Short Answer Type Questions

Question 1.

Which is greater? Give reason for your answer.

(i) 1.008 or 1.800

Answer:

The whole parts are equal, and comparing the tenths parts, we have 0 < 8.

∴ 1.800 > 1.008

(ii) 3.3 or 3.300

Answer:

3.3 or 3.300

By converting 3.3 into like decimal, we have 3.3 = 3.300

The whole parts and the tenths parts are both equal.

∴ 3.3 = 3.300

(iii) 1.5 or 1.50

Answer:

1.5 or 1.50

By converting 1.5 into like decimal, we have

1.5 = 1.50

The whole parts and the digits in the tenths place are equal.

Question 2.

Choose the decimal(s) from the brackets which are not equivalent to the given decimals:

(i) 0.8 (0.80, 0.85,0.800,0.08)

Answer:

0.8 (0.80, 0.85, 0.800,0.08)

0.85 and 0.08 are not equivalent to the given decimal.

In 0.85, we have 5 in the hundredths place, whereas in 0.8 we have nothing in the hundredths place.

In 0.08,0 is in the tenths place, whereas in 0.8, 8 is in the tenths place.

(ii) 45.05 (45.050,45.005,45.500,45.0500)

Answer:

45.05 (45.050,45.005,45.500,45.0500)

45.5 and 45.500 are not equivalent to the given decimal.

In 45.005, 0 is in the hundredths place, whereas in 45.05, 5 is in the hundredths place.

In 45.500,5 is in the tenths place, whereas in 45.05, 5 is in the tenths place.

Question 3.

Arrange the following decimals in ascending order:

(i) 5.8, 7.2, 5.69,7.14,5.06

Answer:

Converting the given decimals into like decimals:

5.80, 7.2, 5.69, 7.14, 5.06

Clearly, 5.06 < 5.69 < 5.80 < 7.14 < 7.2

5.06, 5.69, 5.80, 7.14 and 7.2

(ii) 0.6, 6.6, 6.06,66.6, 0.06

Answer:

Converting the given decimals into like decimals:

0.60,6.60,6.06, 66.60, 0.06

Clearly, 0.06 < 0.60 < 6,06 < 6.60 < 66.60

Hence, the given decimals can be arranged in the ascending order as follows:

0.06,0.60,6.06, 6.60 and 66.60

Question 4.

Simplify:

(i) 37.6 + 72.85 – 58.678 – 6.09

(ii) 75.3 -104.645 + 178.96 – 47.9

Answer:

(i) 37.6 + 72.85 – 58.678 – 6.09

Converting the given decimals into like decimals, then adding and, finally, subtracting:

(37.60 + 72.85) – (58.678 + 6.090)

= 110.450 – 64.768 = 45.682

(ii) 75.3 – 104.645 + 178.96 – 47.9

Converting the given decimals into like decimals, then adding and, finally, subtracting:

= (75.30 + 178.96) – (104.645 + 47.900)

= 254.260 – 152.545 = 101.715
