Q.1. A book exhibition was held for four days in a school. The number of tickets sold at the counter on the first, second, third and final day was respectively 1094, 1812, 2050 and 2751. Find the total number of tickets sold on all the four days.

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Number of tickets sold on 1st day = 1094
Number of tickets sold on 2nd day = 1812
Number of tickets sold on 3rd day = 2050
Number of tickets sold on 4th day = 2751
Hence, number of tickets sold on all the four days
= 1094 + 1812 + 2050 + 2751 = 7707 tickets

Q.2. Shekhar is a famous cricket player. He has so far scored 6980 runs in test matches. He wishes to complete 10,000 runs. How many more runs does he need?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Price of books sold in June first week = Rs 2,85,891
Price of books sold in June second week = Rs 4,00,768
No. of books sold in both weeks together
= Rs 2,85,891 + Rs 4,00,768 = Rs 6,86,659
The sale of books is the highest in the second week
Difference in the sale in both weeks
= Rs 4,00,768 – Rs 2,85,891 = Rs 1,14,877
$?$ Sale in second week was greater by Rs 1,14,877 than in the first week.

Q.9. To stitch a shirt, 2 m 15 cm cloth is needed. Out of 40 m cloth, how many shirts can be stitched and how much cloth will remain?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Given
Total length of the cloth = 40 m
= 40 × 100 cm = 4000 I’m
Cloth required to stitch one shirt = 2 m 15 cm
= 2 × 100 + 15 cm = 215 cm
Number of shirts that can be stitched out of 4000 cm = $\frac{4000}{215}$ = 18 shirts

Q.10. Medicine is packed in boxes, each weighing 4 kg 500g. How many such boxes can be loaded in a van which cannot carry beyond 800 kg?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Weight of one box = 4 kg 500 g
= 4 × 1000 + 500 = 4500 g
Maximum weight carried by the van
= 800 kg = 800 × 1000 = 800000 g.
Hence, number of boxes that can be loaded in the van =$\frac{800000}{4500}$= 177 boxes

Q.11. The distance between the school and a student’s house is 1 km 875 m. Everyday she walks both ways. Find the total distance covered by her in six days.

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Distance covered between school and house
= 1 km 875 m = 1000 + 875 = 1875 m
Hence, distance travelled by the student in one day = 2 × 1875 = 3750 m
Distance travelled by the student in 6 days
= 3750 m × 6 = 22500 m = 22 km 500 m

Q.1 Estimate each of the following using general rule:
(a) 730 + 998 (b) 796 – 314 (c) 12904 + 2888 (d) 28292 – 21496
Make ten more such examples of addition, subtraction and estimation of their outcome.

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

(a) 730 + 998
Round off to hundreds
730 rounds off to 700
998 rounds off to 1000
Hence, 730 + 998 = 700 + 1000 = 1700
(b) 796 – 314
Round off to hundreds
796 rounds off to 800
314 rounds off to 300
Hence, 796 – 314 = 800 – 300 = 500
(c) 12904 + 2888
Round off to thousands
12904 rounds off to 13000
2888 rounds off to 3000
Hence, 12904 + 2888 = 13000 + 3000 = 16000
(d) 28292 – 21496
Round off to thousands
28292 round off to 28000
21496 round off to 21000
Hence, 28292 – 21496 = 28000 – 21000 = 7000
Ten more such examples are
(i) 540 + 360 = 500 + 400 = 900
(ii) 7657 + 4450 = 8000 + 4000 = 12000
(iii) 9892 – 2372 = 10000 – 2000 = 8000
(iv) 9740 – 2002 = 10000 – 2000 = 8000
(v) 2678 + 1111 = 3000 + 1000 = 4000
(vi) 1110 – 1222 = 1000 – 1000 = 0
(vii) 980 + 525 = 1000 + 500 = 1500
(viii) 7400 + 4300 = 7000 + 4000 = 11000
(ix) 6831 + 2222= 7000 + 2000 = 9000
(x) 9285 + 1119 = 9000 + 1000 = 10000
