**(B)What numbers can you make using 3,5 and 7? You can make 357 and 537. What others?**

**Ans. **Three digit numbers made by using 3, 5 and 7 without repetition are 357, 375, 537, 573, 735, 753. These are six in all.

**(C)A number becomes double if it is increased by 8. What is the number?**

**Ans. **Let the number be x. then, as per question, we have.

2x = x+8

2x-x = 8

X = 8

Thus, the required number is 8

**(D)Think of a number which can be divide by 2, 3 and 5 and comes between 25 and 50.**

**Ans. **A number which can be divided by 2, 3 and 5 and comes between 25 and 50 is 30. Because the required number must be divisible by, i.e., 30, and 30 is the only number between 25 and 50 which is divisible by 30.

**(E)A small ant climbs 3 cm in 1 minute but slips down 2 cm. How much time will it take to climb 2 cm?**

**Ans. **Let us represent this problem by a diagram.

Clearly, it takes 2 minutes to climb 2 cm.

OR

Net height attained in 1 minute = (3 -2) cm = 1 cm

Therefore, 2 cm height will be attained in 2 minutes.

**Which Boat do we Take?**

**Q.Indra and Bhanu first went in the motor-boat, then they took the oarboat.**

**How much did they pay in total for both the boats?**

**Ans. **Total amount paid for the motor-boat and the oar-boat by Indra and Bhanu

= Charges for the motor boat + Charges for the oat – boat

= Rs. (2x50)+ Rs. (2x15)= Rs. 100+Rs. 30 =Rs. 130

**Q.How much time did they get for boating?**

**Ans. **Total time for boating in case of Indra and Bhanu

= 20 minutes + 45 minutes + 65 minutes + 1 hour 5 minutes.

Charges for one child= Rs. 30

Therefore, number of children who went for the double-decker trip

=450 ÷ 30 = 15

**Q.Which boat makes two trips in 1 hour?**

**Ans. **Time taken for one trip = 1 x 60 minutes ÷ 2

= (600 ÷ 2)minutes

= 30 minutes.

Clearly, from the table we find that the paddle-boat makes two trips in 1 hour.
