6. A vehicle covers a distance of 43.2 km in 2.4 litres of petrol. How much distance will it cover in one litre of petrol?

**Answer**

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

Distance covered in 1 litre of petrol = 43.2 ÷ 2.4

= (432/10) ÷ (24/10)

= (432/10) × (10/24)

= (432 × 10)/ (10 × 24)

= (36 × 1)/ (1 × 2)

= (18 × 1)/ (1 × 1)

= 18 km

∴ Total distance covered in 1 liter of petrol is 18 km.
