(e)            (f)                  (g)                 (h)       (i)           (j)       (k)

As we know when we divide a number by 10, the result is that number with a decimal after one digit,(we count the digit from right to left).

So Keeping that in mind,

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)

(g)

(h)

(i)

(j)

As we know

1 cm = 10 mm

1 mm = 0.1 cm

So,

(a) 2 mm

(b) 30 mm

Question:Write each of the following as decimals.

(a)        (b)     (c)
(d)                (e)

Writing the number in a decimal form:

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(a)      (b)      (c)      (d)      (e)      (f)

As we know After decimal, we call one digit at a time.

(a)    = Zero point zero three

(b)     = One point two zero

(c)   = One hundred eight point five six

(d)   = Ten point zero seven

(e)   = Zero point zero three two

(f)    = Five point zero zero eight.

(a)      (b)      (c)      (d)      (e)      (f)

Here, we have a zoomed version of the number line in which the interval between two number is 0.1 instead of 1 which we use normally. So,

(a)  lies between 0.0 and 0.1

(b)   lies between 0.4 and 0.5

(c)    lies between 0.1 and 0.2

(d)   lies between 0.6 and 0.7

(e)   lies between 0.9 and 1.0

(f)  lies between 0.5 and 0.6.

Question:7 Write as fractions in lowest terms.

(a)      (b)      (c)      (d)      (e)      (f)      (g)

The Numbers in the lowest form of the fraction are:

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

(f)

(g)

## CBSE NCERT solutions for class 6 maths chapter 8 decimals-Exercise: 8.3

(g) or      (h) or     (i) or      (j) or

We compare Decimals just like the way we compare normal numbers. First, we see the leftmost digit of the numbers and if they are same then we move toward the right digits. So,

(a) or

0.4 is greater as while number part (the number before the decimal) is the same.

(b) or

0.07 is greater

(c)  or

3 is greater as the whole part of the numbers are 3 and 0.so obviously 3 is greater than 0.

(d)  or

0.5 is greater

(e)   or

1.23 is greater

(f) or

0.19 is greater

(g) or

As we know that after the decimal, we can add as many zeros as we want in the rightmost to the numbers just like we can add zeroes to the left side of any whole number. this we can do because those zeroes do not carry any value so they don't affect the numbers.

So.

They both are the same number.

(h) or

1.490 is greater

(i) or

As we know in decimal the RIGHTMOST zeros don't carry any value.so,

They both are the same number

(j) or

5.64 is greater.

we can take any two number from the number line and compare them. For example,

1)  9.9 > 3.3

2) 6.6 < 9.9

3) 3.6 > 3.3

4) 9.6 < 9.9

5) 6.9 > 3.9

Amount spend on maths book =  Rs

Amount spend on science book =  Rs

Total amount spend = Rs    Rs

=   Rs

Hence the total amount spends by Rashid is Rs 68.35.

The amount Radhika got from mother = Rs

The amount Radhika got from father = Rs

Total amount Radhika have = Rs      Rs

=  Rs

Hence the total amount of money Radhika got from her parents is Rs 26.30.

Length of cloth for shirt =  3 m 20 cm

Length of cloth for trouser =  2 m 5 cm

As we know.

For adding two numbers their unit must be the same.

So making length in meter:

and

Now,

Total Length of the cloth = 3.2 m + 2.05 m

=  5.25 m

Hence Nasreen bought clothe with a length of 5.25 m.

The distance covered in the morning  = 2 km 35 m

The distance covered in the evening = 1 km 7 m

As we know.

For adding two numbers their unit must be the same.

So Lengths in the Kilometer :

And

Now,

Total Distance covered by Naresh = 2.035 km + 1.007 km

= 3.042 km

Hence the distance covered by Naresh is 3.042 km.

The distance travelled by bus = 15 km 268 m

The distance travelled by car = 7 km 7 m

The distance travelled by foot = 500 m

As we know.

For adding two numbers their unit must be the same.

So,

Also

And,

So,

The total distance Sunita traveled = 15.268 km + 7.007 km + 0.5 km

= 22.775 km

Hence the distance between Sunita's residence and school is 22.775 km.

amount of rice purchased by Ravi = 5 kg 400 g.

amount of sugar purchased by Ravi = 2 kg 20 g.

amount of flour purchased by Ravi = 10 kg 850 g.

As we know.

For adding two numbers their unit must be the same.

So,

Also,

And,

So,

The total weight of the grain Ravi purchased = 5.4 kg + 2.002 kg + 10.85 kg

= 18.270 kg

Hence Ravi purchased total grain having the weight of 18.270 kg.

Total money Raju gave to shopkeeper = Rs 50

The price of the book = Rs 35.65

Money shopkeeper will return Raju = Rs 50.00 - Rs 35.65

= Rs 14.35

Hence Raju got 14.35 Rs from the shopkeeper.

Total Money Rani had = Rs 18.50

The money she spent on ice-cream = 11.75

The Remaining money Rani have = Rs 18.50 - Rs 11.75

= Rs 6.75

Hence Rani has 6.75 Rs now.

Length of cloth initially = 20 m 5 cm = 20.05 m

Length of cloth Tina cuts = 4 m 50 cm = 4.50 m

The length of remaining cloth = 20.05 m - 4.50 m

=  15.55 m

= 15 m 55 cm

Hence the length of remaining cloth Tina have is 15 m 55 cm.

Total distance travelled by Namita = 20 km 50 m = 20.05 km

The distance travelled by bus = 10 km 200 m = 10.20 km

The remaining distance which is traveled by auto = 20.05 km - 10.20 km

= 9.850 km.

Hence the distance travelled by Namita in auto is 9.850 km.

Total weight of the vegetables = 10 kg

weight of onion = 3 kg 500 g = 3.5 kg

weight of tomato = 2 kg 75 g = 2.075 kg

Total weight of onion and potato = 3.5 kg + 2.075 kg

= 5.575 kg

So, The rest weight of potato = 10 kg - 5.575 kg

= 4.425 kg

Hence, the weight of the potato is 4.425 kg.
