A person Travels 50 km per hour. If we increase his speed by 10 km per hour, how many minutes will it take to cover 7500 m.

Solution!
Speed= 50 km per hour
If the speed is increased by 10 kilometre per hour
Then the new speed= 60 km per hour
So distance covered in 1 hour=60 km/ hr
Then the distance covered in 60 minute= 60000
Distance covered in 1 minute=1000m
The new speed 1000 per minute=1000 m /min
Distance to be covered 7500 m= 7500 meters.
Time=7500/1000=7.5 min
