### Question 4

### Question 5

A boy walks along the three edges of an equilateral triangle at average speeds of 5 km/h, 8 km/h and 3 km/h. What is the average speed along the whole journey?

**A**

$4{44/79}$ kmph.

**B**

$5{49/78}$ kmph.

**C**

$3{38/81}$ kmph.

**D**

$7{10/27}$ kmph.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the edge of the triangle be L. Total distance travelled = 3L. Time taken = $L/5 + L/8 + L/3$. So overall average speed = ${3L}/{L/5 + L/8 + L/3}$ which simplifies to ${360/79}$, which is same as: $4{44/79}$ km/h.
