Question

# Two men start from two points p and q. 8km apart and walk towards each other. They meet in 80 mins. If they walk in the same direction they meet in 2 hours. Find the speed of each man.

Solution

## Let speed of two mans are x and y respectively so if they walk in opposite direction  80/60=8/(x+y) x+y=6.........(1) Now if they walk in same direction  2=8/(x-y) x-y=4.........(2) By adding (1) and (2) we get 2x=10 x=5 Hence y=1 So speed is 5km/h and       1 km/h
