Solved Examples 

1. The shirt cost Rs300 and a pair of shoes cost Rs700. Rohan buys a shirt and a pair of shoes. How much money does Rohan pay for the shirt and shoes together?

Ans1. Cost of shirt = Rs300 

Cost of pair of shoes = Rs700

Total cost of the shirt and a pair of shoes = Cost of shirt + cost of pair of shoes 

                                                                    = Rs300 + Rs700 

                                                                    = Rs1000

Hence, Rohan would pay an amount of Rs1000 to buy a shirt and a pair of shoes together.

2. Akshay has total money of Rs2000. He buys a chair for Rs 1200 and a table for Rs 700. How much money is left with him?

Ans2. Total Money with Akshay = Rs2000

Cost of chair = Rs1200

Cost of Table = Rs700

Total money spent by Akshay = cost of Chair + cost of Table 

                                                      = Rs1200 + Rs700 

                                                      = Rs1900

Money left with Akshay = Rs2000 - R1900

                                            = Rs100
