Speed are 8 km/hr and 15 km/hr
So it takes 15t times and 8t times
Difference of times = 15t – 8t = 7t
7t = 35 minutes (10:15 min – 9:40 min)
t = 5 minutes
He takes 75 minutes by travelling at 8 km/hr and 40 minutes if travelled at 15 km/hr
He starts at 9 am.
So, 9:10 to 10:00 = 50 minutes
15 km/hr = 40 min
And at what speed he should travel, so as to reach there within 50 minutes
$$frac{15 × 40}{50}$ = 12 km/hr ##### The answer is, "12" ###### 🎊 Independance Day Discount! Upto 4,000 off on CAT Online Courses.
