(n) \(\frac { 4 }{ 3 }\) – \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)
Solution:
(a) \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 7 }\)
We have:
\(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac{2 \times 7}{3 \times 7}\) = \(\frac { 14 }{ 21 }\) [∵ LCM of 3 and 7 = 21]
\(\frac { 1 }{ 7 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 3}{7 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 21 }\)
Now, \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 7 }\) = \(\frac { 14 }{ 21 }\) + \(\frac { 3 }{ 21 }\) = \(\frac { 14 + 3 }{ 21 }\) = \(\frac { 17 }{ 21 }\)

(b) \(\frac { 3 }{ 10 }\) + \(\frac { 7 }{ 15 }\)
We have:
\(\frac { 3 }{ 10 }\) = \(\frac{3 \times 3}{10 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 9 }{ 30 }\) [∵ LCM of 10 and 15 = 30]
\(\frac { 7 }{ 15 }\) = \(\frac{7 \times 2}{15 \times 2}\) = \(\frac { 14 }{ 30 }\)
Now, \(\frac { 3 }{ 10 }\) + \(\frac { 7 }{ 15 }\) = \(\frac { 9 }{ 10 }\) + \(\frac { 14 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 9 + 14 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 23 }{ 30 }\)

(c) \(\frac { 4 }{ 9 }\) + \(\frac { 2 }{ 7 }\)
We have:
\(\frac { 4 }{ 9 }\) = \(\frac{4 \times 7}{9 \times 7}\) = \(\frac { 28 }{ 63 }\) [∵ LCM of 9 and 7 = 63]
\(\frac { 7 }{ 15 }\) = \(\frac{2 \times 9}{7 \times 9}\) = \(\frac { 19 }{ 63 }\)
Now, \(\frac { 4 }{ 9 }\) + \(\frac { 2 }{ 7 }\) = \(\frac { 28 }{ 63 }\) + \(\frac { 18 }{ 63 }\) = \(\frac { 28 + 8 }{ 63 }\) = \(\frac { 46 }{ 63 }\)

(d) \(\frac { 5 }{ 7 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\)
We have:
\(\frac { 5 }{ 7 }\) = \(\frac{5 \times 3}{7 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 15 }{ 21 }\) [∵ LCM of 7 and 3 = 21]
\(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 7}{3 \times 7}\) = \(\frac { 7 }{ 21 }\)
Now, \(\frac { 5 }{ 7 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 15 }{ 21 }\) + \(\frac { 7 }{ 21 }\) = \(\frac { 15 + 7 }{ 21 }\) = \(\frac { 22 }{ 21 }\) GSEB Solutions Class 6 Maths Chapter 7 Fractions Ex 7.6 img 1

\(\frac { 1 }{ 6 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 5}{6 \times 5}\) = \(\frac { 5 }{ 30 }\)
Now, \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 6 }\) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 30 }\) + \(\frac { 5 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 12 + 5 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 17 }{ 30 }\)

(f) \(\frac { 4 }{ 5 }\) + \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\)
We have:
\(\frac { 4 }{ 5 }\) = \(\frac{4 \times 3}{5 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 15 }\) [∵ LCM of 5 and 3 = 15]

∴ 4\(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\) + 3\(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 14 }{ 3 }\) + \(\frac { 13 }{ 4 }\)
\(\frac { 14 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac{14 \times 4}{3 \times 4}\) = \(\frac { 56 }{ 12 }\)
and \(\frac { 13 }{ 4 }\) = = \(\frac{13 \times 3}{4 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 39 }{ 12 }\)
∴ \(\frac { 14 }{ 3 }\) + \(\frac { 13 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 56 }{ 12 }\) + \(\frac { 39 }{ 12 }\)
= \(\frac{56+39}{12}\) = \(\frac { 95 }{ 12 }\) = 7 \(\frac { 11 }{ 12 }\)

and \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) – \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 6 }\) – \(\frac { 2 }{ 6 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 6 }\)
Again, \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 4}{3 \times 4}\) = \(\frac { 4 }{ 12 }\) and \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 3}{4 \times 3}\) = \(\frac { 3 }{ 12 }\) [∵ LCM of 3 and 4 = 12]
∴ \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 4 }{ 12 }\) + \(\frac { 3 }{ 12 }\) = \(\frac { 7 }{ 12 }\)
and \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) – \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 4 }{ 12 }\) – \(\frac { 3 }{ 12 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 12 }\)
Again, we have \(\frac { 1 }{ 6 }\) + \(\frac { 1 }{ 12 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) and \(\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\) – \(\frac { 7 }{ 12 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\)

Question 6.
A piece of wire \(\frac { 7 }{ 8 }\) metre long broke into two pieces. One-piece was \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) metre long. How long is the other piece?
Solution:
Length of the original piece of wire = \(\frac { 7 }{ 8 }\) m As it is broken into two pieces, and one of the parts is \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) m,
∴ Length of the other part = GSEB Solutions Class 6 Maths Chapter 7 Fractions Ex 7.6 img 18 m
Since, \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac{1 \times 2}{4 \times 2}\) = \(\frac { 2 }{ 8 }\)
∴ \(\frac { 7 }{ 8 }\) – \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac { 7 }{ 8 }\) – \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\)
GSEB Solutions Class 6 Maths Chapter 7 Fractions Ex 7.6 img 18 m = \(\frac { 7 }{ 8 }\)m

Question 8.
Asha and Samuel have bookshelves of the same size partly filled with books. Asha s shelf is \(\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\) the full and Samuel’s shelf is \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\) the full. Whose bookshelf is more full and by what fraction?
Solution:
‘ Portion of Asha’s shelf full of books = \(\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\)
Portion of Samuel’s shelf full of books = \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\)
Changing the fraction into equivalent fractions having the same denominator.
We have: \(\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\) = \(\frac{5 \times 5}{6 \times 5}\) = \(\frac { 25 }{ 30 }\) and \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\) = \(\frac{2 \times 6}{5 \times 6}\) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 30 }\) [ ∵ HCF of 5 and 6 is 30]
Obviously, portion of Asha’s shelf is more full.
Now, \(\frac { 25 }{ 30 }\) – \(\frac { 12 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 25 – 12 }{ 30 }\) = \(\frac { 13 }{ 30 }\)
∴ Fraction by which Asha’s shelf is more full = \(\frac { 13 }{ 30 }\)

Question 9.
Jaidev takes 2 \(\frac { 1 }{ 5 }\) minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes \(\frac { 7 }{ 4 }\) minutes to do the same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?
Solution:
To walk across the school ground:
Time taken by Jaidev = 2 \(\frac { 1 }{ 5 }\) minutes
Time taken by Rahul = \(\frac { 7 }{ 4 }\) minutes
We have,
2 \(\frac { 1 }{ 5 }\) = \(\frac { 11 }{ 5 }\) = \(\frac{11 \times 4}{5 \times 4}\) = \(\frac { 44 }{ 20 }\)
[∵ LCM of 4 and 5 = 20]
Also
Obviously, Rahul takes less time.
Now, \(\frac { 7 }{ 4 }\) = \(\frac{7 \times 5}{4 \times 5}\) = \(\frac { 35 }{ 20 }\)
∴ 2 \(\frac { 1 }{ 5 }\) minutes – \(\frac { 7 }{ 4 }\) minutes = \(\frac { 9 }{ 20 }\) minutes
Thus, Rahul takes \(\frac { 9 }{ 20 }\) minutes less time.
