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?

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.
