Dear Student

It is given that the car travels 14 km in 25 minutes.

Now, assume that the distance the car can travel in 5 hours be x.

Since 1 hour = 60 minutes, 5 hours = 300 minutes.

Thus, the two given statements are

14 km in 25 minutes

And, x km in 300 minutes
We know that the distance travelled by car and the time taken by the car is directly proportional to each other.

So,

14/25 = x/300

x = 168 km.

Thanks
