An aeroplane covers a certain distance at a speed of 240 kmph in 5 hours. To cover the same distance in 1 2/3 hours, it must travel at a speed of:


A. 300 kmph
B. 360 kmph
C. 600 kmph
D. 720 kmph

View Answer

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option D

Explanation: Distance = (240 x 5) = 1200 km.

Speed = Distance/Time

Speed = 1200/(5/3) km/hr. [We can write 1 2/3 hours as 5/3 hours]

Required speed = 1200 x 3/5 km/hr = 720 km/hr.





If a person walks at 14 km/hr instead of 10 km/hr, he would have walked 20 km more. The actual distance travelled by him is:


A. 50 km
B. 56 km
C. 70 km
D. 80 km

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option A

Explanation: Let the actual distance travelled be x km.

Then, x/10 = (x + 20)/14

14x = 10x + 200

4x = 200

x = 50 km
