Q.5 Saili plants 4 saplings, in a row, in her garden. The distance between two adjacent saplings is 3/4 m. Find the distance between the first and the last sapling.

The distance between two adjacent saplings =3/4 m

Number of saplings planted by Saili in a row = 4

Then, number of gap in saplings = 3/4 × 4=12/4=3

Therefore The distance between the first and the last saplings = 3 × 3/4= (9/4) m
= \(2\frac{1}{4} \)
