### Question 1

A cyclist travels at a speed of 8km/h. Had he travelled at 10km/h he would have covered a distance of 6 km more. What is the total distance travelled by him?

### Question 2

A boy walks along the three edges of an equilateral triangle at average speeds of 6 km/h, 2 km/h and 9 km/h. What is the average speed along the whole journey?

**A**

$3{6/7}$ kmph.

**B**

$5{2/3}$ kmph.

**C**

$2{2/9}$ kmph.

**D**

$5{1/3}$ kmph.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the edge of the triangle be L. Total distance travelled = 3L. Time taken = $L/6 + L/2 + L/9$. So overall average speed = ${3L}/{L/6 + L/2 + L/9}$ which simplifies to ${27/7}$, which is same as: $3{6/7}$ km/h.
