A person has to cover a distance of 88 km in 30 minutes. If he covers half the distance in one fifth time, then to cover the remaining distance in remaining time, at what speed must he travel now?

Time taken to cover 44 km distance = `1/5xx` 30 = 6 minutes. ∴ Remaining distance = 44 km and remaining time = 24 minutes ∴ Speed should be = `(44xx60)/24` [if gte msEquation 12]>
