11. Try these:

(a) Kannu made a necklace of 17 sea-shellls. How many such necklaces can be made using 100 sea-shells?

Ans. (a) Let us do this problem by the process of repeated subtraction.

(1) 100 – 17 = 83

(2) 83 – 17 = 66

(3) 66 – 17 = 49

(4) 49 -17 = 32

(5) 32 – 17 = 15

Thus, Kannu can make 5 necklaces of 17 sea-shells using 100 sea-shells. He will also be left with 15 sea-shells as unused.


(b) One carton can hold 85 soaps. Shally wants to pack 338 soaps. How many cartons does the need for packing all of them?

Ans. (b) By the process of repeated subtraction, we have

(1) 338 – 85 = 253

(2) 253 – 85 = 168

(3) 168 – 85 = 83


(c) Manpreet wants 1500 sacks of cement for making a house. A truck carries 250 sacks at a time. How many trips will the truck make? A driver charges Rs 500 for a trip. How much will Manpreet pay the driver for all the trips?

Ans. (c) By the process of repeated subtraction, we have

(1) 1500 – 250 = 1250

(2) 1250 – 250 = 1000

(3) 1000 – 250 = 750

(4) 750 – 250 = 500

(5) 500 – 250 = 250

(6) 250 – 250 = 0

Thus, the truck will make 6 trips to carry 1500 sacks of cement.

Driver’s charge for 1 trip = Rs. 500

Therefore, driver’s charge for 6 trips = Rs. (500 x 6) = Rs. 3000

Thus, the money paid by Manpreet to driver = Rs. 3000.

12. Gangu’s Sweets:

(a) Are the sweets in the tray enough to pack 23 small boxes?

Ans. (a) Laddoos needed for 23 small boxes at the rate of 4 per pack = 4x23 = 92. Because 92 > 80, so the sweets in the tray are not enough.

(b) How many more sweets are needed?

Ans. (b) Number of more sweets needed = 92 – 80 = 12.


(c) Gangu also has a bigger box in which he pack 12 laddoos. How many boxes does he used he need for packing 60 laddoos?

Ans. (c) Number of boxes needed for packing 60 laddoos at the rate of 12 per pack = 60/12 = 5.

13. Neelu brought 15 storybooks to her class. Today 45 students are present. How many children will need to share one book?

Ans. Number of students = 45

Number of story books = 15

Number of children sharing one book = 45/15 = 3

Thus, 3 children will need to share one book.

14. A family of 8 people needs 60 kg wheat for a month. How much wheat does this family need for a week?

Ans. Wheat needed by a family for a month =60 kg

Therefore, wheat needed by a family for a week = (60/4) = 15 kg.

15. Razia wants change for Rs. 500. How many notes will she get if she wants in return.

Ans. (1) Number of notes required = 500/100 = 5

(2) Number of notes required = 500/50= 10

(3) Number of notes required = 500/20 = 25

(4) Number of notes required = 500/5 = 100

16. You have to distribute 72 tomatoes equally in baskets. How many tomatoes will there be in each?

Ans. Number of tomatoes = 72

Number of baskets = 3

Number of tomatoes distributed equally per basket = 72/3 = 24.

17. There are 350 bricks in a hand-cart. Binod found the weight of a brick to be 2 kg. What will be the weight of all the blocks?

18. How will Lokesh distribute the rest of the money? Complete it.

Ans. Lokesh will distribute the rest of the money, that is, Rs. 15 among 5 by finding 15/5 , which is 3.

Or, it can be completed as under:

NCERT Solutions 

Lokesh distributed Rs. 3 more. Now nothing is left. And all the money is divided equally.

So, each child gets 5 + 6+ 3 = 14 rupees.

Checking of answer:

Since, 14x5 = 70, so answer is correct.

19. Now use your own method to divide Rs. 70 equally among 5 people. If you want you can start by giving Rs. 2 to each. Or you can even start with Rs. 11 to each.

Ans. Let us start with Rs. 11 to each.

First, I give Rs. 11 to each.

NCERT Solutions

I have distributed 11 x 5 = 55 rupees. Next, I give Rs. 3 more to everyone. I have distributed 5x3 – 15 rupees. Now nothing is left. And all the money is divided equally. So, each child gets 11+ 3= 14 rupees.

20. Can you start with Rs. 15 to each?

Ans. We cannot start with Rs. 15 as Rs. 15 x 5 = Rs. 75, which is more than Rs. 70.

(i) Meera made 204 candles to sell in the market. She makes packets of 6. How many packets will she make? If she packs them in packets of 12 then how many packets will she make?

Ans. (i) Number of candles = 204

Number of packets at the rate of 6 packets = 204/ 6 = 34

 NCERT Solutions

 Thus, the required number of packets = 34.

Number of packet @ 12 per packet = 204/12  = 17.

 NCERT Solutions

 Thus, the required number of packet = 17.


(j) On sports day 161 children are in the school playground. They are standing in 7 equal rows. How many children are there in each row?

Ans. (i) Number of children = 161
