**IMPORTANT POINTS**

**Place-Value (Local Value) :**The place value (Local-value) of a digit depends upon the position, it occupies in the number:

For example :

In the number 6453

the place value of 6 is 6 thousand = 6 x 1000 = 6000

the place value of 4 is 4 hundred = 4 x 100 = 400

the place value of 5 is 5 ten = 5 x 10 = 50

the place value of 3 is 3 one = 3 x 1 = 3**Face-Value (True-Value) :**Each digit in a number has a fixed value, regardless to its position in the number

For Example :

In the above number 6453

Face value of 6 is 6, 4 is 4, 5 is 5 and 3 is 3**An Abstract Number :**Which does not refer to any particular unit e.g., 3, 5, 9.**A Concrete Number :**Which refers to particular unit e.g., 3 boys, 5 girls, 9 rooms etc.

The smallest (least) one digit Number is 1.

The largest (greatest) one digit number is 9.

### Number System Exercise 1A – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 6 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

Which is greater ?

(i) 537 or 98

(ii) 2428 or 529

(iii) 2, 59, 467 or 10, 35, 729

**Solution:**

(i) 537 or 98

Since 537 is three digit number and 98 is two digit number.

Hence 537 > 98 and 537 is greater

(ii) 2428 or 529

Since 2498 is four digit number and 529 is three digit number.

2498 > 529 ; 2498 is greater

(iii) 2, 59, 467 or 10, 35, 729

Since 10, 35, 729 is seven digit number and 2, 59, 467 is six digit number

10, 35, 729 > 2, 59, 467 ; 10, 35, 729 is greater

**Question 2.**

Which is smaller ?

(i) 428 or 437

(ii) 2497 or 2597

(iii) 3297 or 3596

**Solution:**

(i) 428 or 437

We observe that both the numbers are of three-digits.

And at the leftmost, both the number have same digit i.e. 4. But at the second place from the left, the first, number has 2 and the second number has 3.

Since 2 < 3

437 is greater

(ii) 2497 or 2597

We observe that both the numbers are of four digits.

And at the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 2. But at the second place from the left, the first number has 4 and the second number has 5.

Since 4 < 5

2597 is greater

(iii) 3297 or 3596

We observe that both the numbers are of four digits.

And at the leftmost, both the numbers have same digit i.e. 2. But at the second place from the left, the first number has 4 and the second number has 5.

Since 4 < 5

3596 is greater

**Question 3.**

Which is greater ?

(i) 45293 or 45427

(ii) 380362 or 381007

(iii) 63520 or 63250

**Solution:**

(i) 45293 or 45427

We observe that both the numbers are of 5-digits.

And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.

But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 2 and the second number has 4.

Since 2 < 4

45427 is greater

(ii) 380362 or 381007

We observe that both the numbers are of 6-digits.

And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.

But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 0 and the second number has 1.

Since 0 < 1

381007 is greater

(iii) 63520 or 63250

We observe that both the numbers are of 5-digits.

And at the digits at leftmost and second place from the left are same.

But the digits at the third place from the left are different, the first number has 5 and the second number has 2.

Since 5 < 2

63520 is greater

**Question 4.**

By making a suitable chart, compare:

(i) 540276 and 369998

(ii) 6983245 and 6893254

(i) 540276 and 369998

5 | 4 | 0 | 2 | 7 | 6 |

3 | 6 | 9 | 9 | 9 | 8 |

Clearly, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 6

And at the leftmost, the first number has 5 and the second number has 3.

Since 5 > 3

540276 is greater.

(ii) 6983245 and 6893254

6 | 9 | 8 | 3 | 2 | 4 | 5 |

6 | 8 | 9 | 3 | 2 | 5 | 4 |

Clearly, both the numbers have equal number of digits i.e. 7

And at the leftmost, both have the same digit i.e. 6

And at the second place from the left, the first number has 9 and the second number has 8.

Since 9 > 8

6983245 is greater.

**Question 1.**

Population of a city was 3, 54, 976 in the year 2014. In the year 2015, it was found to be increased by 68, 438. What was the population of the city at the end of the year 2015?

**Solution:**

Population of a city in 2014 = 3,54, 976

Population increased in 2015 = 68, 438

Total population at the end of the year 2015 = 3, 54, 976 + 68, 438 = 423414

**Question 2.**

A = 7,43,000 and B = 8,00,100. Which is greater A or B ? And, by how much?

**Solution:**

A = 7,43,000

B = 8,00,100

B is greater than A. (B > A)

Because = B – A

Since A = 7, 43, 000 and B = 800,100 and both the numbers have 6 digits.

