Question 1:

Filling Pots Naseem and Abdul had to fill their pots each with water. Both pots were equally big and heavy. So they went to the tap again and again, filled their own bottles and poured water into the pots.

Naseem had to fill her bottle 16 times from the tap. But Abdul had to fill his bottle only 8 times. • Why did Naseem go more times than Abdul? • Naseem’s bottle can hold _____________ (twice/half/three times) as much water as Abdul’s bottle.

Answer:

• Naseem had to go more times than Abdul because her bottle is smaller than Abdul’s bottle.

• Naseem’s bottle can hold half as much water as Abdul’s bottle.

Question 2:

How Many Glasses?

Question 1:

Filling Potholes This is a small town near Kohima. There are some potholes in the road. Before the rains come, children want to fill the holes with pebbles. They bring pebbles in mugs of the same size. Hole A gets filled with 9 mugs of pebbles. Hole B gets filled with 18 mugs of pebbles. Hole C gets filled with 12 mugs of pebbles.

• Mark A, B, C on the right hole in the picture. • Which is the biggest pothole? _____________ • If jugs are used, hole A gets filled with 5 jugs. How many jugs of pebbles are needed to fill hole B? ____________

Answer:

• Pothole B is the biggest pothole.

• 9 mugs of pebbles fill the hole A whereas only 5 jugs are required to fill hole A.

⇒Capacity of 9 mugs = Capacity of 5 jugs So, if we have to fill hole B, then the number of mugs required = 18 = 2

×9 So, number of jugs required to fill pothole B = 2

×5 = 10 Thus, 10 jugs are required to fill hole B.
