Question 8.

A post office functions from 10 a.m. to 5.45 p.m. with a lunch break of 1 hour. If the post office works for 6 days a week, find the total duration of working hours in a week.

Solution:

Working hours in a day = 6 hrs 45 min

= (6 × 60 min) + 45 min

= (360 + 45) min

= 405 min

Total duration of working hours in a week

= 6 × 405 min

= 2430 min

= \(\frac{2430}{60}\)

= \(\frac{810}{20}\)

= 40 \(\frac{1}{2}\)

= 40 hours 30 minutes

Question 9.

Seetha wakes up at 5.20 a.m. She spends 35 minutes to get ready and travels 15 minutes to reach the railway station. If the train departs exactly at 6.00 am, will Seetha catch the train?

Solution:

No, Seetha will not catch the train

Time at Seetha wakes up = 5.20 am

Time is taken for getting ready = 35 min

Travelling time to station = 15 min

Reporting time = 5.20 am + 50 min = 6.10 am

But, the train departs exactly at 6.00 am

So, Seetha will not catch the train.
