### Solved Time Questions with Answers

1. A car travel 70 km in 30 minutes. In how much time will it cover 120 km?

Solution:

Speed = Distance/Time

= 70 km/1/2 hr

= 140 kmph

Speed = Distance/Time

140 kmph = 120 km/Time

Time = 120 km/140 kmph

= 0.85 hr

car takes 0.85 hr to cover the distance 120 km.

2. Vinay covers 180 km by car at a speed of 60 km/hr. find the time taken to cover this distance?

Solution:

Speed = 60 km/hr

Distance = 180 km

Speed = Distance/Time

60 km/hr = 180 km/Time

Time = 180 km/60 km/hr

= 3 hr

Vinay takes 3 hrs to cover the distance 180 km at a speed of 60 km/hr.

3. A train covers a distance of 45 km in 20 minutes. Find the time taken by it to cover the same distance if its speed is decreased by 12 km/hr?

Solution:

Distance covered by train = 45 km

Time taken = 20 min = 20/60 = 1/3 hr

Speed of the train = Distance covered/Time taken

= 45km/1/3 hr

= 135 km/hr

Reduced Speed = 135 km/hr – 12 km/hr

= 123 km/hr

Time = Distance Traveled/Speed

= 45/123

= 0.365hr

= 0.365*60 min

= 21.95 min

4. A man is walking at a speed of 5 km per hour. After every km, he takes a rest for 3 minutes. How much time will it take to cover a distance of 6 km?

Solution:

Rest time = Number of rests * time of each rest

= 5*3 minutes

= 15 minutes

Total Time Taken = Distance/Speed +Rest Time

= (6/5)*60+15 minutes

= 72+15

= 87 minutes

5. A car takes 3 hours to cover a distance if it travels at a speed of 45 mph. What should be its speed to cover the same distance in 2 hours?

Solution:

Distance = Speed *Time

= 45mph*3 hr= 135 miles

Speed = Distance/Time

= 135 miles/2 hrs

= 67.5 miles per hour

Therefore, car needs to travel at a speed of 67.5 miles per hour in order to travel a distance of 135 miles in a time of 2 hrs.
