# A Truck Consumes 28 Litres of Diesel for Moving Through a Distance of 448 Km. How Much Distance Will It Cover in 64 Litres of Diesel? - Mathematics

Sum

A truck consumes 28 litres of diesel for moving through a distance of 448 km. How much distance will it cover in 64 litres of diesel?

#### Solution

Let the truck cover x in 64 litres of diesel.

 Diesel (in litres) 28 64 Distance (in km) 448 x

It is the case of direct variation

⇒"x"_1/"y"_1="x"_2/"y"_2

⇒28/448=64/"x"

i.e., 28x = 64 × 448

"x"=(64xx448)/28

= 1024 km
