Question 1.
Convert into indicated units: 200 mg into g.
Solution:
200 mg = $$200.0 \times \frac{1}{1000}$$ = 0.2 g

Question 2.
(a) What are the universally accepted basic metric units?
(b) A cow gives 10 litres of milk in the morning and 8 litres in the evening. Find the total milk it gives for a week in ml?
Solution:
(a) Universally accepted basic metric units are:
Length in metre, Weight in gram and Capacity (Volume) in litre.
(b) Litres of milk the cow gives in the morning = 10 l.
Litres of milk the cow gives in the evening = 8 l.
Total milk per day = 10 + 8 = 18 l
Total milk for a week = 18 × 7 l = 126 l = 126 × 1000 ml = 126000 ml.
Total milk the cow gives for a week = 1,26,000 ml.

Question 3.
A box contains 20 kg 280 g of sugar. After transferring into a smaller box of 2 kg 720 g 7 times find the remaining sugar left in the big box in cg.
Solution:
Total sugar in the box = 20 kg 280 g.
Measurement of smaller box = 2 kg 720 g.
7 times the smaller box = 2 kg 720 g × 7 = 19 kg 040 g.
Remaining sugar = 20 kg 280 g – 19 kg 40 g = 1 kg 240 g = 1240 g. = 1240 × 100 cg = 124000 eg.
Sugar left in the box = 1,24,000 eg.

Question 4.
Sneha needs 1 m 20 cm of cloth for her blouse. If she bought 20 such cloths find the total cloth she bought in cm?
Solution:
For one blouse the cloth needed = 1 m 20 cm
Cloth needed for 20 blouse = 1 m 20 cm × 20
= 20 m 400 cm
= 20 × 100 + 400 cm
= 2000 + 400 cm
= 2400 cm.
Total cloth bought = 2400 cm.

Question 5.
Can you add 2 m 20 cm and 4 kg 80 g? Why?
Solution:
No, we can’t. To add or subtract, the measures should be in the same unit. Question 6.
If you serve a cup of coffee measuring 150 ml each for 200 people find the volume of coffee needed in litres?
Solution:
For one cup of coffee it needs 150 ml.
For 200 people it needs 150 × 200 ml = 30000 ml = 30000 × $$\frac{1}{1000}$$ l = 30 l
Coffee needed = 30 l.

Question 7.
A lorry full of fertiliser is bought to the garden having 120 coconut trees. If the lorry contain 1920 kg, then find the measure of fertiliser each coconut tree can have?
Solution:
Total measure of fertiliser = 1920 kg.
Number of coconut tress = 120
For one tree = $$\frac{1920}{120}$$ kg = 16 kg.
One tree can have 16 kg of fertiliser

Question 8.
Convert 7 kg 250 g in to mg, g and cg?
Solution:
7 kg 250 g.
(i) 7 kg 250 g = 7 × 1000 + 250 g. = 7000 + 250 = 7250 g.
(ii) 7 kg 250 g = 7250 g. = 7250 × 1000 mg = 72,50,000 mg.
(iii) 7 kg 250 g = 7250 g. = 7250 × 100 cg = 7,25,000 cg.

Question 9.
Convert 20 m 20 cm into cm, m and km.
Solution:
20 m 20 cm.
(i) 20 m 20 cm = 20 × 100 + 20 cm = 2000 + 20 cm = 2020 cm
(ii) 20 m 20 cm = 2020 cm = 2020 × $$\frac{1}{100}$$ m = 20.20 m
(iii) 20 m 20 cm = 20.20 m = 20.20 × $$\frac{1}{1000}$$ km = 0.02020 km

Question 10.
Convert 85 l 720 ml into ml, l and kl?
Solution:
85 l 720 ml
(i) 85 l 720 ml = 85 × 1000 + 720 ml = 85000 + 720 ml = 85,720
(ii) 85 l 720 ml = 85 l + 720 × $$\frac{1}{1000}$$ l = 85 l + 0.720 l = 85.72 l.
(iii) 85 l 720 ml = 85.72 l = 85.72 × $$\frac{1}{1000}$$ kl = 0.08572 kl.

Question 11.
Which is greater 0.007 g, 0.7 kg or 70 mg?
Solution:
0.007 g = 0.007 × 1000 mg = 7 mg
0.7 kg = 0.7 × 10,00,000 mg = 7,00,000 mg
70 mg = 70 mg
∴ 0.7 kg is greater. Question 12.
