2.Have you seen frogs? Where? How many different types of frogs have you seen? Are all the frogs of the same length? Here are two interesting examples.
Ans. Yes, I have seen frogs. I have seen them in puddles of water. I have seen two types of frogs; one of them looks green and another looks pale brown. Different frogs are of different lengths.

Gold Frogs
1.This kind of frog is among the smallest in the world. Its length is only 0.9 cm! >- Guess how many such frogs can sit on your little finger!
Ans. I think four of them can sit on my little finger.

Bull Frog
But this is among the biggest frogs. It is as long as 30.5 cm.

1.What does 0.9 cm mean? It is the same as——— millimetres. We can also say this is nine-tenths of a cm. Right?
Ans. 0. 9 cm = 9 mm
Yes, it is nine-tenth of a cm.

2.So 30.5 cm is the same as———-cm and———– millimetres.
Ans. 30.5 cm = 30 cm and 5 millimeter.

3.About how many of the big frogs will fit on the 1 m scale?
Ans. 1 m = 100 cm
If 100 is divided by 30 then we get 3 as quotient and 10 as remainder.

So, it can be said that 3 to 4 such frogs can sit on a 1m scale.

4.If they sit in a straight line about how many of the small frogs will cover 1 m?
Ans. 1 m = 100 cm = 1000 mm
If 1000 is divided by 9 mm then we get 111 as quotient and 1 as remainder. So, it can be said that 111 small frogs will cover 1 m.

Ans. Money received by Mithun = 10 USA Dollar 1 USA Dollar = 39.70
Hence, money received by Mithun = 10 x 39.70

Money spent on school trip = Rs350

= 1000 x ? 10.52 = 1000 x 10 + 1000 x 0.52
= 10000 + 520 = 10520 Rupees
Arun’s father’s salary = 2000 Sri Lankan Rupees

(e)Astha wants some Hong Kong Dollars and Won.
(i)How many Won can she change for Rs 4? For Rs 400?
(ii)How many Hong Kong Dollars can she change for Rs 508?
Ans. (i) 1 Won = Re. 0.04
Hence, 100 Won = 4 (Multiply on both sides by 100)
Hence, Astha gets 100 Won for Rs4
And for Rs400 she gets:
100 x 100 = 10000 Won

(ii) 1HK Dollar = Rs 5.10 Hence, Rs 508 = 508 + 5.10
= 99.61 HK Dollar
