Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 3.
Naina was given 1 1/2 piece of cake and Najma was given 1 1/3 piece of cake. Find the total amount of cake was given to both of them.
Piece of cake given to Naina = 1 1/1/2
Piece of cake given to Najma = 1 1/1/3
Hence the total amount of piece given to both = 2 5/6.

Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 6.
A piece of wire 7/8 metre long broke into two pieces. One piece was 1/4 metre long. How long is the other piece?
Total length of the wire = 7/8 metre
Length of one piece of wire = 1/4 metre
∴ Length of the other piece = 7/8 – 1/4
LCM of 8 and 4 = 8
Hence, the length of the other piece = 5/8 metre.
Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 7.
Nandini’s house is 9/10 km from her school. She walked some distance and then took a bus for 1/2 km to reach the school. How far did she walk?
Total distance from house to school = 9/10 km.
Distance travelled by Nandini by bus = 1/2 km
∴ Distance travelled by her on foot
Hence, the distance travelled by her on foot = 2/5km.
Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 8.
Asha and Samuel have bookshelves of the same size partly filled with books. Asha’s shelf is 5/6 th full and Samuel’s shelf is 2/5 th full. Whose bookshelf is more full? By what fraction?
Asha’s shelf is 5/6 th full
and Samuel’s shelf is 2/5 th full
Comparing 5/6 and 2/5
LCM of 6 and 5 = 30
Hence, Asha’s shelf is full more than Samuel’s shelf.
Hence, 13/30th fraction is more full of Asha’s shelf.
Ex 7.6 Class 6 Maths Question 9.
Jaidev takes 2 1/5 minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes 7/4 minutes to do the same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?
Jaidev takes 2 1/5 minutes 5
Rahul takes 2 7/4 minutes
Comparing 2 1/5 minutes and 7/4 minutes
So, the time take to cover the same distance by Rahul is less than that of Jaidev.
Hence, Rahul takes 9/20 minutes less to across the school ground.
