A thief is noticed by a policeman from a distance of 200 m. The thief starts running and the policeman chases him. The thief and the policeman run at the rate of 10 km and 11 km per hour respectively. What is the distance between them after 6 minutes?
The hour hand moves from pointing to 12 to pointing to half way between 2 and 3. The angle covered between each hour marking on the clock is 360/12 = 30. Since the hand has covered 2.5 of these divisions the angle moved through is 75.
Two horses start trotting towards each other, one from A to B and another from B to A. They cross each other after one hour and the first horse reaches B, 5/6 hour before the second horse reaches A. If the distance between A and B is 50 km. what is the speed of the slower horse?
