vi) \(2\frac{2}{3}+3\frac{1}{2} \)

vii) \(8\frac{1}{2}-3\frac{5}{8} \)

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i) \( 2- \frac{3}{5} = \frac{2×5-3}{5}= \frac{7}{5} = 1\frac{2}{5} \)

ii) \(4 + \frac{7}{8} = \frac{8×4+7}{8}= \frac{39}{8}=4\frac{7}{8} \)

iii) \(\frac{3}{5}+\frac{2}{7} = \frac{7×3+5×2}{35}=\frac{21+10}{35}= \frac{31}{35} \)

iv) \(\frac{9}{11}-\frac{4}{15}=

\frac{15×9-11×4}{165}= \frac{135-44}{165}= \frac{91}{165}\)

v) \(\frac{7}{10}+ \frac{2}{5}+\frac{3}{2} = \frac{7×1+2×2+3×5}{10}=

\frac{7+4+15}{10} =\frac{26}{10} =\frac{26÷2}{10÷2} =\frac{13}{5} =2\frac{3}{5} \)

vi) \( 2\frac{2}{3}+3\frac{1}{2} =

\frac{8}{3}+\frac{7}{2}= \frac{2×8+3×7}{6}= \frac{16+21}{6}=\frac{37}{6}= 6\frac{1}{6} \)

vii) \( 8\frac{1}{2}-3\frac{5}{8} = \frac{17}{2}-\frac{29}{8}= \frac{17×4-29×1}{8}= \frac{68-29}{8} = \frac{39}{8} =4\frac{7}{8} \)

Q.2 Arrange the following in descending order:
(i)\( \frac{2}{9}, \frac{2}{3}, \frac{8}{21} \)

(ii) \(\frac{1}{5} ,\frac{3}{7}, \frac{7}{10} \)

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i)\( \frac{2}{9}, \frac{2}{3}, \frac{8}{21} \)

LCM of 9, 3 ,21 = 63 then

$$ \frac{2}{9}=\frac{2×7}{9×7}=\frac{14}{63} $$
$$ \frac{2}{3}=\frac{2×21}{3×21}=\frac{42}{63} $$
$$ \frac{8}{21}=\frac{8×3}{21×3}=\frac{24}{63} $$
Hence \(\frac{42}{63} > \frac{24}{63} > \frac{14}{63} \)

\(\frac{2}{3} > \frac{8}{21} > \frac{2}{9} \)

(ii) \(\frac{1}{5} ,\frac{3}{7}, \frac{7}{10} \)

LCM of 5,7,10 = 70 then

$$ \frac{1}{5}=\frac{1×14}{5×14}=\frac{14}{70} $$
$$ \frac{3}{7}=\frac{3×10}{7×10}=\frac{21}{70} $$
$$ \frac{7}{10}=\frac{7×7}{10×7}=\frac{49}{70} $$
Hence \(\frac{49}{70} > \frac{21}{70} > \frac{14}{70} \)

\(\frac{7}{10} > \frac{3}{7} > \frac{1}{5} \)

Q.3 In a “magic square” the sum of number in each row, in each column and along the diagonals is the same. Is this a magic square?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Along first row = \(\frac{4}{11}+\frac{9}{11}+\frac{2}{11} =\frac{15}{11} \)

Along second row = \(\frac{3}{11}+\frac{5}{11}+\frac{7}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along third row = \(\frac{8}{11}+\frac{1}{11}+\frac{6}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along first column= \(\frac{4}{11}+\frac{3}{11}+\frac{8}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along second column= \(\frac{9}{11}+\frac{5}{11}+\frac{1}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along third column= \(\frac{2}{11}+\frac{7}{11}+\frac{6}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along first diagonal= \(\frac{4}{11}+\frac{5}{11}+\frac{6}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Along second diagonal= \(\frac{2}{11}+\frac{5}{11}+\frac{8}{11}=\frac{15}{11} \)

Since, the sum of all the fraction row wise, column wise and the diagonal wise is same i.e. \(\frac{15}{11} \). Hence, it is a magic square.

Q.4 A rectangular sheet of paper is \(12\frac{1}{2} \) cm long and \(10\frac{2}{3} \)cm wide. Find its perimeter.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Length of sheet = \(12\frac{1}{2} = \frac{25}{2} \)

Breath of sheet =\(10\frac{2}{3} = \frac{32}{3} \)

Perimeter = 2× (length +breath)

$$= 2×[\frac{25}{2}+\frac{32}{3}] $$

= \(2× \frac{75+64}{6}= 2 ×\frac{139}{6} = \frac{139}{3}= 43\frac{1}{3} \)

Q.5 Find the perimeter of (i) triangle ABE (ii) the rectangle BCDE in this figure. Whose perimeter is greater?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i) Perimeter of triangleABE = AB+BE+AE = \(\frac{5}{2}+2\frac{3}{4}+3\frac{3}{5}

=\frac{5}{2}+\frac{11}{4}+\frac{18}{5}

=\frac{50+55+72}{20}=\frac{177}{20}=8\frac{17}{20} \)

(ii) perimeter of BCDE = 2 ×( length +breath)

= \( 2 × [2\frac{3}{4}+\frac{7}{6}]

= 2 × [ \frac{11}{4}+ \frac{7}{6}]

= 2× \frac{33+14}{12} = 2×\frac{47}{12}= \frac{47}{6} = 7\frac{5}{6} \)

Since \(8\frac{17}{20} > 7\frac{5}{6} \)

Thus perimeter of ?ABE is greater than the perimeter of the rectangle BCDE.

