A man travels some distance at a speed of 20 km/hr and returns at a speed of 12 km/hr. If the total time taken by him is 2 hrs 40 min, the distance is

Let the distance travelled by a man be D km According to the question, Total time taken = 2 hrs 40 min = 2(40/60) = 8/3 hours Total time = T_{1} + T_{2} D/20 + D/12 = 8/3 (3D + 5D)/60 = 8/3 8D/60 = 8/3 D = 20 km

- Speed of a car and a bus is 20 km/h and 10 km/h, respectively. If the time taken by the car to cover a distance of ‘9x’ km is 4 hour less than time taken by the bus to cover a distance of ‘5x’ km, then find the value of ‘9x’
- The speed of current is 10 km/h. What will be the respective downstream speed and upstream speed of a boy rowing a boat, if one sixth of the distance covered going downstream in a certain time is equal to the distance covered going upstream in the same time?
- The speed of two cars A and B are in the ratio of 13:17 respectively. Car A travels 16 km less than the car B in the same time duration. What was the distance (in km) travelled by the car B during that time?
- X started to run from point ‘A’ to ‘B’ at a speed of 21 km/hr at 9:00 am and Y started to run from point ‘B’ to ‘A’ at a speed of 18 km/hr at 11:00 am. If they meet each other at 3:00 pm then find the distance between points ‘A’ and ‘B’.
- Krishna covers a certain distance by train at 25 km/hr. and the equal distance on foot at 4 km/hr. If the time taken by him for the whole journey be 5 hrs and 48 minutes, how much total distance did he cover?
- The downstream speed of a boat is 6 km/hr more than its upstream speed and the ratio of the speed of the boat in still water to the speed of the stream is 8:3. Find the total time taken by boat to travel 33 km downstream and 25 km upstream?
- The speed of two cars A and B are in the ratio of 11:13 respectively. Car A travels 14 km less than the car B in the same time duration. What was the distance (in km) travelled by the car B during that time?
- In covering a distance of 30 km, Abhay takes 2 hours more than Sameer. If Abhay doubles his speed, then he would take 1 hour less than Sameer. Abhay's speed is:
