vii) Solution:
convert mixed fractions to improper fraction  Question 2.
Arrange the following in descending order:
I) Solution:
= We need to arrange these in descending order, To find which number is greater or smaller, we make their denominators equal. ii) Solution:
⇒ We make their denominators equal, to find the descending order. Question 3.
In a “magic square”, the sum of the numbers in each row, in each column and along the diagonals is the same. Is this a magic square ? Solution:
For Row,   Question 4.
A rectangular sheet of paper is 12$$\frac{1}{2}$$ cm long and 10$$\frac{2}{3}$$ cm wide. Find its perimeter.
Solution:
Length of rectangular sheet of paper = 12$$\frac{1}{2}$$ cm
(breadth) width of rectangular sheet paper = 10$$\frac{2}{3}$$ cm
Perimeter of rectangle = 2 (length + breadth) ∴ Perimeter of the rectangular sheet of paper is $$46 \frac{1}{3}$$ cm.

Question 5.
Find the perimeters of
(a) ∆ ABE
(b) the rectangle BCDE in this figure. Whose perimeter is greater? Solution:  Question 6.
Salil wants to put a picture in a frame. The picture is 7$$\frac{3}{10}$$ cm wide. How much should the picture be trimmed?
Solution:
We have, Hence, $$\frac{3}{10}$$ cm width of the picture should be trimmed. Question 7.
Ritu ate $$\frac{3}{5}$$ part of an apple and the remaining apple was eaten by her brother Somu. How much part of the apple did Somu eat ? Who had the larger share? By how much?
Solution:
Total part = 1
Part eaten by Ritu = $$\frac{3}{5}$$
Part of the apple eaten by Somu = $$1-\frac{3}{5}$$
= $$\frac{5}{5}-\frac{3}{5}=\frac{5-3}{5}=\frac{2}{5}$$
Since $$\frac{3}{5}>\frac{2}{5}$$ , Ritu had the larger share.
Now, $$\frac{3}{5}-\frac{2}{5}=\frac{3-2}{5}=\frac{1}{5}$$
∴ Ritu had( $$\frac{1}{5}$$ ) part more then Somu.

Question 8.
Michael finished colouring in $$\frac{7}{12}$$ hour. Vaibhav finished colouring the same picture in $$\frac{3}{4}$$ hour. Who worked longer? By what fraction was it longer?
Solution:
Michael finished work in = $$\frac{7}{12}$$ hour
Vaibhav finished work in = $$\frac{3}{4}$$
We need to find who worked longer.
i.e., we need to find greater of = $$\frac{7}{12}$$ & $$\frac{3}{4}$$
We make their denominators equal Hence, Vaibhav took $$\frac{1}{6}$$ hour more then minchel.
