Given:

Sunita travelled 15 km 268 m by bus, 7 km 7 m by car and 500 m on foot in order to reach her school.

To do:

We have to find the total distance between her school and residence.

Solution:

We know that,

$1\ km=1000\ m$

Therefore, 

The distance travelled by Sunita by bus $=15\ km\ 268\ m$

$= (15 + \frac{268}{1000})\ km$

$=(15+0.268)\ km$

$= 15.268\ km$

The distance travelled by Sunita by car $= 7\ km\ 7\ m$

$= (7 + \frac{7}{1000})\ km$

$=(7+0.007)\ km$

$= 7.007\ km$

The distance travelled by Sunita on foot $= 500\ m$

$= (\frac{500}{1000})\ km$

$=(0.5)\ km$

$= 0.5\ km$

The total distance between her school and residence is,

  $15.268$

$+7.007$

$+0.500$

-----------

 $22.775$

-----------

The total distance between her school and residence is $22.775\ km$.
