# What will be the Speed of Car? If

Answered

A train can travel 50% faster than a car. Both start from point A at the same time and reach point B 75 kms away from A at the same time. On the way, however, the train lost about 12.5 minutes while stopping at the station. The speed of the car is:

- 100 km/h
- 110 km/h
- 120 km/h
- 130 km/h

Best answer

**Answer: (3) 120 km/hr**

**Explanation:-**

Let the speed of the car = X km/hr

The train can travel 50 % than the car,

Then, the speed of the car = X + X x 50/100

= X + X/2

= 3 X/2 km/hr

The train lost about 12.5 minutes,

Therefore,

75/X – 75/(3X/2) = 125/10 x 60

75/X – 75 x 2/3 X = 5/24

75/X – 50/X = 5/24

25/X = 5/24

X = 24 x 25/5

X = 120 km/hr

Hence, the answer is (3) 120 km/hr.
