**Ex
7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 1.**

Write shaded portion as fraction. Arrange them in
ascending and descending order using correct sign ‘<‘, ‘=’, ‘>’ between
the fractions.(c) Show 2/6, 4/6, 8/6 and 6/6 on the number line. Put appropriate signs between the fractions given.

**Solution:
**(a) Total number of divisions = 8

(i) Number of shaded parts = 3

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 3/8

(ii)
Total number of divisions = 8

Number of shaded parts = 6

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 6/8

(iii)
Total number of divisions = 8

Number of shaded parts = 4

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 4/8

(iv)
Total number of divisions = 8

Number of shaded part = 1

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 1/8

Now the fractions are: 3/8, 6/8, 4/8 and 1/8

These
fractions are with the same denominator.

Number of shaded parts = 8

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 8/9

(ii) Total number of divisions = 9

Number of shaded parts = 4

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 4/9

(iii) Total number of divisions = 9

Number of shaded parts = 3

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 3/9

(iv) Total number of divisions = 9

Number of shaded parts = 6

∴ Fraction of shaded parts = 6/9

∴ Fractions are: 8/9, 4/9, 3/9, 6/9

These
fractions are with the same denominator.

**Ex 7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 2.**

**Ex 7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 6.**

The following fractions represent just three different numbers. Separate
them into three groups of equivalent fractions, by changing each one to its
simplest form.**Solution:**

Now, grouping the above fractions into equivalent fractions, we have

**Ex 7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 7.**

Find answers to the following. Write and indicate
how you solved them.

**Solution:**

By cross-multiplication, we have

5 × 5 = 25 and 4 × 9 = 36

Since 25 ≠ 36

By cross-multiplication, we have

9 × 9 = 81 and 16 × 5 = 80

Since 81 ≠ 80

By cross-multiplication, we have

4 × 20 = 80 and 5 × 16 = 80

Since 80 = 80

By cross-multiplication, we have

1 × 30 = 30 and 4 × 15 = 60

**Ex
7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 8.**

Ila read 25 pages of a book containing 100 pages. Lalita
read 2/5 of the same book. Who
read less?**Solution:
**Ila read 25 pages out of 100 pages.

Comparing 1/4 and 2/5, we have

1 × 5 = 5 and 2 × 4 = 8

Since 5 < 8

∴ 1/4 < 2/5

Hence, Ila read less pages.

**Ex
7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 9.**

Rafiq exercised for 3/6 of an hour, while Rohit exercised for 3/4 of an hour. Who exercised for a longer
time?**Solution:
**Rafiq exercised for 3/6 of an hour.

Rohit exercised for 3/4 of an hour.

Comparing 3/6 and 3/4, we have

3 × 4 = 12 and 3 × 6 = 18

Since 12 < 18

∴ 3/4 > 3/6

Hence, Rohit exercised for a longer time.

**Ex
7.4 Class 6 Maths Question 10.**

In a class A of 25 students, 20 passed with 60% or
more marks; in another class B of 30 students, 24 passed with 60% or more marks.
In which class was a greater fraction of students getting with 60% or more
marks? **Solution:
**In class A, 20 students passed with 60% or more
marks out of 25 students.

∴ Fraction of students getting with 60% or more marks

∴ Fraction of students getting with 60% or more marks

Comparing the two fractions, we have 4/5 = 4/5

Hence, both the class A and B have the same fractions of students getting with 60% or more marks.
