  3. 3. In one hour a boat goes 11 km long the stream and 5 km against the stream. The speed of the boat in still water ? Solution : Take simple average = (11+5) / 2 = 8 km per hour The speed of water = (11-5)/2 = 3 km per hour. Thus speed of boat with stream = 8+3 = 11 speed of boat against stream=8-3=5 speed of boat on still water=8 km per hour
  4. 4. A man can row 18 kmph in still water. It takes him thrice as long as row up as to row down the river. find the rate of stream Solution : (18+x) = 3(18-x) x=54-3x-18 4x=36 or X = 9 thus speed of stream = 9 (answer) speed with stream = 27 and against stream=9
  5. 5. A man can row 7 + 1/2kmph in still water . if in a river running at 1.5 km an hour, if takes him 50 min to row to place and back. how far off is the place? Solution : Speed of the person with stream=9 against stream =6. distance covered = X X/6+X/9 = 50/60 15X = (50*54)/60 = 45 X = 3 answer
  6. 6. A boat can travel with a speed of 13 kmph in still water. if the speed of stream is 4 kmph, find the time taken by the boat to go 68 km downstream? Solution : speed of boat downstream = 13+4 =17 km p.h. time required = 68/17 = 4 hours. Answer
  7. 7. A boat takes 90 min less to travel 36 miles downstream then to travel the same distence upstream. if the speed of the boat in still water is 10 mph . the speed of the stream is ? Solution : let the speed of the stream = X 36/ (10-X) - (36/(10+X) ) = 1.5 by simple observation, we know that : 36/8 -36/12=1.5 so X = 2, or speed of stream =2 answer
  8. 8. Boat travels from point A(2,3), to B (2,1) to C (0,3) & back to A what is the area of this triangle covered by boat? Area = Modal value of (Ax(By-Cy) +Bx(Cy-Ay)+Cx(Ay-by)) / 2 =modal value of (2(1-3)+2(3-3)+0(3-1))/2 =2 (answer )
  9. 9. There is a road beside a river. two friends started from a place A, moved to a temple situated at another place B and then returned to A again. one of them moves on a cycle at a speed of 12 kmph, while the other sails on a boat at a speed of 10 kmph . if the river flows at the speedof 4 kmph , which of the two friends will return to place A first ? Solution : let us assume the distance = 84 km (I have taken LCM of 14 & 6 ) time taken by boat = 6+14 = 20 hours time by cycle (total of coming and going) = 168/12 =14 hours thus cyle reaches first
  10. 10. A boat takes 19 hrs for travelling downstream from point A to point B. and coming back to a point C midway between A and B. if the velocity of the sream is 4 kmph . and the speed of the boat in still water is 14 kmph. what is the distence between A and B? Solution: Let us assume Ato C = X 2X/18 + X / 10 = 19 38X =19 * 180 X = 90 A to B = 180 km answer
  11. 11. At his usual rowing rate, Rahul takes6 hours less for downstream than it takes him to travel the same distence upstream of 12 miles, but if he could double his usual rowing rate for his 24 miles round, the down stream 12 miles would then take only one hour less than the up stream 12 miles. what is the speed of the current in miles per hours? Solution : first situation : 12/(X-Y) – 12/(X+Y) = 6 new situation 12/(2X-y) -12/(2x+Y) = 1 new X and Y = 3 and 4, speed of water = .5 his speed now is 3+.5 = 3.5 earlier his speed was : 3.5/2 = 1.75
  12. 13. A train 140 m long running at 72 kmph.In how much time will it pass a platform 260m long. Total distance to cover = 140+260 = 400 time = distance / speed speed in meters per second = 72 *5/18 = 20 meters per second time = 400/20 = 20 seconds answer
  13. 14. A man is standing on a railway bridge which is 180 m.He finds that a train crosses the bridge in 20 seconds but himself in 8 sec. Find the length of the train and its sppeed Let us assume the length of train = X the speed of train = x meters/8 180 meters are covered by train in (20-8) seconds 180/12 = 15 meters per second. Thus the length of train is : 15*8 = 120 meters. Answer
  14. 15. A train 150m long is running with a speed of 54 Km per hour. In what time will it pass a man who is running at a speed of 9 km ph in the same direction in which the train is going Speed of train = 54 * 5/18 = 15 meters per second speed of mann = 9 * 5/18 = 2.5 meters per second distance to cover = 150 time = 150/(15-2.5) =12 seconds answer
  15. 16. A train 220m long is running with a speed of 59 k m ph ..In what time will it pass a man who is running at 4 kmph in the direction opposite to that in which train is going. Distance to cover = 220 meters speed = 59+4 = 63 km per hour. In meters per second = 63*5/18 = 17.5 meters per second. Time required : 220/17.5 =12.57 seconds. Answer
  16. 17. Two trains 137m and 163m in length are running towards each other on parallel lines,one at the rate of 42kmph & another at 48 mph.In wht time will they be clear of each other from the moment they meet. Distance to cover 137+163 = 300 meters speed = 42+48 = 90 km per hour speed in meters per second = 90 * 5/18 = 25 meters per second time required = 300/25 = 12 seconds answer
  17. 18. A train running at 54 kmph takes 20 sec to pass a platform. Next it takes 12 sec to pass a man walking at 6kmph in the same direction in which the train is going.Find length of the train and length of platform Solution : Train v/s man speed = 54 -6 = 48 km per hour speed in m/s =48 * 5/18 = 13.33 m / s length of train = 12*13.33 = 159.6 meters speed for platform =54*5/18 = 15 m / s length of platform+ train = 20*15 = 300 length of platform = 300 – 159 = 140 meters approx.
