A car travelling at 60km/h over takes another car travelling at 42km/h.Assuming each car to be 5 m long,find the time taken during the overtake and the total road distance used for the overtake

7 years ago


Answers : (1)


dear pallavi





let t time is taken for overtake,and x is the total distance to overtake.

distance travelled by blue car in t sex is (x-5)m

distance travelled by red car in t sex is (x+5)m

 t=(x-5)*1000/42 =(x+5)*1000/60........(1)

  or (x-5)/42=(x+5)/60

calculate x from here. this is the required distance.

and put this value in eq (1) and calculate t .

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can. If you find any question Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly.
