## Mixed Numbers Multiplication Word Problems

Example 1.
Sai spent 8 hours selling vegetables in the market. Murali sells for 1$$\frac {1}{ 4}$$  times as many hours as Sai. How many hours did Murali sell vegetables in the market?
Solution:
Time is taken by Sai for selling the vegetables= 8 hours
Murali sells vegetables =1 $$\frac {1}{ 4}$$ × 8
=$$\frac {5}{ 4}$$ × 8
=$$\frac {5}{ 4}$$× $$\frac {8}{ 1}$$
=$$\frac {40}{ 4}$$ =10
Therefore, Murali spent 10 hours selling vegetables in the market.

Example 2.
On Doctor’s advice, Rajesh decided to walk every day. He walks $$\frac {4}{ 7}$$ kilometers every day. How many kilometers did he walk in a week?
Solution:
Rajesh walk every day= $$\frac {4}{ 7}$$
No. of kilometers Rajesh walk in a week=7 × $$\frac {4}{ 7}$$
=4 km
Therefore, Rajesh walks 4 km a week.

Example 3.
The heaviest weight in the family of Sarath is 90 kg. Sarath’s weight is $$\frac {1}{ 3}$$ of the heaviest weight. Find the weight of Sarath?
Solution:
The heaviest weight in the family = 90 kg
Sarath weight= $$\frac {1}{ 3}$$× 90
=30 kg
Hence, Sarath’s weight is 30 kg.

Example 4.
Supriya is interested in singing and dancing. Supriya practices 28 hours a week with them. She takes $$\frac {1}{ 3}$$ of the time for singing and $$\frac {1}{ 4}$$ of the time for dancing. How many hours does she take for dancing?
Solution:
Total no. of hours Supriya practice every week= 28
Supriya takes time for singing=$$\frac {1}{ 3}$$
Supriya takes time for dancing=$$\frac {1}{ 4}$$
No. of hours she spends in dancing=$$\frac {1}{ 4}$$× 28
=7
Therefore, Supriya takes 7 hours for dancing.

Example 5.
In an office, there are 2000 employees. Male employees are $$\frac {1}{ 4}$$. Find the Female employees in the office?
Solution:
Total no. of employees in the office=2000
No. of male employees=$$\frac {1}{ 4}$$
No. of female employees=1-$$\frac {1}{ 4}$$=$$\frac {3}{4}$$
$$\frac {3}{ 4}$$× 2000=1500.
Therefore, the total no. of female employees in the office is 1500.

Example 6.
Games are conducted for the students in class X. $$\frac {3}{ 8}$$ of the total no of students are in class X. $$\frac {1}{ 5}$$ of the students in class X participate in games. What fraction of all the students participate in the games?
Solution:
No. of students in the class X= $$\frac {3}{ 8}$$
No. of students participate in the games=$$\frac {1}{ 5}$$
Fraction of all students participate in the games=$$\frac {3}{ 8}$$ × $$\frac {1}{5}$$=$$\frac {3}{40}$$
Therefore, the fraction of all the students participating in the exam is $$\frac {3}{40}$$ .

Example 7.
Jagadish planted a mango tree and guava tree in the garden. The guava tree is 3 $$\frac {1}{ 5}$$ feet tall. The mango tree is 1 $$\frac {1}{ 3}$$ as tall as the guava tree. How tall is the mango tree?
Solution:
The height of the guava tree=3 $$\frac {1}{5}$$
The height of the mango tree =1$$\frac {1}{ 3}$$ × 3 $$\frac {1}{ 5}$$
=$$\frac {4}{ 3}$$ × $$\frac {16}{ 5}$$
=$$\frac {4 × 16}{ 3× 5}$$
=$$\frac {64}{15}$$
=4 $$\frac {4}{15}$$
Therefore, the height of the mango tree is 4 $$\frac {4}{15}$$.

Example 8.
The cake needs 3 $$\frac {1}{2}$$ cups of flour. Janci is baking 2 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$ cakes. How many cups of flour will she need?
Solution:
No. of cups of flour required for cake=3 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$
No. of cakes baking= 2 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$
No. of cups of flour required=2 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$ × 3 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$
=$$\frac {5}{ 2}$$× $$\frac {7}{ 2}$$
=$$\frac {35}{ 4}$$
=8 $$\frac {3}{ 4}$$
Therefore, 8 $$\frac {3}{ 4}$$ cups of flour required for baking 2 $$\frac {1}{ 2}$$ cakes.

Example 9.
Sirisha uses $$\frac {2}{5}$$ liters of petrol in her Scooty for 1 km. Find how many liters of petrol Sirisha use to drive 1 $$\frac {3}{8}$$ km?
Solution:
No. of liters of petrol for 1 km=$$\frac {2} {5}$$
No. of liters of petrol used for 1 $$\frac {3}{ 8}$$ km= 1 $$\frac {3}{ 8}$$  × $$\frac {2} {5}$$
=$$\frac {11} {8}$$× $$\frac {2} {5}$$
=$$\frac {22} {40}$$
=$$\frac {11} {10}$$
Therefore, Sirisha uses $$\frac {11} {10}$$ lt of petrol for 1 $$\frac {3} {8}$$ km.

Example 10.
A restaurant makes sweet lime juice on Friday and uses 3 $$\frac {1} {8}$$ kg of sweet limes. As Saturday is a busy day, the restaurant plans to make 8 $$\frac {1} {9}$$ as much as sweet lime juice. How many kg of Sweet lime juice is required?
Solution:
No. of kg of sweet limes used= 3 $$\frac {1} {8}$$
No. of kg of sweet limes used to make 8 $$\frac {1} {9}$$ lt=3 $$\frac {1} {8}$$ ×  8 $$\frac {1} {9}$$
=$$\frac {25} {8}$$ ×  $$\frac {73} {9}$$
=$$\frac {25 × 73} {8 × 9}$$
=$$\frac {1825} {72}$$
=25 $$\frac {25} {72}$$
Therefore, Restaurant uses 25 $$\frac {25} {72}$$ kg of sweet limes.

Example 11.
Rakesh can ride a bike 3 $$\frac {2} {5}$$ km in 1 hour. If he plans to ride a bike for 4 $$\frac {1} {7}$$ hours, how much distance he can travel?
Solution:
No. of km Rakesh can ride a bike= 3 $$\frac {2} {5}$$ km
No. of km Rakesh can ride a bike in 4 $$\frac {1} {7}$$hours=4 $$\frac {1} {7}$$  × 3 $$\frac {2} {5}$$
=$$\frac {29} {7}$$ × $$\frac {17} {5}$$
=$$\frac {29 × 17} {7 × 5}$$
=$$\frac {493} {35}$$
=14 $$\frac {3} {35}$$
Therefore, Rakesh can ride a bike in 14 3/35 km.
