Q:

# A man traveled from the village to the post-office at the rate of 25 kmph and walked back at the rate of 4 kmph. If the whole journey took 5 hours 48 minutes, find the distance of the post-office from the village ?

 A) 40 km B) 30 km C) 20 km D) 10 km

Explanation:

Average speed = $2aba+b$, here a=25 b=4
= 2 x 25 x 4/(25+4) = 200/29 km/hr.

Distance covered in 5 hours 48 minutes
= Speed x time = (200/29)x (29/5) Distance covered in 5 hours 48 minutes = 40kms.

Distance of the post office from the village = (40/2) = 20 km.
