Notes : We know that when a decimal number is multiplied by 10, 100, 1000, the decimal point in the product is shifted to the right by as many places as there are zeroes.

Question 4

A two-wheeler covers a distance of 55.3 km in one litre of petrol. How much distance will it cover in 10 litres of petrol?

Sol :

Distance covered in 1 litre of petrol = 55.3 km

Distance covered in 10 litre of petrol = 553 km

Therefore, it will cover 553 km distance in 10 litre petrol.
