The town newspaper is published everyday. One copy has 12 pages. Everyday 11,980 copies are printed. How many pages are in all printed everyday? Every month?
We use the unitary method to find the value of the other quantity if one quantity is known.
Answer: If one copy of a newspaper has 12 pages and 11,980 copies are printed everyday, then, 1,43,760 pages are printed in a day and 4,312,800 pages in a printed in a month.
Let us solve the question with the help of unitary method.
Number of pages in one copy = 12
Number of pages, printed in a day, in 11,980 copies = 12 × 11980 = 1,43,760
Since 1,43,760 pages are printed in one day, so let's find the number of pages printed in a month:
= 143760 × 30 = 4,312,800 (since 1 month = 30 days)
