Given :

The volume of petrol filled on Monday $= 40\ L$

The volume of petrol filled on Tuesday $= 50\ L$

To do:

We have to find the money spent on petrol.


Total volume of petrol filled $= (40+50)\ L$

$= 90\ L$

Cost of petrol per litre $= Rs.\ 44$

Money spent on petrol $=$ Volume of petrol $\times$ Rate of petrol

$= Rs.\ 90 \times 44$

$= Rs.\ 3960$.

Therefore, the money spent on petrol is Rs. 3960.
