Question: 17

Each child is to be given 1 orange, 1 banana and 5 biscuits. All the children take oranges and biscuits but 38 children do not take bananas. How many oranges, biscuits and bananas are distributed?

Answer: Total number of students going to a trip = 210

Each students was given 1 orange, 1 banana and 5 biscuits.

Hence, total number of oranges distributed to 210 students = 1 × 210 = 210

Since, 38 students refused to take bananas. Then total number of students who took bananas = 210 – 38

= 172

Therefore, total number of bananas distributed to 210 students = 210 × 5

= 1050

Thus, 210 oranges, 172 bananas and 1050 biscuits were distributed among all the students going to the trip

Total number of toffees = number of toffees I gave to my 4 friends + Number of toffees left with me

= 4 × 4 + 3

= 16 + 3

= 19 toffees

Therefore total number of toffees I have = 19 toffees.

Question: 24

Indra and Bhanu first went in the motor – boat, and then took the oar – boat.

How much did they pay for both the boats? Rs ________

How much time did they get for both rides? __________

Answer: Total money Indra and Bhanu paid for the motor boat = Rs 25 + Rs 25 = 50

One bus can carry 48 children. How many children can three buses carry? About –

(a) 100

(b) 200

(c) 150

Answer: Number of children in a bus = 48 children

(d) 401 and 91

Answer: Let us add the pairs to check the pair that has the sum greater than 500

152 + 241 = 393

321 + 192 = 513

99 + 299 = 398

401 + 91 = 492

Therefore, 321 + 192 gives 513 which is more than 500. So, option (b) is the correct answer.
