## The correct option is D 429.2 kmA------------------145 km-------------M---------------X km-----------------BLet M be the meeting point. Its take time T to reach at M. total distance = (145 +x )kmTime taken by A = 145/25 hours. [as, speed * time = distance covered]Time taken by B = x/49 hoursSince, Time taken by A = time taken by B145/25 hours = 1/49 hours25x = 7105x = 284.2 kmSo, total distance = 284.2 + 145 = 429.2 km
