Q.5. A taxi driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 litres of petrol on Monday. The next day, he filled the tank with 50 litres of petrol. If the petrol costs ? 44 per litre, how much did he spend in all on petrol?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 Whole Numbers

Petrol quantity filled on Monday = 40 litres
Petrol quantity filled on Tuesday = 50 litres
Total petrol quantity filled = (40 + 50) litre
Cost of petrol per litre = Rs. 44
Total money spent = 44 × (40 + 50)
= 44 × 90
= Rs. 3960

= 5437 × 1000 + 5437 × 1
= 5437000 + 5437
= 5442437
(c) Given 824 × 25
= (800 + 24) × 25
= (800 + 25 – 1) × 25
= 800 × 25 + 25 × 25 – 1 × 25
= 20000 + 625 – 25
= 20000 + 600
= 20600
(d) Given 4275 × 125
= 4275 × (100+20 + 5 )
= 427500 + 85500 + 21375
= 534375
(e) Given 504 × 35
= (500 + 4) × 35
= 500 × 35 + 4 × 35

Q.5 Study the pattern:
1 x 8 + 1= 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
Write the next two steps. Can you say how the pattern works?

NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 2 Whole Numbers

Step I: 123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
Step II: 1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
Working pattern:
(1) x 8 + 1 = 9
(12) x 8 + 2 = (11 + 1) x 8 + 2 = 98
(123) x 8 + 3 = (111 + 11 + 1) x 8 + 3 = 987
(1234) x 8 + 4 = (1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) x 8 + 4 = 9876
(12345) x 8 + 5 = (11111 + 1111 + 111 + 11 + 1) x 8 + 5 = 98765