And at the leftmost, the first number has 7 and the second number has 8.

Since 8 > 7

800, 600 > 7,43,000 (B > A)

B is greater than A by = 800, 100 – 7, 43, 000 = 57, 100

**Question 3.**

A small and thin notebook has 56 pages. How many total number of pages will 5326 such note-books have?

**Solution:**

Number of pages in one notebook = 56 pages

Number of pages in 5326 notebooks = 5326 x 56 = 298256 pages

**Solution:**

Number of sheets available = 75, 000

Number of pages obtained from one sheet = 8

Total number of pages obtained = 8 x 75, 000 = 6, 00, 000

**Question 5.**

Add 1, 76, 209; 4, 50, 923 and 44, 83, 947

**Solution:**

1, 76, 209 + 4, 50, 923 + 44, 83, 947

Adding these values, we get = 51, 11, 079

**Question 6.**

A cricket player has so far scored 7, 849 runs in test matches. He wishes to complete 10, 000 runs ; how many more runs does he need ?

**Solution:**

Runs required = 10, 000 – 7, 849 = 2151

**Question 7.**

In an election two candidates A and B are the only contestants. If candidate A scored 9, 32, 567 votes and candidates B scored 9, 00, 235 votes, by how much margin did A win or loose the election ?

**Solution:**

Scores of candidate A = 9,32,567

Scores of candidate B = 9,00,235

Candidate A win the election By margin = 9,32,567 – 9,00,235 = 32,332 scores

**Question 8.**

Find the difference between the largest and the smallest number that can be written using the digits 5, 1, 6,3 and 2 without repeating any digit.

**Solution:**

The digits given are = 5, 1, 6, 3 and 2

The largest 5-digit number that can be formed using the digits 5, 1, 6, 3 and 2 = 65321

The smallest 5-digit number that can be formed using the digits 5, 1,6, 37and 2 =12356

Difference between 65321 and 12356

= 65321 – 12356 = 52,965

**Question 9.**

A machine manufactures 5,782 screws every day. How many screws will it manufacture in the month of April ?

**Question 12.**

Mohani has 30 m cloth and she wants to make some shirts for her son. If each shirt requires 2 m 30 cm cloth, how many shirts, in all, can be made and how much length of cloth will be lefft ?

**Solution:**

Total length of cloth available = 30 m or 30 x 100 = 3000 cm

Shirt made by using 2m 30cm (230 cm) cloth = 1

Shirts made by using 30 m cloth = \(\frac { 1 }{ 230 }\) x 3000 = 13.04 = 13 shirts

Cloth required to make 13 shirts = 230 x 13 = 2990 cm or 29 m 90 cm

Hence, remaining cloth = 30 m – 29 m = 1m

**Question 13.
**The weight of a box is 4 kg 800 gm. What is the total weight of 150 boxes?>

**Solution:**

Weight of one box = 4 kg 800 gm

Total weight of 150 boxes = 4 kg 800 g x 150 = 720 kg

**Question 14.**

The distance between two places A and B is 3 km 760 m. A boy travels A to B and then B to A every day. How much distance does he travel in 8 days?

**Solution:**

Distance between two places = 3 km 760 m 3760 m

Distance among A to B and B to A = 2 x 3760 m = 7520 m

In 8 days he travelled = 7520 x 8 = 60160 m or 60 km 160 m

**Question 15.**

An oil-tin contains 6 litre 60 ml oil. How many identical bottles can the oil fill, if capacity of each bottle is 30 ml ?

**Solution:**

Oil contained in a tin = 6 litre 60 ml = 6 x 1000 + 60 = 6060 ml

Capacity of each bottle = 30 ml

No. of bottled can be filled with 30 ml oil = 6060 ÷ 30 = 202 bottles

**Question 16.**

The scale receipt of a company in a certain year was ₹ 83, 73, 540. In the following year, it was decreased by ₹ 7, 84, 670.

(i) What was the sale receipt of the company during second year?

(ii) What was the total sale receipt of the company during these two years?

**Solution:**

Sale receipt of the company during first year = ₹ 83,73,540

Sale decreased in second year = ₹ 7,84,670

(i) The sale receipt of the company during second year = ₹ 83,73,540 – ₹ 7,84,670

(ii) Total sale receipt of the company during these two years = ₹ 83, 73, 540 + ₹ 75, 88, 870 = ₹ 1, 59, 62, 410

**Question 17.**

A number exceeds 8, 59, 470 by 3, 00, 999. What is the number?

**Solution:**

First number = 8, 59, 470

Difference between second and first number = 3, 00, 999

Second number = 8, 59, 470 + 3, 00, 999 = 11, 60, 469
