Firstly,it,s not my question.It was asked in a test by my teachers.Initially, the cars were moving with a speed of 30 KM/h(in the same direction ) by maintaining a constant difference of 5KM with respect to each other i.e 1st and 2nd car.Secondly, the 3rd car is not meeting the 1st car and 2nd car simultaneously from the opposite direction(since there is sufficient time gap between them).

velocity of A wrt C = va-vc

at time t=0 car C met car B

at t=4/60 hrs. car A will meet Car C.

distance traveled by Car A = 5km

=> 5= (Va-Vc)4/60

300/4= 30- Vc

75- 30 = - Vc

Vc = -45 kmph. (- shows opposite direction)

all the best!

The two cars are moving in same direction with same speed. So let the speed of two cars be v Km/h and velocity of car moving in opposite direction be u Km/h. So, total speed= total distance/ time= 5/1/15 (4 minutes= 4/60= 1/15 hrs.). So we will get total speed as 75 km/h. Therefore, v+u= 75 I.e., u= 75-30= 45 km/h i.e., the speed of car moving in opposite direction is 45 km/h.
