Exercise 8.5
1. Find the sum in each of the following:
$\mathbf{0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ {}&{}&0&.&0&0&7 \\ {}&{}&8&.&5&{}&{} \\ {}&3&0&.&0&8&{} \\ \hline {}&3&8&.&5&8&7\\ \hline \end{array}$
$\therefore 0.007 + 8.5 + 30.08 = 35.587$
$\mathbf{15 + 0.632 + 13.8}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ {}&1&5&.&0&0&0 \\ {}&{}&{}&.&6&3&2 \\ {}&1&3&.&8&{}&{} \\\hline{}&2&9&.&4&3&2\\ \hline \end{array}$
$\therefore 15 + 0.632 + 13.8= 29.432$
$\mathbf{27.076 + 0.55 + 0.08}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ {}&2&7&.&0&7&6 \\ {}&{}&0&.&5&5&{} \\ {}&{}&0&.&0&8&{} \\ \hline {}&2&7&.&7&0&6\\ \hline \end{array}$
$27.076 + 0.55 + 0.08= 27.706$
$\mathbf{25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ {}&2&5&.&6&5&{} \\ {}&{}&9&.&0&0&5 \\ {}&{}&3&.&7&{}&{} \\ \hline {}&3&8&.&3&5&5\\ \hline \end{array}$
$\therefore 25.65 + 9.005 + 3.7= 38.355$
$\mathbf{0.75 + 10.425 + 2}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ {}&{}&0&.&7&5&{} \\ {}&1&0&.&4&2&5 \\ {}&{}&2&.&{}&{}&{} \\ \hline {}&1&3&.&1&7&5\\ \hline \end{array}$
$\therefore 0.75 + 10.425 + 2= 13.175$
$\mathbf{280.69 + 25.2 + 38}$
Ans: Add values of the same places to get the sum.
$ + \begin{array}{*{20}{c}} H&T&O&.&{Tenth}&{Hund.}&{Thou.} \\ 2&8&0&.&6&9&{} \\ {}&2&5&.&2&{}&{} \\ {}&3&8&.&{}&{}&{} \\ \hline 3&4&3&.&8&9&{}\\ \hline \end{array}$
$\therefore 280.69 + 25.2 + 38= 343.89$
2. Rashid spent \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{35}}.{\mathbf{75}}\] for Maths book and \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{32}}.{\mathbf{60}}\] for Science book. Find the total amount spent by Rashid.
Ans: Add up the sums of price of two books to get the total amount spent.
Total Amount\[ = {\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{35}}.{\mathbf{75}} + {\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{32}}.{\mathbf{60}} = {\text{Rs}}{\text{.}}\;68.35\]
So, the total amount spent by Rashid is \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{.}}\;68.35\].
3. Radhika’s mother has her \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{10}}.{\mathbf{50}}\] and her father gave her \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{15}}.{\mathbf{80}}\] . Find the total amount given to Radhika by the parents.
Ans: Add up the amount given by mother and her father to Radhika to get the total amount given to Radhika by the parents.
Total Amount\[ = {\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{10}}.{\mathbf{50}} + {\text{Rs}}{\text{. }}{\mathbf{15}}.{\mathbf{80}} = {\text{Rs}}{\text{.}}\;26.30\]
So, the total amount given to Radhika by the parents is \[{\text{Rs}}{\text{.}}\;26.30\].
4. Nasreen bought 3 m 20 cm cloth for her shirt and 2 m 5 cm cloth for her trousers. Find the total length of cloth bought by her.
Ans: Add up the length of cloth for shirt and length of cloth for trouser to get the total length of cloth brought by her.
Convert cm into m by dividing values in cm to 100.
Length of cloth for shirt$ = 3\;{\text{m}}\;20\;{\text{cm}} = 3 + \dfrac{{20}}{{100}}{\text{m = 3}}{\text{.2 m}}$
Length of cloth for trouser$ = 2\;{\text{m}}\;5\;{\text{cm}} = 2 + \dfrac{5}{{100}}{\text{m = 2}}{\text{.05 m}}$
Total length of cloth\[ = {\text{3}}{\text{.2 m}} + 2.05{\text{ m}} = 5.{\text{25 m}}\]
So, total length of cloth brought by Nasreen is \[5.{\text{25 m}}\]
5. Naresh walked 2 km 35 m in the morning and 1 km 7 m in the evening. How much distance did he walk in all?
Ans: Add up the distance walked in morning and distance walked in evening to get the total distance walked by him.
Convert m into km by dividing values in m to 1000.
Distance Travelled by Naresh in Morning\[ = 2\;{\text{km}}\;35\;{\text{m}} = 2 + \dfrac{{35}}{{1000}}{\text{km = 2}}{\text{.035 km}}\]
Distance Travelled by Naresh in Evening\[ = 1\;{\text{km}}\;7\;{\text{m}} = 1 + \dfrac{7}{{1000}}{\text{km = 1}}{\text{.007 km}}\]
Total distance walked by him\[ = {\text{2}}{\text{.035 km}} + {\text{1}}{\text{.007 km}} = 3.{\text{042 km}}\]
So, total distance walked by Naresh is \[3.{\text{042 km}}\]
6. Sunita travelled 15 km 268 m by bus, 7 km 7 m by car and 500 m by foot in order to reach her school. How far is her school from her residence?
Ans: Add up the distance travelled by bus, car and foot in morning and distance walked in evening to get the total distance walked by him.
Convert m into km by dividing values in m to 1000.
Distance Travelled by Sunita by bus\[ = \;15\;{\text{km}}\;268\;{\text{m}} = 15 + \dfrac{{268}}{{1000}}{\text{km = 15}}{\text{.268 km}}\]
Distance Travelled by Sunita by car\[ = \;7\;{\text{km}}\;7\;{\text{m}} = 7 + \dfrac{7}{{1000}}{\text{km = 7}}{\text{.007 km}}\]
Distance Travelled by Sunita by foot\[ = \;500\;{\text{m}} = \dfrac{{500}}{{1000}}{\text{km = 0}}{\text{.5 km}}\]
Total Distance Travelled by Sunita\[ = {\text{15}}{\text{.268 km}} + {\text{7}}{\text{.007 km}} + {\text{0}}{\text{.5 km = 22}}{\text{.775 km}}\]
So, total distance walked by Sunita is \[{\text{22}}{\text{.775 km}}\]
7. Ravi purchases 5 kg 400 g rice, 2 kg 20 g sugar and 10 kg 850 g flour. Find the total weight of his purchases.
Ans: Add up the weight of rice, weight of sugar and weight of flour to get the total weight purchased by Ravi.
Convert g into kg by dividing values in g to 1000.
Weight of Rice\[ = \;5\;{\text{kg}}\;400\;{\text{g}} = 5 + \dfrac{{400}}{{1000}}{\text{kg = 5}}{\text{.4 kg}}\]
Weight of Sugar\[ = \;2\;{\text{kg}}\;20\;{\text{g}} = 2 + \dfrac{{20}}{{1000}}{\text{kg = 2}}{\text{.02 kg}}\]
Weight of Flour\[ = \;10\;{\text{kg}}\;850\;{\text{g}} = 10 + \dfrac{{850}}{{1000}}{\text{kg = 10}}{\text{.85 kg}}\]
Total weight purchased by Ravi\[ = {\text{5}}{\text{.4 kg}} + 2.{\text{02 kg}} + 10.{\text{85 kg = 18}}{\text{.270 kg}}\]
So, total weight purchased by Ravi is \[{\text{18}}{\text{.270 kg}}\]
