# A Loaded Truck Travels 14 Km in 25 Minutes. If the Speed Remains the Same, How Far Can It Travel in 5 Hours? - Mathematics

A loaded truck travels 14 km in 25 minutes. If the speed remains the same, how far can it travel in 5 hours?

#### Solution

Let the distance travelled by the truck in 5 hours be x km.

We know, 1 hour = 60 minutes

∴ 5 hours = (5 × 60) minutes = 300 minutes

The given information in the form of a table is as follows.

 Distance travelled (in km) 14 x Time (in min) 25 300

The distance travelled by the truck and the time taken by the truck are directly proportional to each other. Therefore,

14/25 =x/300

x = (14xx300)/25 = 168

Hence, the distance travelled by the truck is 168 km.
