(d) 2 : 1

From the chart,

Distribution of protein in the muscles = 1/3

Distribution of protein in the bones = 1/6

Then,

Ratio of distribution of proteins in the muscles to that of proteins in the bones,

= 1/3 : 1/6

= (1/3) × (6/1)

= (1/1) × (2/1)

= 2/1

Distribution of protein in the bones = 1/6

Central angle of the sector representing skin and bones,

= 1/10 + 1/6

= (3 + 5)/30

= 8/30 × 360o

= 96o

Distribution of protein in the skin = 1/10

Distribution of protein in the bones = 1/6

Distribution of protein in the Muscles = 1/3

Central angle of the sector representing skin, muscles and bones,

= 1/10 + 1/6 + 1/3

= (3 + 5 + 10)/30

= 18/30 × 360o

= 216o

Then,

Central angle of the sector representing hormones enzymes and other proteins,

= 360o – 216o

= 144o

Percentage of children who at least spend one hour in playing = 16 + 30 + 34 + 10 + 4

= 94 %

Number of children out of 350 who at least spend one hour in playing = (94/100) × 350

= 0.94 × 350

= 329 children

(b) How many children spend more than 2 hours in playing games?

Solution:-

From the given pie chart,

Percentage of children who spend 2 hours in playing = 34 + 10 + 4

= 48 %

Number of children out of 350 who at least spend one hour in playing = (48/100) × 350

= 0.48 × 350

= 168 children

(c) How many children spend 3 or lesser hours in playing games?

Solution:-

From the given pie chart,

Percentage of children who at least spend one hour in playing = 6 + 16 + 30 + 34

= 86 %

Number of children out of 350 who at least spend one hour in playing = (86/100) × 350

= 0.86 × 350

= 301 children

(d) Which is greater — number of children who spend 2 hours or more per day or number of children who play for less than one hour?

Solution:-

Number of children who spend 2 hours or more per day = 30 + 34 + 10 + 4 = 78%

= (78/100) × 350

= 0.78 × 350

= 273 children

Number of children who play for less than one hour = 6%

= (6/100) × 350

= 0.06 × 350

= 21 children

So, by comparing both it is clear that number of children who spend 2 hours or more per day is greater

85. The pie chart on the right shows the result of a survey

Carried out to find the modes of travel used by the children to go

to school. Study the pie chart and answer the questions that

follow. (a) What is the most common mode of transport?

Solution:-

By observing the given pie chart the most common mode of transport is Bus i.e. its central angle is 120o.

(b) What fraction of children travel by car?

Solution:-

By observing the given pie chart, central angle of the children travel by car is 90o.

Then,

The fraction of children travel by car,

= (90o/360o)

= 9/36 … [divide both numerator and denominator by 9]

= ¼

(c) If 18 children travel by car, how many children took part in the survey?

Solution:-

Let us assume total number of children took part in the survey be y

Number of children travel by car = (¼) of total number of children

18 = ¼ × y

Y = 18 × 4

Y = 72

So, 72 children took part in the survey.

(d) How many children use taxi to travel to school?

Solution:-

Central angle of children use taxi to travel to school = (360o – (120o + 60o + 90o + 60o)

= (360o – 330o)

= 30o

Then,

Out of 72 children number of children use taxi to travel to school = (30o/360o) × 72

= 6

(e) By which two modes of transport are equal number of children travelling?

Solution:-

By observing the given pie chart, cycle and walk are the two modes of transport are equal number of children travelling. Because, central angle of the two modes are same i.e. 60o.

86. A dice is rolled once. What is the probability that the number on top will be

(a) Odd

(b) Greater than 5

(c) A multiple of 3

(d) Less than 1

(e) A factor of 36

(f) A factor of 6

Solution:-

A dice is rolled once, the possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Then,

The probability that the number on top will be

(a) Odd

Odd numbers in the dice are 1, 3, 5

Then,

Probability = total number of odd numbers/ Total number of outcomes

= 3/6 … [divide numerator and denominator by 3]

= ½

(b) Greater than 5

Greater than 5 is 6

Then,

Probability = total number Greater than 5/ Total number of outcomes

= 1/6

(c) A multiple of 3

Multiple of 3 = 3 and 6

Then,

Probability = total number of multiple of 3/ Total number of outcomes

= 2/6 … [divide numerator and denominator by 2]

= 1/3

(d) Less than 1

There is no number is less than 1.

