Ex 11.1, 7 Suppose 2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 10^6 crystals. How many sugar crystals are there in (i) 5 kg of sugar?Given,
2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 10^6 crystals
Let 5 kg of sugar contains y crystals.
Thus, our table looks like
As quantity of sugar increases,
the number of crystals also increases.
∴ Quantity of Sugar and Number of Crystals are in direct proportion.
𝟐/(𝟗 × 〖𝟏𝟎〗^𝟔 ) = 𝟓/𝒚
𝑦 × 2 = 5 × 9 × 106
𝑦 × 2 = 45 × 106
𝒚 = 𝟒𝟓/𝟐 × 106
𝑦 = 22.5 × 106
𝑦 = 2.25 × 101 × 106
𝑦 = 2.25 × 101+6
𝒚 = 2.25 × 107
∴ 5kg of sugar contains 2.25 × 107 crystals
Ex 11.1, 7 Suppose 2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 10^6 crystals. How many sugar crystals are there in (ii) 1.2 kg of sugar?Given,
2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 10^6 crystals
Let 1.2 kg of sugar contains y crystals.
Thus, our table looks like
Since
Quantity of Sugar and Number of Crystals are in direct proportion.
𝟐/(𝟗 × 〖𝟏𝟎〗^𝟔 ) = (𝟏.𝟐)/𝒚
𝑦 × 2 = 1.2 × 9 × 106
𝑦 × 2 = 12/10 × 9 × 106
𝒚 = 𝟏/𝟐 × 𝟏𝟐/𝟏𝟎 × 9 × 106
𝑦 = 6/10 × 9 × 106
𝑦 = 54/10 × 106
𝒚 = 5.4 × 106
∴ 1.2 kg of sugar contains 5.4 × 106 crystals
