thnks ....for all ur effort.. plz provide more courses..
In the last question, i.e. Q8, won't we convert 5 hrs to 5/3 since 1hr equals 1/3 in relation as we did for distance i.e. 30/3 = 10 for actual distance? Please clarify. Thanks in advance
Two trains X and Y stsrt from jodhpur to jaipur and from jaipur to jodhpur resp. After passing each other, they takr 4hr48min and 3hr20min to reach jaipur and jodhpur resp. If X is moving at 45km/hr, the speed of Y is
Nyc video sir g..its a very helpful.
Any trick for this Question .A car travels from P to Q at a constant speed. If its speed were increase by 10 km/h, it would have been taken one hour lesser or cover the distance. It would have taken further 45 minutes lesser if the speed was further increased by 10 km/h. The distance between the two cities is Or we have to solve it by making two linear equation

Sir please reply to this question
You have to make two linear equations and it will be like 10T- S =10 and 20T- 7/4 S = 35 so S=60 kmph and T= 7 hr so D= 420 km
