NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals

 

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals: Calculations using decimals are necessary for our daily life. If we went to a shop and asked pencils, the shop keeper told a pencil costs rupees 2.5. If we need 4 pencils how much we have to pay to the shopkeeper? In such situations, we need calculations using decimals. We have to add 2.5 four times which will give 10 as the answer, so we have to pay 10 rupees to the shop keeper. In this NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8, we will study about decimal numbers and the addition and subtraction of decimal numbers. In the above-mentioned problem we are adding (2+2+2+2)+(0.5+0.5+0.5+0.5)= (8)+(2)=10 or in other words we can say that we are multiplying 2.5 with 4. The multiplication of decimal numbers will be studied later in NCERT Solutions. Here we provide the NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals 

We will read 25.458 as twenty-five point four five eight six, not twenty-five point four fifty-eight. The number 2 can be written in decimal form as 2.000, 2.5 as 2.500000000000, which means that zeroes at the end of a decimal number do not matters. In this NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths, we will also study how to convert fractions to decimal and also decimals to fractions.

The main topics of NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals are given below.

8.1 Introduction

8.2 Tenths

8.3 Hundredths

8.4 Comparing Decimals

8.5 Using Decimals

8.5.1 Money

8.5.2 Length

8.5.3 Weight

8.6 Addition of Numbers with Decimals

8.7 Subtraction of Decimals

One of the applications of decimals includes converting a quantity from one unit to other, that is, for example, 1mm=\frac{1}{10}cm=0.1cm here we are converting millimeter to the centimeter. in NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 8 Decimals, we will also come across problems related to the conversion of Paise to rupees, grams to kilograms, meter to centimeter etc. 

For example, we know 1 rupee = 100 paise which means

 1\ paise=\frac{1}{100}rupees=0.01 rupees

Using this we can convert paisa to rupees.

 250\ paise=\frac{250}{100}rupees=2.5rupees

 It is easy to divide a number with multiple of 10. If we are dividing a number with 10 we have to shift one decimal to the left, if we are dividing with 100 we have to shift two decimal point to the left of the number, if with 1000 then we have two shift three decimal point to the left of the number. A few examples are given below.

\\\frac{2563}{10}=256.3\\\frac{2563}{100}=25.63\\\frac{2563}{1000}=2.563
