### Question 5

A train passes two persons walking in the same direction as the train. The time it takes to move past the man running at 37km/h is 17sec, whereas the time it takes to cross the other man running at 44km/h is 18sec. What is the speed of the train?

**A**

163km/h.

**B**

164km/h.

**C**

162km/h.

**D**

165km/h.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the speed of the train be v km/h. Length of the train calculated with the data for the first man = $(v - 37) × 17$. It should equal the length obtained from the data for the second man. So $(v - 37) × 17$ = $(v - 44) × 18$. Please note that we have not converted seconds to hours because that factor will ultimately cancel away. Solving for v we get 163km/h.
