Case1 :When both the autos are moving in same direction. Let us assume that both autos are moving towards point B. Let the autos meet at a point C which is ahead of B.Let the distance between B and C be X. Let the auto which starts from point A be named as 1. Let the auto which starts from point... read more
Case1 :When both the autos are moving in same direction. Let us assume that both autos are moving towards point B. Let the autos meet at a point C which is ahead of B.Let the distance between B and C be X. Let the auto which starts from point A be named as 1. Let the auto which starts from point B be named 2. Speed of 1=(70+X)/7.... (1) Speed of 2= X/7.... (2) Case2: When both autos are moving towards each other. Let the 2 autos meet at a point D. Let the distance between A and D be Y. Speed of 1=Y/1....... (3) Speed of 2=(70-Y)/1.... (4) Equating speed of 1 from equation 1 and 3 and Equating the speed of 2 from equation 2 and 4, We get Y=40 X=210 Hence, Speed of auto 1= 40 km/hr Speed of auto 2= 30 km /hr read less
