A loaded truck travels 14 km in 25 minutes. If the speed remains the same, how far can it travel in 5 hours?
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,
`x = (14xx300)/25 = 168`
Hence, the distance travelled by the truck is 168 km.
