**Question 7:** Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayub went from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much?

**Answer:** Distance travelled by Dinesh `= 7.5 km + 12.7 km = 20.2 km`

Distance travelled by Ayub `= 9.3 km + 11.8 km = 21.1 km`

Now, `21.1 km – 20.2 km = 0.9 km`

Ayub travelled more by 0.9 km or 900 m

Total weight of fruits bought by Sarala `= 4.80 kg + 4.15 kg = 8.95 kg`

Now, `8.95 kg – 8.55 kg = 0.40 kg`

Sarala bought 400 g more fruits than Shyama.
