Solution:
Total amount a person had = ₹ 1000000
The amount he spent on a colour T.V. = ₹ 16580
The amount he spent on a motorcycle = ₹ 45890
The amount he spent on a flat = ₹ 870000
∴ Total amount he spent = ₹ (16580 + 45890 + 870000) = ₹ 932470
Thus, the amount left with him = ₹ 1000000 – ₹ 932470 = ₹ 67530

Solution:
Chinmay had total amount = ₹ 610000
The amount he gave to Jyoti = ₹ 87500
The amount he gave to Javed = ₹ 126380
The amount he gave to John = ₹ 350009
Total amount given by Chinmay = ₹ (87500 + 126380 + 350000) = ₹ 563880
Thus, the amount left with him
= ₹ 610000 – ₹ 563880 = ₹ 46120

Question 173.
How many grams should be added to 2 kg 300 g to make it 5 kg 68 g?
Solution:
5 kg 68 g = (5 × 1000 + 68) g = 5068 g and 2 kg 300 g = (2 × 1000 + 300) g = 2300 g
∴ The required number of grams should be added = 5068 g – 2300 g = 2768 g or 2 kg 768 g

Question 174.
A box contains 50 packets of biscuits each weighing 120 g. How many such boxes can be loaded in a van which cannot carry beyond 900 kg?
Solution:
The total weight of a box containing 50 packets of biscuits each weighing 120 g
= 50 × 120 g = 6000 g
The capacity of a van = 900 kg = 900 × 1000 g = 900000 g
∴ The required number of boxes = 900000 + 6000 = 150
Therefore, 150 boxes can be loaded in the van.

∴ Quantity of medicine in 12 capsules or 1 strip = (500 × 12) mg = 6000 mg = 6 g
Quantity of medicine in 5 strips or 1 box = (6 × 5) g = 30 g
Quantity of medicine in 32 boxes = (30 × 32)g = 960 g

Question 190.
A merchant has 120 litres of oil of one kind, 180 litres of another kind and 240 litres of a third kind. He wants to sell the oil by filling the three kinds of oil in tins of equal capacity. What should be the greatest capacity of such a tin? .
Solution:
A merchant has 3 kinds of oil with different quantities like 120 litres, 180 litres and 240 litres.
Since, he wants to sell the oil by filling the three kinds of oil in tins of equal capacity, so the greatest capacity of such a tin is the HCF of 120,180 and 240. Now 120 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5
180 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5
240 = 2  × 2  × 2 × 2 × 3 × 4
∴ The required greatest capacity of a tin = (2 × 2 × 3 × 5) litres = 60 litres

Question 191.
Find a 4-digit odd number using each of the digits 1, 2,4 and 5 only once such that when the first and the last digits are interchanged, it is divisible by 4.
Solution:
By using the digits 1, 2, 4 and 5 only once, we get a 4 digit odd number 4521.
When we interchanged its first and last digits we get a new number, i.e., 1524 which is divisible by 4.
Thus, the required number is 4521.

Question 192.

Solution:
By using the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 only once, the smallest 4-digit number which is divisible by 4 is 1324.

Question 193.
Fatima wants to mail three parcels to three village schools. She finds that the postal charges are ? 20, ? 28 and ? 36, respectively. If she wants to buy stamps only of one denomination, what is the greatest denomination of stamps she must buy to mail the three parcels?
EHffll The postal charges to mail three parcels are  ₹ 20, ₹ 28 and ₹ 36 respectively.
Also, Fatima wants to buy stamps only of one denomination.
So, to find the greatest denomination of stamps, we find the HCF of 20, 28 and 36. Now 20 = 2 × 2 ×5
28 = 2 × 2 × 7
36 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3
∴ The HCF of 20, 28 and 36 is 2 × 2 = 4
So, ₹ 4 is the greatest denomination of stamps, she must buy to mail the three parcels.

Question 194.
Three brands A, B and C of biscuits are available in packets of 12, 15 and 21 biscuits respectively. If a shopkeeper wants to buy an equal number of biscuits, of each brand, what is the minimum number of packets of each brand, he should buy?
Solution:
A shopkeeper has three brands A, B and C of biscuits are available in packets of 12, 15 and 21 biscuits respectively.
Also, a shopkeeper wants to buy equal number of biscuits of each brand for that we need to find the LCM of 12, 15 and 21. ∴ The LCM of 12,15 and 21 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7 = 420 Thus, the required number of packets of 420 Question 195.
The floor of a room is 8 m 96 cm long and 6 m 72 cm broad. Find the minimum number of square tiles of the same size needed to cover the entire floor.
Solution:
Length of floor of a room = 8 m 96 cm = 896 cm
Breadth of floor of the room = 6 m 72 cm = 672 cm
To find the minimum number of square tiles of same size needed to cover the entire floor, we find the LCM of 896 cm and 672 cm. ∴ LCM of 672 and 896 is 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 7 = 2688 Question 196.
In a school library, there are 780 books of English and 364 books of Science. Ms. Yakang, the librarian of the school wants to store these books in shelves such that each shelf should have the same number of books of each subject. What should be the minimum number of books in each shelf?
Solution:
Number of books of English = 780
Number of books of Science = 364 780 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 13
364 = 2 × 2 × 7 × 13
∴  The HCF of 780 and 364 = 2 × 2 × 13 = 52
Thus, the minimum number of books in each shelf = 52

Question 197 .
In a colony of 100 blocks of flats numbering 1 to 100, a school van stops at every sixth block while a school bus stops at every tenth block. On which stops will both of them stop if they start from the entrance of the colony?
Solution:
There are 100 blocks in a colony numbering 1 to 100.
A school van stops at every sixth block and a school bus stops at every tenth block.
We have to find the common stops at which they both stop if they start from a same entrance.
∴  We need to find the LCM of 6 and 10 The LCM of 6 and 10 is 2 × 3 × 5 = 30. Firstly both will stop at 30th block, then aL 60th block and lastly at 90th block.

Question 198.
Test the divisibility of following numbers by 11
(a) 5335
(b) 9020814
Solution:
(a) We have the difference between the sum of digits at odd places (from the right) and the sum of digits at even places (from the right) of a number 5335 is (5 + 3) – (3 + 5) = 8 – 8 = 0, which is divisible by 11.
∴ 5335 is divisible by 11.
(b) We have the difference between the sum of digits at odd places (from the right) and the sum of digits at even places (from the right) of the number 9020814 is
(4 + 8 + 2 + 9) – (1 + 0 + 0) = 23 – 1 = 22, which is divisible by 11.
∴ 9020814 is divisible by 11.

Question 199.
Using divisibility tests, determine which of the following numbers are divisible by 4?
(a) 4096
(b) 21084
(c) 31795012
Solution:
(a) We have, 4096
Since, the last two digits 96 is divisible by 4.
∴ 4096 must be divisible by 4.
(b) We have, 21084
Since, the last two digits 84 is divisible by 4.
∴ 21084 must be divisible by 4.
(c) We have, 31795012
Since, the last two digits 12 is divisible by 4.
∴ 31795012 must be divisible by 4.

Question 200.
Using divisibility test determine which of the following numbers are divisible by 9?
(a) 672
(b) 5652
Solution:
(a) We have, 672
Since, the sum of all the digits of 672 is 15, which is not divisible by 9.
∴ 672 is not divisible by 9.
(b) We have, 5652
Since, the sum of all the digits of 5652 is 18, which is divisible by 9.
∴ 5652 must be divisible by 9.
