Q.

A train covers a distance in 50 min, if it runs at a speed of 48 kmph on an average. The speed at which the train must run to reduce the time of journey to 40 min will be.

 A.

45 kmph

 B.

60 kmph

 C.

75 kmph

 D.

None of these

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(B) is correct

Time = \(\dfrac{50}{60}=\dfrac{5}{6}\) hr

Speed = 48 mph

Distance  = \(S\times T=48\times \dfrac{5}{6}=40\) km

Time = \(\dfrac{40}{60} \) hr

New speed = \(40\times \dfrac{3}{2}=60\) kmph

T1/T2 = V2 / V1

5/6 V2

---- = -----

4/6 48

V2 = 60 kmph.

no need to find distance simple one liner solution inverse of ratio of speed as time and speed are inverse proportion .So simple 48 *5/4 =60
