Ex 8.5 Class 6 Maths Question 5.

Naresh walked 2 km 35 m in the morning and 1 km 7 m in the evening. How much distance did he walk in all?

Solution:

Distance walked by Naresh in the morning = 2 km 35 m = (2 + \(\frac { 35 }{ 1000 }\)) km = 2.035 km.

Distance walked by him in the evening = 1 km 7 m = (1 + \(\frac { 7 }{ 1000 }\)) km = 1.007 km 1000)

∴ Total distance walked by him in all

= (2.035 + 1.007) km

= 3.042 km

Ex 8.5 Class 6 Maths Question 6.

Sunita travelled 15 km 268 m by bus, 7 km 7 m by car and 500 m on foot in order to reach her school. How far is her school from her residence?

Solution:

Distance travelled by her by car

= 7 km 7 m = (7 + \(\frac { 7 }{ 1000 }\)) km

= 7.007km
