The chapter **“****Jugs and Mugs****” **is **Chapter 10** from **Merry Math III **for students of** Class 3rd** of **JKBOSE**. In a previous post, you read about **Play with Patterns Class 3rd Math Solutions**. The particular post is about **Jugs and Mugs Class 3rd Math Solutions****.** Let’s get started:

**Jugs and Mugs Class 3rd Math Solutions **

**Wedding in Bunny’s Family**

There is a wedding in Bunny’s family,a family of rabbits. Many guests are invited — deer, monkeys, elephants, cats, dogs, mice, foxes, camels, mongoose etc. A special drink is served to all the guests — one glass each. Everyone finds the drink very tasty but some small guests like, _________ , _________ cannot finish a full glass. But _________ is able to finish his glass.

Some others like _________ , _________ , _________ ask for more than one glass.

Now the trouble begins !!!

There are some big guests who go on gulping down glass after glass…!

Bunny wants to guess who drank how much.

Help him fill the table. Have fun!

Drank how much | Name of guest |
---|---|

Less than 1 glass | Mice, Foxes, Mongoose |

Between 1-5 glasses | Cat, Dog, Monkey |

Between 5-10 glasses | Deer, |

More than 10 glasses | Elephants, Camels |

**Water In, Water Out?**

**Have you ever thought like Laddu?**

**About how many glasses of water do you drink in a day?**

**Summer day: ________glasses**

**Winter day: ________glasses**

Ans. Summer Day: 9-12 glasses of water

Winter day: 7-8 glasses of water

**Can you guess how much water goes out of you?**

Ans. I think half of the water I drink goes out of my body,

**Match the Right Pairs**

Ans.

**Whose Jug Holds More?**

**What are Naima and Jeetu doing?**

Ans. They are filling their jugs with water.

If Naima pours one glass of water into her jug, it looks like this:

**Naima thinks she will have to pour around 3 glasses of water to fill the jug. What do you think?**

Ans. I think she is right. She will have to pour around 3 glasses of water to fill the jug.

**If Jeetu pours one glass of water in his jug, it looks like this:**

**Whose jug holds more water?**

Ans. Jeetu’s jug holds more water.

**How many glasses of water do you think Jeetu should pour to fill his jug?**

Ans. Jeetu should pour four glasses of water to fill his jug.

**If Jeetu pours one more glass of water, his jug will be around full.**

No, Jeetu’s jug will not be around full. It will be around half-filled.

**Filling Pots**

Naseem and Abdul had to fill their pots each with water. Both pots were equally big and heavy. So, they went to the tap again and again, filled their own bottles and poured water into the pots.

Naseem had to fill her bottle 16 times from the tap. But Abdul had to fill his bottle only 8 times.

**Why did Naseem go more times than Abdul?**

Ans. Because Abdul’s bottle can hold more water than Naseem’s.

**Naseem’s bottle can hold (twice/half/three times) as much water as Abdul’s bottle.**

Ans. Naseem’s bottle can hold half as much water as Abdul’s bottle.

**How Many Glasses?**

**Pot B holds 11 glassfuls of water. Pot A holds twice as much water as pot B. How many glasses of water are needed to fill pot A?**

Ans. Number of glassfuls of water pot B holds = 11

Pot A holds twice as much water as pot B.

Number of glassfuls of water pot A holds: 11 x 2 = 22

Thus, 22 glasses of water are needed to fill pot A.

**Filling Potholes**

This is a small town near Kohima. There are some potholes in the road. Before the rains come, children want to fill the holes with pebbles. They bring pebbles in mugs of the same size.

Hole A gets filled with 9 mugs of pebbles.

Hole B gets filled with 18 mugs of pebbles.

Hole C gets filled with 12 mugs of pebbles

**Mark A, B, C on the right hole in the picture.**

**Which is the biggest pothole?**

Ans. The biggest pothole is B.

**If jugs are used, hole A gets filled with 5 jugs. How many jugs of pebbles are needed to fill hole B?**

Pothole B needs twice the number of pebbles than pothole A.

So, if A gets filled with 5 jugs, B will need 10 jugs of pebbles to fill.
