Example 1.
Sindhu has 7 mangoes. She wants to share them with her friends. If Sindhu wants to give 1 $$\frac {2}{5}$$ of the mango to each of her friends, Find how many friends will get some mango?

Solution:

No. of mangoes Sindhu has=7
Sindhu gives mango to each of her friend=1 $$\frac {2}{5}$$
No. of friends will get Mangoes= 7 ÷1 $$\frac {2}{ 5}$$
=7 ÷ $$\frac {7}{ 5}$$
=$$\frac {7× 5}{ 7 × 1}$$
=$$\frac {35}{7}$$
=5
Therefore, 5 friends will get some mangoes.

Example 2.
Anand bought 10 gallons of green paint for painting the rooms in the office. If each room requires 1 $$\frac {1}{9}$$ of a gallon of paint. How many rooms will get painted?

Solution:

No. of gallons of paint bought for painting the rooms=10
No. of  gallons of paint required for each room=1 $$\frac {1}{9}$$
No. of rooms will get painted=10 ÷1 $$\frac {1}{9}$$
=10 ÷ $$\frac {10}{9}$$
= $$\frac {10× 9}{ 10 × 1}$$
=$$\frac {90}{ 10}$$
=9
Therefore, 9 rooms will get painted.

Example 3.
If Janaki runs 1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$ of a kilometer per hour. How many hours would it take to run 5 km?

Solution:

No. of kilometers Janaki runs per hour=1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$
No. of hours required for running 5 km =5 ÷1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$=5 ÷ $$\frac {5}{4}$$
=5 ×$$\frac {4}{5}$$
=20/5$$\frac {20}{5}$$
=4 hours
Therefore, Janaki requires 4 hours to run 5 km.

Example 4.
Suppose Grishma has 20 apples and you give each of your friends 1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$ of an apple. Find how many friends Grishma has?

Solution:

No. of apples Grishma has=20
Each friend will get an apple=1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$
No. of Friends Grishma has=20 ÷1 $$\frac {1}{4}$$
= 20 ÷ $$\frac {5}{4}$$
=20 × $$\frac {4}{5}$$
=$$\frac {180}{5}$$
=36
Therefore, Grishma has 36 friends.

Example 5.
Bhaskar got a plant in the garden. It grows 1 $$\frac {3}{4}$$ inches every month, How long it will take time for a plant to grow 9 $$\frac {1}{4}$$  inches?

Solution:

The plant grows every month=1 $$\frac {3}{4}$$
Time is taken for the plant to grow 9 $$\frac {1}{4}$$ inches = 1 $$\frac {3}{4}$$ ÷  9 $$\frac {1}{4}$$
=$$\frac {7}{4}$$÷$$\frac {37}{4}$$
=$$\frac {7 × 4}{37 × 4}$$
=$$\frac {28}{148}$$
=$$\frac {7}{37}$$
Therefore, the time taken for a plant to grow 9 $$\frac {1}{4}$$ inches is $$\frac {7}{37}$$.

Example 6.
Priya’s house is under construction, She is going to use tiles for the floor. The tile is in a square shape which is $$\frac {4}{5}$$ feet wide. The size of the room is 12 $$\frac {1}{8}$$ feet wide, how many tiles are required to cover the width of the room?

Solution:

The width of the tile = $$\frac {4}{5}$$
Size of the room=12 $$\frac {1}{8}$$
Tiles required to cover the width of the room= $$\frac {4}{5}$$ ÷12 $$\frac {1}{8}$$
=$$\frac {4}{5}$$  ÷ $$\frac {97}{8}$$
=$$\frac {4 × 8}{5 × 97}$$
=$$\frac {32}{485}$$
Therefore, $$\frac {32}{485}$$ tiles required to cover the width of the room.

Example 7.
Rithu has a material which is of length 1 $$\frac {2}{8}$$ m, she wants to cut pieces that are $$\frac {1}{4}$$ m long. How many pieces can she cut?

Solution:

Ritu has a material which is of length= 1 $$\frac {2}{8}$$
The length of pieces=$$\frac {1}{4}$$
Total no. of pieces Ritu can cut= 1 $$\frac {2}{8}$$  ÷$$\frac {1}{4}$$
= $$\frac {10}{8}$$ ÷ $$\frac {1}{4}$$
=$$\frac {5}{4}$$  ÷ $$\frac {1}{4}$$
=$$\frac {5 × 4}{4× 1}$$
=$$\frac {20}{4}$$
=5
Therefore, the total no. of pieces Ritu can cut is 5.

Example 8.
Prasanti has 1 $$\frac {1}{3}$$ of an hour to answer the problems in the maths examination. If it takes Prasanti $$\frac {1}{3}$$  of an hour to answer one problem, How many problems she can answer in the exam in the time left?

Solution:

Prasanti has the time to answer the exam= 1 $$\frac {1}{3}$$
Time is taken by Prasanti to answer one problem= $$\frac {1}{3}$$
No. of Problems Prasanti can answer = 1 $$\frac {1}{3}$$ ÷ $$\frac {1}{3}$$
=$$\frac {4}{3}$$ ÷ $$\frac {1}{3}$$
=$$\frac {4 × 3}{3 × 1}$$
=$$\frac {12}{3}$$
=4
Therefore, Prasanti can answer 4 problems in the time left.

Example 9.
A wood that is 14 $$\frac {1}{3}$$ feet long is cut into 5 pieces. Find how many feet long is each piece?

Solution:

Length of the wood = 14 $$\frac {1}{3}$$
No. of pieces of wood=5
Each piece is of length= 14 $$\frac {1}{3}$$ ÷ 5
=$$\frac {44}{3}$$ ÷ 5
=$$\frac {44 × 1}{3 × 5}$$
=$$\frac {44}{15}$$
=2  $$\frac {14}{15}$$
Therefore, the length of each piece is 2 $$\frac {14}{15}$$ .

Example 10.
Anusha completes $$\frac {1}{4}$$ part of the shopping in 1 $$\frac {1}{6}$$ hours. How much time she will take to complete the shopping?

Solution:

Time is taken by Anusha to complete the $$\frac {1}{4}$$  part of shopping = 1 $$\frac {1}{6}$$
Time is taken by Anusha to complete the shopping =1 $$\frac {1}{6}$$  ÷ $$\frac {1}{4}$$
= $$\frac {7}{6}$$ ÷ $$\frac {1}{4}$$
=$$\frac {7 × 4}{6 × 1}$$ =$$\frac {28}{6}$$=4 $$\frac {2}{3}$$.
Therefore, Anusha takes 4 $$\frac {2}{3}$$ hours to complete the shopping.
