**Question 1 : **What are the ways in which the sunflower and marigold are planted?
18 = _____ × ______ So there is ___ row with ___ plants.
18 = _____ × ______ So there are ___ rows with ___ plants.

**Answer : **It is observed from the given picture that the sunflower is planted in
one row and the marigold is planted in two rows with 9 flowers in
each row.

The correct answer is:

18 = 1 × 18. So, there is 1 row with 18 plants.

18 = 2 × 9. So, there are 2 rows with 9 plants.

**Question 2 : **You too can make your own garden. Draw a garden, showing flower-
beds with 48 plants. Each row should have the same number of plants.

**Answer : **
Answers may vary from student to student. Do it by yourself based on
your choice of arrangements.

The different possible arrangements are:

48 = 1 × 48, 1 row with 48 plants.

48 = 2 × 24, 2 rows with 24 plants.

48 = 3 × 16, 3 rows with 16 plants.

48 = 4 × 12, 4 rows with 12 plants.

48 = 6 × 8, 6 rows with 8 plants.

48 = 8 × 6, 8 rows with 6 plants.

48 = 12 × 4, 12 rows with 4 plants.

48 = 16 × 3, 16 rows with 3 plants.

48 = 24 × 2, 24 rows with 2 plants.

48 = 48 × 1, 48 rows with 1 plant.

fill in the missing numbers.

**Question 9 : ** Billo has kept his chickens in a box. He counted 28 legs. How
many
chickens are there?

**Answer : **A chicken has 2 legs. We know that 2 times 14 is equal to 28, That

**Question 11: **A frog jumps 3 steps at a time starting from 0. Count the jumps he
takes to reach 27. So, he has taken 27 ÷ 3 = _______ jumps.

**Answer : **The number of steps in one jump is 3. Divide 27 by 3 to get the
number of jumps he takes to reach 27 steps.

27 ÷ 3 = 9

So, he has taken 9 jumps.

**Question 12: **
He has taken _________ jumps, if he is at 36.

**Answer : **The number of steps in one jump is 3. Divide 36 by 3 to get the
number of jumps he takes to reach 36 steps.

36 ÷ 3 = 12

He has taken 12 jumps, if he is at 36.

**Question 13: **If he is at 42, he has taken _______ jumps.

**Answer : **The number of steps in one jump is 3. Divide 42 by 3 to get the

42 ÷ 3 = 14

Therefore, if he is at 42, he has taken 14 jumps.

**Question 14: **Starting from 0, a rabbit jumps 5 steps at a time. In how many
jumps
does he reach 25?

**Answer : **
The number of steps in one jump is 5. Divide 25 by 5 to get the
number of jumps he takes to reach 25 steps.

25 ÷ 5 = 5

Therefore, if he is at 5, he has taken 5 jumps.

**Question 15: **He reaches _________ after taking 8 jumps.

**Answer : **
The number of steps in one jump is 5. Multiply 8 by 5 to get the
number of steps he reaches after 8 jumps.

**Question 17: **
Now he was left with 84 shells. Again, he took 28 more shells for the
second necklace. How many shells are left now?

**Answer : **Subtract 28 from 84 to get the number of shells
left.

84 – 28 = 56

Therefore, after he took shells for the third necklace, he was left with
56 shells.

**Question 18: **
Then he took shells for the third necklace. So he was left with
________ shells.

**Answer : **Subtract 28 from 56 to get the number of shells left.

56 – 28 = 28

Therefore, after he took shells for the third necklace, he was left with
28 shells.

**Question 19: **
How many necklaces can Dhruv make from 112 shells?

**Answer : **The total number of shells Dhruv had is 112. After removing shells for
three necklaces, he was left with 28 shells. With 28 shells he can make
one more necklace.

Hence, he can make 4 necklaces from 112 shells.

**Question 20: **
Are the shells enough for making necklaces for all his friends?

**Answer : **
After removing the shells for three of his friends he was still left with
28 shells. Hence, the shells were enough for making necklaces for all
his friends.

**Question 21: **
Try these:

A) Kannu made a necklace of 17 sea-shells. How many such
necklaces can be made using 100 sea-shells?

**Answer : **
Step 1: The total number of shells is 100. Shells required to make one
necklace is 17.

Subtract 17 from 100 to get the number of shells left after removing
the shell for 1 necklace.

100 – 17 = 83

Step 2: Subtract 17 from 83 to get the number of shells left after
removing the shell for the 2 necklaces.

83 – 17 = 66

Step 3: Subtract 17 from 66 to get the number of shells left after
removing the shell for the 3 necklaces.

66 – 17 = 49

Step 4: Subtract 17 from 49 to get the number of shells left after
removing the shell for the 4 necklaces.

