Problem 1:

Gita has eight marbles. She gave $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ of them to her younger brother. How many marbles did her brother get?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Gita has marbles = 8

She gave to younger brother = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ of 8

No of marbles her brother got = $$\frac { 1*8 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 2 }{ 1 }$$

= 2

Therefore, her brother got 2 marbles

Thus, the final solution is 2 marbles

Problem 2:

Mr. Gupta puts 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ litres of petrol in his car. If he uses $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ of it. How many litres of petrol did he use?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Mr. Gupta puts = 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ litres of petrol

He used = $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ of 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

$$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 13 }{ 4 }$$

$$\frac { 1*13 }{ 3*4 }$$

3$$\frac { 13 }{ 12 }$$

1$$\frac { 1 }{ 12 }$$

Therefore, Mr. Gupta used 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 12 }$$ litres of petrol.

Thus, the final solution is 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 12 }$$ litres

Problem 3:

Neha spends 3$$\frac { 3 }{ 5 }$$ hours a day in morning exercises. How many hours does she spend in morning exercises in one week?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Neha spends = $$\frac { 3 }{ 5 }$$ hours/day

Hours she spends in a week = $$\frac { 3 }{ 5 }$$ * 7

$$\frac { 3*7 }{ 5 }$$ $$\frac { 21 }{ 5 }$$

4$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$ hours

Therefore, Neha spends 4$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$ hours in morning exercises.

Thus, the solution is 4$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$ hours

Problem 4:

One plum cake weighs $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ kg. If Mr. Ramesh buys five such cakes, how many kilograms of cakes did he buy?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Weight of one plum cake = $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ kg

No of cakes = 5

Amount of cake he bought = $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ * 5

$$\frac { 3*5 }{ 4 }$$ $$\frac { 15 }{ 4 }$$

Therefore, $$\frac { 15 }{ 4 }$$ kilograms of cake, Mr. Ramesh buy

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 15 }{ 4 }$$

Problem 5:

The cost of one kilogram apples is Rupees 25$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$. What is the cost of 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ kilogram apples?

Solution:

As given in the question,

The cost of one kilogram apple = 25$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

The cost of 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ kilogram apples = 25$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ * 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

$$\frac { 51 }{ 2 }$$ * $$\frac { 3 }{ 2 }$$

$$\frac { 153 }{ 4 }$$

Therefore, $$\frac { 153 }{ 4 }$$ is the price for 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ kilogram apples.

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 153 }{ 4 }$$

Problem 6:

The thickness of the Mathematics book of Class – IV is 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ cm. What will be the thickness of a pile of 16 such books?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Thickness of book = 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

No of books = 16

The thickness of a pile of 16 books = 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ * 16

$$\frac { 5 }{ 4 }$$ * 16

$$\frac { 80 }{ 4 }$$

= 20

Therefore, the thickness of a pile of 16 books is 20cm.

Thus, the final solution is 20cm.

Problem 7:

Milk is sold at Rs 16$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ per litre, find the cost of 6$$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$ litre of milk?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Cost of 1 litre milk = 16$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$

Cost of $$\frac { 32 }{ 5 }$$ litre milk = 16$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 67 }{ 4 }$$

The cost of 6$$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$ is $$\frac { 67 }{ 4 }$$ * $$\frac { 32 }{ 5 }$$

= $$\frac { 67*8 }{ 5 }$$

= $$\frac { 536 }{ 5 }$$

= 107$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$

Therefore, the cost of 6$$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$ litre of milk is 107$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$

Thus, the final solution is 107$$\frac { 1 }{ 5 }$$

Problem 8:

Find the area of the rectangular park which is 41$$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ long and 18$$\frac { 3 }{ 5 }$$ m board?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Length of the rectangular park = 41$$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$

Breadth of the rectangular park = 18$$\frac { 3 }{ 5 }$$

Area of rectangle = length * breadth

= $$\frac { 125 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 93 }{ 5 }$$

= 775 meters

Therefore, the area of the rectangular park is 775 meters

Thus, the final solution is 775 meters.

Problem 9.
If the cost of 5$$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$ litres of milk is 236$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$, find the cost per litre?

