Unitary-method can be used to calculate measurements, etc. The unitary method is used to solve problems if there is variation in the given quantity. In this method, the value of one single unit is calculated first and then the value of the required quantities which can be obtained by arithmetic operations. The formula used to calculate the unitary method is

Value of one unit = [\frac{ \text {Total Value}}{\text{No. of Units}}]

4. The cost of 5 notebooks is 200 Rs. Find:

• Several notebooks can be purchased with 400 Rs.

• Cost of 20 notebooks

Given:

Cost of 5 notebooks= 200

Cost of 1 notebook= [\frac{200}{5}]=40

• The number of notebooks that can be purchased with 40 Rupees= 1

The number of notebooks that can be purchased with 1 Rupee= 1/40

Therefore, the number of notebooks that can be purchased with 400 rupees= 1/40 x 400 =10

• The cost of 1 notebook= 40 Rupees

The cost of 20 notebooks= 40 x 20= 800 Rupees
