# What will Ratio be Their Speeds? If

A car covers a distance of 200 km in 2 h 40 min whereas a jeep covers the same distance in 2 h. What is the ratio of their speeds?

- 3:4
- 4:3
- 4:5
- 5:4

**Answer: (1) 3 : 4**

**Explanation:-**

Distance covered by car = 200 km

Time taken by car to covered the distance 200 km = 2 h 40 min

= 2 + 40/60 = 2 + 2/3

=8 /3 hr.

**Formula-**

** Speed = Total distance / total time taken to the distance.**

Then, the speed of car = 200 x 3/8

= 25 x 3 = 75 km/hr.

If time taken by jeep to covered the same distance = 2 h

Then, speed of jeep = 200/2 = 100 km/hr.

The ratio of their speed = 75/100

= 3 : 4

Hence, the answer is (1) 3 : 4.
