Let the cyclist start from town (A) & man started from factory (B)


Distance travelled by a cyclist to reach point C= 30-6=24 km

Speed of cyclist= 18 km/h

Time taken by the cyclist to reach point C= Distance/speed


Time taken by the cyclist to reach point= 24/18= 4/3 h = (4/3)×60= 80 min= 1h 20 min 

The required time at which they will meet= 6:50 + 1:20 = 7h 70 min= 8 :10 a.m

Hence, The required time at which they will meet= 8:10 a.m
