**1. Express in paise:**

**(i) Rs 8.40**

**(ii) Rs 0.97**

**(iii) Rs 0.09**

**(iv) Rs 62.35**

**Solution:**

(i) Rs 8.40

= 8.40 Ã— 100 paise [WKT 1Rs = 100 Paise]

= (840 / 100) Ã— 100 Paise

On substituting, we get

= 840 Paise

Therefore, Rs 8.40 = 840 paise

(ii) Rs 0.97

= 0.97 Ã— 100 paise [WKT 1 Rs = 100 Paise]

On calculating, we get

= 97 paise

Therefore, Rs 0.97 = 97 paise

(iii) Rs 0.09

= 0.09 Ã— 100 [WKT 1 Rs = 100 Paise]

We get,

= 9.00 paise

Therefore, Rs 0.09 = 9.00 paise

(iv) Rs 62.35

= 62.35 Ã— 100 paise [WKT 1 Rs = 100 Paise]

= (6235 / 100) Ã— 100 paise

We get

= 6235 paise

Therefore, Rs 62.35 = 6235 paise

**2. Express in rupees:**

= 55 / 100

We get,

= Rs 0.55

Hence, the expression for 55 P in the form of rupees is Rs 0.55

(ii) 8 P

We know that,

1 P = 1 / 100 Rs

= 8 / 100

We get,

= Rs 0.08

Hence, the expression for 8 P in the form of rupees is Rs 0.08

(iii) 695 P

We know that,

1 P = 1 / 100 Rs

= 695 / 100

We get,

= Rs 6.95

Hence, the expression for 695 P in the form of rupees is Rs 6.95

(iv) 3279 P

We know that,

1 P = 1 / 100 Rs

= 3279 / 100

We get,

= Rs 32.79

Hence, the expression for 3279 P in the form of rupees is Rs 32.79

5.37

12.00 +

__________

Rs 17.37

__________

âˆ´ Rs 5.37 + Rs 12 = Rs 17.37

(ii) Rs 24.03 and 532 paise

= Rs 24.03 + 532 / 100

(Since, 1 Rs = 100 paise)

= Rs (24.03 + 5.32)

= Rs 29.35

âˆ´ Rs 24.03 + 532 paise = Rs 29.35

(iii) 73 paise and Rs 2.08

= 73 + 2.08 Ã— 100

Since, 100 paise = Rs 1

= 73 + 208

= 281 paise

Now, 281 / 100 = Rs 2.81

âˆ´ 73 paise + Rs 2.08 = Rs 2.81

(iv) 8 paise and Rs 15.36

= 8 + 15.36 Ã— 100

Since, 100 paise = Rs 1

= 8 + 1536

= 1544 paise

Now, 1544 / 100 = Rs 15.44

âˆ´ 8 paise and Rs 15.36 = Rs 15.44

**8. Subtract:**

= 2.717 kg

âˆ´ The addition of 778 gm and 1.939 kg is 2.717 kg

(iii) 0.065kg + 4023 gm

= 0.065 Ã— 1000 gm + 4023 gm

We get,

= 65 gm + 4023 gm

= 4088 gm

Now, converting into kilogram, we get

= 4088 / 1000

= 4.088kg

âˆ´ The addition of 0.065 kg and 4023 gm is 4.088 kg

**12. Subtract (giving answer in kg):**

Converting the decimals into like decimals

We get,

= 15.600 kg â€“ 9.462 kg

= 6.138 kg

âˆ´ The subtraction of 9.462 kg from 15.6 kg is 6.138 kg

(ii) 4317 gm from 23 kg

= 23 kg â€“ 4317 gm

Converting the 4317gm into kg, we get

= 23 kg â€“ 4317 / 1000 kg

= 23 kg â€“ 4.317 kg

Converting into like decimals, we get

= 23.000 kg â€“ 4.317 kg

= 18.683 kg

âˆ´ The subtraction of 4317 gm from 23 kg is 18.683 kg

(iii) 0.798 kg from 4169 gm

Converting the 4169 gm into kg, we get

4169 / 1000 kg â€“ 0.798 kg

= 4.169 kg â€“ 0.798 kg

= 3.371kg

âˆ´ The subtraction of 0.798 kg from 4169 gm is 3.371 kg
