Use of Large Numbers in Daily Life Situations
We know to apply four basic operations on numbers. We will see a few more examples which deal with the four operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
In an exhibition, the number of tickets sold on the first, second, third and fourth days are 1,10,000, 75,060, 25,700 and 30,606 respectively. Find the total number of tickets sold on all the 4 days.
Number of tickets sold on the first day = 1,10,000
Number of tickets sold on the second day = 75,060
Number of tickets sold on the third day = 25,700
Number of tickets sold on the fourth day = 30,606
Adding all the above, the total number of tickets sold on all the 4 days = 2,41,366
In a year, a whole-sale paper firm sold 6,25,600 notebooks out of 7,50,000 notebooks.
Find the number of notebooks left unsold.
Number of notebooks in the store = 7,50,000
Number of notebooks sold = 6,25,600
Number of notebooks unsold = 1,24,400
In a mobile store, the number of mobiles sold during a month is 1250. Assuming that the same number of mobiles are sold every month, find the number of mobiles sold in 2 years.
Number of mobiles sold in 1 month = 1250
1 year = 12 months
2 years = 2 × 12
= 24 months
Number of mobiles sold in 24 months = 1250 × 24= 30,000
Number of mobiles sold in 2 years = 30,000
If ₹ 10,00,000 was distributed in a Government scheme to 500 women in the Self Help Groups, then find the amount given to each woman.
Amount to be given to 500 women = ₹ 10,00,000
Amount given to each woman = 10,00,000 ÷ 500 = ₹ 2000
Each woman in the Self Help Group was given ₹ 2000.
