Question 4: Nasreen bought 3 m 20 cm cloth for her shirt and 2 m 5 cm cloth for her trouser. Find the total length of cloth bought by her.
Answer:

Length of cloth brought by Nasreen for her shirt = 3 m 20 cm (3.2 m)
Length of cloth brought by Nasreen for her trouser = 2 m 5 cm (2.05 m)
Total length of cloth brought by Nasreen = ?

= Length of cloth brought by Nasreen for her shirt + Length of cloth brought by Nasreen for her trouser
= 3.2 m + 2.05 m

Answer:

Distance travelled by Sunita by bus = 15 km 268 m (15.268 km)
Distance travelled by Sunita by car = 7 km 7 m (7.007 km)
Distance travelled by Sunita on foot = 500 m (0.500 km)
Distance between her house and school = ?

= Distance travelled by Sunita by bus + Distance travelled by Sunita by car + Distance travelled by Sunita on foot
= 15.268 km + 7.007 km + 0.500 km
= 22.775 km

Therefore, the total distance between her house and school is 22.775 km.
