Question:

Mrs.Mathew divided ¾ kg of grapes equally among 6 children. How many kilograms of grapes did each child get?

Basic idea:

In this problem Mrs.Mathew is going to divided ¾ kg of grapes equally among 6 children. Now we need to find how many kilograms of grapes did each child get.To solve this problem we have to use the concept division.Because we are distributing the grapes.We have to divide the original quantity of grapes by no of persons.Here the original quantity of grapes is ¾ kg and number of person to be divided is 6.If we divide this we will get the quantity of grapes that each child is getting.

Solution:

Quantity of grapes that Mrs.Mathew had = 3/4 kg

Number of children is be divided = 6

Quantity of grapes that

each children get = (original quantity of grapes)/(Number of children)

= (3/4) ÷ 6

Now we are going to change this division as multiplication.So that we have to write the second fraction as its reciprocal.The first fraction will be as it is.

= (3/4) x (1/6)

= (3x1)/(4x6)

Numbers 3 in the numerator and 6 in the denominator can be simplified using 3 times table .So that we will get

= 1/(4x2)

= 1/8 kg

So the final answer is 1/8 kg

That is each child will get 1/8 kg of grapes .

“Mathematics, without this we can do nothing in our life. Each and everything around us is math.

Math is not only solving problems and finding solutions and it is also doing many things in our day to day life. They are:

It subtracts sadness and adds happiness in our life.

It divides sorrow and multiplies forgiveness and love.

Some people would not be able accept that the subject Math is easy to understand. That is because; they are unable to realize how the life is complicated. The problems in the subject Math are easier to solve than the problems in our real life. When we people are able to solve all the problems in the complicated life, why can we not solve the simple math problems?

Many people think that the subject math is always complicated and it exists to make things from simple to complicate. But the real existence of the subject math is to make things from complicate to simple.”
