48.6 L x (1) and cancel units:

48.6 L x (1 min/4.5 L) = 10.8 min

Absolutely no question that's the right answer.

48.6/4.5 = 10.8 minutes..

It will take 10.8 minute if 48.6 liters came out..

48.6 / 4.5

= 10.8 minutes

= 10 minutes + (60 x 0.8)

= 10 + 48 seconds

= 10 minutes 48 seconds

Your answer is correct.

Water leaves the faucet at the rate of 4.5 liters per min.;

W = rt, ie., t = W/r;

W = 48.6---> t = (48.6 l)/(4.5l/min) = (48.6/4.5)min = (97.2/9)min = 10.8 min;

= 10 min. 48 sec.

If 48.6 liters of water came out, the faucet was on for 10.8 minutes.

You got it right.

48.6 Liters / (4.5 Liters/minute) =>

(48.6/4.5) minutes =>

(486/45) minutes =>

(972/90) minutes =>

(97.2/9) minutes =>

10.8 minutes

10.8 looks right to me.
