# Science Application: The king cobra can reach a length of 558 cm. This is only about 60 per cent of the length of the largest reticulated python. Find the length of the largest reticulated python.

**Solution:**

Given, the king coba can reach a length of 558 cm.

This is only about 60 percent of the length of the largest reticulated python.

We have to find the length of the largest reticulated python.

Length of the king cobra = 558 cm

According to the question,

60% of the reticulated length of python = 558 cm

60% × length of the reticulated python = 558

(60/100) × length of the reticulated python = 558

length of the reticulated python = 558 × (100/60)

= 558 × (10/6)

= 93 × 10

= 930 cm

Therefore, the required length is 930 cm.