So, probability of less than 1 = 0

(e) A factor of 36

Factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6

Probability = total number of factor of 36/ Total number of outcomes

= 5/6

(f) A factor of 6

Factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6

Probability = total number of factor of 6/ Total number of outcomes

= 4/6 … [divide numerator and denominator by 2]

= 2/3

87. Classify the following statements under appropriate headings.

(c) Sun setting in the evening.

(d) Getting 7 when a die is thrown.

(e) Sun rising from the west.

(f) Winning a racing competition by you.

 Certain to happen Impossible to happen May or may not happen

Solution:-

(a) It is certain to happen. Because, the sum of angles of a triangle as 180o.

(b) It may or may not happen. Because, the result of match is unpredictable.

(c) It is certain to happen. Because, the sun always sets in the evening.

(d) It is impossible to happen. Because, 7 is not an outcome when a dice is thrown.

(e) It is impossible to happen. Because, Sun always rises from the east.

(f) It may or may not happen. Because, the result is unpredictable.

89. Ritwik draws a ball from a bag that contains white and yellow balls. The probability of choosing a white ball is 2/9. If the total number of balls in the bag is 36, find the number of yellow balls.

Solution:-

From the question is given that,

Probability of choosing a white ball is = 2/9

The total number of balls in the bag is = 36

Number of white ball chosen = (2/9) × 36

= 8 white balls

Then, the number of yellow balls = Total balls in bag – number of white balls

= 36 – 8

= 28 yellow balls

90. Look at the histogram below and answer the questions that follow. (a) How many students have height more than or equal to 135 cm but less than 150 cm?

Solution:-

By observing the given histogram,

Students have height more than or equal to 135 cm but less than 150 = 14 + 18 + 10

= 42

(b) Which class interval has the least number of students?

Solution:-

150 – 155 has the least number of students i.e. 4.

(c) What is the class size?

Solution:-

The difference between the upper and lower limit of a class interval is called the

Size of the class interval.

Size = Upper limit – Lower limit

= 130 – 125

= 5

(d) How many students have height less than 140 cm?

Solution:-

By observing the given histogram,

Students have height less than 140 cm = 6 + 8 + 14

= 28

 Brand Number of pair of shoes sold A 130 B 120 C 90 D 40 E 20

Solution:-

From the table,

Total number of pairs of shoes sold = 130 + 120 + 90 + 40 +20

= 400 Central angle of pie chart for each brands,

A = (130/400) × 360o

= 117o

B = (120/400) × 360o

= 108o

C = (90/400) × 360o

97. The following pie chart depicts the expenditure of a state government under different heads. (i) If the total spending is 10 crores, how much money was spent on roads?

Solution:-

Given, total amount spent by state government under different heads = 10 crores

From the given pie chart,

Percentage of money spent on Roads = 10 %

Total money spent on Roads = (10/100) × 100000000

= 1,00,00,000

(ii) How many times is the amount of money spent on education compared to the amount spent on roads?

Solution:-

Given, total amount spent by state government under different heads = 10 crores

From the given pie chart,

Percentage of money spent on Roads = 10 %

Total money spent on Roads = (10/100) × 100000000

= ₹ 1,00,00,000

Percentage of money spent on Education = 25 %

Total money spent on Education = (25/100) × 100000000

= ₹ 2,50,00,000

Then,

= Total money spent on Education/ Total money spent on Roads

= ₹ 2,50,00,000/₹ 1,00,00,000

= ₹ 25/10

∴Money spent on education is 2.5 times of money spent on roads.

(iii) What fraction of the total expenditure is spent on both roads and public welfare together?

Solution:-

Given, total amount spent by state government under different heads = 10 crores

From the given pie chart,

Percentage of money spent on Roads = 10 %

Percentage of money spent on Public Welfare = 20 %

So,

Fraction of the total expenditure is spent on both roads and public welfare together,

= 10% + 20%

= (10/100) + (20/100)

= (1/10) + (2/10)

= (3/10)

(2) Money spent on Food (including eating out) = (20/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 10,000

(3) Money spent on Car Loan and Maintenance = (25/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 12,500

(4) Money spent on Utilities = (10/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 5,000

(5) Money spent on Phone = (5/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 2,500

(6) Money spent on Clothing = (5/100) × 50,000

= Rs. 2,500
