Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 6.

A piece of wire 7/8 metre long broke into two pieces. One piece was 1/4 metre long. How long is the other piece?

Solution:
Total length of the wire = 7/8 metre
Length of one piece of the wire = 1/4 metre
Length of the other piece of wire = 7/8 – 1/4
LCM of 8 and 4 = 8

= (7 – 2)/8 = 5/8
Hence, the length of the other piece of wire is 5/8 metre.

Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 7.

Nandini’s house is 9/10 km from her school. She walked some distance and then took a bus for ½ km to reach the school. How far did she walk?

Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 8.

Asha and Samuel have bookshelves of the same size partly filled with books. Asha’s shelf is 5/6 th full and Samuel’s shelf is 2/5 th full. Whose bookshelf is more full? By what fraction?

Solution:
Asha’s shelf is 5/6 th full and Samuel’s shelf is 2/5 th full.
Comparing 5/6 and 2/5.
LCM of 6 and 5 = 30

Hence, Asha’s shelf is full more than Samuel’s shelf.

Hence, Asha’s shelf is full more than Samuel’s shelf by 13/30.

Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 9.

Jaidev takes 21/5 minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes 7/4 minutes to do the same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?

Jaidev takes 21/5 minutes to walk across the school ground.
Rahul takes 7/4 minutes to walk across the school ground.
