Q:

Karthik walks at 5 km/hr and reaches his destination 8 min late. If he walks at 6 km/hr, he reaches his destination on time. What distance he will cover in given time ?

A) 10 kms B) 8 kms
C) 6 kms D) 4 kms

Answer:   D) 4 kms



Explanation:

Let the actual distance be t kms

Now, According to the data,

 

5t + 860 = 6t=> 560t + 860 = 6t=> 60t + 8 = 72t=> 8 = 12t=> t = 8/12 = 2/3 hrs

 

Now, the total distance = 6t = 6 x 2/3 = 2 x 2 = 4 kms.
