## Time and Distance Questions

1. Robert is travelling on his cycle and has calculated to reach point A at 2 P.M. if he travels at 10 kmph, he will reach there at 12 noon if he travels at 15 kmph. At what speed must he travel to reach A at 1 P.M.?

Correct Ans:12 km/hour
Explanation:

2. A man on tour travels first 160 km at 64 km/hr and the next 160 km at 80 km/hr. Find the average speed for first 320 km of tour.

Correct Ans:71.11 km/hr
Explanation:

3. In a flight of 600 km, an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather. Its average speed for the trip was reduced by 200 km/hr and the time of flight increased by 30 minutes. What is the duration of the flight ?

Correct Ans:1 hour
Explanation:

4. A Man travelled a distance of 61 km in 9 hours. He travelled partly on foot at 4 km/hr and partly on bicycle at 9 km/hr. What is the distance travelled on foot?

Correct Ans:16 km
Explanation:
Let the time in which he travelled on foot = x hour
Time for travelling on bicycle = (9 - x) hr

Distance = Speed * Time, and Total distance = 61 km
So,
4x + 9(9-x) = 61
=> 5x = 20
=> x = 4

So distance traveled on foot = 4(4) = 16 km

5. A man complete a journey in 10 hours. He travels first half of the journey at the rate of 21 km/hr and second half at the rate of 24 km/hr. Find the total journey in km.

Correct Ans:224 Km
Explanation:
Let time taken to travel the first half = x hr
Then time taken to travel the second half = (10 - x) hr

Distance covered in the the first half = 21x [because, distance = time*speed]
Distance covered in the the second half = 24(10 - x)

Distance covered in the the first half = Distance covered in the the second half
So,
21x = 24(10 - x)
=> 45x = 240
=> x = 16/3

Total Distance = 2*21(16/3) = 224 Km [multiplied by 2 as 21x was distance of half way]

6. 2 trains starting at the same time from 2 stations 200 km apart and going in opposite direction cross each other at a distance of 110 km from one of the stations. What is the ratio of their speeds ?

Correct Ans:11:9
Explanation:
We know total distance is 200 Km
If both trains crossed each other at a distance of 110 km then one train covered 110 km and other 90 km [110+90=200km]
So ratio of their speed = 110:90 = 11:9

7.  Excluding stoppages, the speed of a bus is 54 kmph and including stoppages, it is 45 kmph. For how many minutes does the bus stop per hour ?

Correct Ans:10 mintues
Explanation:
Due to stoppages, it covers 9 km less.

Time taken to cover 9 km = (9/54) hour
= (1/6)*60 minutes
= 10 minutes

8. Two boys starting from the same place walk at a rate of 5kmph and 5.5kmph respectively. What time will they take to be 8.5km apart, if they walk in the same direction?

Correct Ans:17 hours
Explanation:
Distance between them is 8.5 km
Time = Distance/Speed
Time= 8.5km / 0.5 kmph = 17 hrs

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

Correct Ans:60 km/hr
Explanation:
We are having time and speed given, so first we will calculate the distance. Then we can get new speed for given time and distance.
Lets solve it.

Time = 50/60 hr = 5/6 hr
Speed = 48 mph
Distance = S*T = 48 * 5/6 = 40 km

New time will be 40 minutes so,
Time = 40/60 hr = 2/3 hr
Now we know,
Speed = Distance/Time
New speed = 40*3/2 kmph = 60kmph

10.  A man is walking at the rate of 5 km/hr crosses a bridge in 15 minutes. The length of the bridge is

Correct Ans:1250 meters
Explanation:

11. A person crosses a 600 meter long street in 5 minutes. What is the speed in Km/hr

Correct Ans:7.2 km/hr
Explanation:

12. Excluding stoppages, the speed of a bus is 54 kmph and including stoppages, it is 45 kmph. For how many minutes does the bus stop per hour?

Correct Ans:10
Explanation:

13. An athlete runs 200 meters in 24 seconds. His speed is ?

Correct Ans:30 km/hr
Explanation:

14. A cyclist covers a distance of 750 meter in 2 minutes 30 seconds. What is the speed in km/hr of cyclist

Correct Ans:18 km/hr
Explanation:

15. A person crosses a 600 m long street in 5 minutes. What is his speed in km per hour?
