2. Sarika bought $\dfrac{2}{5}$ meter of ribbon and Lalita $\dfrac{3}{4}$ meter of ribbon. What is the total length of the ribbon they bought?

Ans: The total amount of ribbon bought by Sarita is $\dfrac{2}{5}$ meter and the ribbon bought by Lalita is $\dfrac{3}{4}$ meter.

To find the total length of the ribbon bought, we will add both the measurements.

${\text{Total length}} = \dfrac{2}{5} + \dfrac{3}{4}$

Take the LCM of  denominator to find the above sum.

The LCM of 4 and 5 is 20.

\[{\text{Total length}} = \dfrac{{2 \times 4 + 5 \times 3}}{{20}}\]

\[{\text{Total length}} = \dfrac{{8 + 15}}{{20}}\]

\[{\text{Total length}} = \dfrac{{23}}{{20}}\]

Hence, the total length of ribbon bought is $\dfrac{{23}}{{20}}$ meter.


3. Naina was given $1\dfrac{1}{2}$ piece of cake and Najma was given $1\dfrac{1}{3}$ piece of cake. Find the total amount of cake given to both of them.

Ans: Naina got $1\dfrac{1}{2}$piece of cake, that is, $\dfrac{3}{2}$ piece of cake.

Najma bought $1\dfrac{1}{3}$ piece of cake, that is, $\dfrac{4}{3}$ piece of cake.

So, add the fractions to get the total amount of cake that was given to Naina and Najma.

${\text{Total cake}} = \dfrac{3}{2} + \dfrac{4}{3}$.

To find the above addition, we will take the LCM of the denominators and solve.

The LCM of 2 and 3 is 6.

${\text{Total cake}} = \dfrac{{3 \times 3 + 4 \times 2}}{6}$

${\text{Total cake}} = \dfrac{{9 + 8}}{6}$

${\text{Total cake}} = \dfrac{{17}}{6}$

Hence, the total amount of cake they both have is $\dfrac{{17}}{6}$.


4. Fill in the boxes.

  1. $\boxed{} - \dfrac{5}{8} = \dfrac{1}{4}$

Ans:Add $\dfrac{5}{8}$ to both sides and take LCM of 4 and 8.

The LCM of 4 and 8 is 32.

\[\dfrac{1}{4} + \dfrac{5}{8} = \dfrac{{1 \times 2 + 1 \times 5}}{8}\]

$\dfrac{1}{4} + \dfrac{5}{8} = \dfrac{{2 + 5}}{8}$

$\dfrac{1}{4} + \dfrac{5}{8} = \dfrac{7}{8}$

Hence, the missing fraction is $\dfrac{7}{8}$.


  1. $\boxed{} - \dfrac{1}{5} = \dfrac{1}{2}$

Ans:Add $\dfrac{1}{5}$ to both sides and take LCM of 2 and 5.

The LCM of 2 and 5 is 10.

\[\dfrac{1}{5} + \dfrac{1}{2} = \dfrac{{1 \times 2 + 1 \times 5}}{{10}}\]

$\dfrac{1}{5} + \dfrac{1}{2} = \dfrac{{2 + 5}}{{10}}$

$\dfrac{1}{5} + \dfrac{1}{2} = \dfrac{7}{{10}}$

Hence, the missing fraction is $\dfrac{7}{{10}}$.


  1. $\dfrac{1}{2} - \boxed{} = \dfrac{1}{6}$

Ans: Subtract $\dfrac{1}{6}$ from both sides.

Take LCM of 2 and 6.

The LCM of 2 and 6 is 6.

$\dfrac{1}{2} - \dfrac{1}{6} = \dfrac{{1 \times 3 - 1 \times 1}}{6}$

$\dfrac{1}{2} - \dfrac{1}{6} = \dfrac{{3 - 1}}{6}$

$\dfrac{1}{2} - \dfrac{1}{6} = \dfrac{2}{6}$

Hence, the missing fraction is $\dfrac{2}{6}$.


5. Complete the addition-subtraction box:

  1. (Image will be uploaded soon)

Ans: To complete the given box, add the rows and subtract the column simultaneously.

Add $\dfrac{2}{3}$and $\dfrac{4}{3}$.

$\dfrac{2}{3} + \dfrac{4}{3} = \dfrac{{2 + 4}}{3}$

$\dfrac{2}{3} + \dfrac{4}{3} = \dfrac{6}{3}$

Add $\dfrac{1}{3}$ and $\dfrac{2}{3}$.

$\dfrac{1}{3} + \dfrac{2}{3} = \dfrac{{1 + 2}}{3}$

$\dfrac{1}{3} + \dfrac{2}{3} = \dfrac{3}{3}$

Subtract $\dfrac{2}{3}$ and $\dfrac{1}{3}$.

