Solution:

UPQ26-1. *Ben bought a motorcycle for $16 888. What is this amount*

* when rounded **off to the nearest $1000? *

* (1) $16 000 *

* (2) $16 890 *

* (3) $16 900 *

* (4) $17 000*

$17 000

UPQ26-2.* ** Arrange the following fractions in decreasing order.*

* 7/8, 21/6, 1 1/4*

** ** 7/8 = 21/24, 21/6 = 84/24 , 1 1/4 = 30/24

** **In decreasing order

**21/6, 1 1/4 , 7/8**

*,*UPQ26-3. *In which of the following is the digit 8 in the ten thousands*

* place?*

* (1) 249 803*

** (2) 308 942**

** (3) 894 230**

** (4) 483 902**

80 000 => digit 8 in the ten thousands place

* The number is *483 902

UPQ26-4. *Find the value of 8/9 ÷ 10*

*.** (1) 4/45 *

* (2) 9/80*

* (3) 8 8/9*

* (4) 11 1/4** *

* **8/9 ÷** 10*

** ** = 8/9 × 1/10

= 8/90

= 4/45
