Solution:

Given distance covered by vehicle in 2.4 litres of petrol is = 43.2 km

Distance travel by vehicle in 1 litre of petrol = 43.2/2.4

Multiply both numerator and denominator by 10 then we get 432/24

On dividing Therefore 18km can travel in 1litre of petrol.

10. The total weight of some bags of wheat is 1743 kg. If each bag weighs 49.8 kg, how many bags are there?

Solution:

Given total weight of total bags = 1743 kg

Each bag weighs = 49.8 kg

Number of bags = 1743/49.8

Multiply both numerator and denominator by 10 then we get 17430/498

On dividing Therefore number of bags are 35
