## Arithmetic: Time Speed Distance Test-5

Congratulations - you have completed

*Arithmetic: Time Speed Distance Test-5*. You scored %%SCORE%% out of %%TOTAL%%. You correct answer percentage: %%PERCENTAGE%% . Your performance has been rated as %%RATING%%
Your answers are highlighted below.

Question 1 |

If a man walks 20 km at 5 km/hr, he will be late by 40 minutes. If he walks at 8 km per hr, how early from the fixed time will he reach?

15 minutes | |

25 minutes | |

50 minutes | |

$ \displaystyle 1\frac{1}{2}$Minutes |

Question 1 Explanation:

The time taken by the man is 20 /5 = 4 hours.

If he is 40 mins late he should have reached by 3 hours 20 mins. = 200 mins

When he travels at 8 Km/hr, the person would reach at 20/8 = 2 hours 30 mins. = 150 mins

He has reached 200-150 = 50 mins earlier.

If he is 40 mins late he should have reached by 3 hours 20 mins. = 200 mins

When he travels at 8 Km/hr, the person would reach at 20/8 = 2 hours 30 mins. = 150 mins

He has reached 200-150 = 50 mins earlier.

Question 2 |

If a man reduces his speed to 2/3, he takes 1 hour more in walking a certain distance. The time (in hours) to cover the distance with his normal speed is:

2 | |

1 | |

3 | |

1.5 |

Question 2 Explanation:

According to the question
A reduction of speed to 2/3 or original means the time taken will be in the ratio of 2: (3-2)= 2:1 .
The time taken will be double.
Therefore, now he will take 2 hours to walk the same distance.

Question 3 |

A student rides on bicycle at 8 km/hour and reaches his school 2.5 minutes late. The next day he increases his speed to 10 km/hour and reaches school 5 minutes early. How far is the school from his house?

5/8 km | |

8 km | |

5 km | |

10 km |

Question 3 Explanation:

Let t be the correct time to reach the school and all the speed be considered unit-less as the multiplying factor for conversion will cancelled on both sides of equation,

(t+2.5)8=10(t-5)

8t + 20 = 10t - 50

2t = 70

t=35 mins.

Distance from school =$ 10\times \frac{35-5}{60}=5km$

(t+2.5)8=10(t-5)

8t + 20 = 10t - 50

2t = 70

t=35 mins.

Distance from school =$ 10\times \frac{35-5}{60}=5km$

Question 4 |

A man covered a certain distance at some speed. Had he moved 3 km per hour faster, he would have taken 40 minutes less. If he had moved 2 km per hour slower, he would have taken 40 minutes more. The distance (in km) is:

20 | |

35 | |

36 ^{2}/_{3} | |

40 |

Question 4 Explanation:

Let the distance be x km and initial speed be y kmph.

Question 5 |

Starting from his house one day, a student walks at a speed of 2

^{1}/_{2}km/h, and reaches his school 6 minutes late. Next day at the same time he increases his speed by 1 kmph. and reaches the school 6 minutes early. How far is the school from his house?(a) 2 km | |

(b) 1 ^{1}/_{2 }km | |

(c) 1 km | |

(d) 1 ^{3}/_{4 }km |

Question 5 Explanation:

Let the speed be s kmph and t mins =appropriate time.

5/2(t+6) = (7/2) (t-6)

5t+30 = 7t -42

2t=72

t= 36 mins

s=7/2 t= 30 mins.=1/2 hour

d= 7/2 x 1/2= 1

5/2(t+6) = (7/2) (t-6)

5t+30 = 7t -42

2t=72

t= 36 mins

s=7/2 t= 30 mins.=1/2 hour

d= 7/2 x 1/2= 1

^{3}/_{4 }km
