Two boys starting from the same place walk at a rate of 5 kmph and 5.5 kmph respectively. What time will they take to be 8.5 km apart, if they walk in the same direction?
In this type of questions we need to get the relative speed between them,
The relative speed of the boys = 5.5kmph – 5kmph
= 0.5 kmph
Distance between them is 8.5 km
Time = Distance/Speed
Time= 8.5km / 0.5 kmph = 17 hrs
