sir can you please explain how you the got the first question answer as 60 mins and second question answer as 7.4 kms/hr. i had got answer as 80kms and 6.4kms/hr
ReplyDeleteIn first question, as the distance in both cases are same, so equate the distances and you will get 60 min. as answer.
DeleteIn 2nd,firstly calculate the time taken by A(1/8 hr.).Secondly calculate the time taken by B (in this case distance would be 0.95 km.) and equate this with the time taken by A+(15/3600). Finally solve, you will get 7.354838 km/h.
