# Which of the drawing (a) to (d) show:

i) 2 × 1/5

ii) 2 × 1/2

iii) 3 × 2/3

iv) 3 × 1/4

**Solution:**

Matching can be easily done by comparing the fractions and shaded areas.

i) 2 × 1/5 matches with (d) since two circles are divided into five parts and one part of both the circles is shaded.

2 × 1/5 = 1/5 + 1/5 = 2/5

ii) 2 × 1/2 matches with (b) as one-half of both the drawings is shaded.

2 × 1/2 = 1/2 + 1/2 = 2/2 = 1

iii) 3 × 2/3 matches with (a) since two third of the three circles is shaded.

3 × 2/3 = 2/3 + 2/3 + 2/3 = 6/3 = 2

iv) 3 × 1/4 matches with (c) since one fourth of three squares is shaded.

3 × 1/4 = 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 3/4

### NCERT Solutions Class 7 Maths - Chapter 2 Exercise 2.2 Question 1

Which of the drawing (a) to (d) show: i) 2 × 1/5 ii) 2 × 1/2 iii) 3 × 2/3 iv) 3 × 1/4

(i) 2/5 matches with option d since 2 out 5 parts of the circle are shaded in it; (ii) 1 matches with option b, since one-half of both its drawings are shaded; (iii) 2 matches with option a since 2/3rd of all three drawings are shaded; (iv) 3/4 matches with option c since 1/4th of all three squares are shaded
