let hz. vel. of man is: V m/sec

rain dropes fall at vt. velocity: 10m/sec

tan x = V/10 = 12/16

V man = 7.5 m/sec


Let distance btn. X and Y be S mts   and let V be constant speed of car

so S=7200V     (fom S=Vt relation )

Since each car leave with 10 mins difference : gap btn. each car is s=V*600 = S*600/7200 = S/12

                                                        gap btn. each car is = S/12 m

            following fig. explains it:

 X -------S1-------S2-------S3-------S4-------S5-------S6-------S7------S8-------S9-------S10-------S11-------Y

case 1: So, when cars start simultaneously from X and Y

then first cars from X and Y meet at  S6 and will start to cross 6 taxis till reaching X(orY), so it'll meet a total of 7 taxis including one at X(or Y)

case 2:

after 10 mins from departure of 1st car from X(or Y) , a car starting from Y (orX) will meet a total of 8 taxis including one at X(or Y)

the cases goes on till 2 hrs , and then a car from X(or Y) will meet a total of 13 taxis including one at X and Y.


Since question 2 isn't clear for me, I have given all possible cases.

If u think , the answer is n't what u r looking for, plzz post the question clearly again .

Sorry abt the wrong ques . The last line of the ques is:-

 How many taxis coming from the other side will meet each taxi moving from Y to X?
