**Ricky had a rickshaw, that wobbled quite a lot. All because of the rickety wheel that Ricky’s rickshaw had got. Ricky oiled the chain and tried again. Off fell a screw – Oh ! What a pain ! He pumped up the tyres and fixed the fuse wires. But Ricky’s rickshaw was really a hopeless case, it still didn’t get him from here to any other place.

**Answers :**

**1. 3/4 = 0.75 = 75%**

**2. 50 – (50 / 100 x 20 = 10) = 40**

**3. 20 / 2.5 = 20 hours**

**4. 5000 – (50 x 4 = 200) = 4 800 mls**

**5. One part = 770 / 7 = 110 therefore, 110 : 220 : 440**

**6. 7 / 5 = 1.4 km**

**7. 6 x 5 x 60 = 1800 turns**

**8. 5 (75 x 1000 / 250 = 300) = 1500**

**9. 5 (35 / 0.2 = 175) = 875 stones**
