**Ex 8.6 Class 6 Maths Question 5. Tina had 20 m 5 cm long cloth. She cuts 4 m 50 cm length
of cloth from this for making a curtain. How much cloth is left with her?**

**Answer**

Length of cloth = 20 m 5 cm

Length of cloth to make a curtain = 4 m 50 cm

= 4.50 m

Length of cloth left with Tina will be the difference of these two

Thus length of cloth left with her is

20.05

– 4.50

________

15.55

________

**Ex 8.6 Class 6 Maths Question 6. Namita travels 20 km 50 m every day. Out of this she travels
10 km 200 m by bus and the rest by auto. How much distance does she travel by auto?**

**Answer**

Total distance travelled by Namita = 20 km 50 m

Distance travelled by auto = Total distance travelled – Distance travelled by bus

Therefore Distance to be travelled by auto is

20.050

– 10.200

_______

9.850

_______

Therefore Namita travelled 9.850 km by auto

**Ex 8.6 Class 6 Maths Question 7. Aakash bought vegetables weighing 10 kg. Out of this, 3 kg 500 g is onions, 2 kg 75 g is tomatoes and the rest is potatoes. What is the weight of the potatoes?**

**Answer**

Total weight of vegetables Aakash bought = 10.000 kg

Weight of onions = 3 kg 500 g

Weight of tomatoes = 2 kg 75 g

= 2.075 kg

Weight of potatoes = Total weight of vegetables bought – (weight of onions + weight of tomatoes)

= 10.000 – (3.500 + 2.075)

3.500

+ 2.075

_______

5.575

_______

10.000

– 5.575

_______

4.425

_______

Therefore 4.425 kg is the weight of the potatoes
