(ii) Here \(\frac{2}{4}\) shows out of 4 parts 2 parts are shaded

Question 2.

Identify the error if any

Solution:

In the given figure, shaded portion is not equal to unshaded portion. So the fraction is not equal to \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Question 3.

What fraction of an hour is 20 minutes?

Solution:

We know that total minutes in an hour = 60 min

∴ Required fraction = \(\frac{20 \min }{60 \min }=\frac{20}{60}=\frac{1}{3}\)

Question 4.

Write a fraction equivalent to \(\frac{3}{5}\) with numerator 15.

Solution:

Given, numerator of an equivalent fraction = 15

Equivalent fraction of \(\frac{3}{5}=\frac{3 \times 5}{5 \times 5}=\frac{15}{25}\)

Question 5.

Which is the larger fraction \(\frac{6}{10}\) or \(\frac{7}{10}\)?

Solution:

Here the denominators, of both fractions are same.

Also 7 > 6 So \(\frac{7}{10}>\frac{6}{10}\)

Question 6.

Sona got one-fifth of the total marks and Mala got one-third of the total marks. Who got more?

Solution:

We know that if the numerators are same in two fractions, the fraction with smaller denominator is greater.

∴ \(\frac{1}{3}>\frac{1}{5}\)

∴ Mala got more marks.