49 – 17 = 32

Step 5: Subtract 17 from 32 to get the number of shells left after
removing the shell for the 5 necklaces.

32 – 17 = 15.

Thus, after removing shells for five necklaces he was left with 15
shells which is less than 17.

Hence, he can make 5 necklaces with 100 shells.

**Question 22: **
B) One carton can hold 85 soap bars. Shally wants to pack 338 soap
bars. How many cartons does she need for packing all of them?

**Answer : **

Step 1: The total number of soap bars to be packed is 338.
Number of soap bars in one carton is 85.

Subtract 85 from 338 to get the number of soap bars left after packing
1 carton.

338 – 85 = 253

Step 2: Subtract 85 from 253 to get the number of soap bars left after
packing 2 cartons.

253 – 85 = 168

Step 3: Subtract 85 from 168 to get the number of soap bars left after
packing 3 cartons.

168 – 85 = 83

After packing three cartons she will be left with 83 soap bars.
Therefore, the total number of cartons required to pack 338 soap bars
is 4.

**Question 23: **
C) Manpreet wants 1500 sacks of cement for making a house. A truck
carries 250 sacks at a time. How many trips will the truck make?

**Answer : **Step 1: Total number of cement sacks required to make a house is
1500.

Number of sacks a truck can carry at a time is 250.

Subtract 250 from 1500 to get the number of sacks left after 1 trip.

1500 – 250 = 1250

Step 2: Subtract 250 from 1250 to get the number of sacks left after 2
trips.

1250 – 250 = 1000

Step 3: Subtract 250 from 1000 to get the number of sacks left after 3
trips.

1000 – 250 = 750

Step 4: Subtract 250 from 750 to get the number of sacks left after 4
trips.

750 – 250 = 500

Step 5: Subtract 250 from 500 to get the number of sacks left after 5
trips.

500 – 250 = 250

Step 6: Subtract 250 from 250 to get the number of sacks left after 6
trips.

250 – 250 = 0

Therefore, the truck will make 6 trips to carry all the sacks.

**Question 24: **
A driver charges Rs 500 for a trip. How much will Manpreet pay the
driver for all the trips?

**Answer : **
The charge for 1 trip is Rs 500.

Total number of trips required is 6.

Multiply 500 by 6 to get the total money that Manpreet has to pay.

500 × 6 = 3000

Thus, he has to pay Rs 3000 for all the trips.

**Question 25: **
Are the sweets in the tray enough to pack 23 small boxes?

**Answer : **The total number of sweets in the tray was 80.
Number of sweets in a small box is 4.

Total number of boxes required is 23.

Multiply 23 by 4 to get the number of sweets required to be packed in
23 boxes.

23 × 4 = 92

The number of sweets required is 92 which is more than 80.
Therefore, sweets in the tray are not enough to pack 23 small boxes.

**Question 26: **
How many more sweets are needed?

**Answer : **Number of sweets required is 92.
Total number of sweets in the tray is 80.

Subtract 80 from 92 to get the number of sweets required.

92 – 80 = 12

Therefore, 12 more sweets are required.

**Question 27: **
Gangu also has a bigger box in which he packs 12 laddoos. How
many boxes does he need for packing 60 laddoos?

**Answer : **The number of laddoos to be packed is 60.

Number of laddoos in one box is 12.

Divide 60 by 12 to get the total number of boxes required.

60 ÷ 12 = 5

Therefore, he needs 5 boxes to pack 60 laddoos.

**Question 28: **
1) Neelu brought 15 storybooks to her class. Today 45 students are
present. How many children will need to share one book?

**Answer : **Total number of students present in the class is 45.

Total number of storybooks is 15.

Divide 45 by 15 to get the number of children that need to share one
book.

45 ÷ 15 = 3

Therefore, 3 children need to share one storybook.

**Question 29: **
2) A family of 8 people need 60 kg wheat for a month. How much
wheat does this family need for a week?

**Answer : **

Step 1: There are 30 days in a month. For 30 days the family
requires
60 kg wheat. Divide 60 by 30 to get the weight of wheat that the
family requires for 1 day.

60 ÷ 30 = 2

Step 2: There are 7 days in a week. Multiply 7 by 2 to get the weight
of the wheat that the family requires for a week.

7 × 2 = 14

Therefore, the family needs 14 kg wheat for a week.

500 ÷ 100 = 5

b) Divide 500 by 50 to get the number of 50-rupee notes.

500 ÷ 50 = 10

c) Divide 500 by 20 to get the number of 20-rupee notes.

500 ÷ 20 = 25

d) Divide 500 by 5 to get the number of 5-rupee notes.

500 ÷ 5 = 100
