Given:

A vehicle covers a distance of 43.2 km in 2.4 litres of petrol.

To do: 

We have to find the distance covered in 1 litre of petrol.

Solution:

Distance covered in $2.4$ litres of petrol $=43.2\ km$

Distance covered in $1$ litre of petrol $=\frac{43.2}{2.4}$

$=\frac{432}{10}\times\frac{10}{24}$

$=18\ km$

Thus, it covers a distance of $18\ km$ in $1$ litre of petrol.
