Question

# An elevator descends into a mine shaft at the rate of $$6\ m/min$$. If the descend stars from $$10\ m$$ above the ground level, how long will it take to reach the shaft $$350\ m$$ below the ground level?

Solution

## Rate of elevator $$=6\ m/min$$and it was started $$10\ m$$ above the ground level Depth below ground level $$=350\ m$$Total depth $$=350+10=360$$Time taken $$=\dfrac{360}{6}$$ minutes $$=60$$ minutes $$=1$$ hourMathematics
