from A at 7 am and towards B at 20 kmph. Another train starts from B at 8

am and travels towards A at a speed of 25 kmph. At what time will they

meet?

Answer : 10 am

Difficulty Level : Easy

Moderately easy

Basic Formula:

Distance = Speed x Time

Suppose the two trains meet x hrs after 7 am

Distance covered by A in x hrs = 20 x x km.

Distance covered by B in (x-1) hrs = 25 (x-1) km.

Given distance between the two stations = 110 km.

20 x + 25 (x-1) = 110

45 x = 135

x = 3 hrs.
