Question 1.
If all the three cakes are divided among the total participants of the function what would be each one’s share? Discuss.
Solution:
Total participants of the function = 9
Total number of cakes = 3
∴ Each cake should be divided into 3 equal parts.
∴ Total number of equal parts of cake = 9
∴ Each one’s share may be $$\frac{1}{9}$$ of total cakes or $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of a cake.

Question 2.
Observe the following and represent the shaded parts as fraction. Solution:
(i) Total number of equal parts = 8
Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{3}{8}$$

(ii) Total number of equal parts = 15
∴ Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{5}{15}$$

(iii) Total number of equal parts = 9
∴ Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{3}{9}$$

(iv) Total number of equal parts = 9
Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{5}{9}$$

Question 3.
Look at the following beakers, express the quantity of water as fraction and arrange them in ascending order: Solution:
Quantity of water in the first beaker = 1 full
Quantity of water in the second beaker = $$\frac{1}{4}$$
Quantity of water in the third beaker = $$\frac{3}{4}$$
Quantity of water in the fourth beaker = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
Ascending order $$\frac{1}{4}$$ < $$\frac{1}{2}$$ < $$\frac{3}{4}$$ < 1

Question 4.
Write the fraction of shaded part in the following. Solution:
(i) Total number of equal parts = 3
Fraction representing the shaded portion = $$\frac{2}{3}$$

(ii) Total number of equal parts = 4
Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{3}{4}$$

(iii) Total number of equal parts = 5
Fraction representing the shaded parts = $$\frac{4}{5}$$ Question 5.
Write the fraction that represents the dots In the triangle. Solution:
Total number of dots = 24
Number of dots in the triangle = 6
∴ Fraction represents the dots in the triangle = $$\frac{6}{24}$$

Question 6.
Find the fractions of the shaded and unshaded portions in the following. Solution:
(a) Total number of equal parts = 8
∴ Fraction representing shaded parts = $$\frac{2}{8}$$

(b) Total number of equal parts = 8
∴ Fraction of unshaded portion = $$\frac{6}{8}$$

Take a rectangular paper. Fold it into two equal parts. Shade one part, write the fraction. Again fold it into two halves. Write the fraction for the shaded part. Continue this process 5 times and write the fraction of the shaded part. Establish the equivalent fractions of $$\frac{1}{2}$$ in the folded paper to your friends. Solution:
First time = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
Second time = $$\frac{2}{4}$$
Third time = $$\frac{4}{8}$$
Fourth time = $$\frac{8}{16}$$
Fifth time = $$\frac{16}{32}$$ (Try These Textbook Page No. 4)
