# What Should be Person Speed? If

A person covers a certain distance with a speed of 24 km/hr. in 8 minutes. If he wants to cover the same distance in 6 minutes, what should be his speed:

- 28 km/hr
- 32 km/hr
- 34 km/hr
- 36 km/hr

**Answer: (2) 32 km/hr.**

**Explanation:-**

The speed of a person = 24 km/hr

Speed in m/sec = 24 x 5/18

= 4 x 5/3

= 20/3 m/sec

The speed covered by a person in 8 min = 20 x 8 /3

= 160/3 m

If he want to covered the same distance in 6 min.

Then, the speed of the person = 160/3 x 6

= 160/18 m/sec

Speed in km/hr. = 160 x 18/18 x 5

= 160/5

= 32 km/hr.

Hence, the answer is (2) 32 km/hr.
