre = 1000 mL

Q12: A student multiplied 3759 by 231 instead of multiplying by 213. How much was his product greater than the correct product?
Ans:
First Method:
(3759 x 231)-(3759 x 213) = 868329 – 800667 = 67662
Second Method:
3759 x (231 – 213) = 3759 x 18 = 67662
Hence, the product difference is 67662.

Q13: The distance between the school and Reena’s house is 1 km 480 m. Everyday she walks both ways. What distance does she cover in 6 days of a week?
Ans:
Distance covered when she walks one way = 1 km 480 m = 1480 m
Therefore, the distance covered when she walk both ways in a day = 1480 x 2 m = 2960 m
Total distance covered by Reena in 6 days = 2960 x 6 m = 17760 m or 17 km 760 m.

Q14: To stitch a pant 1 m 15 cm cloth is needed. Out of 36 m cloth, how many pants can be stitched and how much cloth will remain?
Ans:

Cloth required to stitch 1 pant = 1 m 15 cm
= 100 cm + 15 cm [∵ 1 m = 100 cm]
= 115 cm
Total cloth = 36 m = 36 x 100 cm = 3600 cm
Therefore number of pants stitched = 3600115
Hence, 31 pants can be stitched and cloth left over is 35 cm.

Q15: There are two factories located at place P and the other at place Q. From these factories, a certain commodity is to be delivered to each of the depots situated at A, B and C. Weekly production of commodity by P and Q are 120 kg and 150 kg respectively. Weekly requirement of commodity by A, B and C are 80 kg, 90 kg and 100 kg respectively. P delivers 60 kg to A, 40 kg to B and 20 kg to C. How much amount of the commodity should Q deliver to A, B and C to meet their requirement? If the rate of the commodity is ? 20 per kg, find the total amount to be paid to P and Q.
Ans:

Amount of commodity delivered by P to A = 60 kg
Amount of commodity delivered by Q to A = 80 – 60 = 20 kg
Amount of commodity delivered by P to B = 40 kg
Amount of commodity delivered by Q to B – 90 – 40 = 50 kg
Amount of commodity delivered by P to C = 20
Amount of commodity delivered by Q to C = 100 – 20 = 80 kg.
Now Amount of money to be paid to P by A, B and C = ₹( 60 x 20 + 40 x 20 + 20 x 20)
= ₹ (1200 + 800 + 400)
= ₹ 2400
and amount of money to be paid to Q by A, B and C
= ₹ (20 x 20 + 50 x 20 + 80 x 20)
= ₹ (400 + 1000 + 1600) = ₹ 3000
Hence, the total amount
= ₹ 2400 + ₹ 3000 = ₹ 5400.
