## NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 1 Knowing Our Numbers- Exercise 1.1

(a) 1 lakh = _______ ten thousand.

(b) 1 million = _______ hundred thousand.

(c) 1 crore = _______ ten lakh.

(d) 1 crore = _______ million.

Answer:

Let us take this as a physical world problem:

You went to a shop and you bought a toy of Rs. 100. You checked your pocket and found many notes but of only Rs.10

How many Rs.10 notes will you give to shopkeeper:

Well, it’s simple.

You will pay 10 notes.

How?

100/10 =10

The similar easy approach can be done in all the blanks,

Hint: Always remember to keep your eyes on a number of zeros

(a)1 lakh= 100000

1thousand= 1000

Ten thousand= 10*1000 = 10000

Therefore,

1 lakh/ 10 thousand =100000/10000 =10

So, 1lakh= 10 ten thousand

(b) 1 million= 1000000

1thousand= 1000

Hundred thousand= 100*1000 = 100000

Therefore,

1 million/ hundred thousand =1000000/100000 =10

So, 1milion= 10 hundred thousand

(c) 1 crore= 10000000 (7 zeros)

1lakh= 100000 (5 zeros)

Ten lakh= 10*1000 = 1000000( 6 zeros)

Therefore,

1 crore/ Ten lakh=10000000/1000000 =10

So, 1 crore= 10 Ten lakh

(d)1 crore= 10000000 (7 zeros)

1million= 100000 (6 zeros)

Therefore,

1 crore/ 1million=10000000/1000000 =10

So, 1 crore= 10 million

(e) 1 million= 1000000

1lakh= 100000

Therefore,

1million/ 10 lakh = 1000000/100000 =10

So, 1 million= 10 lakhs

See, all answers came out to be 10 but not everytime

Q2 Place commas correctly and write the numerals:

(a) Seventy three lakh seventy five thousand three hundred seven.

(b) Nine crore five lakh forty one.
