Q:

# The distance of the college and home of Rajeev is 80km. One day he was late by 1 hour than the normal time to leave for the college, so he increased his speed by 4km/h and thus he reached  to college  at the normal time. What is the changed (or increased) speed of Rajeev?

 A) 28 km/h B) 30 km/h C) 40 km/h D) 20 km/h

Explanation:

Let the normal speed be x km/h, then

$80x-80(x+4)=1$

$⇒$$x2+4x-320=0$

$⇒$x (x + 20) - 16 (x + 20) = 0

(x + 20 ) (x - 16) =0

x = 16 km/h

Therefore (x + 4) = 20 km/h

Therefore increased speed = 20 km/h

Q:

A man walks at a speed of 3 kmph. He doubles his speed after reaching exactly half way. He walks for 5 hours in all. What is the total distance travelled by him?

 A) 19 km B) 15 km C) 12 km D) 20 km

Explanation:

Let total distance be 2D.

He walks half distance i.e, (2D/2) = 'D' distance with 3 kmph and

The next 'D' with 6 kmph.

Using formula,

Time = Distance/speed

(D/3) + (D/6) = 5

D =10 ,

Hence, Total distance 2D  =  20 kms.

A person driving at the speed of 45 kmph reaches office 1 minute early while she reaches 3 minutes late if driving 40 kmoh. What is the distance (in Km) that she is covering?

 A) 24 B) 28 C) 32 D) 30

Explanation:

Difference in time taken = 4min = 1/15 hr

Let the total distance covered by person be D km.

Then,

D/40 – D/45 = 1/15

⇒ 5D = 120

⇒ D = 24 km

∴ Distance covered by person is 24 km.
