4 hours   Rs.60

8 hours   Rs.100

12 hours   Rs.140

24 hours   Rs.180

Check if the parking charges are in direct proportion to the parking time.

Ans.  Charges per hour:

= Rs.15

= Rs.12.50

= Rs.11.67

= Rs.7.50

Here, the charges per hour are not same, i.e.,

Therefore, the parking charges are not in direct proportion to the parking time.

###### 5. A photograph of a bacteria enlarged 50,000 times attains a length of 5 cm as shown in the diagram. What is the actual length of the bacteria? If the photograph is enlarged 20,000 times only, what would be its enlarged length?

Ans. Let enlarged length of bacteria be .

Actual length of bacteria

=  cm =  cm

Here length and enlarged length of bacteria are in direct proportion.

= 2 cm

Hence the enlarged length of bacteria

is 2 cm.

###### 9. A 5 m 60 cm high vertical pole casts a shadow 3 m 20 cm long. Find at the same time (i) the length of the shadow cast by another pole 10 m 50 cm high (ii) the height of a pole which casts a shadow 5 m long.

Ans. Here height of the pole and length of the shadow are in direct proportion.

And 1 m = 100 cm

5 m 60 cm = 5  100 + 60 = 560 cm

3 m 20 cm = 3  100 + 20 = 320 cm

10 m 50 cm = 10  100 + 50 = 1050 cm

5 m = 5  100 = 500 cm

(i) Let the length of the shadow of another pole be

= 600 cm = 6 m

Hence length of the shadow of another pole is 6 m.

(ii) Let the height of the pole be

= 875 cm = 8 m 75 cm

Hence height of the pole is 8 m 75 cm.

Ans. Let distance covered in 5 hours be km.

1 hour = 60 minutes

5 hours = 5  60 = 300 minutes

Here distance covered and time in direct proportion.

= 168 km
