* Conversion between Metre and Centimeter

1 metre\[~=\text{1}\times \text{1}00=\text{1}00\] centimeters

2 meters\[=\text{2}\times \text{1}00=\text{2}00\] centimeters

100 meters\[=\text{1}00\times \text{1}00=\text{1}0000\]centimeters

 

 

Convert 450 meters into centimeters.

(a) 45000cm                                       

(b) 4500cm

(c) 2550cm                                         

(d) 35500cm

 

Answer (a)

Explanations

1 m = 100 cm hence, 450 m = 45000 cm

 

 

What will be the 10thpart of a line segment of length 50 cm?

(a) 4cm                                                

(b) 5cm

(c) 2cm                                                

(d) 3cm

 

Answer (b)

Explanations

\[\text{1}{{0}^{\text{th}}}\]part of 50 cm\[=\frac{50}{10}=5\,cm\].

 

 

* Conversion between Kilometer and Metre

1 kilometer\[=\text{1}\times \text{1}000=\text{1}000\]meters

2 kilometers\[=\text{2}\times \text{1}000=\text{2}000\] meters

100 kilometers\[=\text{1}00\times \text{1}000=\text{1}00000\]meters

 

 

Convert 9 km 500 m in meters.

(a) 8400 meters                                               

(b) 9500 meters

(c) 7900 meters                                

(d) 8800 meters

 

Answer (b)

Explanations

9 km 500 m \[=(\text{9}\times \text{1}000+\text{5}00)\text{m}\] = 9500 m

 

 

A travels a distance of 56 km and B travels a distance of 39 km. Who travels the longer distance and by how much?

(a) A by 17 km                                  
(b) A by 19 km

(c) B by 19 km                                   

(d) A by 20 km

 

Answer (a)

Explanations

Since 56 > 39 and\[\text{56}-\text{39}=\text{17}\]. Therefore, A travels longer distance by 17 km.
