# A car travels 200 km in 4 hours. How long will it take to travel 500 km?

**Given: **A car travels 200 km in 4 hours.

** **

**
**

**To do: **Find how much time it will take for the car to travel 500km

**
**

** **

**Solution:**

**
**

$Speed = \frac{Distance}{ Time}$

$Speed = \frac{200}{4} = 50$

Speed of car = $50$ km / hr

Which means car can cover 50 km in 1 hr.

$Time \ taken = \frac{Distance}{speed}$

Time taken to cover 500 km = $\frac{500}{50}$ = ** **$10$

Time = $10$ hr

**So, it can cover $500$ km in $10$ hr**
