Solution

## The correct option is B 18.1 km We can either convert the fractions to decimals before calculation or after calculation. Method 1 : - Distance travelled by bus = 225 out of 452 km Distance left to be covered by train = 452 - 225 = 22510 - 4410 = 18110 = 18.1 km in decimal Method 2 : - Distance travelled by bus = 225 km = 4.4 km out of 452 = 22.5 km Distance left to be covered by train = 22.5 - 4.4 = 18.1 km
