### Practice Time

A) Chocolate bar

Manju had a chocolate. She gave onefourth of it to Raji, one-third to Sugatha and one-sixth to Sheela. She ate the remaining part. How many pieces of chocolate did each get? Write here.

From above picture we know that the number of bites in the chocolate is 12

She gave one-fourth of the chocolate to Raji = ¼ $\times$ 12 = 3 bites

Sugatha got one-third of the chocolate = ⅓ $\times$ 12 = 4 bites

Sheela got one-sixth of the chocolate = ⅙ $\times$ 12 = 2 bites

(i) What part of the chocolate did Manju eat?

Ans: The part of the chocolate that remains with Manju is

= 12-(3+4+2)

= 12-(9)

= 3 bites

Therefore, Manju ate 3 bites of chocolate.

B) Colour the hats

(i) Colour ⅓ of the hats red.

(ii) Colour three-fifth hats blue.

(iii) How many hats did you colour red?

(iv) How many hats did you colour blue?

(v) What part of the hats are not coloured?

Ans: The total number of hats that are given in the picture = 15

(i) Out of 15 hats, ⅓ of the hats are in red

= ⅓ $\times$ 15

= 5 hats

(ii) Out of 15 hats, three-fifth of the hats are in blue colour

= ⅗ $\times$ 15

= 3 $\times$ 3

= 9 hats

(iii) I coloured red to 5 hats.

(iv) I coloured blue to 9 hats

(v) Total number of hats that are coloured are 14

Total number of hats = 15

So, the number of not coloured hat = 15 - 14 = 1 hat

Therefore, $(1/15)^{th}$ part of the hats are not coloured.

C) Equal parts of a triangle

(i) The white triangle is divided into three equal parts. Fill each one-third part with a different colour. Can you show that these parts are equal? Think how.

Ans: Yes, that can be done by making a cut of the parts of the triangle by using tracing paper.

If 1 part is placed over another part, it is seen that the first part fully covers the second part. Along with that the second part also fully covers the first or third part. This shows that all parts are equal.

(ii)  Now try to make three equal parts of this triangle in a different way. Colour each one third with a different colour.

Ans:

The triangle is coloured with different colors

D) Six parts of a rectangle

Rani has divided a green rectangle into six equal parts like this.

Now you divide each of these rectangles into six equal parts. Use a different way for each of the three rectangles.

Ans:

### Discuss

1. How will you check that each part is really one-sixth of that rectangle?

Ans: You can do this by making shapes on tracing paper. Place one shape on top of another. If one shape completely covers the other, and the reverse is also true, then both shapes are equal. Repeat this for all shapes to check if they are each 1/6th of the rectangle.

2. The green rectangle is bigger than the blue one. Can we say that of the green rectangle is bigger than ⅙ of the blue rectangle?

Ans: Yes, if the whole is bigger, then a part of it is also bigger. So, 1/6 of the green rectangle is bigger than 1/6 of the blue rectangle.

Greedy Gatekeepers

Remember Birbal, the clever minister of King Akbar? (MathMagic Class IV, page 14) Do you know how he became a minister?

What happened after that? Complete the story. What part of the prize did the poet get?

Ans: The poet got 100 slaps and was happy. But when he got to the first gate, he had to give half of the slaps to the gatekeeper, which was 50 slaps. When he got to the second gate, he had to give 40 slaps. Finally, when he reached the last gate, he had to give 10 slaps. So, Birbal gave 50 + 40 + 10 = 100 slaps to the three gatekeepers. Because he was smart, Birbal did not get any slaps and taught the gatekeepers a lesson.

Patterns in Parts

1) Make different patterns by colouring some squares in the grids B, C, D. What part of the grid did you colour? What part of the grid remained white? Write

Ans:

2) Look at grid A again. Is the grid coloured —

a) $\dfrac{1}{2}$ blue, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ white?

b) $\dfrac{2}{4}$ blue , $\dfrac{2}{4}$ white?

c) $\dfrac{3}{8}$ blue, $\dfrac{5}{8}$ white?

d) $\dfrac{4}{8}$ blue, $\dfrac{4}{8}$ white?

Mark ($\times$ ) on the wrong answer.

Ans:

a) $\dfrac{1}{2}$ blue, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ white

b) $\dfrac{2}{4}$ blue , $\dfrac{2}{4}$ white

c) $\dfrac{3}{8}$ blue, $\dfrac{5}{8}$ white($\times$)

d) $\dfrac{4}{8}$ blue, $\dfrac{4}{8}$ white

Because,

a) $\dfrac{1}{2}$ blue, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ white = $\dfrac{8}{16}$=$\dfrac{1}{2}$ (divide both denominator and numerator by 8)

b) $\dfrac{2}{4} blue, \dfrac{2}{4} white =\dfrac{8}{16}= \dfrac{2}{8}$ ....(divide both denominator and numerator by 2)

d) $\dfrac{4}{8} blue, \dfrac{4}{8} white =\dfrac{4}{8}= \dfrac{4}{8}$ ....(divide both denominator and numerator by 2)

3) Draw grids of 16 squares and make patterns with

a) $\dfrac{2}{8}$ red, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ yellow, $\dfrac{1}{4}$ green

b) $\dfrac{3}{16}$ blue, $\dfrac{5}{16}$ red, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ yellow

Ans:

a) $\dfrac{2}{8}$ red, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ yellow, $\dfrac{1}{4}$ green

