Q1 Fill in the blanks:

(a) 1 lakh = _______ ten thousand.

(b) 1 million = _______ hundred thousand.

(c) 1 crore = _______ ten lakh.

(d) 1 crore = _______ million.

(e) 1 million = _______ lakh.

Let us take this as a physical world problem:

You went to a shop and you bought a toy of Rs. 100. You checked your pocket and found many notes but of only Rs.10

How many Rs.10 notes will you give to shopkeeper:

Well, it’s simple.

You will pay 10 notes.

How?

100/10 =10

The similar easy approach can be done in all the blanks,

Hint: Always remember to keep your eyes on a number of zeros

(a)1 lakh= 100000

1thousand= 1000

Ten thousand= 10*1000 = 10000

Therefore,

1 lakh/ 10 thousand =100000/10000 =10

So, 1lakh= 10 ten thousand

(b) 1 million= 1000000

1thousand= 1000

Hundred thousand= 100*1000 = 100000

Therefore,

1 million/ hundred thousand =1000000/100000 =10

So, 1milion= 10 hundred thousand

(c) 1 crore= 10000000 (7 zeros)

1lakh= 100000 (5 zeros)

Ten lakh= 10*1000 = 1000000( 6 zeros)

Therefore,

1 crore/ Ten lakh=10000000/1000000 =10

So, 1 crore= 10 Ten lakh

(d)1 crore= 10000000 (7 zeros)

1million= 100000 (6 zeros)

Therefore,

1 crore/ 1million=10000000/1000000 =10

So, 1 crore= 10 million

(e) 1 million= 1000000

1lakh= 100000

Therefore,

1million/ 10 lakh = 1000000/100000 =10

So, 1 million= 10 lakhs

See, all answers came out to be 10 but not everytime

Q2 Place commas correctly and write the numerals:

(b) Nine crore five lakh forty one.

(c) Seven crore fifty two lakh twenty one thousand three hundred two.

(d) Fifty eight million four hundred twenty three thousand two hundred two.

(e) Twenty three lakh thirty thousand ten.
