Assume that they meet xx hours after 88 a.m.

Then, train 1,1, starting from A, travels xx hours till the trains meet.

Distance travelled by train 11 in xx hours =60x km=60x km

Train 2,2, starting from B, travels (x−1)(x−1) hours till the trains meet.

Distance travelled by train 22 in (x−1)(x−1) hours =75(x−1) km=75(x−1) km

Total distance travelled

= Distance travelled by train 11 + Distance travelled by train 22

⇒330=60x+75(x−1)

⇒12x+15(x−1)=66

66. Question 46. A Train Travelled At An Average Speed Of 100100 Km/hr, Stopping For 33 Minutes After Every 7575 Km. How Long Did It Take To Reach Its Destination 600600 Km From The Starting Point?

Time needed to travel 600 km =600/100=6 hour

Now we need to find out the number of stops in the 600600 km journey. Given that the train stops after every 7575 km.

600/75=8

It means, the train stops 7 times before 600 km and 11 time just after 600 km. Hence we need to take only 7 stops into consideration for the 600 km journey.

Hence, total stopping time in the 600 km journey

=7×3=21minutes

Total time needed to reach the destination

=6 hours +21 minutes

=6 hours 21 minutes.

67. Question 47. P Takes Twice As Much Time As Q Or Thrice As Much Time As R To Finish A Piece Of Work. They Can Finish The Work In 2 Days If Work Together. How Much Time Will Q Take To Do The Work Alone?

Let P takes x days to complete the work

Then Q takes x/2 days and R takes x/3 days to finish the work

Amount of work P does in 1 day = 1/x

Amount of work Q does in 1 day = 2/x

Amount of work R does in 1 day = 3/x

Amount of work P,Q and R do in 1 day = 1/x + 2/x + 3/x = 1/x (1 + 2 + 3) = 6/x

6/x = 2

=> x = 12

=> Q takes 12/2 days = 6 days to complete the work.

68. Question 48. P Works Twice As Fast As Q. If Q Alone Can Complete A Work In 12 Days, P And Q Can Finish The Work In — Days?

Work done by Q in 1 day = 1/12

Work done by P in 1 day = 2 × (1/12) = 1/6

Work done by P and Q in 1 day = 1/12 + 1/6 =1/4

=> P and Q can finish the work in 4 days.

Assume both trains meet xx hours after 77 a.m.

Distance covered by train starting from P in xx hours =20x km=20x km

Distance covered by train starting from Q in (x−1)(x−1) hours =25(x−1) km=25(x−1) km

Total distance =110 km=110 km

⇒20x+25(x−1)=110

⇒45x=135

⇒x=3

Hence, they meet 33 hours after 77 a.m.

i.e., they meet at 10 a.m.
