Answers & Explanations
1. Expl : 200/24 * 18/5 = 30 km/hr
2. Expl :The distance traveled in 30 sec = 45*(5/18) *30 =375m
3. Time taken to cover the entire length = tot.dist/resultant speed = 140/ (11+3) = 10sec
4. Expl : Let the speed of faster train be f and slower train be y.
Time taken to cross each other traveling in the same direction = 250 +150/ (xy) = 40………(1)
Time taken to cross each other traveling in the opposite direction = 250+150 /(x+y) = 8 …….(2)
From (1) and (2) f= 30 m/s and s = 20 m/s
Speed of slower train = 20 * 18/5 = 72 kmph
5. Expl : Ram takes 100/20 = 5 hours to cover the distance from P to Q. By
that time Lakshman covers
covers 5 *25 = 125 km
Lakshman covers 25 km more than the distance PQ . Now the distance between them = 75 km
Time taken by them to meet = Distance/ Relative speed = 75/(20+25) = 75/45 = 5/3 hrs.
Distance between Q and R is nothing but the distance covered by Ram in 5/3 hours = 20 *5/3 = 100/3 km or 33 1/3 km
6. Expl :
With halt in 1 hour the train travels 60km
With out halt for traveling same distance it take 60/75 = 4/5 = 48 minutes
:. 12 minutes is the halting time per hour
7. Expl : P___50_____ R ___50_____S____50 ___Q
The above figure gives the locations of P, R, S &Q in relation to each other.
8.Expl: Speed of Shiny = 50/ 10 = 5m/s
Time taken by shiny to complete the race is B = 1000/5 = 200 sec.
Time taken by Baley to complete the race is D = 1000/4 = 250 sec.
Hence, DB = 50 sec
9. Track length = 500 m
Speed of A and B are 20m/s and 10 m/s respectively
Time taken by them to meet = length/ relative speed = 500/(2010) 50 sec.
Time taken to meet for the 7^{th} time = 7 *50 =350 sec ……..(1)
Total duration of race = total legth of race/ speed
= 500/20 = 250 sec ……..(2)
From (1) and (2) we can find out that 7^{th} time meeting is not possible.
10. Let the speed of the bus B be x km/hr. Then the speed of the bus A will be ( x +5) kmph
Distance traveled in 4 hours is 4x and 4(x + 5) for the two buses respectively (refer the figure)
(4x)^{2} + {4 (x + 5) }^{2} = (100)^{2}
16x^{2} + 16x^{2} + 160x + 400 = 1000
32x^{2} +160x 9600 = 0
x^{2} + 5x 300 = 0 (x15) (x +20 ) = 0
x = 15
:. Speed of the bus A = 15 +5 = 20 kmph
11. Expl : Let the distance between house and office be x km
(x/30)  (x/40) = 20/40; x/120 = 1/3 x = 40 km
Travlling at 40 kmph, he reaches office in 1 hour i.e. 15 minutes early
So required speed = 40/ 5/4 = 40 * 4/5 = 160/5 = 32 kmph
12. Total distance traveled = Length of train + Length of tunnel = 575 + 325 = 900
Time taken to cross the tunnel = 90 sec.
Speed in kmph = distance/time *18/5 = 900/90 * 18/5 = 180/5 = 36 kmph
13. Time taken to cross a moving person = length of train/ relative speed
Time taken = 390/((459) (5/18) = 390/ 36*(5/18) = 390/10 = 39 sec
14. Time taken to meet the first time = length of track/relative speed
= 400/ (15 +25) (5/18)
= 400/40 *(18/5) = 36 sec.
15. Let speed of D in first hour = x
D's speed = x+ 2x+ 4x+ 8x+ 16x*(5/8) = 25x
Given 25x=300 :. X = 12
At the end of four hours C traveled 120 (30 *4) kmph and D traveled 12 + 24+ 48 +96 = 180kmph
:. They meet each other after 4 hours ie at 5: p.m.
16. In first 3 hours T1 travels R km and T2 travels S km.
After 6 hours they traveled R+S+70+ 700
2(R+S ) = R+S +140
R+S = 140
Hence distance between XY is R+S+ 70 = 140 +70 =210
17. Expl : Rana is the faster person. He gains 1 km in 1 hour. So Rana will
gain one complete round over
Ajith in 115 hours. i.e. they will meet after 115 hours.
18. Expl : Time taken to carry 2^{nd} person = 300/50 = 6 hrs.
Time taken to meet 3^{rd} person =(3006*10)/(50+10) = 4 hrs
Time taken to carry 3^{rd} person = 4 hours
Time taken to meet 4^{th} person = (300 140)/60 = 8/3
Total time = 6+4+4+8/3+8/3 = 58/3 hours
19. Let the distance be 2x(one way)
Time taken by bus = 2x/40, by walking =x/4, by cycling = x/30 hours
:. Average speed = Total Distance = 4x = 4 *60 = 12.0
Total time x/20 + x/4 + x/30 3+15+2
20. The total distance covered for over taking = length of the two trains = 120 +120 = 240
Speed of faster train be x m/s and slower train be y m/s
In the first case Relative speed = xy
Relative Speed = Distance / Time taken = xy = 240/15 = 16 m/s………(1)
In the second case, the slower train moves at half its speed
Relative Speed = x0.5y = 240/10 = 24 m/s …………………..(2)
Solving equation 1 & 2 we get x = 32 and y = 16 .
:. The speed of the faster and slower trains are 32 m/s and 16 m/s respectively
