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

Answer :

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

Q.3. In an election, the successful candidate registered 5,77,500 votes and his nearest rival secured 3,48,700 votes. By what margin did the successful candidate win the election?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Answer :

No. of votes secured by the successful candidate = 5,77,500

Margin = 5,77,500 – 3,48,700 = 2,28,800 votes

Q.4. Kirti bookstore sold books worth Rs 2,85,891 in the first week of June and books worth Rs 4,00,768 in the second week of the month. How much was the sale for the two weeks together? In which week was the sale greater and by how much?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Answer :

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

\(\therefore \) Sale in second week was greater by Rs 1,14,877 than in the first week.

Q.7. A merchant had Rs 78,592 with her. She placed an order for purchasing 40 radio sets at Rs 1200 each. How much money will remain with her after the purchase?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Answer :

Total money the merchant had = Rs 78592

Number of radio sets she placed an order for purchasing = 40 radio sets

Cost of each radio set = Rs 1200

So, cost of 40 radio sets = Rs 1200 × 40 = Rs 48000

Money left with the merchant = Rs 78592 – Rs 48000 = Rs 30592

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

Answer :

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

Answer :

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

Answer :

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.12. A vessel has 4 litres and 500 ml of curd. In how many glasses, each of 25 ml capacity, can it be filled?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers

Answer :

Quantity of curd in the vessel

= 4 l 500 ml = 4 × 1000 + 500 = 4500 ml

Capacity of 1 glass = 25 ml

\(\therefore \)Number of glasses that can be filled with curd = \(\ftac{4500}{25} \) = 180 glasses

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

Answer :

(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
