Suppose the train is travelling X km/h . then it will take 360/X hour . if it speed is( X +5 )km/ h .then it will take 360/(X+5) hour. According to question -- 360/X - 360/(X+5) =48/60 h=4/5 .OR By solving the equation we find ,2250 = X2 +5X OR X

Distance=360 KM Let speed be S time (t) =360/s Other Speed=S+5 Time=360/(S+5) As per question, 360/S-360(S+5)=48/60 =>x2+5x -2250 = 0=>(x+50)(x-45)=0 Speed = 45 km/hr as speed cannot be negative
