Q.

Distance between the points is $P$. $A$ man with the speed of $s$ and reaches the other point late by 2 hours. Calculated the speed with which the man has to travel to reach in time, where t is the actual time.

 A.

\(\dfrac{S\times (t+1)}{(t+2)}\)

 B.

\(\dfrac{s\times t}{(t+2)}\)

 C.

\(\dfrac{s\times (t+2)}{t}\)

 D.

\(\dfrac{s\times t}{(t+1)}\)

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Assume $x$ be the actual speed

Then

\(\dfrac{p}{x}=t\text{ and }\dfrac{p}{s}=t+2\)

So, 

$x\times t=s\times (t+2)$

\(\Rightarrow x = \dfrac{s\times (t+2)}{t}\)
