## DAV Class 4 Maths Ch 6 WS 4 Solutions

Question 1.

Solve the following word problems.

(a) Two baskets contain 8 kg 650 g and 5 kg 550 g of tomatoes. How much is the total quantity of tomatoes?

Answer:

Tomatoes in one basket = 8kg 650g

Tomatoes in other basket = 5kg 550g

Total quantity = 14kg 200g

Thus, total quantity of tomatoes is 14 kg 200 g.

(b) A family consumed 40 kg 800 g flour in the month of December, 25 kg 500 g in the month of January and 38 kg 750 g in the month of February. What was the total consumption of flour for the three months?

Answer:

Flour consumed in Dec. = 40kg 800g

Flour consumed in Jan. = + 25kg 500g

Flour consumed in Feb. = + 38kg 750g

Total consumption = 105kg 050g

Thus, total consumption of flour for the three months is 105 kg 50 g.

(c) In a ration shop, there was 1250 kg 875 g of wheat in the morning. During the day, 1080 kg 250 g of wheat has sold out. By the evening how much of wheat was left in the shop?

Answer:

Quantity of wheat in shop = 1250 kg 875 g

Quantity of wheat sold out = – 1080 kg 250 g

Quantity of wheat left = 170kg 625g

Thus, 170 kg 625 g of wheat was left in the shop.

(d) The weight of one watermelon is 5 kg 350 g and that of another is 4 kg 945 g. Which watermelon is of more quantity and by how much?

Answer:

As 5 kg 350 g > 4 kg 945 g

wt. of 1st watermelon = 5kg 350g

wt. of 2nd watermelon = 4kg 945g

Thus, wt. of 1st watermelon is greater than 2nd watermelon by 405 g.

**Word Problems:**

E.g. A fruit seller had 26 kg 700 g of apples, in his shop. What is the total quantity of fruits in his shop?

Answer:

We add all the quantities

Quantity of apples = 26 kg 700 g

Quantity of oranges = 32 kg 570 g

Quantity of pears = 8 kg 910 g

Total quantity = 68 kg 180 g

Thus, total quantity of fruits in his shop is 68 kg 180 g

E.g.

Mohan’s mother used 36 kg 510 g of ghee out of a container of 50 kg of ghee. How much ghee is left in the container?

Answer:

We subtract the two weights to get the ghee that is left in the container.

Total ghee in the container = 50kg 000g

Ghee used up = 36kg 510g

Ghee left = 13kg 490g

Thus, 13 kg 490 g of ghee is left in the container.
