###### Question 7.Find:

(a) {tex}\frac{1}{2}{/tex} of (i) {tex}2\frac{3}{4}{/tex} (ii) {tex}4\frac{2}{9}{/tex}

(b) {tex}\frac{5}{8}{/tex} of (i) {tex}3\frac{5}{6}{/tex} (ii) {tex}9\frac{2}{3}{/tex}

Given: Total quantity of water in bottle = 5 litres

(i) Vidya consumed = {tex}\frac{2}{5}{/tex} of 5 litres = {tex}\frac{2}{5} \times 5{/tex} = 2 litres

Thus, Vidya drank 2 litres water from the bottle.

(ii) Pratap consumed = {tex}\left( {1 – \frac{2}{5}} \right){/tex} part of bottle

= {tex}\frac{{5 – 2}}{5} = \frac{3}{5}{/tex} part of bottle

Pratap consumed {tex}\frac{3}{5}{/tex} of 5 litres water = {tex}\frac{3}{5} \times 5{/tex} = 3 litres

Thus, Pratap drank {tex}\frac{3}{5}{/tex} part of the total quantity of water.

###### Question 8. Vidya and Pratap went for a picnic. Their mother gave them a water bottle that contained 5 litres of water. Vidya consumed {tex}\frac{2}{5}{/tex} of the water. Pratap consumed the remaining water.

(i)How much water did Vidya drink?

(ii)What fraction of the total quantity of water did Pratap drink?

Given: Total quantity of water in bottle = 5 litres

(i) Vidya consumed = {tex}\frac{2}{5}{/tex} of 5 litres = {tex}\frac{2}{5} \times 5{/tex} = 2 litres

Thus, Vidya drank 2 litres water from the bottle.

(ii) Pratap consumed = {tex}\left( {1 – \frac{2}{5}} \right){/tex} part of bottle

= {tex}\frac{{5 – 2}}{5} = \frac{3}{5}{/tex} part of bottle

Pratap consumed {tex}\frac{3}{5}{/tex} of 5 litres water = {tex}\frac{3}{5} \times 5{/tex} = 3 litres

Thus, Pratap drank {tex}\frac{3}{5}{/tex} part of the total quantity of water.
