Question
A and B have to go from X to Y which are at a distance of 230 kms from each other. Adrives at a constant speed of 100 kms/hr for the first 115 kms and then at an averagespeed of 50 kms/hr for the remaining distance. B starts with an initial speed of 50kms/hr at X and drives with constant acceleration such that when he reaches Y, hisspeed is 100 kms/hr. Which of the following statement is true?a.

A reaches Y firstb.

Question
A and B have to go from X to Y which are at a distance of 230 kms from each other. Adrives at a constant speed of 100 kms/hr for the first 115 kms and then at an averagespeed of 50 kms/hr for the remaining distance. B starts with an initial speed of 50kms/hr at X and drives with constant acceleration such that when he reaches Y, hisspeed is 100 kms/hr. Which of the following statement is true?a.

A reaches Y firstb.

B reaches Y firstc.

A and B reach Y togetherd.

Cannot calculate from given datae.

None of these
The Usual Method
A covers half of the distance at 100 kms/hr and the remaining half at 50 kms/hr.Hence average speed of A =
2501001000050100150
× ×= =+
66.67 kms/hrAverage speed of B for the whole journey =
1005015022
+= =
75 kms/hr
Average speed of B > Average speed of A,B will reach Y before A does.
(Ans: b)
Estimated Time to arrive at the answer = 45 seconds.
