    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 min.

    You were right.

    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.

    Suppose 4.5 liters of water come out of a faucet each minute. 

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

    You got it right.

    Time taken

    = (48.6 L) ÷ (4.5 L/min)

    = 10.8 min

    Your answer is correct.

  • 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.
