Question:

A taxi charges a fare of Rs 2550 for a journey of 150 km. How much would it charge for a journey of 124 km?

Solution:

Let the charge for a journey of 124 km be ₹x.

Price(in ₹)2550x
Distance(in km)150124

More is the distance travelled, more will be the price.

So, it is a case of direct proportion.

$\therefore \frac{2550}{150}=\frac{x}{124}$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{2550 \times 124}{150}=2108$

 

Thus, the taxi charges ₹2,108 for the distance of 124 km.
