Let the distance travelled by the truck in 5 hours be x km.

We know, 1 hour = 60 minutes

∴ 5 hours = (5 × 60) minutes = 300 minutes

The given information in the form of a table is as follows.

Distance travelled (in km)14x
Time (in min)25300

The distance travelled by the truck and the time taken by the truck are directly proportional to each other. Therefore,

14/25 = xx/300

x = (14 x 300)/25 = 168

Hence, the distance travelled by the truck is 168 km.
