#### Question

MCQ

A car driver increases the average speed of his car by 3 km/hr every hour. The total distance travelled in 7 hours if the distance covered in the first hour was 30 km, is

• 266 km

• 273 km

• 280 km

• 287 km

#### Solution

273 km

Explanation:

Speed of car in 1st hours 30/1 = 30 km/h

Speed of the car in 2nd hour = 30 + 3 = 33 km/hr

Distance covered in 2nd hour = 33 km

Speed of the car in 3rd hour = 33 + 3 = 36 km/hr

Distance covered in 3rd hour = 36 km

Similarly, distance travelled in 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th hours are 39 km, 42 km, 45 km, and 48 km

total distance travelled in 7 hours

= 30 + 33 + 36 + 39 + 42 + 45 + 48 = 273 km
