Q. |
A man and a woman 81 miles apart from each other, start travelling towards each other at the same time. If the man covers 5 miles per hour to the women's 4 miles per hour, how far will the woman have travelled when they meet? |

✖ A. |
27 |

✔ B. |
36 |

✖ C. |
45 |

✖ D. |
None of these |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

\(\text{Time taken to meet}=\dfrac{\text{Distance between them}}{\text{Relative speed}}\)

\(=\dfrac{81}{4+5}\)

= 9 hours

Therefore, woman travels = $9×4=36$ miles