Q.6 Salil wants to put a picture in a frame. The picture is \(7\frac{3}{5} \)cm wide. To fit in the frame, the picture cannot be more than \(7\frac{3}{10} \) cm wide. How much should the picture be trimmed?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

From the question, it is given that,

Picture having a width of =\(7\frac{3}{5}= 38/5 \)cm

Frame having a width of \(7\frac{3}{10} = 73/10 \)cm

The picture should be trimmed by = [(38/5) – (73/10)]

= \(\frac{76-73}{10} \)cm = \(\frac{3}{10} \)cm

Hence, the required width to be trimmed =3/10 cm.

Q.7 Ritu ate =\(\frac{3}{5} \)part of an apple and the remaining apple was eaten by her brother Somu. How much part of the apple did Somu eat? Who had the larger share? By how much?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Let the whole apple be 1.

part of apple eaten by Ritu=3/5

Therefore part of apple eaten by her brother Somu

=1 - 3/5 = \(\frac{5-3}{5} \) = 2/5

Since 3/5 >2/5 thus the share of Ritu was larger.

Difference =3/5-2/5 =1/5 part.

Q.8 Michael finished colouring a picture in 7/12 hour. Vaibhav finished colouring the same picture in 3/4 hour. Who worked longer? By what fraction was it longer?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Time taken by Michael = 7/12 hour

Time taken by Vaibhav = 3/4 hour

Multiply by 3 on both nominator and denominator
There fore 3/4 hour =\(\frac{9}{12} \) hour

Therefore 9/12>7/12

Hence time taken by Vaibhav was longer .

Difference = 3/4 - 7/12 = 9/12-7/12 = 2/12=1/6 hour longer

Therefore 1.37 < 1.49 or 1.49 > 1.37

(v) 2.03 or 2.30

Comparing the tenths place, we get 0 < 3br>
Therefore 2.03 < 2.30 or 2.30 > 2.03

(vi)0.8 or 0.88 ? 0.80 or 0.88

Since tenths place is same.

Comparing the hundredth place, we get 0 < 8

Therefore .80 < 0.88 or 0.88 > 0.80

Q.2 Express as rupees using decimals:

(i) 7 paise

(ii) 7 rupees 7 paise

(iii) 77 rupees 77 paise

(iv) 50 paise

(v) 235 paise

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i)7 paise =7/100 rupees = 0.07 rupees

(ii) 7 rupees 7 paise = 7 rupees + 7/100 rupees
= 7.07 rupees

(iii) 77 rupees 77 paise = 77 rupees + 77/100 rupees
= 77.77 rupees

(iv) 50 paise = 50/100 rupees = 0.50 rupees

(v) 235 paise = 235/100 rupees = 2.35 rupees

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i) 1 metre = 100 cm

1 kilometre = 1000 metre = 100 × 1000 cm
= 100000 cm

Therefore 5 cm = 5/100 metre = 0.05 metre

5 cm = 5/100000 km = 0.00005 km

Hence, 5 cm = 0.05 m and 0.00005 km

(ii) 1 cm = 10 mm and 1 km = 100000 cm

Therefore 35 mm = 35/10 cm = 3.5 cm,

35 mm = 35/1000 m = 0.035 m

35 mm = 35/1000000 km = 0.000035 km

Hence, 35 mm = 3.5 cm, 0.035 m and 0.000035 km.

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

(i) 200g = 200/1000 kg [since 1 kg = 1000g]

Q.7 Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayub went from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Distance travelled by Dinesh from A to C

= AB + BC = 7.5 km +- 12.7 km= 20.2 km

Distance travelled by Ayub from A to C

= AD + DC = 9.3 km + 11.8 km = 21.1 km

Since 21.1 km > 20.2 km.

Hence, Ayub travelled more distance.

Q.8 Shyama bought 5 kg 300 g apples and 3 kg 250 g mangoes. Sarala bought 4 kg 800 g oranges and 4 kg 150 g bananas. Who bought more fruits?

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 2 Fractions And Decimals

Answer :

Fruits bought by Shyama

= 5 kg 300 g apples + 3 kg 250 g mangoes

= 5.300 kg apples + 3.250 kg mangoes

= 8.550 kg of fruits

Fruits bought by Sarala

= 4 kg 800 g oranges +- 4 kg 150 g bananas

= 4.800 kg oranges + 4.150 kg bananas

= 8.950 kg of fruits

Since 8.950 kg > 8.550 kg

Hence, Sarala bought more fruits.
