Answer: Total distance travelled by Dinesh = AB + BC
= 7.5km + 12.7km
= 20.2 km
Total distance travelled by Ayub = AD + DC
= 9.3km + 11.8 km
= 21.1 km
Hence Ayub travelled More distance than Ayub as 21.1 > 20.2
The difference between path travelled by them = 21.1km - 20.2 km
= 0.9 km.
Hence Ayub travelled 0.9 km more than Dinesh.
Answer: For comparing two quantities, we should make their unit the same first. So,
Fruits bought by Shyama in kg = 5 kg + 300 g + 3 kg + 250 g
= 8 kg + 550 g
= 8 kg + 0.55 kg
= 8.55 kg.
Fruits bought by Sarala in kg = 4 kg + 800 g + 4 kg + 150 g
= 8 kg + 950 kg
= 8 kg + 0.95 kg
= 8.95 kg.
Hence Sarala bought more fruits as 8.95 > 8.55
The difference between the amount of Fruits they bought = 8.95 kg - 8.55 kg
= 0.4 kg
9. How much less is 28 km than 42.6 km?
Answer: Difference = 42.6 km - 28 km
