5. A taxi-driver filled his car petrol tank with 40 litres of petrol on Monday. The next day, he filled the tank with 50 litres of petrol. If the petrol costs ₹ 44 per litre, how much did he spend in all on petrol?

Solution:

Given,
Quantity of petrol filled on Monday=40 litres
Quantity of petrol filled on next day =50 litres
Total petrol filled =40+50=90 litres
Now,
Cost of 1-litre petrol =₹ 44
Cost of 90 litres petrol =44×90
=44×(100−10) [Using distributive property]
=44×100−44×10
=4400−440
=₹ 3960
Therefore, he spent ₹ 3960 on petrol.

6. A vendor supplies 32 litres of milk to a hotel in a morning and 68 litres of milk in the evening. If the milk costs ₹ 15 per litre, how much money is due to the vendor per day?

Solution:

Given,
Milk supplied in the morning =32 litres
Milk supplied in the evening =68 litres
Total supply =32+68=100 litres

Now
Cost of 1 litre of milk =₹ 15
Cost of 100 litres of milk =15×100=₹ 1500
Therefore, ₹ 1500 is due to the vendor per day.

7. Match the following:

Solution:

(i) We know that, Distributivity of multiplication over addition:
a×(b+c)=a×b+a×c
Similarly,
a×(b+c+d)=a×b+a×c+a×d
Therefore, 425×136=425×(6+30+100)
follows distributivity of multiplication over addition property.

(ii) We know that Commutativity under multiplication:
a×b=b×a
Similarly,
a×b×c=a×c×b=b×c×a
Therefore, 2×49×50=2×50×49 follows commutativity under the multiplication property.

(iii) We know that Commutativity under addition:
a+b=b+a
Similarly,
a+b+c=c+b+a=c+a+b
Therefore, 80+2005+20=80+20+2005 follows commutativity under addition property.
