Then it turns left and runs for another 25 km and takes the direction back to reach the main road. In the meantime, due to a minor breakdown, the other bus has run only 35 km along the main road. What would be the distance between the two buses at this point?

#### Solution

65 km

**Explanation:**

Let M and N be two buses.

Bus M travels along the path

AP, PQ, QR, RS

Now, PS = QR = 25 km

So, AS = AP + AS = 50 km

Bus N travels 35 km upto 5.

Distance between two buses,

ST = AB -(AS + BT)

= [150 - (50 + 35)] = 65 km
