# Q 10. A loaded truck travels 14 km in 25 minutes. If the speed remains the same, how far can it travel in 5 hours?

If the speed of the truck remains the same, then we can say that the distance travelled by the truck is directly proportional to the time.

After taking 5 hours the truck will travel a distance of let say 'x';

Hence we obtain the relation:

$\frac{14km}{25minutes}=\frac{x}{5\times60minutes }$

$x=\frac{14km\times 5\times60minutes}{25minutes}=168km$;

thus the truck would travel a distance of 168km in 5 hours.
