Solution

## Let the speed of the train be x km/hour that of the bus be y km/hr, we have the following cases Case I: When Roohi travels 300 Km by train and the rest by bus Time taken by Roohi to travel 60 Km by train = Time taken by Roohi to travel (300-60) =240 Km by bus = Total time taken by Roohi to cover 300Km= + It is given that total time taken in 4 hours   Case II: When Roohi travels 100 km by train and the rest by bus Time taken by Roohi to travel 100 Km by train = Time taken by Roohi to travel (300-100) =200Km by bus = In this case total time of the journey is 4 hours 10 minutes   ...(i) Putting and, , the equations and reduces to    Subtracting equation (iv) from (iii)we get  Putting in equation (iii), we get   Now and Hence, the speed of the train is , The speed of the bus is .
