AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 6

Given:

The cost of $7\ m$ of cloth is $Rs.\ 1470$.

To do:

We have to find the cost of $5\ m$ of cloth.

Solution:

The cost of $7\ m$ of cloth $= Rs.\ 1470$

This implies,

The cost of $1\ m$ of cloth $=\frac{1470}{7}$

$= Rs.\ 210$

Therefore,

The cost of $5\ m$ cloth $=5\times210$

$= Rs.\ 1050$

The cost of 5m cloth is $Rs.\ 1050$.
