Question

A cyclist travels at a speed of 8km/h. Had he travelled at 10km/h he would have covered a distance of 6 km more. What is the total distance travelled by him?

A

24 km.

B

25 km.

C

23 km.

D

26 km.

Soln.
Ans: a

By the given problem, the time is same for both cases. If the total distance covered by him at 8km/h is x, then, $x/8 = {x + 6}/10$. Solving, we obtain x = 24 km.
