    Answer:

    \boxed {\boxed {\sf 596.4 \ kilometers}}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s create a proportion using this setup.

    \frac {liters}{kilometers} = \frac{liters}{kilometers}

    We know that 25 liters are used for 355 kilometers.

    \frac {25 \ liters}{355 \ kilometers} = \frac{liters}{kilometers}

    We don’t know how many kilometers are used with 42 liters. Therefore we say x kilometers are used for 42 liters.

    \frac {25 \ liters}{355 \ kilometers} = \frac{42 \ liters}{x \ kilometers}

    \frac {25 }{355 } = \frac{42 }{x}

    Cross multiply. Multiply the first numerator by the second denominator, then the first denominator by the second numerator.

    25*x=42*355

    25x=14910

    Since we are solving for x, we need to isolate the variable. x is being multiplied by 25. The inverse of multiplication is division, so divide both sides by 25.

    \frac{25x}{25}=\frac {14910}{25}

    x=596.4

    The car can travel 596.4 kilometers with 42 liters of fuel.
