∵ 271 × 5 = 1355 and there are two digits right to the decimal point in 2.71.

Thus 2.71 × 5 = 13.55

(iv) 20.1 × 4

∵ 201 × 4 = 804 and there is one digit right to the decimal point in 20.1.

∵ 20.1 × 4 = 80.4

(v) 0.05 × 7

∵ 5 × 7 = 35 and there are 2 digits right to the decimal point in 0.05.

Thus 0.05 × 7 = 0.35

(vi) 211.02 × 4

∵ 21102 × 4 = 84408 and there are 2 digits right to the decimal point in 211.02.

Thus 211.02 × 4 = 844.08

(vii) 2 × 0.86

∵ 2 × 86 = 172 and there are 2 digits right to the decimal point in 0.86.

Thus 2 × 0.86 = 1.72

**Ex 2.6 Class 7 Maths Question 2. Find the area of rectangle whose length is 5.7 cm and breadth is 3 cm.**

From the question, it is given that,

Length of the rectangle = 5.7 cm

Breadth of the rectangle = 3 cm

Then,

Area of the rectangle = length × Breadth

= 5.7 × 3

= 17.1 cm^{2}

**Ex 2.6 Class 7 Maths Question 4. A two-wheeler covers a distance of 55.3 km in one litre of petrol. How much distance ****will it cover in 10 litres of petrol?**

**Answer**

From the question, it is given that,

Distance covered by two-wheeler in 1 litre of petrol = 55.3 km

Then, distance covered by two wheeler in 10 litres of petrol = (10 × 55.3)

= 553 km

∴ Two-wheeler covers a distance in 10 litres of petrol is 553 km.

**Ex 2.6 Class 7 Maths Question 5. Find:**

**(i) 2.5 × 0.3 (ii) 0.1 × 51.7 (iii) 0.2 × 316.8 (iv) 1.3 × 3.1**

Solution:

(i) 0 2.5 × 0.3

∵ 25 × 3 = 75 and there are 2 digits (1 + 1) right to the decimal points in 2.5 and 0.3.

Thus 2.5 × 0.3 = 0.75

∵ 1 × 517 = 517 and there are two digits (1 + 1) right to the decimal places in 0.1 and 51.7.

(iii) 0.2 × 316.8

∵ 2 × 3168 = 6336 and there are 2 digits (1 + 1) right to the decimal points in 0.2 and 316.8.

Thus 0.2 × 316.8 = 63.36.

(iv) 1.3 × 3.1

∵ 13 × 31 = 403 and there are 2 digits (1 + 1) right to the decimal points in 1.3 and 3.1.

Thus 1.3 × 3.1 – 4.03

(v) 0.5 × 0.05

∵ 5 × 5 = 25 and there are 3 digits (1 + 2) right to the decimal points in 0.5 and 0.05.

Thus 0.5 × 0.05 = 0.025
