# What is the Menon’s Average Speed? If

Town A and town B were 600 km apart. Joshua left town A for town B and travelled at an average speed of 65 km/h. At the same time, Menon left town B for town A. The two of them met 5 hours later. Find Menon’s average speed.

- 55 km/h
- 60 km/h
- 65 km/h
- 120 km/h

**Answer: (1) 55 km/h**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the average speed of Menon = X km/h

Total distance = 600 km

The average speed of Joshua = 65 km/ h

**Formula – **

**Average speed = Total distance / total speed**

According to the question,

600/(65 + X) = 5

600 = 325 + 5X

5X = 600 – 325

5X = 275

X = 275/5

X = 55 km/h

Hence, the answer is (1) 55 km/h.