$\dfrac{2}{3} - \dfrac{1}{3} = \dfrac{{2 - 1}}{3}$

$\dfrac{2}{3} - \dfrac{1}{3} = \dfrac{1}{3}$

Subtract $\dfrac{4}{3}$ and $\dfrac{2}{3}$.

$\dfrac{4}{3} - \dfrac{2}{3} = \dfrac{{4 - 2}}{3}$

$\dfrac{4}{3} - \dfrac{2}{3} = \dfrac{2}{3}$

Now, complete the third column. To do so, subtract $\dfrac{6}{3}$ and $\dfrac{3}{3}$.

$\dfrac{6}{3} - \dfrac{3}{3} = \dfrac{{6 - 3}}{3}$

$\dfrac{6}{3} - \dfrac{3}{3} = \dfrac{3}{3}$

Therefore, the complete box is as follows.

(Image will be uploaded soon)


6. A piece of wire $\dfrac{7}{8}$ meter long broke into two pieces. One piece was $\dfrac{1}{4}$ meter long. How long is the other piece?

Ans: The total length of the wire is $\dfrac{7}{8}$ meter. The length of the first piece is $\dfrac{1}{4}$ meter.

The length of remaining part will be,

${\text{Remaining part}} = \dfrac{7}{8} - \dfrac{1}{4}$

Take the LCM of denominator to find the above difference.

The LCM of 4 and 8 is 32.

${\text{Remaining part}} = \dfrac{{7 - 2}}{8}$

${\text{Remaining part}} = \dfrac{5}{8}$

Therefore, the length of the remaining part  $\dfrac{5}{8}$ meter.


7. Nandini house is $\dfrac{9}{{10}}$ km from her school. She walked some distance and then took as bus for $\dfrac{1}{2}$ km to reach the school. How far did she walk?

Ans: The total distance between school and house is $\dfrac{9}{{10}}$ km and the distance covered by bus is $\dfrac{1}{2}$ km.

The distance she has to walk can be found out by finding the difference between the distance covered by bus and distance between school and house.

\[{\text{Remaining distance}} = \dfrac{9}{{10}} - \dfrac{1}{2}\]

Take the LCM of denominator to find the above difference.

The LCM of 10 and 2 is 10.

\[{\text{Remaining distance}} = \dfrac{{9 - 5}}{{10}}\]

\[{\text{Remaining distance}} = \dfrac{4}{{10}}\]

Thus, the remaining distance is $\dfrac{4}{{10}}$ km.


8. Ahsa and Samuel have bookshelves of the same size partly filled with books. Asha’s shelf is${\dfrac{5}{6}^{{\text{th}}}}$full and Samuel’s shelf is ${\dfrac{2}{5}^{{\text{th}}}}$ full. Whose bookshelf is filled with more books? By what fraction?

Ans: To solve this, we will make the denominator of both the fraction equal.

To do so, multiply the numerator and denominator of $\dfrac{5}{6}$ and $\dfrac{2}{5}$ by 5 and 6 respectively.

$\dfrac{{5 \times 5}}{{6 \times 5}} = \dfrac{{25}}{{30}}$

$\dfrac{{2 \times 6}}{{5 \times 6}} = \dfrac{{12}}{{30}}$

Thus, $\dfrac{{25}}{{30}}\boxed > \dfrac{{12}}{{30}}$.

Therefore, $\dfrac{5}{6}\boxed > \dfrac{2}{5}$. Asha’s bookshelf is more covered than Samuel.

The difference between the books they both have is,

\[{\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{{25}}{{30}} - \dfrac{{12}}{{30}}\]

\[{\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{{25 - 12}}{{30}}\]

\[{\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{{13}}{{30}}\]

Thus, Asha’s book shelf is covered with more books and she has $\dfrac{{13}}{{30}}$ more books in her shelf.


9. Jaidev takes $2\dfrac{1}{5}$ minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes $\dfrac{7}{4}$ minutes to do same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?

Ans: The total time taken by Jaidev is$2\dfrac{1}{5}$ minutes.

On converting $2\dfrac{1}{5}$ we get, 

$2\dfrac{1}{5} = \dfrac{{11}}{5}{\text{minutes}}$

The total time taken by Rahul is $\dfrac{7}{4}$ minutes.

To find who takes less time we will find the difference between time taken by Jaidev and Rahul.

$\dfrac{{11}}{5} - \dfrac{7}{4}$

Take LCM of 5 and 4. Thus, the LCM of 5 and 4 is 20.

${\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{{11 \times 4 - 7 \times 5}}{{20}}$

${\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{{44 - 35}}{{20}}$

${\text{Difference}} = \dfrac{9}{{20}}\,{\text{minutes}}$

Thus, Rahul takes less time, which is $\dfrac{9}{{20}}$ minutes.
