Solution

From the given details we get to know that

Total distance covered by the vehicle in 2.4litres of petrol =43.2km

Distance covered in one liter of petrol =43.2÷2.4

First, let us convert the decimals into fraction

43.2=43210;2.4=2410

So,43.2÷2.4 =43210÷2410

Taking reciprocal of 2410 and multiplying we get,

=43210×1024=43224=181=18km

Hence, the total distance covered by one litre of petrol is 18km.
