# A cyclist has to cover a distance of 80 km in 10 hrs. If he covers half journey in 3/5th time

A cyclist has to cover a distance of 80 km in 10 hrs. If he covers half journey in 3/5th time. What should be his speed to cover the remaining distance in the time left?

- 14 km per hour
- 12 km per hour
- 10 km hour
- 8 km per hour

**Answer: (3) 10 km per hour **

**Solution:-**

A cyclist has to cover a distance of 80 km = 10 hrs.

If he covers half journey in 3/5th time.

Then, time taken to cover half journey = 10 x 3/5

= 6 hrs.

Remaining time = 10 – 6

= 4 hrs.

Remaining distance = 80 – 40

= 40 km

Then, the speed of a cyclist to cover the remaining distance = 40/4

= 10 km/hr

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 10 km per hour.
