Let the distance to the top be d.
therefore, the speed of the man with escalator not moving = (d/1) m/min.
therefore the speed of the escalator with the man at rest = (d/3) m/min
When both the man and the escalator are moving, effective speed= (d/3 + d) m/min =(4d/3)m/min
Therefore time taken when both man and escalator are moving = distance / speed = d/(4d/3) min. = 3/4 min = 45 seconds

When both the man and the escalator are moving, effective speed= (D/3 + D) m/min =(4D/3)m/min .Therefore time taken when both man and escalator are moving,Time = distance / speed          = D/(4D/3) min.           = 3/4 min           = 45 seconds
Hope this cleared your concepts!
