Solved Examples

Question 1: Write the place value of 4,

Given, 8,345,632

=> Place value of 4 = 40,000.


Question 2: Solve 5234.34 + 345.6 + 786.03
     5 2 3 4 . 3 4
+  0  3 4 5 . 6 0
    0  7 8 6 . 0 3
     6 3 6 5 . 9 7

Question 3: Find the area and perimeter of circle having radius 2 m.

Radius of the circle (r) = 2

Area = $\pi$ r2

Circumference = 2 $\pi$ r

=> Area of circle = $\pi \times 2 \times 2$

= 4 $\pi$

and Circumference of the circle = 2 $\times \pi \times$ 2

= 4 $\pi$

=> Area of circle = 4 $\pi$ square mtr

and Circumference of the circle = 4 $\pi$ mtr


Question 4: Solve the equation for x, 32x - 46 = 12x + 20

Given, 32x - 46 = 12x + 20

32x - 46 = 12x + 20

=> 32x - 12x = 20 + 46

=> (32 - 12)x = 66

=> 20x = 66

=> x = $\frac{66}{20}$

or x = $\frac{33}{10}$

Question 5: Bob drive 1.6 miles to the bakery, 2.6 miles to the store and 6.3 miles to the library. From there he go 0.7 to the Church. How far did he travel?

Distance covered by Bob to bakery = 1.6

Distance covered by Bob to store = 2.6

Distance covered by Bob to library = 6 .3

Distance covered by Bob to the Church = 0.7

=> Total distance he covered = 1.6 + 2.6 + 6.3 + 0.7

= 11.2 miles

Hence Bob  traveled 11.2 miles.
