AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 6

To do:

We have to write shaded portion as fraction and arrange them in ascending and descending order using correct sign $‘’$ between the fractions.

Solution:

(a) There are eight parts in the first circle and 3 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{3}{8}$

There are eight parts in the second circle and 6 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{6}{8}$

There are eight parts in the third circle and 4 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{4}{8}$

There are eight parts in the fourth circle and 1 part is shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{1}{8}$

Therefore,

$\frac{1}{8}

(b) There are 9 parts in the first square and 8 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{8}{9}$

There are 9 parts in the second square and 4 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{4}{9}$

There are 9 parts in the third square and 3 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{3}{9}$

There are 9 parts in the fourth square and 6 parts are shaded.

Therefore,

The fraction representing the shaded portion $= \frac{6}{9}$

Therefore,

$\frac{3}{9}

(c) We have to show \( \frac{2}{6}, \frac{4}{6}, \frac{8}{6} \) and \( \frac{6}{6} \) on the number line and put appropriate signs between the fractions given.

Here, $\frac{6}{6}=1$ and $1\frac{2}{6}=\frac{8}{6}$

Therefore,

From the figure,

$\frac{5}{6} > \frac{2}{6}$

$\frac{3}{6}

$\frac{1}{6}

$\frac{8}{6} > \frac{5}{6}$
