(a) What will be the cost of 8 kg of wheat?

(b) What quantity of wheat can be purchased in ₹ 183?

Solution:

Cost of 5 kg wheat = ₹ 91.50.

Cost of 1 kg wheat = 91.50 / 5 = ₹ 18.3

Cost of 8 kg wheat = 18.3 × 8 =  ₹ 146.40

(b) Wheat purchased in ₹ 91.50 = 5 kg

## EX 12.3 QUESTION 7.

Cost of 4 dozen bananas is ₹ 180. How many bananas can be purchased for ₹ 90?

Solution:

Cost of 4 dozen bananas = ₹ 180

Cost of 48 bananas = ₹ 180      [4 dozen = 4 x 12 = 48]

From ₹ 180, the number of bananas can be purchased = 48

From ₹ 1, the number of bananas can be purchased = 48 / 180 = 4 /15

From ₹ 90, the number of bananas can be purchased = (4 / 15) x 90 = 24 bananas.

## EX 12.3 QUESTION 8.

The weight of 72 books is 9 kg. What is the weight of 40 such books?
