#### Question

A car moves with a speed of 40 km/h for 15 minutes and then with a speed of 60 km/h for the next 15 minutes. The total distance covered by the car is:

• 100 km

• 25 km

• 15 km

• 10 km

#### Solution

25 km

Case I

Speed of the car = 40 km/h

Time taken = 15 min = 15/60 = 0.25 h

Speed = "Distance Covered"/"Time Taken"

Distance covered, d1 = Speed × Time taken = 40 × 0.25 = 10 km

Case II

Speed of the car = 60 km/h

Time taken = 15 min =  15/60 = 0.25 h

Speed = "Distnace covered"/"Time Taken"

Distance covered, d2 = Speed × Time taken = 60 × 0.25 = 15 km

Total distance covered by the car, d1 + d2 = 10 + 15 = 25 km

Therefore, the total distance covered by the car is 25 km.