  18. 19. A man sitting in a train which is travelling at 50mph observes that a goods train travelling in opposite direction takes 9 sec to pass him .If the goods train is 150m long find its speed Solution : - Distance travelled = 150 speed =150/9 = 16.66 meters per second or 16.66 * 18/5 = 60 km per hour approx. Thus the speed of goods train is 60-50 = 10 km per hour. Answer
  19. 20. Two trains are moving in the same direction at 65kmph and 47kmph. The faster train crosses a man in slower train in18sec.the length of the faster train is Solution : = When the trains are going in same direction, we take difference of their speed. 65-47 =18 km per hour or 5 meters per second distance travelled =(time 18 seconds * speed 5 meters per second) = 18 * 5 = 90 meters. Thus the length of faster train is 90 meters. Answer
  20. 21. A train overtakes two persons who are walking in the same direction in which the train is going at the rate of 2kmph and 4kmph and passes them completely in 9 sec and 10 sec respectively. The length of train is Solution : - let us assume the speed of train to be X. (X-2) * 9/3600 = (X-4) *10/3600 9X – 18 = 10X – 40 X=22 km per hour. thus distance travelled = (22-4) * 5/18 = 5 m/s time=10 seconds so length of train = 5*10 = 50 meters. Answer
  21. 22. Two stations A & B are 110 km apart on a straight line. One train starts from A at 7am and travels towards B at 20kmph. Another train starts from B at 8am an travels toward A at a speed of 25kmph.At what time will they meet From 7 am to 8 am only A is travelling. It would travel 20 km. Now 90 km is to be covered. 90 / (20+25) =2 hours so at 10 am they will meet.
  22. 23. A train travelling at 48kmph completely crosses another train having half its length an travelling inopposite direction at 42kmph in12 sec.It also passes a railway platform in 45sec.the length of platform is Distance by 2 trains = (48+42) = 90 or 25 m/s 25 * 12=300 meters. So the length of train is 200 meters. Platform : 48 * 5/18 =13.33 m/ s 45*13.33 = 600 so length of platform = 600-200=400 meters. Answer
  23. 24. Find the time taken by a train 180m long,running at 72kmph in crossing an electric pole Speed of train = 72 * 5/18 = 20 m / s time required = 180/20 = 6 seconds. Answer
  24. 25. Two concentric circles form a ring. The inner and outer circumference of the ring are 352/7 m and 528/7m respectively. Find the width of the ring. Solution: Formula of circumference = 2 Pi * radius 2 * 22/7 * radius = 352/7 radius = 8 Formula of circumference = 2 Pi * radius 2 * 22/7 * radius = 528/7 radius = 12 thus width of ring = 12-8 = 4 answer
  25. 26. Four circular cardboard pieces, each of radius 7cm are placed in such a way that each piece touches two other pieces. The area of the space encosed by the four pieces is Solution : area of one circle = (22/7) * 7 * 7 =154 square of on one circle = 14*14 = 196 difference of area : 42 one side 42/4 =10.5 we have 4 cirlces, each has 10.5 cm of space enclosed, so total space enclosed is 42 sq. cm. Answer
  26. 27. A semicircular shaped window has diameter of 63cm. Its perimeter equals Circumference of circle = diameter * 22/7 = 63 * 22/7 = 198 it is semicircle so divide by 2 = 99 add diameter also – to denote one side : 99+63 = 162 cm answer
