1. Time taken by a train of length l metres to pass a pole or standing man or a signal post is
equal to the time taken by the train to cover lmetres.
2. Time taken by a train of length l metres to pass a stationery object of length b metres is the
time taken by the train to cover (l + b) metres.
3. Suppose two trains or two objects bodies are moving in the same direction at u m/s
and v m/s, where u > v, then their relative speed is = (u - v) m/s.
4. Suppose two trains or two objects bodies are moving in opposite directions at u m/s
and v m/s, then their relative speed is = (u + v) m/s.
5. If two trains of length a metres and b metres are moving in opposite directions at u m/s
and v m/s, then:
(a + b)
The time taken by the trains to cross each other = sec.

6. If two trains of length a metres and b metres are moving in the same direction at u m/s
and v m/s, then:

7. If two trains (or bodies) start at the same time from points A and B towards each other and
after crossing they take a and b sec in reaching B and A respectively, then:
(A's speed) : (B's speed) = (b : a)
1. Principal:
The money borrowed or lent out for a certain period is called the principal or the sum.
2. Interest:
Extra money paid for using other's money is called interest.
3. Simple Interest (S.I.):
If the interest on a sum borrowed for certain period is reckoned uniformly, then it is called simple
