**Example 1.5**

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.

**Solution**

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

**= 2,41,366**

Adding all the above, the total number of tickets sold on all the 4 days =** 2,41,366**

**Example 1.6**

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.

**Solution**

Number of notebooks in the store = 7,50,000

Number of notebooks sold = 6,25,600

Number of notebooks unsold = __1,24,400__

**Example 1.7**

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.

**Solution**

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

**Example 1.8**

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.
