00:00:01.360 --> 00:00:05.920
A car uses 10 liters of fuel to travel 50 kilometers.
00:00:06.610 --> 00:00:11.330
What is the carâ€™s fuel consumption rate in liters per kilometer?
00:00:12.650 --> 00:00:18.880
We are told in the question the car uses 10 liters of fuel and travels 50 kilometers.
00:00:19.880 --> 00:00:30.040
As the fuel consumption rate is measured in liters per kilometer, we need to calculate the number of liters of fuel required to travel one kilometer.
00:00:31.290 --> 00:00:38.960
When dealing with equivalent fractions, we must multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number.
00:00:39.560 --> 00:00:45.120
In this case, 50 kilometers divided by 50 is equal to one kilometer.
00:00:46.240 --> 00:00:49.530
This means we need to divide the numerator by 50.
00:00:50.740 --> 00:00:54.770
10 divided by 50 can be written as a fraction as shown.
00:00:55.680 --> 00:00:58.320
The top and bottom are divisible by 10.
00:00:58.630 --> 00:01:01.050
So this is equivalent to one-fifth.
00:01:01.980 --> 00:01:06.270
One-fifth is the same as the decimal 0.2.
00:01:07.140 --> 00:01:12.830
This means that the car will use 0.2 liters to travel one kilometer.
00:01:14.170 --> 00:01:20.070
The fuel consumption rate can be written as 0.2 liters per kilometer.
