Dear student,

Petrol is consumed on the basis of distance covered. First find the distance covered by both the cars.

Use distance= speed*time

distance travelled by car A = distance travelled by car B = 400Km

petrol required to travel X km = 1L for car A

pertrol required to travel X+5 km = 1L for car b

1L = X+5 km

1km = 1/ X+5

petrol required for B to travel 400km = 400/X+5

petrol required for A to travel 400km = 400/X

given that

400/X - 4 = 400/X+5

(400-4X)/X = 400/ X+5

(400-4X)(X+5) = 400 X -----------------------BY CROSS MULTIPLICATION

now solve the equation, you will get two answers .

the negative answer is omitted and the positive answer is taken as the petrol consumed by car A

add 4 to it and you will get the petrol consumed by car B