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{2}{8}$ red = $\dfrac{2}{8} \times 16$ = 2 $\times$ 2 = 4 red squares

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{1}{2}$ yellow = $\dfrac{1}{2} \times 16$ = 1 $\times$ 8 = 8 yellow squares

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{1}{4}$ green = $\dfrac{1}{4} \times 16$ = 1 $\times$ 4 = 4 green squares

b) $\dfrac{3}{16}$ blue, $\dfrac{5}{16}$ red, $\dfrac{1}{2}$ yellow

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{3}{16}$ red = $\dfrac{3}{16} \times 16$ = 3 $\times$ 1 = 3 blue squares

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{5}{16}$ red = $\dfrac{5}{16} \times 16$ = 5 $\times$ 1 = 5 red squares

Out of 16 squares $\dfrac{1}{2}$ red = $\dfrac{1}{2} \times 16$ = 1 $\times$ 8 = 8 green squares

Ramu’s Vegetable Field

Ramu’s vegetable field has 9 equal parts. What vegetables does he grow?

1) Which vegetable grows in the biggest part of his field? What part?

Ans: He grows tomatoes in the biggest part of the field.

Out of 9 equal parts, 3 of them contain tomatoes, i,e., $(3/9)^{th}$ part of his field contains tomatoes.

2) On what part of the field does he grow potatoes?

Ans: Out of 9 equal parts, 2 of them contain potatoes.

So, $(2/9)^{th}$ part of his field contains potatoes.

3) What part of the field is used to grow spinach? What part is used for brinjals?

Ans: Out of 9 equal parts, only one part of them contain spinach.

So, $(1/9)^{th}$ part of his field contains spinach.

Out of 9 equal parts, 2 parts of them contain brinjals.

So, $(2/9)^{th}$ part of his field contains brinjals.

4) Now you write some questions by looking at this picture.

Ans:

• Which part of the field is used for growing chillies?

• Which two vegetables are grown on equal part of the field?

Ramu wanted to give these vegetables to his friends. He gave Aboobacker one-fifth of these tomatoes and of the potatoes. Srija got of the tomatoes and of the potatoes. Nancy got the rest of these vegetables. Circle Aboobacker’s share in blue. Circle Srija’s share in yellow.

Ans: From the figure given,

Total number of potatoes = 18

Total number of tomatoes = 20

From the given question,

Ramu wanted to give these vegetables to his friends

Aboobacker got one-fifth of these tomatoes = $\dfrac{1}{5} \times 20$ = 1 $\times$ 4 = 4

Aboobacker got one-fifth of the potatoes = $\dfrac{1}{3} \times 18$ = 1 $\times$ 6 = 6

Srija got $\dfrac{2}{5}$ of the tomatoes = $\dfrac{2}{5} \times 20$ = 2 $\times$ 4 = 8

Srija got $\dfrac{3}{6}$ of the potatoes = $\dfrac{3}{6} \times 18$ = 3 $\times$ 3 = 9

Then, Nancy got the rest of these vegetables

Total number of vegetables, including potatoes and tomatoes = 20 +18 = 38

Number of vegetables Abokobacker and Srija got = 4+6+8+9 = 27

So, Nancy got = 38 - 27 = 11 vegetables

(i) How many potatoes and tomatoes did Nancy get?

Total number of tomatoes = 20

Total number of potatoes = 18

Then,

Number of tomatoes Aboobacker and Srija got = 4+8 = 12

Number of potatoes Aboobacker and Srija got = 6+9 =15

Now,
Number of tomatoes Nancy got = 20 -12 = 8 tomatoes

Number of potatoes Nancy got = 18 -15 = 3

Therefore, Nancy got 3 potatoes and 8 tomatoes.

She lived with her three daughters. She was quite rich and had 19 camels. One day she fell ill. The daughters called the doctor. The doctor tried his best but could not save the woman. After her death, the daughters read what she had written in her will My eldest daughter will get$\dfrac{1}{2}$of my camels My second daughter will get$\dfrac{1}{4}$of my camels My third daughter will get$\dfrac{1}{5}$of my camels The daughters were really puzzled. “How can I get$\dfrac{1}{2}$of the 19 camels?”asked the eldest daughter. “Half of 19 is nine and a half. But we can’t cut the camel!” The second daughter said. “That is right. But what will we do now?” asked the third daughter”. Just then they saw their aunt coming. The daughters told her their problem. “Show me the will. I have an idea. You take my camel. So you have 20 camels. Now can you divide them as your mother wanted?” the aunt said. “You want half of the camels, don’t you? Take 10 camels” she said to the eldest daughter. “Take your share”, the aunt told the second daughter. She took one-fourth of the camels and got _____ camels. “You can take one-fifth of the camels”, the aunt told the third daughter. She got _____ camels. The daughters were very happy and counted their camels 10+ _____ + _____ =19. “The one remaining is mine”, said the aunt and took her camel away! How did this happen? Discuss. Ans: By adding the aunt’s camel, the number of camel became 20. First daughter’s share =$\dfrac{1}{2} of 20$=$\dfrac{1}{2} \times 20$= 10 Second daughter’s share =$\dfrac{1}{4} of 20$=$\dfrac{1}{4} \times 20$= 5 Third daughter’s share =$\dfrac{1}{5} of 20$=$\dfrac{1}{5} \times 20$= 4 So finally, 10+5+4 = 19 which is equal to the given number of camels. But this calculation is not correct mathematically, but it solved the problem of the three sisters.
