Answer:

110km

Step-by-step explanation:

If she walks 18km on the first day and each day since, she walked 90percent of what she walked the day before.

Second day = 90% of 18km

Second day = 90/100× 18

= 16.2km

Third day = 90% of distance walked second day

Third day = 90/100 × 16.2

= 14.58km

Fourth day = 0.9× 14.58

= 13.12km

Fifth day = 0.9×13.122 = 11.81km

Sixth day = 0.9×11.81 = 10.63km

7th day = 0.9×10.63 = 9.57km

8th day = 0.9×9.57 = 5.74km

9th day = 0.9×5.74 = 5.17km

10th day = 0.9×5.17 = 4.65km

At the end of the 10th day, the total distance covered will be sum of all the distances

= 18+16.2+14.58+13.12+11.81+10.63+

9.57+5.74+5.17+4.65

= 109.47km

= 110km to nearest kilometers
