  1. 1    
  2. 2    
  3. 4    
  4. 5    

Hint:

We are given the measure of the cloth. It is 50 decimeters. We are asked to find the quantity in meters. For this question, we have to find the relation between decimeters and meters. Once we get the relation we can use the formula to find the required value.

The correct answer is: 5


    The given length of cloth is 50 decimeters. We are asked to find the length in meters.
    To convert the quantity, we must know the relation between them.
    1 meter = 10 decimeters.
    So to find the value if 1 decimeter into meters, we will divide both sides by 10.
    10 ÷ 10 decimeters = 1 ÷ 10 meters
    1 decimeter = 0.1 meters
    To convert 50 decimeters into meters, we will multiply the given quantity by 0.1
    50 decimeters = 50 × 0.1 meters
    = 5 meters
    Therefore, the length into meters is 5.

    For such questions, we must know the relation between different units.
