Explanatory Answer Let the optimum speed be v km/hr Total fuel cost =$1/400)[ (1000/v) + v ] x 1000 x 65 rupees
= 162.5[ (1000/v) + v ]
Total journey time = 1000/v
Total driver cost = 1000 x 50/v
Total cost = 162.5[ (1000/v) + v ] + 1000 x 50/v
= 162.5v + 212500/v
Differentiating total cost wrt v and equating it to zero
162.5 -212500/v2 = 0
= > v2 = 1307
= > v = 36 km/hr
