A shirt was marked at ₹ 540. It was sold at $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ of the marked price. What was the sale price?

List price of the shirt = ₹ 540
Selling price = $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ of 540 = $$\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$$ × 540 = ₹ 405

Question 4.
In a class of 56 students, $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ are in blue house and $$\frac { 3 }{ 14 }$$ are in yellow house. Out of the remaining, $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ are in the greenhouse and the rest are in the red house. Find the number of students in each house.
Solution:
Number of total students of a class = 56
Number of students of blue house = $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$ of 56 = 14
Number of students of yellow house = $$\frac { 3 }{ 14 }$$ of 56 = 12
Remaining students = 56 – (14 + 12) = 56 – 26 = 30
Number of students of green house = $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ of 30 = 10
and remaining students who are of red house = 30 – 10 = 20

Question 5.
Rohit bought a motorcycle for ₹ 36000. He paid $$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ of the price in cash and the rest in 12 equal monthly instalments. Find the amount he had to pay every month.

Cost price of motor cycle = ₹ 36000
Cash paid = $$\frac { 1 }{ 6 }$$ of ₹ 36000 = ₹ 6000
Remaining amount = ₹ 36000 – ₹ 6000 = ₹ 30000
Number of installments = 12
Amount of each installment = ₹ 30000 ÷ 12 = ₹ 2500
Rohit had to pay ₹ 2500 every month.

Solution:  Question 10.
By how much does the sum of 17.443 and 29.657 exceed the sum of 13.687 and 18.548?
Solution:
Sum of 17.443 and 29.567 = 17.443 + 29.657 = 47.100
