Maharashtra Board Class 6 Maths Solutions Chapter 4 Operations on Fractions Practice Set 11 1
Solution:
(1) Each unit is divided in 6 parts
A is 5th division from 0
∴ \(A=\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\)

B is 10th division from 0
∴ \(B=\frac { 10 }{ 6 }\)

(2) Each unit is divided in 5 parts
A is 3rd division from 0
∴ \(A=\frac { 3 }{ 5 }\)

B is 7th division from 0
∴ \(B=\frac { 7 }{ 5 }\)

(3) Each unit is divided in 7 parts
A is 10th division from 0
∴ \(A=\frac { 10 }{ 7 }\)

B is 3rd division from 0
∴ \(B=\frac { 3 }{ 7 }\)

Question 1.
If we want to show the fractions \(\frac{3}{10}, \frac{9}{20}, \frac{19}{40}\) on the number line, how big should the unit be? (Textbook pg. no. 24)
Solution:
The denominators of the given fractions are not equal.
The numbers in the denominators 10, 20 and 40 have common multiple 40.
∴ Making the denominators equal, we get
