A truck travelling at 70 kilometres per hour uses 30% more diesel to travel a certain distance than it does when it travels at the speed of 50 kilometres per hour. If the truck can travel 19.5 kilometres on a litre of diesel at 50 kilometres per hour, how far can the truck travel on 10 litres of diesel at a speed of 70 kilometres per hour?
If the truck is being driven at 70 kmph, it takes 1.3 liters of diesel to travel 19.5 km.
Therefore, with 10 liters of diesel, the truck can travel 10/1.3 * 19.5 km = 150 km.
