Q:

# Den Bosch and Eastbourne are two famous cities 300 km apart. Maradona starts from Den Bosch at 8:24 am . An hour later pele starts from Den Bosch. After travelling for 1 hour , Pele reaches Nottingham that Maradona had passed 40 minutes earlier. Nottingham falls on the way from Den Bosch to Eastbourne. If pele and Maradona just reaches  Eastbourne at the same time, what are thespeeds of the Maradona and Pele Respectively?

 A) 100 km/h , 125 km/h B) 60 km/h , 80 km/h C) 60 km/h , 75 km/h D) 75 km/h , 100 km/h

Answer:   D) 75 km/h , 100 km/h

Explanation:

Let Pele x km in 1 hour. so Maradona takes (2h-40min)=1 h 20 min to cover x km. Let speed of Maradona and Pele be M and P respectively than

x =M x (4/3)  and x= P x 1

=> M/P = 3/4

Again      $300M=300P=1$

$⇒3003k-3004k=1$

=> k= 25

M= 3k = 75 km/h   and   P= 4k = 100 km/h

( Through options it is very easy to solve)