Solution:

As given in the question,

The cost of milk = 236$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

No of litres = 5$$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$

Cost of $$\frac { 27 }{ 5 }$$ litres of milk = $$\frac { 945 }{ 4 }$$

Cost of 1 litre of milk = $$\frac { 945%4 }{ 27%5 }$$

= $$\frac { 945 }{ 4 }$$ * $$\frac { 5 }{ 27 }$$

= $$\frac { 35*5 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 175 }{ 4 }$$

= 43$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$

Therefore, the cost per litre = 43$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$

Thus, the final solution is 43$$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$

Problem 10:

Margaret has 2$$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ cups of sugar. She is using 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ cups to make cookies. How much sugar will she have left?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Amount of sugar Margaret has = 2$$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$

No of cups she is using to make cookies = 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

Amount of sugar will she have left = 2$$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ – 1$$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 7 }{ 3 }$$ – $$\frac { 5 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 7 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 4 }{ 4 }$$ – $$\frac { 5 }{ 4 }$$ * $$\frac { 3 }{ 3 }$$

= $$\frac { 28 }{ 12 }$$ – $$\frac { 15 }{ 12 }$$

= $$\frac { 28-15 }{ 12 }$$

= $$\frac { 13 }{ 12 }$$

Therefore, $$\frac { 13 }{ 12 }$$ cups of sugar will she have left.

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 13 }{ 12 }$$

Problem 11:

Russell spent $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ of his allowance to go to movies. He wants to buy a new video game that will cost him another $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ of his allowance. If he buys the game. How much of his allowance will he have spent?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Amount of money Russell spent on movies = $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$

Amount of money Russell spent on new video game = $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

Total amount of money he spent of his allowance = $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

= $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 2 }{ 2 }$$ + $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ * $$\frac { 3 }{ 3 }$$

= $$\frac { 2 }{ 6 }$$ + $$\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$$

= $$\frac { 2+3 }{ 6 }$$

= $$\frac { 5 }{ 6 }$$

Therefore, the total amount of money spent = $$\frac { 5 }{ 6 }$$

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 5 }{ 6 }$$

Problem 12:

Sam has 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 8 }$$ acres of land. He planted potatoes on 2$$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$ of the land. He wants to plant corn. How much land does he have left to plant the corn?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Acres of land Sam has = 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 8 }$$

Acres of land he planted potatoes = 2$$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$

Amount of land left to plant the corn = 3$$\frac { 1 }{ 8 }$$ – 2$$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$

= $$\frac { 25 }{ 8 }$$ – $$\frac { 8 }{ 3 }$$

= $$\frac { 25 }{ 8 }$$ * $$\frac { 3 }{ 3 }$$ – $$\frac { 8 }{ 3 }$$ * $$\frac { 8 }{ 8 }$$

= $$\frac { 75 }{ 24 }$$ – $$\frac { 64 }{ 24 }$$

= $$\frac { 75-64 }{ 24 }$$

= $$\frac { 11 }{ 24 }$$

Therefore, $$\frac { 11 }{ 24 }$$ acres of land left to plant the corn.

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 11 }{ 24 }$$

Problem 13:

I bought 80 pounds of spaghetti to share equally between 7 families. About how many pounds of spaghetti will each family receive?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Amount of spaghetti = 80 pounds

No of families = 7

Amount of spaghetti each family receive = $$\frac { 80 }{ 7 }$$

Therefore, $$\frac { 80 }{ 7 }$$ pounds of spaghetti each family will receive.

Problem 14:

I have 70 feet of rope that I need to share equally between 11 people. About how many feet of rope will each person receive?

Solution:

As given in the question,

No of people = 11

Length of the rope = 70 feet

Length of rope each person will receive = $$\frac { 70 }{ 11 }$$

Therefore, each person will receive $$\frac { 70 }{ 11 }$$ feet of rope.

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 70 }{ 11 }$$.

Problem 15:

Mom made pizza. There is only $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ of the pizza left. Mom and her friend Sally are going to share the remaining pizza evenly. How much of pizza will they each get?

Solution:

As given in the question,

Fraction of pizza left = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$

No of people who share the pizza = 2

Amount of pizza each will get = $$\frac { 1%4 }{ 2 }$$

= $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ * $$\frac { 2 }{ 1 }$$

= $$\frac { 2 }{ 4 }$$

= $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

Therefore, each gets $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ of pizza.

Thus, the final solution is $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$
