The ratio between the average speed of a car and a bus is 21:13 respectively. Also, a train movingly uniformly covered a distance of 1053 kms in 9 hours. Average speed of the bus 52 kmph less than the average speed of the train. How much distance will the uniformly moving car covers in 11 hours ?

Solution :

Train speed = 1053/9 = 117kmph
car speed = 117-52= 65kmph

car speed = (65*21)/13= 105kmph

car covers in 11hours = 105*11=1155km

#### Ques 2.

Two trains each 210 meters long moving in opposite directions cross each other in 12 seconds. If one is moving thrice as fast as another .What is speed of slower train ?

Solution :

speed = (210+210)/12 = 35 m/s

x + 3x = 35

x = 35/4 m/s

#### Ques 3.

Fresh nuts contains 80% water by weight, whereas dry nuts contain 50% water by weight by weight .Suresh buys 60kg of fresh nuts for a total price of 200. At what price should the dry nuts to earn 20% profit ?
