# The distance between two stations A, B is 390 A train starts from station A at 10 AM

The distance between two stations A, B is 390 A train starts from station A at 10 AM and travels towards station B at 65 kmph. Another train starts from station B at 11 AM and travels towards station A at 35 kmph. The time they meet is

- 2 PM
- 2.15 PM
- 2.30 PM
- 2.45 PM

**Answer: (2) 2.15 PM **

**Solution:-**

Let they meet X hours after 10 a.m.

According to the question,

Distance moved by first in X hours + Distance moved by second in (X – 1) = 390

Then, 65 X + 35 (X – 1) – 390

65 X + 35 X – 35 = 390

100 X = 390 + 35

100 X = 425

X = 425/100

X = 4.25

So, they meet 4 hours and 15 minutes after 10 a. m.

Then, time will be 2.15 p.m.

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 2.15 PM.
