Question 7:

A train covered a certain distance at a uniform speed. If the train would have been faster, it would have taken hours less than the scheduled time. And, if the train were slower by , it would have taken hours more than the scheduled time. Find the distance covered by the train.

Answer:

Let the speed of the train be x km/h and the time taken by train to travel the given distance be hours and the distance to travel be .

Since Speed

According to the question

Again,

Adding equations (2) and (3) , we obtain:

Substituting the value of x in equation (2) , we obtain:

From equation (1) , we obtain:

Thus, the distance covered by the train is .
