Solution

3 : 4
Explanation:
Let the speeds of the train be x km/h and that of the car be y km/h.

Then, `120/x+480/y=8`

⇒ `1/x+4/y=1/15`                ...(i)

and `200/x+400/y=25/3`

⇒ `1/x+2/y=1/24`               ...(ii)

On solving Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get
x = 60 and y = 80
∴ Ratio of speeds = 60 : 80 = 3 : 4
