DAV Class 4 Maths Ch 6 WS 4 Solutions
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?
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?
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?
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?
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.
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?
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
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?
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.
