10. Tina had 20 m 5 cm long cloth. She cuts 4 m 50 cm length of cloth from this for making a curtain. How much cloth is left with her?

Solution:

Length of cloth Tina had = 20 m 5 cm = 20.05 m

Length of cloth cut to make curtain = 4m 50 cm = 4.50 m

So the length of cloth left with her = Length of cloth Tina had – Length of cloth cut to make curtain

By substituting values

The length of cloth left with her = 20.05 – 4.50 = 15.55 m

Hence, the length of cloth left with Tina is 15.55 m.

11. Vineeta bought a book for Rs 18.90, a pen for Rs 8.50 and some papers for Rs 5.05. She gave fifty rupee to the shopkeeper. How much balance did she get back?

Solution:

Cost of book = Rs 18.90

Cost of pen = Rs 8.50

Cost of papers = Rs 5.05

So the total cost = 18.90 + 8.50 + 5.05 = Rs 32.45

Amount given to the shopkeeper = Rs 50

So the balance returned back = 50 – 32.45 = Rs 17.55

Hence, the shopkeeper returned back Rs 17.55.

12. Tanuj walked 8.62 km on Monday, 7.05 km on Tuesday and some distance on Wednesday. If he walked 21.01 km in three days, how much distance did he walk on Wednesday?

Solution:

Distance walked by Tanuj on Monday = 8.62 km

Distance walked by Tanuj on Tuesday = 7.05 km

Consider x km as the distance walked by Tanuj on Wednesday

It can be written as

Total distance = Distance walked by Tanuj on Monday + Distance walked by Tanuj on Tuesday + Distance walked by Tanuj on Wednesday

By substituting the values

21.01 = 8.62 + 7.05 + x

On further calculation

x = 21.01 – 8.62 – 7.05

So we get

x = 5.34 km

Hence, the distance walked by Tanuj on Wednesday is 5.34 km.
