Exercise 7.4

Question 1.
Write shaded portion as fraction. Arrange them in ascending and descending order using correct sign ‘<‘, ‘=’, ‘>’ between the fractions. (c) Show $\frac { 2 }{ 4 }$, $\frac { 4 }{ 6 }$, $\frac { 8 }{ 6 }$and $\frac { 6 }{ 6 }$on the number line. Put appropriate signs between the fractions given. Solution:
(a) Total number of divisions = 8
(i) Number of shaded parts = 3
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 3 }{ 8 }$

(ii) Total number of divisions = 8
Number of shaded parts = 6
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 6 }{ 8 }$

(iii) Total number of divisions = 8
Number of shaded parts = 4
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 4 }{ 8 }$

(iv) Total number of divisions = 8
Number of shaded part = 1
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 1 }{ 8 }$
Now the fractions are: $\frac { 3 }{ 8 }$, $\frac { 6 }{ 8 }$, $\frac { 4 }{ 8 }$and $\frac { 1 }{ 8 }$with same denominator. (b)(i) Total number of divisions = 9
Number of shaded parts = 8
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 8 }{ 9 }$
(ii) Total number of divisions = 9
Number of shaded parts = 4
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 4 }{ 9 }$
(iii) Total number of divisions = 9
Number of shaded parts = 3
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 3 }{ 9 }$
(iv) Total number of divisions = 9
Number of shaded parts = 6
∴ Fraction = $\frac { 6 }{ 9 }$
∴ Fractions are $\frac { 8 }{ 9 }$, $\frac { 4 }{ 9 }$, $\frac { 3 }{ 9 }$, $\frac { 6 }{ 9 }$with same denominator. Question 2.
Compare the fractions and put an appropriate sign. Solution: Here, denominators of the two fractions are same and 3 < 5. Here, numerators of the fractions are same and 7 > 4. Here, denominators of the two fractions are same and 4 < 5. Here, numerators of the two fractions are same and 5 < 7. Question 3.
Make five more such pairs and put appropriate signs.
Solution: Question 4.
Look at the figures and write ’<’, or ’>’ ’=’ between the given pairs of fractions. Make five more such problems and solve them with your friends
Solution: Make five more such problems yourself and solve them with your friends.

Question 5.
How quickly can you do this? Fill appropriate sign. ‘<‘, ‘=’, ‘>’.  Solution:   Question 6.
The following fractions represent just three different numbers. Separate them into three groups of equivalent fractions, by changing each one to its simplest form. Solution: Now grouping the above fractions into equivalent fractions, we have Question 7.
Find answers to the following. Write and indicate how you solved them. Solution: By cross-multiplying, we get
5 x 5 = 25 and 4 x 9 = 36
Since 25 ≠ 36 By cross-multiplying, we get
9 x 9 = 81 and 16 x 5 =80
Since 81 ≠ 80 By cross-multiplying, we get
4 x 20 = 80 and 5 x 16 = 80
Since 80 = 80 By cross-multiplying, we get
1 x 30 = 30 and 4 x 15 = 60 Question 8.
Ila read 25 pages of a book containing 100 pages.
Lalita read $\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$of the same book. Who read less?
Solution:
Ila reads 25 pages out of 100 pages. Lalita reads $\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$of the same book.
Comparing $\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$and $\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$, we get
1 x 5 = 5 and 2 x 4 = 8
Since 5 < 8 $\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$< $\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$

Question 9.
Rafiq exercised for $\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$of an hour, while Rohit exercised for $\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$of an hour. Who exercised for a longer time?
Solution:
Rafiq exercised for $\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$of an hour.
Rohit exercised for $\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$of an hour.
Comparing $\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$and $\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$, we get
3 x 4 = 12 and 3 x 6 = 18
Since 12 < 18 $\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$> $\frac { 3 }{ 6 }$
Hence Rohit exercised for longer time.

Question 10.
In a class A of 25 students, 20 passed in first class, in another class B of 30 students, 24 passed in first class. In which class was a greater fraction of students getting first class?
Solution:
In class A, 20 students passed in first class out of 25 students.
∴ Fraction of students getting first class In class B, 24 students passed in first class out of 30 students.
∴ Fraction of students getting first class Comparing the two fractions, we get $\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$= $\frac { 4 }{ 5 }$
Hence, both the class A and B have the same fractions.
