Question 3.
Naina was given 1$$\frac{1}{22}$$ piece of cake and Najma was given 1$$\frac{1}{3}$$ piece of cake. Find the total amount of cake was given to both of them.
Solution:
Cake taken by Naina = 1$$\frac{1}{2}$$ piece
And cake taken by Najma = 1$$\frac{1}{3}$$ piece
Total cake taken = $$1 \frac{1}{2}+1 \frac{1}{3}=\frac{3}{2}+\frac{4}{3}$$

Question 6.
A piece of wire $$\frac{7}{8}$$ metre long broke into two pieces. One piece was $$\frac{1}{4}$$ metre long. How long is the other piece?
Solution:
Total length of wire = $$\frac{7}{8}$$ metre
Length of first part = $$\frac{1}{4}$$ metre

Therefore, the length of remaining part is $$\frac{5}{8}$$ metre

Question 7.
Nandini’s house is $$\frac{9}{10}$$ metre km from her school. She 10
walked some distance and then took a bus for $$\frac{1}{2}$$ metre km to reach the school. How far did she walk?
Solution:
