If the weight of 5 sheets of paper is 20 grams, how many sheets of the same paper would weigh 1 kg?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 2nd Sep, 2015, 01:20: PM
It is clear that the number of sheets and their corresponding weight vary directly.
Also 1 kg = 1000 grams.
Writing the information in the table, we have
Number of sheets
Weight (in grams)
Now, in case of direct variation the ratio remains constant, so we have
Hence, number of sheets are 250.
