**Problem 1 : **

In a library, 988 books were there. If 250 books are bought today, how many books are in the library now ?

**Solution : **

To find the total number of books in the library now, add 988 and 250.

= 988 + 250

= 1238

So, there are 1238 books in the library now.

**Problem 2 : **

1056 boys and 781 girls took part in an art competition. How many students took part in the competition in all ?

**Solution : **

To find the total number of students, add 1056 and 781.

= 1056 + 781

= 1837

So, 1837 students took part in the competition in all.

**Problem 3 : **

Jack has given $1025 to his wife. After giving $1025 to his wife, he has $756 left. How much money did he have initially ?

**Solution : **

To find the money Jack had initially, add 1025 and 756.

= 1025 + 756

= 1781

So, Jack had $1781 initially.

**Problem 4 : **

John has scored 600 marks and received grade B in an examination. If John had scored 200 more marks, he would have received grade A. Find the score for grade A.

**Solution : **

To find the score for grade A, add 600 and 200.

= 600 + 200

= 800

So, the score for grade A is 800.

**Problem 5 : **

William sold 1257 meatballs on Friday. He sold 158 more meatballs on Saturday than on Friday. How many meatballs did he sell altogether on these two days ?

**Solution : **

Number of meatballs sold on Friday :

= 1257

Number of meatballs sold on Saturday :

= 1257 + 158

= 1415

Number of meat balls sold on Friday and Saturday altogether :

= 1257 + 1415

= 2672

So, William sold 2672 meatballs altogether on Friday and Saturday.

**Problem 6 : **

Joey participated in a dance-a-thon. His team started dancing at 10 A.M. on Friday and stopped at 6 P.M. on Saturday. How many hours did Joey’s team dance ?

**Solution : **

From 10 A.M. Friday to 10 A.M. Saturday is 24 hours.

From 10 A.M. Saturday to 6 P.M. Saturday is another 8 hours.

Then, total hours is

= 24 + 8

= 32

So, Joey's team danced for a total of 32 hours.

**Problem 7 : **

Jeff left Hartford at 2:15 P.M. and arrived in Boston at 4:45 P.M. How long did the drive take him ?

**Solution : **

From 2:15 P.M. to 4:15 P.M. is 2 hours.

From 4:15 P.M. to 4:45 P.M. is another half hour.

Then, the total time is

= 2 hours + 0.5 hours

= 2.5 hours

= 2 hours 30 minutes

So, the drive took him for 2 hours 30 minutes.

**Problem 8 : **

Distance from place A to B is 50 miles, distance from place B to place C is two times the distance from place A to place B and the distance from Place C to place D is three-fourth of the distance from place B to place C. Find the distance from place A to place D.

**Solution : **

Distance from place A to place B :

= 50 miles

Distance from place B to place C :

= 2 ⋅ (Distance from A to B)

= 2 ⋅ 50 miles

= 100 miles

Distance from place C to place D :

= 3/4 ⋅ (Distance from C to D)

= 3/4 ⋅ 100 miles

= 3 ⋅ 25

= 75 miles

Total distance (A to D) :

= (A to B) + (B to C) + (C to D)

= 50 + 100 + 75

= 225 miles

So, the distance from Place A to place D is 225 miles.
