**Question 9:**

**To stitch a shirt 2 m 15 cm cloth is needed. Out of 40 m cloth, how many**

**shirts can be stitched and how much cloth will remain?**

**Solution**:

First we will convert the units into a common unit, we are converting meter into centimeters.

1 m =100 cm

40 m =4000 cm

Cloth required for 1 shirt = 2 m 15 cm.

Cloth required for 1 shirt = 215 cm.

Now, number of shirts that can be stitched is 4000 ÷ 215

So, 18 shirts can be stitched from the given cloth and 130 cm of cloth will be left out.

**Question 10:**

**Medicine is packed in boxes, each weighing 4 kg 500 g. How many such**

**boxes can be loaded in a van which cannot carry beyond 800 kg?**

**Solution**:

We will convert the given data in a particular unit,

1 kg =1000 grams

4 kg =4000 grams

4 kg 500 grams= 4500 grams

800 kg =800000 grams

Now, we know a box weighs 4500 grams so number of boxes that can come in a van that can hold only 800000 grams, 800000 ÷ 4500,

So, 177 boxes can be loaded in the van.

**Question 11:**

**The distance between the school and the house of a student’s house is 1 km ****875 m. Every day she walks both ways. Find the total distance covered by ****her in six days.**

**Solution**:

We will convert the given data in a particular unit,

1 km =1000 m

1 km 875 m =1875 m

Now, the girl daily goes to school and comes back from the school so the total distance covered by the girl in a day,

The distance covered in a day by the girl is 3750 m. Now calculating the distance travelled by the girl in 6 days,

The distance travelled by the girl in 6 days is 22500 m.

**Question 12:**

**A vessel has 4 liters and 500 ml of curd. In how many glasses each of 25 ml**

**capacity, can it be filled?**

**Solution**:

We will convert the given data in a particular unit,

1 liter= 1000 ml

4 liters= 4000 ml

4 liters 500 ml=4500 ml

The capacity of glasses is 25 ml, so the number of glasses is,

180 glasses of 25 ml can be filled.
