A car covers 20 km using 1 L of petrol. Find the distance it can cover using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L of petrol.


Given: A car covers 20 km using 1 L of petrol.

To find: Here we have to find how much distance car can cover using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L of petrol.

Solution:

$5\frac{1}{5}\ =\ \frac{26}{5}$

Now,

Distance covered by car using 1 L petrol = 20 km

So,

Distance covered by car using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L petrol = 20 $\times\ \frac{26}{5}$ km

Distance covered by car using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L petrol = 4 $\times$26 km

Distance covered by car using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L petrol = 104 km

So, distance covered by car using $5\frac{1}{5}$ L petrol is 104 km.
