#### Solution

 Distance (in km) 50 x Time (in minute) 60 12
Let the distance be x km.
$\text{ If the time taken is less, the distance covered will also be less } .$
$\text{ Therefore, it is a direct variation } .$
$50: x = 60: 12$
$\Rightarrow \frac{50}{x} = \frac{60}{12}$
$\text{ Applying cross muliplication, we get: }$
$x = \frac{50 \times 12}{60}$
$= 10$
$\text{ Thus, the required distance will be 10 km } .$
