Mishra rides a bike with a constant speed of 20 km/hr from Guntur at 4 p.m and travels towards a destination Vijayawada. Prasad rides with a speed of 25 km/hr starts from Vjayawada at 5 p.m and travels towards Guntur. If the straight distance between Guntur and Vijayawada is 110km then at what time they will meet?
Assume the two riders meet at x hours after 4 p.m.
Speed of the Mishra is 20km/hr and the distance covered by him in x hours = 20x km
Speed of the Prasad is 25 Km/hr and he starts at 5 p.m.
Distance covered by him in (x - 1) hours = 25(x - 1) km
Distance between Guntur and Vijayawada is 110km.
Therefore 20x + 25(x - 1) = 110
45x = 135
x = 135/45 = 3
So they meet at 3 hours after 4 p.m.
So they meet at 7p.m
